Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #120 (1581)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #120 (1581).


A fun swirl/wave again tonight.  I like the double lines used in the circle edges and around the wave.


I finished my drawing and said I didn't take any photos yet and Molly offered to pose and model a few pics, holding her little free coffee sample.  Of course she had fun goofing around posing in different spots.  My favorite were the bottom series where I had about 6 photos and these were a nice progression.   She was very helpful and I love snapping more photos.

That's all for me.  I hope you had a great weekend!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #119 (1580)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #119 (1580).


A fun circle with some swirl/wave designs.  It's simple and I like the look of this one.


We drove to San Diego for Renita's baby shower today!  It is an 1:45 min drive, with normal traffic, which in Southern California, never really happens.  We hit a slow patch and it took us an hour to go 30 miles.  Unfortunately in that stretch, we were rear ended.  A younger drive popped his clutch right into our back end, when we weren't moving.  It was quite the shocker.  Not to bad of damage on the car.  Luckily our air bags didn't go off but the back of our heads did hit the head rests pretty good.  Not a good feeling for sure.  Mols and I are ok, but our heads did hurt for a bit.  On to the shower, it was lovely.  Renita looked awesome and it was so nice to see her!  She loved the clothes I made for her and I was so happy to give her something special.

That's all for now.  I am hoping to get to bed a little earlier tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #118 (1579)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #118 (1579).



I was making a hat pattern today and I drew a circle for the top of the hat.  I was going to use that for my circle tonight, but I couldn't bring myself to just use that one, so I drew something up quick.  I think I kind of needed my signature and date along with the circle as well, but I'm not sure.


I finished my hat and outfit tonight.  Well, I just need to add buttons and snaps tomorrow, but other than that they are done.  It was so fun to create a little outfit again.  As you know I couldn't find my hat patterns, so I made up another one.  I just love the hats and usually make them reversible, so they are even more fun.

Well that's all for now.  It will be a long day tomorrow, with lots of driving as well, so I better get to sleep.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #117 (1578)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #117 (1578).


A simple image again with the bolder messy lines, as I like to call them.  I like how they go in and out and have a random shape to them.


We have a baby shower to go to this weekend and I wanted to make something special of course.  I used to have a line of kids clothes back before I had kids.  It was a small little line and I had fun with it while I did it.  I found that after I had kids, I didn't have time for the business anymore.  Well this was the perfect time to break out all of my patterns and see what I could make.  I am playing just a little and adjusting the patterns.  I can't find some of my patterns and I am kind of bummed, because I am missing my hat patterns, which were some of my favorite pieces.  Well I need to get back to work and sew some more, so that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #116 (1577)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #116 (1577).



Just a quick post tonight, it's been a long evening and I am tired.  A quick group of circles again for my drawing.  Now that the boys have all of their shots, we took them for their first walk to the park.  They did so good!  Along the way, one of the streets is lined with all these Bottlebrush trees.  I think they are just the coolest trees and got some fun pics for you tonight.

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

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #115 (1576)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #115 (1576).


Circles, and circles within circles.  It gets a little difficult at times to think of new things, so basically I just start drawing.  Sometimes they might look similar to others but I know they are slightly different.   I'll keep playing and seeing what I come up with.


We picked the boys up this morning and Hannah couldn't wait to get them.  They are all settled in back at home and it's nice to have them home.  We also had a pretty cool sunset tonight.  Sometimes I miss them because I am not looking out the window at the right time.  Tonight I was running around cleaning up and unpacking, and caught a glimpse of the sky.  I went outside and took some pictures to remember how special it is right at home.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #114 (1575)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #114 (1575).


A rather simple drawing tonight.  We are home again and it's nice to be home but it is always a little sad when a vacation ends.   It's late and nice to get a simple drawing done.


Some nice pics of our last day at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It was a beautiful morning and I wish we could have enjoyed more of it but we had a bus pick up time of 8:00am.  We had a lovely vacation and I am so glad we got the chance to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge again, it was a nice change and simply stunning views.

That's all for me.  I am just waiting for Alyssa to get home.  She had about a two hour break after we got home and then went to her night class.  I give her major props for that, jumping right back in.  I am feeling the time now, because it is after midnight on the east coast.  It's good to stay up though, because I know it will help me adjust a little better, and I won't be waking up at 4am our time.  Ok, now that's it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #113 (1574)

Hello,

I hope you had a great day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #113 (1574).



We had a very long day.  We were up at 2:30am for our half marathon and now it is 10:30pm.  We had a great day at Animal Kingdom after our race.  Unfortunately we have to be down to our bus at 8am, so we need to get to bed early tonight as well.  We still have a little packing to do, so it will be and early start as well. 

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #112 (1573)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #112 (1573).


We got back to the room after dinner and there was a giraffe outside our window walking around the savannah.  They are one of my favorite land animals and it was so nice to see it walk around and nibble here and there.  I was inspired to add the pattern to a circle tonight.  Just a quick drawing since I need to be up at 2:30am.  It's simple and to the point.


Today was our last day at Epcot.  Outside the butterfly exhibit they had these butterflies, and I got to take a little ride, how fun.  ; )

That's all for me.  Chris is already asleep, and I need to get to bed.  Chris, Hannah and I are doing the half marathon tomorrow and we are getting up at 2:30am to make sure we catch the 3:30am bus.  The race doesn't start until 5:30am, but we all have to get there early, yikes.  So that's all, have a wonderful night and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #111 (1572)

Hello,

I hope you are having a nice day!  Here is my circle and photo for day #111 (1572).


We took a little break this afternoon, so I got to do my circles early.  I wanted to work on making a few small ones, with little different details in each.  I think they came out cute.


One advantage of getting up early is seeing the sunrise.  This was my beautiful view this morning.  It looks fake or something out of the movies, but this is what I captured this morning.  Such a great way to start the day!

That's all for me.  We are off to dinner now and trying a new place.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #110 (1571)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #110 (1571).


Alyssa and I stayed later at Hollywood Studios to watch the Star Wars show.  We sat down for about an hour waiting for it to start.  I drew these little circles with some water on the ground.  They work for my circle,s but when I got back to the room, I just had to draw a little something on paper as well.



We started our day in Hollywood Studios, went to Epcot for the afternoon and ended our evening in Hollywood Studios.  It was a busy day for sure and we are all pretty tired.  We have an earlier start tomorrow, trying to leave room by 8:30am, which is early for us, so I am off to bed.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #109 (1570)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #109 (1570).


Some fun small circles, just playing around with patterns within the circles.  We had a day of bouncing around.  We started off in Animal Kingdom, then to Hollywood Studios and ended our night in Disney Springs.  A lovely day full of adventure.  These long days of sun and walking are sure tiring me out, but I love them.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #108 (1569)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #108 (1569).



A beautiful day consisting of a little pool time and then the rest of the day at Epcot.  We got home early tonight about 9:45pm, which feels rather nice.  I did my photo montage while we were taking a break in Epcot and I just did my drawing when we came home.  These are the days when the photos come really easy, I have so many to choose from, and the drawings are a little more effort. I am a little more tired after spending the days outside and walking seven miles or so.  Not complaining about that, just a truthful observation.  I will continue to plug along : ).

That's all for tonight.  We have an earlier start tomorrow, and I want to get to bed a little early.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #107 (1568).




It was a very long day.  We left the room at 10:30 am and just returned at 11:50pm.  I drew up a circle as quick as I could, which was a little slow, and now I am just getting to the post.  A nice day but we are all tired.  The girls are all in bed, and probably asleep.  This is one of my favorite pictures of the day.  Just great girls!

That's all for me, I need to get some sleep.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

If you celebrate Easter, Happy Easter, and if not just happy day!  I am more of a Happy Vernal Equinox girl myself.  Here is my circle and photo for day #106 (1567).




We came back to the room for a break this afternoon and I had just a lovely relaxing view while drawing my circle.  It was so quiet and peaceful, and well just magical to me. 

Our break is over and now we are on our way to the Hoop De Doo Review, for dinner and a show.  Have a wonderful evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #105 (1566).



We spent the day traveling and we arrived in Walt Disney World tonight.  It seemed fitting that my circle would be a simple representation of the mouse.  A few pictures of us arriving and then having a drink before dinner.  A nice start to our family vacation, so excited.

That's all for me.  I need to get to bed early and try to adjust to east coast time.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #104 (1565)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #104 (1565).


Still playing around with the similar design ideas as the last couple of days.  I like the idea of this one and only seeing part of the design come through with the multiple circles.


A little snuggle time on the couch this morning.  I woke up with a horrible migraine and just couldn't shake it.  Tucker kept looking at me and following me around this morning and I just felt like he knew something was up and that they would be going to the kennel today, even though they have never been.  Well, it was about 8:30am and they were getting sleepy again, I thought I could use a rest as well, so we had our snuggle time.  It was so nice and they are just so sweet.

That's all for me.  Just a few more things to do around here and then off to sleep.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #103 (1564)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #103 (1564).


I wanted to go with a similar design type as yesterday.  I like the idea of it, I am not sure I like the design though.  I really like the waves, but my simple clouds didn't come out quite like I was thinking.  Room to experiment and play some more. 


Molly is working on a project for her favorite teacher.  It is not school related but Molly jumped at the chance to do something that is creative and off a Pinterest wedding board.   I am excited to see it when it's done.

That's all for me.  I'm getting a little tired and I have a few more things to do before bed.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #102 (1563)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #102 (1563).


I'm not sure where this one came from tonight, but I have a little tree for you.  I like it and think it would be fun to do one with more detail as well, but I wanted to finish a little early.


I have had a very busy day and didn't take any pictures again.  Here is an odd one, for many reasons.  This is my new computer that is a replacement for the broken one.  It has probably been sitting here for a month or so.  I just haven't felt like I had the time to set it up.  It is currently the gate to keep the puppies in the living room/ kitchen area.  A very expensive gate for sure.  Well I need to get it set up, so I can download photos that I have on my phone, since last year.  I decided tonight's the night, since Chris is out late with his boss and clients. 

That's all for me, I'm off to unbox that computer.  Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #101 (1562)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #101 (1562).


This circle looks like it could be a bouncy ball or an ornament to me.  I suppose it has to do with the direction of the designs and the style.  Simple and cute.


A beautiful full moon tonight.  It's really to bad that I can't get a photo to catch that beauty but this photo will help spark the memory.  I do like this picture with a little bit of the neighborhood and the moon shining above the palm trees.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #100 (1561)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #100 (1561).

 
I went back to a large circle with a design inside for tonight.  It's day 100 and I am having a difficult time some nights coming up with new ideas.  I have to say not many are new anyways, because I know I am inspired by my old drawings.  I have a style that is appealing to me and I know that those techniques come out often and tend to look similar.  I'm sure in some little way they are different, it just may be harder for me to see at times.


Tahoe can jump up on the couch with ease.  Tuckers little legs are to short and he can't make it up, although he tries his hardest.  When Tahoe is tired he likes to hop right up and lay down on the couch.  Now he is not allowed to do this, and I take him off right away, but he keeps trying.  Molly had a stash of things in the corner of the couch and today he jumped right up and wanted to sleep on her stuffed octopus.  He was just so cute of course I had to take pictures, then I did put him back down on his bed though.  If he didn't run right by me to get up there, I might have had a hard time finding him.  : )

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

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #99 (1560).



A simple little drawing tonight.  I was having a difficult time thinking of what to do and this is all that I came up with.  It will work for tonight.  : )

We went to brunch with friends today.  It was a lovely morning/afternoon.  The food was fabulous and the company awesome.  So nice to get out and hang with friends again.

That's all for now.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good Saturday!  Here is my circle and photo for day #98 (1559).



I did this quick drawing and my photo montage before we started watching a movie.  The movie just ended, I was getting ready for bed, and almost forgot that I didn't do my post at the same time.  So here you have a nice simple drawing and just the cutest little puppies.

That's all for me.  I still need to do my journal entries and then get to bed.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #97 (1558).


A parade of simple circles for tonight.  



A look at some of my prototypes in progress.  Still much more to do.  I only got to work in the studio for about an hour today, so not to much accomplished.  I hope to work more tomorrow.

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

Take care,
