Puzz 3-D Jigsaw Puzzles

weather: rainy
outside: 8°C
mood: happy
I love jigsaw puzzles, especially the Puzz 3-D ones from Wrebbit.

It started out when someone gave us the Victorian Mansion. I finished it and I was hooked. I found Kinkaku-Ji and Mont-Saint-Michel. I gobbled those up.

Neuschwanstein Castle looked like a dream — 836 pieces. My parents love European castles too and, I hadn't realized it at the time, but we actually had framed photo prints of most of the buildings I bought puzzles for. =)

I had barely started on Neuschwanstein when I talked some friends into coming over and helping me on it. They wouldn't leave. Well, I didn't want them to leave either =) We were having way too much fun, racing each other to put together the different side panels, collecting pieces of like colours, hollering "GOT ONE!" every time we found a match, just to gloat, and we said all kinds of things that were really funny taken out of context. We finished it, all yawny and bleary-eyed, at 0600h the next morning.

We did Chenonceau Castle, Camelot and Notre Dame Cathedral approximately one every month or so. We began on a Saturday afternoon and went through 'til the next morning or afternoon if we had to. We had this obsessive-compulsive need to finish it in one sitting. =)

There are tons of puzzles that I still want to do. Ie. maybe some day, when I retire and have some spare money for it.

And there are a whole bunch of small ones that look so adorable:

*gasp* those are amazing. I, of course, would lose a piece the first day I had it or something. Not that it would ever make it together since I have a problem with those pictures made of many little picture ones like this one here - http://www.puzzlesdirect.com/index_disney.htm
Of course my husband - upon seeing these replied "I hate puzzles".
I bet my sister would do them with me though!

We did 3 of those as Puzzle Parties too =) It's just a Photoshop filter, but it's neat just the same. It's better to do those with a bunch of people who also love puzzles.

I got my dad Neuschwanstein for Christmas several years ago. He's never finished it. :)

It's gorgeous when it's done, but it's really hard =)

So you're pretty good at these puzzle things I take it eh?

Have you ever done the 2D puzzles where there is the same image on both sides, except one side is the mirror (symmetric) image of the other? --ray

I've seen them, but I haven't done one myself. That sounds interesting, I should go look for one =)

The ones I have are called Photomosiacs. You can probably google for them and find a link or something. =). Cheers. --Ray

Now THOSE are hard!
I did one of those where the front and the back were identical pictures but one was a 90 degree turn of the other. It was HARD! I did finally finish it, but I seem to remember it took me quite a while.
