Good morning Lise. I don't even remember the last time I worked on a puzzle. I'm sure I looked at the picture.

My business offers me lots of puzzles, but no pictures available.

I love making jigsaw puzzles, and yes, I look at the picture. Usually I do the 1000 piece ones, although right now I have a 9000 piece puzzle that I can't make because I just don't have the room - it's huge. I think I need a room added to the house for puzzle making. :-)

It takes a certain mindset (kinda like the guys who can solve a rubik's cube in 10 seconds or less) to be able to piece a puzzle together without any sort reference photo. I don't have it. I'm too impatient, I have to have the photo.

A few years ago I got a puzzle with no photo.  Came like that.  It was a photo of a huge bunch of nuts in the shell and it was SO hard.  And there was a different puzzle on the reverse side as well.  

Yes, I like them, and yes I look at the photos when there are photos.
