If you are a regular reader of my blogs, you knew that my family love doing puzzles. Somebody gave four boxes of puzzles to my daughter as a gift, a couple of years ago. Each boxes has 500 pieces in it. We have done the 3 boxes already, framed it, and displayed it at our family room. We decided to complete the last box last year as our Christmas Vacation Project. This one is called Waiting in the Water.
If you would notice, the corner piece down the right is missing. Our four legged member of the family decided to chew it up when i-t fell on the carpet so that was his contribution.
The biggest one by the way was sent to me by a dear friend, I forgot how many pieces it was ( I am guessing that it has 2,000 pieces in it), but it took us a good period of time to finish it. After finishing it, I used a card board box as a frame since it is too big and no frame is available for it in the store.
Big puzzles like this, I love putting them in frames to preserve the effort and fun times that my family had doing it. They are not an ideal piece of display you can hang on the wall but it adds flare to the over all look of a room. I love looking at it when I am working out at our mini gym. Doing puzzles is one activity that really brings us together away from gadgets and stuff. Did you know that doing puzzles helps to avoid getting Alzheimer? I read an article about this and it is very interesting.
