My partner and I each had some "issues" so we're running a little late (and we've been in touch, so we each know what's going on), but I'll be mailing my package on Monday! She knows about the Tall Card deck I designed, but she hasn't SEEN it yet. I took pics, but will let her do the honors. (Plus, there are things she doesn't know about yet.)
I've said this to mikan & to my partner, but I will never, ever, ever plan a swap project around a printer at work! The deck took 20 pages, and I wanted to do the front on the color laser (the back image is B&W laser). Well, just as I was ready to start printing (early January), I was told that I probably shouldn't do much - if any - personal printing because people were watching and if I printed personal stuff it looked like I wasn't working. Not necessarily true, but perception counts for a lot. Then the printer broke, so it didn't matter, then when it came back on, I decided to risk a couple of pages a day. And my file wouldn't print. Whaaat? Turns out it was corrupted, so I recreated it.
Finally, there was some meeting that the "troublemakers" were at, leaving our area kind of dead for a morning, and I just seized the opportunity! Of course, my application was mad at me and would only print a couple of pages at a time, and wouldn't give me the manual feed option, so I was running up and down my aisle for an hour. I'm sure that looked a little strange, but I got it done, so who cares?! I had them laminated at a print shop (which was a little pricier than I'd planned, so I redid the deck for hub & I with fewer pages) and last night I cut them all out (78 cards) and hub & I took turns with the corner rounder (our personal deck will probably NOT have rounded corners).
Whew! I love them and don't want them to leave, but they WILL be on their way to suzie_penguin on Monday.
Hub likes the cards so much he wants to design a zombie deck. He wants me to create the rules, and he'll design the cards. I tried to tell him that I didn't write the rules for the Tall Card deck, that I just put the rule booklet together from rules found elsewhere, but he thinks I can create a game. We'll see.
