If we end up going insane or blind this week...

...it will be because of this puzzle:

When choosing your first major puzzle project, avoid Impressionist paintings. Little beigey-coloured pieces, as far as the eye can see.

(Yes, we've taken to putting together puzzles, and I don't care if that makes us old people. I helped my friend Rebecca with a really fun one last night, and now I'm all puzzle crazy.)

I love puzzles. Sooner or later I am going to get one of those 6000 or 8000 piece puzzles. Right now, the biggest I have done is just a tiny 3300.

Keep it up.

I LOVE puzzles!!! At my apartment, I have one entire shelf in my storage room devoted to Kevin Sullivan related puzzles. I have another shelf for 3D puzzles, and I'm working on one for Christmas puzzles.

A good idea for doing puzzles is to buy one of those cork board things that you put on the wall and pin stuff to...what are those called? Anyway, if you do the puzzle on that, you can move the whole thing, put it under the bed, work on it at a table or on the floor, and because the board has raised edges and the board is made of cork, you won't lose any pieces!!! Thanks Grandma Livingston!

My mom does that too. We actually have several puzzle boards, all for different sized puzzles.
