Whew... work day one is behind us and it went relatively smoothly - well other than poor Stuart having to drive a very large U-Haul truck through down town LA traffic... talk about scary! The truck alone is a huge adventure, add a million or 10 million crazy drivers and well - things get dicey to say the least!
But the building of our crates, filling them with all the furniture and delivering them into the convention center - that all went well -
First ... this is sky from the storage unit this morning - glorious huh? Last year we were building furniture and loading the truck in the pouring rain.. this year we were taking off our jackets and working in short sleaves and enjoying the sun!
Here is our first crate being taken out of the truck... It is so hard to believe our entire 10-30 booth fits into two large crates - but it does - (I'll share the photo of the booth as soon as I can - right now as I type... it is still in these crates! LOL)
So tomorrow the fun starts up - getting the booth all built and then we will start the decorating - you know - decorating with all the FABULOUS 59 new images that are being released and decorating with all the beautiful creations from the Stampavie DT members.. yes - I'll snap lots of photos for you too see... cuz I have had some peeks at some of them and WOWSWER!
Well... another long day - I think I am going to go and lay down in that wonderful "Sweet Dreams" bed and crash! See you tomorrow evening to report on the booth and what I see in LA - OH... while driving following the U-HAUL truck today I saw a tiny glimpse of the "Hollywood" sign... maybe I can get a photo of it later in the week... didn't think that was too smart to try and snap a photo with my camera phone while doing 65 in traffic on the freeway - but I did see it!
