Heidi Little of the Arts Collaborative is hosting a free book discussion on Tuesday, February 9th and March 8th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Meredith, NH. This session’s book is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert – according to Heidi, Elizabeth presents a refreshing perspective on the elusive concept of creativity and inspiration. By exposing her unique beliefs and experiences on the subject, she offers the idea that we are visited by a spirit or genius who co-creates with us when we are open to perceiving and receiving. How cool is that?  If you are looking to embark on a creative project (literary, visual arts, culinary, scientific)…or just trying to engage in a more playful daily existence, you will find this book to be very empowering! Join in to discuss the book and to share your insights on creativity and inspiration. All the details and pre-registration info can be found at and by contacting Heidi at or 603-344-1860.

Laura Leslie of Linden Photography + Design recently got really vulnerable and we just had to share a blog post that she wrote. Sooo proud of you Laura!

“For years I was the one who, without fail, was always behind the camera, relying on the joke of “being the photographer, not the subject” to avoid being in front of the lens. I told myself that my family knew what I looked like and that was good enough. I shied away from any documentation of myself, especially when I wasn’t feeling particularly good—which happened more often than I’d care to admit. I believed that a bad hair day, a double chin, acne breakouts, or an unflattering angle trumped the importance of existing in a photo. And I went on feeling this way for many years, until one day I came face to face with looking back…sooner than I’d planned.” – Continue Reading HERE.
