Happy Holidays!


So….it’s been a while.

Sorry for the pause.

I just wanted to pop in (up?) and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

I hope you all have had a wonderful Holiday Season!

I’ll be back with projects (and explanations) in 2018.

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.

    Thank you ,thank you for this inspiring
    posy honoring your father and letting
    know more of his life ….. and you.
    I am helping someone who is 91.
    Caregiving is rewarding but tiring and causes
    one to look ahead on how to deal with
    our aging. What you have shared about
    this wonderful man is something I want
    to print out and read again and again to
    spur myself on and not give up when
    challenges seem too hard.
    His creativity is amazing and it is clear
    that you absorbed some of that as well.
    Thank you for sharing your heart and life
    with us.
