Meet a Community Member ~ Cassie Wasem
Cassie started her blog out as a family blog to keep their out of town relatives up to date with what was going on and to share pictures of their daughters. From there she grew it. She realized she had more to share, and she wanted to share it. In May of 2010, Cassie re-branded her blog and set it up fresh and new. She decided on the name Crazy & Cool with a side of Crafty for a couple reasons. One, because she feels it describes her well, and two, because Caelyn is crazy, Chloe is cool, and she (Cassie) is crafty. She loves to write about her family and what is going on, as well as the crafty things she does. She also loves sharing things she is passionate about, for example Disney, organ & tissue donation, awareness, and local St. Louis things.
What has been your favorite campaign with Social Fabric?
My favorite campaign has been the Thanksgiving Centerpiece. I created a 3D centerpiece and had the help of my girls. I was able to teach them the meaning of being thankful, and we had such a great time creating the piece together and making the list of all those we are thankful for.
What do you enjoy most about the Social Fabric Community?
I love the community of people. I have met so many new people that have helped me grow so much since I started blogging. I love that everyone is so friendly and helpful here. I look forward to learning so much more from everyone and the wonderful opportunities that are offered at Social Fabric.
Please share a link from a campaign you have participated in so we can all go check it out!

Any fun or interesting facts about yourself or your blog that you would like to share with the world?
I have 17 years of softball experience. Fifteen of those years, I took private pitching lessons. I also played 4 years of Division 3 college softball; I pitched and played third base.
I have an older sister who received a double lung transplant. She had Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. She passed away one year after transplant, but she was able to live completely free of complications for 6 months after transplant. In those 6 months, it was the first time in years that she was able to actually walk a shopping mall without having to use oxygen or sit down to take a break. In January 1998 we went to Disney World as a family after her transplant and had the best vacation ever!
If you were sent to a deserted island with one other person, who would it be and what 3 things would you bring with you?
My husband, he is my best friend. I would also take a photo album with all my loved ones in it and my cell phone. I hope they have 3G there. =)
