Hi! I’m Cat and I’m the voice behind Mary Martha Mama. According to my husband, if they made a Barbie of me she’d have a glue gun in one hand and a laptop in the other.
I’m originally from Virginia and I’m still adjusting to life in Ohio even though I’ve lived in Akron for almost 8 years. Winter is colder than I would prefer but I’m choosing to look on the bright side and think of it like an extended vacation. I’m enjoying exploring like a tourist and taking in all that Ohio has to offer.
In my former life I was a teacher but currently I’m a stay-at-home mom to our two sons. On any given day you can find us out exploring the Metroparks, running around our backyard playing super heroes, or inside making lego creations. I spend a lot of time playing legos.
I’m pretty crafty and I like to sew. I started an Etsy shop and to promote it I started a blog. Eventually sewing for my shop got a little repetitive and I began to enjoy the blogging part more than making the same items over and over.
After hemming and hawing for a few years I began my current blog, a place where I can share about the crafts I make, random thoughts, and a little about my life. I’m not an expert on anything and in the early days I questioned myself. “Who am I to speak about _________ ?”.
But I love reading other people’s blogs and I’ve come to realize that we all have something to bring to the table. I’m not the best seamstress but I’m still going to share the projects I sew. I’m not a chef, but I’m going to share my recipes. I’m not the best mom ever, but I’m going to share a little about my life as a mom.
And so with everything I share on my blog I hope that I inspire you to maybe try something new, encourage you as a mom or dad, and help you by sharing projects, ideas, and experiences from my life.
