Visitor 11500 and Upcoming Graphic Release!

I've been anticipating visitor 11500 since earlier in the week as I saw the count get closer and closer. This visitor is from Clarkton, North Carolina, USA, and uses Windows XP with Internet Explorer 6.0. They came searching for background tiles on Yahoo! Search in the wee hours of the morning today. They didn't stay long -- I guess they didn't find what they were looking for here. I hope they bookmarked the site or the page anyway. Thanks for stopping in nonetheless!

I'm working on a couple of sets at the same time and thought I'd be able to release at least one today. I don't think it'll happen, so I'll save them for release in October. I'm really excited about one of the sets and I think you will be, too. It's a top header set that I call "Watching Grass Grow." If I wasn't releasing it for you, I'd use it myself on my site or one of my other web sites or blogs. It's that cool. Look for it in the coming week or so.

New Double Border Background Graphics!

Double border background sets have been offered on this site for awhile. Now, I'm offering just the backgrounds. (Why didn't I think of this before?) The first offering comes in five colors for the borders with decorative black squares on each of the two borders. They're 1000 pixels wide and 24 pixels high, optimal for use in 1024x768 resolutions pages with slight bother for those with smaller and higher resolutions. People with smaller resolution monitors will have to scroll to the right if you've got content there and people with higher resolutions will see a repeat of the left border.

Check out the double border backgrounds
now. I'll continue making a few more of these graphics for your web pages.

New Desktop Wallpaper Revisits Alaska!

This month's first offering is a desktop wallpaper of a boat just outside Skagway, Alaska, taken off the cruise ship my hubby and I were on while on our first cruise aboard a large ship ever. You may have seen another wallpaper of Glacier Bay, Alaska, on the third wallpapers page made from another photo from the same trip.

Back to this photo, our ship left dock in the early evening and this boat was right alongside for awhile. I'm not sure whether this is a fishing boat or one of the Coast Guard boats. Anyway, the original photo was treated to Virtual Painter's airbrush effect. I tried them all and liked this one. Kind of gives it a dreamy appearance.

Comes in four sizes, count 'em! Click one of the sizes that best fits your monitor's resolution and set it as desktop wallpaper. Remember, don't use this for your web pages because it'll load so darned slow it'll upset your visitors. It cannot be altered, i.e. cut into smaller pieces to be put back together either. Read the Terms of Use for details.
