Well my time on So you think you’re Crafty is over. I came in third and I’m cool with that. It was a blast coming up with something new that fit into the theme each week. I’m really glad I entered the competition. I’m going to eventually do a round up post of all of the things I created for the competition. Thank you to everyone who voted!

Here are the fab features from last week:

The Biggest Typo I’ve Ever Made


First of all, in case you didn’t know, I am somewhat of a grammar nerd. Not anything to out of the ordinary but I try my best to write my best and I am that person that notices when other people mess up. Sorry!


So here is my HUGE mess up. When I created this blog, I made the biggest typo of my life. In my blog name URL! And it’s been that way for 2 years.


It read

Young an Crafty? Doesn’t make much sense. I totally missed the D on and. Who does that!? I think I was just so excited about starting a blog that I hit submit before I changed my mind. And yes, it has bugged me for 2 years.


All of these folks were switching to .com’s and Word Press. Well, I didn’t want to go to Word Press. I like Blogger and I have never had a problem with it. So my messed up blog name URL stayed because I thought the only way you could be a .com was through Word Press.


Until today! I read this great tutorial over at Somewhat Simple that said you don’t have to switch. That’s right, I’m still on blogger but I am now an official .com. And this time, I got it right! I am now It seems so much more official now.


What I did was buy my domain name through After fumbling around and trying to figure this mess out while making a mess, I finally just called support at Godaddy and they directed me HERE. All you do is type in your domain ( Then go to blogger, settings, advanced settings and type in your domain again. BAM, you are set up.


Now I just need to do something about my email address. It’s still I bought email capabilities through so I might be switching over. We will see how much of a headache that is…


So my words of advice if you want to create a blog is… Check your spelling in your title! And then recheck it again :)


And maybe a third time wouldn’t hurt either. 


Just speaking from experience.
