THE LATEST UPDATES + BEYOND....

Sooooooo, where do I begin!

OK - the blog. I have been working day and night during whatever free time I have, to catch up on the blog to clear up the tech difficulties. Believe it or not, I have spent hours and hours browsing thru earlier posts deleting all the misc stuff I feel you..and I, can now do without. Having said that, when I went to post new images, I was still getting a promt that said I've exceeded my upload quota! ARrrrggggh! Now - who do I have to slap???

Soooo temporary Quick Fix Solution #1 - I'VE STARTED A NEW BLOG!! Yess!! And it's called SPANDEX + CHAOS. (You know there is so much fun to follow this name!) But this one is only for lifestyle purposes. All the party pics (that I know I tend to post in large quantities), leisure, music, art, event promos, etc etc. So tune in HERE for the latest on the social tour!! I've needed a few drinks over the past week to keep me sane thru it all...

Ideally I will still have this blog to keep focused on the visual inspirations, design developments, and so on and so forth...

Temporary Quick Fix Solution #2 - BUTCHDIVA.COM!!! I own it! But wait, DON'T go all rushing there at once! Butchdiva.com is currently raw + under construction... but rest assured it's being worked on as we speak and you will soon be able to catch up on the blog, the latest trends and happenings, event galleries, + even shop!! all via the website! And all these blogger terms + conditions will then be a thing of the past!!! Can I get an AMEN!

Upcoming Events - BUTCH DIVA Model call!!!! June 19th!!! Stay tuned in HERE for further details to come!! Just note this model call is a big deal! You've been asking, and now here is your chance! It's in efforts to find key models for events and photoshoots throughout the summer! Gotta be pro-avtive! So mark your calendar and spread the word! Big things goin'wan! :))

PLUS!!! BUTCH DIVA Sample Sale / Pop-Up Shop!! Email butchdiva@gmail.com to be placed on the mailing list for it if you aren't on the mailer already! Exclusive event!... if I open it to the public, there will def be some trampling issues and I'm not trying to promote that kinda chaos! lol - so just hit me up!

ANNNND >>> I still need you!!! Interns, assistants, Sales Reps, Publicists...etc etc. BUTCH DIVA is growing @ a rate beyond my control and I just can't do it alone... no matter how many metallic super woman pull-ups I make to accomodate! So please! contact me at butchdiva@gmail.com for further details...

And last but not least >>> Thank You Thank You! Thank You! For allll the emails, messages, and support during this crippling time for me. Not being able to share with you guys on a consistent basis has had me not only feeling soooooooo tense! But it's like a handicap! You gotta see all the new prints! All the new clients! And just all the latest inspiration feeding my membrane!! Blogging has been my crack!! So imagine being denied that "fix"!! Ugggh- I die! But trust that I'm on it!!! Just bare with me and continue to tune in! And just another friendly reminder >>> the temp blog can be seen HERE!!!

DEAR BLOG READERS > PLEASE BARE WITH ME....

So it's only Tuesday and I'm having a rough week! I'm having major technical difficulties, the damn internet has been going in and out all weekend! When I finally think it's back up and I try to catch up on the blog, I come to find out I have exceeded my photo upload limit!!! Say whaaaaat! Arrrghhhh! I thought it was unlimited! WTF? Now I have to fish back thru my archives and make decisions on what can be deleted. Ughh! What a task that will be! I'm kinda sorta considering a BUTCH DIVA lifestyle blog that will cater more to the party pics and Social Touring, and the BUTCH DIVA blog can focus solely on the inpspration, design and developments. What do you think about that?? Hit me with your feedback via butchdiva@gmail.com...

Having said that, I strongly advise you guys to browse the earlier archived posts NOW if you're interested - because I may be forced to take a lot down from my earlier blogging days...:(...until I purchase more upload storage or set up additional new blog...

Other than that, I spent the majority of my holiday weekend sewing and working from home....I need a power team!!!! if you're interested in contributing to BUTCH DIVA and assisting on developments, please email me at butchdiva@gmail.com! There is soooooooooo much work to do and never enough time to get it all done by myself!

I'm also going thru renovations in my studio, I get bored easily like that - so I'm changing a few things to keep it fresh....

Between trying to keep up with the blog, filling all these spring/summer custom orders, developing butchdiva.com, planning for upcoming events and collabs, and still trying to focus on designing Spring 2010 collection, I'm like WHOA!!! I need 1 of several things like NOW!!! An assistant...a vacation (but that would only back me up more)...a whole lotta dough to catch me up on investments...or a companion to hear me out and offer massages at the end of the day...but neither of those things are presenting themselves at the moment...so I take it a day at a time!

I only ask that you bare with me, keep the faith, browse archives and other affiliated blogs that inspire me, and continue to tune in, as I will be back up and running as soon as possible!

Much love! Thanks for the continuous support!!!
