The Incomplete Neck

I’ve talked about what happens when there are missing puzzle pieces before, but what happens when that piece is part of someone’s neck? This was a reality (ehem, tragedy) I was forced to face recently when I finally got around to completing a puzzle I received from a friend for some Christmas or birthday or … More The Incomplete Neck


Recently I discovered a new kind of puzzle: the glitter puzzle. I’m honestly not sure how I came across them. Maybe I saw one in the “Related Items” on Amazon.
