Scrapbook Your Year, my pages for January + February 2020

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking3 Comments

With a little extra time on my hands these days, I figured it was time to get back into my year-long scrapbook project that I call Scrapbook Your Year.

If you are unfamiliar with how I document life in the modern age, here is a video showing you last year’s finished, printed book:

The system is a simple, no-frills way of saving photos and a few words. I like the simplicity of it and once you get the digital part down, it’s really quite simple. Here are my pages for January and February.

I had less than 100 photos each month to choose from. I think I am taking less photos than ever before.

On the first page for each month, I try to include the whole fam, but I have very few pics of the boy Zielske of late. It’s fine. I know he still exists.

In mid January, I was in the greater Seattle area for my best friend’s mom’s memorial. This was before the events in Kirkland unfolded. I decided to not write my journaling as if I didn’t know what was going to happen here in the U.S. this month. I feel it will make sense in the larger scheme of documenting 2020.

For February, I had even fewer photos, so I only created 2 pages.

And here is the wrap up page:

And that gets me caught up for 2020, until March wraps up.

I feel this year is one of those years we won’t soon forget, as what is happening is unprecedented in many of our lifetimes.

I’ll share my March pages in a few weeks as well. To learn more about my approach, read about the Scrapbook Your Year e-class here. Save $11 off the price through March 31, 2020.

    Love this process! My goal is to order my 2019 book by the next weekend. And get 2020 caught up. Loved how you combined Jan/Feb and the CV story will tie everything together.
    Has anyone else said Aiden’s friend looks like a younger version of the dad on This is Us? They are cute.
    Stay strong and thanks for your inspiration.

      Oh my! He actually does, doesn’t he? He and Aidan have been dear friends since the 7th grade. A good egg, that one. He usually drops by unannounced and visits, but won’t be for a while now, I would imagine.

    Hi Cathy.
    I would love to get a shirt like your “I’m doing my best” one. I know you did it through Redbubble but not sure if a. You created it and have the design for sale, or b. You bought it directly from them. Either way I would love to know how to get one. Thanks
