Hope for Habitat

WOW!!!! The moment everyone was waiting for. I hope the wait was worth it. Serendipity is AMAZING and I am excited to see what everyone’s favorites are.  I know you have read over and over that Serendipity is 435’s favorite Collection to date. I think I am going to jump on the band wagon as well and say the same. I just don’t see how those girls can beat this collection come Fall. Maybe because every time I see the light teal/blue and red I am reminded of my house and all the work I did last summer. I bought my first house a year ago this past October and last summer decided to give it a make-over. After weeks of deciding on colors I decided on this. How ironic that Serendipity happened to be almost the same exact color scheme.

However, today’s post is about something I am even more excited about. I feel like a little school girl when the “Habitat” subject comes up. I have so much love for them and the things they do and feel so honored to be organizing some events in order to reach our goal of $30,000. Last Year, with all of your help, we were able to raise nearly $13,000.  That is OUTSTANDING and we are so grateful. We could not have done it without all of your support and I know this year will be even more successful.  All of these donations went to building the home for Trinell and her three children. She is so sweet and appreciative and on top of that one of the hardest workers on the job site. We are all excited to meet the recipient of this years Women Build I am sure she is just the same. Below is Trinell and her children on the day of her dedication. I can only imagine what that day meant to her.

This year we will be hosting an online auction  in March and trust me you will not want to miss it. There are so many cute items from different vendors that will be available. I won’t spoil it for you today,  but I can say that there is a wide range of items that are all AMAZING. Thank you to those of you who have donated items so far.  Your generosity is heart warming. Which brings me to my next subject.

We are also hoping to gather about 50 photographers who are willing to donate a session to go up for auction in March. In return, Matilda Jane may include your contact info in our first Matilda Jane Clothing Publication that will be mailed out in April to roughly 50,000-100,000 people. If you are interested please email me (Kayla) at matildajaneinfo@yahoo.com with your website. (Spaces will be limited due to the space available in the publication and not every photographer will be selected for the publication.  Photographers chosen to be included in the feature will be hand-selected by MJC….more details to come.)

On top of those big announcements, Matilda Jane will also be co-sponsoring the annual Habitat Tea in April. This luncheon is their main source of funds for the Women’s Build in September and has been very successful so far. If you are in the area, we would love for you to join us. In order to attend the event, Habitat requires a $2,500 donation which includes 5 volunteer spots come September, and a table of 8 at the Tea. This year the Tea is April 21st at 2pm EST. I attended it last year and it was a blast. Children are welcome and each year they have a theme they run with. This year the theme has not been sent but with Denise’s brain behind some of the ideas you know it will be nothing short of cute. If this is something you are interested in as a company, family or friends you can contact me also and I can get you that information. We hope to see some of you there.

There will be some more details to come at a later day, I just couldn’t hold back the details that I know as of today. Told you I was excited.

Lastly, I haven’t done a give-a-way in awhile and after the conversation Lynette just had with Kiara we thought today would be the perfect time. This one will be hard so the winner will win Lynette’s two Favorite pieces from Serendipity.

What is Lynette’s one obsession/hobby she partakes in every year?

XOXO

Kayla

yoga_lat_te - February 2, 2012 - 11:39 am

I hope I’m not too late …: is it that she travels every year … to Europe/France/Paris …?
By the way, my daughter and I are l-o-v-i-n-g Serendipity! Completely my personal opinion, but it has kind of a “vintage (using the word very loosely) MJ” feel to it. Thank you again, ladies, for all your hard work; we love you all!

Sara Burke - February 2, 2012 - 11:20 am

Kari Bennett - February 2, 2012 - 8:35 am

I struggled to find the answer to this one, but I am going to say TRAVEL. That girl loves Paris. She has gone to China. Las Vegas. The Florida trip. I think I need to be Lynette!!

Donnie K - February 2, 2012 - 8:10 am

OK, not sure how this works, it’s my wife’s thing. But I trie to post a comment and it’s not showing up so I’m trying again..

I’m hoping her obsession is the same as my wife’s and it’s coming up with the perfect Valentine’s day gift! She’s obsessed with the holiday!

Donnie K - February 2, 2012 - 8:06 am

I’m hoping it’s coming up with the best gift for Valentine’s Day!! That’s my wife’s one big obsession every year! Just thought it might be yours, too!!!

Joann E - February 2, 2012 - 8:05 am

***She is part of something spectacular on Groundhog’s Day!!!

I would guess, Lynette’s hobby/obsession is watching or partaking in horse races.

Amber Vaughn - February 2, 2012 - 7:55 am

Is it Art Fair? If that’s not it maybe it has something to do with growing vegetables or..wine:)

Tish T-B - February 2, 2012 - 7:41 am

I don’t know what Lynette’s obsession/hobby is, but I just read an old blog when Denise posted some pictures of Lynette’s daughter, Kylee, and it made me smile because I have a Kylee! I don’t know why I’m sharing, but it made me excited because I’ve only seen her name spelled that way for one other person. Anywho…I should get back to work and quit trying to win a blog give-a-way!!!! Have a wonderful day 🙂 ~ Tish

AND, a complete guess, Lynette attends an opening day baseball game every year!

Not many creative ideas this morning but maybe Lynette makes certain foods for Christmas or for family birthdays or maybe she makes certain ornaments for the tree each year or maybe she celebrates Groundhog Day.

Jess Mease - February 2, 2012 - 7:00 am

I just met Lynette a few weeks ago- I know that she is a very talented cook- so maybe it is something to do with her obsession/hobby of cooking. Thanks for all the pretties to look at today, my 17 year old had knee surgery today and she had a bad reaction and alot of pain- we are finally home- it was nice to keep my mind busy with all the beauty of serendipity!! Can’t wait to get my order and I can’t wait to order from the boy’s line too. Pamela

Cynthia Rutherford - February 1, 2012 - 6:41 pm

Such positive and great news all around. Shared this with a few photographer friends. As for the give a way, I have no idea so I will choose my once a year hobby of planting my garden 🙂

Ashley Evans - February 1, 2012 - 6:39 pm

Ice skating? It’s what my little one is obsessed with now. Well, she’s actually obsessed with playing ice hockey (who knew) but she needs to learn to skate first. Love 5 years olds!

LMC123 - February 1, 2012 - 6:39 pm

Or maybe she likes to make bets with her family whether or not Mr. Groundhog will see his shadow. 🙂

Kim T - February 1, 2012 - 6:36 pm

Lynette’s one obsession/hobby she partakes in every year is going on a weekend yoga retreat.

Mandy - February 1, 2012 - 6:08 pm

Stephanie O'Connor - February 1, 2012 - 5:52 pm

I rarely pick an adult item as one of my favorites but the CUPCAKE TANK DRESS, is amazing sadly it wont be on my wishlist because my two girls always come first. My other fav is the SUGAR & SPICE LAP DRESS, how you manage to create a piece that is vintage, timeless and o so sweet.

I am in awe of your generosity and talent. “Wearable Love”, couldn’t have said it better!

Jamie Hicks - February 1, 2012 - 5:48 pm

Alyssa p - February 1, 2012 - 5:40 pm

Ok, if it only happens once a year I am going to guess it is either some type of race or something art based like a scrapbooking conference..all a guess! But since I have been entering these since the 25 days of Christmas, I am so hoping to finally win one!

Elizabeth Hummel - February 1, 2012 - 5:37 pm

Debbie Gorlewski - February 1, 2012 - 5:13 pm

I really wish I knew what Lynette’s hobby/obsession is because MJC is one of mine! 🙂 So, I will just guess and say either she likes running and runs a marathon every year or she likes horses and goes to the Kentucky Derby? I know, long shots.
