Puzzles

After a lot of throwing and screaming.. D has finally mastered his first puzzle. It was a tool puzzle gifted to him on his birthday. I have decided to get if another, something new to challenge him. That got me searching for puzzles on Etsy. Below are just a few I found. 










A little note I felt I had to add.. I almost considered not posting this post. When I am reading someones blog I like to see pretty pictures and I would think that you are no different. I try my best to showcase the best. It is something I often struggle with myself, when taking photographs of things I have cooked or DIYed  so I know it's not easy but when searching for puzzle products I was disappointed with some very bad photographs. When you are trying to get someone to buy something without seeing it in person, without being able to touch it the photograph has to be really good.. it has to be as good as touching and seeing up close and personal. The Curious Pug's blog post "5 Reason's I Won't Buy From an Online Shop" just drives home the point I am trying to make.

That was one of the reasons I ended up including puzzle shaped soap in my purely toy puzzle filled post. I actually felt like reaching in and grabbing one.. and while I imagine taking a bite of that soap (which i in no way recommend) it just looks that good.

Before I go I wish all the mothers reading a very Happy Mothers Day in advance.. come back on Monday to read all about the Mother's Day festivities in my house.. (if any.. fingers crossed)

  2. That soap looks like it would taste like Gummy Bears. I think my kids would love to have their mouths washed out with those.

  7. It's so cute when kids finally understand puzzles and then they can't get enough.

    I agree that a good picture can take some of the place of seeing something in person. A better picture doesn't mean better items though - I always love IKEA's catalog pictures but am generally disappointed seeing things in person, so it's good to remember that a good image doesn't always mean good quality it just makes people excited. I guess it should be assumed that a bad photo doesn't mean the product is bad.

    I'm not a great photographer so I'm very thankful for Photoshop. I'd probably be in trouble if I sold things online.
