Project 365, Stars, Day #182 (1277)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #182 (1277).


Simple sketchy line design tonight.


We traveled back home today.  It was a long day and it's great to be home.  It feels weird to me to wake up in Florida and be going to bed in California.  I'm not sure why, I still find it a bit odd.  I am pretty much on East Coast time still when it comes to doing my post.  Lately, I have just been getting them done under the wire.  I am the last one up.  Three out of the five of us are sick, so it was rough travels for them.  I am doing my best to hold it off and hopefully I can continue to do so.  Well I guess that's all for now, I suppose I should get to bed soon too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #181 (1276)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #181 (1276).


We are taking an afternoon break so I had a little more time to work on my star today.  A little bit more of the same style.  These are just fun to do.


Magic Kingdom is our last park.  We had 10am Fastpass plans so we started relatively early.  Tonight there is extra magic hours until 1am, so we wanted to try and do a little of that.  In order for us to do that, we definitely needed a little break.  Here are some fun pics of all of us on the bus ride back.  We also need to pack a little because the bus is picking us up at 10am tomorrow.  If we have a late night like we plan, it will be a little difficult to get up early and pack, so I am hoping to get some done this afternoon.

I believe that's all for now.  I should start that packing like I was talking about, however a nap sounds much better.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #180 (1275)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #180 (1275).


Really quick late night sketch.  My very rough interpretation of a castle.  That's all I have for you on that.  A  beautiful evening in Epcot with extra late night magic hours.


Very tired, so I'm off to bed.  It's our last day in the parks tomorrow and it will be another late night, so I need to get some rest.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #179 (1274)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #179 (1274).


A similar design to yesterday's, that I did tonight when I got home.  You know by now that these are some of my favorite styles, with the double lines to create the outline of the images.


Today was our last day in Hollywood Studios.  We had a very nice day and I got some more photos of   all the cool buildings and landscapes.  Those are some of my favorite pictures to take.  We all left at different times tonight because some people were tired and some wanted to do more.  Mols and I were the last to get back to the room from our group.  We had one more Fastpass to do on Toy Story Mania and we stayed to do it and then headed back.  

A little bit of an early night but I have taken a bit longer to do my drawing and finish my post.  I am beat now, so that's all for me.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #178 (1273)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #178 (1273).


I finished my star this afternoon while we were all hanging out, during the thunderstorms.  It lasted for about an hour or so.  It did cool down afterwards which was nice.

We headed to Disney Springs for some shopping and dinner.  We just got home a little after 11pm.  I took my photo this morning while we were leaving The Boardwalk.  It is one of my recurring photos that I take whenever we stay there.


Well It is late and I am trying to get this posted by my computer says the wifi is working but Safari says otherwise.  I am typing this up on my iPad mini but I can't add my pics from it.  Crazy issues.  So for now I will just post my words and add my photos as soon as I can.
   (Update - I got to add my photos at 7am the next morning, the wifi was working again : ))

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #177 (1272)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #177 (1272).


We had a great long day at Animal Kingdom. Only five of us lasted until the very end. Molly and I are waiting for the bus now, it's 11:17pm.  My sister and her girls had to take a different bus.  I decided to write up my post so it was done by the time we get back.  I still need to draw my star but I did my photo collage this morning before we left.  So a great day and a long one. My star will be short and sweet for sure because I am hot and tired.

Tomorrow we need to switch rooms, so a little extra work for us.  So my photo collage is of a nice relaxing morning from our Boardwalk balcony.


I guess that will be all for me. The bus ride is almost over and I will need to do my drawing quick and then post this post.  A funny way to do a post but an easier way for me to get it done on time,   Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #176 (1271)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #176 (1271).


It was a very hot day today, 97 plus humidity.  We took a pool break in the afternoon which was nice and I drew this star quick before we went back out for the night.  We just got home from late night hours and I am just working to get my post done quick.  It was a beautiful sunset tonight and here is one of the many that I took.  This is more of a magic light pic before the warmer sunset.


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

Take care,

Hello,

A nice and easy star after our long day at Epcot.  My sister and most of her family arrived today at the house of mouse.  It's been a couple of years since we have seen them, so it's so nice they could join us here in disney.  We had a good day and here are some fun hanging out pics.


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

Project 365, Stars, Day #174 (1269)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #174 (1269).


Not sure what this one is but it is a star drawing.  A little bit of an oddball one but it's done.  These long days of sun and walking are catching up with me a bit and I am a little tired.  Loving the time here though, that's for sure.


Oma and Opa joined our trip on Monday evening.  Today we had a little fun in the Magic Kingdom.   We got on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Country Bear Jamboree and Pirates of the Caribbean.  A full late morning and afternoon followed by a delicious meal at Ohana.  

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #173 (1268)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #173 (1268).


I drew tonight's star on a cocktail napkin while Chris and I were out having a drink in the lounge at Animal Kingdom lodge.  Very simple but I am glad I got it done early because we didn't get back to the room until after 11pm.


A little photo montage of the sights at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It is such a beautiful place and seeing the animals so close is pretty cool.  The drinks and food were fantastic as well.

That's all for me, super tired tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #172 (1267)

Hello,

I hope you have had a good day so far.  Here is my star for day #172 (1267).


Some simple hanging stars today.  I was inspired by the view out our balcony.  There is a game toss right outside with a nautical theme.  They have masts set up around the hoop toss game with lights strung up and across them.  My little interpretation from the inspiration.


We had a busy day so far.  We started our morning in Hollywood Studios, getting on 3 Fastpass rides. From there we headed over to Epcot and got some lunch and then walked around the World Showcase taking in all the different countries, enjoying the scenery and the shopping in each.

My parents arrived this afternoon and we are meeting them for dinner.  It should be a great evening as well.  That's all for me.  Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #170 (1265)

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my star for day #170.


We have a long day planned with no breaks so I wanted to get my star and post done early.  A little family of stars this morning.


This is our view from the balcony at the Boardwalk.  We get to look over the boardwalk and across the lake to the Yacht and Beach Club.  It is such a pretty view.  It's a little funny looking in the panoramic but I wanted to get the entire view in.

That's all for me today.  Time to round everyone up and make sure we have all that we need.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #169 (1264)

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my star for day #169 (1264).


A simple one, with a few 'Mickey' designs in it.  I'm surprised I didn't squeeze this idea in before.  Clean and simple.


A few pics from our morning adventure in Epcot.  We headed over to Magic Kingdom for lunch and did a few things there as well.  Right now we are in the room again for a little down time before dinner.  We are eating dinner at The Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios.  The have extra magic hours there tonight, so we might be out a little later tonight.  We'll see how everyone does.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening!

Project 365, Stars, Day #168 (1263)

Hello,

I hope you're having a good day.  Here is my star for day #168 (1263).


We went back to the room for an afternoon break, so I got to work on my star.  It's nice to feel a little more relaxed when doing my star.  I got inspired to do a wood grain effect when we were on Toy Story Mania.  That is what I came up with for my drawing.  I like the way it turned out.

I haven't taken a lot of pictures so far but I had a few to choose from.  I like taking pics of everyone but I think they may be getting tired of me taking so many pictures already.  It's really not that many, I'm just not sure everyone likes them as much as me.


Some fun pics in a 'Cantina' in the new Star Wars Launch Bay.  You can watch a little movie with the making of the movies and some commentary from some of the directors.  Then there is a meet and great section.  We didn't get in line for that but had fun with some of the displays and enjoyed the storm troopers walking through.

That's all for now.  We are off for our dinner reservations.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #167 (1262).



We  had a nice day and just got home from dinner.  I drew up my star quick and I still have a few things I want to do.  I am trying to document every night what happened that day.  I go and and ask each person what they thought about the day and jot it down.  It takes a bit of time but I hope I can keep it up because I don't remember everything by the time we get home.  Here is a bit of fun we had today.


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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #166 (1261)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #166 (1261).


A simple one tonight.  Once we got started we didn't come back to the room until after dinner.  It wasn't super late but I am pretty tired from the heat and all the walking.  Seven plus miles in a day is a little more than I am used to, (by about 6 miles or so).

We are having fun and trying to take our time a bit.  We have the opportunity to do so, so it's nice to not have to run around and just be exhausted by trying to do it all.  Lots of fun pics again tonight.  Here are just a few.


Thanks for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my star for day #165 (1260).



A nice overall pattern today.  We came back to the room for an afternoon break and I sat down to get my star done early.   I like the pattern and think it's rather interesting.  I might play with filling in the designs within the pattern tomorrow.  We'll see how the time goes.


Lots of photos already taken today, so just deciding which ones to use, will be the issue for the next couple of weeks(not forgetting to take one).  Chris and I got up early, 4am our time, to got get a car and get some groceries for the two weeks.  It was an adventure and then we all headed over to Hollywood Studios, just in time to make our first Fastpass at Rock 'n Roller Coaster.  It was a nice late morning and early afternoon.  We are all trying to adjust to the heat and humidity, so we are taking a nice break back in the room and maybe in a little pool time.

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #164 (1259).



Just a quick post again tonight.  We are in Walt Disney World tonight and happy to start our vacation.  It was a long day of travel and everyone is relaxing.  It is after midnight for east coasters but I am still working my west coast time right now.

 We are very happy to be here but it is a sad day for Orlando.  I am deeply saddened by today's events and it is just scary.  I am wishing peace for all the families affected by today's tragedy.  I am also hoping for some real change in gun control.  These things are just happening to often and it is another sad day.

Thanks for stopping by.

Real simple star because I am really tired tonight.  :)  Long day and it will be an even longer one tomorrow.




Hannah got home today!  She is home just a day before we all head out on our trip.  It is so nice to have her back and in her room again, even for just a bit.

Thanks for stopping by.

Some simple circles and a star tonight.  So much going on right now that I wanted to get a quick one done tonight.


Molly asked if I could do braids for her this morning, I haven't had that opportunity in a long time.  It was nice to be able to do her hair.  She looked so cute!!

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

Project 365, Stars, Day #160 (1255)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #160 (1255).


I drew this one while waiting at the Salon today, Alyssa and I both had appointments.   I really like the ones I do in the morning.  I seem to have a more relaxed mind and can play a bit more.  I am really happy with this one and think this could be the start of a really nice larger pattern.  I just need to make the time to work on it some more.


We got our t-shirts today for our mini family reunion.  We are all so excited for our upcoming trip.  It will be fun to take group pics in these beauties!  I still have a bunch I need to get done and organized for the trip, and make sure everyone else has their 'ducks in a row'.

That will be all for me tonight.  Enjoy your evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #159 (1254).


Really simple and understated tonight.  I was considering doing more but once I was done with this star, I liked it just as is, so there it stayed, all by itself.


Today was our day to vote for the primary's.  Alyssa and I walked over this morning and exercised our right.  I hope all are taking advantage of this, when it is (or was) your time.

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

Project 365, Stars, Day #158 (1253)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #158 (1253).



A little more detail in tonight's star.  This one took a little time to ink in.  I draw the image with a single line and create the outlines of the image when I ink it in.  I have to go slow to make sure I don't cross over where I am not supposed to.  I am happy with the way this turned out, and I like the scale like affect.


I wasn't sure what my photo would be again tonight because I didn't take one by 8pm.  I walked out in the garage/studio, thinking of what I might do tonight and looked over at my shelves.  I saw my little display and it just made me smile, so I thought that's it.   I just got the wooden flower and bird garland and they just looked so pretty sitting next to my other two pieces.  I love the colors as well. They are happy colors to me.  I hope you enjoy my little inspiration piece for tonight.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly
