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!!!

PHOTOGRAPHY >>> SOLVE SUNDSBO.





Solve Sundsbo is a norwegian fashion photographer who cleverly manipulates images making them out of the ordinary.His work incorporates everything from X-rays and 3-D scanning to hi-tech manipulation and laborious hand-painted retouching. “If I’ve got a style,” says Sundsbo, “it’s that I’ve got no style.” - SOURCE
