Mod Podge Anniversary Party!

As you know I use Mod Podge and Plaid products in pretty much every aspect of my life except food preparation (and I may get there – it’s non-toxic after all).

And today, May 19th, happens to be National Mod Podge Day in honor of its 50th Anniversary!

And I know you’re asking yourself, “David (not sure why you’re calling yourself David but it’s cool) how can I celebrate this milestone in gluing history!?!?”

Well, David, I’m glad you asked and there are lots of ways!

As you can see above, Plaid is running an all day celebration on their Facebook page with tutorials, contests and giveaways.

And the good folks at Plaid have provided me with a plentiful Mod Podge Gift Basket to provide to one lucky winner.

Here is what you get!

-8 OZ. M/P GLOSS
-8 OZ. M/P Matte
-8 Oz. Dishwasher Safe Gloss
-Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium 2 Oz. Carded
-Mod Podge Silicone Craft Mat
-Mod Podge 7 Piece Tool Kit
-M/P 4pc Spouncer Set
-M/P 4pc Foam Brush Set

I use and have used all of these products in numerous projects on this blog and I assure you I will use them in numerous projects to come.  Just think how ahead-of-the-curve you’ll be!

To participate in the giveaway just:

Leave a comment telling me how you first heard about Cheltenham Road.

And visit the Rafflecopter site by clicking here and enter your email address (just so I can tell whoever wins that they won – you’re not going to end up on mailing list or anything).

The raffle runs through Monday, the winner will be chosen at random and announced here on the blog.

So Happy Anniversary Mod Podge – in all honesty I’d be pretty lost without you!

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.

  2. Hi David, I discovered you and your blog (which I love!) through Mod Podge Rocks. I discovered Mod Podge Rocks after checking Amy’s book out of my local library, seduced by the photo of mod-Podged boots….. would you ever consider – no, never mind.

  4. I’m not really sure how I heard of Cheltenham Road. All I know is that I like it and look forward to reading it and imitating David’s projects. He’s from Ohio, speaks well and often of his family, has a bit of the whimsy and turns out projects that are quick, well tutorialized and end up very professional looking. I would love to win the Mod Podge prize.

    Coincidentally, I am on my 50th high school reunion committee and we are working on projects that will go into a swag bag for all our classmates this fall. This prize will help towards their completion. They will be name shirt sleeve bags and little scrap wood houses as Christmas tree ornaments. Thanks for the opportunity.

  5. Hmmm, I have been following your creativity for a long time and I don’t remember how I discovered your blog. I think it might have been through Pinterest. I bet I found a pin of your work and went exploring and found your site.You are very generous sharing tips and you explain techniques very well, plus, you’re very funny. I subscribe to many blogs but always read yours when you post. O.K….now, do I win the prize?

  7. Wow, a contest!!

    I came here today to apologizing for not getting back to you about a custom HOME sign order over on etsy because I can’t figure out my login over there, but I digress… Will keep trying!

    So, I arrived here a few years ago when I was trying to find an address for an actual Cheltenham Road (near Philly) but stumbled upon your blog and stayed for the crafty inspiration and your ability to crack up – in a good way!

    Thanks for this great drawing to help celebrate Mod Podge. I have been using it for crafts for over 40 years. It says a lot for a product to last for so long. I have not tried the photo transfer one so that would be fun.
