Are You Drawsome?! – A chat with Mara Belzer

Holy Creativity, Batman! I am so excited to share my very first interview podcast with you. I’m all about the talking…and the sharing…and the integrating. So it was about time I got this party started.

I got chatting to Mara Belzer, creator of ‘Be Drawsome’ – a 30 day practice of self-discovery through drawing for Artists and non-Artists – about the benefits of doodling, self-transformation without the legwork and creative self-care (hint: it might involve new stationary!)

:: How do you plan to bring the element of ‘doodling’ into your creative endeavors?
:: How do you show yourself impeccable self-care while being creative?

We’d LOVE to hear! Let us know in the comments below…

‘Be Drawsome’ kicks off TOMORROW so nip over here for more info and sign up on the double!

And check out some of Mara’s seriously impressive doodling-handiwork on Instagram, @poodlecat, #bedrawsome. You’ll even find a few of my own early efforts there too, @parisaroohipour.

From Me, With Love – An invitation to go deeper…

I’ve had a little brainwave – a little moment of clarity – and a deep, hungry want to get cozy with you on a subject that’s been holding my attention recently.

I wanna talk tarot. I want to get the conversation started on intuition and creativity. I want to explore the sub-conscious and feel in awe of our depths. And I want to do it with you!

I realize this topic isn’t for everyone and right now I’m looking to re-vamp LightingLittleFires with an eye to more musings on Art-making and Creativity in Everyday Life, as well as my own Artsy endeavors.

Tarot Newsletter

So I’ve created a newsletter, dedicated to the metaphysical discussion, full of original content that I won’t be publishing on LightingLittleFires. If you’re game, I’ll pop into your inbox every New and Full Moon (not sure when the next newsletter is? Why, just look out your window!)

Sign up below and look out for the first installment this Wednesday!


And, hey, if it’s not for you no worries! That’s the beauty of the ‘opt-in’…the decision is yours!
