And now for something completely different…
I haven’t been painting mandalas nor creating them out of pieces of nature lately, because I’ve been completely absorbed in assembling a puzzle of them that my sister gave me for Christmas. And I’m almost finished…
Just have a giant blue mandala in the center left remaining to do. This beautiful (and quite challenging) puzzle was made with the stunning artwork of the mandala queen herself – Elspeth McLean, and has been on my Amazon wishlist ever since it was made available.
The photo above is crude, was snapped in bad lighting, and doesn’t do it justice, but it’s absolutely gorgeous! I plan to glue it and somehow frame it once it’s finished. Which I’m procrastinating finishing because I don’t want it to end.
I’m a huge fan of puzzles, there’s something very therapeutic about fitting the pieces together, like there’s an order to the universe or something – which of course there is haha! I don’t know, maybe it just helps me feel like I have some control over something in my life?
Ah well, let the psychologists of the world figure that out, I just know I enjoy puzzles…
However, I should probably be organizing and putting things in order around the house instead. January is good for that, and it’s likely that’s exactly what I’d be doing if I hadn’t got sucked into assembling this puzzle right after Christmas. Thanks a lot Sis! 😉 That’s what she’s been doing – getting her home organized.
How about you, what have you been up to since the new year began? Hey, did you guys catch the lunar eclipse last night?! The moon likes me… 😍
Happy Monday, hope your week is off to a lovely start!
