    Your excitement about the Reese’s Pieces yarn made me smile. I hope it lives up to your expectations! :)

    And, dude…I’ve had the same thought about the business cards…I ordered 500 of the darned things. If I change my shop site, that’s going to be a pain. :}

    Lisa – I’m certain it will. I have already checked the tracking on the package TWICE – I can’t wait to get it!
