We Made it to Chicago.... Finally!

I am amazed that everytime we fly, we have issues. We left Portland ontime, came in late to Las Vegas had 12 minutes to connect to our next flight instead of the 45 we were supposed to have. We took off from Las Vegas but about 2/3 the way through the flight are told we will be landing in Kansas City Missouri for more fuel since Chicago is closed. We sit there for almost 2 hours! No food, can't get off the plane... but finally we take off for Chicago that is now open. We fly watching the lightening storm just a ways off in the distance almost all the way. We were supposed to arrive at 8:30pm and arrived at 2:00am! Had to be at the show at 8am. So very little sleep after we finally were checked in. Flight home will be better I am sure.

OK for the FUN stuff. We didn't need much sleep to set up the booth. It is amazing. We love the new pieces. Thanks Jason for building them. Thanks to the designers for the amazing work that is lining the shelves and walls of the booth. We will put pictures when it is all pretty online tomorrow.
Here are some of set up today.

Kay and Tanya working to unpack everything. So many boxes, pieces, papers to put on the wall. Thanks for working so hard today!

Here is one of the displays in progress, still have a couple of things to add in the morning.

This is one of the new displays for our new Clearly Petite Stamp Elements. Isn't it cute. On the other side is the ribbons in metal gutters just like at the store. You can also peak at the walls behind it. We will post pictures of the entire booth tomorrow! So loving it!

Ok we are off to finish our "hotelwork" and get some sleep. Have to be up at 5:30am.
