I'm back!!! Whew! CHA was a whirlwind. Here's how it all came down. I usually get all my catalogs on Day One. Then, I stay up until the wee hours of the morning figuring kits.

Then, on Day Two I place my orders.

Doing that usually takes until about 2:00 p.m. and then I have time to play.

This time, my plan was to take my time and then bring the rental car back on the evening of Day Two, stay in a hotel airport that night, and come home in the morning. I didn't want to feel rushed.

So, about a week before I was supposed to leave, I got a call from Frontier saying that my flight had been changed to an hour later. Well, that was no good because I would then miss the SEI preview party! So I had them change it so I got in around 3:00 on Saturday. Originally, I was to land around 5:00. Well, since I was getting my rental car 3 hours earlier than planned, I had to turn it in 3 hours earlier. Which meant, I had to be back at LAX on Day Two of the show by 3:00!!!

So, there I was rushed anyway. Instead of paying for a 3rd day of the rental car, I checked my airline and caught a 7:00 pm flight home! It all went quite smoothly and I am now glad I am done.

Anyway, it was lots of fun and lots of good things are on order for Sussies!

After reading this list of upcoming lines (ALSO LISTED ON THE SUSSIES SNEAK PEEK PAGE), go ahead and grab a subscription spot. There are a handful available and I'm still letting people purchase a past kit to count as their January kit to be in the YEAR OF THE SUSSIE 2010!!!

  1. Lara, you did an awesome job picking lines from CHA, I've been watching the blogs and websites with all the different company's new lines and making a list of what I want, and you have so many of them for upcoming kits (72 & Sunny, Scooters Vacation, All Inclusive just to name a few). Can I please get my kits early, waiting is going to be way too hard :) !!!
