PS Check out my DIY at the Minnetonka Moccasins blog. I’ll be doing one more and then hosting a contest for one lucky reader to win my favorite pair of moccs. It will be open to US and South African residents!

On any given day I (and you, and everyone else) am constantly staring at my tech, whether it’s my mac, iPhone or iPad, some kind of screen is usually commanding my attention.

Here for your viewing and downloading pleasure I have a desktop background and two iPhone/iPad/tablet lock and home screens (click through above, and if you don’t know how here are some instructions for iphones).
