It's A Puzzle To Me

These are not very good pictures--the lighting was all wrong--BUT we loved the effect that the puzzle boxes made when placed together in a collage.

 I used 3M Command velcro stickers and several old boxes of Christmas puzzles we had worked through the years and stuck them to the wall.

 I had a picture there that was not wintery or Christmasy at all--so this served the purpose to fill up a great big hole on the wall and also to bring back many fun memories--

Someone always hides the very last piece and drags it out so they can get to place "the last piece of the puzzle."

It came down easily after Christmas with no damage whatsoever to the walls--I absolutely love the 3M Command stickers.  They cost a few dollars but that was the extent of the money I spent for a big decoration.

Hope this gets your mind going to give you ideas for inexpensive decorations.

Aren't you glad that nothing puzzles our Father--He knows all, has all the answers and is always working to bring them to pass in our lives.
Isaiah 55:8-11
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.  NIV (bolding mine)

Inspired!! I love this. And of course... I purged old puzzles, including Christmas ones, in my great purge of 2012. At least I can hope that somewhere, someone is enjoying the last piece of them.

Dianne--this looks like a fun, colorful display! Now you have me thinking. :) (out of the box---or in the box in this case--so to speak)
