CHA Recap

Good morning!

This weekend we had a whirlwind of a weekend at the CHA SuperShow. For those who couldn't attend, we are bringing you some pictures and also some behind the scenes details as to what happened.

We sent a large shipment of products to restock our booth with the week before the show. It was originally scheduled for delivery the Tuesday before the show. Would you believe it arrived two days late? We had the hardest time tracking down where the boxes were, and the carrier couldn't guarantee that we would receive it in time for the show. (Flooding in IL caused the delays.) Lots of prayers were prayed the few days before the show! Thankfully, we received our boxes intact, and we were able to restock our merchandise.



This is just a small glimpse of the line to get in on Friday. The line was crazy long- so many excited ladies ready to look around and shop! Our booth was the very first one you saw; we were able to see the stampede up close and personal. :)


Here is Nami doing some final touches to our booth.. Did you notice the large chickie? That's the official DeNami Design mascot! You'll see that he is nicely propped next to a few pretty button trees.


We recently redesigned the layout of our booth. We have LOTS more card ideas up! Also, we added more shelving so our accessories are more organized. Yay for organization!


This picture showcases all of the brand new display boards. Yes, that's right, we have 10 boards that have new card ideas! We did our very best to incorporate lots of new and old images, along with many different techniques.


After years of practice (and error), we are pros at tearing down our booth. Can you believe our 40' booth was torn down and put away in an hour? I'm so thankful that Nami & Gary have the system down so efficiently! After being on our feet for 9+ hours, it was nice to sit down for a long period of time. :)



After everything was put away, we got one last picture of all us girls working the booth. All of our helpers were amazing! We couldn't have done this show without them!

I hope you enjoyed a peek at what went behind the scenes along with the pictures. It was such a joy to meet new customers and also see familiar faces. We gave details of our challenges to lots of people- we are looking forward to seeing who plays along with us! We want to give a big thank you to our wonderful helpers, Laurie, Beth and Jen for helping us this past weekend. You all were amazing! Thank you also to those who visited our booth! We hope to see you again soon!

Paulina, your display boards are gorgeous! Looking forward to the next challenge, especially now that I have more stamps to use.

Oh wow - I just wish I live in USA so I could attend your shows and get my hands on more of your great stamps. Living in the UK i can get some and I have ordered directly from you as I can't find all the ones I want over here. I would be in my element having so many of your stamps to hunt through . ummm

I so wanted to go to CHA, but that weekend was already taken! The pictures are amazing and I can't believe you could pack all that up in an hour! Maybe I will be able to go next year. But I will definitely see you if you come to Collinsville again next year.

I was lucky enough to attend this show and spent quite a bit of time at your section. The cards displayed were just amazing! I'm pretty sure that most of my purchases were made here! The boys were so very helpful and polite! I hope the CHA is held in Chicago again!
