Interrogation::: Casey {The Wiegand's} + GIVEAWAY!!

Interrogation time y'all!

Today we have the lovely and sweet Casey from The Wiegand's! I met Casey a few months ago and I have to say she is one of the most beautiful and kind women I've met. You will all love her, I just know it :) Welcome Casey!




1. Tell us a little bit about you as a person

   My name is Casey Wiegand, I am a freelance artist, wife and mama.

   I love painting and sharing our life through my blog...where you can expect pieces of my perspective on life, faith, kids, marriage, with touches of art, creative inspiration, projects and things I love along the way. I have two little ones in the hopes of lots more and am married to the love of my life!



2. Tell us how/why you started The Wiegands?

   When I started blogging it was because I found this quote:

   "I find beauty in not only the beautiful things in life, but the bittersweet and sad as well. To me, there is something poignantly lovely about the human experience from its splendor to its grief. God created all our emotions, not just the happy ones, and for His good purposes. That's why a good cry can feel so good. And hitting our limits forces us to look outside ourselves for a Savior. It is in the plea, when we're at our end, that we can find that which is truly life-giving. Personally, my moments of deepest grief, deepest pain, have resulted in the most beautiful seasons in my heart. I've met God more intimately in those moments than in all the other pleasant ones combined. What isn't completely lovely about that?"
(Leslie, top of the page).

I was going through a hard time and something about this quote gave me hope. And peace. And then the entire blogging experience and community pulled me out. Into a better place.



3. What do you do when you're not blogging?

   I am painting, loving on my babies, going to the park/pool, or  hanging with my hubby!



4. What networking do you to that you feel most helps your blogging business?

   Finding blogs with involved readers (that I sponsor) really has helped me and doing the giveaways!



5. Who are some other bloggers that inspire you?

   I love Gussy, Little Miss Momma, Ash from the Shine Project- all these ladies really helped me starting out...there are so many though!


6. What are some of your favorite family activities?

   I love going to the zoo!



Silly Question:


What is something that you think there should be an award for but there isn't?

   I think there should be an award for people who are gracious with giving!




Thank you so much Casey for sharing with us!! Your photos are all so gorgeous and so are you! PS I really love that quote. It's amazing how God uses everything for his glory isn't it? :)

  9. My favorite posts from Casey are when she writes about her faith-she's always reminding us to put our worries and fear into God. To hand them over to Him because the end result is his doing-not ours and that no matter what He always comes through.

  15. I love Casey's heart and ministry that she has through her writing. She is transparent with her heart and what she struggles with. When I discovered her blog, I was immediately touched by her encouraging words from the Lord and her life experiences. She posts things I'm going through, and I feel truly blessed by her.
