National Geographic Magazines – Buffalo – 500 pieces

What a great way to start a new month of puzzling, this was much more fun than I’d expected – don’t you love it when that happens? Excellent quality and the image was fantastic to work with. Definitely recommended!

Love – MicroPuzzles – 150 pieces

I had to hurry up and get this one done for Mother’s Day this year. It wasn’t as easy or as entertaining as I’d hoped, but they can’t all be fantastic – that would be boring! Still, it’s a beautiful image and perfect for honoring all the moms out there. 💗

Art Nouveau Tiles by Barbara Behr – Cobble Hill – 1000 pieces

I absolutely LOVED this one! It wasn’t easy by any means; but the challenge was just right, the image is gorgeous, and the quality was stellar. Definitely recommended. 👍

The Baker (GiGi the Cat) by Christiana – Ceaco – 300 pieces

Cute, busy, fun to assemble puzzle that was perfect for having something to do while waiting for my new puzzles to arrive. I knew it wouldn’t take long but would be an entertaining sit-down – and it was. Love the adorable image.

Animal Designs by Awa Tsireh – Artifact Puzzles (Ecru) – 105 pieces

Oh man did I love this puzzle! An excellent quality puzzle with the mini-hex pieces, and even though the image isn’t my normal thing it was great fun to work. I’m so pleased that I treated myself to some fun, smaller wooden puzzles. It was amazing! 🖤🧡💛

The Artist’s Desk – Ravensburger – 1000 pieces

I knew this one would be challenging going into it, but what I didn’t expect was how much I would enjoy that challenge. This was a very entertaining image to assemble, and I highly recommend it. But be warned, it isn’t easy.

Monkey Around – Rose Art – 100 pieces

This was a nice little palate cleanser after The Artist’s Desk, it was also a bit of a challenge – but very enjoyable. Look at that face! I don’t know that it’s “kissable”, but it sure is cute.

Cat Selfies by Howard Robinson – Cra-Z-Art – 500 pieces

These went together pretty quickly; good quality, cute faces. I think I will probably spend more time crafting their backstories than I did actually assembling them! 😉

Colorful Collage – Colorcraft Puzzles – 1000 pieces

Exactly the right puzzle for me to be working on while dealing with air conditioning issues at the house. Once the AC was fixed I sat down in front of this beauty and went to town! Great fun, beautiful image, can’t ask for much more. ❤

Rare Birds by Allison Strine – Buffalo – 500 pieces

Absolutely beautiful and interesting collage that was completely absorbing – I couldn’t walk away! Excellent quality, fantastic image – it was great fun and went very quickly.

Fairytale Cottage by Valentine Rekunenko – Artifact (Ecru) – 280 pieces

What a beautiful image and such beautiful craftsmanship – this puzzle was a delight to assemble! I enjoyed it so much I’m already wanting to do it again.

Crazy Cuisine Cart* by Iralu – Cardinal – 150 pieces

I know, the title needs work, but it’s all I could come up with at the moment. I was disappointed in the seven missing pieces in addition to the less-than-optimal quality. Oh well, it’s a great image. 😎

Noongar Six Seasons Collage by Kevin Bynder – Mr. Bob Puzzles – 40 pieces

Oh how I wish I had gotten this one in a larger piece count – it’s so gorgeous! Hopefully it’ll still be on the website next time I order more Mr. Bob Puzzles.
