There's More To Jigsaw Puzzles Than Pieces

And I can never have enough time to do jigsaw puzzles. I have about 500 lined up.... waiting, including (at the time of this writing) the Clementoni 13200 jigsaw puzzle pieces Band of Thunder.

Just a brief history about me in Alberta, Canada now after raising 3 children and now 7 grandchildren are added to the family mix.

Being in the financial/managerial workforce during my working years, I am now semi-retired - just waiting for the day when the only thing on my plate is a great big juicy jigsaw puzzle!!!! Ha!

Sometimes I am just silly with compassion for my jigsaw puzzle hobby. I read, write, buy, sell, assemble, create and day-dream about jigsaw puzzles.  I see jigsaw puzzle images everywhere.

A jigsaw puzzle hobbyist must enjoy paying attention to fine details, have an appreciation for the Arts and accept the more-than-often tedious challenges of placing/replacing the jigsaw puzzle pieces because the reward upon assembling that last piece is the BIG RUSH!  It's that ‘sigh’ of stepping back, taking a real good look at the overall image and saying "oh yah, THAT is one smart lookin' jigsaw puzzle" as you beam with achievement!

Now you get it.....I am passionate about my jigsaw puzzle hobby.

Now that you have visited the personal side of me, I'm moving onto more jigsaw puzzle hobby chat.

I don't stop at doing jigsaw puzzles in my hobby. I have extended by hobby into other areas related to jigsaw puzzles.

I have created numerous images for my jigsaw puzzle hobby. I have enough computer experience to use software programs that assist with that process.

One of my most favorite ones that I created was for my Mom who was 81 at the time of this photo. It's shown with her and I holding the Santa image in the above jigsaw puzzle image....very impressive.

I have developed relationships with many other jigsaw puzzles companies. They send me their products for review.

I spend a lot of time online in the jigsaw puzzle social media channels. I've met so many other enthusiasts who have become puzzle-preneurs or have achieved such extreme puzzle images that I gladly share with others.

I have compiled a 'tips and tricks' eBooks and self-published a paperback book on Amazon titled, There's More To Jigsaw Puzzles Than Pieces. And currently, I have gathered a small team (2021-2022) to publish a monthly online magazine titled, Puzzle Hobby Magazine

And lastly, as a result of the above, I have established myself as a prominent jigsaw puzzle marketing influencer and my  website provides passive income which helps pay for the costs of running it.  Many thanks to all those who support women puzzle-preneurs :)
