A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a trending color called Electric Tangerine. I think it's a beautiful spring and summer color, and I think at least a few of you agreed. 2of3 and don5318 have released WindowBlinds skins that have some of that color integrated in the design.
These are both fantastic skins so be sure to check them both out!
Thanks for taking time to create and share these skins with the WinCustomize community!

We've mentioned spring desktop wallpapers recently, but of course there's much more you can do for spring than just change your wallpaper.
One of my favorite skins to use for spring is from don5318 called Simple Green. This is a nice WindowBlinds skin that has an overall minimal design, but with beautiful touches of spring colors sprinkled in.
Not specifically designed for spring, but Reality by LightStar has a perfect color scheme that matches well with a bunch of spring and nature themed wallpapers.

We have been producing some additional triggered animated wallpapers for DeskScapes. Some of these are video based .dreams and some are more dynamic using still images that will change over the course of a day.
There are more coming out, but I wanted to highlight a few to start the week off.
See more animated wallpapers for DeskScapes here.
Day and night sky triggered animated wallpaper of a "looking up" scene in the mountains.
Triggered animated wallpaper showing 3 different beach scenes for sunrise, afternoon, and sunset.

We officially entered spring this past weekend and I hope that you are having some fantastic weather! I've been changing the wallpaper on my laptop quite often, and most of them have been images of beautiful spring landscapes. I wanted to share some of our favorites so you can also have a great looking spring desktop.

We are already at the halfway point of March, so I thought now was a suitable time to look at some of the latest new and updated skins for WindowBlinds uploaded to WinCustomize.

I didn't realize that spring officially started on March 20th of this year. For whatever reason I thought it was next month, so I guess the new season is just around the corner. Spring is always a fun time for themes as there are tons of beautiful spring wallpapers, and we have a nice variety of other skins to make a fresh, colorful desktop for the warmer weather.
I'm going to highlight some favorites and get some featured on WinCustomize, but if you have a spring inspired skin or know of some, post the links in the comments so I can add them to upcoming articles.

How often do you change your desktop wallpaper? For my main PCs I usually have a folder of wallpapers I like and have them change throughout the day. It keeps the desktop updated with a new scene often, and it makes my desktop a little less boring.
We're trying to build up a nice, curated wallpaper gallery here on WinCustomize, and the integration with DeskScapes 11 is going to make that an excellent feature to have.
So, let's highlight a few of the recent wallpaper submissions!
