Where to start.....well let's begin with the jigsaw puzzle first and then move on to how my hobby has expanded to the level it is now.
Throughout my life I have always taken pleasure in the achievement of completing a complex puzzle image, usually one that most people (and a good majority of puzzlers) would not ever touch. Some of these were the M.C. Escher's paintings.
Then I started my jigsaw puzzle hobby to include types that held a uniqueness about them. For example the Pintoo Vase Jigsaw Puzzle titled British Flowers is 160-pieces, measuring 9.5 x 4.5 inches. It actually takes on water because it has a container in the inside.
From then on the search for my jigsaw puzzle hobby has expanded to anything and everything. I can be creative and crafty. I have some technical skills and I love to write. I am very organized and can multitask with the best of them.
ALL that has been tied into my puzzle hobby and I have shared my experiences with Social Medias in the form of Blogs, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Groups.
Since my connections with other like minded people I have received gifts from around the world to add to my puzzle hobby. I am always amazed at the kindness and generosity of these people who have allowed me to share their stories and puzzles with others.
This is one of my fondest ( and I will be posting more in the future) simply because it was so personalized. Take a look at this Letter "L" shaped jigsaw puzzle cut specifically for me by Antonia Sobral I have never been more impressed with a jigsaw puzzle than this one.
I also did a mini-email interview with her which you may read and see many photos: CLICK HERE
