Before the days of iPhones, iPads, Instagram, and all that jazz we don’t really need, kids had to entertain themselves with hands-on products like coloring books and puzzles. One woman can still appreciate the good ol’ puzzle, even though there’s nothing quite as awful as having even a single missing piece. Amanda Worrington spent nearly a year and a half putting together a 24,000 piece puzzle, which she proceeded to glue onto her wall.
“I didn’t really know what to do with it when I first started, but it was so pretty I thought it would look good on my wall,” she said of the overwhelmingly bright montage of animals, bodies of water, hot air balloons, boats, planets, and more.

“I love a challenge. I must have done around 50 puzzles. They do take a while, but when you’re finished, you get such a great sense of satisfaction.”
