The Oh So Non-Glamorous Side of CHA

Feb 5, 2012

I thought I would share with you some of the pho­tos Car­o­line, David and I took while we were all set­ting up the Maya Road booth for CHA‑W. It’s amaz­ing how it takes 2 days to set up and only 5 hours and 20 min­utes to break it all down, re-pack pan­els, shelves, signs and prod­uct as well as repack all the design team projects and get every­thing back in the crates ready to ship back to the ware­house. It’s crazy!!!

 First you start with a few hand­fuls of these and a nice cold Diet Coke

Then we start putting down the floor­ing (Ron­da, Lau­ra & Emi­ly)

 After the floor­ing is down we start build­ing the walls (Ron­da, Lau­ra & David)

 While putting up the walls we dodge fork­lifts and trees (not kid­ding the proof is in the pho­to)

 After the walls are up we start emp­ty­ing the crates.
As you can see the tallest one (Lau­ra) gets to crawl in and hand out box­es.

Once the walls are built, next comes all the awe­some Maya Road prod­ucts… and their are LOTS! Chip­board Albums, Trin­kets, Met­al, Blos­soms, Rib­bons and Trims, Kraft, Mini Chip­board Sets, Chip­board Sets, Chip­board Coast­ers, Clear Stamps, Glit­ter, Maya Mists, Ink Pads, Can­vas, Wood, Trans­paren­cies, Micro­felts, Acrylic Albums, Key­chains, Stands and Sets, Rubons, Sheer Sets and Albums

Still putting up prod­uct

and more prod­uct… Lau­ra is work­ing on the rib­bon wall… one year I was giv­en that task and lets just say… I was nev­er giv­en that task again… oh my good­ness.

And this is what I call “Orga­nized Chaos” Car­olyn with The Crafty Scrap­per came by with Shelly and Gena to check things out and see how every­thing was going.

More “Orga­nized Chaos”

David and Lau­ra mak­ing sure each cat­a­log has an order form

 Cat­a­logs all ready and wait­ing

Then some how it all of a sud­den looks like this… (Car­o­line & Lau­ra)

 And here is every­one who helped get the booth ready for the show

From left to right, Car­olyn, Lau­ra, Ron­da, Katie, Me, Car­o­line, David, Emi­ly and Karen

And then it’s back to this… (David, Car­o­line & Katie)

Now that I’ve re-coop­er­at­ed from the show, it’s time to clean my house and do some laun­dry. Where’s my fairy god­moth­er? I keep wait­ing for her to show up and so far noth­ing!
