Project 365, Stars, Day #335 (1430)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #335 (1430).



An overall pattern for tonight's star.  I decided to keep the star small for this one, and I like the this better tonight.

I spent a couple hours today putting up the outdoor lights.  When I went to one section, this little guy was hanging out on a low divider wall.  I got close enough to take a few photos and then he was off into the nearby plant.  I have seen a lot more lizards lately,  I think they are cool so I enjoy seeing them.

That's all for now, it's late again, and I am tired from my day.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #334 (1429)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #334 (1429).



I decided to draw up a pattern first tonight and then hide (or not hide) a star behind the pattern.  I really like the pattern and the star is okay, perhaps I should have made it a little smaller.  I wanted the pattern to stand out a little more, so maybe I will try again with a different one tomorrw.

The trio of trees are done.  When everything is cleaned up and the room is dim, they just glow and look so beautiful.  I have a lot of Christmas and it may be to much for a lot of people, but we all love it here and that's all that matters for us.  It's a lot of work and that's why I like to get it up early, so we have longer to enjoy it all.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #333 (1428)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #333 (1428).



A classic design with some bold inking today for my star.  The end of the year and the ideas seem a little hard to come by.  I also have a lot of things I want to get done right now, so my mind is all over the place.

I heard Molly get up this morning about 6:30am, and then I heard the front door open, so I popped out of bed and went to see what she could be doing.  Well this is what she was doing, taking some photos of the sunrise.  I grabbed my camera and did the same, because it was subtle and beautiful.  I'm not sure how she noticed it this morning, but I thank her for it, and being able to see it myself.

Hope you have a wonderful evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #332 (1427)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my star for day #332 (1427).



A holiday sketch with just three tiny star details tonight.  I can't help but be inspired to do a holiday image because I have Christmas all around me.  I almost have all the decorations up now, just a few more things to do.  We will get our real tree this next weekend and that will be the last detail.

That's all for tonight.  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 #331 (1426).



Plain and simple tonight.  A nice long Saturday with lots of rain.  It kind of made it feel like winter around here because it got cold and dark.  Silly that makes it feel like winter, but I'll take it.

That's all for me tonight.  Thank so much for stopping and enjoy your evening!

Take care,

Very quick post, I am trying to get this in under the midnight hour.  I was shopping online for the last 4 hours, trying to pick things out, and doing research on everything.  I should have started earlier but I waited until 8pm to start.  So that's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #329 (1424)

Hello,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  Here is my star for day #329 (1424).



A simple star drawn while I got to sit down before we ate dinner.   I didn't really think of doing something with a message until after I drew this, so I decided to keep it as it.  A long day, with a lot of cooking still, but it was a great meal.  We had a nice dinner, and after we sat at the table for a bit and chatted.  It was a very nice evening.  Cleaning up is always the dreaded task after dinner but it wasn't to bad today.  Two rounds of dishes were already done.  :)  Just a few more things to take care of before bed and things are looking good.  Everyone else is in bed, so I think I should be heading off soon as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you had a fabulous day!!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #327 (1422)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #327 (1422).



I drew up my star with sketchy lines, like I usually do, but tonight I decided to ink them in with sketchy lines as well.  I really like the look of multiple line images, not sure why.  When Alyssa does her drawings with rough sketchy lines, they are always some of my favorites.

A big day of shopping and putting up decorations.  The grocery trip took about and hour and a half, and I still need to get a few things they didn't have.  I didn't want to go to another store today because I wanted to start to decorate.  I did get a lot done with decorating, but I still have a bit to do as well.  A nice day with a lot accomplished.

That's all for now.  A bit of down time for me now.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #326 (1421)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #326 (1421).



Another star with a similar design to last nights.  I like the fine line details on these ones.

I met Hannah at the mall today, we needed to go the Apple store.  We walked around just a little and I got to take pictures of one of the Holiday decorations.  This mall goes all out and the decorations are truly amazing.  This is just one of the many, and it is incredible in it's details, there are even silhouette in the windows.  Very cool.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Project 365, Stars, Day #325 (1420)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #325 (1420).



A little different design tonight and I like it.  I am having a difficult time thinking of different things, now that it's the end of the year again.  It's hard to believe there are only 40 days left until the end of the year but so it is. 

I wanted to get out the Christmas decorations today but it was raining all day.  Unusual for us but needed, so I will try again tomorrow.  There are some up above the garage so I thought it would be fun to take a photo of those and how I need to get to them.

Well that's all for now.  Hannah, Molly and I are watching a Christmas movie and loving all the silliness of the made for tv Christmas movies.  They are a something, but we love them and get hooked.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Stars, Day #324 (1419)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #324 (1419).



We got to the airport early and had about two and a half hours before our flight.  They have a Centurian lounge there so we got to relax and have some food and drinks before we left.  A nice way to spend time in the airport.  I did my star there and put my photo montage together.

We are home now and I get to relax tonight.  I just need to run out and pick up dinner and then I am done.  That's all for me, thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Stars, Day #323 (1418)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #323 (1418).



We came back to the room after Molly's tours to get warm and take a little break.  It was nice to sit and spend a little time in the afternoon on my star.  I like the segments of this one and it is a nice change.

Our campus tour started at 9am this morning at University of Washington.  There were a few parts and we walked around the campus for about 90 minutes.  It is a beautiful campus and I can understand why Mols loves it.  We visited the library that was used in the Harry Potter movies as their great hall.  It was a pretty incredible building, as were many others, because of the age of the University.  I find the attention to details of these buildings so amazing and the architecture spell binding.  Things just aren't made the same these days.

That's all for now.  We are heading out to Pike's Place soon and then to dinner.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #322 (1417).



A quick drawing and a quick post.  We are in Seattle tonight with Molly.  We are visiting the University of Washington tomorrow, it is one of her top picks for school,  I can't believe that my youngest is going to college next year, totally crazy.  Well it's been a long day for me, so that's all for now.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Project 365, Stars, Day #321 (1416)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my star for day #321 (1416).



Really simple stars again tonight.  I am so tired tonight, I was up at 5am, and now I am falling asleep at 9pm trying to draw my star.  Short and sweet it is.

I pulled out the Christmas plates and switched them with some of the everyday dishes in the cupboard.  I have forgotten to use them a couple Christmas',  so it's nice to have them out and ready to use.

That's all for me.  I need to get some sleep tonight.

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 #320 (1415).



A small star with tiny details.  I like the simplicity and simple beauty of this one.

Molly was driving home from school and I got to take this picture of the sunset.  The picture doesn't truly capture the colors but it was beautiful. 

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

Take care,

A late post here and a short one.  We got home tonight and I just got my drawing done quickly and put together some pictures from our last few hours in Hollywood Studios.  For some reason the photo isn't loading properly but it will have to do for now. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #318 (1413).




I did my star before we left for dinner because I wasn't sure how long it would take.  It is a simple star with a couple hidden ideas(images) in it.

We had a very special dinner tonight and the chef's table within Victoria & Albert's restaurant.  It is a 10 course tasting menu and it took 5 hours.  It did not even begin to feel like 5 hours because it was so amazing and enjoyable.  I could go on and on, but I am tired and we leave to go back home tomorrow.  So, it's off to bed.

Thanks so much for stopping by and  have a good night.

Take care,

It was a great day!  We went to Animal Kingdom today and now they have decorated for Christmas as well.  It inspired my star for tonight.  It may be a little early but I love all the Christmas decorations.  Some great photos of our day today.

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #316 (1411).





Another simple star tonight with another simple message.  We had a great day in Disney Springs today and finished the evening at Hollywood Studios.  The Christmas decorations were not up yet when we were there the other day and it was nice to see them up tonight.  They were so pretty and it was great to walk around at night.

That's all for me.  I want to say a very special thank you to all our veterans out there today, (and really everyday).  I thank you for all that you do and to your families as well!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,

A simple message for me tonight.  We saw one of Chris' favorite bands tonight at the food and wine festival, Sister Hazel.  They were great and we were up front for the two sets.  A very nice day and evening.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #314 (1409).



With the feeling of many today and uncertainty of everything, I wanted to do a simple message with my star.  I just wish that we all could love one another and embrace our differences and know that there is room for us all.

Christmas decorations are up in the Magic Kingdom and today they were filming their Holiday Special.  I love it and it makes me happy!

That's all for me.  We are off to make our dinner reservation.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #313 (1408).



A simple star for tonight.  We had a great day in Epcot today, having fun at the food and wine festival.  We finished with a great dinner at Blue Zoo, in the Dolphin Hotel.  It was a nice relaxing day filled with lots of good times, and one highlight was seeing Boys II Men in concert.  They were amazing and we watched two of their sets.  It was such a nice day and we didn't think of the election for the entire day, which was nice, with this election.  We both did mail ballots before we left, so we cast our votes.  It is a crazy election year and that's all I want to say about that.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Project 365, Stars, Day #312 (1407)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my star for day #312.



A simple star with some Mickey ears behind it.  Not really hidden but that is a thing that they do in Disney all the time, 'find the hidden mickey'.  So, simple and fun for me.

A few pictures of us in and around Animal Kingdom.  Today we spent the entire day in that park and finished with dinner at Tiffins restaurant, located within the park.  It was a great day and a wonderful dinner!

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

Project 365, Stars, Day #311 (1406)

Hello,

I hope you  had a nice Sunday.  Here is my post for day #311 (1406).





Its been a long day, we have been up since 2;30 this morning for our 5:30 am start for the half marathon.  It was a great morning and we both did a great job on our race.  I am a little sore, my knee definitely is the worse.  We walked around Hollywood Studios today and had a nice lunch.  We are back in the room now for a nap.  There is a party for all the runners in Epcot tonight and it starts at 8pm and goes until 1am, so we need some rest.  Some nice photos of the morning and a quick star done this afternoon before we headed out to lunch.

That's all!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly
