“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Complete a 1000 piece Puzzle Puzzles. Life is full of all sorts of puzzles and I happen to enjoy them. Sure, some of life’s puzzles can be very stressful during the solving phase, but once all the pieces fit together there is that wonderful sense of accomplishment. Jigsaw puzzles are by far my favorite type of puzzle as they are stress free, unless of course there are missing pieces! I am particularly fond of jigsaw puzzles as it reminds me of when I was a kid, okay most of you will say I still am a kid, so it reminds me of when I was younger. I remember putting together puzzles with my dad. His mom was big into putting puzzles together and it seemed like every time we went to her house she’d have one set up on the basement table that she was working on. I don’t think I fully appreciated the time my dad I and spent working on puzzles together as much as I should have. Now I don’t have anyone to sort the edge pieces for me or do the ‘hard’ sections and still let me take credit for it! Lucky for me the puzzle I chose didn’t really have any hard sections this time, next time I will have to find an edgeless puzzle and I will be set!

I have been looking for a 1000 piece puzzle that I really liked since I made my DayZero Project list. I found this one when I was visiting my sister a few weekends ago. We had the opportunity to go to the Art Institute of Chicago with a group from her school for free. Needless to say since it was free and neither one of us had been before we went! It was a lot of fun and I even found this puzzle there. It is an Andy Warhol puzzle featuring his Flowers. I think it is really pretty and it matches the color scheme of my room. I started working on this puzzle as I was skyping with my mom last Saturday evening. I was feeling guilty that I wasn’t working on anything while skyping as my mom was busy working on things so I decided to start sorting the edges out while I talked to her. Well then I got out a piece of cardboard and started to put the edge pieces together which of course let to me working on some of the inside squares. Next thing you know it is Sunday afternoon and the puzzle is completed! Hadn’t really planned on putting the whole puzzle together in one weekend, let alone in about 24 hours, but what a great way to spend a weekend on duty! I had forgotten how hard is to walk away from a jigsaw puzzle!! Check out the finished puzzle below 🙂
