WOW it’s October already?! Continuing with my theme to make a new desktop wallpaper  each month to decorate your desktop and devices,  I have a new chalkboard theme for October.  I’ve always enjoyed changing my computer desktop and iphone backgrounds to something new each month.

I couldn’t let October go with out a hint of Halloween in this month’s theme. “Something Wicked this Way Comes” is the October background.   You can download free for your computer, iphone and ipad .

I’ve made these wallpapers in 2 sizes that should fit most computer monitors, as well as a size for the iphone and ipad.

I’ve been making a new desktop wallpaper each month this year, to share with all of you.  They are not calendar wallpapers, but I like to change by backgrounds monthly. 

The nice thing is, you should be able to use these free wallpapers again next year, if you’d like

**Update:  it seems there is something a little wonky with ios 7 on the iphone, so I’ve made a wallpaper specifically sized for the iphone with ios 7 – hopefully this is something they will correct, but until then, if you have an iphone with ios 7 be sure to download the correct wallpaper.
