Well...We didn't reach $15k...but I GUESS that's...OK.)
Hello Fellow Kickstarters & Grandma Storn's Family Members!
Even though you do not know me all that well, yet. I hope my sarcasm comes through loud and clear.
You are all amazing! You did it. You made this Kickstarter Project a smashing success. CONGRATULATIONS!
We ended up with 857 BACKERS that PLEDGED $14,515 for 1,861 REWARDS (Wheels).
I really started this project with zero expectations and have been blown-away by your interest, enthusiasm, and support. We had shelved Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel and all but left it for dead. And you all came along and breathed new life into it. KICKSTARTED The Wheel, as it were. And for that I am extremely grateful to each and everyone of you; from the fifteen (15) $1 Backers all the way to the four (4) $100+ Backers and everyone in-between.
I am having a Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel Packaging Party here in Cincinnati tomorrow night (Friday, Dec. 21st) with a few family and friends coming over to help get the rest of your Wheels ready to ship. If you are in Cincinnati and want to join us, contact me.
As some of you have already learned, the Pre-Christmas Requested Wheels were ALL mailed on Monday. I hope you will overlook my fib about waiting until the end of the project and the verification of the Pledges before sending the Pre-Christmas Wheels. It simply was not going to work. And, frankly, I was worried someone or a small group of people would wait then de-pledge. So thank you to everyone in that group for confirming my faith in my fellow Kickstarters.
As it stands, we only had about fifteen (15) Flat-Tires, as we call folks who de-pledged; though, we understand. Sometimes we simply change our mind. Hopefully everyone will be back at one point; either for our next, 2nd Ks project (Grandma Storn's Herb Wheel 2 App) and, possibly, a final 3rd Ks project around September or October next year for Christmas (no craziness, we'll do it plenty early for Christmas 2013, if we do it.)
We will be in-touch with UPDATES, STORIES like what happened when I took the first nearly 100, apparently, too "large" envelopes to the Cincinnati regional USPS office, and, of course, PICTURES.
Merry Christmas to ALL! And may your 2013 be your best year yet!

The SCRATH-N-DENT REWARD: As a very particular entreprenuer, quality control is tight. We reject any Wheels that have even what many would consider minor imperfections as we want our backers to have the very best. So we created this category for those that are fine with minor flaws. This is a FIRST COME, BEST of the SCRATCH-N-DENT inventory. As we go through The Wheels from our supplier we separate them into Sample quality, 1st Rejection Quality, 2nd, and 3rd. These Wheels will come from that 1st Rejected pile and there are a limited amount so scoop'em up before they are gone.Estimated delivery: Jan 2013Add $6 to ship outside the US

+++TEN WHEELS +++FREE No-Ad Herb Wheel App ($9.99 value) +++YOUR PERSONAL FUN ITEM ADDED to the Herb Wheel App+++THIS REWARD WILL BE $1,000 IN THE WHEEL 2 APP PROJECT!!! SO DO IT NOW..................................... For folks with the means and desire to be a Backer for a great project and product at a higher level to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit. Ten (10) Signed Herb Wheels for gifts and appreciation-Thank You's. And you get to add a funny 'food' to the Herb Wheel App for all to see; or find. For example, the item would appear just like a food: "Lance Derry --- Dork, Dufus, Dunderhead". Great way to immortalize a friend.) Lance, btw, is one of my very best friends that I have known since I was 8. And he is a big dancing-dork.) (Subject to Approval; i.e. let's keep it reasonably intelligent.) These will be the only Wheel App Add-ons in the original release of the App. This reward is contingent upon the Wheel 2 App project being successfully funded in January. Our goal will most likely be $12,500 with Wheels as rewards. I still have some more research to do before officially setting the goal. Based on the popularity of this project we should be able to get there. +++A FREE download of the No-Ad Herb Wheel App (contingent upon the January Wheel 2 App Ks Project being successfully fully funded.)Estimated delivery: Jan 2013Add $10 to ship outside the US
