A Bit Puzzled

The "dead of winter" has arrived; it is cold, it is snowy, it is time to do great inside projects. Last week I started to make a puzzle. The first one is being completed as a trial. I'm not sure whether I should paint first and cut later, or cut first and paint later. It's quite obvious that I did not use an original drawing and so selling this one is pretty much out of the question, but I do love coloring books when it comes to pictures for children. I don't know that I will ever sell toys anyway so I suppose coloring book pictures are fine to use. (If anyone out there loves to draw and has any kid pictures I can use, send them this way. I have a whole stack of boards to paint.)


  1. ...sigh... the dead of winter.

  2. Cut first, then tape together, then paint. That way the cutting won't ruin the painting.

  3. I love your idea of a puzzle! I'm reading you and Gudl, and Pricilla, and you are all in the Ice Box...... Come and visit me in CA....we can have lunch outside at the patio table....

    Love and Hugs and thanks for your prayers... the study is going well.
