About time….

Wow….oh ya, wow. I woke up this morning, well you could say last night cuz it was about 2 and I have not stopped thinking about some great ideas. I am so fricken excited. I must admit it has been a while since I’ve seen the “light”.ย  I got up so early and am working like crazy, all fun work of course. This is great, it’s gonna be a good day minus the rain but all the more reason to sit at my computer all day!

Hey for all you unclaimed Room Numbers, we’ve got some stuff waiting for you! In the meantime let’s try 3060, 4050,1020, and 840.ย  Email sam, samm@matildajaneclothing.com a pic of your key tag, somewhere cool, that represents you and your location.

Shocking that there would be unclaimed room numbers! I would be happy to take those unclaimed prizes!!!

Katie M. - March 25, 2010 - 10:14 pm

sounds like someone got some good inspiration recently! Hope we get to hear what all your working on soon!

*Twinkle*Toes* - March 25, 2010 - 8:04 pm

Come into the light…… Can’t wait too!

Monika - March 25, 2010 - 6:51 pm

Glad to hear you woke up with inspiration!! I still feel like I’m waking up from my winter hibernation….

Denise - March 25, 2010 - 4:05 pm

Yup, we’ll post rules real soon here…i just gotta make them up!!!

Sissygirl - March 25, 2010 - 3:05 pm

Are you going to post the rules and stuff for the contest. I wasn’t around last year for it so I am clueless. Everyone seems to know what’s going on but I’m out of the loop as usual LOL.

Official rules would be fab when you can come up for air!

Kate Adcock - March 25, 2010 - 2:40 pm

I’m so sad that none of our buyers from our 3/9 trunk show got room keys ๐Ÿ™ We were all so excited to see what numbers we got ๐Ÿ™

Melanie H. - March 25, 2010 - 2:01 pm

Yay! Inspiration for you means good things in store for us!!! Have a wonderful day & now I’m off to search for that Today Show clip! Enjoy a lovely afternoon Denise & get some rest tonight!

Erin "the Pancake Makers Mom" Spencer - March 25, 2010 - 1:17 pm

OMG I just watched that today show clip and what an amazing story and fabulous little girl!!! and of coarse super cute outifts on those sisters!!!

Stephanie - March 25, 2010 - 11:37 am

I absolutely love your clothing! For some reason, this outfit (the cute little girls helps) hasn’t left my mind since I saw it! I love it! I’m liking it so much I want one for myself. One problem…..I’m 37! Have one? ๐Ÿ™‚

Amber - March 25, 2010 - 11:07 am

My daughter just pointed to that cute little girl in the picture and told me – “she’s now going to be my friend….”
I love it when inspiration hits – good luck!

tree*head - March 25, 2010 - 10:29 am

Definitely check out the Today show clip. I was watching and then I see them both wearing MJC! Cameron is such a cutie and , wow, everything that beautiful child has been through!

PS…How about posting some low numbers (like, um, 2 digit ones?)heehee…we’d love to win too ๐Ÿ˜‰

*TKJT* - March 25, 2010 - 8:52 am

Ohhhh can’t wait to hear about the “light”!

I saw that story this AM…such sweet little girls.

Emily B. - March 25, 2010 - 8:10 am

That picture is adorable! Love the hat!

Lqqkme2 - March 25, 2010 - 7:09 am

Such a sweet little girl! She is so adorable & what an amazing story!

Lqqkme2 - March 25, 2010 - 7:07 am

I saw that too! Here’s the link Denise in case you didn’t see it: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/36032483#36032483

Tia - March 25, 2010 - 6:19 am

Denise!!! I am watching the TODAY show (3/25 at 8:15 CST) and 2 little sisters being interviewed have on MJ!!! It is the story of a little girl, Cameron, who had a left hemispherectomy due to massive seiures. I am sure the video, or at least pics, will be on the website later. Cool, very, very, cool!

Erin "the Pancake Makers Mom" Spencer - March 25, 2010 - 5:49 am

What a wonderful thing it is to wake up with a great idea, love that!! So much better then waking up and having to drag yourself out of bed. Rain here also but thats ok because i finally figured out what to do for my daughters Smurf bday party…woke up with some great ideas over the weekend and they keep coming. I sware i searched the entire web for Smurf party supplies but no luck so let the craft making begin. Only the “pancake maker” would want a party theme that was popular 25 years ago…love that girl soooooo much!!!!

For those unclaimed keys….you should do some kind of virtual raffle, like just type the word raffle somewhere in your post and have a # in mind (like 1 of the #’s in the key or something) and then whoever post happens to match your # IS THE WINNER!!! just a thought!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Michelle Looney - March 25, 2010 - 5:22 am

Wow, that is EARLY! That’s the time that was supposed to be good for Einstein though. ๐Ÿ™‚

dot+3 - March 25, 2010 - 4:57 am

What a great feeling when the ideas are flowing! Maybe a rainy day nap later… Ooooh, I love those!

Isabella's Mom - March 25, 2010 - 4:48 am

Glad you’re having a great day!! Cute picture, the pretty little girl’s shoes look darling, perfect for HB!!! Good hockey weekend in FW! Miami of Ohio will be there, we talked about coming to watch. We’ll be in Detroit for the championship game, hoping they make it that far.
Take care.

Room 3637 and 284

Happy 4th Birthday Catie!!!

I had told Lynette and Kayla I was going home to watch a movie and fall asleep on the couch. While I really want that to be the truth, it’s not gonna happen. I mean seriously when was the last time you laid on the couch, watched a movie, and fell sleep in the middle of the day?

And here she is, Miss Sam, or Samster or Samuri or just plain ole’ Sammi. Now you all know our very own Sam at 435 has been gone for over a week visiting her super cute boy in CA? Oh, tomorrow would be a real good day for her to come home. We miss her and there’s lots of cuttiing for 435 to do. And I want to show you the pics from the winning keys tags, and even more important to you winners, she most likely has a box full of emails to send gifts too!!

And there is a little pic of my house. I hate to say it but 5650 is much like me, not too photogenic.ย  You’ll just have to wait till 435 to see in real life.

Well, today is Monday and every other Monday we have a lunch at 435 so I must get going and pick it up!ย  Now go take a nap!

mom2P&B - March 24, 2010 - 8:46 pm

Post more pics of your house!! Love the mirror pic. You taking pics of your space reminds me of a friend who just took pics of her newly renovated photog space. You should check it out, very cool they way she had it done, and how she photographed it! http://www.studio6-23.com/blog/2010/random/hello-6-23-studio

Also, would love to come to the party! I am wondering if there is any chance you get block off more rooms? They are all booked!! Thanks so much!!

Sara - March 24, 2010 - 6:07 am

You have a beautiful new home and darling sweet kitty! Love the perspective using the mirror.

sundee - March 23, 2010 - 7:50 pm

Oh my goodness, Denise. Your home is amazing! Like straight out of a magazine!! Congratulations. I am so happy for you and your family.

Brandie - March 23, 2010 - 7:43 am

Great taste Denise! I wouldn’t expect any less! Your home is just like you; FANTASTIC in every way and so full of many treasure! Can we house swap and you decorate my house for me???LOL

Darlene Burchfield - March 22, 2010 - 10:03 pm

Very Pretty…The cat and the house! Congrats!

broke_mom_to_4_girls - March 22, 2010 - 8:01 pm

LOVE LOVE LOVE your house!!! Well, at least the little I can see ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would give my right arm, well, maybe my right thumb, for that many windows in my entire house, let alone in my living area alone!!

*TKJT* - March 22, 2010 - 7:30 pm

WOW! Gorgeous house! Just share…don’t be afraid! ya know…not all of us get to go to 435 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lisa M - March 22, 2010 - 6:25 pm

christine - March 22, 2010 - 4:20 pm

Look at that fabulous home! Beautiful. ahhhhh to go home and chill on the couch with no distractions. I think the next time that will happen will be when I retire. When is it that they keep telling me? 2030????? almost there:)

rachel the assessor.... - March 22, 2010 - 3:47 pm

love the house. it’s fabulous.

FourCinapod - March 22, 2010 - 1:35 pm

Ha! I had to laugh at all of Sammie’s names. We have a dog named Dixie and she has about four other names also:) Let’s see we call her Dixie, Dixiemomma, Gigi, and Didi. WOW! Your house is absolutely amazing!!! So beautiful and so CLEAN!!! Have a great day.

Melanie H. - March 22, 2010 - 11:45 am

What a FANTASTIC house! How did you just move in & it looks so amazing??!!! I hope you still have boxes or clutter hidden somewhere, ha! Seriously, it is a gorgeous house & furnished beautifully! But I would expect nothing less!

Beautifulclothing - March 22, 2010 - 10:08 am

I am so glad that I got to see Samster the cat. So cute! I would love to fall asleep on the couch with Sam purring next to me. Your house is beautiful. It looks so elegant and clean. Can’t wait to hear more about the contest this week. Enjoy your lunch at 435! I would love to work with you all. I live to far away. ;-(

Katie M. - March 22, 2010 - 9:21 am

Sammi is too cute- looks very sofy and sweet! Love the painting over the couch (from what I can see of it anyhow) and I spy another of the red/white striped lamps we saw a few days ago- I really love that! Okay- you have insipired me to go hit a few stores today to look at pillows and lamps- we need something cool in our house- besides Mollys closet of MJ. HAve a great Monday- hope its as sunny and gorgeous out there as it is here in San Diego!

saoirse's mom - March 22, 2010 - 9:03 am

sammi is adorable! love her markings! and your house?!?! please come decorate mine! love your couch and the pops of red all over!

Monika - March 22, 2010 - 8:55 am

Awwww, Sammi looks so fluffy and adorable!!! And I think you’re wrong, 5650 is very photogenic… just like you! And looky at all your flowers!!!! Pretty!

kaitlyn - March 22, 2010 - 8:43 am

Wow–great space! Love the mirror!

Incognito - March 22, 2010 - 8:32 am

What a beautiful picture of Sammi… and THAT room!!! OMG, It’s BEAUTIFUL!! I know you must be very proud ๐Ÿ™‚ Have to say, I’m very envious of the lighting over you kitchen table and that gorgeous green mirror… oh, and I love the bold red striped lamp!


I am proud to say I think I have graduated from the Beginner level to Easy. Yup, I have pretty much mastered the singing on Rock Band. And I am quite proud of myself. Joe says I am good. Gabe and David, well they just give me strange looks.

So let’s chat about 435.ย  We are just starting to put the details together but for those of you who needs to plan ahead, the quick lowdown is, Preview Party is Friday, June 25 from 6-9. Kids are welcomed. The art fair will be Saturday, June 26 from 9-4.ย  Saturday night from 6-? we will have a get together at my house, adults only.ย  Yes, these are pretty vague but hey, you got the dates and the times…details to come soon.

Now let’s chat about who’s gonna win the trip for 2 to 435. I’ve racked my brain on this, trying to come up with a great contest idea and I keep coming back to the same as last year. Why change a good thing, huh?ย  We will start taking submissions via mail (not email) on what Matilda Jane Clothing is to you. It is quite vague (my word of the day) but it really can be anything.ย  The contest will run April 15-30. I will post more details this week.

Okay, I know I said I would post pics of my house…but I feel dumb about it. What happens if I think it is super cool and you think I suck?ย  I’m so dumb that way. I need to build up the courage then I will…maybe!

Until later..have a a great Sunday. My boys are upstairs singing away, David went for a run and me? Well, I think I’m gonna go do some laundry and try to find an excuse to go to Target!

Heather G. - March 24, 2010 - 10:07 pm

jami - March 22, 2010 - 9:09 am

Oh, I am so there. When I first read this, I thought it was THIS Thursday and I was already on Delta looking for flights. Decided to confirm and realized the parties in June. WOOHOO!!! Plenty of time to plan. CAN’T WAIT!!!

Yes – Liberty of London – perfect reason to go to Target…and photos of the house – we know you have incredible style!!

Rachel - March 21, 2010 - 8:53 pm

here is your reason to go to Target. SUPER cute womens clothes as well as several other super cute items by Larrys or Lloyds or Someone of London. I can’t think of who it is but you will know it when you see it. Adorable rain boots too.

Emma's*Mommy - March 21, 2010 - 7:46 pm

Just wanted to say that I got my “first installment” of Hammond Bay last week and your mission statement totally summed it up…it just makes me HAPPY!!!…and my daughter loves it because it is soo comfortable.
Also, I can’t imagine why you would ever feel nervous able what anyone here thinks about your new house. Everyone on this site obviously loves your taste and style or we wouldn’t be here…I’m sure we will all just be envious when you decide to show off your new home.

RachelR - March 21, 2010 - 7:17 pm

Awwww, look at little miss Londyn!!! She is just the cutest little thing! Now Denise….post the pics of your house already!!! It’s cool, your cool….now, pics please!!
