Make a Page Monday: Favorite 12 Photos of the Year

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking2 Comments

STORY OF THE PAGE: I’m a sucker for a good list, and last week I designed a digital template to celebrate my favorite 12 photos from 2016. I approached it very methodically: I looked at each month from my Scrapbook Your Year project, and picked my favorite shot from that month. I added one descriptive line for journaling. I repeated … Read More

January is well underway, my friends, and here a few things I’m doing. Adding a bit of weight lifting into my weekly routine. Last year, a friend recommended I pick up Strength Training, Exercises for Women, from DK Publishing, and I have to say, it’s a great resource for those of you who try to exercise at home. I have … Read More

And here we go with another year of memory keeping. I started scrapbooking in 2003. Or was it 2002? I think it was the former. Either way, that is a hella long time to have a hobby and actually keep up with it. It started innocently enough by walking into a local scrapbook store and then finding an online community … Read More

Scrapbook Your Year with Cathy Zielske.

Last week, the album I spent all of 2016 assembling finally arrived fresh from the printer and into my eager hands. And yep, I am in love. The album is exactly what I’d hoped for: a year in the life that is both comprehensive and easily digested. 50 pages of memories is exactly my cup of tea, ladies. And I have a … Read More

Two things you should know about this photo: I took it myself. I hadn’t taken a shower yet, ergo, the alfalfa hair style in the back. My closet door is much closer to white than would appear. Oh wait. That’s three things. Ladies, let’s be real here: math is not why I was put on this earth. That said, 6 days … Read More

My One Little Word for 2017

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life13 Comments

If you’ve never heard of Ali Edwards’ One Little Word project you may have been living under a big-assed, memory keeping rock for many years. I say that in all fun, but her idea is a fantastic concept and literally thousands of women have joined in over the years. I’m no exception. While I don’t technically DO the class content, I … Read More

Cathy Zielske's simple method to documenting your year one month at a time.

And just like that, I have wrapped up one year of my life in a scrapbook for 2016. (Okay, not just like that—it did take a full year of living, right?) But I have completed one year using my simplified approach to documenting life, one month and four pages at a time. Here are my pages for December 2016. I … Read More

My blog’s Best of 2016 as voted by me

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life17 Comments

It’s that time again when I go through my year of posts and pick out the ones I think were either a) good, b) decent, or c) worth another look. You should know this is a relatively subjective process that I try to do annually. One thing I’m fully aware of as I look back, this past year I posted … Read More

December Daily 2016, the video wrap up

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking9 Comments

Cathy Zielske's simple take on December Daily.

I did something a little unconventional to wrap up this album project. The last pages I made were for Day 21, and then I kind of stopped doing the nightly recounting of the day. Here’s what I’ve learned about me: if it’s some sort of daily project and I don’t keep up or at the very least keep notes, I … Read More
