Decorate your Desktop | February 2018

And somehow it’s February and another Decorate your Desktop is at your fingertips! Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t complaining one bit that winter seems to be flying by. BUT, February to me always feels like the longest month even though it’s the shortest. January flies by with the holidays still underway, trying to get back on schedule & into a routine, and with our kiddo’s birthday smack dab in the middle, the first few weeks of January are a blur. In March, we usually get a few warmer days where we can get outside quite a bit more, making February cold, long, and brutal.

With that being said, for this month’s Decorate your Desktop wallpaper background, I chose to go with a moody floral background to hint at the year’s longest month 😉 but also a salute to Valentine’s Day. I ain’t one for Valentine’s Day, either, but it’s hard to ignore the “holiday.” Scroll to the bottom of this post to get your free downloads.

Decorate your Desktop | January 2018

Back by popular demand, the Decorate your Desktop series is back for 2018! I have had so many people reach out to me over the past several months asking about the Decorate your Desktop wallpaper background series. At the end of last year, I created a poll on Facebook to see if people were still interested in these free wallpapers. After not much interest, (maybe it’s because of Facebook’s algorithms and nobody really saw the poll itself), I decided to save my time & energy. These backgrounds are quite a bit of work, not only coming up with unique, pretty designs themselves, but then to also save them out as three separate formats for the different devices. I didn’t really think people were using them, until I stopped creating them. That’s when I received so many inquiries about the free backgrounds, seeing activity and downloads on past wallpapers, and even private messages wanting to know if I was going to ever create more.

So now that the series is back, let me know what you want to see! Do you like motivational quotes, pretty backgrounds without sayings, maybe even seeing the actual monthly calendar? Please let me know! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for the links to the Downloadable Wallpapers. Enjoy!

Decorate Your Desktop | December 2016 Wallpaper

I feel like I keep saying this, but how has another month just completely flown by??! It is already December, and in just a few weeks, we will be celebrating Christmas and an exciting New Year.

Life has been beyond crazy over here with a newborn and a rambunctious (almost) 2 year old. Emerson is so great with baby sister Everly, always checking in on her, sharing his blanket, and asking where she is the minute he wakes up every morning. I shouldn’t wish away these days, but I cannot wait until she is old enough and begins to interact with him. He already adores her and my hurt could literally burst just thinking about them growing up together.

Okay, let’s get back on track! I created this FREE Christmas Wallpaper download to add a little holiday cheer to your tech devices. As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t sure if I was going to continue free wallpapers each month and I’ve come to realization that I just don’t have time for them, and all the work I put into creating them, to keep them going monthly. I may offer more generic wallpapers each season, or switch it up with some giveaways, when (and if!) I have the time. Maybe life with two littles will get easier come spring and I can bring back the monthly wallpapers, but at this point, the Decorate Your Desktop wallpapers will be put on hiatus.

With that being said, scroll on down and get your last FREE wallpaper background for the year. And have a great month spreading cheer!!!

Decorate Your Desktop | November 2016 Wallpaper

As this time of year approaches, every single one of us are counting our blessings and being so thankful for everything we have in our lives. I know for me I am extremely blessed with a super caring and loving husband, the sweetest (and most stubborn) kiddo, a baby girl on the way, and truly the best family and friends a girl could ask for.

In keeping with this holiday theme, I created November’s Wallpaper Desktop with the words “there are so many things to be grateful for.” Because it’s true. I’m grateful for the cozy warm bed I’m sitting in right now typing this. I’m thankful for the warm cup of Chai Latte waiting for me in the morning. I’m ever-so grateful to have a slow-paced morning with my babe every morning. Don’t get me wrong, life is hard and some days (some weeks), I’m ready to throw in the towel. But really there are so so many things to be grateful for.

Get this free desktop wallpaper, hand-lettered by yours truly, below.

PS. I still haven’t decided on what to “Freebie” to offer for 2017 in place of these Decorate your Desktop Wallpapers. To be honest, there wasn’t the response I was hoping for when I suggested something new on October’s Decorate Your Desktop. I only received a few suggestions and if only a few people are taking advantage of these freebies, I don’t feel like it is worth allllll the time I put into them. We’ll see how the next 2 months of 2 kiddos under 2 go 🙂

Decorate Your Desktop | October 2016 Wallpaper

We are a few days away from October and this weather is proving it to be true. Brrrr! It is definitely time to bring out the fall scarves, jackets, and boots!

As I mentioned in my Facebook post, I am thinking about switching things up for 2017 and possibly offering something new, in place of the Decorate your Desktops. With another little babe on the way, I want to make sure that my time is spent wisely. That being said, if people simply aren’t downloading and swapping out their desktop/mobile backgrounds, I don’t feel like it’s worth my time to continue doing them.

I have a few other options in mind that I thought maybe people may find more useful and inspiring. The first are Monthly Wall Prints. I’m thinking 5×7 and 8×10 hand-lettered wall prints with an inspirational quote or seasonal phrase of some type. For these wall prints, I would charge a small fee ($3-$5) to download + purchase through my Etsy shop. Once the small purchase is made, you then will be emailed a link to download the print and use to decorate your home, office, or give as a gift.

The second option would be a Monthly Greeting Card. These would lean more generic such as a “Just Because” card making it easy to give + use no matter your current situation. My thoughts behind a simple greeting card is that there is just so much hate and sadness in the world today, if I could somehow spread even a little bit of love and kindness, I want to. No matter how small it may seem. This option would be as easy as downloading, printing, and cutting the card…perfect little lunch-time break! Something so simple could really change a friend’s, neighbor’s, spouse’s, co-worker’s day around 🙂

The last option is to simply continue on with the Decorate Your Desktops. These would run exactly as they have, offering three wallpaper options for your desktop, mobile device, and/or iPad/Tablet.

Again, I want this to be beneficial for the both of us. I spend quite a bit of time each month on these free wallpapers (coming up with a phrase, dozens of lettering + design revisions, uploading the design, plugging them into the different sizing formats, creating several social media graphics, uploading them to my website, etc.) and if people aren’t using them, I can easily allocate all this time differently. I am more than willing to give out other “freebies,” but if those won’t be taken advantage of either, I would love to spend more time on other Mint for Hue projects or with my babies 🙂 So let me know–head to my Facebook page, comment on this post, and let me know what YOU want!

As always, this month’s FREE desktop wallpapers are below.

Decorate Your Desktop | September 2016 Wallpaper

It is somehow September already, and summer has officially come to an end. How in the HECK did that happen?!? Although I know the kickoff to Fall isn’t for another few weeks, I still feel like Labor Day weekend is the last “hoorah” of summer where we usually spend the weekend out on the boat, splashing in the water, and relaxing at the beach.

If you know anything about me, I absolutely LOVE summer. But if I’m going to be completely honest, I am actually looking forward to cooler temperatures. The last few days have been so pleasant and it’s much easier chasing after an energetic toddler when it’s not 95 degrees out. I’m excited for leggings, boots, pumpkin patches, and of course, Halloween—my favorite holiday!

Now onto this month’s FREE Decorate your Desktop! This pretty little one features some soft, neutral tones of dried up hydrangeas with a lovely calligraphy quote I created. I hope you love it as much as I do. Now go have yourself an awesome September 🙂

Decorate Your Desktop | August 2016 Wallpaper

There’s been so much going on in the news lately. So much hatred, so much violence, and even more sadness. I feel like it’s such a simple concept to just be nice to people. Treat others how you would want to be treated. And if that’s just too hard to do, mind your own business and quit worrying so much about the next guy.

With all of this sadness in the world, I wanted to create a simple Desktop Wallpaper Background that reminded people to just be nice. Trust me, I have my fair share of days where I don’t have patience and people in general just annoy me. But we need to remind ourselves that we never know what someone is going through, and the smallest positive gesture could completely change their day. Let’s all take a breath, exert the smallest bit of effort into making someone’s day a little brighter and spreading a little more love. In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

Decorate Your Desktop | July 2016 Wallpaper

There really is no rhyme or reason behind this month’s Free Decorate Your Desktop wallpaper design. I wanted to create something a bit prettier, and a bit more intricate when it came to my hand-lettering style.

I found this gorgeous stock photo on Unsplash, a fabulous free high-res stock photo website. There are so many stunningly beautiful photos and it’s always so hard to pick a favorite. I try to pick one that is the most fitting for the month or season. I incorporated a beautiful phrase from an Ed Sheeran song that suits the photograph perfectly.

I’m hoping once the craziness of wedding season settles down late this summer that I’ll start blogging more frequently. To say that I’ve been slacking is a huge understatement. But when you have clients and a babe at the top of your priority list, something has to take a hit. A person just can’t do everything!

Decorate Your Desktop | June 2016 Wallpaper

I am so excited to share with you all this month’s FREE Desktop Wallpaper, “Summer Lovin.” If you don’t know by now, I’m definitely a summer lover…loving the heat, humidity, the water, sand and the sun. And a cold beverage is always a bonus, too 😉

I hand-lettered the simple “Summer Lovin” phrase over the top of a bright watercolor background, that I also created myself 🙂 Sometimes, less is more…and that’s especially the case in the summer.

So scroll below to get your FREE Desktop Backgrounds for your computer, iPad or Tablet, and mobile phone, too. And remember, sharing is caring! Copy + paste this page link to a friend to brighten up their tech, too!
