Good Saturday Morning MJC Folk

Got up at 7amΒ  sharp, dressed, kids up, dressed, laundry started, house cleaned and now we are off to pick up Sophie, Claudia, Abi and Jessica in Michigan. They are coming down to hang with us forΒ  a few days. And if they are lucky, real lucky, I’ll let them help fold shipping boxes!!! David is staying to ship, you should see the massive pile. I’ll try to stop in and take a pic. I’ve got huge goals of shipping out all sale orders FAST… Huge, but I know my girls and I know they can do it.

new2MJC - July 16, 2010 - 12:19 pm

I’ve actually lost count of my orders! I’ve been keeping up with things on FB and I just want to say that I have not received any order conf or shipment conf on any orders – but guess what – I don’t care! After opening my first ever MJ box this week I’m in heaven and I think it’s kinda fun not knowing exactly when every single thing is going to happen! I’ve had a blast checking the website every chance I get and inviting friends over to see my wonderful discovery! I should video the oohs and ahhs for you! I live in a small town and the MJ craze I am helping create here, may or may not be good for the economy!

Thanks so much! I have finally quenched my girl clothes thirst with Matida Jane. I felt like I was great at shopping for my boys and that was hard enough but when I found out the 3rd was a girl I began my search for the most adorable clothes for her and was quite discouraged until now.

Natalie - July 14, 2010 - 10:44 am

I never did tell you thanks for the sale. So THANK YOU! I can’t wait to get the fun things I never would have gotten without the sale. With two girls and myself, things add up pretty quickly, so it makes it so nice to be able to take advantage of the sale. Thank you so much!

Torie West - July 12, 2010 - 6:27 pm

Oh no….I’m going to be in so much trouble this fall by the looks of the new MJ line. I will try to convince my husband I have a 40% credit from the last sale so I should be able to roll that 40% credit I saved into the fall line purchase, hope he goes for it! Keep you posted πŸ™‚

Rachael - July 12, 2010 - 9:30 am

Okay these sneak peeks just made my fall budget grow bigger! Denise why don’t I just send you my retirement fund?

DeAnna - July 11, 2010 - 11:17 pm

These sneak peeks are like watching a t.v. series – can’t wait to see what comes next…! And, like everyone keeps saying, those girls are beyond adorable! Your clothes, photos, settings – they’re so inspiring! They just make me feel happy =)

Jill - July 11, 2010 - 8:16 pm

Those are SUCH cute little girls! loving the peasant with the rabbit trim…

mimi - July 11, 2010 - 11:17 am

Those are the cutest little girls…double the cuteness in MJ. So pretty. Has anyone seen any art fair joey bags on Platinum? I keep looking, hoping to get one, like I need to buy one more thing this week!:)

smalltownjenny - July 11, 2010 - 10:28 am

Mary Kay - July 10, 2010 - 7:16 pm

I was not lucky enough to purchase any art fair items – so I made up for it by purchasing my share of the sale items– who doesn’t love a great sale? And I just tell my husband it is important that I do my share in stimulating the economy!! Yesterday I had a van load of kids (my three plus four nieces & nephews)we spent the day at the pool– it was a great time for all the cousins to play. I love having nieces & nephews come & stay at our house….Enjoy the fun times!

MJC fan - July 10, 2010 - 6:54 pm

Heard that more art fair stuff would be up on Monday…..

Cariann - July 10, 2010 - 5:49 pm

Thanks for the sale, quick ship and all the rest!

Amy - July 10, 2010 - 2:27 pm

Holly's Mama - July 10, 2010 - 12:32 pm

Thanks for the sneak peaks of the Fall line. Are you going to put up more Platinum 435 Art Fair stuff? I would like to have a chance to buy some. I was busy the other day when you put some up so I couldn’t stalk the Platinum site πŸ™ This California girl is hoping for a chance to get some 435 stuff!

Tara A, from MI - July 10, 2010 - 11:58 am

Hi, so glad to hear that the sale items are being shipped super fast! I cross my fingers hope that mine is shipping soon too. Of course I bought the Cleo dress to wear to an out of state convention on the 20th, why do I do this to myself!
Can you please tell me if we will receive an e-mail when our order ships? or is it just a big giant surprise? Thanks!

lockr (Ramona) - July 10, 2010 - 11:33 am

Erin "the Pancake Makers Mom" Spencer - July 10, 2010 - 5:05 am

OHHHH, pics of Field Trip!!!! More please!!!!!!

Isabella's Mommy - July 10, 2010 - 5:03 am

Aren’t you chipper, this morning? Oooh, have fun, drive safely and enjoy the weather.
Love this shot of the beautiful girls. They were a delight at 435, such darling souls, you can see that in this image.
Take care.

A little secret…

Many of you have already noticed this, but because the shipping for the sale is a flat $2, it turns out that Platinum shipping is by default the same. Our system doesn’t allow us to specify different shipping rates for the main website and the Platinum website. So even though Platinum is not 40% off, you can order whatever you’d like for just $2 shipping to the lower 48.

mom2curls - July 9, 2010 - 4:39 pm

Just got our artfair/platinum package…I am in HEAVEN!! Everything is so beautiful and perfect and smells good too!! So if the tag has a “D” on the back, does that mean that is was personally made by you, Denise? Thanks again for all your hard work and everything that you do!! MJC is the BEST!!!

Donna W - July 9, 2010 - 2:35 pm

A Huge Thank You to Denise and the MJC crew for the awesome sale! My little Ava has a ton of new items for ” Twirling” !! Also a huge Thank You to Rebecca S. my trunk keeper who helped me through it!! Can’t wait to see the entire fall line I am sure to fall in love with it like all the others πŸ™‚ LOVE MJC!!

mimi - July 9, 2010 - 2:25 pm

Oh my, we received our first shipment today from the art fair items this past weekend. The Pale Pink Knot, and Megan Knot dresses are just beautiful! Thank you so much for offering all those great leftovers!!!

Janella - July 9, 2010 - 7:17 am

Denise, I just wanted to say YES you are successful in making a little girl smile from ear to ear. My daughter Alistar dances around in her Circus Ellie,it is now her favorite! Thanks so much for all you do! The Art Fair pieces were lovely and the Whale of a SALE Wow!! I can’t wait to see the fall pieces, I’m a Hippy at heart!

mimi - July 8, 2010 - 7:38 pm

Wow, I can’t believe I’ve already gotten tracking numbers for my art fair items that we purchased this weekend! Thanks to everyone for working so hard for us! Very excited to see all the lovely knot dresses, and tops. The art fair items are my favorites.

Breianna - July 8, 2010 - 7:06 pm

It’s too bad that your loyal fans in Canada are getting crappy shipping prices though. I know it kept me from ordering.

gran - July 8, 2010 - 6:02 pm

Dear new2MJC, you and your mom are in for many wonderfully designed clothes for your little one. So happy for you that you found it. I didn’t find them until my MJC granddaughter was 3 years old but we have sure had a great 3 years and her Pop loves taking her out in her MJC clothes and having folks ask where did she get those clothes????? Have fun shopping.

MJC fan - July 8, 2010 - 5:53 pm

Does anyone have the underarm measurements for the eva rose knot dress in a size 6 or a size 8?

new2MJC - July 8, 2010 - 1:19 pm

I am so grateful to this awesome sale and even more so to the creator of these clothes! I stumbled across this company and I am amazed! I have only dreamed of such adorable clothes for my little girl! My mother and I spent hours at the computer yesterday and today – my life has literally been on hold. I ordered as much as I could possibly afford and I can not wait to get them! I even signed up for a trunk show this fall!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

K Squared Mommy - July 8, 2010 - 7:02 am

Thanks Amanda…and MJC! I just got a Red Head Pearl for my daughter. πŸ™‚

gran - July 8, 2010 - 6:59 am

Thank you David for cleaning up. Creative genes and cleaning up genes are often not in the same mix.

Cara Zumach - July 8, 2010 - 6:59 am

Completely & utterly fantastic, thank you!

mom2curls - July 8, 2010 - 6:57 am


Amanda D - July 8, 2010 - 6:23 am

Jane Exclusives are now up for sale too!

Hey Folks, some are having success but not all. We are going to do a quick RAM upgrade. Please take a snapshot of your cart because you may lose it. Once the upgrade is done, add your items back in and hopefully you will notice that things are better! Site will be down temporarily during this process.

shannen - July 8, 2010 - 1:10 pm

Thank you it was all worth the wait. I thought my old timer computer had played a not so nice trick on me. The down time gave me time to get something done around my busy house and when I when checked back after dinner I got a sweet gift(shopping). Sorry you had such a crazy day.

Deanna - July 8, 2010 - 12:59 am

β™₯ Such things come with great success… Technology is always great when it works perfectly, but when it doesn’t work, (especially computer systems) it can be very frustrating. The majority of people were most likely just venting their frustrations on FB, but those who vowed to never come back… well, that leaves more for the rest of us =) β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯ Really, really good sales always seem to result in a “feeding frenzy” (look at “Confessions of a Shopaholic”. But, at least we didn’t have to wait in the cold for hours or wrestle items away from each other (do people really do that?). Besides, our society is sooo dependent on technology as a whole, that when it takes more than a couple of seconds for a page to load on the web, we are cursing how slow it is. Oh well, there is soooo much more to life β™₯ Thanks, MJ for the awesome sale and low shipping – I didn’t feel so bad having to go back a couple times β™₯ I have officially survived a MJC sale!

Shannon Willcutt - July 7, 2010 - 10:45 pm

MJC rocks! The sale rocks, the clothes rock…everything about it rocks! I can’t wait to get my package in the mail…I love, love, love seeing my UPS man drive up in my driveway…he even knows my Matilda Jane packages are special =) Don’t you for a minute feel bad about us having to wait today…learning a little patience never hurt anybody!!

MJMom - July 7, 2010 - 6:47 pm

I waited 3 hrs this afternoon and lost all of the items in my bag. I just went on again and everything was still there and it was such a smooth process. Thanks for your dedication to providing the best items and working through all of the bumps in the road! How amazing to have an Oprah Effect!

Farrar Lindner - July 7, 2010 - 5:11 pm

THANK YOU! I waited patiently, lost a few items and gained a few in the process! Thanks for the sale and don’t let the nay-ayers get you down!

mom2curls - July 7, 2010 - 2:28 pm

Thanks so much again for such a great sale!!! It was well worth the wait. And yes, it took me 5 whole hours of stalking MJC today, and reading some nasty fb posts but I think it goes to show you what a great group of devoted followers you have!!! Now I will be stalking the UPS man for the next month!!!

kimberly - July 7, 2010 - 2:24 pm

wow…..five hours later and YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you thank you!!!!!

AC's Mom - July 7, 2010 - 2:09 pm

Keep trying it finally works!!!! All the frustration is worth getting to the finish line!!!!!

mimi - July 7, 2010 - 1:59 pm

Oh my goodness, I feel like I’ve won the lottery, Denise:) Got my brown willows!!! Thank you for all the hard work.

MJC fan - July 7, 2010 - 1:57 pm

It was worth my wait – my daughter said that she had to have that “’tilda ma’jane” maggie stew dress!!!! It kept coming and going and we got it!!!!!!

Natalie - July 7, 2010 - 1:49 pm

Thanks! It’s all worth the wait, right? πŸ™‚

MJC fan - July 7, 2010 - 1:46 pm

It took me three and a half hours to get my first order through and about 10 minutes to get my second order through! Something popped back up that was gone when I placed the first order – SO KEEP CHECKING!!! It was well worth the wait to have my daughter so excited to get the pieces she wanted!! I noticed that if I got thrown off – it kept the items in my cart – it was when I restarted it that I would lose items – be patient! It will work! Thanks Denise!!!!!

Holly's Mama - July 7, 2010 - 1:30 pm

Thanks for working so hard to give us a sale!
