Crafter vs Creative Designer

What do you think of the word "Craft" or "Crafter" "Crafts" ect. ? How about Creative Designer?

    To me the words “Arts and Crafts”, “Craft”, “Crafting”, “Crafter” sound like something my Great Great Grandma would do, or something my kids do at school.
I feel that the “Crafting” world has evolved into so much more than that. The talent that i see from “Crafters” these days astonishes me. The detail and passion and talent is so much more than something you would find in Great Grandma’s house or hanging on the fridge held together with elmer’s glue. (not that i don’t treasure those elmer glued projects from my children)
    I feel that as “Crafting” has evolved so to should our “professional name”. So I have decided that I am a "Creative Designer" that Creatively Designs.
   I refere to all my fellow “crafters” as “Creative Designers." Every person we consign at Simply Creative Boutique we refer to as a Creative Designer. 
  What do you all think? I am curious about your feelings on this subject?
