I love puzzles of all kinds. Mind benders, word games, number crunchers. But my absolute favorite are jigsaw puzzles. I can recall working puzzles with my great grandfather and my dad as far back as I can remember. Puzzles are just one of those ageless forms of entertainment. In different varieties you can find pleasure as a toddler, a teenager, as a young adult and even as a ripely matured adult. It is quite amazing that one form of entertainment can intrigue such a multitude of ages for decades.
Recently I was introduced to the website Crazy4jigsaws . This site is so much fun. Not only can you work all kinds of puzzles, you can design your own puzzles too. By this I mean you can choose how many pieces will be in your puzzle. What shapes your puzzle pieces will be. What picture will your puzzle will be. There are just all kinds of different possibilities to stimulate your mind.
And as a Pink Haired Momma the greatest part for me is NO MESS!! The advanced technology that our lifestyles have become accustomed to, have enabled us to work all levels of these puzzles with just a click of the mouse! Right here on our computer! It is so awesome! You can work your puzzle. Then press save, run to dinner and come back later and keep going. Or you can save your puzzle and run out the door laptop tucked under your arm and then complete it while on your lunch break.

I have spent the last few days playing around on Crazy4jigsaws and I am so addicted. I am just so tickled at this website. It is a lot of fun. It is so fabulously entertaining for me. And Baby Diva was also entertained for a quite long period of time as she watched her crazy Pink Haired Momma obsesses of completing a difficult puzzle. LOL! And I also have been able to get my Great Grandmother involved. We uploaded some of the pictures we have scanned from her collection of memorabilia and showed her the ropes on puzzle play on the computer. She has taken right to it.
