Project 365, Stars, Day #274 (1369)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Friday!  Here is my star for day #274 (1369).



A quick post tonight.  I did my star this afternoon before Chris and I went out for our date night.  Tonight we went to Downtown Disney and had dinner at Napa Rose.  It was a great relaxing evening and so enjoyable.  In the Grand Californian Hotel they had a pumpkin display that was completely edible and you can see the ingredients in the middle picture.  They always have these amazing gingerbread houses at Christmas time and I never knew they did the same thing during Halloween.  They are always fun to see and inspire me when I do my cakes.  It was such a nice evening and can't wait to do it again.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #273 (1368)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #273 (1368).



A rather quick star, in that I know the technique well and I can complete them a little easier now.  Simple design and my star is done.

I went for my run/walk today and ended up doing six miles, which was great.  It's four laps around the park and while I was running they were setting this spot up for filming.  I didn't stop to ask what it was for though, because I wanted to remain focused on my run.  It was pretty interesting looking and it's funny how these things just pop up.  I would have liked a better photo but I was also a little hesitant to even try to take one close up.  This will do for me and I can remember what it looked like.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #272 (1367)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #272 (1367).



I tried again for the same style and I like tonight's.  It's weird sometimes how some appeal to me and some don't.  It seems rather random at times as well.

I am volunteering all week ,helping with Molly's 'hell week' for her APA program.  She is the set designer for this production and she oversees everything.  It is pretty awesome and I can't wait to see the final set and show!

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #271 (1366)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #271 (1366).



I tried something similar again tonight, but tonight, I am not as excited about this one.  For some reason, this one doesn't appeal to me as much and I'm not sure why.  The composition is a little off to me, that I know.

A long day and I am tired from standing up for three hours teaching my cake class.  They always seem to wipe me out, not sure why, it's doesn't seem like it is that tiring.  It went well though.  I hadn't take a photo yet again today, so sitting next to me on the couch, is one of my beading projects.  I keep looking at it and wonder if I like how it is going.  I'm not sure I like it.  I tried to color in on graph paper, to get a layout design, but as it's going, I am concerned I won't like it.  There is already so much work in it, that it's hard to think I won't like it when it's done.  I guess I will have to wait and see.

Well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kell

Project 365, Stars, Day #270 (1365)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #270 (1365).



Another star with the same design ideas of yesterday.  I really like the way these are turning out and they are fun for me.

Coming back from one of my errands this morning I took this picture of the display in my car.  It was a crazy hot day and not something one is expecting at the end of September.  The house is pretty brutal again as well, but there is not much you can do,  just wait it out.  Luckily it is cooling down a bit at night, right now it's 75, so it feels great.

That's all for now.  I am teaching a cake class tomorrow and I worked for 2 1/2 hours tonight making the flowers for it.  I am a bit tired and welcome the rest.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #269 (1364)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my star for day #269 (1364).




Something a little different for my star tonight and I really like it.  I like the composition and bold inking of it.  A change of pace for me and a welcome one.

I finished beading my spider web tonight.  Now I just need to sew it up into the clutch.  I still may need to find a cool lining fabric for it, but I need to check my stash.

Well that's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #268 (1363)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #268 (1363).



I decided to do a star similar to two nights ago, where I added the detail to the extra bits and not the star.  It's interesting and I like the difference of it.

I was working at the dining room table and noticed these two little guys on the window.  At first I wasn't sure if it was just a piece of something, but when I got close, I could see it was a bug.  They are very tiny and with little white, almost translucent bodies.  In the sunlight, they were difficult to see.  I'm not sure why I am fascinated with the bugs lately, but I do find beauty in mother nature's creations.  Of course I am also easiest with it when they are on the outside.  : )

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #267 (1362)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #267 (1362).



A couple swirls through a star tonight, back to some of my favorite designs.  Simple, fun and easy to do.  The spiders are still out in back and two of them have been hanging out during the day some more.  This one has some cool coloring, a cream body and orange/red legs.  The picture is kind of blurry, I couldn't get that close with my phone.  It also freaked me out a little to get any closer.  This will do for me.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #266 (1361)

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my star for day #266 (1361).




My focus today was to have the little accents have the details.  It is simple again but with a different take and I like the way it turned out.

I am posting early because Chris and I are going to a fundraising dinner.  His bank bought a table at a business schools fundraiser and I get to go.  It is a couples table this time, where normally it is just him with business clients.  I am excited to dress up and go out for a fancy evening. 

That's all for now.  I have to start getting ready.   : )   We need to leave early, by 4pm, to get up to Beverly Hills by 6pm.  Very exciting for me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #265 (1360)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #265 (1360).



Busy day and back to school night at the high school.  The last one for us and it's kind of crazy.  Everyone is growing up and it is hard to believe.   Just a quick drawing tonight, I am a little tired.  I started a new purse and was hoping to get it done for a fundraiser we are going to tomorrow night but I had to high expectations.  I thought I would be able to spend more hours on it today but that didn't work out.  It is a great start and it will just be for another special occasion.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #264 (1359)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #264 (1359).



I decided to do last nights star again, but this time ink it in.  It still is cool to me to see how different they look. 

I got some great photos this morning after dropping Molly off at school.  The sky looked so cool and the clouds were creating all these cool shapes.

That's all for me.  I started my star very late tonight and now I need to get to bed. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #263 (1358)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #263 (1358).



Tonight's star is a little different from what I have been doing.  I tried to do some different graphic details and I am happy with the way it turned out.

A photo update of how my purse is coming along.  I probable only have a couple more rows to do and then the beading will be done.  Then it's just putting the bag together, which for this bag will be the quicker part.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #262 (1357)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #262 (1357).



I decided to do the same star as yesterday but ink it in.  I really like seeing the difference between the two.  I like them both and each for their different qualities.

It was a cool foggy morning here.  The mist was in and it left dew on all the spider webs, and there were a few around the yard.  This is the best picture I could get, using the neighbors roof as a backdrop, so you could see the web.  The amount of work is incredible to me and the fact they you see them making one every night is just as incredible.

Well that's about all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #261 (1356)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #261 (1356).



I like tonight's star and I was thinking of inking some of the shapes in but I decided to keep it simple.  I might do something similar tomorrow and then ink the shapes and see how it goes.

We went through the car wash today.  I honestly can't remember ever going through one but perhaps I have.  We always used to wash our cars by hand.  My car was filthy to say the least, because I haven't washed it because of our drought.  Anyways, Molly just went through one last week with her friend, and she was so excited to go again.  It was pretty funny to see her expressions and Hannah thought we were both crazy, which was also funny.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #260 (1355)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Friday.  Here is my star for day #260 (1355).



A little different look for tonight and I like it.  I was working on my star in my bedroom and I came out to find my 'little' girls taking their naps this afternoon.  Cute stuff for me.  I'm not sure they will like the pics but I love them.

That's all for now.  Chris is Oklahoma City for work this weekend, so I just picked up pizza and we are having a girls movie night.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

Project 365, Stars, Day #259 (1354)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #259 (1354).



A fun bunch of circles with my star tonight.  I went for a run today around the library park.  I have been wanting to take a picture of this for a couple weeks now.  They are not adding any water to the pond anymore because of the drought, and it is now covered with growth.  It looks pretty cool and I wanted to take a picture, and today I took the time to take it.  I need a few close up shots as well but I didn't want to pause for to long, because I was working on my time.  There is a little white bird in the middle of the picture, it's a little hard to see but he is there.  I like the overall photo and the composition.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #258 (1353)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #258 (1353).



A relatively simple design and still cool to me.  I got to spend a little more time on my beaded spider web today.  This is what I have so far.  I still have quite a few rows to do but hopefully I can spend a little more time on them in the next few days.  We had a home appraisal today, so that has been my focus for the last few days or so, and now I can move on to other things I want to do.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #257 (1352).



A quick star but I like the design of this one.  I was working at the kitchen sink and looked out the window and saw this beautiful view.  I went outside to take a few more pics.  The sunlight was just beautiful and everything sparkled.

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #256 (1351).



A simple star tonight and a fun simple picture.  I did not sleep well at all last night and now it is hitting me pretty hard.  Feeling like I could get to bed a little early and get some sleep, so that's my plan.

Thanks for stopping by!

Project 365, Stars, Day #255 (1350)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #255 (1350).



A star with a little of the same design style from two nights ago.  A little simpler, I didn't spend quite as much time on this one.  I like the idea of filling in the shape with other images, it creates a cool look and I will play with this technique some more.

Hannah was working on her jewelry homework on the dining room table.  She spreads out while she is working, just like I do.  I think you need to when you are creating, it's part of the process.  She has a couple of earrings done and the are made using an ice tea can, pretty cool.

We had a busy day of everyone working and doing there own thing.  I also took a little time for a moment of silence and remembrance.  It still seems hard to believe when I look back on that day.  Thinking of all those who lost loved ones on that day and all the men and woman of service who protect us daily.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #254 (1349)

Hello,

I hope you had a good Saturday.  Here is my star for day #254 (1349).



Back to a simple star tonight and I like this one too.  I am super tired today.  Chris and I went for a six mile run/walk today and it was the farthest that I have gone.  We are prepping for a half marathon and I need to get some longer distances in.  It felt pretty good while I was doing it but boy am I tired and sore now.

The girls helped out with some photos again tonight.  I like getting pics of them, so I am happy that they don't mind me taking them.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #253 (1348)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #253 (1348).



I started my star very early today.  I wanted to take some time and do a fill in design for the star.  I am very happy with this one.  I probable spent an hour on it, going back and forth with some different designs.  I have ideas in my mind and sometimes they are difficult to get out on paper.  Hopefully I will take the time to play around with this some more because I like the design so much.

Hannah was working at the table on a jewelry project for school.  I pulled out my camera and then she started acting, pretending to cut off her finger and all the dramatics that go along with it.  Funny girl she is and I love that personality.

That's all for me.  Chris and I are going to a dance class tonight.  It's been quite some time since we have been, and I am looking forward to it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #252 (1347)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #252 (1347).



Some interlocking stars to create a pattern for tonight.  I started out not knowing what I was going to do, and just drew the one main star.  From there I added the other stars, connecting them to existing points.  It's not to bad for drawing on the fly and not thinking about a pattern.

I have the base rows done on my spider web and now I can start to fill in the detail of the scallop inner web.  It's looking pretty cool and I hope to finish all the beading by the weekend.  I'll keep you posted.  : )

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #251 (1346)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #251 (1346).



I went back to some of my favorite type of design styles for tonight.  I wanted to get my star done a little earlier, so I could try and bead later tonight.

The sun was setting and I got this picture quick before it went away.  It is a simple picture but I like the sunlight on some of the leaves and the darkness of the others.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #250 (1345)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #250 (1345).



A simple star tonight with some fine lines.  I drew this up around 8pm and was going to bead some more but went on to another project.  I just finished that project and decided to take a picture of my current progress on my handbag.  I am trying to get a few fall beaded bags done by the end of the month and get them up on Etsy.  They are more Halloween theme and I am excited to see how they turn out. 

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

Take care,
