Reading during the summer is an ideal way to help your kiddos keep up on their skills. And I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend a too-hot-to-play afternoon than laying in the shade with a book in hand. Some of us enjoy reading for the sheer pleasure of it, but plenty of […]

banner (4 of 4)

Earlier this Spring, I went on the hunt for burlap coffee sacks for my garden. I use them to line the bottom of my raised bed for drainage and weed barrier, to filter sunlight coming in from the south side of the yard, and this year I wanted to try my hand at growing potatoes […]

Free Desktop Organizer Template

desktop background

I used to have a laptop desktop that was so full of folders and random documents, I felt like the TV show Hoarders was going to come and yell at me for it’s condition. Really, it should have been condemned. I would be embarrassed when others would see my laptop.

Then I saw on Pinterest some desktop organizer images. What are these amazing things??!! I saw many that had different categories, calendars, photos and more. I thought to myself, “Self, You have photoshop and love to tinker around… You should make your own!” And that I did.

I’m pretty proud of this bad boy. But I didn’t want to keep it just for myself. :)

You can download one for your own computer. The dimensions are 1280 x 1000. You can clip, stretch, crop to fit your desktop. To download the full size image – click the image below. You can paste in your own photo to personalize it even further, the dimensions for that are roughly 280 x 400.
