Win This (Lovingly Used) 1,000 Piece Puzzle And Then Pass It On
UPDATE: Congratulations to Larisa B. of California for winning! Enjoy the puzzle!
A few months ago, a good friend of mine received a colorful puzzle for her birthday. After completing it, she thought I would enjoy it immensely, and she was correct! I’ve always loved puzzles and have completed several during this year of isolation and lockdown. This particular puzzle was soothing for me to do and it felt nice to switch up my routine: Usually, I assemble puzzles by working on small, independent patches, but this time I pretty much started in the center, worked out for a few circles, then tackled one color to completion, and then worked my way around.
Having completed it, I’d love to continue to “pay it forward” by re-gifting the re-gift! I have a sneaking suspicion a lot of chainmaillers also enjoy puzzles. If that’s you, and think you’d enjoy this, please fill out the form and I’ll randomly select one person to receive this puzzle. One caveat – once you’re done, please pass the puzzle on to someone else, and ask that they too pass it on when they are finished, and so on. Let’s give this thing a long life across many homes!
Note that if you are sensitive to cat hair, you probably don’t want to enter. My friend has cats and one of her cat’s hairs definitely made its way in the box. I’m sure my cat added her own contribution. 😬
I’ll be doing the giveaway to coincide with Three Kings Day, which is basically my Christmas! For those of you not familiar with this holiday, it’s on January 6. As a kid, I put a shoebox filled with straw—or shredded yellow construction paper, because, let’s face it, there’s not much straw in the barrios of Chicago—under my bed. During the night, the Three Wise Men (Kings) stopped by all the homes of the Latinx kids. While their camels munched on the straw, the kings deposited presents for us. It felt magical to receive gifts a couple weeks after most of the kids in my school had already practically forgotten about the holidays.
As an adult, I still celebrate and enjoy Three Kings Day with my mom and sweetie. This season’s celebration will obviously be a bit different, given the pandemic, but I’m still looking forward to it and am happy to be able to share a bit of its magic with the puzzle winner.
