It was a round puzzle that started it all! My grandma kept a very special round puzzle at her house so that we could work on it together when I came to visit. I loved that puzzle because it was round, it had Winnie the Pooh, and it meant that my grandma wanted to spend time with *just me*.

Of course our ability to think of places to GO, DO, and SEE often outpaces our ability to actually go, do, and see them. Fortunately, puzzles can fill in the gap. CONTINUE READING

I have news for you. It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! I know what you’re thinking. You like the way you puzzle. It’s comfortable. It works for you. But what if I told you that trying something different could rock your puzzle world?! Would you try it?! Yeah … I felt a little shy about it too.
