Matilda Jane this and that...

It's been an exciting few months for me in the Matilda Jane department =). Grace was invited to be part of the adult photo shoot in November, she was the only kid there and simply had a blast. She loved spending time with the adult models, two of them also work for MJC and to Grace it was almost like meeting celebrities, lol. All in all it was a magical weekend, the scenery, the house where the shoot took place... and most of all the people. So many laughs! My husband even commented that his cheeks hurt from all the smiling & laughing.

You can find a few pictures of Grace in the adult catalog (which I still don't even have in my needy little hands... otherwise I would scan a few pics and show you). There's also a few on
MJC's website... check the tween brook skirt or the tween lagoon tee =).

This is my favorite, simply because our puppy made the picture =). LOVE that outfit and promptly ordered it on opening day (well, minus the leggings, since they didn't come out yet).


Then there's the
Photo Love contest. MJC had almost a thousand entries and only 50 made it to the second round. I still can't believe I made the first cut!!!! For the next round the top 50 will receive the same dress, photograph it in any manner... then MJC will pick the top 10 and from there it's public voting. I can hardly wait to see the dress and get my creative juices flowing!!

This is the picture I sent in for round one.


And last but not least, an update about the giveaway at the MJC premiere show! As you can all imagine, our trunk keeper was absolutely super duper busy this week. Opening week is crazy!!! I'm waiting for her to let me know how many orders qualified (she will simply number the orders from 1 - ?), then I will use random.org to pick a number and Shannon will let me know who the lucky winner is!! Hopefully I'll be able to announce the winner by Monday =).

Thank you =)!

Sandy, she got paid in gift cards, so I didn't really have to "buy" it... but we had to wait to order like everybody else ;-).
