Project 365, Stars, Day #121 (1216)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday. Here is my star for day #121 (1216).


A long day shopping in LA today.  Mols and her friends, Coral, Maria, and Lucas went to look for prom dresses (well except Lucas).  We all drove with Mary, my friend, and Corals mom.  Lucas is their good buddy and it was sweet how he came along and offered his advice.  I think he was definitely done by the end of the day, so he said they need to go and have a day focused around what he likes.  I'm sure the girls would be up for that as well, they all have a great time together.  


Well that's all for me.  I am a bit tired from the day.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #120 (1215)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #120 (1215).


A really quick one tonight.  I didn't start until 10:30, so I wanted to just get one done quick.  I also just got back from pricking Mols up from school, so it's been a long day.  My photo well, I didn't take one yet, so let's see what I come up with.


This is what I came up with on short notice, not to bad.  It was a long day of paperwork and running it seemed.  Nothing special for a photo, so I think this one works.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #119 (1214)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #119 (1214).


A star that was inspired by one in my house.  Here is my photo for the night showing you my inspiration.


Chris bought me that star and hung it in our bathroom, as part of a scavenger hunt present one year.  I love it, the colors and the rustic charm of it.  I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before but I thought it would be great to have a little focus on it.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #118 (1213)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #118 (1213).


A little more detail and time in tonight's star.  It was fun to do this one but my hand stiffens up a bit when drawing something like this.


Molly and Alyssa are both learning to drive right now, so I am spending more time in the passenger seat.  They are doing better, so I can look around a little more, and enjoy the scenery.  

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #117 (1212)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #117 (1212).


A scaly star tonight.  Working all day at the desk, trying to work on budget and girls college budgets.  Not fun but needs to be done.  


That's all for me tonight, thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #116 (1211)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #116 (1211).


Similar stars to last night.  I completed them a little better tonight, starting and stopping at the same point.


A beautiful sky tonight, the start of the sunset.  It looked cool, looking through the the window and getting the frame in the picture.  I like the different perspective.  I also took some without the frame but tonight I like the frame better.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #115 (1210)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #115 (1210).



One continuous line in a random pattern.  I just started drawing with no idea of what I wanted to do, and just went with it.  


Trying to get a few everyday chore photos and Mols caught me, she decided on a little photo shoot.  Cute and fun.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #114 (1209)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #114 (1209).


A classic star tonight.  A nice Saturday finished off by hanging out and watching Star Wars and having a junk food night of sorts.  


I was trying to take pics again and Seamus would still look away and avoid all eye contact.  I had to keep talking to him to try and get him to switch positions, so I could get a few photos.  I finally got some cute ones, along with lots of ones with attitude.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #113 (1208)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #113 (1208).


Just a quick star tonight.   Chris and I had a date night, and when I got home I was a bit tired and wanted to get something done quick.


A nice photo montage of our evening.  I hope you had a nice one and thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #112 (1207)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #112 (1207).


Some spring/coil like designs make up tonight's star.  It's a little different, and I don't think I have done anything like it before, so that's nice.  

A busy day today.  Lots of different things going on.  I had to take Seamus in to the vet again because he had something on his muzzle, that I thought was his cancer coming back.  Well that thing was just an infected scratch (which came out of no where) but with in his check up, she found that his cancer is back, and in his lymph nodes.  So not to much to time left for him.  It will be hard for sure and we'll just keep an eye on him and see how he does.  Right now he is acting his same old self which is good.  So tonight there was a cocktail with dinner.  


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

Take care, 
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #111 (1206)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #111 (1206).


A simple pattern and I like it.  I would like to expand on this idea sometime and see what else I could do with it.  A few smudges again.  When I erase my pencil line, I always seem to smear the ink, and of course it bothers me.  Oh well.


I went by Mols room and heard the piano playing and popped my head in and this is what she was doing.  Pretty cool to learn things that way.  Of course she is supposed to be working on homework.  She finds many ways to take breaks, this is a good one, but sometimes that last a 'little' to long. 

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #110 (1205)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #110 (1205).


A skinny star with a composition tonight.  I kept the star simple but wanted to add a background.  I am really happy with it and glad I incorporated some other shapes tonight.  I need to start working on compositions again, because I really enjoy them. I know sometimes I am to tired to spend the time needed, but I will make a better effort.


Food again tonight.  I did have a subtle sunset picture, that I tried to use in a composition of photos but they just looked odd together.  So just my dinner again, but a delicious one.  A new recipe and it is a keeper.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #109 (1204)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #109 (1204).


Another thin star tonight, with some tiny details.  A nice delicate feeling to me.


Another food pic tonight.  I love big salads, they are some of my favorite meals.  I can honestly say I sometimes don't like making them because it is a lot of chopping and such, but it really is worth it.  Tonight's variety; mixed greens, cucumber, tomatoes, red peppers, red beets, radish, tuna, hard boiled egg, hemp seeds, and chia seeds.  Delicious.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #108 (1203)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my star for day #108 (1203).


Some nice thin stars tonight.  I really like the shape of these ones and the simple background.


A beautiful day outside today.  We decided to eat dinner outside and enjoy some nice conversation and atmosphere.  It was a delicious dinner and nice evening.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take car,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #107 (1202)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my star for day #107 (1202).



I like the border on tonight's star.  It feels familiar, so hopefully I didn't do one exactly like this before.


One of those days where I was in my own head to much, and overthinking everything.  I didn't think about a photo, so I decided on a point of view pic, from where I was working on my post.  Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #106 (1201)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #106 (1201).


A very fluid star, composed of continuous loops.  It's kind of fun to do ones like this because there is no set pattern and it's very freeing.


We went to a dance lesson tonight.  I gave Chris a gift certificate for Christmas and it is almost expired, so we needed to go.  We took a Lindy class and it was a lot of fun.  We went out for a drink afterwards and I got these pics of Chris while waiting for the drinks.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #105 (1200)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #105 (1200).


A nice thin star tonight, which reminds me of a sea star.  I also like the simple circle details.  


While I was drawing, Seamus was looking up at me, and he looked so cute.  I grabbed my phone to take some pictures of him and he immediately started to turn away.  He does that all the time and I think he knows.  He really doesn't like to get his picture taken.  Funny old man he is.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #104 (1199)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #104 (1099).


A nice bold image tonight.  That's it for my star, not much to say about it.  I was looking for faucets for the hall bath today.  I remember now that I don't enjoy this part.  I definitely have a hard time choosing these types of things, especially when you are in a store looking at so many.  I am thinking I want to change things up color wise but not sure it will look good with everything else I have picked out.  The salesman suggested bringing in my tile, so I will be doing that on my next trip and see if that goes a little better.  


I normally go for the brushed nickel look, but I am also really drawn to these bronze like faucets.  I guess I'll see how things progress.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #103 (1198)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #103 (1198).


I like tonight's star and how it transitioned from where I started.  I think it's a little different and fun, which is always nice.  


I made a cup of tea tonight and thought I would document the simplicity of the cup of tea and its tag.  I love opening a Yogi tea and seeing it's little words of wisdom.  They aren't really little, (just the tags), the words are strong and powerful.  Things that we should know and do to make our lives simpler and better.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #102 (1197)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #102 (1197).


Not a specific plan, just getting my star done tonight.  I love how the plant out front has all these blossoms on it now.  It's cool to see all the stages of this plant and I can't wait to see if they flower.


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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #101 (1196)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #101 (1196).


Simple waves and stars tonight.  Today was a day of cleaning and sorting through stuff.  It was a nice sunny day today and I went outside to read for a little bit, for a nice break.  I was moving around a bit because my back was hurting, at one point I laid down in the couch to read.  I looked up, and the sky just looked so simple and beautiful.  I thought to myself, when do you look directly straight up at the sky.  It was a nice change and a different perspective.


That's all for me.  Hope you had a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #100 (1195)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #100 (1195).


Sketchy lines to create tonight's star.  Simple but its appealing to me.


We are doing the hall bath over and started the search for cabinets.  I thought for sure that I would want to keep it light and airy with white but I was really drawn to the dark cabinet and style.  We'll see how the search goes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #99 (1194)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #99 (1194).


Simple little stars tonight.  I helped serve dinner for Molly's 'hell week', as they call it, for APA.  I made about 8 dozen cookies and a salad to bring for dinner.  The kids are always very appreciative of the dinners and that's nice to see.  I was going to take some pictures of the cookies but I totally forgot about it.  


I'm sitting on the couch doing my post and one of my beading bins is right next to me.  The top is off, so the the bottle caps just stood out to me.  I have a fun collection and they are pretty colorful, so I thought they would make a nice photo.  I think they look good and I really need to start working on some of these projects.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #98 (1193)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my star for day #98 (1193).


I seem to be at the stage where I feel like I am running out of ideas.  I always go through these little cycles, and I find them difficult, but I definitely keep trying.  I end up with some images that I'm not thrilled with, but I attempted something, so I am happy with that.


I just finished watching the season finale of America Idol.  I really enjoyed tonight's show.  It was nice how they brought so many past idol contestants back to sing together and I thought it was done nicely.  Just a few pictures from tonight's show.  

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #97 (1192)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #97 (1192).


I like the one star I did last week where the lines grew out of the star and I wanted a similar effect tonight.  I was trying to simplify it but I like the one with more detail, better.  It's not a bad attempt and I do like how it distorts the star some, but I think a few more details would have been nice.


Here is one of Alyssa's oil paintings.  This is the first landscape she has done, the others have been still life's.  She doesn't care for the medium that much and doesn't think that she is that good, but of course I disagree.  I think this is an awesome first landscape and with more practice I can't even imagine what she could do.  I don't think she will pursue this medium pass this class but you never know.  Her talent is great and with time anything is possible.

That's all for tonight.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly
