My sons and I bought this
torture device, er, puzzle for mommy.
I don’t remember if it was a Christmas, birthday or just because present. I just remember seeing the puzzle and convincing the 8 year old that he and mommy would have fun with it.
A word of warning: I am not a puzzle aficionado. I can hardly stand the chunky cardboard puzzles that my children played with when they were toddlers. You know, the puzzles with only eight or nine pieces. So, this one is a Mickey photomosaic puzzle, and I quote from the box: “Thousands of miniature Disney Movie Frames combine to make one awesome portrait!” Well, alright-ey, then! Thousands. Thousands of tiny little pieces. Each with a different scene from a Disney film. I will stick to reading books, thank you very much!
She’s been working on this in her spare time (about once a month–ha!) and we think that she started in February 2007.
This picture is from last night. I would have given up long before I even opened the box! I will keep everyone updated on the progress. I can’t wait to frame it and hang it somewhere in the house. But not in our Mickey Mouse bathroom.
