Introducing Cathyoke

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life40 Comments


I have two Instagram accounts.

This one (for my personal life stuff).

And this one (for my crafty, scrapbook-y related stuff).

From time to time, I have been known to do a little karaoke on my @czdesign Instagram Story. Stories are fun because you can post silly stuff and then it’s gone in 24 hours. Unless you SAVE IT! I had no idea you could save Insta Stories. Now I do.

Yesterday, I was celebrating the launch of Design Your Life 2.0 by taking karaoke requests. The following video is what resulted. I would say you’re welcome, but honestly, I don’t nail every song, not by a long shot, and one of them goes on WAYYYY too long. But this is what I do in the privacy of my super hot office to celebrate the culmination of a lot of work.

People always scoff when I tell them I’m a bit of an introvert, and this isn’t really helping my case. But keep in mind: I’m all alone, in my my office, un-showered and bra-less, doing this stuff. That alone should at least count for something on the scale of strange, am I right ladies?

And yes, I’m still taking requests, in case you’re wondering.



And in case you needed a reminder, Design Your Life 2.0 is open for registration! Save $5 off the $45 workshop price through July 14th. Registration closes on July 25. Click on the image above for the complete class description.

    The outfit changes really set the mood! Thanks for making my day. (It’s like Bee Dance in July.)

    Love how you didn’t have to look at ANY of the words for Hamilton. Got that one down pat. Awesome show! (insert lighter here) πŸ™‚

    Girl, you’re hysterical!! I look forward to your insta stories daily especially the karaoke ones. Even on my worst days, you always manage to put a smile on my face. Do you do country? How about some Shania Twain? Man, I feel like a woman!

    Any time I think I can’t love you any more… then you come up with this, especially with all the costume changes – holy shitballs! Eternally yours….

    nailed it! that was hilarious. such a variety of songs and genres. I used to know all the words to Little Red Corvette, even the sexual uh-uh-uh’s and squeals Prince sprinkles in all throughout. I loved that you dressed up to some of the parts. You truly crack me up. I can’t believe no one asked for REM’s It’s the End of the World as We Know It. Maybe next time?

    The Grunge bands were angry about the lyrics to NKOTB songs! As a 90s boy band fan, I can even admit that they leave a LOT of room for growth. You killed it Cathy, no matter the genre:)

      I second Ice Ice Baby!

      Would also love It’s All About that Bass or Shake it Off – I’m laughing just thinking about it. πŸ™‚

    Loved it! But why did I immediately think… is she using a ‘woman’s self-enjoyment tool’ as a fake mike? 🀣 Whoops… no… it might be a mini-fan. (sorry if that was offensive to anyone)

      You and SEVERAL other people made a similar comment. I believe the word one person used was “vibrator with wings”. Dying! That is my mini fan I keep at my desk. #hotflashes

    You go, girl! Was watching this at 12:30 a.m. and the hubs was wondering what the hell I was laughing at. Don’t think he’d understand if I sang along like I wanted to! Love this. Definitely need MORE! You are so awesome! I was just looking at your Instagram and it was like looking at dear old friends–I was there back at the beginning of your scrap career when your amazing kids were small. They sure have grown up beautifully!

    Shall I pass your name on to my cousin? Her husband and she are the producers of Rock of Ages, you could sing the Journey songs πŸ˜‰

    Cathy – you got me into scrapbooking … must be over a decade ago now. I decided back then I was never going to get into heat embossing, card-making or Jennifer McGuire ink pad swatch organising … and guess what … I’m hooked on them all too !
    My Cathyoke request … The Feast and the Famine by … well … you know who its by ! And could you do the air guitar riffs too please . Not letting you off lightly πŸ˜‰

      The Feast and the Famine? Why am I not connecting to who that is by? Is it because I’m losing brain cells by the day? I’m going to have to look it up!

          Oh my God, is that their new album? You KNOW I love me some Dave, but I haven’t bought it yet. I know, I’m HORRIBLE.

            NO – you’re not horrible at all – just busy ! I think it was from their Sonic Highways album. I’ve just paid silly money for some tickets to go see them In September as they’re doing a one off gig here in London … and I’m taking my son – I just love the fact that he’s loves them too . I think he’s worried though that I’ll embarrass the life out of him by singing along … but I reckon that’s a Mum’s job !
