Project 365, Stars, Day #151 (1246)

Hello,

Today is Memorial Day in the US and I want to thank all of those who served in our armed forces and gave their lives for all of us.  I thank those who serve and served and the families who support them.  It is an amazing thing that you do.  Thank you.

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #151 (1246).


Sitting out back and enjoying a little down time with Chris,  I decided to do my star around the fire pit.   A simple one, made up of the stones surrounding the pit.  Nice, easy and fun.



My photos for the day are of the same time relaxing out back.  Chris was getting a quick text sent out and then we just chilled and had a drink and some nice conversation.  A nice way to start to wind down the day. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you had a great day! 

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #150 (1245)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #150 (1245).


Really simple, finding it hard to be creative right now.  Even though it's simple I really love these double line images.  It just makes a huge difference from where it starts.


It turned out to be a beautiful day in the afternoon.  It was May grays all morning long, but around 1pm the sun snuck through and broke up the clouds.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good Saturday. Here is my star for day #149 (1244).


Double line simple image tonight, a nice cloud with a star.  It's understated and I really like it.


A quiet day today.  Everyone is handling the loss of Seamus a little different.  It's tough but we will get through it.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #148 (1243)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #148 (1243).


It was a very long day, filled with emotions, so the design of my star.  A nice high point was that Molly passed her drivers test today!  Woo Hoo!  I don't know how she did it today, but she did.  The reason being, is that we had to put Seamus to sleep tonight.  It was extremely hard on all of us and we are all a mess.


Nothing else to say tonight, except, he will be missed!  We love you 'little man'!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #147 (1242)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #147 (1242).


A nice quick star again tonight.  It was a busy day and an emotional one.  We are putting Seamus down tomorrow, so the house is full of tears and sadness.  It is especially hard for Hannah who is in Utah.  We are doing are best to support her, we know it's hard.  So, lots going on here.  There was one bright spot today and that was Alyssa passed her drivers test!  Woo Hoo!  She was a little nervous and anxious but she did it and did great!


We had a little celebratory lunch, which was nice.  She still doesn't care to drive much but at least she has her license when she does need it (or want it).

That's about all for now, this post has taken a long time to get up.  I got a new phone today to give Alyssa my old one.  (She just wanted that upgrade)  I transferred my old phone items to the new one and some apps didn't go.  The blogger app was one of them.  Apparently they don't support the app any more and took it down.  There are some third party apps but they all get horrible reviews.  I spent the last hour trying to figure it out and just went to the computer to do it.  That works when I am home but a lot of the times I like to get things done on the go, or usually in a different room of my house.  I need to spend more time tomorrow searching, because we go on vacation soon and I need to be able to do it all from my phone.  If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by!  

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #146 (1241)

Hello,

I hope you had a god day. Here is my star for day #146 (1241).


Some different abstract stars tonight, that I think are pretty fun. 


I did some cleaning and organizing today in the kitchen. The counters have been a cluttered mess for a couple months and it's been on my list to tackle the mess.  On one side, I have a bunch of upcycled jars that hold nuts and seeds and snacks. They always seem to end up all over the counter, so I really wanted to change that. I found a cool tray at Michael's and at 60% off, which was great.  They all fit so nicely and I really like the look. 

That's all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your night. 

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #144 (1239)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #144 (1239).


Simple design with my favorite style.  I like this style so much, there will probably more of them. 


Working on getting things organized and trying to reduce clutter.  The idea is to have things in their place, so it's easier to find them and put them away.  My recipes were one of the things I was working in today.  It might take a couple days but it will be worth it.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my star for day #143 (1238).


Going back to some of my favorite technique/styling. I love the double line and outline look. 


Some more pics of little man.  He is not doing well, so sneaking pictures whenever I can. 

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #142 (1237)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #142 (1237).


We got back from the banquet around 9:30 pm and I have been slowly working on my drawing and post. I am just really tired and working really slow. Not a bad drawing though. 


It was a nice evening. You can see the table skirts I worked on but I didn't get a chance to set them up.  I ended up working on all the ceiling decorations. We spent 4 1/2 hours setting up the rooms. It was a Wizard of Oz theme and it came out great.  Mols was nominated for set design, very cool!

Thats all for me, I'm super tired.  Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my star for day #141 (1236).


I got my drawing done early because I knew I would be busy tonight.  It's Molly's junior/senior prom, so there was lots going on. One of my favorite things is taking the photos of all the kids dressed up.  While I am waiting to pick her back up I am doing my post and working on a table drape for her APA banquet tomorrow. 


That's all for me.  Almost time to head out to pick her back up, it is a 30 minute drive. Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a great day.  Here is my star for day #140 (1235).


Nice and different tonight. It started to get late and I was tired so I looked around and saw the embroiderey floss and decided to give it a go.  Kind of fun. 


I had lunch with two high school friends today and it was the best!  So great to see them after 20 plus years.  We are actually on our 30th year, we just couldn't remember if we saw each other at the earlier reunions.  Anyways, it was a great afternoon, filled with laughter and the feeling like no time had gone by.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here's my star for day #139 (1234).


A quick one tonight, working on lots of things and it was getting late, so I wanted to make sure I got my star done. 


FaceTimeing with Hannah tonight.  I loved the little square with Mols and my head.  Of course we threw in some funny faces as well.  Hannah might not like the close up of her but I think it's cute. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care, Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #138 (1233)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #138 (1233).


A trio of simple stars tonight.  I like the little details on the end of each point.  

Chris and I started "Awaken your Freedom" a 12 week program today.  I am looking forward to the program, to learn and grow.  The end result is to have a better mindset and learn how to live in free nature.  I will post every now and then to let you know my progress.  


 Molly has an odd schedule this week with testing, so her hours are all different.  I looked at the schedule, but I still read it wrong because I was there 20 minutes early.  It figures for me, I seem to be doing that a lot lately.  I decided to take some photos of my view from the car while waiting. I really like the photos, especially the side view mirror one.  A regular part of my day and a nice documentation of it.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #137 (1232)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #137 (1232).


A little different tonight but not much else to say about it.  A busy day today but I got a nice break.  My friend Agnieska invited myself and our friend Mary over for lunch.  We haven't sat down for lunch in probably a year.  We might see eachother in passing, and say a quick hello, but not much other than that.  It was great to get together and have that time of laughter, conversation and great food.  She made us a great salad with grilled chicken.  We also hadn't been to her new house yet, so we got to see that and enjoy a nice tour.  She did an amazing job renovating the house.  It could be in a magazine for sure.  I should have take on pictures of us and the day but I only took one.  Mary took one first of her half bath and then I decided to take one too.  I'll have to remember to take more pictures next time, of us and the wonderful time we had.


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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #136 (1231)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here my star for day is #136 (1231).


A pretty simple star tonight, but it stands out to me as a little different, and I really like it.  


An odd photo but it was a part of my day.  I know there is a rat problem in the neighborhood and we do have some bait boxes around to help control it.  I still feel bad when I see one that looks sick because it is a little animal, and I don't know, I feel bad for it.  However, I do not want a family and all its relatives living in my yard and causing problems.  The dilemmas of it all.  

That's all for me and my crazy day.  Thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #135 (1230).


Just a quick one tonight. It's getting late and I am pretty tired.  We relaxed tonight and watched a couple of movies.  Monsters University was the first one and Aladdin was the second.  We are still finishing Aladdin, so I am going to finish up this post.


A great classic, with a great soundtrack.  I love the animated musicals.

Thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Stars, Day #134 (1229)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Friday.  Here is my star for day #134 (1229).


I was going to show my photo for the day first, but with the way I always start my posts, I decided to keep it the same and show my star first.  I started the day with my photo though and then decided to do the star after I took the photos.  When I dropped Alyssa off at school this morning, I decided to stop and take a few pictures of the Jacaranda buds on the ground.  I have been thinking about doing it for days, and today I finally stopped.  The purple blotches of color all over the ground are just so pretty.  After I took the photos, I decided why not put a little star composition together.  I love the way the star turned out.  I'm not sure my photos do what I saw justice, but you get the idea.  


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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #133 (1228)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #133 (1228).


A different composition tonight and I like this one.  I think I need to play more with the bold details, because I am drawn to them lately, and it would be nice to see what else I can do.  

I took some pics of dinner, while I was in the process of cooking and thought those would be my photos for the night.  However, Seamus went outside and was doing his spinners in the grass and looked so cute, I had to grab my camera and take some pics.


I used a filter on this one tonight and chose the instant camera filter.  Isn't he a cutie pie?!

That's all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #132 (1227)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #132 (1227).


Nothing to exciting but I am continuing on my journey.  Some days are harder than others but staying determined is my goal.  A simple star behind some ribbons for tonight.

Alyssa has a 3D art project she is working on right now that is wire bending.  It is a self portrait project and I just love how it is turning out.  


Pretty cool don't you think.  I really like these types of projects, so much going on with them. Well that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #131 (1226)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #131 (1226).


I had a rough day and everything just seemed to weigh on me.  I found it hard to sit down and do my star, I was honestly thinking of not doing it anymore.  That would be a huge decision though and I carried on.  I wasn't sure what I would do, but I am happy with the outcome.  I like the bold star with the three little cutout stars.  It's nice to see the bold inking again.

I didn't have a photo yet, so I decided on a few more of Seamus.  He wasn't happy about it, but I'm going to take them while I can.


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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #130 (1225)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #130 (1225).


A mountain range with a couple of stars.  Not exactly what I was thinking but I had a hard time figuring out where I wanted this one to go.  So, that's all I had for my star. 


I spent a lot of the day working on our two trips to Walt Disney World.  I am finalizing dinner plans and trying to make sure we get to do everything we think we would like to do.  Our first trip is a small family reunion, where my parents, and my sister and her family will be joining us.  It can be a little challenging trying to make reservations for 11 but so far it is is going well.  I am really excited to see everyone and excited for the trip.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #129 (1224)

Hello,

Happy Mother's Day!  I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my star for day #129 (1224).


A simple message and star tonight.  Although it is simple, I can't tell you how many times I erased things and started over.  I was writing in cursive the first few attempts and then went to print.  Even then, I tried a few different options. 

I wish all the moms out there and those who are care givers and look after others, the very best today.  Thank you for all that you do!!

Mols was working in the kitchen for most of the day on my dessert.  I appreciate her effort and time on making something special for me!


Dinner and dessert were great!!  We watched a movie to finish off the evening and FaceTimed with Hannah for a bit.  A great day.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #128 (1223).


Simple and it feels familiar as well. Not sure if I've done one like this before.   That's what I have for today though.


Following Chris around for a few pics.  He is being his usual goofy self.  

That's all for now.  Wishing all the Moms a very Happy Mother's Day tomorrow!  May you all get to enjoy your day!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
