Got Paint?

Mason Jars for Paint StorageThis isn’t so much a real blog post as much as it’s a Head’s Up!

As you all know I love paint.  Paint makes me happy.

My friend Valerie knows this.  She also knows a lot about being happy as she, quite literally, wrote the book on it.  Happiness as a Second Language is a terrific read and a great, do-able, down-to-earth approach to finding more happiness in your every day life.  I urge you to check it out (and no, I was not compensated for these statements although I may get a brownie out of it!…..just a suggestion).happiness as a Second Language


But, back to the real reason for this post-ette.

Paint makes me happy and free paint makes me super happy!

Valerie has alerted me that True Value is giving away free quarts of paint on Saturday (the 17th).  You can download the coupon here.  Head over early as it does say supplies are limited (they say they have about 40 quarts per store).

Happy Painting!

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.
