Project 365, Hearts, Day #304 (1034)

Happy Halloween,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my heart for day #304 (1034).



A Halloween greeting for tonight.  It seemed more like Halloween to me yesterday though, I think because Molly had her party and there was more going on.  It's been a nice relaxing day but we didn't have any trick or treaters tonight 😔.  We usually don't have that many but not one tonight.  It's a little sad because I really enjoy seeing all the little kids in their costumes and the excitement in their voices.  Well maybe next year.

I hope you have enjoyed your night.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #303 (1033)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #303 (1033).


A really quick post.  Molly had her birthday party today and a few of the parents (our good friends), hung out as well.  We are still chatting with a couple, so I drew this up quick.  That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #302 (1032)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #302 (1032).


Here is what I have for tonight.  I have been working all day on Molly's birthday cake.  Her party is tomorrow, so I needed to get as much done, as I could.  It is almost done, just a few more details.  I am definitely tired now though.  Standing all day, and usually in a bad posture, takes its toll on my body.  I am super sore and off to bed.  Hopefully I will get a good nights sleep.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #300 (1030)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #300 (1030).


This is what I have for you tonight.  Really not a fan of this one but it's a heart.  I don't know if the last week and half just caught up with me or what, but today I felt horrible.  Like my body hit a wall and I had no energy and was completely drained.  I pumped up the fruits and vegetables and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

So that's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #298 (1028)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #298 (1028).


Just some quick line hearts tonight.  It's been a busy day here and I just returned home from picking up Hannah at the airport.  A very long week for me with lots of running and little sleep.  So it's time to relax a bit and get ready for a new week.

Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #297 (1027)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #297 (1027).


I had a little more time today to work on my heart while Alyssa was at an appointment.  I drew the branch like structures first.  Then I needed to decide where and how I was going to add the hearts.  I was trying different ideas and I decided I liked them just sitting in the 'pockets' of the branches.  They are easy enough to see but they still seem a little more subtle than the other ideas I had.  I am pretty happy with this one and it reminds me of the old I spy books the girls used to read.  It would need a few more details to make them a little harder to find but the general idea is there.

I took a picture of Alyssa's card this morning, and here it is.


She loves the movie The Iron Giant, so I thought this would be a fun card.  I spent all my free time yesterday (in between my running) working on it.  I am really happy with the way it came out and she loved it, which is all that matters. 😊

That's all for me today.  Enjoy your Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #296 (1026)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #296 (1026).


Today is Alyssa's 21st Birthday!   This one is really hard to believe.  We were sitting here having our dessert and I just remembered I didn't do my heart yet, and it was 11:30pm.  So a quick heart tonight. I would have liked to spend a little more time on this for Alyssa, but I spent a lot of the day working on her card.  She loved it and it came out really cool.  I will take a pic of it tomorrow and show you.  She was very excited to go out and order her first official drink at a bar.  It was pretty cool and once again, hard to believe.  She had a great day and evening and I'm so glad.

That's all for me, I need to get this posted quick.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #295 (1025)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my heart for day #295 (1025).


Similar to some old styles but I doubled up the lines on this one.  That's all for me.  I had to wake up at 5am to drive Hannah to the airport this morning, for some reason I was wide awake at 4 though.  So I'm pretty tired again tonight.    That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #294 (1024)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #294 (1024).



Really simple tonight and probably similar to something else I have done, but it's ok.  I've been up since 4am and I am extremely tired.  I just couldn't fall back to sleep and Chris was up also.  He went out to the living room because he had to be up early to travel, so I decided to just get up as well instead of tossing and turning in bed.  So, it's been a long day and I definitely can't survive on so little sleep.  

That's all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #293 (1023)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #293 (1023).


A different heart for me tonight.  I was inspired by a project I am working on for Alyssa, for her 21st birthday.  It is supposed to look like metal with its rivets.  I don't think it is to bad.  There are a few lines I would like to straighten out but that's ok.  It's hard for me to draw the straight freehand lines, especially when I am trying to draw so close to another line.  

I hope you enjoy this change up.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #290 (1020)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #290 (1020).


Another easy one to figure out.  My youngest, Molly, turned 16 today!  It's really hard to believe, I know I say that every year, but it is.  We had an afternoon lunch and movie of her choice.  She wanted to go to Sonic for lunch and then we came home and watched Sixteen Candles.  She loves the 80's movies and says she was born at the wrong time. 😊  She wanted to do something a little low key and relaxing because she has had such crazy hours at school these past few weeks.  She is working again tonight because the show is open now.  I need to pick her up around 10:30pm, so another long day for her.  She is having a party at the end of the month with all her friends, so that will be a great celebration for her.  

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #289 (1019).


Still working on the same types of hearts.  I like this one but I think I could have added a few more details.  Sometimes I don't see it until I look at the photo.  I get a more distant look with the photo, as compared to when I am actually working on it.

Well that will be all for me.   Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Similar design type, just playing with different details and compositions.  I like this one again tonight.  They are just visually pleasing to me, and I hope, to you as well.

That's all for me.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #287 (1017).


A fun composition similar to last nights.  I really like this one.  I haven't done this style in a while and they really are my favorite.  I forget about it until I see them again though.  I might be playing with this style for a few days to see what I come up with.  

That's all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #286 (1016)

Hello,

I hope you good day.  Here is my heart for day #286 (1016).


I like the details on tonight's heart and the simple horizontal details breaking up the composition.  I'm pretty happy with this one.  

That's all for me.  It's still really hot here and the house is just not cooling down.  It's still 89 in the house and sleeping is not going so well.  So I am pretty tired but hopefully I will get some sleep soon 😊.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #285 (1015).


A simple heart tonight.  I am pretty tired, it's been a long day.  A couple of extra paying jobs today besides my normal routine jobs.  I also just picked up Mols from school.  They have show rehearsals all week, for the upcoming opening of the new musical, and they are at school until 10pm.  I know she enjoys doing it but they have crazy hours and I think it's a bit to much.  I'm sure she is more tired then me and I give her props because I don't know how she does it.

Well that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #284 (1014)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my heart for day #284 (1014).


I have a royal icing heart for you tonight.  I am teaching my cake class again tomorrow, so I prep all the little violet flowers tonight.  I decided since I had all the supplies out I should try something different.  I think it came out pretty good.  You can't erase with the icing, so you have to go with the flow so to speak.  I could start over but you know I don't like to do that.  It is still drying on the parchment paper and once it is dry I can lift it up to add to a cake or cupcake, a nice demonstration for the kids.

Here are all the little violets drying as well.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my heart for day #283 (1013).


A collage of some different designs for today.  I decided to work on my heart a little earlier because it is 95 here again today and there is only so much you can do before you get to hot and need to sit and take it easy.  So, I sat for a few minutes and came up with this. Not super exciting to me but a little different, so I still like it.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Friday.  Here is my heart for day #282 (1012).


Some block hearts for tonight.  That's all for me.  It is super hot here again, it was 95 today, so we are all just hot and sticky and just trying to stay cool.  

Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #281 (1011)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #281 (1011).


Just a grouping of hearts for tonight.  Simple and to the point.  I had a busy day and I am pretty tired.  I helped out at the high school today hanging/making curtains for the upcoming show.  Mols is working in this show and has already had a long couple of weeks.  It's fun to help out but 4 hours of work and I was pretty beat afterwards.  Getting older for sure and that's when I feel it.

That's all.  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #280 (1010).



(An update from yesterday.  I realized I signed it with the wrong date, not sure how I did that because I doubled checked but still forgot by the time I signed it.  Crazy.)



I wanted to do some pumpkins tonight and this is what I came up with.  My traditional sketchy pumpkins, which I really like, and some hearts incorporated in a different way.  I was thinking of other ways to include the hearts but I like this way best, and I think it came out pretty cool.

That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Some intertwining hearts for tonight.  I like it, except for my wobbly lines.  I would like them to be a little more precise, but my hand was sticking to the paper, so it was hard to get a nice straight line. 

That's all for me.  Enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my heart for day #277 (1007).


Just a quick one tonight.  I am pretty tired and didn't work on this one for that long.  It's nice to start my hearts during the day and have a little more time to finish them.  I just usually don't make the time for them until the evening, unless I am sitting at a doctors office.  Another heart complete though and that is a good feeling.

That's all for me.  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Hearts, Day #276 (1006)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #276 (1006).


These are some fun hearts tonight.  Alyssa and I were talking before her appointment today, about drawing and the Inktober illustrations she is doing this month.  She already did some very detailed illustrations and I was saying how I kind of get stuck with my hearts, thinking there is only so much you can do.  She offered suggestions of a skeleton or mummy with its heart coming out (Since I am in a Halloween mood).  I thought I would give it a try and sketched a traditional looking mummy but I didn't like the look of it or what I could do with the composition.  I went back and started with a traditional heart sketch and then filled in my mummy design.  I inked up the mummy parts.  I did sketch in some hairy edges but decided to erase my sketch lines first and see what they looked like.  I loved the way the images looked without the defined edge.  So a couple of fun mummy hearts for tonight.  I hope you enjoy these two!

Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my heart for day #275 (1005).


A simple overall pattern today.  Simple and cute for me.  I was working on some Marquee letters today for Halloween and I finished those as well.  It was a three day process to complete them, but I think they came out pretty cool.  


The details are a little hard to see, especially with the picture on my work table.  I will take another picture once I set them up, but I still need to take out the rest of my decorations.  I am looking forward to decorating, it's a lot of work, but still fun!

Ok that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Friday night!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #274 (1004).


Trying to do a few details but not really liking where I ended up.  I do like parts of it, I just think the whole design doesn't work as well together, once I inked it up.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly
