Hello and  HAPPY Friday!  Wow,  I can’t believe how nervous I am, as I sit here at my little Platinum desk, trying to decide what to blog about.  This is my first blog post ever; so I guess I will start by introducing myself. It’s me, Carrie! Official title- Platinum Stock Holder. I started with MJC in January. It’s so hard to believe that I haven’t even been here a year yet. I was hired in as a packer for the seasonal lines at 435. I immediately fell in love with all things MJC. I had never seen cuter girls clothes anywhere (…having a little 3 year old girl myself, I was in heaven).  In July I moved to the Platinum team. I was nervous and excited to start a new little adventure with MJC. Platinum is so much more fast paced than the seasonal line. I love it! Everyday here is unpredictable. I never know exactly what I will be doing when I come to work. Rest assured, I always pull and pack orders first, but after that anything goes. Usually Kiara has a list for Desi and I  to complete. Sewing buttons, ironing, folding, layering, and maybe even sweeping or mopping. It never really gets dull or boring here at 433.  Platinum and 435 just seem to be getting bigger and better to me. I am amazed by all the beautiful pieces that I see coming in and going out…( I got to steam the 2012 Spring line for the photo shoots, you are going to be blown away. It is amazing!) I am so happy that you get to share in all the wonderfulness with us.  I’m so stoked about all that is going to happen from here on out!

Now just a little snippet of myself. I have two beautiful kids..(and a wonderful boyfriend, in case he reads this). Lincoln who is 6 and Paisley who is 3. They are the light of my life. Paisley is a huge MJC fan. Her eyes literally light up when she gets an MJC piece… so I know exactly the way all of you feel when your little one gets a new piece of MJC. Believe me, the look on her face is priceless. Lincoln gets some MJC too, but let’s face it, he is a boy and really just wears whatever I put him in….lol. I work here and part-time at our local movie theater. So if you ever visit Regal Coldwater Crossing in Fort Wayne; look for the girl with the Carrie name tag and say Hi!

A little pictures of my babies at 435 this year!

This is way longer than I intended, so I will stop here, but please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns about your package. Or email me if you just want to say Hi. Anything goes! It’s carrie@matildajaneclothing.com. You can also call me with our new Platinum phone number: 1-260-755-5889.

I will be blogging every other Friday with Desi, so I will see you in two weeks. Until then I will be sending out your packages with Love!

I am sure you hear this all the time, but as a momma myself, I know it never gets old. But those are two very seriously adorable munchkins!!! Thank you for sharing them. It is fun to hear how everyone loves working at MJC-I wish I lived in Ft. Wayne so I could work there too and meet you all.
