Hello everyone,

It is so good to be able to write a greeting to all of you! :)

I had a major life changing event this month. Many of you know that on December 9th I had a massive heart attack. I am so glad to be alive and able to tell you that. :D

I will never be the same again. I am not talking about what I went through or the 2 stents in my heart. I am talking about mentally. You can't go through something like this without rethinking your priorities and what is most important to you in life...

I won't tell you about every priority that I've set for myself, but there are a couple that you will want to know. One is that I am more committed to Desktop Nexus than ever. I still love and care about this website, in spite of the spam and neglect. You, my friends, make this website a joy to be on. I will do what I can to battle spam and stay in touch with all of you. :)

I can probably explain the most important priority in my life by talking about my December wallpapers. They are in this post in the exact order that I uploaded them. imo these wallpapers are an accurate description of my life so far this month.

"Christmas Ribbon Dance" is a simple light hearted Abstract I completed about 3 days before I went through the heart attack. (I also had a funny one to go along with it, of a somewhat psychedelic poinsettia. I never finished that one. I'll probably upload it next Christmas.)

I created "A Stained Glass Christmas" in the spirit of, "Oh gosh! I'm barely going to have any Christmas wallpapers to upload this month! I've got to get busy creating something!" :P Well, I starting having so much fun manipulating my stained glass window photo that I forgot to worry about the number of wallpapers that I might or might not upload. It felt so good to take my time and simply create something intricrate and pretty! :)

"A Wonderful Gift" has two hearts in it's design. (At first glance they may not be easy to see.) In the description of this wallpaper I've written about some of the things I went through during my heart attack. I did not go through it alone! God was with me all the way through... :)

The last wallpaper in my post, "O Holy Night" is the reason that I didn't get to upload these wallpapers until Christmas Day. (As I write these words, it is 3am where I live, and yes, it is indeed Christmas!:D) The other 3 wallpapers were ready to go up a couple of days ago. But I felt like something was missing... and after some soul searching I realized that I wanted to create a wall that told a story... the Christmas story. I hope you like it! Of all of these wallpapers, this is the one that I'd love for you to take a close look at, in part because I put so much work into it. I think I spent at least 16 hours on it!:) (I had that kind of time on my hands because my cardiologist didn't want me to go back to work or drive for a couple of weeks.)

Thank you so much for being my friends. Thank you for the care and the concern and the get well wishes that you all PMed me with and/or posted on my profile page. That meant so much to me...

Have a beautiful, wonderful, and blessed Christmas, everyone. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, have a beautiful, wonderful week ahead!

God bless us, everyone!


Elaine :)

PS. There is one Desktop Nexus member who is no longer with us. Blueangels1015/Judy went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, December 19th. Grandma Gingerbread/Joyce let me know this just today through a PM. (For anyone who doesn't know, Grandma Gingerbread/Joyce is Judy's sister.)

Joyce is extremely busy right now with funeral arrangements and many other things that must be taken care of when someone passes away. She told me that she would be on DN sporadically for awhile because of that. Here is a link to her profile page in case you would like to send her a sympathy card. (I can only imagine how rough it must be to lose a loved one at this time of year.) :(

Hi Everyone,

Many of you have probably noticed that I haven't been very active on here for the past month. I have been dealing with a lot, including the death of a relative, and my mother who's in her 90's was ill for awhile. :(

My life has calmed down now, thank goodness. I'll hopefully be able to get back to commenting on your wallpapers and thanking you for your thoughtful comments on mine. Profile Greetings & Wallpaper Comments make Desktop Nexus go 'round--- and I've hated not being a part of that!

One thing that I have done in spite of being busy, was carry my camera around. Luckily, it doesn't take long to shoot pictures, and I have been--- of the crazy weather we've been having lately! If you are from the USA or Canada, you probably know exactly what kind of weather I'm talking about. Weird on and off stuff! For example...

A beautiful Fall day on November 3rd...

Then 3 days later, it looks like Winter!

Just 1 day later, it's back to being Fall again...

But 6 days later, it's acting like late December!

No I am NOT making this up... actually, a lot of you know that for yourselves, I am sure. Here's a link to my latest journal entry. It has these photos in it and more, along with the exact dates I took them. (At one point I said to my husband, "Do you know why I'm taking so many photos right now? It's because I want PROOF that this CRAZY weather is actually HAPPENING!)


I hope you enjoy my journal... I think you'll identify with it. Even if you haven't experienced any of this loony tunes weather recently, we all have been amazed or stupified by the weather at some time or another... :P

Hang in there, everybody. May you be warm if your weather is cold, and cool if your weather is warm! :D

Greetings to all of my friends on Desktop Nexus! :D

I've spent a lot of my life chasing rainbows. I finally caught a good double bow in July --- several times --- with my camera. :P Can you use a rainbow in your life? Search for them after a rainstorm; if there is one it will be directly opposite the sun. In the meantime, here are 5 you can choose from. :)

Besides chasing rainbows, I've been busy with work & watching my 2 young granddaughters grow. It's been an interesting, happy summer for me. I'm not quite sure I'm ready for it to end. (I bet that any of you from Australia or other places in the Southern Hemisphere are ready to trade off seasons though. lol)

I never realized that the seasons are opposites in the northern and southern parts of the world until I joined Desktop Nexus. I think that GreenFroggy/Di from Australia was the first person to enlighten me. (I got curious when she was busy uploading Spring wallpapers in the Fall, I think.) That seasonal fact still fascinates me!:D

For those of you in the USA and Canada who celebrate Labor Day this Monday, I hope you have a great one! As for everyone else on DN, I hear that many of you celebrate Labour Day on May 1st. Don't worry... your turn is coming!

In any case, have a great weekend!:D

Elaine :)

Hello my sweet friend. Beautiful weekend to you.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
