packing up first order for Williams-Sonoma

Oh I am so excited and I know that I sound loony tunes but I cannot believe it!  I didn't find out until 9:30 am yesterday if the pickup for the first order was going to be today or not! 

Here is my son Jake the "slave labor" who worked so hard yesterday packing and mainly oiling the butcher blocks with mineral oil.  My dad called him, the "personal gulf oil spill."  He oiled up my dad's work bench pretty good.  He will be paid accordingly.

    As for me a lot of wrapping and making packing stickers and packing slips and "this way up" signs. 

I will get more pictures up soon, there is something wrong with my camera downloading all the pictures I took yesterday. 

I am so thankful for all of my friends and their encouragement, this has truly been the hardest "physical" work I have ever done in my life, and it was a really fun and satisfying process.

When the delivery truck comes to pick up the two pallets today and take the 120 butcher block bottles to Williams-Sonoma I am going to want to take a picture of the whole thing and tell him my story.  Mr. knowitall says he's going to think I am a weirdo, but do I care?  No.
