12/25/11: Just About Ready

Happy Holidays, you guys!!

I just dropped in to let you know that all is well.  Progress has been slow & steady, but most importantly…satisfying.  2011 sucked!!  But after suffering numerous set-backs I’m almost current on my bills–HELL YEAH!  And the V4 is just about ready to show.  I’m currently waiting on rivets.  Once they arrive, I’ll bang out one more round of samples.  This last round will be sales-ready.  I know that I’ve said this before, but sometimes things don’t pan out as planned.  In any case, once sampling is complete I’ll be off and running!  I can’t wait to step back into the arena…

I’m still trying to determine which denim shops I want to pitch, and how.  I’m a bit leery of putting myself out there as I’ve noticed that, as with any industry, the playing field isn’t quite level.  I’m just hoping that good work will prevail in the end.  I’m completely confident in my work; that’s for sure!!  Anyhoo…

That’s about all I’ve got for now.  As always, I’ll be certain to keep you all posted.  Until next time….stay tuned!!

Long Overdue

What’s up, you guys!

I’ve been getting quite a few emails from people inquiring about Pulsar V4. I know that I’m long overdue for an explanation. And I’ve been meaning to update my blog. But as one month turned into another, and so on, I started feeling guilty about not sharing my thoughts, or rather, about not having any note-worthy thoughts to share! You see, it’s like this in a nutshell…

The V4 Pulsar iz complete! It has been for about a month now. However, I won’t be ready to go into full production on it until my bills are paid off. The end. And there’ya have it, folks: the complete story!

Paying my bills down however, has been rather slow-going to say the least. I make a sucker’s wage at my night job! Consequently, I’ve been seriously considering completing my degree. Additionally, unfortunate/costly events keep popping up, further hindering my progress. Most recently, my car broke down! So now I’m forced to spend money (that I don’t have!) in order fix it. Additionally, I’ve had some recent relationship issues. Women–ugh!! Aside from oneculture, which brings me *the greatest joy*, my life has been littered with one mentally draining distraction after another. So, needless to say, that I haven’t exactly been in the writing spirit. So please put yourselves in my jeans for a moment and try to find it in your hearts to forgive my near 3-month silence.

I like to write when I’m focused. And today I got my morning started with eggs, toast, coffee and 150 push-ups. Honestly? I feel like fighting! Seriously, haha:) But I’m in great spirits and completely energized—>let’s go!!

So, as stated above, Pulsar V4 is complete. However, I don’t plan on sharing any photos or details about my work until I go into production. Just know that Version 4 will be the final edition (for now). After three years, I feel that I’ve finally composed a near perfect ending to the Pulsar story. I’m moving onto developing other styles after the coming production. I have the course mapped out and I’ll begin working on those items when the time comes. My next move may shock you!

I’ll be heading back in for sampling shortly. These next V4 pairs will be sales-ready samples, my “demo tapes”, if you will. And once those are complete, moreover, once my financial plate has been cleaned, I’ll begin shopping my “demos” around to various boutiques. Having said that, for those who wish to grab a pair of Pulsars (current edition), just let me know. Those pairs can be made during my next round of sampling.

So until next time, I’ll keep you all informed. Stay tuned!!
