I have enjoyed puzzling since I was about 3, and for years I put puzzles together and framed them for my family and friends. When I heard about the Ravensburger Keith Haring Retrospect, and that it was the largest puzzle in the world, I really wanted to challenge myself to see if I could complete it all by myself.

I began the 32,000 piece puzzle in August 2012 and finished it in April 2014. I worked on it without any help, on weekends and evenings. My method for completing the puzzle was to do one bag at a time, separate all the colors, begin with the color with the least amount of pieces, then work up to to most amount, and then do the white borders. The white part was the most difficult.

I did find that as time went on, I completed each 4,000 bag faster than the one before it. I put each 4,000 piece bag of pieces together on a large poster board and stacked the boards until all the parts were done. Then I put the entire puzzle together on a large wooden surface, and puzzle glued it. Next I had it mounted it to our wall, and added a track for glass plates to protect it. A frame around the puzzle, and now it hangs in my house like a beautiful piece of art!

I really enjoyed doing the puzzle and I am proud of myself for sticking with it.
