Bitch of the Month: Megan the girl wonder


What is your craft?
I mostly make jewelry and what not. My big thing is sweater clips right now. I also dabble in sewing, knitting, crocheting, and all sorts of general crafts.
Why do you craft?
I craft because that's what I do. It's who I am. And you know what they say, "Idle hands are the devils playground"
What are your sources of inspiration?
Everything around me. I'm a big fan of people watching and just pick up things from everyone. I also take a lot from classic old movies, comic books, horror movies, and all kinds of stuff from the past. A big inspiration is the 1950s.
What is your favorite beverage?
Vanilla coke I am so happy they brought it back. I've always been known to enjoy me some King Cobra. Hahha!
Where do you buy your favorite beverage?
Jewel usually. Or the random shady liquor store for the King Cobra.
How did you come up with your business name?
I've always been a fan of the word swindle, and well it just kicks ass as a business name. It's a shame a lot of people don't get it though.
What is your weapon of choice?
I've found a knitting needle to the eye can take even the burliest man down.
What would you be doing otherwise?
Being a mindless zombie. Eating brains and the like. No but really I can't think of what I would be doing. Crafting is such a part of my life, I don't go a day without it.
Do you have any advice for other crafters?
Keep on truckin'. Don't let the man get you down. You know the usual lines. No but seriously keep at it, the worst thing you can do is stop crafting. The world needs more DIY.
Any final last words?
Sometimes I wish I could boldly go where no man has gone before... but I'll probably stay in Chicago.
