HELLO INTERNETS! I suppose this makes me the proud owner of a brand new bouncing baby blog. I feel a little nervous. What do I even say? Perhaps now is the appropriate time to explain why a blog for this lady scientist…
I am a full time PhD student with a serious case of craft blog envy. Sadly for me, there aren’t enough hours in the day to do the lab work that my advisor expects of a graduate student AND to hand piece a quilt with reproduction depression-era fabrics. Maybe a blog will provide the creative outlet I am looking for? I hope so. Also, just to warn you, there may be a little bit of OMG SCIENCE IS SO AWESOME time. You don’t go and try to get a PhD in biology without loving science.
So hopefully we can all try and learn something here. I will post links to crafts I wish I had time to do well and others can learn what not to do by looking at my example. And when I try to talk about science, y’all can help me not be too poindexter-ish. Let me leave you with a link to a talk by a scientist that I think is awesome, Ms Bonnie Bassler.
i’ve got science to do kiddies. see ya later!
