Project 365, Stars, Day #244 (1339)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #244 (1339).



A little reverse star tonight, highlighting the negative space.  All the little crosshatch took a bit to do but I like the result.

Molly's first day of her senior year was today.  Seriously, how is that possible.  It's amazing how all of my girls have grown.  I am excited for Molly and all she can do in her senior year!

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #243 (1338)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #243 (1338).



A little cross hatch star tonight.  Not much else to say about that.  On one of many excursions today, I stopped to admire our flowers out front.  They look pretty plane most of the time, and get really thin during the winter, but when they bloom in the summer, they are just beautiful!  We have them in three different spots throughout the front yard, and they add such a nice pop of color to the rest of our desert landscape. 

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #242 (1337)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day today.  Here is my star for day #242 (1337).



Simple star and I like it.  I like them a lot better when I look at the photo of them as well.  Seeing them at a distance and in a photo just gives me a different perspective and it's nice to have.  I did some baking this morning first thing after I got up.  I am motivated in the morning to bake, not sure why but I get up and go.  I made breakfast cookies which I have shared a picture before and these muffins are new.  Pumpkin gingerbread muffins, a new recipe from the Oh She Glows app.  They are moist and delicious and the girls gave them a thumbs up as well.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #241 (1336)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #241 (1336).




A real simple starfish design for tonight and delicate looking to me.  I finished these cards yesterday but didn't take a photo of them until tonight, because the spiders were just to cool yesterday.  It really has been a long time since I have stamped and played in my studio.  I was not feeling it at first.  I had a few different attempts none of which I liked.  These ones came along after time and I am happy with them.  The girls liked them as well, so that's always a nice boost.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #240 (1335)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #240 (1335).



Five little stars, for our family.  A few small dot details are next to the stars but they are a little hard to see in the picture.  I had a photo of a card I made today but I decided to go with this one instead.  The spiders come out around dusk and start making their webs.  I forgot to close the shed and went out to close it but almost walked through a web.  This web was in the middle of the walk way.  The anchors for the web are at least six feet apart.  I tried to go around the other way and almost ran into this guy.  It is about the size of a quarter.  We shown a light on it to try and get a picture of it and then ended up with an awesome shadow shot.  The girls were freaking out a bit and I have to admit I got a little antsy only because that big one was right above my head when I almost walked through it.  I will try and get some pics in the morning and see what they look like.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #239 (1334)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #239 (1334).




A simple double line image again tonight.  Today was a day of cleaning and getting things put back together in the bedrooms, that were all rearranged.  Still lots to do but it's moving along.  This chalkboard is the cover of a little basket that sits on the counter.  It usually has a message or something and close to the holiday's a countdown.  Molly is all ready for fall and winter so she started the countdown today.  Pretty cute and fun.  I guess I better get going and getting ready for the holidays.  : )

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #238 (1333)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #238 (1333).



Back to my double line images, always a favorite.  I know the design of this one is similar to others but they are what I enjoy.  My photo is just a fun one.  I just love this license plate.  I didn't get to see who was driving though, they were in a faster lane.  It's just fun and how awesome to have a cool plate like that.

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

Project 365, Stars, Day #237 (1332)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day#237 (1332).




Today is Chris' and mine 25th Anniversary.  It really is hard to believe in a way.  It doesn't seem that long and then again it does.  I did a little photo montage on Facebook today and these are some of the photos I posted.  We look so young and that part is crazy.  The styles are also comical to me but that's they way they were.  I made my dress and all the bridesmaids dresses.  I was going for the country/old fashioned theme.  It was a beautiful day!

Chris just got home from work and I am finishing my post.  We are all going out to dinner tonight when Alyssa gets back from her class.  That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #236 (1331)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day#236 (1331).



A shattered star sort of look tonight.  I like this one and it's simplicity. 

A lot of running around today,  cleaning up, unpacking and laundry.  I realized at the end of the day that I hadn't taken a photo yet.  Hannah was doing her nails so I snapped a pic of her.  She was kind enough to give me one of her 'poses'.  She is a jokester and I love it.

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

A color block star design for tonight.  I drew and inked this one up on the plane.  It was nice to have something to do and it kept me occupied.  A very cool picture of our pier, on our turn around just before we landed. 

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #234 (1329).





I got my star done nice and early this morning which was nice.  I like this one and the bold color block design as well.

Hottest and sunniest day so far, and just beautiful.  It was a very busy day and lots going on at the beach.  The water was really clear today and I just love relaxing and floating around in it.   We head back home tomorrow, but maybe I can get one more dip in the ocean before we leave.

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

Take care,

A great day of relaxing and reconnecting. A simple star for the evening but I like the double lines.  Such a nice day and just thankful for where I am.

Thanks for stopping be and have a great evening!

 Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #232 (1327).







A fun and different star tonight. I like the positive and negative space going on.

We flew to Cabo today for a little Mom and Dad time and to work on our 90 day intention.  So far a wet and rainy day.  Hopefully the weather will be a little nicer tomorrow.

That's all for me.  I am working on just trying to get things posted.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Stars, Day #231 (1326)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #231 (1326).



I'm getting my post done nice and early for me.  A simple star with some bolder lines tonight.  I worked all day on taking beds apart, moving furniture around and putting a bed back together.  I also had to move a lot of items in our storage unit out back, to get to the futon frame Hannah is using for her bed base.  It was a lot of work and my body is hurting.  : )  I am glad to get it all done and now things can move on and the girls can start organizing their rooms and get them just how they want. 

That's all for now.  I need to start dinner and Chris and I have to pack for our little weekend getaway. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #230 (1325)

Hello, 

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #230 (1325).



Another long day of painting, so just a basic star tonight.  It seems to be taking a lot longer than I planned to get Hannah's room done.  She wants white walls, and the white is not covering well over the grey, even after two coats (three on the edges).  She says it's fine for her and is ready to put things back now.  I want things back as well but when I do a job, I want it to be the best I can do, and I am not feeling that way with it now.  I want to be done as well and want the house to get back to some order, so I am saying it is good for now too.  Tomorrow we can start the moving in of furniture.

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

Take care,
Kelly

A nice star for the night.  I did some more painting today, this time in Hannah's room.  Hopefully we will be done soon and she can put her room back together and get all organized.  She is looking forward to it getting done. 

That's all for me, I was up early this morning and I am pretty tired now after my day.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #228 (1323).



Just a bunch of thin stars for the night.  I'm finding the ideas are hard to come by again.  I have had a bit of a stomach bug lately and the days have seemed long, so the inspiration is not there.  I met Chris for a walk today and when we came home we saw this.  It was hilarious.  Hannah set Chris' photo up on his chair, with his hat and just a little book in front, for reading.  All the girls were sitting on the couch waiting to see his expression.  Very funny.

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

Project 365, Stars, Day #227 (1322)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #227 (1322).



A nice star with a spotted chevron pattern.  Simple and cute.  I spent a good amount of time making a shelf for the bedroom to support the tv.  I had the vision in my mind and wanted it rustic, to go with our new furniture.  The old pallet we had was perfect.  It took a while to take it apart and sand it all down and get it just right.  When we brought it into the room and put in on the dresser, I saw a little worm on the dresser.  I picked it back up and saw another one coming out of one of the holes.  Well it went back outside, I don't want any extra 'little visitors' in my house.  I was kind of sad because it would have made such a cool accent.  I went to Home Depot and got some supplies to start on round two.  That is a work in progress right now.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

It was a busy day with lots getting done, which is nice.  A nice simple star for my drawing.  Some beautiful beads for my photo tonight.  I went to a bead show and spent a couple hours shopping.  All of these are from one store and the selection was amazing.  I got some beads to work on some designs I have had in mind for quite some time now.

That will be all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your night.

A little different star for tonight.  I got it done before we headed off to the movies.  They are showing old classic Disney movies in the theaters again.  They are usually only for one day and tonight was Treasure Planet.  It ended up being a girls night, Chris was feeling a little run down, so he stayed home.  We all enjoyed the movie and our little night out.

That's all for me.  Hope you have a great weekend!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #224 (1319).



More of the same for my star tonight.  I threw my hair up to do something else and then when I looked at it later, it looked pretty good, better than when I actually try to do my hair.  I tried to take some selfies in the mirror.  I am not very good at taking selfies and I took quite a few and deleted a bunch as well.  Normally I am to critical of myself but tonight I let that go and I think these are pretty good.  So some fun pics for the night.

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #223 (1318).



Another similar design type with the star set in the background.  I like breaking up the stars with these all over patterns. 

I was in the bedroom and looked out the window and saw the final sun setting and the cool silhouette of the house and palm trees.  I thought what a great picture that would be.  I grabbed my phone and took some pictures.  This was my favorite of all of the different views.

That's all for now.  I am off to watch a little more of the Olympics.  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #222 (1317).



A similar design to last night but with some nice fluid lines.   A simple dinner picture tonight.  I just snapped a couple pictures and wasn't thinking I would use them but I decided to after all.  A delicious taco salad for me.  Cabbage base, corn and black bean salad, sauteed chicken, pickled red onions, cilantro/lime sauce and salsa.  The only thing I didn't make is the salsa, everything else is made from scratch.  It was delicious and one of my favorite things, salad.

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #221 (1316).



I think I've done something similar to this in the past but I would have to go back to look.  I like the design of this one and it makes me happy.

More organization going on today.  Trying to put all the bathroom items back into the new vanity.  There is more space and a little different, so I was working on getting it all in and in a nice way where you can see it all and get to it easily.  It's looking good and hopefully it will work for the girls as well and they can help maintain it.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #220 (1315).



A clean line star tonight, with some simple swirls.  The simplicity of this one makes it striking for me.  I just like it.   : )

More pictures of the drawer organization.  It is really amazing how everything is fitting in such small spaces.  I love how the drawers look when you open them up.  I think it will be pretty easy to maintain now that all the folding is done.  We'll see how it goes and how Chris does taking things out of the drawers.

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

Take care,
Kelly
