Let them Eat Cake – off a cake stand…..that you made….

Happy third day of the New Year everyone!

Like everyone else I’m totally keen to create a post about my my soon to be frustrating failures resolutions!

But, happily, the awesome Amy at Mod Podge Rocks has, instead, posted my tutorial for making your own, versatile cake stands.

So, if you’d be interested in how to take this random selection of stuff

To create this, less random, colleciton of stuff (balls created separately, probably by someone in China)

Head on over to Mod Podge Rocks for all the details*.

In the meantime I’m going to get to work on my Master Plan for a Better Me and post it first thing tomorrow! …..on Thursday!……soon!

* Confession:  There were actual cupcakes purchased for that final Cake Plate Glamor Shot.  But I ate them.  That unfortunate action led to the somewhat unsatisfactory substitution of  festive, yet non-edible, ornaments at the last minute.  This sad story will, perhaps, give you a hint about what a couple of my New Years Resolutions might entail.

About cheltenhamroad

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.
