Andiamo in Bici … is Italian for ‘let’s go by bike’ or ‘let’s go for a bike ride.’ I love getting on my bike and cruising — wind, sun, and a beautiful ride around Stanley Park and English Bay is an awesome form of relaxation. I also like using my bike for chores whenever I can.
May has been busy, so I’ve kept June’s desktop wallpaper simple. Nice, ehy? Do you like it? Let me know in the comments. (I’ve started making wallpapers a few months back). See previous wallpapers.
This wallpaper displays one of my passions and an image that I am fond of and that I use on my fabric covered pins and magnets.
This month’s wall paper comes in 3 screen resolutions:
1280 x 1024 | 1440 x 900 | 1600 x 1200

It’s time for a new calendar view on your desktop. Welcome to my third desktop wallpaper in my new series “Lessons From Another Era,” inspired by childrens vintage books.
The main holiday in May is Mother’s Day on May 8th, so I felt the theme of “Where do plants come from?” somewhat tied in with mother’s day.
The wallpaper is meant to be centered on your screen leaving you room to clearly see and organize your icons.

It’s April 1st so it’s time for a new calendar view on your desktop. This is the second desktop wallpaper in my new series. The wallpaper is meant to be centered on your screen leaving you room to clearly see and organize your icons.
Click on the image to see the original size and then right click and choose “Save image as” to download to your computer. Set it on a white background for a clean and light look or try a dark gray to have the image pop out.
April 22nd is Earth Day, so it felt appropriate to focus on an earth science lesson for this month’s calendar. All my calendars for the year focus on Lessons from Another Era which are my compositons inspired by vintage children’s books.

I am starting a fun new series for my newsletter subscribers. On the first of each month, I’ll be sending out a desktop wallpaper like the one seen here. March marks the first of the series. The wallpaper is meant to be centered on your screen leaving you room to clearly see your icons. Click on the thumbnail below to enlarge it and then right click on the image, choose “Save image as” to download to your computer.
What colour will you choose to surround the image? I chose a dark gray.
I remember when I was a little girl learning in school that March was depicted as a big cloud with huge cheeks blowing out huge gusts of air. March was the month where the winds picked up and everything swirled about you. So when I saw this lesson in a vintage book, I immediately thought of March.
In keeping with my own work, each month will include a calendar and vintage illustrations or images paired with text. March’s illustrations happen to also be a DIY project. A simple and fun project for children and adults alike. I think adults especially will love taking time out to play with paper and make some cool pinwheels for the walls or to hang off the ceiling.
So, did you ever make a pinwheel? It just so happens that I never have, so I’ve had lots of fun making not one but many and I don’t think I’m finished! Check in on Thursday to see what I’ve come up with!
