dealectible mommies

So I have another fantastic mom blogger who reviewed my product for a holiday gift guide.  Here is the link to the site called Dealectible Mommies The author is Candace who has over 1,000.00 worth of items that she will be giving away to one lucky winner for Christmas.  I want to enter cause I could win some great gifts and I could send a wine bottle chopping block to myself!  (I still don’t have one yet).  But Mr. Know-it-All thought I was serious when I said I should enter the contest and gave me the “that is so wrong speech.”  Doesn’t he know me better than that?  I am always joking around of course I’m not going to enter myself in the contest 😉 never in a million years……..
Go read Candace’s blog……go now you can click off custom cabinet girl I give you permission.

Awesome blog site and great reading for all of you foodie lovers out there and then some.  Christine who writes this blog wrote up a review today about our wine bottle chopping blocks along with information about our heart shaped ones as well.  I sent her one for her to review she “Loved It” and I was so pleased to hear that.  I will be adding her blog to my must read list of blogs.  And if you are in the mood to win a little something, follow her directions at the bottom of her review and you too can have your very own wine bottle chopping block!

ready for the next 3 weeks?

I have been wanting to blog about this or that going on in the shop and I just cannot get to sit down.  And when I do, I feel sooooo tired……. I am excited now that I am feeling more refreshed and ready to go for the next 3 weeks.  Starting this week we have to ship out 300 wine bottles every Friday for the next 3 weeks.  I am excited and also scared because I do not know the outcome after this order.  I do have a shop full of hardworking guys that I am enjoying getting to know. 
This is me in the office putting mineral oil on 10 wine bottles that I forgot to send in the shipment last Thursday.  We shipped out 550 wine bottles, well we were supposed to ship out 550.  Turns out Thursday night I am sound asleep and I wake up thinking about the pallets we shipped, and started counting.  Who does that?  Apparently I do, but I kept counting and counting and thinking no you didn’t!  But I did, I had a total of 480 wine bottles packaged on pallets and I thought “only need 60 more!”  Of course my foreman Mark says, “April we have too many extra.”  And I say, “no no we only need 60 more.”  He obviously wasn’t counting either.  When I woke up I realized “NO I NEEDED 70 MORE, NOT 60!”  My heart is pounding in my chest that I have made this horrible mistake and how am I gonna fix it.  I remembered the guy that picked up the pallets said they would either be driving them to Mississippi or they would go on a train.  I could see myself running after the train, “STOP!  STOP! I HAVE 10 MORE, JUST 10!”  What an idiot I am!  And when I have to email the Williams-Sonoma people they just say, “oh no problem, happens all the time!”  I hope she wasn’t just being nice because hearing that gave me a peace beyond understanding.  I am such a ball of emotions as Mr. Know-it-All would say.
