Mc Luvin’

Seriously, gotta love those Texas girls for this submission!! And I know you all are waiting to see all the entrants. Kayla is working on it, but there are oodles and oodles of pics to be scanned in so it may take a week or so. I think when she said she’d love to do slide show she had no idea how many pictures we received. till she started sorting them all!!

Tomorrow, my pal Jenni and I are heading to St Louis to see my friend Michelle. She is doing a photography workshop and we can hardly wait! Though Jenni keeps trying to one up me with great gift for Michelle. But hey, I got her a case a Boone’s Farm so I so think I got the upper hand in this competition. I’ll stop and get some Cool ranch Doritos and peanut M&M’s and Jenni will have no chance. None.

And here she is….Miss Katherine from good ole’ Georgia. We are so excited to have her as part of the team for the Fall Photo-shoot but more so to meet her and her mom at 435 in June.

We were so honored to have so many beautiful and spunky girls and boys submit their photos. You are all so amazing and as sweet as one could be.ย  For all our cute faces, perfectly picked out ensembles, fascinating personalities and all the heart and soul you put into the shoots,ย  we thank you HUGE. You guys (girls and boys) brought us plenty of smiles over the past week and are a prefect representation of who we are at Matilda Jane. Thanks for shining so bright!

435 Art Fair 411

I know you are all waiting….I know and I’m trying to get the show on the road but I’ve gotta take care of a few things before I can announce a single it politics if you will!! LOL, but seriously tomorrow evening I’ll have a MJC Cover Girl.

In the mean time (it seems mean should be spelled differently in this context, doesn’t it?) I know a ton of you are waiting for more details about 435.ย  See above for schedule of events.

Friday night is so exciting because we are excited to beย  launchingย  the MJC Foundation. This is something David, the girls of 435, and I have been wanting to do but never were quite ready nor knew how to do. We love helping others and feel that through launching the MJC Foundation we will be able to reach and help more people. We can’t wait. So be sure to register with Sara at, she’ll need your address for Friday night. It’s open for anyone and everyone, we do suggest a minimum donation of 10.00 (all proceeds go to the MJC Foundation).ย  We’ll have yummy food, drinks, and even better our very own Glamour Shots, so to speak.ย  Yup, we’ve brought on some hairstylist, make up artists and a few photographers (and of course Aqua net and a huge blowing fan) to do your Glamour Shot. So fun, OMG!!!

Saturday 9-4 is the art fair and then at 7 is the Post Party at my house. Adults only and you must RSVP to Sara for this.ย  I need to be a good hostess and have enough food, drink and chairs!!!

Tina M - June 2, 2010 - 11:23 pm

Annette - June 1, 2010 - 8:41 pm

I love the new foundation! I’ve seen 1st hand how a little dress or two can make girl and her family forget their crummy year for a little bit. Amazing how you picked the perfect one for her. I hear she even sleeps in it some nights.
