Project 365, Stars, Day #213 (1308)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #213 (1308).



A very quick star tonight because I just finished working in the bedroom at 11pm.  We got the wall primed and painted and the shiplap wall pickled with white paint.  The pickling took a lot longer than I thought but it looks great.

That's all for me, I am super tired and sore from the full day of work.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #212 (1307)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #212 (1307).



The same design style again but the pattern a little more simple.  I like the composition of it and it came out cool.

All the parts to the bedroom are done and all that's left, is to paint.  I am going to pickle the shiplap myself and if I have time tomorrow, I might help out with the walls as well. 

That's all for me.  Movie time with the family now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #211 (1306)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #211 (1306).




More of the same for my star.  I like these so I will keep playing with them.  The bedroom is coming along and I am excited to see the shiplap wall almost done.  I'm thinking I might just want to white wash it but I might go to a straight white paint as well.  It depends on how it looks and I will play with it as I go.

That's all for now.  Watching carpool karaoke with James Corden, with Chris and Molly and they are the best.  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #210 (1305)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #210 (1305).



A similar style tonight for my star.  I started by drawing the swirls first for this one and then added the star.  Usually it's the other way around and I start with the star.  I love all the movement in this one as well.

The hall bath is done, well the only thing missing are two hanging pendant lights, which didn't come in yet.  Everything else is done and it looks awesome.  Everything came together so nice and I like all the combinations.  It's a little hard to get good pictures, because it is narrow, but these aren't to bad.  I think I will try some at a different time of day as well and see if they come out a little better.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #209 (1304)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star day for #209.



I like all the angles and lines in tonight's star.  A lot going on and I like all the movement.  The master floor is all in and just needs grout now.  I hope they will start the texturing of the walls tomorrow as well and then we will be moving along.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #208 (1303)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #208 (1303).



Simple stars tonight with just the outlines.  I didn't sleep well on the couch, so I was up early this morning.  I decided to do a little baking before it got to hot in the house.  A couple of recipes from Angela Liddon, one from her cookbook 'Oh She Glows' and one from her app.  These are both a first time make for me, so I will let you know how they are received.  I did try the breakfast cookies this morning and they were yummy.  I spread a little almond butter on them, as suggested, and thought they were good.  I might play with the recipe a little because they have bananas and Molly doesn't like them, so I may find something else to add, so Mols can enjoy them as well. 

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #207 (1302)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #207 (1302).



A simple design, just clean lines for my star.  The bedroom was started today, so the rest of the house is full of all of our bedroom furniture.  It is a little cluttered but hopefully the bedroom won't take to long.  The bathroom still probably has two days before is done,  and it will be nice when one room is done. 

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #206 (1301)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my star for day #206 (1301).




We had a little family time at the beach today.  It was about an hour and a half, just about right for us, when we haven't been there in a while.  It was a very hot day here and the breeze coming off the ocean felt nice.  I decided to do my star at the beach.  It's always fun to draw in the sand and I decided on an outline and then a blocked out image.  They look nice and simple but I still took some time, getting them just right. 

It seemed fitting that my photo would be of my time there.  Some fun pics with a bit of my feet thrown in.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #205 (1300)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my star for day #205 (1300).



A nice star with an old design style.  I like these ones a lot as well and I like creating the lines with space.  A simple photo showing the color swatch choices for the master bedroom.  I did the soft yellows yesterday but we didn't like them as much so Chris and I went and got 5 more colors today.  Now we just need to agree and pick a new color.  That part can be a challenge sometimes, hopefully it will go well.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #204 (1299)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #204.



I started my star a little early, like 4pm, thinking if I started early I could get a nice one done.  I sat down to do it and nothing came to me.  I sketched a little and kept erasing, nothing seemed to work for me.  So this is what I ended up with, a star and a moon idea.  It's not to bad for what else I came up with and it works for me.

The cabinets are in and the countertop guy came as well, to cut the sink opening and then install the sink.  I was a little nervous about the color but I am happy with how it is all coming together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #203 (1298)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #203 (1298).



Simple star tonight with some of my favorite details, lines and dots.  Here is the progress of the bathroom as of today.  The grout really finished all the tile off and it looks stunning.  I'm hoping it all comes together nicely when the cabinet and fixtures get in there.  It's so hard to tell sometimes when are just trying to match small samples.  We shall see soon.

That will be all for now.  Enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #202 (1297)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #202 (1297).



My star is pretty simple but it was just the way I was feeling tonight, so I thought I would try something different.  Let me know if you can see how I was feeling.  It's just a fun one.

Today I was at the dentist for three hours.  I needed to get a crown repaired.  One third of it off broke four days ago, so I was glad to get it done.  It was a long process but I got a nice little break while the tooth was being made.  It's all done now and I am glad about that.  I have to say it was a calm experience and it went by pretty quick, so yeah!

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #201 (1296)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #201 (1296).



I decided on doing the same image as yesterday but drawing it with my original idea.  I like the way it turned out and it's cool to put the two side by side and see the difference.  Tonight's is my favorite.

The tile walls is up.  Still a bit more work to be done but it's coming along.  There were two dye lots in the tile I got. Unfortunately I ordered it two years ago and never noticed, so some creative work had to be done.  The dark ones are the strip in the shower and around the window.  You can see one piece on the wall, but that will be behind the mirror, so you actually won't see it.  I know I keep saying it but I am looking forward to the final room.

That will be all for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #200 (1295)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #200 (1295).



I intended to ink this star in like last nights, with individual segments.  When I started to ink it in, I went on automatic and inked in the entire outline.  I remembered after the third point but by that time it was to late to change, so a straight forward inking.  Maybe tomorrow I will work with the same design and do the segments like I planned.

Mols was looking for music this morning and decided to check the Sounds of the Season channel.  Well she was so excited to find Christmas in July on!  It is her favorite music and she can't wait in the fall for it to start.  So she danced around for a bit, enjoying her new find.  So cute and funny! 

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #199 (1294)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #199 (1294).



A little different star I think than usual.  I'm pretty happy with it.  My photo is not exciting but this was my day.  Trying to take it easy and hopefully get better soon.  I do have to say that there always seems to be things I want to watch on tv, when I don't have the time to watch them.  Today, I had all the time and nothing to watch.  Molly just said you could put in a movie or go on Netflix.  I have to say I don't think of Netflix because I rarely go on it.  The movie thing is true but I was looking for something I haven't seen before.  Well that was my exciting day and now it's time for dinner.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #198 (1293)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #198 (1293).



I started my star at 8am in the doctor's office this morning.  I just finished it this evening, sitting outside.  Really simple because I just don't feel good.  This cold is crazy and the cough really stinks.  The photo is my view from where I was sitting outside.  I zoomed in on the sun so I could get the silhouette image of the trees and plants.  I think it is pretty cool and like the pink and blue aura's it created within the camera.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #197 (1292)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #197 (1292).



A star with a similar idea to yesterday but I wanted to keep it with just the single line.  A nice photo of the border going up.  Only one worker today and I thought a little more would be done but they are taking their time making sure to do a good job and that is what's important.

Still not feeling well.  Actually feverish again right now.  I had to be home for the contractors but tomorrow I think I will go to the Doctor.  I also have to go the dentist now because while eating dinner one of my caps split and I bit down hard on it (ouch).  Well half of it is gone now, so that's always fun.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #196 (1291)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #196 (1291).



I started this one this afternoon and spent a little time on it.  It looks nice and simple and I love it.  

I felt last night that I was coming down with something and sure enough I am sick.  It took a while for me to get it and I am surprised based on the time.  It was a very long day of trying to just make it through.  Hannah's phone is completely dead and I helped with Apple, to figure out a solution, it's just over a year old, so she is a little frustrated.  I had already bought the groceries for chicken tacos tonight, so I also made all the fixings and dinner.  After, I knew I didn't have a photo, so I thought this would be a nice one, my view to the dining room.  Lots of stuff, but no big deal and totally worth it.

That will be all for me.  I need to get to bed early.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #195 (1290)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #195 (1290).



I had an idea of what I wanted to do for tonight but it didn't come out quite like I was picturing.  The stars are very subtle and I wanted to make sure I didn't outline them, like I tend to do every night.  It's pretty simple and I think it could use a few more details but I wasn't quite sure what to add.

The progress on the bathroom so far.  The border detail should go up tomorrow and then it will really start to come together.

That's all for me.  I just started exercising again this week after being back from vacation and I am sore.  Chris and I also started to train for a half marathon today and I can honestly say that I don't like to run.  I am thinking I should have passed on entering.  I get excited about competing but I forget that running is just not enjoyable for me.  I will see how things go and how I progress in the training.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #194 (1289)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #194 (1289).



A little different star shape for tonight.  I wanted the focus to be the wave and the lines.  Perhaps the lines would be beads on a piece of fabric some day.  I wanted the stars to be little accents, like showing up in the night sky.

The power was turned off in the house for a few hours, due to some electrical work.  That meant no wi-fi or tv.  Mols was wondering what to do, and wanted to do something fun with me.  We had a great time playing some games and laughing a lot.  I think I need to turn the power off for a couple hours everyday, it's a nice way to connect and get everyone out of their rooms.   A great day.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #193 (1288)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #193 (1288).



It was 9:30 tonight and I was thinking of getting to bed early and then I remembered that I didn't do my star yet, oops.  So just a nice quick one tonight.   Another progress pic of the bathroom.  The tub area is all ready for tile tomorrow.  We went over the detail of how things will be laid out and the border design within.  It's coming along nicely.

That's all for me, I'm still trying to get to bed early (for me).  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #192 (1287)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #192 (1287).



A fun illustration tonight, with the stars just small details.  I really like this one with the wave design and all the little accents.

Dinner tonight was great.  A balsamic marinated portabella mushroom cap, seared tuna, salt potatoes and a green salad.  So yummy and the salt potatoes are everyone's favorites.  Salt Potatoes are a Syracuse NY specialty, and the summers always included lots of these delicious little gems.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #191 (1286)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #191 (1286).



I didn't start my star until about 10pm tonight, so I was a little tired by then.  I like the detail in the swipe design and it's fun to try different types of details.

The floor is almost done, and is coming along nicely.  There was a little mix up with the tile and he thought there were two colors supposed to go in, but it all got straightened out and is looking good.  I spent most of the day looking for pendant lights.  Most of the time was online but Chris and I did go to a few stores and looked around.  That was about two hours worth and I spent at least double that online.  I know what I would like, it's just finding the right light in the right size to fit the space.  I need to decide and finalize soon because they will be wiring next week.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #190 (1285)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #190 (1285).



I needed a break from the construction noise, so I went outside this afternoon to work on my star.  You can tell I spent an hour or so on this one.  I had the stars be little details and worked around them with the pattern.  I like this one, it's different and I need to spend more time like this when I can.

The tub went in today.  It is a nice deep tub and I am excited to be able to use it when it's done.  The old tub was a low one, so I never used it because there wouldn't be enough water to soak in.  I am excited for this project and look forward to it being finished.

That will be all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #189 (1284)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #189 (1284).



Simple stars seem to be my theme lately.  Lots going on around here, so they work for me.  I got home from checking out things for the new bath and Molly pointed out this little friend on the window in the dining room.  It is so beautiful and I love the color of it, my favorite lately.  Molly carefully caught it in a cup and freed it outside, and off it flew.  A very nice surprise, and pretty cool to have beautiful nature in the house the last two days.

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

Take care,
Kelly
