Jigsaw Puzzles

Doing jigsaw puzzles is a great and fun way to spend your time. On top of that it sharpens your mind. The more pieces in the puzzle and the smaller they are the more challenging it is to complete.

There are many different jigsaw puzzles out there - regular, 3D, sphere, etc. There are many different pictures or scenes depicted that you put together and take apart - nature, buildings, popular movie or story characters and scenes such as Twilight for example. Whatever you crave for you can probably find it in the form of a jigsaw puzzle.

Jigsaw puzzles can also turn into a collection. If there are many puzzles that feature movie characters or scenes, or those that feature artistic creations by one artist, you can buy them all and you will in turn have a collection...not to mention that you will have more puzzles to put together and more fun to experience.

Thomas Kinkade Jigsaw Puzzles

I love art and I love doing jigsaw puzzles. My favorite ones are those that feature the art of the late great Thomas Kinkade. He is my favorite artist. His paintings are always beautiful and are filled with light, warmth, inspiration, and love. And being able to put these paintings together in a jigsaw puzzle is not only fun but uplifting and inspirational.

On one of my trips to Barnes & Noble I decided to go to their puzzles section. I was very excited when I noticed a jigsaw puzzle that looked like a Thomas Kinkade painting. Upon closer inspection it indeed was a Thomas Kinkade painting. I was very happy and instantly went and bought the jigsaw puzzle. It was made up of 1000 pieces.

This was the first puzzle of his that I ever put together and a first puzzle that was made up of that many pieces. It was a real challenge and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to master it, but I never gave up and in the end it all came together. I was very proud of myself and I couldn't stop staring at the image that I had put together. It was that beautiful. I regret now that it didn't hit me to take a picture of it. But now I have all the more reason to put this puzzle back together again. I will be sure to take a picture of it.

It was this puzzle and my immense love of Thomas Kinkade that started my Thomas Kinkade jigsaw puzzle collection. I have three more of his puzzles and those are the 10-in-1 kind - that is ten different puzzles (100-piece, 300-piece, 500-piece) in one box.

I am almost done with putting together the third box of ten puzzles in one. After I am done with this box, I will move on to the 1000-piece puzzle that started it all for me. And then I will buy more puzzles. This time the 1000-piece ones... Those are the most challenging and I love that. Besides, I've only been able to find three sets of the ten-in-one ones and I've got all three.

Some people have told me that I should glue his puzzles together and hang them up on my wall. But why do that? Jigsaw puzzles are meant to be put back together and taken apart. Besides, all the paintings in the puzzles are also printed on paper so I can look at them whenever I want. And I can hang those up if I wanted to.

      Jigsaw puzzles are so much fun especially when they are Thomas Kinkade paintings... :) Makes me sad knowing that Thomas Kinkade is no longer with us. :(
