Create a Desktop Calendar/Wallpaper using a Pattern

Each month I get hundreds of visitors to my website to download my monthly calendar.  It’s free and it’s a great way of building a following and getting your work seen.  Some of my calendar designs have gone on to be licensed on products such as gift wrap and greeting cards.
