I love Valentine’s Day. Not because I like getting gifts or chocolate or whatever but because I love giving other people little surprises!  This year I’ve decided I’m going to mail my grandchildren and my husband a surprise Valentine in the mail. Maybe they’re not like me, but I know I love to still get letters and cards and surprises in the mail.

A few weeks ago at a p2P Live training event in Ft. Worth we worked on puzzles in Artisan 5 software.  I had such a fun time making one for my husband I decided to make the grandchildren’s right there in front of everyone!  We all enjoyed the project! This past Monday my puzzles arrived!  I was so excited to get them in the mail.  They get delivered already put together.  It allowed me to see the finished project which was very cool!

I however, want my husband and grandkids to have to work a little to see the message so I broke each puzzle apart, put them in individual padded envelopes with a handmade card and will mail them tomorrow!  I wish I could see the grandkids faces when they get their gift in the mail or watch them put it together!

I love this interactive gift.  It’s perfect.  Now what else am I going to make them for?  Graduation?  Congrats on a new baby?  How about take a picture of a new bride and groom and send it after the wedding? Gather pictures from the previous year of your grandchildren and make a puzzle for their birthday or a stocking stuffer for Christmas. I’m going on a trip later this year with friends.  I think I’ll takes some pictures of all of us together and make one for them to remember our fun times! The ideas are endless!

So open Artisan 5 and try a puzzle!  You may just get addicted to puzzle making like me!

    I made one for our Grand kids for Christmas. They really enjoyed putting it together. Then we put it in a frame to hang on the wall. I only wish the pieces were smaller so it would be a greater challenge to put together.
