Hello, World!

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.

  1. You're just that other Martha's evil twin! (I claim that distinction, too.)

  2. Welcome to blogging, Marti. That's a great name and all the better since you chose it yourself. (I know your Mum through Geneabloggers. I'd love it if my dear daughter blogged, I think, depending on what she said about me.)

  3. Thanks! Although, since I've been doing LiveJournal for a few years I'm not really "new" to blogging - I just decided to get my own space.

    And I just have to be careful what I say. ;)

  4. I am also a legal "Martha" Who chooses to be called Marti. My friends all call me, Marti, but I could never get my family to. I was just playing on my phone typed in Marti and this came up, cool...
