I have my puzzles! I didn't want to attempt 1,ooo pieces and I liked those puzzles too much. Anyway, I'm so excited b/c my mom gave me some puzzles that she had stored away that she wasn't going to use anymore (she's a teacher). And she also gave my a box of scrapbook paper, it's a paper-a-day calender from 2007. Here's some pics:
This is the scrapbook paper.
This is the before shot of the round 18in. puzzle, with my helper kitty Casper.
The pieces are pretty big and oddly shaped. There are 18 pieces.
The before pic of the normal shaped square puzzle.
This one has 9 thick pieces.
