American Angel by Dona Gelsinger – MasterPieces – 550 pieces

My first puzzle of July! The angel makes me think of Christmas, and the flag is extremely appropriate for the month. It was a bit of a challenge, and unfortunately missing a piece.

I don’t usually do hot air balloon puzzles, but this one was available, with pretty colors and the right piece count for me. It was pretty entertaining and lots of fun.

Islands of Life by APAK – Artifact Puzzles – 165 pieces

I bought this puzzle for my mom for Mother’s Day, and we finally got around to putting it together on the 4th of July. It was so much more challenging than I thought, holy cow! 🐮

The Grail of the Summer Stars by Kinuko Y. Craft – Ceaco – 550 pieces

OMG this puzzle is GORGEOUS! The more I assembled, the more I found. It’s very intricate and detailed and although the quality leaves a little to be desired it’s a beautiful image that was fun to put together.

Maple Sugar Time by Mary Ann Vessey – Milton Bradley – 500 pieces

I chose this puzzle for Christmas in July; as usual it’s not one I would normally choose, and as usual it was more fun than I thought it would be. 🙂

Oceanside Retreat by David M – Milton Bradley – 300 pieces

This is a gorgeous puzzle that was quick and very entertaining. 300 piece puzzles are great for an afternoon of “puzzle meditation”.

Merry Christmas to All! – Hallmark – 550 pieces

This one was really tough, those trees at the bottom were pretty difficult, but luckily I called my puzzle posse and she came over to help out. 😉

Yellow by Guido Cecere – Ceaco – 550 pieces

This looks like it might be really difficult, but it wasn’t – and it was a lot of fun! I have the red one as well, and will probably be putting it together soon.

Lots and Lots of Spots by John Donnell – Springbok – 550 pieces

So cute, but such an awful fit! Way too tight, I was even able to stand the puzzle up on it’s bottom edge. I REALLY do not care for that. 😐

I’m in love with these small shaped puzzles, they’re so much fun to do! I’ve got 7 more of them to do – cupcakes, butterflies, fish, teacups – I see many more of these babies in my future! 😉
