officially for sale on Williams-Sonoma website!




 If you would have told me that Williams-Sonoma would order more butcher blocks in such a short amount of time since becoming a vendor for them, and put my product on their website within a week I would have told you to "take a hike!"  No really, "take a hike!"  I cannot believe all that has transpired in the last 2 weeks.  I have been able to hire more people to help make the wine bottle blocks in order to fill these new orders.  I am so THANKFUL and GRATEFUL!!  Jesus is faithful when you obey and I can definitely say that with all sincerity and truth.



 
There was a particular night last year I was extremely down and lost in the thoughts of "what to do?"  I asked my husband Greg; "do you think we are going to make it? Cause I don't think we are going to make it."  He said, "of course you are going to make it, you just keep going.  You get up tomorrow, you hold your head up and you just keep working hard."  That gave me just the encouragement I needed in order to get by for the next day and then I would need some more for the following day.  What a roller coaster and life lesson this has been. 

Never give up if you think in your heart and your mind that what you are doing is what you are supposed to be doing.  And do not feel bad about being vulnerable, because it just humbles you.  I am still learning that I have to humble myself and trust COMPLETELY in God and give him EVERYTHING.  He is teaching me to trust only in Him for all my concerns and why shouldn't I?  He loves all of us and only wants the best for us.  Thank you to all of the wonderful encouragers in my life, it helps me keep on moving and building those butcher blocks!

  3. Saw you on the Nate show and you inspired me to continue with my project. Have similar story line regarding a failing business. I started this website with a new product but it has not yet taken off. I hope mine will have the same success as yours. Thank you for the inspiration.
