packed and ready to go!

Well its been a hectic week to say the least.  I haven't even tried to continue with my kitchen renovation which I want to get done before the 4th of July.  I think I can do it though.  I think I can.....I think I can....

So you are now looking at the new product I packed up and shipped to Williams-Sonoma today!  Isn't it beautiful.  We had to change out the cork in the top with cherry lumber, and to find what I needed was a nightmare!  I am using a cherry dowel that is 1 1/4" in diameter and we wanted a 1 1/2" diameter.  I can't find it!  I don't think it exists!  If it does, it costs way too much money, and I cannot, repeat CANNOT add to the cost of this thing. So if it gets shipped to them by Thursday morning they will product review it on Friday and let me know if I am a Williams-Sonoma vendor! 

So I got my little tag together with the care instructions and tied it onto the neck of the bottle with the special thread I bought.  All I can feel now is anxiety until I get the news!  Yea or Nay!

Oh, and I emailed the president of Williams-Sonoma to tell him thank you for giving me a chance and I told him how honored I was that he loved my wine bottle.  I basically laid my heart out and let him know that dreams do come true!  He replied, "dreams do come true if you work hard enough, and your board is well done and a great idea for entertaining."  Thank you very much, I will keep you all posted.

  2. I'm very excited for you. I know that this is going to work! And if not with Williams-Sonoma with QVC or Dean & Deluca. The sky is the limit if you work hard, believe in yourself and make a quality product.

  3. Helloo there, April! I found ya! What a fun blog you have here :-) I really like the wine bottle butcher block ... what an fun concept, very cool for entertaining guests. It seems like it could be a big hit with wineries, too. (Amazing how well the wine industry is doing, despite the tough economy.)
