WHEW I'm back!

Not sure if y'all know about blogs and websites much but one thing you have to do is make sure your payment method is up to date because there are "domain squatters" out there ready to snatch them up and then want to sell the domain back to you or someone else. I evidently didn't do that and some company snatched up my .com domain and wanted a few hundred bucks for me to get it back. And, let's be honest here, we all know I'm too dang cheap to do that!

Luckily I was able to go to Google and get the .net domain with my moniker but it took me awhile to figure out if I could import all my content from my blogger site to a new domain.  I was about to call my Goddaughter Amber and have her come help me but I was finally able to figure out how to get it to work. I was heartbroken about losing everything that I had done since January of 2008 and a bit of an elation came over me when I was able to switch everything to the new domain!

I have some projects I will be posting in the next few days and if you have me on Facebook you've probably already seen them but of course I give more detail in my posts here. 

I hope I still have some followers and they are still able to get notifications when a new post is made. You would think after so many years I would know more about this stuff but NOPE! I'm still an idiot when it comes to this website stuff! 

I will also be sharing something that I have come up with, for sale, that I think most of my crafty friends can find very useful. Right now it's still in the works but I'm going to have it all figured out in the next week or two!

Thank you to my loyal followers that let me know that Okieladybug is back up and running!
