Somewhere online, most likely someone's blog, I read about an idea for jigsaw puzzles (and please forgive me, but I DO NOT remember where, so if I got this idea from your blog, leave me a comment and I will certainly link you up.) So this idea was for a jigsaw puzzle made out of a place mat. INGENIOUS! This weekend, while waiting for the pictures to print at the studio from hell, we took a quick run to Joann Fabrics. Where I persuaded Augie Dawgs to spend a ton of money on fabric for a new duvet cover, but sorry, I digress. I spent very little on 4 lovely Christmas place mats, 79 cents each to be exact.
While the sweet boy napped I did this.
Here's a good picture of the individual pieces.
I just drew puzzle shaped pieces on the back of the place mat
and then cut on the line with scissors.
I store all of our puzzles in these awesome lingerie laundry bags that I purchased for 3/$1 at the Dollar Store. This takes up much less room than storing them in the original boxes. Several bags then fit nicely in a Rubbermaid container.
Then go here and vote for tree #2. Vote or else! Thank you to all the wonderful people who already voted, don't forget to go back daily. What? My Uncle Al said, "Vote early and vote often"
And don't forget Angie today for Wordful Wednesday!
