You know those people that you instantly feel close to? Like you've been friends for years and years because they just exude energy and make you feel like they care about you like family? That's Casey. She has an amazing heart and has captured the love of many bloggers in the past year. She blogs about life, art, inspiration, fashion, and what I appreciate most: she blogs about the hard stuff, not just the happy things of life.

Here is some of her work:

She is a stellar mom, a talented artist, runs A Little Artsy and her blog, The Wiegands.

Here's a bit from Casey, herself :)

*Hi! 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 am married to the love of my life and we have 2 sweet babies (in the hopes of lots more)!*
