I've run off with the Circus!

These last few weeks before the holiday have been super busy with jobs from My Other Career.  "I can't come to the blog right now because I've joined the circus" -- I bet that is one you don't hear everyday!  In my case, I didn't really join the circus, but for the last two weeks I have been building them.  Last week we built a big carnival set.  And then that was such a success that this week we were called in to change it up and build a circus set.  A lot of fun, but a lot of work.  Since I've been so busy with My Other Career, I have no new designs or Skårt stories to share.  Instead, here are some pictures from behind the scenes of the shoot:
We brought in a Ferris Wheel for the backdrop

Built our own food booths

Made giant, prize winning fruit! 

And even brought in a few animals (the elephant is fake, but the monkey was Real!)

The Shipping Manager

I'm ready for the holiday rush! I ordered a few boxes that match the sizes of my artwork, so I don't have to go scrounging for ones that fit anymore.  But that means organizing and finding a place for everything.  Meet my new shipping manager....
Aside from his inclination to eat packing tape, he's a great assistant!
