New Things: Desktop Wallpaper & The Monthly

As this posts, I am beginning my pathology med school exam. Then there’s pharmacology on Wednesday, and another sucker of a test on Friday. Thank God for WordPress and scheduled posts! Oh, and hey, what do you think of the new design?

I must apologize to my email subscribers because when I switched from Feedblitz to Feedburner for handling my subscriptions (didn’t like Feedblitz), I lost your addresses!

And Now For a Special Treat…


I’m very proud to introduce the start of a monthly series of desktop calendar backgrounds. Each month we will feature a gorgeous desktop background with handy calendar, and you will only find it on Pretty Shiny Sparkly. All will be pretty, girly, feminine, and oh-so-chic. All will assert your stylish femininity. Click here to download & visit the new desktop downloads section.

In essence, Pretty Shiny Sparkly is expanding: I’m no longer just prettying up the web, I’m prettying up your desktop! And I couldn’t be more excited to bring this to you.

Click here for this month’s gorgeous calendar, designed exclusively for Pretty Shiny Sparkly by the amazing and talented artist Yasuko Makino.

If you’d like to illustrate a PSS desktop calendar please email me with samples of your work.
