I gave my computer a facelift | How About Orange

I gave my computer a facelift

Yesterday I grabbed a couple new computer wallpaper freebies from Simple Desktops. Both with a bit of orange, of course. I love these for their flat fields of color that A) don't hurt my eyeballs and B) enable me to find my files. I chose Vinyl Record by Daniel Waldron and Orange Pencil by Jake Dugard.

Very nice! I love the record one! The egg design is cute too -- reminds me of polka dots (my obsession)! :)

Can't believe you didn't choose " chops"! ;)

I know, I know! I liked the illustrations on these two better.

I literally just had the Vinyl Record as my desktop, until I replaced it with this guy:

super cute, i'm always surprised at how a new screen saver can brighten my day!

Jess said...

Caleb, right on. That's the dream!

Bek said...

Too funny, I was just looking through there the other day. I almost chose chops.

Also, as I was browsing just now I saw this cute little Christmas Camper. Then I saw who the designer was ;)

Thanks for the link!! At the moment my background is grey, because I can never find my files with other backgrounds!
This will brighten my day :)

From here, anyway, the link is broken, with a 502 message. I also got a link that asked me to give my email saying I "won!" I hope it gets fixed, I love these simple wallpapers and have some, was looking for one for a friend.

Jess said...

Eek, that was one of my favorite wallpaper sites! Looks like the links to the individual papers still work, but not the main site. Fingers crossed that it will return!

Jess said...

And it's back.
