Beneath each puzzle there is a series of buttons to help you share it with social media. You’ll recognize the Pinterest button as the red and white “P” between the orange “B” and the white envelope.

Transit Maps – New York City (MTA) Subway Map by New York Puzzle Co. 500 pieces.

I fell in love with artist Annie Lee’s work when I did an artist profile on her. Her style is so vibrant and beautiful, and I love how she doesn’t paint faces.

My sister’s got this beautiful puzzle completed and every time I visit her I’m jealous. I got my love of peacocks from her.

Martini Rossi Vermouth Bianco by Eurographics. 1000 pieces.
