Changing out my desktop background is one of FAVE things to do at the start of each month.

I've changed them out so often, that I know exactly what I like and what works for me. 


Something elegant and simple. Not visually busy and inspiring. Something that will motivate me to keep my desktop tidy and uncluttered. 

I've found a calendar to be super handy, and have recently added a section for my Top 3 goals. I like how they are always the first thing I see in the morning when I start my day.

(TIP: close your windows down at the end of your work day, so that you start your day with your pretty desktop image. #itsthellittlethings).

I also screen on videos often for Canva trainings and tutorials, and like the right-hand side uncluttered, so that I can make the screen view smaller on my IMac.

Since my basic layout works so well and because the previous Desktop calendar templates have been so popular with my Canva Community Members, I wanted to gift you with my simple template so that you could plug in your own preferences. 

Do you like to have a calendar or a monthly mantra that you like to add? Do you prefer it on the right or the left.  I'd LOVE to hear your preferences in the comments below and I'd love to hear how this template is working out for you. 

Watch the short video below on how I recommend you you use it, then access your template in the free Canva Resource Library.

Happy September!
