Christine Koh


I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative. I'm the founder + editor of Boston Mamas, co-author of Minimalist Parenting, co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and creative director at Women Online. Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

Make It Crafty


I am a craft nerd. One of these days I’ll unveil my design site to you all; I love when special occasions arise so I can design paper goods (e.g., invites, announcements, stationery, memory books or boxes) or sew cute little felt animals onto shirts and blankets.

Not surprisingly, I was intrigued when my friend Andrew suggested I check out Craft. Craft was launched by Make (a project guide for science/tech gurus), and focuses on the art and science of all things crafty.

The neuroscientist in me couldn’t help but appreciate Craft’s recent post on The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art. Marjorie Taylor and Karen Norberg’s creations are inspired by research from neuroscience and dissection. Shown here is their construction of the two cerebral hemispheres (separated), cerebellum, and spinal cord.

OK, I'm afraid this post evidences that I'm a nerd twice over.
