    I loved getting to watch your podcast today on a day off from teaching. Beautiful fall weather here in Colorado, with sprinkles of color as the leaves fall. I love yarn with sprinkles of color as well!

  2. Chris Lopez says:

    What a great show! Loved hearing Ashley’s story of success at such a young age. I’ve seen her adorable Happy Yarn Mail boxes advertised but never had the chance to try. Since I’ve banned sugar loaded sprinkles from my life, I’d love to get my fix with yarn in one of her cheerful looking boxes.

  3. Jessica Lake says:

    Great podcast today! I loved how it was crochet talk Spinkled with business sense. Can’t wait to try Happy Yarn Mail.

  5. Kathleen says:

    I’ve been following Sewrella for a while now, but listening to the podcast today really made me feel that I could possibly do a crochet blog as well. The sprinkles of knowledge throughout the podcast were very helpful.

  6. Lori Landers says:

    Good show! Here’s a tip. I use the empty bottles from sprinkles to hold my darning needles in my travel crochet bag.

  7. Ginny Meeks Widener says:

    This was my first time watching your podcast and I am hooked!! It was awesome listening to Sewrella this morning! The only thing that would make my morning better would be a chocolate covered creme filled donut with rainbow sprinkles!! Now I am hungry….hope yall have a wonderful weekend! Happy 13th!!


    Sprinkles yarn is so pretty!! On another note, my granddaughter doesn’t have an ‘Elf on a Shelf’ she has a “Good Fairy” named: Sprinkles!

  9. Bernadette Lipoma says:

    I purchased HYM a few months ago and can attest to how exciting it is to find the sprinkled box of goodies on your doorstep! Thank you to Ashleigh for posting her patterns and income reports – it’s inspired me to start pursuing my own blog yarnanigans.com

  24. Mary Alice says:

    I have never done a subscription yarn box, but yours with Sparkles sounds like fun! I enjoyed hearing about how you started your career and made crocheting profitable.

  25. Mary Alice says:

    Oops! I meant to say Sprinkles, not sparkles in the above comment. Your yarn box with Sprinkles sounds like fun! I enjoyed hearing about how you started your career and made your hobby profitable.

  26. Bonnie says:

    I was already a fan of Sewrella but after listening to Ashleigh tell her story on the podcast, I love her even more! I wasn’t aware of Happy Yarn Mail and I would love to try it out and get a gift box covered in sprinkles in my mail every month!

  27. Trisha says:

    Ah! Sprinkles – makes we want to eat cupcakes. Because of dry conditions, I’m hoping for rain sprinkles. Yarn sprinkles is a great idea.

  28. Alyx Perry says:

    Sprinkles of love going out to both of you. Loved listening to Ashleigh’s journey. And Congrats Marly on the Yarn line I cant wait to try it.

    Cheers Crafters!

  29. Stephanie Axman says:

    Great episode! I love the idea of a sprinkled box arriving in the mail! Such a happy surprise that would be. I’ve just added a few of your patterns to my favorites in Ravelry. Off to check out your blog…

  30. Suzanne says:

    hello! I enjoyed listening to you two chat. I think Happy Yarn mail is a super idea! Who doesn’t love GOOD MAIL? I also appreciated hearing how transparent Amanda is about her career. Kudos! Did you know that sprinkles (like for ice cream) are called different things in different places in the country? For example, in New Jersey sprinkles are called jimmies. 🙂

  31. Kathy Itson says:

    Great podcast. Really like the information about the ads. Really makes lots of sense. Really going to check out your blog for baby toys, maybe with sprinkles on them.

  32. Leanne Chrispens says:

    I loved this podcast. I went to the sewrella site and am seriously considering signing up for a happy yarn mail box. The sprinkles on the page we’re just so bright and colorful.
