How Frequent Are Frequently Asked Questions Anway?

Sometimes I get asked a question over and over (or, do I?), so in an attempt to be open and honest... here is some more information about me:

Is there an address or PO Box I can reach you at?
Right now, no.  I'm in between a few places and haven't set up any sort of PO Box yet.  One day I will put down some roots and get my act together.

Do you offer advertisement or sponsorships?
I do!  I use PassionFruit ad program.  You can find more information on the far right sidebar, or click here.

Can I use a photo of yours to put on my own website?
You may, but you must give me proper credit and link back to where you found the picture and to my blog.

Can I use a tutorial of yours on my own website?
You may link to any tutorials of mine and can use one photo from the post.  You may not post an entire tutorial unless I have given you special permission ahead of time.

Why don't you have a link to your shop?
While I once had a shop for my handmade goods and another shop for my prints, I decided to limit these.  I am currently working up ideas for a potential new shop.  I will announce when the next shop will open on the blog and on Twitter.

What kind of camera do you use?
I use a Nikon D3100 with the kit lens at the moment.  Occasionally I will use my old hand-me-down Canon 35mm film camera which is from 1981 (I think). 

Who takes your pictures?
I do!  Unless otherwise noted, I take all my own photos.  When I take photos of myself it is with the camera's self timer.  I am admittedly not as skilled as most with the art of the self timer.

What do you do for a living?
Well, that's tricky.  I have a very unique (read: random) resume.  I am still a student, but in between you might find me featured as a waitress, cross-country cyclist tour guide, dog walker, beekeeper, goat sitter, part-time nanny, summer camp ____ (fill in the blank with nearly any job that could ever exist at a good old fashioned all girls New England summer camp, including but not limited to: archery instructor, bunny wrangler, professional role model extraordinaire), nuclear power plant decontaminator, graphic designer, and that's not even half of it.

Will you review one of my products?
I accept products for review on very rare cases.  I talk more about it on my advertise/sponsor page.  Feel free to email me ( with a proposal, but I will let you know in advance that I generally only accept if the product is super, unbelievably applicable to myself and my life.

Do you have any tattoos?
I do not.  Womp womp.

What is your natural hair color?
My hair is almost always its natural dark brown.

How did you learn to sew?
The first thing I ever purchased with my own money was a sewing machine.  I always knew I wanted to know how to make things, and from the moment I got the machine I would try to learn new things off and on.  That purchase was made in 2005 and I still use that same machine.

What kind of sewing machine do you use/recommend?
I use a Singer Advanced and it has served me incredibly well over the years.  I'm sure there are better options out there, but this one is all I know.  It is easy to use and so far has never given up on me.  In my opinion, it's a keeper.

Why Megan Ta Da?
Well... no special reason, really.  My name is Megan.  Did you know that?  And ta-da!  Ta-da is just one of my favorite phrases.  I especially like using it at the right time.  A well timed ta-da can be comedic gold when done right.  Also, it's been one of my favorite phrases since I made a friend from Australia who thought that it was a less formal way to say goodbye.  I think he was thinking of ta-ta, but I can't be sure.  Can you imagine someone genuinely leaving a room with a nice, friendly "ta-da!"?  Let me tell you, it will make you laugh.

If you had to choose another title, what would it be?
Probably something along the lines of Adventures Of Lazy Hand.  Not too long before starting things up here I had a smidge of misfortune by way of a tumbling bicycle and giving a Floridian sidewalk the best high five it had ever seen.  (That outlook is what I call turning a woops into a wahoo).  That landed me in a sling and splint, followed shortly by a sling and hard cast, followed shortly by surgery and sling, followed shortly by two more hard casts, followed by a very intense hard custom splint, followed by a couple months of physical therapy.  So I'll never be able to do a proper push-up, so what?  So I basically walk around these days with two non-dominant hands, so what?  Lazy hand makes things a bit more exciting.  Would you like me to pass you the ketchup?  There's a 50% chance it ends up on your clothes.  Need me to move that heavy box?  There's a 72% chance my stubborn self will say yes, but lazy hand will be quick to say no.  What's that, a bit of soreness?  A storm's a-brewin'.  Need a screw?  I've got that, but you'll have to go inside my wrist bone if you'd like to retrieve it.  I suggest seeking screwdom at your local hardware store.

How come you don't do more outfit posts?
In all honesty, I'm no trend setting fashion icon, and I'll never ever pretend to be.  I'm lucky if I remember to do my laundry, let alone curate perfect outfits on a daily basis.  I am usually always doing something that can result in a mess made, so I am generally always wearing work clothes.  I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal.  In fact, I'm a the-same-jeans-and-t-shirt kind of gal.  I have been known to wear one pair of jeans over and over and over and over again without fail.  I also get in the habit of circulating through three or four shirts with one of two extra layers when the colder days come.

How tall are you?
I'm 6 feet tall.  Though, the tallest I've ever been measured is technically 6' and .75".  So... average?

How old are you?
I am 24.

Where do you live?
I was born in Connecticut, raised in New Hampshire, and currently bounce up and down the East coast.  Currently I call Atlanta, Georgia home.

Where did you go to school?
When I was the ripe young age of 17 I packed my bags and moved to Savannah, Georgia.  I started at the art college down there and have still yet to finish.  I got in the habit of working full time during the Summers and Falls, and then going back to school for the Winters and Springs.  Then I started taking entire years off for work or internships or other adventures, but am happy to say that I am very nearly finished with an undergraduate BFA degree in Printmaking.

Who did your blog design?
I did!  This is my fun little project.  It may not be the best, but it is mine, all mine, and I like it.
