One more day…

I spent at least 2 hours last night trying to insert a video onto the blog. I am so not a computer guru as you all can tell. But hey, there is nothing wrong with keeping it simple, right? Things/life move way too fast and somehow it is way too hard to keep up that fast pace. I really want to learn how to but a video on my blog, or music (I’m laughing at myself cuz I really am clueless) but I really don’t want to take the time. There are so many things I want to do, but all will come in good time.

Right now, I’m just gonna go watch the boys and Sammi. They are hilarious. Sammi, or Samster follows them everywhere. They go upstairs, she follows, they sit on the couch, she sits, watch TV, she joins in. It is hilarious. I know you need a picture BUT she has a cold and her medicine is all over her face so she looks a bit goofy!

FYI, some of our sites will be down for about 48 hours starting on Monday, Feb 1st as we finish our server upgrades.  We will be back online on Wednesday the 3rd.  And, I’ve been getting several questions about Platinum.  Platinum is always available online to purchase.  Just go to and click on the Platinum link at the bottom or go directly to  New items will be added to Platinum periodically over the next week or two starting today.

And the best of all…..Hammond Bay, Spring 2010, will be pictured on the main website SOON.  Season officially starts Feb 15th….so look on the main website prior to that and starting using our new WISH LIST feature.

The heart ruffles are just so cute. They arrived in 3 days, and her pink dottie top will match it perfectly. Thanks Denise, I love Platinum.

Denise - February 2, 2010 - 8:45 pm

Yes 99.9% of our Platinum pieces are made right here in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Karen - February 2, 2010 - 12:20 pm

The UPS man just arrived with my valentine ruffles…I am IN LOVE!! So much cuter in person…and i LOVE that they’re made in the USA! 🙂

Shannon Willcutt - February 2, 2010 - 12:20 am

Got me a leafy knot dress and heart ruffles on the way…I am too excited about getting them!! My USPS man may get a hug or at least get to see my happy dance…as he does every time a Matilda Jane box arrives =) Cannot wait to see Hammond Bay…Matilda Jane rocks!!! I am in love…or obsessed…or both!!

Loved the new platinum! Perfect pick me up for my winter blues! So over winter…ready for spring! Can’t wait to see the entire line, getting so excited for the 15th!

training staff to have orders arrive in 2 weeks.. i hope i read that right.. that would be AMAZING! That is a huge selling point – i am hosting a show and think that would be fabulous! we are in las vegas so 2 weeks after our show would be mid march and our kiddos are ready for spring clothes! Thank you! Thank you!!

miss*jen - January 31, 2010 - 10:23 pm

oh no! no sale 🙁 bummer, but hopefully once you’re through the whirlwind that amazing new line is surely going to create we’ll get some news about another one…
btw – with everything you’ve had going on I don’t think I have yet said how much I LOVE the new blogspace!! high five! You will eventually figure the video and music thing out. The boys could probably help – computer generation kiddos that we have!

Laura – feel free to pawn those 2’s off over here – I have paypal! lol

Mary - January 31, 2010 - 8:23 pm

Sitting on the edge of my seat!!! :o)

K Squared Mommy - January 31, 2010 - 7:54 pm

We can’t wait to see Hammond Bay! 🙂

Karen - January 31, 2010 - 7:43 pm

whooo hooo! Scored me some valentine ruffles! Can’t wait to get them! 🙂

Laura Ann - January 31, 2010 - 7:14 pm

Love the new platinum stuff and can not wait to see the HB stuff, I know it is going to be so very cute and I am going to be in so much trouble.

Bummed that the sale is not going to happen, but totally understand. You have been a busy, busy lady and I am sure your team has as well.

Gives me some additional time to get by sweet girl’s closet cleaned out and get rid of those size 2’s we are growing out of (tear)!

christine - January 31, 2010 - 3:40 pm

ooooh! Can not wait!

Katie - January 31, 2010 - 3:19 pm

Ok, looking forward to Hammond Bay!! It screams spring and we are so ready for the sunshine and beautiful colors 🙂

Denise - January 31, 2010 - 2:02 pm

Yes, it is totally cancelled. With shipment of Hammond Bay coming in, new updates to the website we just don’t have time to make it happen. Right now our focus is on Hammond Bay and getting everyone trained so you can get your goods within 2 weeks.

Katie - January 31, 2010 - 12:36 pm

I know this has probably already been covered, but is the “whale of a sale” totally cancelled or just postponed? Just curious. I know you have had more important things in life to deal with, so I was just wondering. Hope life is starting to get a little bit more back to normal 🙂

WhitleyKate's mom - January 31, 2010 - 11:39 am

I think I need to get yet another job just so I can keep buying MJ! 🙂 LOVE the new platinum…have already placed an order! Can’t wait for HB!! I am a little sad that my trunk keeper is about to deliver, so I won’t be able to have a home show. 🙁 Have a fantastic weekend!

Skye, River, and Siennas mom - January 31, 2010 - 11:38 am

THANK YOU DENISE! This helps tremendously (posting Hammond Bay online Wednesday). I really appreciate it!
Here are to brighter tomorrows. Keep your head up :O)

Holly's Mama - January 31, 2010 - 11:37 am

Love the new platinum stuff! I don’t know if I will have enough money though. 🙁 My trunk show is Feb 16th so I have to save money for that. I’ll have to sell some more stuff. Hopping some Platinum is left when I have more money!

Incognito - January 31, 2010 - 11:25 am

Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eva - January 31, 2010 - 10:23 am

Hooray! Thanks for the new platinum. I got both dresses I wanted. I can’t wait to see all of HB.

Melanie H. - January 31, 2010 - 10:17 am

The upgrades to the site sound fantastic and I can’t wait to see ALL of Hammond Bay! Yippeeee! February is going to be a GREAT month! We are supposed to be moving into our new house right about the time of my MJC trunk show…I’d ask my guests to help unpack a box or two, but I know they won’t be able to take their eyes off the clothes!

Denise - January 31, 2010 - 9:52 am

I’m working on it…right now

Denise - January 31, 2010 - 9:52 am

We’ll have the Hammond Bay images up Wednesday for you!!

Skye, River, and Siennas mom - January 31, 2010 - 9:10 am

PLEASE post the new line SOON! The invitations I am handing out for my trunk show say “celebrate today by previewing the entire collection at” It would really help with trunk show attendance and save me from lots of explaining if they could just go online and see the collection as the invitation says they can.

Eva - January 31, 2010 - 7:45 am

Does this mean “One more day” until Platinum items are up or “One more day” of January? I’m confused. I don’t really want to be stalking all day if nothing new is coming today. Could you clarify, please?
