Screens all day

I sit at a computer all day for work, and my favorite hobby is blogging and I can't escape the screen! What else is there to do but make it as beautiful and organized as possible? Here are a few past desktops, and my brand new one I made last weekend. Show me how you readers have personalized your screens, I'd even love to post some here as inspiration. Just send me an email with a screenshot attached!
This is the last view I had of my iBook G4 when I said goodbye and bought my new MacBook. You can see one of the Matryoshka dolls says "job hunt", and my new computer was a reward to myself because I landed a great job from that search. Maybe she was good luck.It was the middle of summer, and it was miserably-melty-molten hot every single day so I made my screen cool and refreshing to see whenever I popped open my new laptop. It reminds me of the way air feels while riding my bike fast near the water.At work I found myself with another new screen to look at! As much as I like my work, I would have loved to be outside riding around. Thank goodness I was able to bike as part of my commute to work when the weather was fine and the days were long.I made this for the fall, because soon I will be decorating trees with beautiful things and lighting it up, but not quite yet. A good compromise was made here, its not quite Christmas, but decorated trees are on my mind. (The photo is by Tim Walker)

  9. These are awesome!! I really love the first shot, & the photo in the last one is AWESOME. I am always playing around with my screen saver too. I love my apple, but I get so annoyed with my work computer. It's a PC & it just never looks as pretty as the mac. :D

  10. I love them all, especially the tree with hanging dress lights! My desktop picture is a picture I took in Costa Rica of boats in the small bay that we stayed in. It makes me happy and reminds me of how much I loved it there! :)
