Did you know you can roll up a puzzle that’s in progress to store it away when you’re done working on it.
I would think finding where even one piece goes would be a cause for celebration. 😉 On Sunday I was thinking, there has to be a better way, there has to be a better way to do a puzzle than hanging over it dying in agony from neck and back pain.
I’d want to throw a party, invite friends over and celebrate with champagne! “Hey, I found where another piece of my 18,000-piece puzzle goes so I’m throwing a party on Saturday! ” 😉 Just for grins I checked to see how much the most expensive 1,000-piece puzzle is on e Bay. I envisioned some kind of tilt board that would let one put a puzzle together without leaning over it.
For just $1,315.86 you can have a one of a kind leaf-shaped puzzle that the ad says you “won’t find in Wal-Mart.” I had no idea puzzles were such big business! I Googled various phrases and was excited to find, there is!
After working on my puzzle for several hours on Saturday while listening to Jane Eyre on Audible, I ended up with the worse neck and back pain, ever! Before I share the one I found and ordered, here are a few I saw that I thought were interesting.
Fireclay can be used as a mortar when it is mixed onsite with sand and cement, 3 part sand, 2 part cement and 1 part fireclay. Why Claypave Claypave pavers are among the world’s best.
We can boast a successful history dating back to the 1800s.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who enjoys puzzles because there are over 42,000, one-thousand-piece puzzles on e Bay alone, and that’s just the 1,000-piece size!
One site I looked at had a puzzle that was 18,000 pieces!
I think I was probably 10 years old, maybe younger.
Recently I shared some of the whimsical artwork of Charles Wysocki, a talented artist I just recently discovered.
I find myself saying, “Just one more piece and then I’ll stop.” Placing each piece and watching this 1,000-piece puzzle come to life is like 1,000 mini-successes, 1,000 little celebrations. Puzzle-doing is probably more of a winter time activity or one to do in the evening while watching TV or listening to a great book on Audible.
