3 min read


I lastly completed my 1000 items Intergalactic Flora puzzle by an area illustrator and a web-based good friend, @eurekartstudio

The gold sizzling stamp on the black background, the assorted colors from the superb floral on galaxy illustration, it’s stunning ! I took in all probability round 2 weeks (on and off) to complete up the puzzle. I took my candy candy time. There was a time after I spent 3 hours at evening straight whereas listening to an audio ebook (I bear in mind it was ‘My Darkish Vanessa‘), then I had neck and shoulder ache the following few days later. 

It’s my first 1000 items puzzle and surprisingly I realized so much from this expertise. 

  • The primary few hours had been overwhelming. I felt like it’s inconceivable to complete such an enormous puzzle. 1000 items puzzle is loopy, whose thought was it to start out a puzzle this large ? I did not assume I can do it. I even felt anxious on the primary week. 
  • Then slowly, I took the smallest step : separate the puzzle into completely different colors. Completely different colored flowers, the leaves, the gold stars, the black background. 
  • I selected the smallest flower and tried to do this, slowly. Step-by-step, it began to change into an even bigger piece.
    I felt much less overwhelm and have become excited. The endorphins began kicking in each time a flower is fashioned. 
  • Typically you possibly can simply put a random piece subsequent to a different random piece and it’s one way or the other the correct piece. Typically it’s important to come again to the identical piece again and again as a result of it isn’t the time but. 

It felt like a metaphor to life. 

The 1000 items puzzle is linked however we have to discover a option to join every bit with each other. It feels overwhelming and inconceivable at first, however you’ll want to take the smallest step and carry on shifting ahead. You will really feel such as you will not make it and at occasions, you will even cease and ignore it for awhile. However generally, you possibly can simply sit and take a look at once more, ever so slowly, piece by piece, and it’ll kind an even bigger piece. Then you definately’ll see the puzzle extra clearly and all the things will make sense. It will get simple when you know the way to play the sport. 

I am joyful I attempted my first 1000 items puzzle. I am off to seek out different subsequent problem for me to strive subsequent.
