Three things

1. I strongly encourage you all to get a bike this weekend. There is nothing better than a friend calling in the middle of the day to meet up and ride to the local ice cream shop. No kids, just you and a friend in the middel of the day. You’ll feel like you are 14. It is a must! You can thank me later.

2. Lots of big things happening. The fundraiser for Joe and Christy is this weekend. And for those of you who would like to call in an order we’ll take orders in the office tomorrow (Friday) ONLY. A lot of you have asked if it applies to all collections and yup, it sure does.

Also, be sure to get your Mom’s Day nominations in this weekend. Just send it over to Sam,

3. You can keep guessing away cuz no one has guessed it!!! Oh, but man,I love reading the comments much better than a novel any day!

And that’s about it. Joe has a baseball game today and I must say, he’s getting pretty decent.  He’s hitting the ball and actually catching. He plays catcher usually half the game. It’s so cool to watch how he is so blind to the idea that…can’t think of the word.  But he kneels down, never backs away from the ball or bat and just does a great job. He has totally mastered catching with his left hand, quickly taking off his glove to throw the ball back with his left hand. It’s pretty cool to watch. I always forget that many of you don’t know all the wonders of Joe, so here’s a link to my Brave One.  He’s pretty cool. OH, and he has finally mastered his bike. Okay, I am exaggerating a bit, but he’s, I’d say, 90% there and that to me is totally 110%.
Oh and even super cooler we saw Julie, his old OT, the other day on the way to his baseball game. I was telling her how I signed him up to get CMIT In Birmingham.. So excited about that..anyways she asked him what he would like to do that he can’t. His reply ” Give a handshake”.  Love it, and yes, he can shake hands but everyone goes for the right hand it  screws it up for him…

15 minutes later..WOW…I really need to take some pics of Joe. I don’t have  single  GREAT one…good one but not GREAT!! FYI he is not sad in this pics, just super bored. Most likely cuz we wouldn’t let him watch TV or play the Wii.

Love the lighting!

Head over Heels for Hammond Bay - April 27, 2010 - 4:01 am

I have been racking my brain… You are going to pick some little girls to model for you for the upcoming line???

jessica - April 26, 2010 - 4:08 pm

I would just flip out for bathing suits!!!!

TKJT - April 26, 2010 - 1:28 pm

Is Matilda Jane going to be on a TV show/movie/etc?

Beautifulclothing - April 26, 2010 - 1:06 pm

I am really looking forward to the newsletter release and the exciting new post you are talking about Denise. I just am going crazy trying to figure out what only 8 or 9 people know about. You would think if you were coming out with new clothing that more would know about it or even if you were expecting. Gosh, I can’t wait to find out. Little girl curtains would be adorable. I already said bathing suits. PJ’s would be cute too.

Tina M - April 26, 2010 - 11:52 am

Looking forward to hearing how the fundraiser went! :0)

dot+3 - April 26, 2010 - 10:50 am

I made a guess this morning of MJ pjs. It’s gone now. I thought it posted. MJ pjs make perfect sense cause the fabrics are all so fabulously soft and incredibly cute. Who doesn’t like to go to bed with a smile on your face?

gran - April 26, 2010 - 9:12 am

This one is really hard for those of us whose creative brain spaces have either been filled or gone by the “wayside” with the years. I’ve tried lots of combinations of the words fantastic, wonderful, magnificent, super, fabulous, brilliant, beautiful and maybe even others but can’t come up with the new word. Looking forward to this contest answer.

Sallie - April 26, 2010 - 7:20 am

I thought about this yesterday. Is it fabric? and or patterns?

mom2curls - April 26, 2010 - 6:48 am

…and a brave one he is…what an awesome little man you have there!!! Left handed pitchers are hard to come by!!! Enjoyed reading Joe’s story…you really are truly an inspiration to all woman out there for all the things you do to help out others as well as the help you give to your own treasure of a family!!! Just waiting to see you on Oprah before the years end…

mimi - April 26, 2010 - 6:03 am

Since there always seems to be a favorite piece everyone wants from all the lines, maybe you’re going to have a MJ Favorites section, maybe great “staple stuff”, that we always seem to need, like the Polly Pockets, long sleeve tees, the Sack Lunch brown ruffles, cookie tanks, maybe even raven skirts??? Is that even possible? How great would it be???

dot+3 - April 26, 2010 - 4:36 am

I’ve got it… I don’t think it’s been guessed, and it makes perfect sense… MJ pjs! That’s gotta be it.

DKW - April 25, 2010 - 8:07 pm


J.Diddy - April 25, 2010 - 7:47 pm

i was gonna guess preggy too…but i love the idea of a model search! that would be awesome!

jenniV - April 25, 2010 - 6:37 pm

Nothing better than taking a bike ride with your favorite gal pal. You made my day! Can’t wait to hear about the weekend.

Rachel - April 25, 2010 - 2:36 pm

or maybe a really big sale?

Rachel - April 25, 2010 - 2:35 pm

Your newsletter is coming out?

Natalie - April 25, 2010 - 2:24 pm

It would be cool if you were coming out with a limited edition 4th of July line… Hey, I gotta keep guessing 🙂

Rachel Joy - April 25, 2010 - 2:12 pm

My guess is that Matilda Jane will be releasing a new line of….shoes!!!

Janella - April 25, 2010 - 12:44 pm

Thanks so much for allowing us to place orders via the phone on Friday!! Not only was it so easy and customer friendly it was a real feel good knowing that proceeds of the sales are going to help out a lovely couple and their adoption!! Please make sure to keep us updated on the turnout of their adoption. Loved the story about your bicycle, it definately brings back fun childhood memories of riding around on your bike in the summertime without a care in the world!! Isn’t it nice at least to see it all over again through the eyes of our children. I just LOVE that!!

Darlene Burchfield - April 25, 2010 - 11:57 am

A Matilda Jane model search!!! That would be awesome!!

Alan - April 25, 2010 - 11:21 am

The release of a new BOYS COLLECTION??!!

gran - April 25, 2010 - 9:41 am

One more guess……volume 1, issue 1 of the Matilda Jane newsletter.

gran - April 25, 2010 - 9:39 am

No dreams of what is coming next week. I did forget to say thank you to the person who helped with my order on Friday. I did not have access to computer and had left my order ideas at home so ended up describing the items and she found them for me. Thank you!!!!!
Maybe you are coming out with a Matilda Jane tea party set?

mom2curls - April 25, 2010 - 7:41 am

Hope that you had a great turn out yesterday at the pub!!! And again, huge thanks for all you do!!! So glad that I was able to call in two orders on Friday…Thanks again to Becca and Lynette for their wonderful customer service and patience with me on the phone!!!

Lolli - April 25, 2010 - 7:31 am

Love that Joe is coming to Birmingham. Magnificient doctors there. World reknown! Carson goes there for everything she has recieved since birth. UAB and Children’s Hospitals are top notch! You will only be about 40 mins from me. Sure wish I could help you out. Let me know if I can do anything while you are here! It would be my pleasure.
Ok…here is my guess…you are re-creating the original ballerina in HB fabrics. That has been my one wish/hope since HB came out. There are some really beautiful prints to put in one! 🙂

BeckyM - April 24, 2010 - 8:35 pm

Hi. I think you are going to have a “customer design” contest. Have all of us design a great new MJ classic!

justamommy - April 24, 2010 - 7:27 pm

You’re adopting???

K Squared Mommy - April 24, 2010 - 6:52 pm

Is it an announcement about an Online Art Fair? 🙂

gran - April 24, 2010 - 6:34 pm

Spent the past few days at the beach with girlfriends. Thanks for letting us call in orders on Friday. Look forward to updates on the Shampine family addition.My mind is spinning trying to think of what is coming next week. My guess would have been the American Girl line of clothes but it has been guessed. Maybe it will come to me in my dreams tonight.

Sundee - April 24, 2010 - 6:01 pm

Ooh, ooh! What about a contest to find your next MJ Momma models??? I just got a hair cut, and I think I am all THAT!! haha

2boysandagirl - April 24, 2010 - 3:40 pm

You are starting a new incetive program for those that buy a lot of Matilda Jane?

2boysandagirl - April 24, 2010 - 3:40 pm

You are going to give someone an opportunity to help you design some of the fall/winter line?

Mary Kay - April 24, 2010 - 12:19 pm

Your developing some kind of punch card- you know, the kind where you spend so much $$ & then after a certain amount you get something free!!! I think my card would be waaaaaaaaaay pass full! I am so hoping you will design something red, white, and blue or patriotic for the 4th of July!!! I am still thinking…..

2boysandagirl - April 24, 2010 - 11:23 am

Announcing a new location that you will be having an Art Fair at.

2boysandagirl - April 24, 2010 - 11:21 am

Maybe you will be realeasing some Summer Platinum Items

2boysandagirl - April 24, 2010 - 11:21 am

You are going to be on the Oprah Show??

Lqqkme2 - April 24, 2010 - 8:02 am

The release of a new BOYS COLLECTION??!!

FourCinapod - April 24, 2010 - 6:33 am

Early shopping for those who RSVP to 435.

Gina Altieri - April 24, 2010 - 5:44 am

ok 1 more guess.. you r making more of the raven skirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darlene Burchfield - April 23, 2010 - 9:43 pm

Loved reading the story about Joe… Maybe you will be having more than one winner for 435??? :0)

tree*head - April 23, 2010 - 9:14 pm

Hmmm…my guess is you’ll have a contest for naming a new line…

Beautifulclothing - April 23, 2010 - 8:36 pm

Are you having a reduction of inventory to make room for new MJC? That is a new word… reduction! Anyway, we can all wish. RIGHT? I still think you are designing MJ breadbox’s! Maybe, you are just sending everyone a bulletin issued regularly to MJ addicts containing news and a calendar of upcoming events, etc. Not a newsletter, but a bulletin, The Matilda Jane Monthly! The Matilda Jane Journal would be nice as well. I can’t wait to get The Matilda Jane Journal! Have a nice weekend and I am sure I will post again if I get any ideas! 😉

Holly's Mama - April 23, 2010 - 8:31 pm

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I ride my husband’s bike when he is at work and my daughter is at school. It is the greatest feeling like being 14 or even younger. I really wish I thought about having a friend ride with me to the ice cream shop without kids! That’s a great idea… I really wish I knew what the surprise is but sadly I do not. I vote for an Art Fair for West Coast moms though.

Jackie F. - April 23, 2010 - 6:04 pm

I grilled my TK, but she stayed strong….I hate the suspense!
I’m wondering if you’re going to giveaway some of your painted furniture?

Natalie - April 23, 2010 - 5:50 pm

Hey I’m all for the support group…lol

So, how about a retail store at the outlets in Las Vegas?

Annette - April 23, 2010 - 5:48 pm

fun comments…I got an idea. Maybe you are going to have babysitters available to watch all the kiddos Saturday night at the 435 art show so all the mommies can attend your party.

mimi - April 23, 2010 - 5:41 pm

Well, Oprah got her App today, why not Matilda Jane next week? Maybe all your girls are getting new phones. I think we need some more hints. ha

MeganP - April 23, 2010 - 5:22 pm

Ok my guess today is….
That you are going to pick two winners for the 435 contest. Or
That you are going to do a couple art fairs in other areas.

Ok I will be back with more guesses. Hopefully I can come up with something better. 🙂

berni - April 23, 2010 - 4:21 pm

MJC Paper Dolls! That would be SO much fun!

Sara - April 23, 2010 - 4:05 pm

One more idea….a support group for all the Matilda Jane addicts?

Stacey - April 23, 2010 - 3:35 pm

Oh, and my guesses are: underwear, bedding, stationary, a book, your starting the actual Matilda Jane Foundation, jewelry, monogramming, doll clothing, ummm running out of ideas..LOL

Stacey - April 23, 2010 - 2:57 pm

I tried to call several times but did not get an answer and the voicemail was full. I know you guys were very busy today so I emailed my order. Still waiting to hear back. I hope you raised a TON of $$ today!

mimi - April 23, 2010 - 2:30 pm

We placed our order today. Thanks for doing this, Denise. Our niece is waiting for their call to go get their little girl. She is going to Korea, so we know the cost is unbelievable on any young family. Plus, we got some great items.

Natalie - April 23, 2010 - 2:13 pm

I guess I was 10 minutes too late to order for Joe and Christy?!?! I just called only to hear the answering message… Dang it. Is there any chance to still order for this good cause?

rebel - April 23, 2010 - 12:39 pm

“A whole new word”… makes me sing “A Whole New World” from Aladdin… which makes me think that you have designed a new line of rugs??? magic carpets??? : )

I was thinking pregnant also… but others have guessed that! That would be very cool news…

Your beautiful clothing has been selected for a boutique/store… they have “wooed you” and you will finally give in? You are opening up a MJ store????

All guessed out! : )

Sundee - April 23, 2010 - 12:19 pm

You’ll be going somewhere else for Art Fair this year?? Minneapolis’ Uptown Art Fair, perhaps? I know you were there once before, and I would LOVE it if you were here!! I could host a party at MY house!!!! 🙂 My other guess is you are pregnant. I have read you alluding to the fact of wanting more…

tree*head - April 23, 2010 - 11:47 am

OK so I do not have a clever guess – my mind is blank.
BUT I could read Joe’s story over and over again. Gives me more inspiration and hope for my Ana – she’s almost running – almost! :)…Joe’s his legs remind me of Brae’s..all of those lil’ bruises… and his expression is EXACTLY like Brae’s when the Wii, TV AND computer are off limits…

TKJT - April 23, 2010 - 11:15 am

A layette line? Not sure if it’s been guessed. How about quilts/blankets…like those ones you gave away (trying not to be jealous LOL). You need to make matching doll/american girl clothes …didn’t your mom? make some to match before? I remember I wanted to win that contest too LOL My girls LOVE their babies 🙂 Your baby is too sweet too and hearing about how he takes off his glove to throw …WHAT an amazing boy you have! I need to tell my son this when he’s complaining to me about not wanting to catch. 😉

tina - April 23, 2010 - 11:14 am

Have you had experience with UAB or the Birmingham area before? Very close to us and it is a great facility and a great city. Hope it is a wonderful therapy for him!

Katie - April 23, 2010 - 11:03 am

I’m a peds OT and such a fan of constraint induced movement therapy. If you are ever looking for someone who does it closer to home, email me and I can give you a name here in Indy. GOOD LUCK!

kristin m. - April 23, 2010 - 11:01 am

if it’s not a sale, but it’s a whole new word…how about a CLEARANCE!!!

kristin m. - April 23, 2010 - 10:18 am

you are starting a clothing line for cats???!!!

paula m - April 23, 2010 - 10:00 am

Oh my goodness, my son did the CIT therapy program in Birmingham as well!! We had amazing results with his right hand…..Good luck to sweet Joe. Our kids never cease to amaze us with their resilience despite challenges….

Aurora Arceo - April 23, 2010 - 9:15 am

BIKES,summer,and The art fair!

Cariann - April 23, 2010 - 9:10 am

Btw, your boys are beautiful!!

FourCinapod - April 23, 2010 - 8:28 am

Baby on Board:)

DKW - April 23, 2010 - 7:46 am

You’re going to enhance your website so we can shop by size (and I don’t have to get my hopes up when I see something super cute, click on it, and “OH NO” it’s only available in a size 2)?

DKW - April 23, 2010 - 7:31 am

You’re going to start twittering?!

DKW - April 23, 2010 - 7:26 am

Or, someone famous (like Oprah or Michelle O’Bama or George Clooney (okay, that IS just wishful thinking on my part)) is going to be at the art fair.

mom2curls - April 23, 2010 - 7:05 am

Just placed my order!!! Thank you Becca for the awesome customer service!!! And many thanks to you Denise for your thoughfulness in putting together this fundraiser!!!

DKW - April 23, 2010 - 6:51 am

Or, you could be e-mailing us all a coupon that has a discount – some would be 10%, some 20%, etc. (Wait, is that too much like a sale?!) Probably just wishful thinking on my part.

DKW - April 23, 2010 - 6:50 am

I’m thinking it is some sort of contest for use to nominate our favorite trunk keeper and the winning TK will get some super fabulous prize like a trip to the art fair.

shevaun - April 23, 2010 - 6:24 am

shoes?? mjc bicycles?:0

Tina M - April 23, 2010 - 5:55 am

That is awesome that Joe Is doing so well at Baseball! I swear you can see the that boy’s soul when you look into his eyes!!! I LOVE that pic of him!!! :0)
hmmm…a surprise…& it’s NOT a sale, summerline OR a new baby?? Is someone getting married? A giveaway of some sort? Something cool for 435?? Sneak peeks at fall? Am I allowed to take that many guesses? lol

JodiR - April 23, 2010 - 5:50 am

Matilda Jane is doing bathing suits?

Megan Neer - April 23, 2010 - 5:49 am

I love the bruises all over his shins! That is a sign of a true boy! My boys legs are covered in black and blue spots all Spring and Summer long! Good luck with the sale this weekend!

JodiR - April 23, 2010 - 5:47 am

You are doing a summer line? You are going to be featured on television or in a magazine? You are designing something for someone famous?

dot+3 - April 23, 2010 - 4:55 am

Sounds like spring has sprung… Baseball, bike rides, ice cream… So glad you guys are coming to UAB. It really is a world class facility! And lots of sweet girls rockin the MJ in Birmingham!

Katie M. - April 22, 2010 - 11:47 pm

Oh- thanks for the reminder about calling in tomorrow- is there a time frame to do it- want to be sure I dont call too late from here on the west coast! Joe has to be the sweetest and most adaptable child I have come across! If we happen to win the trip out there for 435 – I would love to bring Myles so they can hang out and maybe toss the ball around- how fun would that be! Thanks for all the blogs lately- love seeing all the photos and hearing the news

Emma and Lily and Amitha :0) - April 22, 2010 - 10:58 pm

I love the look you captured on Joe’s face. I see it a lot..I wonder if it the age? Emma is “bored” too. Lily on the other hand can play by herself for hours and hours…
How about Gabe?

Monika - April 22, 2010 - 10:28 pm

I love that Joe!!! That’s all I have to say =)!

Joann E - April 22, 2010 - 10:00 pm

Fundraiser for a great cause close to your heart? 🙂

Sallie - April 22, 2010 - 9:57 pm

How about clothing for American Girl dolls? I would say a boys line, but that wouldn’t be new. Hmmm, still thinking.

Sallie - April 22, 2010 - 9:55 pm

Thanks for posting my little guy’s picture. He was so fascinated with his buggy his sister gave him. And then sure enough, it started to fly away. Joe has some big guts in there. That’s a tough thing to be a catcher and it’s awesome that he is already mastering it. My guess is you will be going organic. I don’t know it was fitting for Earth day.

cristy - April 22, 2010 - 9:48 pm

Bedding. I called it. What do I win:)

I better be right…because I seriously need some bedding for Peyton’s bed.



Skye River & Sienna's mommy - April 22, 2010 - 9:47 pm

You are going to launch a line of DOLL CLOTHES to match the kids clothes???????????
omg- are you talking about my little boy- i limit his TV/Wii but I swear if I let him he would be doing one or the other all dang day!
Have a fab weekend- hope the sale is amazing, amazed at your kind heart helping them to get the biggest gift of all…a baby to love…awesome

mimi - April 22, 2010 - 9:43 pm

Maybe trunk keeper, knot dress, or maybe, Matilda Jane is going to be one of the new words that Webster adds to the dictionary. Something to do with a new word, or new name???

Beautifulclothing - April 22, 2010 - 9:39 pm

You are designing a Matilda Jane breadbox!

Beautifulclothing - April 22, 2010 - 9:28 pm

Are you going to adopt a little girl and name her Matilda Jane. How sweet Denise! I am not sure if you would have another baby? Would you? A Matilda Jane home line would be cute. I love the Liberty of London collection at Target and think you could do that as well and make a fortune. I would buy for sure. Whatever it may be the anticipation is rising each and every time i visit your blog which is multiplying each day.

Kendall Lilly's Mama - April 22, 2010 - 9:15 pm

Wow – what an amazing lil’ guy Joe is. You should be so proud of his strength, perseverance, and abilities – it takes an amazing kid (and family) to achieve what he has! Oh, and I just bought a bike the other day, can’t wait to take it for a spin this weekend!

Heather - April 22, 2010 - 9:09 pm

Your coming out with a sweet line of handbags or a funky SLR camera case!

Melanie H. - April 22, 2010 - 9:06 pm

Love your sweet Joe! I think it must be something about the age, but I cannot get a great photo of Jack now either…he’s always making a weird face or moving or both. But I love the bruised shins in Joe’s picture, to me those are the marks of a happy, active boy! Best to you~

Emma's*Mommy - April 22, 2010 - 9:02 pm

OK…so again, I really suck at this…but how about “Extravaganza”?…it’s a “whole new word”…not sale, or contest, or fiesta…I don’t know.

As for Joe, I am one of the ones who did not know the many wonders of Joe. Now that I do, I just think you are even more awesome than I did before…and Joe too for that matter. You just really have your act together…I know you joke about how you don’t…but really…YOU DO! And for your brave one…wow…he IS and he probably doesn’t even realize it, which makes it even better. BTW I live pretty close to UAB…small world, huh?

mimi - April 22, 2010 - 8:41 pm

Oh Denise, it made my day to get on your site tonight, and see Mimi’s girls washing dishes in their MJ aprons. What fun we have together in Mimi’s kitchen. My mother always made my sister and me aprons to match hers, that’s why I had to have these. Brought back a sweet memory for me.

Holly's Mama - April 22, 2010 - 8:25 pm

Love to see all the pics of the kids wearing Matilda Jane!

Jackie F. - April 22, 2010 - 8:24 pm

You’re planning a carnival for the kids.

*Twinkle*Toes* - April 22, 2010 - 8:05 pm

Your pregnant??? with Matilda Jane???

Grace’s Mom has got it Going On….

Oh yeah Monika you held a strong lead in this one…It is Sarah Pippenger, aka Yama!!!! Love that girl, we miss her everyday while she is off at school doing all that fun and cool stuff that you do when you are 20 something. Geesh, she might not even be 20?? So my winners of that cute outfit, the Edie top and Deliah ruffles are Monika, Emily and Lily (hi girls), Beautiful Clothing, TKJT and LS. Just send Sam an email with your size at

I’d really love to stay and chat but I gotta help Joe with his homework and you all know how that goes. Oh, first, it was so typical at his conference today, David ask all about educational stuff and blah blah blah and me, all I want to know is, is he nice to others, does he behave and follow instructions and is he a good friend? Seriously, in my eyes, these are way more important!!! So in the end I will say David and I are a pretty good balance.

** watch your email box next week for something REAL is top secret so you’ll have to wait to find out…actually let’s see if you can find out, I want to see how tight lipped my girls are….Oh, I love this…Actually it is gonna be tough cuz I think only 8 of us know, maybe 9.

jack sparrow costume kids - September 11, 2010 - 3:29 pm

Wendy J - April 26, 2010 - 8:41 am

I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or not. I keep posting but my posts don’t show up? I think that Matilda Jane kitchen linens and stuff would be fun. I’d also like for all moms that place an order on Mothers Day to get a apron.

Ashley - April 24, 2010 - 10:16 am

a boys line???

Gina Altieri - April 24, 2010 - 5:38 am

You are designing a swimsuit…..I was just thinking why doesn’t MJ have simsuits!

Perchy - April 23, 2010 - 1:06 pm

You’re opening up a couple of retail locations for MJ!

Julie R - April 23, 2010 - 12:21 pm

Will you be doing a model search?

drama's mama - April 23, 2010 - 11:50 am

Could it be some key winners with their pictures of the cool places they put them in the form of a newsletter? Just a guess…maybe with some new key numbers???

Carol - April 23, 2010 - 9:16 am

A furniture line? Or maybe an art fair in a different state than IN or MI, how about IL?

Ginger - April 23, 2010 - 9:10 am

A new puppy!

Kristin - April 23, 2010 - 6:40 am

a new summer line when we thought there wouldn’t be one

Kristin - April 23, 2010 - 6:39 am

another guess the obama daughters to wear MJ or sponsoring a baseball team. a reality tv show?

Kristin - April 23, 2010 - 6:35 am

You are giving a way a bike.

Sara - April 23, 2010 - 6:31 am

Some sort of fabulous new charitable event?

A MJ calender, giving sneak peaks to future collections!!!

dot+3 - April 23, 2010 - 4:32 am

Custom orders? Clothes for the men in our lives?

Katie M. - April 22, 2010 - 11:42 pm

well it would be AWESOME if there was a sale on the older lines- Im sure you need the space in the warehouse dont you LOL But maybe its that you will be picking more then one winner for the conest to 435 this year! Cant wait to hear what it really is because if your THIS excited and tight lipped about it- then it has to be good!

mommy that never sleeps - April 22, 2010 - 9:38 pm

Ruffles for daddys?!! 🙂

My husband does comment on how comfy I look in my ruffles.

Natalie - April 22, 2010 - 9:13 pm

Is it Double Jane Benefits coming soon? Is that a secret?

Allison S - April 22, 2010 - 8:33 pm

a matilda jane home line? would luv it!

Mary Kay - April 22, 2010 - 7:41 pm

I’m right there with you, Denise, about making sure your children are respectful and responsible!! Yes, academics are important, but to me when I get a compliment about my children being polite and respectful to others (peers and adults) that means waaaaaaaay more to me than any grades!!!! I am still thinking about your top secret news….maybe you signed a contract with Target!…. Or a whale of a sale (my husband would love that one)!

My Little Carolina Girl - April 22, 2010 - 6:19 pm

I love the sale idea. I think it would be wonderful if you are going to have your own “Matilda Jane”. I think it would be awesome if Sam was getting married. I also think it would rock if you were going to open a chain of Matilda Jane stores.

MeganP - April 22, 2010 - 4:34 pm

Ok I think you are going to tell us that there will be free shipping for one day! 🙂 Or maybe that you are going to do a buy one get one 1/2 off sale! That would rock my world. 🙂

Tracy - April 22, 2010 - 2:14 pm

Ah, Case Conference time and the dreaded IEP. We haven’t had ours yet, but I always tear up when they ask “what is your goal for your son?” and I have to think about how he will fit into the class and the school and the world… sniff. I always say that I just want him to be happy, so I guess that I’m right there with you, and my hubby asks about the “other” stuff~

mom2curls - April 22, 2010 - 1:52 pm

maybe you will be looking for the next Matilda Jane cover model!!!!

Melody in Arizona - April 22, 2010 - 1:38 pm

MJ Platinum is going to be the sales vehicle for Davids MJ foundation? You are going to announce this via newsletter in which you also let us know that you are having a Blow Out Sale on everything 🙂

FourCinapod - April 22, 2010 - 1:29 pm

Okay one more guess, hmmm it has to be something only 8 or 9 people would know. It has to be some kind of contest (or fiesta) to be able to keep this secret under wraps.

FourCinapod - April 22, 2010 - 1:27 pm

Matilda Jane will be coming out with the CUTEST flip flops EVER!!!!! How cool would that be?!

TKJT - April 22, 2010 - 1:07 pm

OMG these comments are cracking me up!

A baby? How exciting would that be LOL I want another baby sooooooo bad. DH says no way 🙁

Teoma - April 22, 2010 - 12:20 pm

You are going to start having Trunk Keepers in Canada???!!! We are moving there soon and I want to be the first American-Canadian TK!! Please, please, please?!?!?!?
A sale would be nice too!!

berni - April 22, 2010 - 12:13 pm

Is it a SALE!

Maybe the newsletter!? What did you decide to call it?

Emma's*Mommy - April 22, 2010 - 12:04 pm

I am the WORST at this stuff…but I’m thinking that foundation idea would be REAL exciting. Or maybe a new incentive to the Art Fair contest…like a second winner or some other fabulous thing. Either way, I’m sure it will involve your generous nature.

DKW - April 22, 2010 - 11:31 am

You’re going to do a torch relay throughout the country in anticipation of the 435 Art Fair?

dot+3 - April 22, 2010 - 10:35 am

Matilda Jane is going public? Just kidding. You’re having a contest for someone to design a piece of clothing? David’s starting that foundation. Yes, I think that’s it.

Shae - April 22, 2010 - 7:45 am

More boy stuff?!?!? A baby line?!?!? Please say it is one of those! Or bedding would work too…

Robin Amstutz - April 22, 2010 - 7:34 am

Denise, your genourosity is an inspiration to everyone. My daughter Kiara works for Matilda Janes. I can not tell you how impressed I am with your company and employees!! You have inspired me to sew more. Thank you for all that you do for others. Can someone do a cash donation for your friends that are adopting? Have a GREAT day!!!! Enjoy a Mcdonald’s diet coke for me! Ask Kiara about it!!

Julie R - April 22, 2010 - 7:31 am

Your going to open up the online cart to all the MJ lines (not just platinum) to ease shopping for people without a Trunk Keeper?

DKW - April 22, 2010 - 7:19 am

You’re going to sell some of you items at select department stores?

mimi - April 22, 2010 - 7:13 am

Sam’s getting married, at your new house!

Nikki - April 22, 2010 - 6:08 am

An online Art Fair??

shevaun - April 22, 2010 - 5:21 am

bedding- that would be awesome!!!!!

Chris Donica - April 21, 2010 - 9:06 pm

I got it, I got it. You are going back to the old days when you use to sell stuff at art fairs etc, before trunk keepers and start a all new baby line!!! Yes!

Chris Donica - April 21, 2010 - 9:04 pm

So, you are going to give all the faithful buyers something free?

Natalie - April 21, 2010 - 8:58 pm

So, if I’ve ordered does that mean you have my email address and I will get an email?

Btw…just got my first ever MJ order today and my girls were as happy as I was! They look so cute in these clothes. So fun! Kambrie is making me bring baby sister, Kenz, to school tomorrow so she can show her teacher how their clothes match. 🙂

Monika - April 21, 2010 - 8:33 pm

Ok, I’m going with Erina & Grace’s guess and secret wish… MJ underwear and shoes, lol!! Yep, when they are dressed head to toe in MJ EXCEPT the undies & shoes… it bugs them =)!!!

Mary Kay - April 21, 2010 - 8:24 pm

MJ Swimming suits at the beach would be so styl’n…. and matching mom & daughter would even be more adorable. I am thinking really hard & after a long day of work & kids – my mind is blank other than ANYTHING MJ would be terrific!! What about more bags, how about quilts, bed spreads, home decore, a teen line, more Wendy dresses for those of us wishing we had one……. Denise, your mind is always creating– I’m sure it is going to be great!!!

DKW - April 21, 2010 - 8:11 pm

Well I can’t come up with something brilliant so I’m going to bed. My last idea is that you are going to pick a grand prize winning key fob and that person is going to get the entire Hammond Bay line – hahahahahaha

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 8:04 pm

I know I laughed at myself to mimi. That was so much fun! Thanks. I know we need a cute bathing suit for this summer and MJ would be the perfect one. I have not even seen them yet and I will order one. Wait…I am not sure that is what the surprise is…just wishing.

Addie and Laurie's Mommy - April 21, 2010 - 7:58 pm

Are you getting a “Matilda Jane”?

Willow's Mom - April 21, 2010 - 7:57 pm

I’m thinking the “whole new word” is REAL since it was put in all capitals. Now, what could REAL be?? Can’t be a new line, can’t be an art fair because way more than 8 people would know about those. Hmmm…. how about an awesome Mother’s Day contest for the REAL people that are keeping this world running.

April W. - April 21, 2010 - 7:46 pm

I totally agree on the swimsuit idea! Towels to match the beach bag you already have!
More shorts!!! I am hoping for more ruffle shorts!! Tanks too with logo or dear again. 😀

DKW - April 21, 2010 - 7:45 pm

An appearance on Oprah?! Just sitting hear watching an Oprah show and she is interviewing people that are passionate about what you do for a living – I’m thinking you would fit right in.

mimi - April 21, 2010 - 7:45 pm

Congrats to all the winners. Beautifulclothing, you cracked me up. Glad you won. It was a funny read. Thanks Denise. I must be really old, all you young girls are thinking sale, I’m thinking baby. It’s all that “mini Denise” talk from last night. ha

DKW - April 21, 2010 - 7:42 pm

Somebody just beat me to swimsuits – wouldn’t a little MJ style at the pool be so, so, so cute?! Then, you could make beach towels to coordinate!!

Sheridan - April 21, 2010 - 7:38 pm

Please be a summer line….but a bathing suit line would be awesome, too.

Sallie - April 21, 2010 - 7:38 pm

OMG, is it swimwear?!!!!

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 7:32 pm

Maybe you are coming out with a new line of accessories. Shoes??? Wow that would be great. Hairbows? Maybe you are designing hair bows. You know what would be adorable……Matilda Jane bathing suits. So darn cute.

SOUTHERN - April 21, 2010 - 7:26 pm


saoirse's mom - April 21, 2010 - 7:22 pm

too funny. i’m like you,denise, when it comes to the parent-teacher conferences. I’m more interested in if saoirse listens to direction, plays well with the other kids, etc. that’s the important stuff on my book too. oh, and congratulations to all the winners. you are some lucky gals! and i’m guessing online art fair.

Skye River & Sienna's mommy - April 21, 2010 - 6:54 pm

Cant wait to hear what you have in the works :O)

JJARMOM - April 21, 2010 - 6:50 pm

A small summer line?????

Denise - April 21, 2010 - 6:35 pm

Okay girls, i hate to say it..but it is not a sale and I cannot give out anymore hints…it’s a whole new word

Katie M (Lyla's Mommy). - April 21, 2010 - 6:16 pm


Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 6:16 pm

Thank you Denise! I am so excited! I think it is a sale or the newsletter release. I was so disappointed when the whale of a sale got cancelled. A look at the art fair stuff would be great. I am looking forward in seeing what the surprise is. I am sure that whatever it may be will be exciting! Have a good rest of the week and weekend!

TKJT - April 21, 2010 - 6:15 pm

OMG!!! I WON!! I’ve never won!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! How sad I remember when yama left…time flies!

I am HOPING a SALE! Gosh I also hope there is some type of art fair for those that can’t make it to 435…though I know it always ends up being a HUGE headache for you.

I was thinking yesterday when staring at my girls’ MJ that we NEED the green polka dot leggings (pearl fabric)…hoping maybe art fair??

shevaun - April 21, 2010 - 5:53 pm

sale on mommy stuff, that would be great for mom’s day!! I never think to buy for myself, it’s sad- my girls are dresses all cute to a t and i look like a raga muffin!! lol

Emma and Lily and Amitha :0) - April 21, 2010 - 5:52 pm

YEAH!! The girls are so excited they won!! Thank you so much Denise and they so miss you!! It has been ages since we have seen you…

pongoandbindi - April 21, 2010 - 5:52 pm

I’m hoping for an online art fair since I can’t make it to 435.

Joann E - April 21, 2010 - 5:46 pm

How about something really cute for Mother’s day?????

Ana - April 21, 2010 - 5:46 pm

I woud guess big sale on all the stuff or maybe just on all collestions prior to HB

Monika - April 21, 2010 - 5:42 pm

Oh my, I won! Thanks so much, dear Denise!

Mhhh… no idea what your secret could be. Maybe some peeks at new art fair stuff? Or… a-girl-can-dream… A SALE????

amyence - April 21, 2010 - 5:31 pm

I’m thinking newsletter!

Jamie Hicks - April 21, 2010 - 5:27 pm

I’m going to guess either that Whale of a Sale has resurfaced or you’ve decided there shall be 2 winners of the 435 contest 🙂 teehee. Both would rock of course!

shevaun - April 21, 2010 - 5:25 pm

free shipping? everyone loves it when the ups man comes for free!!

Aurora Arceo - April 21, 2010 - 5:24 pm

Platinum sale or updates on the 435 Art fair and party or… previews on the art fair goodys.

Joann E - April 21, 2010 - 5:20 pm

OK totally off the subject but I just noticed that the first five post all have the first letter J 🙂 HMMM maybe more than one winner for the 435 contest!

Julie - April 21, 2010 - 5:17 pm

Oh, please let it be a sale….still calling to order on the 23rd but would love a sale too!!

Joann E - April 21, 2010 - 5:17 pm

An online Art Fair!

Jenna - April 21, 2010 - 5:13 pm

Oooh congrats Monika! Look at sweet Kayla! She is a wonderful spirit and her mom is a fantastic lady who shares my love of MJ!

Yes, that’s what I’m hoping for…A SALE!

shevaun - April 21, 2010 - 5:10 pm

JodiR - April 21, 2010 - 5:04 pm

loveinknots - April 21, 2010 - 4:56 pm

I am thirsty!!;)

Jennifer - April 21, 2010 - 4:49 pm

A SALE!! maybe??? 🙂

Hiding Out

This little chick totally reminds me of someone…someone that works or worked at MJC.  I’ll give you a day to tell me and I’ll give you this outfit.  You as in the first 5!

I’m really having a hard time blogging cuz when I look at the monitor I see my reflection. Like the kind of reflection where you can see every little wrinkle and flaw. This house is so dang bright and I have blinds it just doesn’t work out all that well, I guess. Maybe I should move my computer to David’s side of the room?  Now that may be a good idea…

We are pretty excited about our fundraiser for Joe and Christy this weekend. And I know a lot of you want to help out.  We will be taking orders through the office on Friday only.  I totally did not expect so many of you to jump in to offer, I am so…in awe..speechless..just can’t think of a good word right now..THANK YOU.  The office number is 260-424-3511.

I am so glad I blogged about it. David has been toying with the idea of setting up a Matilda Jane Foundation and I think you guys just helped him. Hmm..maybe we’ll see if we can get him to blog about it this weekend. You remember his blogs? He’s pretty funny, huh?

Oh, oh…(4 minutes later) I have been sitting here looking in the monitor at my wrinkles when I just realized why I sat down to blog…YOU. Yes, it’s time for a Mother’s Day Fiesta. (I’m bored of the word “contest”).  So send us in your notes on who we should surprise with some love.  Please be sure to include an address and size(s).  Just send your entry to Sam, at  The deadline will be this Sunday, April 25th.

Okay, is that not the cutest thing..reminds me so much of this….

Okay they may be cuter..but just a bit..a tiny bit. This is me with Stephanie and Andy, my neighbors. Loved these girls and still do.  It could take years to tell all our stories.

And now I must get back to work. They are putting a new floor in the laundry room and I am sitting in the office trying to be super quiet so they don’t know I am here. I’m dumb like that but I never know what to do. It’s just weird, and I’m not saying they aren’t super nice cuz they are I just don’t know what to do. So I’ll hide out in here.

Tara hayes - April 21, 2010 - 4:16 pm

Sarah rose or Sarah brown or Sarah Anthony???

Darlene Burchfield - April 21, 2010 - 4:11 pm

Sarah brown or Sarah Anthony

Annette - April 21, 2010 - 4:01 pm

Guess I should add more to my guess of Sara. I’m with Holly’s Mama and meant Sara Rose. Funny because we live so close to each other and both posted the same person at the same time. without each other knowing.

Tara hayes - April 21, 2010 - 3:55 pm

Sarah Anthony

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 3:41 pm

Sara Brown

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 3:40 pm

I thought it would be safe just to say Sara since there were so many of them!

Monika - April 21, 2010 - 3:37 pm

Mhh… so it’s not Sarah P? How about Sara Brown then? =)

Darlene Burchfield - April 21, 2010 - 3:37 pm

Sarah P, Sara Brown???

Darlene Burchfield - April 21, 2010 - 3:36 pm

Sweet yama Sara P. ;0)

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 3:23 pm

Brandi Kullman - April 21, 2010 - 3:23 pm

How about Sara Brown?

Brandi Kullman - April 21, 2010 - 3:21 pm

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 3:17 pm

Sara P, Sara S, Sara B, Sarah P, Sarah S, Sarah B, Sara Rose, Sarah Rose lol Sarah Sydney, Sara Lynette, Sara Shannon….Yikes this is exhausting! Sara Kayla, Sara Sam, Sara (sweet yama) Did they call you Sara at some time??? LOL

Rachel Gagliano - April 21, 2010 - 3:09 pm

Could it be your girl Sara Brown?

Denise - April 21, 2010 - 3:07 pm

I need to know Sara who…indeed there are too many Sara’s.

Brandi Kullman - April 21, 2010 - 2:31 pm

Could it be Becky?

FourCinapod - April 21, 2010 - 1:48 pm


FourCinapod - April 21, 2010 - 1:20 pm

Lynette, Rosie

Lil - April 21, 2010 - 12:33 pm

I was going to say Sara… but as I looked at it, I am going to say you 🙂
Love the wendy picture is adorable.. 🙂

Cathy P. - April 21, 2010 - 11:49 am

Sam 🙂

fruit punch tulip - April 21, 2010 - 11:32 am

OK – So if you are “weird” for “hiding out” while someone is working on your house, then so am I. In my life prior to having Mom as my job description, I worked from a home office. The first year we were in our current house we pretty much did a make over on everything, which meant I was hiding out. When the basics were done, I think my husband was taking advantage of my home office days – so I told him I was going to send some guys to do some work on his office and see how much he liked it. Needless to say – the projects stopped. Have a Great Day. Absolutely love the fundraiser you are doing for your friends.

lovedressingherinmj - April 21, 2010 - 10:58 am

Sara S.

Emma's*Mommy - April 21, 2010 - 10:46 am

OK, I join everyone with Sarah P then?

Jennifer Boe - April 21, 2010 - 10:00 am


mimi - April 21, 2010 - 9:14 am

Denise, She should be your child. Has that exactly been said? We’ve guessed everyone but David and those sweet boys. She could be their sister.

saoirse's mom - April 21, 2010 - 8:09 am

alright, i guess i’m going with rosie too! although, i must say that sweet little girl still looks like you! 🙂

Natalie - April 21, 2010 - 8:00 am

Oh man! I LOVE that outfit.

DKW - April 21, 2010 - 7:29 am

I’m late, late, late but I’m going to still “enter” and say Shannon! Love the outfit – it is one of my favorite combos!

mimi - April 21, 2010 - 7:21 am

Wow, got my first newsletter! I think I need to make the trip, so I can meet all these dark haired, pretty girls. Thanks Denise. - April 21, 2010 - 7:20 am

Im guessing its you!

mama2a~n~i - April 21, 2010 - 6:44 am

S reminds me of kayla, I think she favors you as well and I am gonna guess your Yama as well.

Beautifulclothing - April 21, 2010 - 6:14 am

Sara P

mimi - April 21, 2010 - 6:03 am

Rosie??? We’re all checking posts, and still can’t get it:) I told you earlier, you’re “really” all family.

jessica - April 21, 2010 - 5:08 am

It must be you Denise!

Angie M - April 21, 2010 - 3:17 am

So my guess is that she reminds you of you! She is so cute, as are all of your posts.

Katie M. - April 20, 2010 - 11:27 pm

okay- went thru the posts again and realized Rosie had been guessed three times, not twice, but Shannon and Sara S had only been guessed twice so will go with those – even though they have since been guessed

Katie M. - April 20, 2010 - 11:13 pm

I am going with Rosei- because I saw you post in the comments down below that only two people up til then had it right- and thats the only name that was only mentioned twice before- so by deduction- I vote for Rosie 🙂 Oh and by the way- I love that pic of Syd- she is so cute and spunky

Laura - April 20, 2010 - 10:39 pm

So, I think I’m a little late, but I’m going to go with Sweet Yama!!

*TKJT* - April 20, 2010 - 10:22 pm

LOL I knew Sweet Yama was a sara/sarah but wasn’t sure what her last name was.

Terese - April 20, 2010 - 10:10 pm


Debbie Hopson - April 20, 2010 - 10:03 pm

Sweet yama…. Sarah p …Hope I am right:0)

Tara Hayes - April 20, 2010 - 9:54 pm

Brandie - April 20, 2010 - 9:25 pm

Jessica A - April 20, 2010 - 9:12 pm

Lynette or Shannon!!!!!

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 9:00 pm


Monika - April 20, 2010 - 8:40 pm

Did you know who I meant by the “Sweet Yama”???

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 8:39 pm

If you put just plain Sara. Does that count too? Denise, Do you require a last initial if the answer is indeed Sara? We are going crazy thinking of Sara’s. lol

Emma's*Mommy - April 20, 2010 - 8:25 pm

Opps, I think I counted wrong…how about Sara S or maybe Shannon?

Day to the Oh - April 20, 2010 - 8:24 pm

My 1st guess would be Sara S. ( Second guesses would be Sydney or Shannon). So many cute girlies!!! I need to send you some of our latest. Thanks for the fun!!! 😉

Emma's*Mommy - April 20, 2010 - 8:20 pm

Sarah Rose?

KellyJ - April 20, 2010 - 7:37 pm


Kellie C. - April 20, 2010 - 7:29 pm

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:28 pm

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:27 pm

Oh yea. I already said sara awhile back. lol I am ignoring my family at this point. I am so excited.

Emily M - April 20, 2010 - 7:26 pm

I am sure I am way to late but – I think she reminds you of YOU 🙂

mimi - April 20, 2010 - 7:26 pm

Sara Rose. How many Sara’s CAN THERE BE??? ha

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:26 pm

Sara B. I really want it too.

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:25 pm

Maybe Sara S.

mimi - April 20, 2010 - 7:24 pm

Sara B. Gotta be one of those Sara’s.

*TKJT* - April 20, 2010 - 7:24 pm

Sara S
Sara B

I REALLY want that set…even went and read a lot of old blog posts..until I realized I had ignored my kids for a LONG time 😉

mimi - April 20, 2010 - 7:23 pm

Sara S. No clue???

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:20 pm

I had to guess again since you said to keep guessing…..I have been thinking about it all day.

*TKJT* - April 20, 2010 - 7:19 pm

Sweet Yama

kristin m. - April 20, 2010 - 7:19 pm

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:16 pm

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 7:15 pm


Denise - April 20, 2010 - 6:58 pm

Oh, you guys need to keep guessing cuz I am pretty sure I only have 2 EXACT answers…

Kennedy and Korbin's Mommy - April 20, 2010 - 6:40 pm

I didn’t even read the other posts because I know I am too far down the line to win, but right off the bat reading your blog … I felt the little girl reminded you of … YOU! Too cute!!!

berni - April 20, 2010 - 5:32 pm

I think it’s Kayla. I swear you’ve posted a picture if her in glasses and the picture of this little girl made me think of it.

Meredith Klobucnik - April 20, 2010 - 5:14 pm

I would have said a mini-Denise but I am far down the list with my guess 🙁

K Squared Mommy - April 20, 2010 - 4:48 pm

Rosie 🙂

Annette - April 20, 2010 - 4:32 pm

She kinda looks like Ava to me. I don’t think she works, works there but hey it’s a guess.

JennE - April 20, 2010 - 4:30 pm

saoirse's mom - April 20, 2010 - 1:32 pm

oh my! that beautiful little girl could be your daughter,
‘Matilda Jane’. she looks just like you! love it!

kristen - April 20, 2010 - 1:21 pm

I think Sara?!

Emma's*Mommy - April 20, 2010 - 1:21 pm

Got so caught up in my non-existent chance at winning that super cute outfit that I forgot about my real comment…How awesome would it be to get to spend that “dance costume money” on a MJC outfit instead of a poofy tutu will never be worn again and takes up way too much closet space. As I look at Emma’s costume for this years recital…I am jealous at the thought of MJC outfit in it’s place.

Emma and Lily - April 20, 2010 - 1:10 pm

Emma and Lily keep looking at the picture they have with sweet Sarah P. and this cutie pie (Sydney) and they think they look a lot alike! I totally agree. :0)

Beautifulclothing - April 20, 2010 - 1:04 pm

Was there a Carla or Michelle. I checked on the blog and I had seen you mentioned them at one point. i am new to the whole Matilda Jane thing. lol.
This is my last post today I promise. This outfit is precious. I will guess Rosie too.

2nd guess: Sara B?

Linda Z. - April 20, 2010 - 12:14 pm

She reminds you of “YOURSELF”! I’m on a board with this little lady’s mom and I think she’s beautiful! Of course, I’m partial to brown hair/brown eyed girls – I have one of my own! My family met you at 435 last year and I remember you saying that my daughter could be your own – and you were right, you do look alike!
