Lights, Camera – Puzzle!

Lights, Camera – Puzzle! – MicroPuzzles – 150 pieces

This was the companion image to the 3D puzzle that I posted back in March 2022. It was a difficult image for me, and I found myself constantly checking the online image to see where the tiny things made of two pieces went.

This one was apparently too hard for hubby as well, because after many days of no progress I had to take it out of the bathroom and work on it under better lighting in the puzzle room. Oh well, that’s alright, it got completed, and it must have been somewhat entertaining because I didn’t just give up on it.

All recollections were either typed up when I composed the draft of this post, or found from my blurb on the completed puzzles page of the blog. Thank goodness there’s something around to jog this aged old memory!

Love a double sided image!

Heart Nosed Ned In Progress…

Heart Nosed Ned by Dylan R. – MicroPuzzles – 150 pieces

I haven’t decided which puzzle is going on my board next, so until that happens I figured you’d like to see this sweet puppy puzzle that I’m working on in one of my trays.

It doesn’t look like much, but that border wasn’t the easiest to assemble and a rest was needed after sitting up in bed for that long. It’s progress though, and that’s what matters. 😊

Hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday and that you’re working on something fun at the moment. Care to share? What’s on your puzzle agenda for the day?

My Latest Subscription Box

May subscription box from MicroPuzzles

I was so tickled by this month’s box that I decided to share it with you all. On the same day that my husband took me to a local kitchen supply shop to force me to spend some gift certificates, we received this fun-packed box in the mail. What a coincidence!

So along with my new mixing bowl, fancy knives and beautiful bamboo utensils from the store I also got a couple of very nice looking baking-themed puzzles, some puzzle piece cookie cutters and a refrigerator magnet with a measuring conversion table. It definitely cheered me up some. 😊

Along with some baking facts you can also see the full puzzle images on the right – don’t they look like fun? I wish I had the first one, Bake Someone Happy, in a larger piece count; it’ll be fun in this 150 piece puzzle, but it would also be great at 500 or 1000 pieces too I think.

I’m looking forward to both puzzles very much, and can’t wait to see what next month will have in store. 💙

This adorable puzzle sat in the bathroom for a while, but in the end it was one of those puzzles that had to be brought into the puzzle room so that it could be worked on under good lighting. The darker or more difficult images really need to be assembled with a proper light source, otherwise they become frustrating.

Feeling as though a puzzle is tedious, too difficult, or frustrating is bad for my puzzle mojo – I avoid it if at all possible. All this baby needed was proper lighting and it was finished in no time!

The image online seems so much lighter than the actual puzzle, especially the blue background. The darker blue does make for a better contrast with the picture frames though.

This is two-time MicroPuzzles employee of the month – Brian – he allegedly works in shipping. 😉 He looks like a model employee to me, but I hear that he sometimes gives out discount codes without authorization. My goodness!


Love – MicroPuzzles – 150 pieces

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and dads out there! I knew when I received this in my monthly MicroPuzzles subscription box that it was definitely the best puzzle I had on hand here at the house for Mother’s Day this year; and so I got right down to it in order to be ready for the “holiday”.

I knew the border would have to go last on this one. The letters were not easy, but they were much easier than all the white hearts, dots, and swoops – and definitely easier than that border! Still, it’s a beautiful puzzle, isn’t it?

My only request every Mother’s Day is always that I don’t have to take care of anyone or make any decisions. I don’t need gifts or breakfast in bed, those things just aren’t me.

My kids have all been adults now for well over a decade, and both my injury and my anxiety make it so that having them take me out to a restaurant for a meal isn’t pleasant for me. I’d much prefer to stay home, have my kids tell me they love me, and make sure that I don’t have to cook dinner. (I’m a cheap date!)

I hope your day is wonderful, and that all of my PADS Posse friends out there get to spend today doing something you love, or spending time with those you love. I appreciate all of you that hang out with me here every day – it’s truly a blessing to have so many puzzle pals. ❤

Happy puzzling my friends!
