It's Saturday. So How's About Some Paisleys?

A very clever friend suggested that I make some downloadable desktop wallpapers. I thought, hey, great idea! I will knock a bunch out in no time. Yeah, right. I don't knock anything out in no time. I'm working on some that are really quite snazzy, but they are taking me forever, so I'm aiming to have them finished by Christmastime.

In the meantime, I thought I'd repurpose (does this count as upcycling?) a design I did for Spoonflower into a tileable wallpaper. I chose my paisley design because it relies on a dark background that isn't so great for use on their printing system. And because I think my husband would gag if I had this printed on to fabric. I don't think he hates them, but he always looks at them and says, "That's nice. For the seventies." As this same clever friend would say, "Whatever, dude."

So, if you want some very snappy non-seventies paisleys to add to your background, just right-click or ctrl-click on the image here, and save the .jpg to wherever you save your desktop patterns. When you select this as your desktop image, make sure to select the "tile" option (as opposed to stretch to fit or center or somesuch nonsense). Otherwise, you'll just be left with a weird stretched out square-o-stupid.

What's on your desktop? I take requests. I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waiter.

I have cute birds. But I'd love a tree with bright dots and stuff.

I decided it would be better if he background were plum. Not that you asked.
