The MJC CoverGirl

And here she is….Miss Katherine from good ole’ Georgia. We are so excited to have her as part of the team for the Fall Photo-shoot but more so to meet her and her mom at 435 in June.

We were so honored to have so many beautiful and spunky girls and boys submit their photos. You are all so amazing and as sweet as one could be.Β  For all our cute faces, perfectly picked out ensembles, fascinating personalities and all the heart and soul you put into the shoots,Β  we thank you HUGE. You guys (girls and boys) brought us plenty of smiles over the past week and are a prefect representation of who we are at Matilda Jane. Thanks for shining so bright!

What a little doll, I think she definately has the look of a MJ girl! I can’t wait to see her model your upcoming line. I was just thinking how lucky your boys are,they are probably constantly surrounded by pretty girls. I know they are still very young, I’m just saying…HeeHee!

435 Art Fair 411

I know you are all waiting….I know and I’m trying to get the show on the road but I’ve gotta take care of a few things before I can announce a single it politics if you will!! LOL, but seriously tomorrow evening I’ll have a MJC Cover Girl.

In the mean time (it seems mean should be spelled differently in this context, doesn’t it?) I know a ton of you are waiting for more details about 435.Β  See above for schedule of events.

Friday night is so exciting because we are excited to beΒ  launchingΒ  the MJC Foundation. This is something David, the girls of 435, and I have been wanting to do but never were quite ready nor knew how to do. We love helping others and feel that through launching the MJC Foundation we will be able to reach and help more people. We can’t wait. So be sure to register with Sara at, she’ll need your address for Friday night. It’s open for anyone and everyone, we do suggest a minimum donation of 10.00 (all proceeds go to the MJC Foundation).Β  We’ll have yummy food, drinks, and even better our very own Glamour Shots, so to speak.Β  Yup, we’ve brought on some hairstylist, make up artists and a few photographers (and of course Aqua net and a huge blowing fan) to do your Glamour Shot. So fun, OMG!!!

Saturday 9-4 is the art fair and then at 7 is the Post Party at my house. Adults only and you must RSVP to Sara for this.Β  I need to be a good hostess and have enough food, drink and chairs!!!

Tina M - June 2, 2010 - 11:23 pm

Ok… So… I want the dress above!!!! It’s too cute!!!

Leah Godfredson - June 2, 2010 - 7:26 am

I hope the rest of us get to see the pictures! Everything sounds wonderful, I sooo wish I could go.

Taira - June 2, 2010 - 6:20 am

So, so sad I am not going to be able to make it this year :(. Since platinum is essentially an “online” art fair, are there going to be items add to that collection soon? Have fun at 435!

April W. - June 2, 2010 - 5:49 am

Wish I could be there…I will be on a roadtrip to Southern California…
Can’t wait for a new line! πŸ˜€

Darlene Burchfield - June 1, 2010 - 11:05 pm

Okay… how do we know our pictures were definitely sent, received and viewed? lol just wondering:0)

Monika - June 1, 2010 - 10:16 pm

I love that picture of Bri, she’s just gorgeous!

Sashadvm - June 1, 2010 - 9:49 pm

Sounds like a blast! We have had a terrible week- would gave loved to see one of my cuties on the table- but I see some of my friends! Yippee

Melanie H. - June 1, 2010 - 9:49 pm I SO wish I could come to 435! It is sure to be a fantastic weekend! The Matilda Jane Foundation sounds wonderful, I can’t wait to hear more about it! You have a good heart, Denise!

So excited to see my girls again!! πŸ™‚
So where is the party on Friday??? I don’t remember seeing a lawn last year…..

Holly's Mama - June 1, 2010 - 8:46 pm

Sounds AWESOME!!! I wish I could go but sadly I live too far away in CA. πŸ™ I’m sure everyone who goes will have a wonderful time! Sounds like you know how to throw a party! lol

Ana - June 1, 2010 - 8:43 pm

sounds amazing and fun! can’t wait!

Annette - June 1, 2010 - 8:41 pm

I love the new foundation! I’ve seen 1st hand how a little dress or two can make girl and her family forget their crummy year for a little bit. Amazing how you picked the perfect one for her. I hear she even sleeps in it some nights.


It’s like a swarm of gorgeous girls here. A few more cuts and a few more envelopes and we are almost there!

Kylen's mom - June 2, 2010 - 7:49 am

What a fun contest – both us big and little girls are excited to see the MJC cover girl!!!

MJMama - June 1, 2010 - 9:49 pm

My “little lovie” was one of the pics on the table picture you posted yesterday and I got soooo excited I called everyone I know and had them look at your blog…(you know typical crazy proud mama stuff) It was so fun to see her on your blog! So many BEAUTIFUL faces! I don’t know how you guys are narrowing it down, but bless you all for trying to make such a tough decision. So, tomorrow evening you say?… Until then I’ll be here, in FL, sitting under a horse-shoe, holding a four leaf clover, with my fingers crossed.. : )

Michele Joy Williams - June 1, 2010 - 8:54 pm

What a hard job this must be! I entered my two girls with their doll strollers or dolls. For kicks we threw in a picture of my son wearing a MJ tie and a Mighty Acorn tee. He was holding his guitar in front of the rack:). We thought that you would like to see it :). I hope that they got entered in time. We had the show close to the deadline. Anyways good luck to all. I do not think that you can go wrong with any of the beauties that you pick….although I would love to meet y’all at MJC! Y’all rock! πŸ™‚ BTW thanks for taking the time to send the thank you for my entry of the contest to come to the art fair. That is so sweet:)!

Abby - June 1, 2010 - 8:19 pm

I so hope that Carly’s photo did her justice & that you find her and love her like we do… Hoping there are still some FL entries in the unopened envelopes!! Your clothes soooo totally capture her sweet, spunky little spirit — so hard to portray in one photograph. She is all girl with dreams of being an artist or a dolphin trainer…and new aspirations to learn how to sew thanks to you and your amazing creations. But much like that precious Ava, she smooths in with the boy fun oh so easily…be it frog hunting in her Cher dress, fishing & clamming in her Pointelle lap dress and big ruffles, or blowin’ by all of them on her scooter in her old-style Cora ruffles. I know she’d do a fantastic job for you and leave with some new fun friends in the Midwest too!! And then I am dying to work with/for your fun company too!!! We just love you so… Well, good luck — these contests make for some seriously HARD WORK for you!!

SydneysMama - June 1, 2010 - 6:32 pm

that little girl with the long brown hair in the center looks like she could be your daughter, looks so much like Joe to me!
I do not envy your job right now at all~ they are all beautiful. We are hoping for another contest like this that doesn’t require a trip to a show since our TK is thousands of miles away πŸ˜‰ Good luck everyone!

Linda - June 1, 2010 - 5:22 pm

Oh my, I’m jumping for joy, my two little girls are on the table. So excited! Yeah! There are some amazing shots on that table. Congrats to everyone. Good luck to ALL of the gorgeous little girls.

Mandy - June 1, 2010 - 4:18 pm

I’m dying for you to finish opening the envelopes. I think ours were one of the last one’s received…I hope so anyway. πŸ™‚ They are all so beautiful and I know one of them!! πŸ™‚

J.Diddy - June 1, 2010 - 4:10 pm

i *almost* had my mom enter me. lol….hey i had my picture (with my friend–JODIR.!)—in front of the trunk.

i love all the girls. i wouldnt want to choose at all! seriously. good luck!

Darlene Burchfield - June 1, 2010 - 3:29 pm

Wow! I can’t sit here and say that my girls are more gorgeous than some of these… although I think they are beautiful ;0) but I thought with FOUR girls I might have one in contention… gee if we had my four we could have a model for the baby sizes, toddler, tween, and my 15 year old can wear adults!! All in one family :):):)

Leah Godfredson - June 1, 2010 - 2:12 pm

The little girl laughing on a chair…love, love, love her. So spunky!

Ana - June 1, 2010 - 2:04 pm

I am so excited to see Lola!!! OMG!!! I am at work and had to type this – holding my fingers for her!

Terilyn Brown - June 1, 2010 - 1:59 pm

Can I break the internet by clicking refresh too many times?

Lynn - June 1, 2010 - 1:42 pm

Really kinda bummed that this was only open to those who could get to a TK. What about the states that don’t even have any??? Maybe if you have this next year, you could find a fair way so that all who have bought MJ clothing for their kiddos could enter.

Kimberly B. - June 1, 2010 - 1:30 pm

Oh the suspense!!! I hope you decide soon!

Monika - June 1, 2010 - 1:27 pm

I see Ana’s girly! Looks like my G didn’t make the cut, oh, well… that’s life =).

boys4girls2 - June 1, 2010 - 1:25 pm

Oh my goodness, that little girl in the center towards the bottom with the long brown hair is just beautiful! No- I don’t know her, just thought I would point out the obvious!
