About Me:I am a wife of 59 years to my high school sweetheart, mother of 3, grandmother of 7 and great grandmother of 5.

I design background themes for Firefox and wallpapers to match. I use Photo Shop to make my wallpapers and Persona themes. I learn something new to do with Photoshop every time I use it. I love taking photos when I can get out to do so. The foggy backgrounds I use are partly from photos I have taken of the foggy fields, etc.

I started a blog and you can check it out at: http://madonnaspersonas.blogspot.com/
I don't keep it up like I should but there is only so many hours in a day. But check it out sometime you have an extra minute and become a follower!

I was asked to make themes for Brand Thunder: https://bt-engage.com/ People who use Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox can use my themes from their site. You can get most of my themes from Brand Thunder at: http://gallery.brandthunder.com/en-US/gallery/All/search?p=MaDonna&search.x=0&search.y=0 I am making a lot of them to match my wallpapers also and if so, I usually add the link for it with the wallpaper.

I would like to thank all of you for your wonderful comments and I must apologize for not being able to answer them. I DO READ THEM! And love knowing you are enjoying my work. I just can't take the time to respond, but I want you all to know I read each and every one.


Interests:family, my motorcycle which I don't ride anymore because of age! Learning to use Photoshop and working on designs every day as many hours as I can. Trying to keep up with my grandkids and great grandkids.
Favorite Music:country
Favorite Books:suspense, thriller, legal military and spy novels
Favorite TV Shows:Sons of Anarchy, Longmire, Heartland, Game of Silence,
Favorite Quotes:My Dad taught me that you have to look out for yourself, because if you don't, no one else will.

Hi Everybody,

I'm dropping by to wish you a safe & thoughtful Remembrance Day/Memorial Day Holiday. :) Even if this isn't your country's day to remember those who gave their lives in battle, you will want to look at the wallpaper description to my poppy wallpaper, below. I learned some things about poppies and their special meaning for people all over the world-- thanks to a Canadian poet who fought in World War 1.

If it seems like I've been a little scarce up here lately, it's not your imagination. My foot is well enough now that I've been able to return back to work. I've written a short journal entry about that: here is the link to it if you are interested:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal /getting-back-to-normal-11811/

In Michigan, we've been having beautiful weather lately. Now that I can finally walk around in my yard again, I've taken advantage of that with my camera. I've been snapping all sorts of Spring pictures. I missed almost 2 whole seasons thanks to being confined to my wheelchair, so I guess I'm trying to make up for lost time!

I hope that you are enjoying good weather wherever you live. Have a beautiful week!

Elaine :)

(or who HAVE served it!!!)

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 :)

I spotted this smile on somebody's profile... and I caught the smile bug! It's very contagious! Pass it on to someone you care about. Wouldn't it be nice to see all of Desktop Nexus smiling today? :D :D :D

Have a cheerful day! :D

PS. If you go to someone's profile and the smile is already there, just leave it again anyway. The more smiles a person has, the better off they are! :D :D :D :D :D

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/24/16 at 11:42pm
PS. Actually, of course, I got acquainted with you on Get Personas... :)
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/24/16 at 11:41pm
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   4/22/16 at 10:55pm

Greetings, Everyone! :D

It's Springtime in North America, and it's finally starting to show up more. Tiny leaves are just starting to unfurl on the maple tree in my back yard. Flowers are blooming; everything from dandelions to daffodils. Often I can sit out in the yard without a jacket.

I hope you are having delightful weather wherever you live. I know that south of the equator, you are getting into the Fall season. My wish for you are beautiful Autumn leaves and good walking weather.

(By the way, guess how I learned that it's Fall south of the equator? From all of you Aussies on DN! :D)

Wherever you live, have a lovely day, and a great weekend! :D

Elaine :)

PS. I've written a new journal entry about wobbly walking, working...(?) and a special anniversary I'll be celebrating this Sunday.

Whatever else you do, have a marvelous day! :D :D :D

Conjoined twins walk into a bar in Canada and park themselves on a barstool.

One of them says to the bartender, "Don't mind us; we're joined at the hip. I'm John, he's Jim. Two Molson Canadian beers, draft please."

The bartender, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers. "Been on holiday yet, lads?"

"Off to England next month," says John. "We go to England every year, rent a car and drive for miles. Don't we, Jim?" Jim agrees.

"Ah, England!" says the bartender. "Wonderful country... the history, the beer, the culture..."

"Nah, we don't like that British crap," says John.
"Hamburgers and Molson's beer, that's us, eh Jim? And we can't stand the English - they're so arrogant and rude."

"So, why keep going to England?" asks the bartender.

"Gives Jim a chance to drive."

PPS. Lovely wallpaper! I just voted it up and favorited it. :)
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/12/16 at 9:57pm
PS. Be sure to read the my latest journal post (the link is in the greeting below) and you will know the latest about my recovery from the car accident. Which reminds me... I'm overdue to check out your blog, I'll have to get over there soon. I hope you are doing well! :)
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/12/16 at 9:55pm
Hi Donna,

I hope you are doing well, and are at peace with the weather in your part of the world. I say that because it's supposed to be Spring here in Michigan. Well, 2 days ago we got an inch of snow that actually stayed on the ground! Thank goodness it finished melting away the next day. It's acting like Springtime here once again.:)

I've been thinking in rainbows lately. I have a tendency to throw every pretty color I can into one wall, but this time, I decided to do something different.

I'm giving each primary color it's own wallpaper this time. I'll soon be adding aqua-blue, blue, purple, & other colors to this "lacy" set.

Of the "lacies" that I've uploaded so far, this green wallpaper is my top favorite.

I like it the best because I'm finding it to be therapeutic! It has a vast 3 dimensional quality that the other 3 color-walls lack. When it's on my computer screen, I find it very soothing & calming, kind of like being deep in a quiet forest. Maybe it will have the same effect on you. :)

The 2 "black & blue" wallpapers aren't part of the "lacy" set. This one, however means a lot to me.

I named it "My Shiny New Shoe(s)," in part, because I just got a new pair. The shoes are to help me start walking again with my newly healed right foot. I did not deliberately try to make a "shoe abstract" but I was thrilled when a shoe "showed up" while I was designing this wallpaper! :D

This wall ties in with my latest journal entry. It's about starting walking again--and running into some unexpected dilemnas while I do so!


If you are dealing with health challenges of any kind, I think you'll appreciate it. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who is dealing with or has dealt with the perplexities of trying to heal. In fact, if you have your own "trying to heal/get back to normal" story, I would love to read it. :)

May you have a bright color-filled day...& be able to find at least one thing to smile about. :D

Elaine :)
