Hello, hello! Come in, get settled. Would you like a cup of tea?! So lovely to meet you…
Hi, my name’s Parisa Roohipour and welcome to my little corner of the world…Lighting Little Fires. It is here that I:
» Explore the creative process in my post series ‘Stoke the Fire’ and let you know what I learn in the trenches as I attempt to make my living from the Arts and strive to live joyfully drenched in colour!
» Share with you my crafting adventures in knit and crochet, writing patterns, learning new techniques and touching squishy yarn! Every Friday I post ‘Crafty like a Fox’, a round up of all my fav patterns, inspiring crafters and community happenings in the Crafting Universe.
» Document my life as I endeavor to build my heart’s home on a foundation of creative expression!
About Me~ I’m from County Down in Northern Ireland and live in the most beautiful wee village on the coast. ~ I’m a Gemini…9th June to be exact, in case you want to send me a bday present! ~ I went to music college and have a degree in Music Production & Engineering and Vocal Performance. ~ I hope to make my living as a singer-songwriter but until then I also work as a freelance studio engineer and get obsessive about this blog! ~ My favourite job of all time (so far) was working in a wool shop in Brisbane. I got to teach people how to knit and crochet, troubleshoot patterns and talk about yarn ALL DAY! ~ I’ve lived in Ireland, India, Boston – USA, Brisbane – Australia and am currently in the process of moving to Vancouver – Canada. ~ I’m left-handed. ~ I love to write – poetry, articles, short stories, songs…aah, messing around with words… ~ I’ve crafted ever since I figured out that you could make jewelry from dry pasta shapes. ~ I learned to knit at 4 yrs old and crochet soon after. I credit these crafts with getting me through my degree course with my sanity intact! ~ I write my own original knit and crochet patterns and dabble in embroidery, cross-stitch, felting, painting and book-making. I really want to learn how to quilt. ~ I’m a Bahá’í.
