Hi! I am Megan & I am so excited you’re here!<3
Odyssey Designs is a place where my inspiration & creations come together! A little piece of our universe, where I share how I see & do things.
Like Alice, Harry, & Matilda I’ve always dreamed of going to another world. Of finding a place that is truly magical & abilities I didn’t know existed. After 23 years of waiting for my powers to manifest, I’ve come to realize that the closest thing to magic, is the power to create our own destiny. To take what we are given & make something beautiful in return.
Along my journey, or Odyssey if you will, I keep getting drawn to explore new places & learn new things! I hope that by sharing these experiences, it will be a bit easier for you to do the same. Simplifying the process, so you can appreciate the beauty in it!
Here you will find travel guides & re-caps from my various adventures! Everything from Backpacking Havasupai, Exploring Joshua Tree, Sustainable Living & Music Festival Tips! I tend to stick to nature, art, or music related activities. Always trying to treat every opportunity as new lesson, capture the beauty in it, & let it inspire me!
Which brings me to the other topic, Designs! I’ve tried a lot of hobbies, but the one that really stuck for me, is Crochet. I am always playing with new shapes & materials like Sustainable Crochet & Vintage Inspired Designs! By no means am I an expert, but that is half the fun.
Crochet has brought so much joy to my life. It has become a form of meditation & a way for me to get into my flow state. Fueling an energized focus & involvement, while still enjoying the process of the activity. With some practice, it has also become an outlet to express myself artistically. A way to see what magic I can create & share!
Learn To Crochet!
If you’ve never tried to fiber arts, their is no time like the present to give it a shot. Get started with the basics on YouTube like I did. Or if you’d like to do things in person, check out my upcoming classes & workshops! I never feel more confident, than when I am wearing something I made myself.
