Show Set Up: Day 1


We made it to Scottsdale, AZ from Medford OR!  Actually, I can't complain too much about the long drive...because I flew while my husband, Matt, drove all by himself!  Yep, he surprised me for Christmas with a plane ticket to AZ!  I was beyond delighted not to have to make the 22 hour trek towing a trailer.  Matt timed it perfectly and actually picked me up at the Phoenix airport on his way to Scottsdale.  

Day 1:  We arrived at the Show at 9 a.m. on Monday.  We have until Friday at 4 pm to have the booth all finished up!  That may seem like a lot of time to some...but trust me, building a booth from the ground up is not an easy task!  All that is here when we arrived were the basic walls--the same walls they have been using for the past 23 years.  Not in great shape.  So first thing we did was patch, sand and paint the walls a nice shade of grey (same shade of grey I have in my studio back home).  Then we laid down the floor.  We've used this flooring for a few years in a row now, and I love it.  It's garage flooring, thus indestructible!  It pieces together quiet easily.  The only really complicated part are the edges.  The wall angles change every year, so we have to cut the floor to fit.
