It's sort of done

The final bits and pieces to Superfoodland!: the scorecards, the napkin, the 2 decks of cards, the fortunes, and the rule book.

I wanted the fortunes to resemble chocolate squares, and I think they look ok, but they're way too light (I made them with archival foamcore). So I'll have to redo those with mat boards when this all comes back from Cedar Crest. I had been saving real chocolate foil wrappers to wrap the fortunes with, but I couldn't clean all the chocolate off them. And guess what?! Special Collections always seem to have that no-food rule, so I had to give up on the chocolate foils and use fresh aluminum foils instead.

There are so many little bits & pieces to this game. I hope I didn't forget anything. I did remember to include the die in the package...

You can see the game board here, the glass & bowls here (although I'm actually using smaller glass bowls that Helen lent me), and the utensils and blueberries here. All of those items shipped out about 10 days ago.

And of course I did forget something—I was supposed to make a CD of about 10 images for the talk that Anne's giving. So it's another trip to Anne's tomorrow before she takes off for PA.

Congrats on getting done. You must have burned the midnight oil to finish but you seem to be a night owl anyway.

Once again, congrats.

Dr. Russ -- thanks. Actually, I didn't stay up too late this time, but it did take me the whole day to get it done.
