The BIG Announcement

It's official - I can now let the cat out of the bag!!! I know I've kept quite a few of you wondering when I had announced earlier I had some big news and what it all meant. I had a few very interesting guesses (no, we're not pregnant, we're not moving again and I'm not joining the circus). Let me ease you into the news...those that know me well will say I am a diehard fan of Matilda Jane Clothing...I'm not as extreme as some ladies out there (not that it's a bad thing), but I own my share of pieces for my daughter and myself, and love them to bits. For those of you not familiar with Matilda Jane Clothing, please let me introduce you to this wonderful and artsy clothing company!

Denise DeMarchis started Matilda Jane Clothing a few years ago selling her handcrafted clothing at art fairs when she was convinced by supportive family and friends to follow her dream and make it into a real business. Well, that is just what she's done, and it's a thriving business at that! You MUST take a few minutes to peruse through her beautiful new website and visit the different collections she offers. The clothing is the perfect juxtaposition of sweetness and spunk right down to each and every detail such as the buttons, the ribbon trim...pure creativity!
The bulk of her clothing is for girls in sizes 6 months to 6 years for children and the tween line for sizes 8 years to 12 years.

Matilda Jane also offers a women's line in sizes S-L that has been expanded with this collection. They also have a variety of accessories (tights, socks, hats, headbands, etc.) along with a few boys pieces thrown in as well.

So, I am very excited to announce that I will be a Traveling Trunk Jane for the Spring 2011 season with hopes that I will sign on with the company in Fall 2011! What does this all mean? It means that I will have the FULL SPRING 2011 COLLECTION in my hands and can travel to you so you can host a show in your home. Yes, as I now say, "I have a trunk and will travel!" Don't want to open your home and have a trunk show? No problem...send your friends and family the website link and have them find what they like. They can email their items to you or me and we can have an online party! Either way, you are the Jane (hostess) and will be able to take advantage of the awesome benefits - what a great way to earn half-price and even FREE (yes, I said FREE) Matilda Jane pieces!!! I am so excited to share that opportunity with you!

The Spring 2011 House of Clouds Collection launches on February 1, 2011 with a second (quite large) release on March 1, 2011 and a third release of a few more pieces in early April. You can get a sneak peek of some of the spring collection items on the Matilda Jane blog by reading a few posts and viewing the photos. ** Warning: The line looks just delicious!!! Be prepared to have a long wishlist. *** I will be hosting my trunk show launch at my home on Tuesday, February 1st from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. If you are in the Fox Valley (WI) area and want to come see the House of Clouds collection or know you want to buy some new items, please come over and bring a friend or a carload - the more, the merrier! Email me here through my 'contact me' button and I will get you all the fun details!!! Or contact me if you are within the state of Wisconsin and want to host your own trunk show to get all the awesome benefits!!! As I said before, I have a trunk and will travel!

I'm excited to be working with my original Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper who has become a trusted friend of mine and elated to have found something where I am able to stay home with my daughter during the day and run a business in the evenings and weekends. I am looking forward to all the wonderful new people I am going to meet and the new experiences ahead of me - I feel very blessed with this opportunity. I hope you join me on this journey - I would love to make you a happy Jane with those awesome benefits!

Oh my! The kids clothing is adorable. I have not heard of them before and will have to check it out. My niece would love their dresses.

Hi Steph! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. The spring debut is Feb 1st - please have your niece's mom check out the site and if there is anything she absolutely adores and thinks she can't live without, I suggest she orders it through me. Popular items tend to sell-out rather quickly...I'd hate for her to be disappointed! And the women's line this spring is going to be awesome! Be sure to pass on to your friends and relatives...I bet that niece of yours would look adorable in just about anything Matilda Jane :)
