Christmas wallpaper and stationery pages done, lots of new stuff, new December Desktop Calendars

Hi everyone, I have finished my Christmas Stationery and Christmas Wallpaper pages. I have made many new ones since the last time I posted. Go check them out!
I also have a new December Desktop Calendar for each new wallpaper I made. It's possible I may make another Christmas set or two (stationery and wallpaper) but I'm not sure at the moment.
What a huge job that was!
I already have my New Year pages done (unless I make more New Year stuff), so I'll be working on the Valentine pages next I guess!
All of the new items are on the New Stationery and New Wallpaper pages as well.
Now I'm off to watch the finale of Survivor. I have Holly in a Survivor pool and I'm surprised she made it this long but grateful! When she buried Dan's $1600 shoes at the beginning, I thought she was done for (what kind of idiot brings $1600 shoes to the jungle anyway LOL).
Have a great night everyone!
Hugs, Ellie

Christmas Stationery page uploaded, lots of new stationery

I have my Christmas Stationery page up. If the stationery was significantly redone or new, they're also on the New Stationery page. At the bottom of the Christmas Stationery page I have some old stationery that I know people still like and use but I won't be redoing them or adding them in different formats. All of the older ones are in Incredimail and Outlook Express formats, and the newer ones are also in eml format.
Can't believe I'm getting my site back into shape, it's been a long, long time and so much hard work and so much more to do!
Take care, Hugs, Ellie

Christmas wallpaper page up, more December calendars, Wallpaper Tutorial up

December 14, 2010 My Christmas Wallpaper page is up. Some of the ones that are either new or completely redone have already been put on the New Wallpaper page as well as on the Christmas Page. Some of the ones that are kind of old and I don't want to redo and make into the other sizes are at the bottom of the page. Not all of the wallpapers on the Christmas page are on the New Wallpaper page.
I also just added another format. I've always been unhappy with the jpg format, especially for reds, it leaves what's called artifacts in the red (kind of like streaks and wave patterns). I just did some research and found out that you can use png files for wallpaper. Png files are so much nicer than jpg files. WinXP supports it natively and Windows Vista and Windows 7 doesn't, but there are workarounds. For those wallpapers in png format, I've provided both jpg and png. I've currently just got some png format on the Christmas page and only those with a significant amount of red in them. From now on, I'll make the wallpaper in both formats.
I've put my Wallpaper Tutorial on a page on it's own instead of on the Wallpaper Index page now, and it explains how to use and set wallpaper, including pngs, and links to some free third party programs that help set and cycle wallpaper and control your desktop icons as well. Note: this tutorial is not HOW to make wallpaper but how to use it.
I also have more December Desktop Calendars up. Wow you have a lot to choose from this month. Don't get spoiled now, it's only because I'm working on the wallpaper pages and making a desktop calendar for each one as I go along. I save them as layered templates so they can be reused another time, something I wish I'd done from the start, especially on reworking all of that old wallpaper, and having to redo things from scratch!
I also just redid the What's New page as I was tired of the old one. I was going to make it look like a blog but I kind of like this for now. I hope to start adding links in the two sidebars for my favorite sites, etc.
Now it's time to put together my Christmas stationery and get that page done. Cutting it close! I can't believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!
Have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Ellie

Working on my Christmas pages for Wallpaper and Stationery and hope to have it done in a day or two. Keeping fingers crossed!

More December calendars, 2 calendars needed to be replaced and 2 January Calendars

I've added more Desktop Calendars and will have the Winter Wallpaper page ready to upload in a day or two (I'll post here when I do that).
If you've downloaded 2 of my December Desktop Calendars, Holiday Memories or First Snow, go back and get them again, ok? I reuse templates for the calendar grid and while I remembered to change it to December 2010, I forgot to change the numbers to the right places. Probably hubby's fault. It always is, distracting me when I'm trying to focus. LOL
I also have two January 2011 calendars up. Decided you all had enough December ones to choose from!
Have a great night!
Hugs, Ellie

Keep an eye on my Desktop Calendars page as I am adding more calendars to it as I'm redoing my Winter Wallpaper page. I've added a few more in the last few days.
As soon as I am done with it, I'll be reuploading my Winter Wallpaper page.
I'll notify you here when I do.
Have a great day! Hugs, Ellie

Hi everyone. I've been hard at work and have 6 December Desktop Calendars available so far and I've also reuploaded one of my translations, Jetje's Tutorial called Winter Greeting.
I've injured my back and it's slow going but I'm getting it done a bit at a time.
I hope you enjoy what I've got so far!
