Welcome to Make Something Mondays!
It is nice to meet you. My name is Megan and I am a graphic designer. Actually, I consider myself a creative; graphic designer is just my career title but I am so much more than that. I started drawing when I was very young and that developed into a habit. Yes, drawing is a habit just like biting your nails or twirling your hair. Drawing was where it started but it slowly progressed into painting, printmaking, 3D and digital design. Before I knew it I was graduating from college with a degree in fine arts.
All my life people have said “Oh, you are so talented; I wish I could do what you do”. Well, I am going to show you how. I will give you a step by step tutorial for everything I make so you will be an artist before you know it. I called my blog Make Something Mondays because I hate Mondays. If I make something I enjoy every Monday then maybe I will think more highly of the day. Hopefully your Mondays will become just a bit brighter as well. 🙂

I have been awarded the Liebster blog Award and would like to now pass it on to you.
Thank you 🙂 So much!
The title of your blog reminds me of a friend of mine. She does something she calls “Making Mondays” where she invites as many creative people over to her house as she can, and we all get together and work on our various projects. Recently we’ve been doing it on Fridays because everyone has been busy on Mondays (*sad*), but it’s still the same idea. Lots of fun and it gets everyone motivated!
I like it. I wish someone would do that here. I would present every week! Thanks!
You could always start it! =)
I suppose I could do that 😉
Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed.
It is well deserved…
Oh, I didn’t even know I was… Thank you! Haha, I was wondering where all of these people were coming from. I appreciate the heads up. That was nice of you.
you are so creative 🙂
The Mamas and Papas had a great song about Mondays. Mondays are a state of mind and I think it’s fabulous that you have dedicated effort to make something good out of a usually maligned day of the week.
Thank you. I do my best. I appreciate your noticing and commenting, it means a lot.
i hate mondays too…you are right …maybe if i did something that i like on every Monday..i can get through the day…
It helps me out! Hopefully it will do the same for you. Thanks!
I love reading your blog – fun and interesting posts! That’s why I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger award on day 128 of my creativity challenge. Keep up the good work!
AWw that is so sweet of you! Thank you very much! I enjoy your blog as well, it is good stuff 🙂
Howdy! I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Find out more here: http://icklekins.wordpress.com/2012/03/12/the-versatile-blogger-award/
Please accept this award in the spirit of the nomination! Thank you for creating such a unique, fun blog! Keep posting!
Thank you!!!! 🙂 You are too kind.
You are becoming an award magnet and deservedly so. I enjoy your diverse and lively content and so I pass on the ABC award–Awesome Blog Content Award. I don’t know what the protocol and procedure is on receiving such an award, but now that you’ve received it you can pass on the history (and honor) as you have your others. Have you thought about posting your award “brags” in your sidebar? Eh, if you’ve got it flaunt it.
Thank you very much! I appreciate it and will look into both the history and the side bar links. They are beginning to add up and it would be nice to have something like that. 🙂

Hope this tip helps and more power to your blog.

Hello from New York. I have 55 blogs total 🙂
Hello from PA! That’s a lot of blogs!
Hi Megan. Thank you for following Bluefish Way, I will add another one to your impressive tally of followers. I would like to look around your blog if I may. Ralph x
You are very welcome. You have an interesting blog as well. Thank you for the compliments. It is very much appreciated.
And you are welcome. I have enjoyed reading your posts. The cork one is a lot of fun especially having to go through many, many bottles of wine before creating the projects 😉 Ralph x
Haha, it’s a good thing if you like wine!
True. I don’t drink at home, only at BBQ’s, fiestas and parties, which are good times to collect corks 😀
I nominated you for the Very inspiring Blog award. Keep on going.
Megan, I have really enjoyed getting your blog the last six months or so since I began following you. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and really look forward to what you have in store for the new year. Some day if you are interested I would love to share my art with you. I am sure you get that a lot so I won’t push it 🙂
That’s very nice of you thank you! I will try my best to make the new year interesting!
I would love to see your art. Please do share it!
Megan, I can’t figure out how to post them on this blog but I have all my pics on facebook you are welcome to friend me or if there is an email you would prefer I would be delighted to email them to you. You have inspired me to start my own art blog so I will soon have them up on Word Press too 🙂
Aww, that’s great! I’m glad to hear I’ve inspired you! I would love to see it when it is up and running 🙂
You can send the artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m excited to see your work!
Hi Megan, as promised here is the link to the new blog. It is in its infantile stages as I try to figure out how all this works 🙂
I am liking it so far! Keep up the good work 🙂 I will be back to visit.
Nice reading about you Megan.
Thanks. I invite you to visit my blog Ajaytao2010@wordpress.com. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may definitely find something of your interest.
Greetings from Australia Megan
Graphic design is a great profession to be in; I chose to study photography because it allowed me to travel and photograph that which I loved and experienced. There is a great course here in my native city which I’d have loved to have participated in on a part time basis had it been offered as such. I was most impressed by the calibre of the work, and so much creative potential. All the best on your journey through life.
Thank you. Graphic design is pretty enjoyable. It opens up a lot of opportunities for me and I very much enjoy the creative aspect. I really feel like I go crazy when I’m not creating anything. So, it was a perfect field for me.
Photography is also very enjoyable. One of my closest friends is a photographer and an awesome one at that. I’m glad you found something you enjoy! I will be checking out your blog. I bet you have some great stuff on there. 🙂 Thanks for checking out my site!

Thank you! Appreciate it!
Love your blog!! Following you!!
Thank you! I appreciate it. I will be checking yours out shortly 🙂
Hi Megan, thank you so much for the follow, it really is so appreciative and I glad you like my site. Unfortunately I studied Maths / Business, good at computers, worked in finance for over 20 years….. The good news is that it must be time for all that pent up creativity to come bursting out – well to be truthful a number of people have been saying I should share more of my photos, but I hope the blog can bring more than just a few pics. Just been looking more at the street art post and have to say this is one of the best posts ever. Fantastic. No really. Reasons to follow (and by the way I don’t just give a follow if someone happens to follow me!).
Have a great week. MM 🍀
Hello! Thank you for following! I appreciate it as well, sincerely. Being in the business and tech industry is not a bad thing. Believe it or not, you probably DO have a lot of creative build up. I’m excited to see what you produce!

Thank you for stopping over as well! I’m glad you liked that post. I enjoy your blog and will definitely be back.
Thank you for following my blog. I know how many interesting blogs are out there and feel honored that you picked mine to follow. I hope my stories entertain and inform and my photos bring you joy and wonderment.
I travel mostly local but try to always find interesting places. I have lived in several different places and dig through my archives of photos to bring glimpses into places I have been. Sometimes I post a recipe because food tells a lot about culture.
I am not a professional photographer, so my photos are sometimes a little fuzzy and there are telephone poles and wires and other things along with what I was photographing. The older photos are 35mm, the newer are point and shoot digital and a few are Samsung Smartphone.
I am new to blogging so if you have any advice or critique please drop me a comment.
Thank you again for following and to quote Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

Hello! It is so nice to meet you! Thank you for the comment. I love learning about my followers, so I really appreciated the tidbits.
You’re photography is beautiful, professional or not.
The best advice I can give you is to build a community of followers. Your followers become just as important as the content you post, so make sure you treat them well. This is a great start, by the way.
Keep in touch, I would love to know how you are doing.
Thank you and I like your blog also.
Thank you very much! That’s sweet of you!
Nice blog “Monday” (I mean Megan) although I’m a steady Garfield follower!
