Finally, Got the HTTPS configured on Blogger!!!

I have tried many times to have blog configured with an SSL certificate to allow for https to work on the URL.  No matter what I tried on blogger, it kept saying I don't have the authority to update my own blogger.

Turns out, because I created my blog more than 10 years ago, I needed to walk through the steps to delete my custom domain from blogger and then re-add it again.  I'm soo soo glad I finally ran across post on configuring Blogger for https.  It was exactly what I needed! If you are still having issues like I did, please visit this page under  It will walk you through the steps.

Now that my blog is secure, I think it's time to start posting more.  I've been crafting up a storm during the last 6 months.  Some of the things I've been working on:

  • Deleting old posts from this blog
  • Creating boat covers for our pontoon - this has taken a lot of time!
  • Working with heat transfer vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo - I love it!!
  • I purchased my first cricut - a cricut joy!!  Perfect for cards!!
  • I'm looking into sublimation printing!!
  • Always making cards
  • Sewing quilts, not so much but hopefully this will pick up more.

 Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Back to removing old posts from this blog...

Thanks for stopping by!

Cleaning my Blog House and Cutting files

I've been cleaning house on my blog lately.  Deleting older entries.  I'm planning on completely changing the layout, look and feel of this blog.  I can't believe I've had it since 2009 wow.  So much has changed since then.  I still love crafting when I can find the time.  Stay tuned for a new look!  

 Lately I've been spending time using my Silhouette Cameo 3.  I finally took off the dust cover and got started playing with the Studio software and some vinyl cutting.  I love it!!  I've made many vinyl stickers for myself.   Most of the files have been free files from the internet for personal use.  Amazing how you can spend so much time looking for files and seeing what everyone else is doing with their digital cutter or quilting.

Here's a couple items I completed.  I also created my first Rhinestone template and rhinestone iron on.  Boy that was an adventure.  Not my favorite although I love rhinestones.
