November 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy November, everyone!

We did it! We are so close to the end of 2020! I hope you are all having a good start to your month, and mostly importantly, I hope everyone has either voted or has a plan to vote on the 3rd! This election is so important, let's show how much we care about our community's future and well being by showing up and voting.

October 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy October, everyone.

A short and sweet blurb about this month's illustration, because even before we're properly into the Fall Season, our Holiday prep at the Paper Raven Co. Studio is going at full steam!

I wanted to do a simple illustration to capture some of the Halloweenie things I look forward to this month! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and because we're not sure exactly how we're going to be celebrating this year, I wanted to at least celebrate with a sort-of spooky desktop wallpaper. Burning question: what was your BEST Halloween costume growing up?

Be well this month, remember that it's still important to have fun, to rest and to dream; and remember that life is bigger than difficult moments.
(Also please go vote early!)

September 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy September, friends.

For this month's illustration, I wanted to capture that between-season feeling. We're not really in Summer, and we're not really in Fall quite yet. It feels like we're between seasons in our lives right now too, and I think many can relate to that. We're waiting to exhale on so many aspects of life right now, but I'm confident that if we put one foot in front of the other, and keep moving forward with good intentions and open hearts, we will get to a better outcome for all. :) I also wanted to include mushrooms and butterflies in this month's wallpaper because we have so many in our yard right now!

August 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Welcome to August, friends. We've made it this far,
and that's quite an accomplishment.

I really wanted to focus this month's illustration on intentions. What are you seeking this month? Rest from the uncertainty of the world and the future? Peace for ourselves when everything seems so divided? Recognition of the real issues we're fighting to resolve? Or perhaps you're seeking Positivity as a way to move forward through this time. Maybe it's Resources to grow your passions so you can contribute to this world in a meaningful way. Maybe it's simply a moment to catch your breath. Whatever you're seeking this month, I hope that you read these words and take comfort in them... that the more we spend our energy on creating the new, the more quickly we'll see those changes in our lives. Take a moment today to say them out loud, and put them out into the Universe. She hears you :)

July 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy July, everyone! It's an understatement to say that the last few months have been a challenge, and also a revolution of thought and action. Exciting and difficult changes are starting to happen, and we at Paper Raven Co. are committed to continuing in this fight.

That said, the importance of resting and appreciating the simple joys of life has become a critical point of balance for many of us. I wanted to illustrate something that simply just made me happy, something that felt hopeful. Additionally, it was only fitting to focus on the color yellow this month: a color symbolizing awareness, education and new thought, mixed with optimism and hope for the future.

Thank you so much for your patience and overwhelming support of my decision to postpone our June Desktop Wallpaper to hold a space for important conversations about race and allyship. I was so grateful to receive so many kind emails from you all, and I'm happy to share June's Desktop Wallpaper with you now! Many of you asked for my previous graphic to be converted into a wallpaper, and I wanted to make sure this one did not include a calendar, so it could be enjoyed anytime.

May 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy May, everyone. We have been over here baking way too many brownies, doing a little bit of stress-eating (relatable content?) and taking a lot of long walks through our neighborhood. Mostly, we have been trying to focus on the bright spots in this current situation. I'll be the first to admit that some days are easier than others! In that spirit, I wanted to create May's Desktop Wallpaper from a place of joy and inspiration from our time outdoors. The happiest moments of my days have been when Daniel, Patty and I take walks around our neighborhood and admire the new flowers blooming everywhere. We are so privileged to live in a beautiful, safe place with nice weather, and I have been doing everything to keep that top of mind so I can use the support we're receiving as a business and turn it around to help our neighbors and local economy.

I also want to take a moment to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU.
Like, a from-my-bones thank you.

 
I was very unsure at the outset of Covid-19 where we would be as a business, or how we would navigate the uncertain road ahead. I have been truly blown away by the support we have received - kind words, messages, sharing my work on Instagram, and yes, orders! You all showed up for us - for me - in a BIG WAY. I wish I had words to adequately express how appreciative I am, and how big of an impact you have made for me and my little family. Thank you!

Don't forget that we have a Special Mother's Day Gift Guide put together, and you can use code STAYHOME for 15% off your order!

April 2020 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy April, I hope you are staying safe and well during this uncertain time. I wanted to bring a little happiness into your inbox today with this Sweet Snail - he's toting his home along with him. To me, a snail was the perfect metaphor for this time in our collective existence: we've all been forced to slow down (which in some ways has been a blessing), we're all curled up in our homes, and we've been given an opportunity to take in the world around us and our values with more clarity than ever. Also, who doesn't love a cute little snail? I hope this brings you joy.

Happy March, everyone! Even though the weather has been like riding a rollercoaster lately, on warmer days I've really been enjoying my afternoon walks with Patty, seeing all of the new life and greenery peeking out, ready for Spring. I take a lot of comfort in the Cycles of Nature - they are a beautiful demonstration in balance. Here is a wonderful quote I read earlier today that I wanted to share with you: 
 

Nature does not hurry;
yet everything is accomplished.
- Lao Tzu
