Before last fall, I didn't pay much attention to my desktop background. I generally used a system default image or a photo that I liked. I didn't put much thought into it because I honestly didn't feel as though it mattered. Once I started school and began to spend my time on my laptop, it was a little boring to flip open the same old screen. A classmate of mine uses inspirational quotes and gave me the idea. It's a great way to feel motivated, inspired, or even to give yourself a little giggle every time you look at the screen. I sometimes take images that I find on Pinterest (where else, really? Am I the only one that's addicted?) but this month I created my own image.
The quote from JRR Tolkien that I've shown above is one of my favourites. I took a little creative liberty and rephrased it a bit - the original quote is "not all those who wander are lost." Such a great sentiment for the dreamy wanderers amongst us. I created a nifty desktop picture from it and thought that you might like it, too. To use as your background:
- right-click on the image
- use image as desktop picture
- adjust your desktop as needed - you can right-click when you are on your desktop to do so
- this image looks best as a centered image - choose an appropriate background colour and you're all set!
I'd love to hear from you if you use the image in another fun way, too. Here are some ideas: print it off, make a card, create a multimedia piece of art, stick it on your refrigerator, give it to a friend, sky's the limit. Just make sure to only use it for personal use. Thanks for being a dear :)
