CATHY ZIELSKE

"You are alive and you have things to share so why don’t you grow the eff up and get back to doing what you love: writing about your life."

This personal internet space, in some form or another, has been around since December 2009. I, on the other hand, have been observing the world and sharing my findings for far longer than that.

This space is where I write about my life. It is the hub of all the things I have going on.

Most currently: I'm 33 years old, living in my open, airy one-bedroom apartment on Long Island, NY with my boyfriend, John + our two cat-kids.

I left my job with me & my BIG ideas back in June, and spent the few months of this past summer off of social media, working on this space behind the scenes, and trying to come up with a plan for how to combine all my skills in design, teaching, writing, crafting, memory keeping, and marketing to propel myself into the next phase of my career. // Here is where you can follow along on my journey towards this goal + all the adventures in between.








I enjoy working with brands and collaborations with like-minded people! Here are some fun ones I've had the pleasure of participating in:
       
       • Studio Calico's Guest Designer blog feature
       • Kleenex® brand sponsored post
       • me & my BIG ideas blog feature
       • Michaels Craft Store blog feature
       • Clique Kits Designer in the Spotlight blog feature
       • 'Why I Plan' feature on Everything Else...
       • 'Bloggers Plan Too' feature on The Innovative Latina
       • Q & A with Kellie Winnell

If you're interested in collaborating, please fill out my contact form describing the type of partnership you have in mind, and I'll get back to you shortly. 

I believe in regular people like me and you telling our stories our way.

I believe in the habitual, typed-out processing of life events, i.e. "this is what has happened to me and this is how I'm moving through the world with it."

I believe in sharing our brave, weird, niched talents/hobbies/obsessions with the world.

I believe in real talk, flawed images, and that getting things out is better than keeping them in.




I BELIEVE
