JAPAN!!!!

I’m a silly human. It doesn’t take much to impress me or make me go WOW. So you can imagine my reaction to flying BUSINESS CLASS for the first time on an international flight (I don’t know why I’m being so specific, we don’t do it on domestic flights either!). Talk about fancy. I wonder if Denise is trying to butter me up for something. I guess it doesn’t matter because butter or not, I would jump off a bridge for her. (DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?)

me

Ahhh, Japan… Where to begin? We arrived last night at 4pm and of course, one of our bags had missed the flight from Detroit to Narita. But never fear, we only had to wait about an hour for the next plane to bring it. How weird is that? How does ONE bag go missing? You have no idea how worried I was when we got to baggage claim and there’s an official looking woman with a clipboard yelling “Miss McDonald, Miss McDonald!” Ha too bad it was Denise’s bag, not mine!!

And then, after room service (THE MOST DELICIOUS HAMBURGER EVER), we hit the hay.

SO THE ADVENTURE BEGINS…. After a healthy breakfast, we got in a taxi and headed to Harajuku, a place Denise has dreamed of going for ages. I was just happy to be invited 🙂

harajuku

The place was packed and just like we imagined. A million shops with candy, barrettes, tiny toys, the funniest socks, and soooo many boutiques filled with all the cutesy-est, girliest clothes you could ever want. All the lace, embroidery, and the soft colors had our heads filled with ideas for Spring 2015. Did you know that’s why we are here in this beautiful city? For inspiration! Pinch me, I certainly cannot believe this is my life most days.

I’m so overwhelmed with emotion here. So grateful to be on this adventure with Denise. Did you guys know she’s back? Like REALLY back. She’s full of energy and being so bossy, I looooove it. I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed it. I was telling Matt Kelley the other day that I cannot wait for her to email me during the day and totally interrupt everything I’m working on and ask me to do something else. Ya, it can be totally annoying (love you Denise!) but it’s MY FAVORITE. It’s what I’m used to. I love it when she parachutes in. I think it makes me better. Better at design, better at delegating, just plain better.

FURTHERMORE. We brought our two favorite pals along for the ride too. Have you met them? This is Radar and Satellite. Clearly they’ve been enjoying themselves too…

radar

satellite

And last buuuuut not least, I know you guys are reading this to find out the winners from Denise’s blog yesterday! But guess what? No one got all three answers correct! Yes the Matilda Jane sign has moved locations, but that wasn’t the change we were talking about. So to make the contest even MORE interesting we will be giving out a $150 MJC gift card  (we upped it!!!!) to the three winners AND their most favorite piece from the February 1st launch!

LOVE,

SAM

Ps. There’s a reason google is Denise’s best friend 🙂

2. It originally had clothing right under it, but not anymore, just matilda Jane. You must have changed that fast since it seems like it was without it at art fair?
3. Tim Joe gabe

So yeahhhh I came to check around and saw the old sign pic in which I did win a contest….funny story was I posted that, it was my daughters 4th birthday and right after the party I left for art fair. I had no idea I won until I think every single person told me I won!
So maybe I will be lucky again.

Ps, my husband loves japan…he loves the eel….

Amber Vaughn - January 8, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Ok so I commented a few minutes ago but I think I can describe what I was trying to say a little better. The sign today is different because it stands for all you have accomplished since then, how much you’ve grown, how many lives you have been able to touch since your sign very first hung on 435.

sign first hung June 2009

Joe Gabe and Tim wore hats 🙂

Amber Vaughn - January 8, 2014 - 11:54 am

1. June 2009
2.I think the difference between the sign then and the sign now is the sign then represented your company in the very beginning and now it has become so much more and The feeling behind the sign stands for that

Well, I just read the old blog from beginning to end (again); google mapped; google earth-ed; bing mapped; etc. It was a great distraction for me today. I am in tears right now (happy tears) thinking about Denise’s boys. The BEST are the cute little things Denise’s boys say (having to go potty or my butt will get big and “are we busy Thursday? Well, can we go find a brother on the street?” Hilarious! Anyway, here are my answers:
1. 6/23/2009
2. Flowers have been added to the sign
3. Tim, Joe and Gabe participated in hat day
Thanks for the chance. We have a little girl that has “adopted us” who would love to own a piece of Matilda Jane! Fingers crossed.

Gabe, Joe, and Tim. I wrote David in my first post and I have no idea where that came from. I’m going to blame it on sleep deprivation from my sweet 8 week old baby girl 😉

2. I have scoured the web and found pictures from 2009 all the way to 2013… The only think I notice is that the flowers used to be so white that jane kind of blended in but now they are more opaque so that you can read jane better? This seems so minuscule not sure if it is right…. Fingers crossed!

Jackie F - January 7, 2014 - 9:00 am

Sneaky using the Ole Confessions of a Packer blog…
The sign was hung on June 23, 2009 (my sister’s birthday) and my friend, Joni won the contest.
The difference is that you removed the word, ‘clothing’ from the new sign.
The boys are Gabe, Joe, and Tim.

I’m guessing, but did the number change to 433 from 435?

1. June 23, 2009 is the date the sign was first hung.
2. The sign used to say “Matilda Jane Clothing” but now only has “Matilda Jane” on it. The “Clothing” subtitle has been removed!
3. Gabe, Joe & Tim all wore hats for hat day.

Sorry if this is a duplicate post. My iPhone crashed while trying to upload the first comment so I thought I’d try again just in case it didn’t go through! 🙂

The sign is inside at a greeting type desk with a ciollage of all of your beautiful photos from your collections and for some reason I remember seein a cute mismatch of all types and sizes of letters spelling matilda jane clothing! Fingers crissed

1. The sign was hung on June 23,2009.

2. The difference between the sign then and the sign now is that when it was first put up at 435 the sign labeled the building that held the entire MJC company. Now, since moving to the bigger building, the Matilda Jane sign at 435 remains the same, it just represents a portion of the company and that good nostalgic feeling of “where it all began.”

3. The three boys who participated in hat day were Gabe, Joe, and Tim. Joe wore the hood on his sweatshirt, not technically a hat 😉

I googled and googled and this is what I figured out :). How cute that your traveling stuffies got airplane wings!

2. The font color on the new sign matches the color of the flowers. The font was white on the old sign.

3. David, Joe, and Gabe.

I hope this is right! 🙂

AHHHHHH!! If I’m wrong, I’ll die. I literally saw this minutes after it was posted and have been on the hunt. This is one of the few times I’m grateful to have been woken up by a ready to nurse baby girl 🙂

The sign was hung on June 23, 2009.
The change is that it says Matilda Jane, no longer Matilda Jane clothing. I won’t spill on how I found it 🙂
and Gabe Joe and Tim wore hats on hat day.

Okay, I won’t die if I’m wrong because how fun was this??
