The little bit of random...

I made a new blogger! It needs to be fixed up still and it obviously crazily empty, but at least I can post photos again. So go check it out. http://kiracontrary.blogspot.com/

The little bit of random...

Soooo apparently I've used up all my space that blogger allows and I can no longer upload photos due to that lack of space. I'm not really willing to spend the extra money to pay for space for a blog that I'm pretty sure only my sister actually reads. However I just started posting again and I don't really want to stop that either. I'm not exactly sure what to do, but I have to figure something out. Either start a new blog, or delete old posts, neither I really want to do : /. We'll see what happens. If you have any suggestions let me know. Until then...

Day 177!

So Hurricane Sandy took a tree down in my yard, a bit of my roof, and my electricity. However it didn't take away my creativity.

I decided to make some jewelry by candlelight. So going on Etsy soon!

Day 176!

I'm taking a photography class, and my last assignment was to reference another photographer's work. I chose John Batho and his ultra saturated Photocolore collection. Here's a few of my shots.

I don't think I really referenced his work as much as I just took photos of brightly colored objects. I probably should have referenced his Plastiques collection, it's just a bunch of plastic bags in a wet street.

Day 175!

First official day of fall, a good time to get back on track!

I have folders and folder of photos to post since my vacation in August, but I have been so busy with work and school that I just never seem to have the time. Instead of back tracking and posting for the dates missed, I'm going to try and start here, posting current photos at least once a week. I know I have failed my 365/the little bit of everything miserably. But let's hope I can get back on top of this!

I probably should have moved that cone, would have made for a better photo.

Day 174!

Oh my goodness I haven't posted in such a long time. 

But I do have an excuse. I have been so ridiculously busy, however busy in the most amazing way ever. At my new job I helped put these displays together!

This is the first real display I've ever done and it was unbelievably awesome. Especially since it's on 34th Street in New York.

Really wish the glare wasn't so awful. Oh well.

The little bit of random...

My friend was on campus today and sent me this.

They hung up my Bowie drawing! Now if we can only find what they did with my music store drawing, and my aviator displays.

Day 173!

Getting my creativity on!

With my store closing last month there was a lot of junk getting thrown out. So of course being that I hate to throw stuff out, I took this plastic cylinder.

I'm not really sure why I took it, not as if I needed it, but hey I found a use for it. Covering it with twine I made it a cute little hanging catch all for some of my jewelry.

The little bit of random...

After years of saying I would, with a different product than anticipated, I finally made an Etsy shop, selling these little guys! They're little pouches for your phone or money called MonstAHS and basically they're meant to protect your stuff.

If you have the chance check out my store http://www.etsy.com/shop/CloudsCrashShoppe
Buy something, favorite it, pass it along. Whatever you please.

Day 172!

If you live in the Central Jersey area you need to check out Dragon Bowl, it's a small Chinese/Hibachi/Bubble Tea restaurant. The food is amazing, the bubble tea is amazing, and they're relatively cheap.

I'm telling everyone to go because not many small restaurants stay open around here and I would hate for this place to close.

Oh and can you tell from my last two photos...yeah I'm on Instagram now.

Day 171!

I got a new job!

And it includes putting together things like this...how awesome!

"Take off that make up honey. I know what you've been missing."

The little bit of random...

My fifth Warped Tour in a ten year time span! 
Ten years? Jeez I feel old.
I didn't bother with my camera, so these photos are compliments of Dan.

Out of all the bands I got to see. Falling In Reverse, Yellowcard, Senses Fail, Four Year Strong, Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory and whoever else...

Taking Back Sunday and

Senses Fail put on the absolute best shows.

Not really sure why Senses Fail was on such a small stage, especially playing their home state. But either way they were amazing.

Day 169!

Def Leppard and Poison!

Exactly one year ago I was supposed to see Def Leppard perform at PNC. I bought tickets for my mom and I but then the show was postponed. And of course rescheduled for when I would be on vacation, so we couldn't go. Def Leppard came around again and this time I was able to see them! Way more money for these seats than the ones I had last year, and wayyyyyy higher up in the arena, the view was eh but could have been worse. There were seats way higher than mine.

Poison opened. Never really into them, but they put on a great show.

Def Leppard was amazing.

Here is part of Pour Some Sugar on Me. You can tell I was dancing, and I'm almost certain you can hear my mom singing.

Day 168!

I can't say much since my typos can be redikalis (sounds like a bad rapper name lol) but I found these two in one day and they're pretty bad.

This was on a drive-thru window.

And this at H&M. This is probably the worst, being it's a mass produced t-shirt.

Day 167!

Happy Fourth of July!

I'm almost certain my entire neighborhood knows my house will always have fireworks on the fourth. Not only did the kids across the street wait outside, but my neighbors set up lawn chairs to watch.

I didn't get any cool firework photos but my tiki torch looks pretty cool!

Day 166!

High Point, New Jersey!

Dan and I took a day trip to the highest point in New Jersey, High Point.

The view was amazing.
There is this extremely tall monument up there and you can take these spiral stairs to go up to the very top to see an even more stunning view (and you can see the mountains of NJ, PA and NY all at once), but after running the night before, taking one of the difficult/moderate trails in the woods, and it being 90 degrees out, we just couldn't make it. The air was so thick on top of that. I want to go back in the fall and try again when it's less hot out.
Here's the staircase up. Insane.
Turkey vulture!

There were so many butterflies there, it was so cool.

A blurry shot, but how cool is that sign? I wish I had Instagram because this would have been the epitome of an Instagram hipster photo!

Day 164!

Been working on someone's birthday present! 

Goodness I hope it comes out okay, there are about 50 panels going into this thing.

Patent Pending Pillows!

About a year ago I posted a photo of a Juicebox hoodie I had sewn into a pillow for Joe of Patent Pending. After I gave it to him I said if he had any more damaged hoodies or shirts I would totally sew them into pillows for him. In February he gave me about 25 super small t-shirts to sew. Not seeing the band play in months I just got the pillows to him now. He seemed to have really liked them, which I was worried about since I really don't sew all that well. 

He even sold a few at the show which was ridiculously awesome.

Day 161!

I wish my mom would come straight home after the grocery store.

Super sticky, I guess they still taste the same.

Day 160!

Blake's High School Graduation!

How cool is this? On a projector screen they show a close up of the stage with the graduate's senior photo next to it. Love it!

Blake and I!

Blake, my mom and I!

I wish people would stop using their cell phones for photos, they always come out so crumby.

Day 158!

The last day...

Today was the last day of my store being open. It was quite busy during the morning, then around 1:30, with three rounders of clothing all marked at $1 which is insane when our average priced shirt is about $54, a woman came in and bought all three rounders of clothing, approximately 200 pieces. So insane!

Also insane...I was a rebel. I wore my zombie shoes to work. Ooh man.

"Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane?"

Day 157!

Alien Ant Farm!!!!!
 My favorite band for last 11 years did a free show in AC, and it was amazing!

I post a lot about shows that I see and awesome bands, but seriously there is no other band that I love more than AAF.

I tried soo hard to get decent photos at this show and it was nearly impossible.

 This seriously was one of the best shows I've been to in such a long time. The crowd was pretty chill, the sound was awesome and it was Alien Ant Farm, need I say more?

Day 156!

I went to The Museum Of Natural History to check out their butterfly exhibit. Quite expensive, hot, and crowded like you wouldn't believe with kids trying to touch the butterflies as they got yelled at, it was well worth it just to have a butterfly land on my head.

I didn't get the greatest photos because there were so many people and my lens kept fogging up from the humidity, but I got a few.

I love this shot!

They're so beautiful.
