Behind the scenes at CHA winter 2012

I really am one very lucky and privileged lady.

Els includes me as team member with her business and therefore I am able to enter the exhibit hall before the show starts and stay after it closes.

I so enjoy all the excitement at set-up time. Helping to arrange the displays in Els booth is my favorite part of this process. (of course at the end of the show it all has to come down again)
We had so much fun with Deanna  (our very favorite *Glitter* lady), Haroldine and Bob (the best tape suppliers in Canada), Judi Kaufmann (amazing designer and such a good friend), Els, Joep and Millie

              You can only imagine the interesting input from the *helpers*.  
                       All suggestions had to be cleared with the CEO (Els).
Now imagine all this buzz with more than 450 booths setting up at the same time!! If you could have seen that chaos you would never believe the hall could be so beautiful by 10 am on Sunday
Did you know that just prior to opening the hall a wonderful ceremony including a parade featuring Scottish Bagpipes and CHA executives circles the show floor and heralds in the start of each CHA show?

Such a nice tradition.
Til next time, Carole
