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 with the hopes of lots more and am married to the love of my life!
I am so thrilled and honored to be here today guest posting. When Katie asked me to post about staying inspired I thought about it all afternoon, what should I write?
My life revolves around creativity. I am a blogger (here), I am an abstract artist (here), we own an art studio for kids (here), my husband is a photographer and makes movies and I also do blog design (here). So being completely honest a lot of times I am just burnt out!
I am constantly creating.
So maybe the trick is to let ourselves have a break...then in a moment we don't expect it, we will be re.inspired. A fresh tube of paint, feet hitting the pavement on an evening run, the first snow of winter, a great song on the radio with the windows down, a late night sitting on the kitchen floor talking with your husband about dreams. These are the moments that I run and write out a blog post or grab my paintbrush.
But you know it's okay to not feel inspired or creative all the time. That is exhausting. And sometimes we need to cut ourselves a break.
We will come back better, more creative.
If you have been in a rut for awhile I say get back to what you love. For me I would go sit by a lake and watch the sunset, I would put a good song on the radio and dance with my babies, I would eat waffles on my back porch or look through pictures on pinterest.....then maybe somewhere along the way....you will find it again.
