radmegan in words & pictures


Known in craft circles as “Radmegan,” Megan O. Andersen has been crafting, baking, cooking, drawing, sculpting and gardening since she could hold a crayon. As a former member of corporate-America, she swapped her suit jacket for a non-stick smock in 2010 and hasn't looked back. She's an experienced marketing professional, craft show vendor, seasoned event coordinator, photography instructor,  Funny or Die prop-maker, and freelance writer who approaches every new craft with the same mantra, “how hard could it be?” Megan's goal for the blog, "In Words and Pictures"  is to provide crafts, recipes and inspiration to make every day a little more rad. 


She currently lives in Los Angeles with her loving husband and 500+ carnivorous plants she's raised by hand- but she dreams of someday owing a farm in the country with a craft studio, 2-story garage (for the Mr.) and ducks running wild in the garden.
