The Big Book of Mod Podge and a Giveaway!

Publish or perish the saying goes.

I am happy to report I will not be perishing any time soon (at least not metaphorically. Well, not otherwise either I hope. Bottom line: I’m anti-perishing) because I have just been published!

A while back the folks from Plaid Enterprises – the company that makes Mod Podge -asked me if I would contribute to an upcoming project called “The Big Book of Mod Podge.”

I was totally flattered and, since I use Mod Podge for pretty much everything except meal preparation, it was a bit of a no brainer to say “yes!”

They requested two projects:

A photo cube/pen holder (it’s like they know me!)easy DIY photo cube pencil holder

And a quick transformation for a thrift store TV tray.TV Tray Makeover

I shipped the finished project to them along with various parts of it “in progress”Tutorial for photo cube

and Plaid photographed all the steps (this will answer the question burning in your head “Did David get a manicure?” I did not) and staged the final photos.

I’ve been waiting patiently to see the result and the day has arrived!The Big Book of Mod Podge

It is available and it’s just as advertised. BIG!!!! MOD PODGY!!!!!

There are tons of great tutorials, ideas and inspirations.

As part of the launch the publishers are giving away a few copies and they have made one available for Cheltenham Road readers.

The raffle for the giveaway runs from, well,  now until midnight on Monday and is open to folks in the U.S and Canada.

Because the platform that hosts Cheltenham Road doesn’t allow the raffle tool to be installed here I must ask you to go the Rafflecopter site to enter.

Click HERE to enter the raffle.

All you have to do is enter your email address (so I can tell you if you won) and answer the question “How did you hear about Cheltenham Road?” You can be as elaborate or as succinct as you wish.  It’s just that easy!  I will let the winner know next Tuesday.

Can’t wait to get your copy?  The Big Book of Mod Podge is also available for purchase via Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Please do check it out and let me know what you think!

Sincerely,

David

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.

  1. I’m not good at following directions and forgot to put my email on the rafflecopter–it only asked how I found you. I’m obviously good at deflecting blame. The rafflecopter **should** give you access to my FB account name and email, and you could PM me if I win, if not, and if you suspect the winner is me (I mentioned a certain Greek guy we both know), my email is: dholcomb1 (at) aol (dot) com. And, no jokes on having an AOL email.

  4. Hey David,
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    I expected to find you in print with something connected to a Shakespeare sonnet, but maybe that will come at another time now that you’ve gotten your “fingers wet”! Your projects took looks super!
