Greetings to everybody! :)

Although I've been logging in to DN everyday, I haven't been very active. Case in point... I haven't uploaded any wallpapers this month... until today, and it's the very last day of the month!

I have to admit that part of it is I've been watching all of the Coronavirus/Covid 19 TV news. (That's about all the news there is, these days!) I've watched in horrified fascination as the numbers of sick people go higher and higher. At least the TV news does one good thing, it leads me to pray, again & again & again for nurses, doctors, and other medical personnel. Also for all of the people who have fallen ill from this hateful virus...

In Michigan we are under "Stay at Home" orders. I think every state in the USA should be doing that-- I feel sorry for people in places that do not have these orders. One of my sisters who lives in another state told me she wishes so much that their governor would give Stay at Home orders too, so everyone will be safer.

At this point, I want to apologize to everyone who belongs to my Cows, Sheep, and Balloon Groups. Normally, I favorite and comment on all of the wallpapers in those 3 groups. I just haven't had it in me to do that lately. :( I may not be getting back to that very much until the pandemic is more under control and less worrisome.

If you have uploaded wallpapers to any of those 3 groups that you would really like me to see and comment on, post them directly on my profile, and I'll try to do better. For that matter, if any of you have ANY walls you think I would appreciate, post those on my profile page too. Frankly, I could use some beautiful walls right now, to keep my mind off of the latest Covid-19 woes.

The 3 wallpapers that I've just uploaded are below. The first wall especially, was inspired by the Covid-19 situation. I hope it will make you smile. We can all use something to laugh at these days...

Whatever you do, take care of yourselves and your loved ones! I hope we DNers can all get through this pandemic safely!

Giant Hugs,

Elaine :)

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!

Hugs,

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.) :(

Happy Halloween! Don't eat too much candy... save a little for the trick or treaters! :P :D

Elaine :)

(If you don't live in America and your country doesn't observe Halloween, feel free to have some candy anyway!) :D :D :D

Hi Jean,

I haven't been on DN as much lately due to ongoing carpal tunnel problems and also working more hours. I hope you've been doing well. Have a beautiful week ahead! :D

Elaine :)

Hi Everyone,

This is quite a train of wallpapers I have here... pun intended. I don't often put up this many in one day. I uploaded them to celebrate my new group; "Traffic Signals nSigns." I've been wanting to start it since February, but I decided to wait until DN was back up & running again.

My first wallpaper is rather unusual, I know. Unfortunately, I made it out of necessity. If you do nothing else--- read the words in italics at the bottom of this purple wallpaper's description! What I have to say there will be of great interest to you, especially if you are planning to start any new DN groups.



There is one more wallpaper that I made out of necessity also. This one shows the Traffic Signals nSigns Group Avatar.


The rest are walls that I made especially for the group. I hope that you'll decide to join it! :D Here is the link in case you are interested...

https://www.desktopnexus.com/groups/traffic-signals-nsigns/

One more thing. I've written a journal post that is relevant to the group... Very little to read... Most of it is... Wallpaper Pictures!!! Some of them might even be yours. Check and see if you may have walls that fit into this group uploaded already. :) Or you may get some fresh ideas for this group... many of these wallpapers are absolutely beautiful. Others are very humorous. At any rate, here's the journal link:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal/my-wallpa...

Have a wonderful week, everybody. I hope you decide to join the group. It's going to be fun to belong to!

Hugs,

Elaine :)

Wow... you changed your Avatar to a beautiful tree! I love your Avatars!!! :D
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   7/4/18 at 12:52am

Greetings everyone,

I hope you are doing well... and if you live anywhere near me, I hope you are managing to stay cool. With temperatures in the 90's that may not be easy!

I'm looking forward to being with family and seeing fireworks during the next few days. Here is what I wish for you;

To all of the Canadians who just celebrated Canada Day...and to all of the US Citizens who are celebrating Independence Day, I hope you've had or will have a wonderful holiday. :)

To everybody else... I sincerely hope that you are living in a country where you have freedom, not fear. If you don't live in such a place, I hope that you can get to a better place and make a new life there.

One thing is certain...freedom is a blessing that none of us should take for granted. I am so thankful to be an American.

Thank you all, for being part of Desktop Nexus. It would get mighty lonely around here without you!

Elaine :)

PS. I am a Christian too.. I hope you don't mine if I fan you... :)
CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   7/3/18 at 1:34am
Gee you have a fun avatar... :D I noticed it when I was checking out the sheep group to see if it had any new wallpapers. Glad you joined it. Have a great evening! :D

Elaine :)
