Hi..... I just want to stop by and leave you some Joy:

A little (wallpaper) present:

A blessing;

And to wish you a wonderful, meaningful, Christmas! :D

Thank you so much for being a part of my life this year at Desktop Nexus... my favoritest place ever! :) :) :)

Love & Hugs,

Elaine :)

PS. And last but not least, your very own decorated cow! :D

Well... I thought he was a cow.... :P oh well...:D

Hi Gary,

I am enjoying the Christmas season & looking forward to Christmas itself. I hope you are also. :)

It was harder than usual for me to leave the Autumn season, however. That's because I fell in love with the beautiful Autumn leaves in my area this year. (Actually, it's still Autumn, but all of the trees here are now bare. We also had our first snowfall yesterday, so it sure doesn't seem like Autumn!)

For me, the 4 wallpapers I've just uploaded are transitional. One has Autumn colors, but 3 of the 4 are Christmas walls. I call them that because (a)they have a lot of red & green in them, and (b)2 of the 3 "red & greens" have Christmas tree shapes in them!:D

All 4 of these wallpapers were made with only "natural" ingredients... mainly, leaves. I collected the leaves I used for nearly 8 weeks! (I can just hear some of you saying, "So THAT'S what she does with her spare time... lol :)

May you have a lovely Christmas season, with many blessings to come! :D

Elaine :)

PS. If you'd like to know how I came to collect over 1,000 colorful leaves, I've written a journal post about it. Here's the link:

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   11/21/16 at 12:59am

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope that you are doing well, and have many things to be thankful for. Desktop Nexus is a big one for me, and I bet it is for you also! :)

Another thing that I'm very thankful for is Autumn. The trees are so beautiful when their leaves turn... in my "neck of the woods" it is a wonderful feast for the eyes. Perfect for a color freak like me! :D

One thing that made this Autumn truly exciting for me is that I got to go to CANADA for one glorious day! I've been trying to get there for years! (I bet that all of you Canadians are either applauding, or are thinking that I'm just a little bit nuts... lol)

The three wallpapers below were all taken in Canada, 2 by me, and one by my husband. I've written a journal post about the day we were in Canada. I hope you'll have a look at it, if only to see that I'm not totally nuts...! Here is the link to it;

I know that Canadians celebrated their Thanksgiving Day back in October. "U.S.A. Thanksgiving" is coming up this Thursday, November 24th. I hope to get by your profiles with Thanksgiving greetings... but things can get crazily busy at this time of year. So just in case I don't make it, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving today. For those of you not from the USA, I hope that you have a blessed day also, and many more to come.

Thank you all, for being such a wonderful part of my life!:D

Hi Everybody,

I hope you are doing well. :)

As I write this, I'm listening to lots of banging and crashing. It's been going on all day! At long last we are getting a badly needed new roof on our house. We've been saving up for it for 3 years. To my amazement, Katie our collie is taking all of the noise & pounding a lot better than I thought she would. Now if only I could get her resigned to traffic noises...

I'm looking forward to passing out candy to trick or treaters this Monday. But the best Halloween fun I've had so far this year is planning & designing these 2 wallpapers! I chased one of them down with my camera...and the other one took me waaaay more time to do than I ever dreamed it would. It was worth it, but...if I spent 30ish hours on every abstract I made, I'd go absolutely crazy! (Did I just hear a couple of smart alecs say that I'm totally crazy already? Rat's... the secret is out! :P)

Have a great weekend, and a super fun Halloween! :D

Elaine :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   10/1/16 at 3:40am

Hi Everybody,

Things have been crazy for me lately! It's hard for me to believe that these are the first wallpapers I've uploaded since August 21st! I was afraid that I wouldn't get any walls up this September.

It felt so good upload these just before before October 1st hit. Especially since in Michigan, where I live, a new day/date on Desktop Nexus starts at 8pm, my time!

As some of you know, I have been getting onto DN in bits and snatches, mostly to comment on wallpapers. Especially on Cow Wallpapers! Black & white cows, brown cows, cows on mountains, cows jumping over moons, cows on farms, a cow family in a rowboat, a cow riding a motorcycle! I never know what kind of a cow is going to come down the pike next! It's hard to believe that just a little over a month ago the Cow group only had a dozen wallpapers in it! Thank you everybody who has contributed to this group! It has now started it's 6th page! :D

So what's been keeping me off of DN? Part of it is that I got spoiled, I guess. I got used to having lots more time for DN because of my broken foot and being in a wheelchair. Now that I'm mobile and back to work, much of the time I had for DN is gone. If only I could fit more hours into my day!

In spite of all of that, I know I have so much to be thankful for. It is so good to be able to get around again. I've been taking all kinds of photos, mostly nature ones. Also I've made a new friend at work who breeds and shows Pekinese dogs.

My top favorite breed is (you guessed it!) collies, but it's fun to get to know another breed. I went to a Pekingese specialty show to help my friend out earlier today. When those little long haired dogs enter the show ring, they look so funny-- like furry caterpillars running around! I took a few photos of them, some of which I hope to upload to Desktop Nexus.

DN is one of my favorite places to be, and I'm going to keep right on trying to figure out how to get more time up here. I don't give up easily! :D

Elaine :)

PS. Thank you to all of you who've been dropping by my profile page, & commenting on my wallpapers... even though some of you have probably been wondering where I've been at! :D

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   8/21/16 at 8:55pm

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope you are all doing well, and having a good Summer (or Winter, depending on where you live.) The drought seems to be coming to an end in Michigan, we are finally getting some rain. There are more patches of green than brown in my lawn for the first time since early May!

Unfortunately, a lot of the Southern USA is getting Too Much Rain... I hope all of you that live down South are managing to hang in there & stay afloat. I've been praying for you & I'm sure others have also.

Speaking of my greener lawn brings cows to mind...grazing cows, that is. But actually, I don't get to hang around with cows much, since I don't live in farm country. The closest that I get to cows is when I make it to a Fair. I love fairs, and the farm animals are my favorite part!

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll get to a fair this year. Although I'm walking on my newly healed foot, I still don't have much stamina for walking or standing very long. The cow walls below are actually from a Fair that I went to 2 years ago.

Last month I happened to drop in on DN's Cow Group. I was amazed, and saddened to see that there were only 12 wallpapers in it! The last time one was added (one of mine) was in 2014. (There are now 16 wallpapers as I've just added 4 more.)

So....welcome to Cow Group Open House/Invitation Day! :D

I've been checking around & see that many of you have cow/cattle walls you could add to this group. In fact, I may drop by some profiles and point out some you could add... I've seen some really neat ones! Don't wait for me to ask you though... feel free to join now! :)

I hope you feel mooooooved to join up. Have a beautiful day, and keep an eye out for cows! If you spot any, herd them straight into the cow group! :D

Hi Everybody,

I've come by to say hello... and to report that I feel like I just burst through the sound barrier...or something like that...:P I've finally uploaded my first wallpapers since early in June. One thing after another kept getting in the way!

I've also finally written a journal post, been wanting to do that for a while too. Here it is: /winging-it-12053/

If you are an American, have a Happy 4th of July! If you are not, I hope you live in a country that has a holiday just like it to celebrate!:D

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted you to know that today I drove my car for the first time since my accident in October. It went fine.

Also, it looks like I'll be going into work tomorrow and seeing how it goes. On one hand I feel torn because working will mean less time for Desktop Nexus. (Which is why I went into a wallpaper uploading frenzy, today, I guess.)

On the other hand, I have been feeling somewhat restless & sort of wondering what it would be like to go back to a more normal life. As much as I love my collie, there are times when I think we've been getting on each others nerves a bit.

I hope all is well with you. Have a peaceful & blessed Sunday... :D

Elaine :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/24/16 at 11:59pm
Guess what!?!

I am

....exactly 4 years on Desktop Nexus!

If I hadn't joined DN 4 years ago today, we wouldn't even know each other! How long have you been a member? Put it in the wallpaper comments, if you'd like!

Have a fantastic day! :D

Elaine :)

PS. I've been coming around quite a bit lately, I know. I'll be returning to work soon, I'm not sure quite when... I won't have as much time on DN, when that happens--so I guess I'm living it up while I can. :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   9/28/15 at 10:31pm

And to wish you a happy Fall! I'm crazy about this beautiful time of year!

(I know that those of you south of the equator are starting to enjoy spring...I hope you find some lovely seasonal beauty also!) :D

Wherever you live...

Elaine :) :) :)
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   7/17/15 at 7:09am
Hi Gary,

I'm flying to your profile:

to wish you a Happy Belated 4th of July!

I Wanted to drop earlier, by but family matters prevented me...
So here I am now instead! I hope you've been doing well. :)

I've been having a very busy but interesting summer. I'd like to share a part of it with you.

Some robins moved into my backyard in early June, to raise a family. Meet the Boss Robin:

And the dog he was convinced was his enemy;

The robin did his darndest to drive Katie away. It's quite a story--but it does have a happy ending. I put it in my Journal for you to read. :) I had a lot of fun writing it & choosing the photos to go with it.

I'm so glad that I've finally gotten to come by...I've missed you and everybody else on DN!I hope I'll be able to drop by more often now. Have a lovely weekend! And if you've uploaded any wallpapers that you'd like me to see, feel free to drop them off on my profile!:D


Elaine :)

PS. I'm also happy that Desktop Nexus is just about back to normal again!:D I bet you are too. :)
