And so this little gratitude album project is in the homestretch. Only four more days left in this month to complete the project and I’m happy to say that I am perfectly caught up with it.

Today I’m sharing my third installment of 30 days of Thankful album pages. This little project is chugging along. My approach has been to make sure I do one and treat each day, regardless of what’s going on in my life. I even had one night last week that I was already settled in for the night and thought, you … Read More

Here’s another installment of my 30 Days of Thankful album entries. I made a decision last week that I am going to create a 5 x 5 softcover printed book from Artifact Uprising with these files. I am going to do this for the sake of time. This just makes more sense for saving time because is soon as my … Read More

Today I am going to begin sharing some of my album entries for my 30 Days of Thankful project for 2017. This year’s project has taken on a decidedly different tone as one week ago today, I fell in my garage and fractured my hand which resulted in a lovely black cast. After a few days of feeling sorry for … Read More

November is almost here, friends, and with it comes a little project I’ve been doing since 2012 called 30 Days of Thankful. The idea behind it is simple: document something  you’re grateful for every day for a month. Or every other day. Or every week. Take a photo for each item. Or don’t. This project is really what you make … Read More

And so my album is done. The only reason I finished it right on time? I kept the format simple and didn’t overthink this process. I like simple. You guys know this. And making one little entry a day for me, and using my iPhone to take the photos… well, that’s my kind of simple. Today I’m sharing the last … Read More

This album project is winding down with just a few more days left in the month! Today I’ll share a few more entries and I’ll wrap it up this Friday.

This project is moving nicely along. I cannot stress how having a predefined framework helps me to just focus on the content entries and not on making design decisions. Here are more pages from the album. I cannot believe how much Cole is photographically showing up in this album. The other day he said to me, “I like running errands, … Read More

30 Days of Thankful with Cathy Zielske

My 30 Days of Thankful continues. I’ve found a daily rhythm for creating entries. One thing that helps? I just don’t reinvent the wheel. It’s a consistent spread from day to day. It brings a real sense of order to this project and lets me focus on what I want to include. Here are the last seven days. Nothing like … Read More
