Cathy Zielske's take on December Daily.

This simple 6 x 4 album project is moving along nicely. I already have surpassed the progress of 2015, so I think this approach works for me. Here are a few more pages from the album. You know it’s been cold here, right? I know it’s been cold all over, but holy nut balls, when it gets below zero you … Read More

I’m sharing a few more pages today from my album. Again, I’m not really adding anything except the numbers from Ali’s kit and a handful of her digital files. I know it might seem like it’s a bit repetitive and not super crafty, but I’m loving the simplicity and am pretty sure I’ll finish the album this year. I shot the cards … Read More

Today I’ve  got a few more entries in my simple December Daily album. One thing I did for a few entries was take some of the digital papers from Ali Edwards’ digital kit and shrink them down to make 3 x 4 cards.  This gives me a way to use her fun patterns at smaller sizes. Let’s peek at the … Read More

A few more pages added to my album. Again, keeping it so simple it’s ridiculous… if you’re into simple, that is. Followed up a blue day with a story of figuring out what needed to happen. (And yep, privacy is required on this one.) The pattern is starting to form and I can’t see a reason to deviate. I like … Read More

December Daily, Day 5 (what if your days are a little blue?)

December 5th was a sucky day in general. Stuff happened, as it will in this life, that wasn’t really fun or bright or merry. I’m not going to go into the details and the reason is that some stories just need to stay in private spaces. Fair enough, right? But I think we all know what it’s like to have … Read More

I’m jumping in with Ali Edwards’ December Daily project for the fifth year and this year I am keeping it S-I-M-P-L-E. Why? Well, because last year I started my album with gusto and petered out around Day 14. I was making it to complicated and ergo, did not finish it. And it’s kind of a shame because it was really kind … Read More

I’m still playing a bit of catch up on this album project. I had a moment where I was all, “Do I really need to finish it this year?” and then I was all, “Um, yeah. You do.” Remember what you wrote the other day? I rest my case. Again, I found inspiration from a page Ali shared from her … Read More

I’ve fallen a bit off the daily path of making December Daily album entries, but today I’ll share a few of the pages to date. I’m really keeping it simple. There’s not a lot of crafty magic going on here, just a bit of digital know-how and some Minc action. (Yes, I am having way too much fun with the … Read More

Sometimes I get ideas when I walk. And I’m not talking about when I walk on the treadmill, or go around the lake by my house for exercise. Those walks include Netflix and podcasts. (I’ll let you figure out what goes with what.) I’m talking about the walking I try to do every morning while I wait for the coffee to … Read More

December Daily 2015—Day 8

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking5 Comments

Yesterday’s entry was all about Dan going down to visit our daughter on her campus in Southern Minnesota. Because it’s only about an hour away, it’s pretty easy to get down for a visit. I asked them one favor: get a photo of the two of you. They complied. Here’s a look at the full spread for Day 8. I … Read More
