"Crafter" is an Acceptable Word - My encounter with Words with Friends

Today I was playing Words with Friends and had the opportunity to add an "er" to the word "craft" and I got so excited and then this happened.....

WHAT.....NOT an acceptable word, are you kidding me?  

Anxiety immediately filled my head because I call myself a "Crafter" all the time....I thought, "Am I misspelling it, why is it not an acceptable word?" I also started to think in the 2 minutes I had to think about, "What am I going to call myself now and what about all of those other "crafters" out there, they think it's a word too!!!

I came home, got on my computer and found this....IT IS A WORD....

So just in case you ever want to say the word "Crafter", it's okay....just don't spell it on Words with Friends or you'll get this....

Hope everyone sleeps well tonight!  I know I will......

p.s.  I just did spell check before hitting "Publish" and it picked up that it was spelled wrong....geesh
