Harry Potter Book 2
Harry Potter Book 2 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

I had to start out the first day of the year with a completed puzzle! Quick and great fun, and now I’m starting on a 1000 piecer. Happy New Year 🎉🎆🎉


Cupcake Heaven
Cupcake Heaven by Ruth Black – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

Sadly, my first big puzzle of the year had 7 missing pieces. Sigh. Oh well, it was still fun and much more demanding than I bargained for!


vintage baker
Vintage Baker by Aimee Stewart – Holdson – `1000 pieces

I’m sorry to say I was very disappointed in this new brand I’ve tried. The fit was terrible and extremely difficult to work with. It’s too bad, because the image is FANTASTIC. 😦


Songbirds – Lafayette Puzzle Factory – 500 pieces

I’ve almost run out of things to say about these small shaped puzzles, they’re so much fun for me. I love them!


harry potter book 3
Harry Potter Book 3 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

It’s interesting how these puzzles aren’t as easy as they look. Sometimes I stare at the pieces and think “how can this be so difficult?” Doesn’t matter, still fun!


harvest festival
Harvest Festival by Jonathan Green – Tidemark – 1000 pieces

Wow is this a gorgeous puzzle – but the wavy lines of color along the left side are a b*tch! Pretty darn proud of it though. 🙂


Knightingale by Marja-Leena Montonen – Ceaco – 550 pieces

Wonderfully fun image to puzzle, it’s a pity the quality was so poor. But, for 69 cents at the thrift store I absolutely got more than my money’s worth! Quite entertaining to assemble. 🙂


harry potter book 4
Harry Potter Book 4 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

These are harder than they look! The lower third of this one gave me a bit of a challenge. 🙂


off to the market!
Off to the Market by Thomas Wood – Wentworth – 40 pieces

My first completed wooden puzzle of 2019 – and it’s so adorable! Luckily I’ve got quite a few micro puzzles still to do, I love a “One Coffee Puzzle”. 🙂


Spitfires by Derek Roberts – Wentworth – 40 pieces

I wasn’t planning on assembling 2 micro puzzles this day, but somehow I got one piece of this puzzle into the box with “Off to the Market”. I’m not complaining though, this one is so pretty!

as the sun sets
As the Sun Sets by Howard Robinson – Sunsout – 300 pieces

At a family dinner this weekend my posse and I put this puzzle together while waiting to eat. It’s an adorable image, but not as much fun to assemble as we’d hoped.


penannt race
Pennant Race by David Spindel – TDC Puzzles – 1000 pieces

Fun puzzle! This is a series called “The Edge”, where all the pieces have at least one straight edge. It says it’s supposed to be really challenging, but I honestly didn’t think so. I found it unique and really entertaining. 🙂


introducing frenchy!
Introducing Frenchy! by Robin Preiss Glasser – Briarpatch – 100 pieces

I love Fancy Nancy, she’s fully herself no matter what anyone thinks – in short, she’s me! This was a fun glitter puzzle, but not the best of quality. Didn’t matter though, glitter is so cool!


trolls (1)
Trolls (1) – Cardinal – 100 pieces

I had a “completionist” day since I hadn’t finished a puzzle in over a week. So I finished the 1000 piece I was working on and then did a couple of kids puzzles for good measure. 😉 This was really nice quality!


the cake off
The Cake Off by Geoff Tristam – Ravensburger – 1000 pieces

It’s been months and months since I completed a “What If” puzzle by Ravensburger – what on Earth was I waiting for? This puzzle was a hoot! Loved it!


Harry Potter Book 5
Harry Potter Book 5 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

This was the hardest one of the bunch, it was very dark! Still, at only 100 pieces it’s not too difficult to complete – although it may take more than one cup of coffee. ☕


Harry Potter Book 6
Harry Potter Book 6 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

I love the colors in this one, and it seemed much easier than I thought it would be. Lovely image, lovely puzzle!


Harry Potter Book 7
Harry Potter Book 7 by Mary GrandPre – NY Puzzle Co. – 100 pieces

I finished the last 3 in this series all in the same day, for some reason I wanted to finish the series before February. I loved each and every one of them!


Goldfinch Garden
Goldfinch Garden by Cressida Bell – Wentworth – 40 pieces

My last puzzle for the month, and I absolutely love this image! There’s something about Asian artwork that appeals to me, and I think they make for lovely and challenging puzzles. ❤
