Cathy ZielskeFree Downloads, Scrapbooking19 Comments

I have just a short post about Days 4 & 5. I’m keeping this project pretty simple thus far, which is the way I like it and the reason I’m able to keep up with it. One day, one story. The cool part is that if the story corresponds to the actual day, great. But if it doesn’t, I’m not … Read More

(You can still order her goodies and have them for your December projects.) I was all set to do a 6 x 4 album (because the album is really adorable) but then … Read More

Yesterday this arrived in my inbox and I pretty much freaked out. True, Target is a little behind the times in their stag usage, but the catalog cover is just sublime as is the content inside. They may shame me on my lack of Red Card usage, but I will never not bow down to their graphic designers. As soon … Read More

I know what you’re thinking: Halloween is WEEKS away. But to me, it’s as good as here! As soon as Labor Day passes, I get all feverish, dreaming of getting ready for All Hallow’s Eve.  It’s just my thing.

I have been sick all week with a nasty cold. Maybe it was that whole release after dropping Aidan off at college. Or maybe it was that heinous cold she has just the week before. Whatever the case, I’ve been working with tea, Kleenex, cough syrup and Advil as my office mates. Last week on Facebook, I posed a question about … Read More
