Research scientist with 2 cute puppies and a love of crafting that I enjoy sharing on my blog, The Crafty Scientist!
Introduction
I'm Mel the Crafty Scientist. I live in the Maryland/DC area with my boyfriend and our two incredibly adorable puppies (Max the black lab + cocker spaniel and Bella the pug + chihuahua + Yorkie).  I love crafting and sharing it all at my blog - The Crafty Scientist

If you've been reading the blog for awhile, you know that I started this thing when I was teaching and finishing up my Ph.D. in South Carolina. We moved up north in the summer of 2012 for a whole other adventure...

I'd love for you to check it all out on the blog! <3
