hey everyone…sorry about the blog name confusion/debate as of late. (albeit mostly internally for me) i’m still trying to figure out what to call myself in the blog-sphere. I want to keep my blogger url name..since it’s still about the adventures of rory and jess and now sadie and little baby christian…but I just a new name for the title/header. i’m confusing myself with this stuff.

i like “craftiness is not optional”…

but then i felt like i was bossing you around. like, if you’re not crafty then get out of here. which i totally don’t want you to think! so…i’m thinking about “crafty is my middle name”.

hmm…what do you think?

EDIT: You guys are just great. i think the name will henceforth be:

craftiness is not optional

(although don’t quote me on it, haha jk. apparently pregnancy makes me REALLY indecisive.)


  1. I love both, but I love your craftiness is not optional because it’s funny and cheeky (not bossy at all!)

  2. cute! think they are both great. definitely love the backing of the crafty is my middle name one!

  3. I also like “craftiness is not optional”. Definitely sassy. I like the design of it too. Sorry, I wish I was creative enough with words to come up with some other fun ideas for you! (

  4. I too like the “Craftiness is not optional” but if you are uncomfortable with it, it is your blog and you need to be happy with it.

  5. I think they are both cute =]

  6. I think pregnancy is making you think too much ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. I like crafting is not optional. It’s not bossy, just a little attitudie.

  8. I also like craftiness is not optional. It’s not bossy at all! I think it’s cute and clever.

  9. the first one! it’s very you.

  10. you’re so sweet.
    here’s what I have to say–your blog is all about YOU. the name should be something YOU love without worry of what others will think. It’s your place in space and if someone doesn’t like a title, then then they’re missing some great content!!
    both titles are great–now, what will YOU pick ๐Ÿ™‚
    Neither sound bossy. I come here because of the crafting! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re so talented!

  11. Leave your second choice up for a few days, you’ll know if “you’re feeling it or not”. Follow your gut.

  12. I LOVED the “craftiness is not optional” when I first saw it! I did NOT get a bossy vibe at all! All I thought was, “that’s super clever!”

  13. I have always liked the name too ๐Ÿ™‚ You could always incorporate both if you wanted too. I suppose it could say in bigger font “craftiness is not optional” and then in smaller font below “because craftiness is my middle name”

    I remember those pregnancy fogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I love “craftiness is not optional”. I don’t think it sounds bossy at all. Quick question – how to do you make your own blog layout? What program do you use? I just got photoshop and I heard you can make them with that. Do you know how? Can you give me any tips?
