summer colors & a leap of faith

*all these pieces will be up for grabs!
My show is Thursday and I cannot wait!! If you havent bought a ticket yet, I would love to see you/ meet you!!!!
(click button to buy tickets)

Another thing I have been excited to share with you all is that Christopher and I are taking two big leaps of faith this month. It seems like we are always taking big risks to follow what we believe God is telling us to do…it is always just as scary though! The first one is we have rented out a new A Little Artsy space and are reopening our studio! If you have no idea what that is here is a video of me talking about the business Chris & I started!

(scroll all the way to the bottom to turn off blog music)

We temporarily closed our first location when Ainsleigh was on the way. We just needed to re.think our cost structure, find people that we could hire for various positions and all together ask God what His plans were for the studio. This business is a ministry for us and we always want to have open hands with it. 

So we have taken a leap of faith, in hopes that after a year off…kids will come back! 
If you are in the DFW area, we offer kid’s classes, adult classes, adult art nights, birthday parties, private lessons and mommy & me classes! Our other leap of faith will be in a post coming soon :)!

    Everything is GORGEOUS and inspirational. so beautiful! I am so happy for your new bundle to arrive…lately I have been struggling with the reality that I will not be able to give Little Miss S a sibling and it breaks my heart, BUT it is so refreshing to see someone like you, who truly treasures their babies!

    Much love and many blessing to you dear girl!

    Your art work is beautiful and amazing. I am so impressed with your talents. Wow! Are any of those pieces for sale in your shop or are they all for the show? I am going to try and make it to the show, but I'm not 100% about that.

    So excited for you – the show, the shop, and the baby!!! I don't know if you'll remember this, but one night while you and Chris were working to open the first shop..around Christmastime, I walked by with my parents and with Trent — do you remember? Anyways, I'll always remember that night because it was the night I actually introduced Trent to my parents…less than a month into dating! I'm continually inspired by you – your life and Trent always knows who I'm talking about when I mention you because of that night! Super excited y'all get to re-open!! Blessings friend =)

    Casey, I love your blog. You are such an inspiration to me and my family. I have two beautiful little girls that I love to death and my husband and I have been praying about when to have number three, which will hopefully be soon! I am so excited for you and I think it is great that you include God in everything you do. You're a great momma and there isn't a better person to bring these little spirits into the world than you! So congrats! By the way, I am new to your blog, but I am just curious how close your first two children are? Mine are 14 months and 3 weeks apart but I wouldn't have it any other way…I love it!!

    Wow. I've just been following your blog for about a week, but that video got me. Especially when you yourself got emotional, I was fighting the tears.
    I think your business is amazing, wonderful, inspirational and moving. I love what you're doing for children and I love your means of doing it.
    I hope everything works out so that you may continue with this project. I can't wait to see this all play out for you.
    I wish you the best of luck and will definitely keep it in my prayers.

    I can't believe I've been following your blog and had no idea you were from the DFW area. I already have plans for this Thursday night or I totally would have wanted to check it out! Your faith really inspires and encourages me – it's so refreshing to hear from someone stepping out in faith and taking chances, trusting God despite circumstances.

    Hi Casey,
    Ive recently starting following you're blog but since I'm not the most active blogger I rarely comment. But after that video, I had to tell you that I think what you and Chris are doing is amazing. Your studio is going to change kids lives for the better. You are so passionate about what you love and that will rub off on others. Keep changing lives! God bless A Little Artsy.

    I loved that little video about your place for art. I hope that it becomes just as magical as it once was. And I have to say that it was really cool to see your eyes, and face with out the shades on, or the make up, although you look great with it on too ( I LOVE eye make up myself)… I feel like in that video I saw a glimpse of YOU. 🙂 Very cool.

  49. Peggy

    August 11th, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    How exciting! We have friends who have just moved to DFW and I think she would really enjoy stopping by once you are up and running!! Once you have the location and hours up I will most definitely pass it one to them. I'll be praying for your leaps of faith!!

    I can't describe how you made me feel. You made me cry.
    It's one of the most beautiful things you can do and it's so great to see how much time you put in it to be there for these kids and help them express themselves and just make them happy. I love you guys.
