           Jigsaw Puzzles and a Camera


About a month ago there was a power outage in Baltimore...Being Prepared in Baltimore Means Having a Generator!

That's when my daughter and I started doing jigsaw puzzles. Having a camera means not having to save the puzzles...just put them back in the box.

Great idea. I hate taking puzzles apart after all that work, but you can't save them all. I'm soooo going to do this. Thanks for the tip.

Ni Margaret, That's impressive, niot one or two but a number of completed puzzels. And the best part is thatt you did them together. You are a Mom that needs to be cloned! As I said that, this thought came into my mind, " What a Wonderful World" that would be.

Margaret, there is nothing like a jigsaw puzzle when you're stuck inside in a storm.

Today, we have a camera ready for anything. Before the camera phone came along, that may not have been the case.

A wonder thing to be doing with your daughter, those moments are priceless.

You're much more patient than me Margaret, but what a fun hobby and great way to pass the time.

Reminds me of my dining room table years ago during the winter.  Anyone in the family could work on it when they had some time.  It was a lot of fun and rewarding too.  What a great idea you had.  Beautiful puzzles

Joan,  You have a thoughtful grandmother. I think we will always keep a puzzle going.

Carolyn, I agree with what "they" say.

Gretchen, Being able to save the photo makes it easy to let go.

William, I just supplied the space which is close to my office...one room away. Erica makes me take much needed breaks.

Pat, It has turned into a fun hobby.

Joe, The camera makes it much easier to put the puzzle back in the box.

Roger, Who said I was patient. Erica does 95% of the puzzle.

Sally, My daughter was without power...Mama had a generator.

Jeanne, We decided on a card table rather than the dining room.

Margaret, she looks just like you! That apple didn't fall far from the tree. I love to do puzzles, haven't done one in years. And yes, all the proof you need is in the photo, LOL.

Margaret- I love jigsaw puzzles.  Several years ago I downloaded Brainsbreaker ($20) which is a jigsaw puzzle I work on my computer.  You can make a puzzle out of any picture and you don't have to be on the internet.  The down side, of course, is that it really is easier to work these on your own.  I love it and it's helped my eye-hand skills.  We used to play with my neighbor down the street and once I couldn't resist the temptation and hid one piece from her.  We were almost finished but for that one piece. We had a good laugh.

Andrea, Erica is a very special daughter and we do look alike.

Kathy, Doing a jigsaw on the computer defeats the purpose of getting away for a couple of minutes.  That is funny hiding one piece from your neighbor.

I have clients that do jigsaw puzzles, glue and then hang them up as artwork.  They tend to do Florida type scenes of palms and things so it goes with the decor in their condo.  It seems a lot of work to do the puzzle only to take a photo and toss it back in the box!

I get stressed just thinking of putting one of them together. No way could I put it back away.

Cheryl, You crack me up. Puzzles are supposed to relax you. For me it is when I walk away from it. Thank goodness for Erica's patience.
