Free Background Picture

Hi Lovelies,

here’s a free background picture for you to use on your Laptop or tablet computer 🙂 Enjoy!

I had a really bad week with my dog being diagnosed with terminal stage cancer in her lungs, finding out I’m going to have to look for a new job 3 month earlier than anticipated and also having some general heartache…

Hope your week went better.

Spring is here!

It’s so nice outside recently so I had the urge to get some pics of the flowers that are blooming now everywhere. So yesterday afternoon i was crawling around on my neighbours frontyard. Oh boy that must have looked so silly. I politely waved to every passing car so they don’t think I’m a weird creeper. 🙂

I even had the luck to catch a bee in some of the photographs. Love crocuses. One of my favorite spring flowers. They come in so many shades and colors. Feel free to use the big horizontal Image as a Background Picture for your Laptop or Computer Monitor. It’s currently mine 😉

Here are the results!

Valentine’s Day Card Freebie

The big day in February is coming closer and closer and of course we all get a little lovey dovey at this time of the year.

Yes, me too 🙂 And that’s why I created this free Valentine’s Day Card for you. Hurray!

To tell you why I chose this text is pretty easy. It’s a cliché. I’m german as most of you know by now and I hear millions of clichés about us all the time since I live in the states. One of them is that we’re not very affectionate people. In fact I agree in some points. We’re not big into hugs and saying I love you all the time to friends or even family. Don’t ask me why! I’ve no idea. But that’s just how it is. Don’t worry it’s not sad it’s just our mentality 🙂

But  that explains why my card says: Shut up & Kiss me. I think this desrcibes my nationality pretty much and I really like it (since I use that sentence all the time) 😉

I designed two color themes so pick whatever you like best.

I hope you like it!
