I have been at Matilda Jane for fourteen months now and loving every crazy minute of it! I worked with Becky in the return/exchange department for my first year and in February I was recruited to be a platinum girl! I must say it was a very big change for me. While I loved processing exchanges and talking to customers all day, I thought it would be fun to try something new.  I love the idea of coming to work and not knowing what the day has in store for me. One day I could be sewing buttons and ironing, the next day I am printing, pulling, and packing orders. I actually didn’t know how to sew on a button until last Art Fair.. embarrassing right? I have already learned so many new things and I have only been in Platinum for two months! I did my first upload today and I was so nervous (I hope I did ok). I do miss working with my partner in crime Becky, but I have made lots of new friends in Platinum.

It is kind of scary how close we have gotten in just a short amount of time, I think its our shared love for Pitch Perfect and cats.. oh wait, that’s just me. Sorry this wasn’t more exciting, but it was my first time blogging after all! I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Until next time–

You did a great job with your first upload but how about you give it another try with some more bags 🙂

There is hope for me … I can barely sew a button on … which is why my fam busts on my love of MJ buttons! My dream job – being in charge of buttons at MJC!! You did a fine first time blog! After Sam and Denise blog, I have to rest or giggle … or both! Or want to give D a hug when she beats herself up! Kiki & Kayla are such good souls and we’re gonna find some nugget about Africa – like looking inside their hearts! And. Carrie … hmmm … more insightful … maybe something about her kids that I enjoy. Who else blogs? Losing steam here – happy week-end! Oh, I know! You have to tell us who you love or what you love!

AW MAN! You loaded Plat and there was hardly anything to catch.. bummer. 🙁 Either that or in the time I blinked there was something. Dang the need to blink! HA. HA. Love Bug dress is adorable but from the picture you have on the blog you can’t see there are bugs on it.. not a good picture. I am impressed the lady who named the dress could see that there were bugs on there. Congratulations! Enjoy.

RSVP by May One

We are on the road to firming things up for Art Fair.  And Pre-Parties are at the top of the to-do list around here…

If you have not purchased your tickets for the Pre-Party and would like to come, please do so now. We’ll close ticket sales on May One. When you are buying a ticket for your child, it is important to note if it is for a boy or a girl. We’ve got lots of planning to do, lots of fun stuff to get, and we want to be sure every child is accounted for.  Sorry to sound like a nag. I don’t want to leave anyone out, and it is important to know that every person, whether baby or adult MUST have a ticket for the Pre-Party

So,  if you have not purchased your tickets for the Pre-Party and would like to go, please head over to Brown Paper Tickets and you can get it all taken care of.   I haven’t asked Becky for an update but I think we have about 100 tickets or so left for the Pre-Party. No tickets are needed for the actual art fair.

And you gotta know, June 28 is our Birthday (David and Mine). Yup, that means it is going to be an extra grand party.

So excited! If we purchased tickets the day they went on sale, when should we expect them in the mail?

I am getting oh so very excited to attend my very first Art Fair. Words can’t quite grasp how much I’m looking forward to it. Yay! Can’t wait to hear more!
