Me: The Abridged Version for Project Life: Document Life from A to Z in a Pocket Page Format

Taught by Cathy Zielske

4-week guided workshop • Starts October 9, 2014

Tell your life story in beautiful, little snippets that share everything about you from A to Z! With Cathy Zielske as your coach, the process will be simple and the results are guaranteed to be gorgeous.

In her brand-new guided workshop, Me: The Abridged Version, Cathy will help you complete a 28-page album in a Project Life format.

Make your album all about your ordinary, extraordinary life. Make it about someone you love. Or make it about your entire family.

You'll have a plan to follow, a coach to keep you motivated, a complete set of printables you can download for this album (or as many future editions as you want to make)!

A Guided Workshop is an online, interactive eCourse that is taught in real time by one or more expert instructors. Guided Workshops have a specific start and end date, with a limited registration period.

Content is delivered via a combination of video tutorials, written lessons, project examples, downloadable handouts, printables, digital downloads, and more. You are invited to log into the private online classroom as often as you wish during the live class.

Please note: This workshop will be transferring to our new site, so you can continue to access the content online even after the transition. We will send you a unique code for this class once the new platform is live. You will then enter this code into the new site and PRESTO, your class content will be archived there. You are also welcome to download and keep anything you wish. 

During class, you'll enjoy direct access to the instructor both via email and via the classroom message board, as well as a real sense of community and camaraderie with hundreds or thousands of fellow eLearners.

There are opportunities to connect with fellow students via the classroom message board, the private gallery, and scheduled chats (depending on the class).
