Well, as the -19c degree weather hit, my lunchour walks/shops/eating out also took a hit. As unhealthy as it is, I have spent this week's lunch hours playing aroud with Photoshop and 'crafting' these fun desktop backgrounds.

This one, I took a swatch of the rug from here:http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/2007/11/oh-to-be-a-litt.html (thanks Posie get Cosy!!) and pieced it together:

This is the one that started the whole thing off - I found this great vintage cotton printed shirt, but it was extremely short and I couldn't figure out how to wear it! I brought it into work, scanned the print and then decided I'd try it under a black sweater vest.

I LOVE the print, at any rate...

AND my favorites...I saw this poster posted on CRAFT magazine's blog (I think!?) and had to do something with it!! The background is from the Dover clipart sampler!

After making these, I decided that none of them were terribly appropriate for my work computer. I work as an archivist for the school district, and though something like this might be more appropriate...and cuter!

I went even further, and 'wrote' my weekly appointments, notes and meetings on the 'blackboard' with a chalk-like font.

I also adapted it to send to a friend:

I certainly had fun making them- what do you think!?

Please, feel free to use these if you like! They're linked to my flickr account - you can download the large size/resolution from there...
