Project 365, Stars, Day #305 (1400)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #305 (1400).



A fun little star on a pumpkin for Halloween.  Molly dressed up as a scarecrow today.  She looked pretty cute and did a great job on her makeup.  She also thought it would be pretty funny driving and see what the reactions would be of others. 

A quiet Halloween for us so far, only one trick or treater.  It's pretty sad because I love seeing the little kids dressed up.  Our street light is out at this end of the cul-de-sac, so it's pretty dark down here.   I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween and a great evening!!  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #304 (1399)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #304 (1399).



A trio of stars tonight.  Nothing to exciting and not my favorite, but it is a star and it is done.  : )

We were taking down the decorations from Molly's party last night and she wanted to keep some of the balloons.  She tried to gather up as many as she could all in one trip.  They appear to be magically holding together, and I thought it was a really fun picture. 

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #303 (1398)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #303 (1398).



A rather simple star again tonight.  It was Molly's surprise birthday party tonight, that was put together by a couple of her friends.  There was a lot of prep the last few days, and the logistics of getting her out of the house, while we decorated and her friends arrived.  She was totally surprised, which was great, and she said she didn't have a clue.  It was an 80's & pajama party theme.  I made a mixed tape for her cake.  It was a two day process and I hid it in the oven over the two days.  It all worked like a charm and they had a great evening.  There are a few girls left and they are finishing the night by watching The Breakfast Club, classic 80's.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #302 (1397).



Back to a double line image for my star tonight, that's about all for the star.

The sky was so beautiful this morning.  It was a bit ominous and mysterious and it just pulled you in.  I really couldn't get enough of it and I took quite a few pictures.  I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I do.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #301 (1396)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #301 (1396).



I took the star from last night and drew it again with a little detail tonight.  Simple and bold detail and I like the way it turned out.  It will be cool to see it with some smaller intricate designs as well, so perhaps I will try that tomorrow.

These cute little Halloween decorations sit on my peninsula in the kitchen.  The little bird is new, and Hannah found it in Target.  I already have a few fall ones but not one specific with the Halloween colors.  He is so cute and it is such a nice addition to my decorations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #300 (1395)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #300 (1395).



An eight pointed star tonight, which looks a lot like the tree topper stars.  I kept it nice and simple tonight, but tomorrow I would like to play with different patterns in each section.

I started crocheting again for Christmas.  This is just one half of the fin for a mermaid tail.  I got this done pretty quick for me, I finished it this week.  I have to make the other half and then I can start work on the body of the tail.  I have two to make this year, so I needed to start early.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #299 (1394)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #299 (1394).



A bunch of my thin branch stars for tonight.  I love the thin lines of these stars.  A simple composition and I like it. 

It is getting cooler out, so on my run this morning there was still a little chill in the air.  The dew was all over the grass and trees and they all glistened when the sunlight hit them.  The pictures definitely don't do it justice but I thoroughly enjoyed what I saw this morning.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #298 (1393)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #298 (1393).



A simple star with a nice bold accent.  A gorgeous sherbet sky tonight.  I'm not sure the photo does it justice but it was breathtaking. 

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #297 (1392)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my star for day #297 (1392).






It's Alyssa's 22nd birthday today, which is even harder to believe than Molly's 17th last week.  These girls are so grown up and it really is hard to believe.  A few different stars for my illustration tonight and some fun pics of Alyssa's special day.

That's all for me.  Most everyone is in bed now and I am just finishing up my post.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #296 (1391)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #296 (1391).



A star that's a little more subtle, since the details are in the negative space.  A nice change I think.

The sun was setting when I dropped Molly off at school tonight for the show.   I wanted to get a photo and luckily I got a red light at the crest of a hill, and could snap a quick picture.

That will be all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your Saturday evening.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #295 (1390)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #295 (1390).



We just returned from seeing Molly's production of The Producers.  The entire cast did an excellent job!  I listened to the entire show from backstage in the green room last Friday, and it was really nice to see it out front tonight.  It is really amazing all the hard work these kids do, to put these shows together.  They are pretty awesome and better than things we've seen off Broadway. 

I got my star and photo done earlier today before we left for the play but I didn't have time to type up my post.  A little funky star and more of the air show photos.  I really can't seem to get enough of the air show pics.  You could even see some of their performance from our house.  They were coming in a little further to do some tricks.  Fun to watch.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #294 (1389)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #294 (1389).



An old style for my star tonight.  While picking up Molly today, I could hear the jets flying overhead.  Once I stopped, I could take a look around and see the fighter jets flying by.  It was really hard to get a photo because they were flying so fast.  I was lucky to get a little video and snap this photo within it.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #293 (1388)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #293 (1388).



A couple open ended stars tonight.  I really like the tiny one with the small squiggle details.

I was looking out the kitchen window and spotted this little one, so I decided to try and get a photo.   He was moving around and going behind the wall, but kept popping up.  I was patient and got close enough to get this pic.  I still think these little guys are cool and always point them out, when I see one.

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #292 (1387).



A little different star for the evening.  I like the open edges and not having them defined. 

I spent a little time in the studio yesterday making a card for Molly.  It's been a while again, and it's always nice to see what I can create, when I spend a little time.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #291 (1386)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #291 (1386).


A nice simple star wishing Molly happy birthday.  Molly turns 17 today and it is a little hard to believe that my youngest is 17.  All my girls are so grown up, where did the time go...

Well that's all for me.  We just got back from Molly's choice of dinner and we are just hanging around chatting.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #290 (1385).



Just a rather quick star tonight.  I think I have done something similar but I'm not quite sure.  I feel like I am running out of ideas at times.  I will keep trying though.

Chris suggested pot roast for dinner tonight.  I ran out to get the groceries and we put it all in the crock pot.  It smells delicious and I can't wait for dinner.  It's almost time, so that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #289 (1384)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #289 (1384).


I played a little with the scallops tonight.  People wanted to watch a new movie, so I wanted to finish a little quicker, so I could pay attention to it.  If it is a movie I have seen, I don't mind working on something, but with a new movie, I like to watch all of it and not be distracted.

I didn't have my photo figured out yet tonight after I finished my drawing, so Hannah was kind enough to help me out with a few poses.  Thanks babe!

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

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #288 (1383).



A really simple star tonight.  I volunteered at Molly's play tonight and didn't get home until 11pm.  It was opening night and they did a fantastic job.  It was pretty cool to see her working back stage and rocking it.  The school puts on amazing productions thanks to all of the talented kids.  I can't wait to sit out in the audience and enjoy the show.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #287 (1382)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #287 (1382).




I have a thing for the scallops as you can tell.  I really like the little detail and the design they create.  I'm not sure how much more I can do with them, but I probably will play a little more to see what I can do.

This butterfly landed on the ground next to me, while I was stretching by my car, after my run.  I took a few photos, then walked around carefully to get a few pics with this view.   It was pretty awesome and it didn't stay long, just enough time for my photos.  I thanked if for stopping by to see me, as well as giving me a great photo for the day, as it flew away.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #286 (1381)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #286 (1381).



I was inspired by last nights star for this one.  I loved the little scallop design and wanted to do something similar again tonight.  I love the movement of the little circles and the use of the scallops on the inside of the star.  This is a fun one for me.

I got to work on this handbag today. I still have more to do for the original design but I might want to add more to it.  Once the beads get on the bag, things look a little different and I feel it might need a little more. I'll see how things progress and show you the finished piece.

That's all for now.  I'm actually still waiting for Molly to call me and let me know she is done with rehearsal.  They are about 25 minutes over right now, so I hope she is done soon.  It is getting late and the kids need to get some rest.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #285 (1380)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #285 (1380).



I worked on my star earlier today, took my time, and I felt a little more relaxed while doing it.  I really like the way this one turned out and I like the little details. 

I spent some time cooking again today.  It was a little cooler in the morning, so I felt like it was a soup day.  Potato leek soup and sweet potato biscuits were on the menu tonight.  They both tasted delicious and I have left overs for another meal, bonus.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #284 (1379)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #284 (1379).



When I finished my drawing, I wasn't that thrilled with it.  Seeing it now and a little later from when I drew it, I like it, and it has grown on me.  Still a relatively simple design but I like the composition.

I had a difficult morning and to let it go I decided to bake.  I spent most of the day in the kitchen and I ended up with lots of yummy treats.  The toffee cinnamon oatmeal cookie bars was a new recipe and they are delicious.  I left chocolate chips out of one side for Hannah and I (just a couple thrown on top).    I have to say they didn't need the chips at all and I liked the bites without the chips better.

That will be all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #282 (1377)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #282 (1377).



The idea for my star is to look like a bunch of witches hats, stacked on each other.  I think it came out pretty good and it is a little different take on what I have been doing.

I wasn't sure what to take a photo of today.  I was just walking around outside and nothing was coming to me.  I bent down to look at the little clover buds and decided that a close up of the plants would make for a cool photo.  I think it is cool and I love looking at the plants in a different way and getting up close.

That's all for me.  It's nice to have my post done a little early.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #281 (1376)

Hello,

I hope you had a great day.  Here is my star for day #281 (1376).



I like tonight's star, a little different and I like the pattern within. 

I pulled down all the Halloween bins today and got the decorations out.  It was another hot day though and I found it a little difficult to get into the mood.  I did get it all done and it looks really nice now they are up.

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

Take care,
Kelly
