Cathy Zielske's simple take on December Daily.

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 probably won’t keep up with it.

So rather than worry about making Days 22, 23 and 24, I just decided to say, “I’m good!” and throw in a few final photos and one summary card.

Here’s a short video overview with a few thoughts on making this album. Thanks, as always, to my dear friend Ali for creating such a cool concept for the holidays.


Own the story of your health and fitness in 2017 with Fit, an e-course from CZ Classes.
This is the week to sign up for Fit 2017, my year-long e-course designed to motivate and inspire you on your journey to better health and fitness in the new year.

One of the new things I’m adding to this year’s class are files to use in a Traveler’s Notebook format (standard size). I just like the idea of offering another creative way to track your habits and your emotions and the entire process of self care. I posted this image on Instagram the other day and people were giving me crap about the No Red Wine item. It made me laugh, truly, but the deal is this: red wine, as tasty as it is, gives me automatic hot flashes and then when the buzz hits, all bets are off with healthy eating and it’s HELLO BOWLS OF GOLDFISH CRACKERS. You get the point, yes?

This class is priced at $26 until January 1st. At that time, the price will go up to $31. Here’s the deal: I can’t give you the magic keys to a healthier life, but I can offer you the motivation to look at what makes you tick and how you can use the information to make better choices to fit your needs and lifestyle. I’m working on this stuff, too, and it’s not just about losing weight. I can promise you that. Sure, that’s a nice side effect, but connecting to a sustainable, healthy outlook is equally as important. Join me in 2017! I’ll be bringing you a new message every month of the year, plus participating in our online Facebook community.

    I’ve said it before but I love the example you’ve set with this album. Live life. Document it. Finish the album. Move on. Sometimes we’re in a place where we can create, create, create or write, write, write. And sometimes we just need to capture The Now and go on the next thing.

    I see so many people beat themselves up because they think their album is supposed to be something other than what it is: a time capsule of 25 days we get to live once and will never get back. However it gets documented is good enough.

    Love your album! I’m glad I didn’t try to do this this year. Between two weeks of -25 degree weather where you couldn’t do anything outside to being sick over Christmas weekend, it would have been another unfinished project! If I do it next year, I would definitely go with a small album like you. It’s neat, tidy and simple! Perfect!

    Thanks for the great video. My album is so similar to yours…simple, and I really like it. Same thing happened to me…almost at the same date….once 22 arrived, the rest was a blur with busy-ness. So doing the last photos today. Really enjoyed it…and so glad to that I did it simple and small. Happy new year! Thanks for all your inspiration!

    I have never done this, but you have inspired me to try for 2017. Loving the small album, keeping it clean and simple, another “new” for me , as I love to embellish my pages. All the best in 2017. Thanks for getting me through 2016.

    Loved the album!! I used the Project Life App this year and basically did what you did…one story a day. Love the little glimpse into the every day life of a busy holiday season!! Thanks for sharing!
