Put a Fork in Us, We are DONE!



Yes, my fair readers, we are officially open for business. It was a monumental feat, involving a lot of hours, sweat, missing families, and pleading for free labor (thank you Mom, Dad, John, Courtney, Sarah, Allen, & Christine).

Sheryl and I are proud parents. Click here to see our baby.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so excited and happy for both of you!! Yarntopia looks AMAZING! I just clicked on the Yarntopia link and the shop looks incredible!! I love the way you organized the yarn- so pretty and the atmosphere looks so inviting and cozy. I wish I lived closer so I could visit!! If I ever make it out to Texas, Yarntopia is definitely first on my must-visit list. Congratulations, again to both of you- I couldn't be happier to see your dreams come true! Take care, Amy! :-)
