Friday Frenzy……

What a crazy Friday this has been! I’m pretty sure that this is just how it is going to be in the upcoming month. Art Fair is rapidly approaching! Can you believe it? How exciting right?  We have been so busy buttoning, ironing, and hanging . We’ve also starting organizing items for the move. It’s crazy, having two huge projects looming before you.

Denise and Sam are headed to Michigan for a fall photo shoot, Lauren is working on Platinum items for the Platinum Pass, Desi is organizing Good Luck Trunk for the move, and I’m doing customer service for Platinum and TGO.  That is why this is going to be short and sweet, but I did want to Blog and say Hi from 435 and 433!

So Hi! I hope all of you are having as nice of weather as we are here today. 83 and sunny! We have the Platinum doors propped open, letting the sun shine in!

I forgot to mention how excited I am to have the girls back from Africa on Monday. It has been really strange around here without Kiara. I wish them safe travels as they  should already be making their way home.

As celebration for them coming home, how about a Platinum Giveaway!

I will pick one random winner on Monday to score a Platinum  pretty. Just leave me a comment!

Ever since one of my great friends Chrissy Liberati became a trunk keeper, my daughter Mary and I have been hooked! She is a wonderful little six year old and when I put her in her Matilda Jane clothes I notice a spring in her step. I love the clothes and the sense of confidence I see in my little girl when she wears them. Thanks Chrissy for introducing me to these great clothes and always keeping me up to date with all of the new ones that come out. You rock!! As my daughter says and I quote “Matilda Jane cuteness!”

Maryann E. - May 19, 2012 - 5:50 pm

After planting flowers all day, I am “relaxing” on the computer. I thought I was busy until I read your blog! I am a grandma and am enjoying buying my granddaughter Lula the most beautiful pieces from Matilda Jane. I had two boys, so I am really enjoying it! Flowers, ruffles, lace–can’t get enough! Keep the creativity coming!!
And enjoy your welcome home party!!!

Jennifer Vail - May 19, 2012 - 4:23 pm

Michelle M. - May 19, 2012 - 2:33 pm

I never been so excited about shopping, and that’s how I feel about your clothing. I see how much planning and dedication goes into each design to make it very unique. Just like every person that works for MJ is so special to you, it is very special every piece we buy. We become attach to those memories behind every piece a child’s wear. And you become attached to every person that contributes to the image and success of your company.

Lori - May 19, 2012 - 2:17 pm

Becky P - May 19, 2012 - 2:03 pm

Exciting stuff happening! Strange question (maybe)… is there someone in charge of putting all the pretty things inside the mesh bags? I mean that seems like a huge task!

Melanie H. - May 19, 2012 - 1:23 pm

I sure wish I could jump right into that photo, Mary Poppins-style…it looks like such a cheery, happy place to be! I’d love to be a little worker bee helping to get those racks filled for Art Fair! Have a beautiful weekend!

Kelly - May 18, 2012 - 7:46 pm

I hope you all find some downtime this weekend. My daughter is recovering from a tonsilectomy and just felt well enough to try on our first ever piece of Platinum that I was so excited to get at the beginning of May (and the perfect size too!). Even though she’s been more subdued and has been laying around the house, all she wanted to do is twirl! It was great to see her grin from ear to ear again. This dress was made for her! If she’d hold still I’d take a pic. Thanks for putting a smile on her face!

Angela C - May 18, 2012 - 7:35 pm

I *dream* about Art Fair! Maybe someday my girls and I will make a road trip. Enjoy the prep!

Leigh Ann - May 18, 2012 - 7:22 pm

Hi Carrie – Great photo! I love that some of the bags have the fabric with the telephones on them…that fabric rocks! Enjoy your weekend with your family. 🙂

We love your clothing line!! Can’t wait to see what you have come up with for the next collection 🙂

Erin - May 18, 2012 - 5:02 pm

I am exhausted just THINKING about all you ladies are trying to accomplish in a short period of time. I envy your work environment so much, though. Just being surrounded by beautiful fabrics and beautiful friends all day must be the best job in the world.

You girls sure are busy! All your hard work pays off through amazing clothing that I can’t get enough of. 🙂

I hope everyone has safe travels!! Have a great weekend Matilda Jane gals!

Okay I’ll be honest. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Matilda Jane. I was browsing through the internet (specifically ebay) and I saw one of your dresses being sold there. So I immediately googled your site and VOILA! I saw your dresses and clothing line and I was like WOW! These would be perfect for my 4 year old girl who loves dressing up. She tells me everyday she’s a princess and loves to wear dresses. Your dresses are perfect and unique and she’ll totally love it. I’ll show it to my hubby later. 🙂 Keep up the good job and keep the unique and fun and pretty dresses you’re making. 🙂

Love the Just for Janes items. What a wonderful idea! Thank you.

Platinum Pretty! 🙂 Oh how I just love those pieces! Our funds are low so we are not able to get much if any. I have ordered one piece from platinum and that was several years ago. I just love how special my little girl feels when she wears Matilda Jane. She feels beautiful! I love the uniqueness! Welcome home girls! I bet it was an experience to remember. It has been so nice here with the weather sunny and warm so we have been enjoying it! Welcome Summer! Have a great weekend Carrie and MJ crew!

Hi Carrie, I live in Indiana too so I think we Hoosiers REALLY appreciate beautiful weather in Spring! I’m sitting in my office and while I should be working (does anything really get done after 4:00 on a Friday?)I’m actually enjoying the sunshine and the breeze coming through the windows (and of course browsing I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Tammy D - May 18, 2012 - 2:01 pm

Pick me!! Please 🙂 I could use a spot of sunshine on a cloudy day.

Nicole K. - May 18, 2012 - 1:26 pm

So excited to hear all about their travels and see their beautiful pictures-only they will know how truly amazing Africa was to them…but their love and kindness to Africa shared with others will hopefully promote others to travel to such an amazing Country.
Since going to Africa, I think of it every day. 🙂
