I've been busy

I haven't been making a lot of cards but I'm keeping myself busy with other projects. I finished this puzzle yesterday after working nearly 3 weeks on it. It was not easy to put together but I persisted and got it done!
Here's the puzzle box:

and here's most of the puzzle - i'm too short to get a good photo of it all:

And here is something else I've been working on too. I make bookmarks for a friend whose church has an annual festival in the fall for underprivileged children, so I try to make a variety for the very young to the teens. There are a lot of photos, so thanks for looking...

Here is a photo of them all together, and below I separated them into groups. There are just over 100 of them.

Angels and Autumn Leaves

For the boys - trucks, tractors, and numbers

Bunnies and Gnomes along with a very old SU! sticker


Mickey and Minnie for the little ones

Quilts, Birds, Butterflies

Horses, Cats, and Dogs

Hearts, Music, Assorted

Rainbows, feathers, and boats

Rubons (remember them?) and stickers

Arrows and Stars

Too bad I've already got my entry into the Snippets Playground, because this is definitely an overload of snippets makes! LOL I emptied 2 boxes of die-cut elements along with many bits of cardstock and other items.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully now that the bookmarks are done and this giant puzzle is finished, I can focus on other things for a while. I do believe I may be puzzled out after that one! LOL

Take care and have a great day!

What a great way to use up snippets. You are very kind to make up so many.
My faves are the horse themed ones!
