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.

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!

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!

About time….

Wow….oh ya, wow. I woke up this morning, well you could say last night cuz it was about 2 and I have not stopped thinking about some great ideas. I am so fricken excited. I must admit it has been a while since I’ve seen the “light”.ย  I got up so early and am working like crazy, all fun work of course. This is great, it’s gonna be a good day minus the rain but all the more reason to sit at my computer all day!

Hey for all you unclaimed Room Numbers, we’ve got some stuff waiting for you! In the meantime let’s try 3060, 4050,1020, and 840.ย  Email sam, a pic of your key tag, somewhere cool, that represents you and your location.

Shocking that there would be unclaimed room numbers! I would be happy to take those unclaimed prizes!!!

Jessica M - March 25, 2010 - 10:50 pm

So sad I didn’t get a tag in my order! I would love to be checking frantically to see if my number was on the blog! hahah! I always enjoy getting on and keeping up with you! Can’t wait to get my next order on my front door step!

Katie M. - March 25, 2010 - 10:14 pm

sounds like someone got some good inspiration recently! Hope we get to hear what all your working on soon!

*Twinkle*Toes* - March 25, 2010 - 8:04 pm

Come into the light…… Can’t wait too!

Monika - March 25, 2010 - 6:51 pm

Glad to hear you woke up with inspiration!! I still feel like I’m waking up from my winter hibernation….

Denise - March 25, 2010 - 4:05 pm

Yup, we’ll post rules real soon here…i just gotta make them up!!!

Sissygirl - March 25, 2010 - 3:05 pm

Are you going to post the rules and stuff for the contest. I wasn’t around last year for it so I am clueless. Everyone seems to know what’s going on but I’m out of the loop as usual LOL.

Official rules would be fab when you can come up for air!

Kate Adcock - March 25, 2010 - 2:40 pm

I’m so sad that none of our buyers from our 3/9 trunk show got room keys ๐Ÿ™ We were all so excited to see what numbers we got ๐Ÿ™

Melanie H. - March 25, 2010 - 2:01 pm

Yay! Inspiration for you means good things in store for us!!! Have a wonderful day & now I’m off to search for that Today Show clip! Enjoy a lovely afternoon Denise & get some rest tonight!

Erin "the Pancake Makers Mom" Spencer - March 25, 2010 - 1:17 pm

OMG I just watched that today show clip and what an amazing story and fabulous little girl!!! and of coarse super cute outifts on those sisters!!!

Stephanie - March 25, 2010 - 11:37 am

I absolutely love your clothing! For some reason, this outfit (the cute little girls helps) hasn’t left my mind since I saw it! I love it! I’m liking it so much I want one for myself. One problem…..I’m 37! Have one? ๐Ÿ™‚

Amber - March 25, 2010 - 11:07 am

My daughter just pointed to that cute little girl in the picture and told me – “she’s now going to be my friend….”
I love it when inspiration hits – good luck!

tree*head - March 25, 2010 - 10:29 am

Definitely check out the Today show clip. I was watching and then I see them both wearing MJC! Cameron is such a cutie and , wow, everything that beautiful child has been through!

PS…How about posting some low numbers (like, um, 2 digit ones?)heehee…we’d love to win too ๐Ÿ˜‰

*TKJT* - March 25, 2010 - 8:52 am

Ohhhh can’t wait to hear about the “light”!

I saw that story this AM…such sweet little girls.

Emily B. - March 25, 2010 - 8:10 am

That picture is adorable! Love the hat!

Lqqkme2 - March 25, 2010 - 7:09 am

Such a sweet little girl! She is so adorable & what an amazing story!

Lqqkme2 - March 25, 2010 - 7:07 am

I saw that too! Here’s the link Denise in case you didn’t see it:

Tia - March 25, 2010 - 6:19 am

Denise!!! I am watching the TODAY show (3/25 at 8:15 CST) and 2 little sisters being interviewed have on MJ!!! It is the story of a little girl, Cameron, who had a left hemispherectomy due to massive seiures. I am sure the video, or at least pics, will be on the website later. Cool, very, very, cool!

Erin "the Pancake Makers Mom" Spencer - March 25, 2010 - 5:49 am

What a wonderful thing it is to wake up with a great idea, love that!! So much better then waking up and having to drag yourself out of bed. Rain here also but thats ok because i finally figured out what to do for my daughters Smurf bday party…woke up with some great ideas over the weekend and they keep coming. I sware i searched the entire web for Smurf party supplies but no luck so let the craft making begin. Only the “pancake maker” would want a party theme that was popular 25 years ago…love that girl soooooo much!!!!

For those unclaimed keys….you should do some kind of virtual raffle, like just type the word raffle somewhere in your post and have a # in mind (like 1 of the #’s in the key or something) and then whoever post happens to match your # IS THE WINNER!!! just a thought!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Michelle Looney - March 25, 2010 - 5:22 am

Wow, that is EARLY! That’s the time that was supposed to be good for Einstein though. ๐Ÿ™‚

dot+3 - March 25, 2010 - 4:57 am

What a great feeling when the ideas are flowing! Maybe a rainy day nap later… Ooooh, I love those!

Isabella's Mom - March 25, 2010 - 4:48 am

Glad you’re having a great day!! Cute picture, the pretty little girl’s shoes look darling, perfect for HB!!! Good hockey weekend in FW! Miami of Ohio will be there, we talked about coming to watch. We’ll be in Detroit for the championship game, hoping they make it that far.
Take care.

Room 3637 and 284

Happy 4th Birthday Catie!!!

I had told Lynette and Kayla I was going home to watch a movie and fall asleep on the couch. While I really want that to be the truth, it’s not gonna happen. I mean seriously when was the last time you laid on the couch, watched a movie, and fell sleep in the middle of the day?

And here she is, Miss Sam, or Samster or Samuri or just plain ole’ Sammi. Now you all know our very own Sam at 435 has been gone for over a week visiting her super cute boy in CA? Oh, tomorrow would be a real good day for her to come home. We miss her and there’s lots of cuttiing for 435 to do. And I want to show you the pics from the winning keys tags, and even more important to you winners, she most likely has a box full of emails to send gifts too!!

And there is a little pic of my house. I hate to say it but 5650 is much like me, not too photogenic.ย  You’ll just have to wait till 435 to see in real life.

Well, today is Monday and every other Monday we have a lunch at 435 so I must get going and pick it up!ย  Now go take a nap!

mom2P&B - March 24, 2010 - 8:46 pm

Post more pics of your house!! Love the mirror pic. You taking pics of your space reminds me of a friend who just took pics of her newly renovated photog space. You should check it out, very cool they way she had it done, and how she photographed it!

Also, would love to come to the party! I am wondering if there is any chance you get block off more rooms? They are all booked!! Thanks so much!!

Sara - March 24, 2010 - 6:07 am

You have a beautiful new home and darling sweet kitty! Love the perspective using the mirror.

sundee - March 23, 2010 - 7:50 pm

Oh my goodness, Denise. Your home is amazing! Like straight out of a magazine!! Congratulations. I am so happy for you and your family.

Great taste Denise! I wouldn’t expect any less! Your home is just like you; FANTASTIC in every way and so full of many treasure! Can we house swap and you decorate my house for me???LOL

broke_mom_to_4_girls - March 22, 2010 - 8:01 pm

LOVE LOVE LOVE your house!!! Well, at least the little I can see ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would give my right arm, well, maybe my right thumb, for that many windows in my entire house, let alone in my living area alone!!

*TKJT* - March 22, 2010 - 7:30 pm

WOW! Gorgeous house! Just share…don’t be afraid! ya know…not all of us get to go to 435 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lisa M - March 22, 2010 - 6:25 pm

christine - March 22, 2010 - 4:20 pm

Look at that fabulous home! Beautiful. ahhhhh to go home and chill on the couch with no distractions. I think the next time that will happen will be when I retire. When is it that they keep telling me? 2030????? almost there:)

FourCinapod - March 22, 2010 - 1:35 pm

Melanie H. - March 22, 2010 - 11:45 am

What a FANTASTIC house! How did you just move in & it looks so amazing??!!! I hope you still have boxes or clutter hidden somewhere, ha! Seriously, it is a gorgeous house & furnished beautifully! But I would expect nothing less!

Beautifulclothing - March 22, 2010 - 10:08 am

I am so glad that I got to see Samster the cat. So cute! I would love to fall asleep on the couch with Sam purring next to me. Your house is beautiful. It looks so elegant and clean. Can’t wait to hear more about the contest this week. Enjoy your lunch at 435! I would love to work with you all. I live to far away. ;-(

Katie M. - March 22, 2010 - 9:21 am

Sammi is too cute- looks very sofy and sweet! Love the painting over the couch (from what I can see of it anyhow) and I spy another of the red/white striped lamps we saw a few days ago- I really love that! Okay- you have insipired me to go hit a few stores today to look at pillows and lamps- we need something cool in our house- besides Mollys closet of MJ. HAve a great Monday- hope its as sunny and gorgeous out there as it is here in San Diego!

Incognito - March 22, 2010 - 8:32 am

What a beautiful picture of Sammi… and THAT room!!! OMG, It’s BEAUTIFUL!! I know you must be very proud ๐Ÿ™‚ Have to say, I’m very envious of the lighting over you kitchen table and that gorgeous green mirror… oh, and I love the bold red striped lamp!
