Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #243 (1704)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #243 (1704).


I was going for something a little different tonight and wanted to see how a word would look in the styles I have been doing.  I did it, but I'm not sure how much I like it.  The composition doesn't flow and that's something my creative brain has a hard time with.  I do like the idea of it but would have to play more with different ways of completing it.


We took the puppies for a walk again tonight and they just loved it.  A little bit of running and they are tired.  It has also been extremely hot here and the house is 88 degrees (at least that's what the thermostat says).  A nice walk, a hot house, time for a nice nap on the floor.  Cute as always.  That's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your night!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #242 (1703)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #242 (1703).


Combinations of drawings over the past few days.  I am having fun with these but perhaps I should change it up again.


Chris and I took the puppies for a walk tonight.  The sun is setting earlier and we were treated to this on our way home.  There was the warmest glow of orange throughout the sky, as the sun was setting.  Very peaceful and beautiful and what an image to end the night with.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #241 (1702)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #241 (1702).


More of the same design wise.  I am having fun with trying to think of new ways to put the pieces together, making different compositions.


I was making the bed this morning and the boys came in and were wandering around the room.  Tahoe stepped up on the drawers I have and went right to the back of the closet.  Sometimes he walks in there and comes back out.  I usually call him right back out.  Today though, he curled right up and laid down.  Well I couldn't just call him right out because of course I needed to take a photo.  He was to freakin' cute and I had to capture it.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #240 (1701)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #240 (1701).


Working with the same ideas as some others lately but wanted to contain the leaves to the circle.  I finished the drawing and inked it in and it looks like a face to me now.  It looks like it could be in a Tim Burton movie.  It looks a little creepy and sinister to me.  Interesting how that can happen, with no intention.


Back home and a lovely sunset to end the night with.  You look one way and just see the hint of pink in the clouds.  You turn 180 degrees and see the oranges and pinks of the actual sunset.  Very cool in my book.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #239 (1700)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #239 (1700).



I did my drawing at the airport and just inked it in when we got home.  Some crazy photos on the plane ride home.  We are home now and it feels good to be home.  I look forward to sleeping in my own bed.  It's 10:54pm now, so that's 1:54am east coast time.  I am tired and it's time for bed.  Looking forward to tomorrow and getting back to my schedule.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

(I had to update this post with the correct dates.  For some reason I dated everything the 28th when it was in fact the 27th.  A long day of travel must have gotten the better of me.)  : )

Hello,

A really quick post tonight.  We have had a long day and are about to start a movie and I don't like to miss any parts.  : )

A simple drawing and photo.  That will be all for me tonight, the movie is starting.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #237 (1698)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #237 (1698).



We just got back from the wedding.  We had to stop at mom and dad's and pick up our stuff and the head to Deanna's to spend the night.  (Chris and his family is staying at mom and dad's for the next two night.)  Well, we got here and I forgot my drawing items.  I started before we left for the wedding and ended up leaving them in the dining room tonight.  So I only had a pencil to do my drawing, which is fine, it's just a little harder to see.

Here are the clutches I made for Stephanie and her bridesmaids.  The solid purple color in the girls bags, is the actual dress fabric.  It was fun to make these special bags for her and her bridesmaids.  It was a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception.   It's late and it's been a long day and now I am ready for bed.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #236 (1697)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #236 (1697).



More of the same for my drawing.  These are fun and they come together quickly.    The girls and I helped set up Stephanie's reception today.  They are holding it in a converted barn and it is a beautiful place.  There is one photo that shows the blank tables and barn.  We brought everything else and set it all up.  The longest process was ironing all the table cloths.  The finished product is just wow!  I can't wait for the wedding tomorrow.  We are all so excited for her and we are so glad we could be a part of helping it all come together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #235 (1696).



More of the same for my drawing tonight.  I really like these and will continue to have fun with coming up with different ways to tweak them.  My photo is a close up of another project I am working on.  I can't show the finished product yet, but I will be able to share it on Friday.  It's been a long day and I am ready for bed.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #234 (1695)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #234 (1695).



Simple drawing to end the day.  A very busy one, helping my parents do a little clean out of their attic.  So much stuff to go through.  Then I got to squeeze in a call, for my apprentice program, and then we took our mom out for a belated birthday dinner.  The photo is after we got home from cleaning the attic.  It started pouring just when we left.  Crazy New York rain, that Alyssa really misses.  I thought it would be a fun photo.  

That's all for me.  Still a few things to do.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #233 (1694)

Hello,

I hope you are had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #233 (1694).


I went to the style from two nights ago.  I really liked the look of the leaves on the end of the swirls(lines).  I like these compositions and I think they flow nicely.


I am working on a little something but can only show you a small part right now.  In a couple of days I can show you everything that I have been working on.  I liked adding the filter to the photo and changing up the color and look of it.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #232 (1693).



A nice quick drawing tonight.  Some fun swirls going through a circle and I am done.  We had a nice day visiting with family that ended with an ice cream cake to celebrate three August birthdays.  The girls ended their night with a couple rounds of Clue.  They love their games, and it's so fun to listen to them laugh and have fun.

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

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #231 (1692).

  

I sketched tonight's circle on my 5 hour plane ride to NY.  I just inked it in now, before I go to bed.  Alyssa, Molly and I flew today for my niece's wedding, which is next Friday.   Chris and Hannah come next week.  We arrived safe and sound.  It's great to see family again and it's nice to hang out and relax with them.   Everyone else is in bed now, after we watched a movie together.  I am just finishing up my post and journal and I am off to bed as well.  I hope to get a little more sleep tonight, last night I only got three hours.  : )

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

A really quick drawing, pen to paper tonight.  I needed to get it done quick, I didn't start until 11:15pm.  Have lots to do before tomorrow morning and still need to finish packing for our trip.  That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #229 (1690).



More of the same for my drawing tonight.  Molly's new look for my photo!  Her hair was so damaged from coloring it for a couple of years, that she wanted to get it down to her natural roots.  She came to me and said she wanted to do a buzz cut and I was a little surprised.  She has had long hair for so long that I couldn't imagine it.  She was confident in her decision and it's her head of hair, so I supported her decision.  I think she looks adorable!  I admire her for her confidence and style.  So cool.

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

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #228 (1689)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #228 (1689).



A very early start to today.  Chris was up at 4:30am, because he had to get going and pick his boss up at LAX.  I was actually already up because I was not feeling well and tossing and turning all night.  I thought perhaps I could lay in bed and fall back to sleep, but no go.  So I was up nice and early and got my journaling done, took puppies out, took my pictures, did my drawing all before 6:30am.  It was a very productive morning.  I hit a wall about 8:30am, so I took a 30 minute rest and was back up for the rest of the day.  Still feeling a bit run down but hopefully on the way back to normal.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #227 (1688).


More of the same tonight.  I am really having fun with this style and just changing up the designs slightly.


My mom called and asked if I had some bags in stock for a friend of hers.  She is looking for the messenger style, so I pulled out my bin and took photos of the ones I have.  These are a few years old, which is kind of hard to believe.  I have not made a new one of these in a while.  I really haven't been sewing for the purpose of sales in a long time.  Lately I have been playing with my old patterns and working on the inside structure of my handheld clutches.  It has been months of work but I think I have them where I want them.  Finding and making the time to work on them has not been a priority lately, I am trying to adjust that.  Always fun to pull out my old bags and see what I have done.

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

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #226 (1687)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #226 (1687).


A little bit of a throwback with a butterfly tonight.  I was inspired by last nights design, seeing a sort of butterfly head in the drawing.  It's kind of fun to combine my subject from my first year of project 365 with my fifth year.


While we were on our RV trip the girls had puppy duty.  During Molly's time, she watched Christmas movies, worked on Christmas puzzles and made hot chocolate in her Christmas mug.  She has got the fever for sure and she cracks me up.  She is still working on the second puzzle and doesn't want to pick up the first until the second one is done.  She also has a countdown on the chalkboard.    She is crazy for Christmas for sure.  : )

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

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day!  Here is my circle and photo for day #225 (1686).


Similar in design as some others and I really like the way this one turned out.  It is really fun to me and I like the flow.


Back home so that means that I need to have some pics of the boys.  Here they are in all their cuteness today.  We had a busy morning and afternoon of cleaning the RV.   The laundry, dishes, and grill all had to be cleaned and put back away.  I also cleaned the bathrooms and mopped the floor.  We got it all done and the RV is back in storage.   It feels great to get it all done and now we are going to relax with some dinner and a movie.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #224 (1685)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #224 (1685).




Back to some of the similar designs of last week.  I drew this one up after we got home and I am pretty happy with it.   It was 5 1/2 hour trip home, and we unpacked the RV when we arrived.  It was a lot of work, but that's what you have to do when you get back.  I still have some clothes and other things to put away but we did a good job.  Chris and I are both pretty tired but we had a fabulous trip.  This last photo of the trip seems so fitting.  The moon nestled in the sky above the mountains and road.  Such a cool pic.  That's all for me.  Chris is already in bed and I need to get to bed soon.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #223 (1684)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #223 (1684).


I drew this one while we were driving for 5 hours today.  I am a little tired and congested tonight, so I didn't go back over and bold up my lines.   Once through and I was done.  I have to say I don't like it quite as much, but it will do.


We got to our stop in Lone Pine, CA.  It was 99 degrees when we arrived, quite a big difference from Lake Tahoe.  It is still pretty and here is a panoramic to show you.  We are the only ones here tonight, so we are chilling in the RV.  A little dinner and perhaps a game or two.  Tomorrow we head back home, so it is just a quick stop.

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

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #222 (1683).


A little variation on what I have been doing lately.  The circles are nice tiny accents tonight.


We started our morning with a nice three mile walk.  Herb and Lynn come here often and have a little loop they like to do, with their dog Ruby.  A few of us joined along and it was a great start to the day.

That's all for now, I am done early again, so I can enjoy the evening.  They have live music right across the street on the lake, so we are heading over there for some fun.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great night!

Take care,

Getting everything done a little early today.  I did my drawing early this morning while the guys were golfing.  My photo is of our early afternoon walk along the lake.  It's nice to be done early and now I can relax and go enjoy dinner and the evening.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your evening!

More of the same for my drawings.  Just fun and simple to do.  My photo well, wow.  We were having a friendly competition game of Cornhole and when I had a break, I walked down to take a few pictures.  Seriously does it get any better than this?!?  A beautiful end to a wonderful day.  So happy and blessed to be able to appreciate all that I have and where I am.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #219 (1680).


More of the same with just slight variations.  It's fun to just tweak them a bit and see how different they look.


A great day of riding bikes around part of the lake and getting to a spot where you stop and enjoy a couple rum runners.  What a way to spend the day with friends.  So nice to have people who know their way around and are showing us all the great spots.

That's all for now.  Dinner is ready and it's time to enjoy some good food and drink.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,
