Beautiful Backgrounds and Patterns

Background LabsIn my search for a nice background to use for a twitter site I came across this really cool website, BackgroundLabs.com. It features a wide variety of seamless backgrounds, patterns, textures and graphics for use in customizing your Myspace pages, twitter, blogs, and websites.

Some folks are really surprised by the fact that professional developers use third-party designs, so me pointing my clients to a different website to sort through backgrounds might seem a little wierd, but I am totally a practical developer/designer. Why re-invent the wheel and charge your clients for it, when you can find such nice resources such as these. The retro styles are really my favorite.
