This is partially a test of how the posting mechanism for Blogger works and partially a bit of introduction.
So what's up with the title, "Marti, not Martha"? Well a few things.
First, my legal name is Martha, but I am Marti. I tried using my full name once in school and I realized I just don't feel like a Martha.
Secondly, yes, I admit to a little jab at a rather famous Martha, and I am certainly not her. I like crafty things, but I am certainly not perfect. And I don't have near the time to do a tithe of the crafty things I'd like to do!
You will see a cast of recurring characters in my life. The main players are: Son, Hubby, Dad, Mom and AuntE (my sister). The secondary characters are my in-laws (mother, 4 brothers - 2 of which Hubby's brothers the other 2 are married to ->, 2 sisters, a niece and 2 nephews), AuntS (Dad's sister). Beyond these are a handfull of cousins, various friends and co-workers. Other characters will wander in and out, I'm sure.
