Custom Screen Saver

Tired of the boring screen savers that come with your laptop?  Switch things up by designing your own.

Supplies Needed:

·      Computer (obviously)

·      Cute pictures, I took them off of my Pinterest boards

·      The website Pic Monkey

To make this, pull pictures from Google, Pinterest, Instagram, pretty much anywhere you can get pictures, and drag them to your desktop. Take a screen shot of your desktop to use for sizing on Pic Monkey. Upload the screen shot under the edit option. Change the canvas to white and then use the overlay feature to collage the pictures you downloaded. Save the photo & switch it to your screen saver.

Supplies Needed:

·      Canvas – bulletin board, poster, empty wall space

·      Pictures – from magazines, Pinterest, Instagram

Cut or print inspirational pictures and put them up where you will see them everyday. This is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to help yourself achieve your semester goals.
