Fashion Quotes for Attitude

I have been writing quotes for a few months now on this site, but I also love reading them for inspiration, or just attitude some times. As I start redesigning and sewing my work wardrobe this weekend, I got some fashion quotes that stirs a little designer attitude in me, but also just general attitude I’m going to have when I wear some of this stuff. More interesting non-work wardrobe will be coming, so I’ll need a little of that attitude for that, too.

None of my future wardrobe design is too crazy. Some would say it’s nothing crazy, for that matter. That’s fine, cause I’m not going for crazy. However, it will be different enough from the norm that it will get some questionable looks. The one day I wore my first piece, the Tranquility dress shirt, I could see that already. What I wouldn’t have given to be a mind reader then!

Anyway, here comes the fashion quotes and attitudes! See if you can spot some of these coming out in my future designs! I’ll also eventually write some of my own fashion quotes. 🙂

A Little Canadiana for My Non-Canadian Visitors – The Log Driver’s Waltz

This very “Canadian” song crossed my thoughts today so I thought I’d share it, in its very “Canadian” video. It’s primarily for the majority of visitors to my site, who happen to be from places other than Canada. However, it’s also for my Canadian visitors who may well love it just as much as I do, or who may be hearing it for the first time.

It’s about as “Canadian”, as indefinable as that maybe, as any song ever has been for me. But you can “feel” it’s “Canadian” as you listen to it. It would also certainly rank among the most “Canadian things” for me.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you’ll come back for more good stuff in the future. And definitely come to visit Canada if you’ve never experienced this great country! Enjoy!

The Log Driver’s Waltz is a Canadian folk song written by Wade Hemsworth. The version you hear in the animated National Film Board (NFB) Canadian Vignette video above is the most well known version, performed by the McGarrigle Sisters, (the late) Kate and Anna, and the Mountain City Four.

290 X-men Movies Wallpapers (1024×768 pixels)

These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.

Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.

Over 160 X-men Widescreen Wallpapers (1440×960 pixels)

The X-men wallpaper set is my favourite of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers. I have more for other monitor sizes coming by the end of November if this or the widescreen sizes below aren’t what you were looking for.

Over 200 X-men Movies Printable Picture Cards and Posters

These graphics from the X-men movie series can be taken to any typical photo printing machine and be printed out at 6″ x 4″ in size unless otherwise indicated. If you like the X-men, or for the X-men fan in your life, these make great “custom” little souvenirs. Also use your imagination to use these as prints for anything you can print a picture on, from T-shirts to cups, for unique custom gifts.

Pictures 8″ x 12″ in size, or 12″ x 18″ in size, can also be printed out as small 6″ x 4″ without having to cut off anything.

It seems to me that in some places, photo machines or stores do not print 8″ x 12″, so I have created 8″ x 10″ where I can from those larger pictures. It’s certainly hard to find 8″ x 12″ frames in some places, but 8″ x 10″ seems to be quite common, so all the more reasons to have the latter. Sure, these are just photos and what have you, but for the X-men fan in your life, a few of these would look real nice on their walls or desks! I know I’d like some!

The larger the photo size, the larger the file size will be so please be patient. 12″ x 18″ files are often larger than 8MB, while 8″ x 12″ files range anywhere from 2-4 MB. The file size is to maintain the quality of the graphics for printing nicely.

These are not official merchandise so please do not use them to make anything to sell!
