    I agree Lainey........no sense in being tormented! Sometimes I do 300 piece ones, just to be sure to have fun! ha ha

    It's funny, one of the first ones I did last year was a christmas gift from my daughter. I think she bought the wrong one......not the one I mentioned. It was the hardest one I've ever done. I think I posted the puzzle pic......it was an owl on a tree in winter......all grays/whites. It drove me crazy. It actually started depressing me......but since it was from my DD, I kept on and finished it. I know this sounds nutty, but I've learned, if I really like the image, I can keep going, even if it's days until I find just a couple pieces. For some reason, that seems to be good for me, rather than quitting. I think my OCD helps me through too. hahaha

    My son is a pescatarian, who sometimes eats red meat, but not often. Anyhow........he loves hotdogs. Go figure! Anyhow, I bought him a puzzle of hotdogs for him to put together, since I thought he'd enjoy that. Well, it drove him crazy and he quit. I told him to send it home and I'd go crazy for him. hahaha It was the worst puzzle to put together. Everything kept coming apart so easily. I ended up putting heavy coasters on different areas to keep it together. I finally finished it, glued it and put it in a frame for him. hahaha I find it really curious that I like doing them so much. Oh well......there are worse addictions!

    deleted. Photobucket wouldn't let me post a pic without paying to do so.

    CathyA, Apparently photobucket won't leave up past things you've posted. I started at the begining of this thread and here was what was in place of the first photo you posted. Was it a photo you took or a stock image on-line? I just use the little photo icon and the basic uploader to add my own pictures now.

    I've been decluttering diligently, and have arrived at the games and puzzles department of my life. I MUST know all pieces are there before I decide whether to keep, toss, or send to resale. This has resulted in me putting together quite a few puzzles. The last one was 500 pieces and a landscape. The colors of the wildflowers in the foreground were so similar, I had a hard time distinguishing...the parts seemed to be primarily like a human with two "outie" bumps for the arms. I tried to piece the outer edge first, and ended up with two that don't hook together in the bottom row... I even counted to ensure I still had 500 pieces. In the end, I gave up. I had two days into it and even dh could see my frustration. It should be fun, right?
