Desktop iPhone and iPad January Chalkboard Wallpaper


Every month I like to change my computer desktop and iphone backgrounds to a fun desktop wallpaper.  This month I decided to make one of my own and and share it as a free download for TidyMom readers.

Free January Desktop Background Wallpaper

Chalkboard look it all the rage right now and I thought it would make a cute background for my computer, iphone and ipad!  I made them in 2 sizes that should fit most computer monitors, as well as a size for the iphone and ipad.

 After you save, find the image you just downloaded.  If you use Windows, find the image that you just downloaded on your computer and right click that image. A box will pop up and click Set as Desktop Background.

If you use a Mac you do the same thing; when you right click on the image you saved, a box will pop up and you’ll want to click Set Desktop Picture.

    Cheryl, 10 years ago I am pretty sure you and I would have met at some sort of Scrapbooking event. You always have such fun and creative ways of taking the ho-hum out of everyday life. Happy New Year!
