    I love to do puzzles! I haven't had one out since we moved last year, though. We've been too busy...hmmm maybe it's time to get one out.

    I've just started my addiction! I opened a 1000 piece that I had in my gift pile. I've eyed that box for a year now and decided to gift myself. I'm hooked. I have adult ADHD and this is just so calming for my brain while still keeping my attention for a decent amount of time. Now the trick is going to be my four cats and the kiddos. I thought it was just us who had a hard time leaving games/puzzles out with pets. Sounds like a cat conspiracy. (Because obviously, we should all be spending our free time paying attention to them.)

    I've got ADHD too and so it does take me awhile to do a puzzle [can't sit still that long] but still as you said, it's calming or at least it is till there's that one piece ya can't find. *lol*

    A kitty conspiracy, huh? Too funny! *lol*

    I have ten Thomas Kinkade puzzles in a box I ordered from Lakeside Collection. I love puzzles of snow scenes.
    I also enjoy doing jigsaws online.

    I've only done one Thomas Kinkade one so far but do want to get more.

    Both my sister and my daughter love them so most likely that's what they'll be getting for Christmas.

    Love,

    Jen

    Anyone working on an puzzles at the present time?

    I'm working on a 500 piece winter scene that's really pretty.

    Have had it out for nearly 2 weeks but have only been working on it a short bit at a time and not every day.

    If things would only slow down so I could!

    What are you working on? We've got a 1000 piece puzzle called Chickadee in Holly going. Jigsaw Puzzle 1000p "Chickadee in Holly" on eBay (end time 31-Jan-11 07:09:35 GMT) It's a bit of a challenge.
    I see some of the links I posted a couple years ago aren't good anymore, guess we need to keep this kith hopping to kepp up to date.

    Hey, thanks for reviving this old thread. I work jigsaws in spurts, but maybe this will inspire me to do it more consistently. I have a table now I could leave on out on - if I can find a permanent place for the table, that is!

    I worked two over the holidays:
    A Secret Garden :: 1000 Piece Puzzles :: F.X. Schmid :: Adult Puzzles :: Puzzles :: BestQualityToys.com
    Dinoscape - 1000pc Jigsaw Puzzle by Educa

    Both were 1000 pieces. The dinosaurs were fun. The garden puzzle was a surprise. I thought it looked really easy, and it turned out to be harder than I expected. I'm still not sure why.

    I have a BIG backlog of puzzles I've collected over the last few years. I really should dig in and work them. I love doing them.

    I looked back and saw I posted in Jan 2008 that the next puzzle on my list was the tiger in the lotus pond. That's embarrassing. It's still on my list - LOL. It just look really intimidating and I always bypass it. Someday.

    Talking about puzzles in the other thread made me remember this one and its the perfect place for us to talk about our puzzles.
    The ones you did over Christmas look so nice & lucky you to have a back log. The first one with all the different colored shading looks like it's what probably made it harder than you first thought.
    We work our puzzle on our dining room table which doesn't see much dining. It's an older table that the leaves pull out of to make it bigger. If we want to use it for something else I just put the table pad on top of my puzzle and it stays put together pretty nicely.

    Yeah, a backlog, but it's cost me more than I would probably ever confess on a frugal forum. But I work them over and over, and I don't need to buy any more for a very long time. So I'll think of them as an "investment."

    I bought one in the fall that I want to work, but it's another intimidating one. It's a celestial map, and those are always hard. I had one many years ago that was, no contest, the hardest thing I have ever done. It came with a book of information about the stars, and I had to use it to research the stars to get it done at all. Many were identified by their scientific names (numbers) on the puzzle and with the booklet I could eventually find them at at least figure out approximately where they might go. This one doesn't look nearly as hard as that one though.

    How did I miss this kith? Glad you got it going again Darlene. I had to open up the Clown School puzzles and feel it. If I'm MIA the next few days you'll know why.
