Jiggity Jig

My sister-in-law called me the other day bubbling with excitement about the jigsaw puzzles she found for me.

After I got them in my hot little paws, I’m bubbling with excitement as well.

I am restraining myself from starting them now.  I have to wait until June, my schedule will only allow it.

 If you’re a jigsaw puzzle lover like myself, these are going to make you start foaming at the mouth.  If jigsaw puzzles make your eyes cross and your tongue loll, well then these would probably push you over the edge that you are precariously teetering on.

The first one:

It’s called Impossibles for a reason.

 

I can not wrap my mind around the idea of a borderless puzzle.

Then on opening the box, I discover another bag of puzzle pieces inside.  Only that bag has no box.  I’m not sure what happened to the box, but no box also means no picture.

That won’t be hard at all do you think?  Working a puzzle with no idea of what it is supposed to be.   Easy Peasy, Japanesy.

And then the third and final puzzle:

It nonchalantly claims “Any genius can do it”.  But don’t bother looking at the picture on this one either, because it is assembled incorrectly on purpose.

It also reports “there are millions of combinations but only one correct solution”.

This puzzle contains pieces that are double-sided and talks to you giving you clues to further complete the puzzle.

I wonder who thought to create these.

Some people really do have too much time on their hands.

I can’t wait to become one of them.

Summer’s coming, keep smiling.

  1. Puzzles make me CRAZY!!!! My Granny on the other hand always had one going. She would stay up all night working on them. I would rather have my nose in a book. Enjoy!

  2. Holy Toledo Andy!!! I, too, love puzzles but have never heard or seen any like these! You better send me your address for The Place so I can get my ticket bought to come down to help you with these this summer (and to visit Freedom and Freak …oh yeah and maybe say Hi to that handsome hubby of yours!!) So get the sweet tea goin’ and I’ll be on my way to see ya” (ha,ha) These look like a “ton of fun” but am guessing they are appropriately named!!! Until next time … Donna H.

  3. I meant to write on here the other day when I first saw this post, but, of course, forgot by the time I finished poking around your place. Anyway, please show us the progress on these. There is no way I could do this; it would drive me insane!!!

  4. Well, here it is 9/12/11! I guess I missed this Post……wonder how many other ones I’ve missed? So how did you do on the puzzles? I didn’t hear you talk about them, nor did I see any when I visited. Of course, there was sooooooo much excitement this summer with Baby Wheeler…..coming soon! That, or maybe you just didn’t get around to it? I have a ’round tu it’ that I’ll give you! It really doesn’t work that well, though!
