Something cheery (albeit a little big goofy)

I had to record a very brief video message a few weeks ago for a very special scrapbooking juggernaut of a gal (Becky Higgins), and I decided to compile a series of outtakes. My contribution to Becky was only 11 seconds long. The outtakes? So much more than that.

A little holiday cheer—and goofiness—for you.

An Outtake for XMAS from Cathy Zielske on Vimeo.




LOL That is all. :)

Cathy! That was hilarious. Your Clarice Starling is dead on, as is your Holly Hunter, although that one made me spit out my spinach salad because I was laughing so hard. Merry Christmas Cathy, hope its a great one for you and your family. Looking forward to more silliness from you in 2013.


You are such a fun nerd ! Love this :). Thanks for the laughs :)
Merry Christmas Cathy!

A digi shop request---I'm been searching for a 4x6 monthly calendar digital element. I'm planning to do Project life again but more loosely, with a month calendar to introduce every other spread rather than a week title card.

Does that make any sense? I've seen some 3x4 calendar cards, and some digital elements to make big calendars and even circle ones, but no 4x6---even though I know a lot of people switching to a more monthy style. I'd LOVE a CZ style card---maybe solid colored with white for the month/dates.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for you to offer something---here's hoping!

I love you Cathy.

Crack up...if that doesn't do it, I don't know what does... :o)

OHHH I'm dying! You are just too awesome. That is all :)

You are the best. Seriously.

i love it. you are so awesome. :)

And Merry Christmas to you!

Oh Cathy you seriously CRACK ME UP!!! Thanks for the laughs on a very, very hot day down under. Merry Christmas to you & your family.

Wishing YOU the most joyous Christmas! I said that with my plain old Colorado accent with a tiny touch of MinneSOOta still coming out on occasion.

So funny. I LOVE out takes.

Oh dear. Cathy, you rock. Love!

Love you Cathy Zielske. You know, if you ever decide to move to Australia - you'll fit right in. Not taking yourself seriously is a must down here, and self deprecating humour reigns supreme.

Loved your impersonations :-) Have a great Christmas season!

You are fabulous. Merry Christmas to you!

Cathy -- seriously. You. are. awesome. Merry Christmas!!


P.S. Seriously didn't know how to handle the capitalization there -- is it caps for every word, or is it still one sentence with gratuitous punctuation and thus requiring no capitalization. Why do I stress over such things.... Keep hearing those j-school instructors and English lit profs in the back of my head, I guess. Anyhow, happiest of holidays to you and yours. ;)

Argh. I forgot to add a question mark after "capitalization"!! Here are some extras to hang on your tree: ?????????

Carmen (who must put a period after her signature in every message board post and blog comment, and refers to herself in the third person).

Love it!


You are too funny!

Oh Cathy, that made our day. My husband and I love your blog but this was your best in show!!!!
HI-LAR-I-OUS!!!! We look forward to more in 2013. Hugs from the Wright family in Georgia and the Merriest and Jolliest of this holiday season.

That was great. Thanks for the laughs!

you are a total nut! hilarious. merry joyfulous holiday season to you and yours!

I think you are one of the funniest people on the planet! Thank you for sharing that! Have the joyest of Holiday Seasons!

This just cements it. I want to be your neighbor. You are a riot!!

LIke a full mini calendar on a 4 x 6, but 6 x 4? I like this idea. I could put that on my list of things to do this week! (well, after Christmas, and maybe to have it done for next weekend.


OK, so now I kinda wish I lived in St. Paul so we could be friends IRL! You always make me chuckle...I love the silliness!

Happy, happy Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

Love it!!!!!!!!!!!! You are fantastic!

I think I love you now!!!!!

Why does 6x4 sound weird? Most photos are horizontal and yet we usually say 4x6, right? I'm all confused, but yes---six in width, four in height to fit the Project Life pages.

I'm excited you might make them! Will keep checking back! I can't wait to set up my PL album to be ready for 2013:)

~total joyous awesomeness!! Have a blessed Christmas girlie!!

"Pardon me Roy, is that the cat that ate your new shoes...."

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I will have the joyestest Christmas ever!

You are awesome!!

I'm laughing, the dogs are barking at me laughing. Your video was just the boost I needed for final Christmas preparations. The best, most happiest, joyfulest to you and yours, Cathy.


That was awesome, thanks for the laugh :) Merry Christmas!

Hope you have THE best Christmas Cathy - from a long standing fan in lil' ol' England :)
See you back here in 2013! x

You *definitely* elongated your lines. Rock on, girl!

OK.. that really did make me laugh out loud! Hysterical! I loved it! And your Holly Hunter - oh yeah - you nailed it!

you're the best LOL! Merry Christmas

A particularly bad British accent, I must say!

Oh my gosh...that was hilarious!!!
Thanks for the laugh:-)

I know. Forgive? ; )

Brilliant! Merry Christmas, Cathy!

cathy you crack me up! thanks for a much needed laugh

HILARIOUS!!! That, my dear Cathy, made me laugh on Christmas morning, before the chaos and fun fun fun starts here when my 3 children, spouses and 2 darling granddaughters arrive.

Have a Very Merry Christmas to you and your family. You keep me laughing all year!

You truly are very charming! Thanks for the holiday laughs. I hope you and your family had a day of love and laughter.

You make me laugh! thanks for sharing :-) hope you and your family had an awesome Christmas!

Seriously, you keep this insanity coming and I may become your official stalker! I've never seen a better Clarice Starling impression! (OK, I've never seen a worse one either - hell-ar-i-ous!) Best wishes for 2013!

Thank you for making me laugh this morning!

Annnddd this is why we take your classes. Not because they teach great things (because they do), not because they are packed with wonderful tips and tricks (because they are), not because you are perfect in every way (because you are), but because you are real. You are fun, witty, definitely charming, and you do not take yourself too seriously. Thank you Cathy Zielske.

you're so fun!

I love you!! you crack me up! thanks for that!!!!

Cathy, you SO made my day!! That was great!!! You are so fun!!! I hope you had a very joyous holiday! All the best in 2013. :)

SNL needs you!

Sigh. Maybe I missed my true calling?

I could serilusly watch this every day. EVERY DAY. SERILUSLY
