calendar: august is for the birds

This month, I have something a little different for the calendar. Sort of. First, it's a bird and feathers. I'm not super keen on these things in real life, but as a drawing on my computer screen, I'm okay with it. But it's also a different style from my usual look. I was aiming for something a bit more folk-scandinavian, and used some inspiration from this wreath mobile project.

What this also means is that August will have a few bird and feather projects and printables! I've even teamed up with Nancy from Do Small Things with Love to do a mini blog hop. So...be thinking of bird posts and projects, because we'd love to see and share what you're working on with this theme!

For now, get your computer, tablet or phone ready for August!

To use the iPhone and iPad versions, click the link for the wallpaper you want. When it opens, touch and hold the image until it pops up with the option to save. After you've saved the image, go to your settings, choose wallpaper, then find the image you've just saved.

Or, if you would like to use these feathers past August or in future years, I've also made some without the calendar part!

To use the patterns for tiling, on your desktop settings, choose "Tile". The patterns for tiling will also work as a background on things like Twitter! A feather background would be pretty perfect on Twitter, right?

Look out though! August will fly by if you're not careful!
