Project Life, Week Forty-Nine

OBSERVATIONS: I am loving the holiday look and feel to this month's pages. Yes, there's a little crossover with my December Daily stuff, but that's okay by me.  This week, before we got hit with a foot or more of snow, I gathered my family together for a picture on our front steps. Even though the light color of my … Read More

Project Life, Week Forty-Eight

OBSERVATIONS: I've been on a little tear this month (I know, it's only a few days old), in terms of bumping up our holiday décor. In short, I've been spending a little on yours truly. And something I bought last week (okay, it doesn't really fall into the décor category) are the stamps you see above (uppercase and lowercase) from … Read More

OBSERVATIONS: The year is winding down. And here I sit, with my second binder full of Project Life pages. I'm so glad I did this project this year.  I'm going to be putting together a post for early December about my process and how I fit this into my week every week, the supplies I go to time and again … Read More

Ah…just as fall begins to quietly head South, winter in Minnesota is slowly but surely creeping in. Just a wee dusting. So pretty on this fine November day. I do like winter. I have no problems with being cold. That is what down comforters and bourbon are for. (I’m joking! I don’t have a down comforter!) It makes me want … Read More

I am a Silhouette newb. I debated getting one for a long time. I thought, “What would I do with one of those things? I am clean and simple. I am linear and graphic. I’m not the frou frou crafty type!” It would be just one more scrapbooking tool that would gather dust in some remote corner of my already … Read More

After posting last week's weight-related whine fest (which generated a great commiseration of misery and support in the comments, in addition to making me me feel so much better in my quest for better health and lesser girth) I set out last week to make some tweaks. Many of you suggested shaking some things up, and last week, it was … Read More

Tales from the Scale: The Loser Edition

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life84 Comments

I've made no secret of it lo these past 11 months: I want to be a loser. December marks the beginning of the 12th month that I've been living in Move More, Eat Less mode. 12 months. Just like that. And this month finds me on a much needed return to following the Weight Watchers plan. If you recall, two … Read More

How I Exercise and What I Eat

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life80 Comments

I've had a lot of questions lately from blog readers about what exactly my exercise routine is, and what exactly am I eating. I am going to tell you what I am doing, and what is working for me, but know this: I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I'm a graphic designer and a scrapbooker. … Read More
