indiegogo campaign is live!!

Weber Company started our Indiegogo Campaign today!! We have exactly 30 days to raise $40,000.00 to purchase the Eplilog Fusion Laser Engraver. 
We need your help to make this happen.  We are asking for pledges but in return for each pledge depending on the amount you give, you will receive a cutting board engraved with your initals at a discounted price. 
You can check out our campaign here; http://igg.me/at/webercompany/x/5541661

Being able to purchase this engraver will help us to be able to engrave our boards with initials, quotes, pictures, and so much more. 

Our video that we made for the laser engraver is at this link;
 
I will keep you all updated on the progress of this campaign......

Epilog laser engraver you need to be mine!!!!

It seems that the door opened for us to build these wonderful cutting boards and wine bottle boxes and utensil totes for "West Elm!"   The wonderful sales rep for the Epilog laser engraver we are trying to purchase allowed me to come to his office in San Jose and make the engraving samples for West Elm.  I was more excited about being able to "dress up" and wear office clothes from the usual "shop clothes" I have been sporting.
These are a couple of photos of the laser at work........
 












I am still trying to get the funding for the "Epilog" laser engraver that I need for these projects but I am still in the process.  I really need prayer for God's Will in this!  I really think He will provide and I am certainly taking a leap of faith on my part, and I can feel my heart beating quickly right now just writing about it. 
I was debating on whether or not to write about how I really feel this week............... or to write about how I really really feel this week.  I am discouraged yet trying to overcome the obstacles that are in my way.  I have come to the realization that I need to pray a lot more,  and i have really realized the Grace from Jesus is so much more than I could ever imagine or dream of and I need it desperately every minute of every day.  I need more prayer for what lies ahead. 

Mr. Know-it-All or as I sometimes call him Mr. Negative thinks i need to prepare for the "no" answer!  Ha!! I laugh in the face of the "no" answer, don't tell me I can't do it because i will try to prove you wrong. 
Although, if it is God's will that my answer is "no" who am I to question that.  But if His answer is yes................a girl can dream, wish, hope, and keep praying..........

i might be a little too transparent but................

I have found that being transparent in business runs a fine line of telling too much because you are afraid of those that might label you "unprofessional".  I have found that I like to hear that others make mistakes too in their business.  I find them "relatable." 
 
And is it not a breath of fresh air when someone understands what you are going through?  Sometimes I google a problem I'm having just to see if I can find someone else who I can relate to. 
 
Well, on to the transparency thing, here goes.  My dad and I have been looking at a piece of equipment to purchase (well lets get real and transparent), lease or pay payments on........  We have been privileged to be asked to build some amazing cutting boards and accessories (6,000 of them........ holy cow) but they need to also be ENGRAVED!! You read that right, ENGRAVED!!!  And I am just the GIRL to do it!  But I need the machine.  And here is a picture of it!!
Its the Epilog Laser Legend and it needs to be in my shop ASAP!!
We have been praying for a miracle.  God has brought us the work and the need for the machine and now I believe he will bring us the money to purchase it.  I don't know how, but I am sure excited to find out!! Aren't you??? 
 
I will keep you posted,
