Samuel Jackson

Yes, we like to refer to her as Samuel Jackson, or little Mule or just Sam. We love this girl and she is now 21, well, on the 1st she will be!! Seeing she has become part of the brains behind Platinum we’d better offer FREE Shipping on Platinum as well. Consider it, her birthday gift to you!

Oh, and how about we drop the minimum and apply free shipping to any size order. This applies to Platinum as well as Trunk Show Shipping.ย  (shipping to lower 48 states only)

Effective Thursday, April 1, 2010. 8am EST

I just like the approach you took with this subject. It is not often that you discover a subject so to the point and informative.

mimi - April 3, 2010 - 5:26 am

Happy Birthday Sam! Love this girl. She sends the sweetest emails, and is “always” kind and helpful! Love her spirit and passion for her job. The new look of Platinum reflects all those qualities. Have a great weekend.

Emma's*Mommy - April 1, 2010 - 8:10 pm

Happy Birthday to Sam and thank you for the free shipping! My husband probably won’t thank you since I placed an order today that I wouldn’t have had I not had a good excuse like free shipping…oh well…it would have eventually happened anyway. Thanks again.

Laura Ann - April 1, 2010 - 7:36 pm

Denise ~ thank you so much for continuing to GIVE, GIVE, GIVE and GIVE some more. Seriously, you never stop. I know you do not do this to get thanked and you would rather your thoughtfulness go unrecognized, but every day I see more of your giving spirit and out of the blue got to experience it today through Share the Love. What a sweet suprise and it could not have come at a better time. Thank you so much for all you do…I try to live by the motto “you can never outgive” everyday in my role as an educator and you sweet friend exemplify that. I never knew the day I discovered MJ that I would gain a sweet friend & fabulous TK (KN) and so much more. Thanks again for all you do.

Laura Ann - April 1, 2010 - 7:29 pm

Happy Birthday to you…happy birthday to you….happy birthday dear Sam, Happy Birthdy to you! I hope you have the happiest 21st birthday evah. Thanks for all you do to keep the MJ Platinum coming.

Denise, You are such a sweet and thoughtful person!! I don’t know you, but it seems you are always puting others first. It’s so refreshing in this world these days to come across selfless and giving people. Thanks for all you do you put a smile on so many little girls faces! I look forward to the MAGIC you create!!

Beautifulclothing - March 29, 2010 - 1:01 pm

Laura Ann, I am begging also! I would love to get my hands on a raven skirt in a size 4. I regret not purchasing it when it first came out. I am excited about the 3rd HB line coming out. I really want one of those cookie tanks. Good luck.

NICOLE - March 29, 2010 - 12:12 pm

Very cute kitty ๐Ÿ™‚ and pretty awesome picture also.

Tara Hayes - March 29, 2010 - 10:40 am

She is beautiful!! I love cats, but I cannot have one cause I am SOOOO allergic! I saw one at the Animal Shelter and wanted to take her home, but after about 10 minutes of petting her, I began sneezing and my eyes swelled up… ๐Ÿ™

eileen - March 29, 2010 - 6:31 am

She is beautiful. I agree she must have some Maine coon in her. ( as I lay here petting my beautiful part Maine coone cat!)

Lillie - March 28, 2010 - 7:15 pm

Love what I am seeing and Sam is adorable…

I have to say WOOO HOOOO… I have seen pictures from 2 friends kids on here in the past few days…

Maria. Love the pic. of the kiddos!!!!!!!

Susan… Love the shot of Carson a few days earlier….

Laura Ann - March 28, 2010 - 1:51 pm

I am not a cat person, but this a pretty cat and I am so glad he makes you guys happy.

Denise, you and your crew completly outdid yourselves on the Hammond Bay line. Every piece of it is beautiful and oh so girly. However, I missed out on lots of it because I was planning my son’s 1st Birthday. However, I was fortunate enough to place an order and piece together a couple outfits that should be heading my way soon.

If there is ANYONE out there that ended up with some extra 4’s please, please contact me. (yes I am begging). Please understand I will only pay what you paid for it, I am not willing to support the folks on EBAY that take advantage of the hardwork of the MJ crew. So if you have some and feel like sharing, I am your girl.

Laura Ann

NYSweeties - March 28, 2010 - 10:59 am

She looks JUST like our Cobie!

Katelyn's Mommy - March 28, 2010 - 10:56 am

Pretty, pretty… and looks like she knows it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautifulclothing - March 28, 2010 - 9:45 am

I am so excited about the contest. I can’t wait to find out the details. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Christine - March 28, 2010 - 8:32 am

Oh, she is so cute! She does look like Maine Coon. I also have 1 (Geisha) and a little Persian (Miu Miu). We just lost her sister suddenly this year (MiMi)

Denise - March 28, 2010 - 7:05 am

I’m emberrased to say, David and I spend about 10 minutes a night drooling her her. It is quite funny…maybe cuz she is our only girl? Or maybe cuz she is so dang funny.
Contest rules coming this week so we can go on Spring Break no stress!

Ali - March 28, 2010 - 5:58 am

AWh… I LOVE her pretty pose. I want to meet her!

Katie M. - March 28, 2010 - 1:20 am

If you ever find the need to rehome her- Myles and Molly are DYING for a cat!
Any chance we can get details/rules for the contest soon- I have two ideas and I need to know which way to go before I do too much on either one ๐Ÿ™‚

*TKJT* - March 28, 2010 - 12:44 am

Awww so glad you’re enjoying Sammie ๐Ÿ™‚

Darlene Burchfield - March 27, 2010 - 9:58 pm

Cats are beautiful… I’ve never had one. My mom always disliked them and my family has always owned dogs. My dad also raises labs. We have a beagle and a lab. What are the advantages and or disadvantages of having a cat? You have had both now sooo… please share. Since I really don’t know.. LOL! Oh and I am sooo loving our MJ. I keep ordering more!! Just cannot help it!

Skye Johansen - March 27, 2010 - 9:39 pm

Looks like she’s becoming more social! She is so beautiful and I can tell she is loving your new house!

Erina - March 27, 2010 - 8:33 pm

SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! I wish she was mine… but wait… I already have two beautiful cats =)!!!!

Monika - March 27, 2010 - 8:31 pm

She looks lovely!

Melanie H. - March 27, 2010 - 8:31 pm

She is a lovely gal! And your house looks positively amazing! Hope that you are having a grand weekend!

tree*head - March 27, 2010 - 8:18 pm

OOO I like her a lot to! Too bad my hubby is allergic :(…so no cats for us but we have one VERY spoiled chihuahua!

Beautifulclothing - March 27, 2010 - 7:40 pm

Awww. So snuggly.

*Twinkle*Toes* - March 27, 2010 - 7:36 pm

ready to pounce…..

Dana - March 27, 2010 - 7:29 pm

AAH, I have 3 cats, and two of them are Maine Coons, which is what this one looks like. Love it!

Cynthia Schauss - March 27, 2010 - 7:12 pm

That is the most beautiful picture…of a cute. I love how it glows!

Mississippi Gal - March 27, 2010 - 7:07 pm

I like her too! Especially her name because our male cat is named Sammie! He is more black with white fluffy fur. Our cats together could make beautiful kittens!!! Cats are awesome! Just like MJC!!! bTW love, love HB!

Another good day on the horizon. Two days in a row, now that is a pretty cool thing. Seven more days till Spring Break and that, my girls, is a marvelous thing. And Room Number 14,28,56 and 4872 ….we have good things in store for you too. Just email Sam, with your info and photo.

My head is still spinning with the previous early morning ideas…they are almost down on paper. Almost.

I love all these darling pics I have been getting of brothers and sisters. Are they not the sweetest duo? Talk about sweet….. Gabe asked Joe if he would sleep in his room with him tonite. Joe actually agreed!! Amazing. Joe is tending to be a bit selfish lately. It is so hard to teach that. To be honest, and I am not bragging, or trying to sound cool, but I really am not much of a selfish person nor is David. I know kids don’t mean to be, but I am constantly saying “Joe, you are cleaning the kitchen counter to help me, not to get to play a video game. You do things to help each other not because you want something in return.” That is the hardest thing to teach a kid, and it is not so much that they are selfish, I just think they don’t know otherwise. Who knows..

Alrighty, now I must get back to work.

Wendy Knafelc - March 27, 2010 - 1:42 pm

Oh Denise! I have missed you so! I have been so sick with my back and being in bed, that I rarely make it to the computer. I missed Hammond Bay completely and what a miss it was. YOU really outdid yourself on that one and must be soooo proud. We are scraping here, so it will be a while before I can investin MJC, but it will be worth the wait.
Thinking artistic thoughts for you!

Stacy - March 27, 2010 - 8:03 am

My son has Asperger’s so we do a lot of work with earning time to do what he wants with doing his chores, getting work done etc. His therapist said it is ok not to expect them to want to do things for people unselfishly. In life we all do things for a pay off. Even doing something nice for someone gives us kuddos. It’s like that episode of friends where Phoebe was trying to do something totally selfless and everything kept having perks for her. Finally she let a bee sting her as her selfless deed and her friends said “You know now the bee is going to die”. Oops. As long as the reward is not a thing(monetary), it’s ok to have payoffs for helping out, kids are very concrete. They will eventually learn on their own. Frustrating though…I know.

Lisa M - March 26, 2010 - 7:35 pm

That is so sweet! Tiffy won’t let Brittany sleep in her room AT ALL. But, every now and then they do sweet things for each other and it melts my heart!!

Enjoy your Spring Break ๐Ÿ™‚

Carol - March 26, 2010 - 3:57 pm

Now I think I MUST get a Might Acorns T for my daughter! Still waiting on a room # in the 2000 range to come… sigh

JJ - March 26, 2010 - 3:22 pm

Gosh- hope us odd numbers get a break soon lol

Kristi - March 26, 2010 - 1:28 pm

Hi Denise!
Just wondering if you are going to have more of those fabulous ruffle skirts from Hammond Bay (shown with the Dance Yourself Silly Tank)coming in, ever?!? I am embarrassed to admit that I keep checking every day just hoping one day the picture will be back up with a size 18months or 2t. I wanted it for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party, but I know they sold out too quick. ๐Ÿ™ I cannot imagine a better party skirt…why do I get an outfit in my head and cannot seem to let it go?!?!

Skye River & Siennas mommy - March 26, 2010 - 12:58 pm

Gosh Denise. I have found the same things with parenting/teaching my kids. The “character” issues are the most difficult to teach and are tough for me too, kills me to see them be anything less than sweet to others, ya know? It seems to be hardest with my oldest for some reason. She can tend to be selfish and not always considerate of her younger brother and sister and it really bothers me and is hard to “teach” them how they should feel. :O)

Denise - March 26, 2010 - 12:29 pm

oh, just completely random, no rhyme or reason… but I can tell you they start at 1 and go up to 5000!!!

boys4girls2 - March 26, 2010 - 12:18 pm

Argh! Wondering how the number are picked? I haven’t seen hardly any in the 3000’s! Love the pictures…makes me always want to buy more!

mom*mjgirl - March 26, 2010 - 11:43 am

Just HAD to let you know that Emily Grace entered her classroom this morning and announced, “Good Morning! I’m a Matilda Jane kinda gurl”! She is 4 and cannot get enough of your clothes!

Jamie - March 26, 2010 - 11:12 am

Ooooh close, made me do a double take. I am 4972, not 4872. Doeth, hahaha. ๐Ÿ™‚

Monika - March 26, 2010 - 10:57 am

I know just what you mean, I hear “I’ll do …, if you do … ” a lot around here lately. I agree with you though, kids just don’t know any better yet.

Thanks for putting my girls up there. They’ll be thrilled! Erina thought she’s getting too big to be on your blog… she said “You know, mom, I’m just not as little & cute anymore!” Awwwwww!!!!

tree*head - March 26, 2010 - 10:15 am

Awww Denise- thanks for picking 2 digit numbers :)….I was pretty close! Brae and Ana will be thrilled to see their pics on the blog!

Christine - March 26, 2010 - 10:13 am

The constant pictures of everyone are great! Everyone looks adorable in the clothes. Another weekly run at Target today and they had more Liberty!!! YEAH!

Jessica - March 26, 2010 - 8:10 am

I am loving the Bay of Birds Tank dress with those argyle socks!!! I must order that dress ๐Ÿ™‚ Darling pictures!
