Someone Creates A Blank $20 1,000-Piece Puzzle And It’s Almost Too Evil

Being stuck in quarantine really has us scrambling for ways to pass time. And there’s hardly a better way to spend a few hours than by assembling a jigsaw puzzle. However, assembling the same old puzzles you have on your shelf can get boring pretty fast – that’s when you begin to want something more challenging. And if the transparent and the 51,300-piecepuzzles don’t seem challenging enough, we’ve got a new contender for you – a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that’s completely blank.

4-Year-Old Feels Lonely In Quarantine, Sets Up A Fairy Garden, Her Neighbor Notices And Pretends To Be A Fairy Named Sapphire For 9 Months

During these stressful times, we could all use a heartwarming story about a little girl who still believes in fairytales, magic, and fairies. Kelly Victoria—a photographer based in LA, California—thought the same when she decided to share how she and her 4-year-old neighbor created a beautiful bond. It all started at the beginning of the pandemic when Kelly stumbled upon a fairy garden set up by a tree one night, and decided to brighten up a young girl’s day. The gorgeous fairy garden had a little note attached about a girl who felt lonely in quarantine and “wanted to spread some cheer.” Not only did she spread cheer to her neighbors on her street, but to more than 390k people on Twitter, as well.

Photographer Uses A Pressure Washer To Create A Beautiful Mural On His Driveway

During the quarantine, many of us were forced to come up with new ways to entertain ourselves. Some people watched all the seasons of every TV show ever made, some started learning a new language, some learned to play the trombone, and some, apparently, “drew” a gorgeous piece of art on their driveway using a pressure washer. Well, at least one person did and his name is Ron Burkett.

Ron Burkett is a photographer and a YouTuber from Trussville, Alabama. A few months ago, the artist uploaded a video in which he showed the whole process of him “sculpting” an impressive wildlife-themed masterpiece on his driveway using a pressure washer. Let’s take a look!

The mural features giant trees, majestic wolves, rolling hills, and elk

“During the ‘stay at home’ order of the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, I decided to catch up on some projects around the house, including pressure washing the driveway,” reads the description of the video.

The mural features giant trees, majestic wolves, rolling hills, and elk. After Ron finishes the artwork, he captures it from a bird’s-eye view using his trusty drone.

Ron also took some creative pictures with the artwork using a drone

And it absolutely isn’t the only incredibly creative project Ron has realized. There are quite a lot of them. To see more of his creations, you can visit his Instagram profile.

Since Ron is a photographer, most of his creative projects are photography-related. “My passion for photography goes back to my high school years (let’s just say late ’70s) and is something I continue to enjoy in my semi-retirement years. I do mostly commercial, news, and sports photography now as a job, but love travel and nature photography when I can choose my own subjects,” the artist writes on his website.

It seems like Ron truly enjoys taking photos using his trusty drone

“Nature and sports photography are challenging and great fun, but the opportunity to work with people to create images that will grow more precious with time is a special thing,” the artist writes on his website.

Sometimes, he even uses his drone to draw these gorgeous aerial light paintings

“Flew to the moon tonight”

Here’s what people on Instagram think about this impressive pressure washer art

This 12-Year-Old Girl Redecorated Her Family Home In A Week For Just $125

Being stuck in quarantine has prompted many of us to take up new hobbies and develop new talents. Just take Bea Levache, a 12-year-old girl from Kent, United Kingdom, for example. During the lockdown, she was constantly complaining about being bored so her mother, Susie, decided to ‘teach her a lesson’ by asking her to measure a wall that she was planning to panel. Then the mother showed Bea how to use the workbench and handsaw, and the girl managed to complete the paneling by herself. Turns out that Bea actually loved the job, and to her mother’s surprise, ended up redecorating the whole home!

It all started when her mother, Susie, asked her to help with some measuring

Soon enough the girl was taking up more difficult projects and even pitching some ideas of her own

Susie says that as the stores were closed, they had to work with what they had. It was Bea’s idea to go with the mismatched cupboard color

In an interview with Bored Panda, Susie said she let Bea try out what she liked as she had plenty of time to repair her mistakes if any happened. “She now uses the handsaw, spirit level, electric drill, sander, and tile cutter confidently,” said the mother. “She even had a go at stenciling and her next project is to renovate her brother’s room using some carpentry skills.”

The finished result ended up looking absolutely amazing

Bea was a little worried at first but quickly got the hang of it

Susie says that she loves to reuse and repurpose old things, and has quite the collection of old handles, frames, and furniture in her shed. “In terms of our budget, it was actually very little because we already had timber, glue, paints and old handles, etc., so in real terms, we spent about $100-$150 on extra items,” explained the mother. “But everything else, we either raided the attic or painted stuff from other rooms to give it a new lease of life. We had a really productive week and did countless rooms in about 10 days and we are still going.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

These Adorable Teacup Gardens Could Be Your Next Quarantine Project (23 Pics)

For those of us living in apartments, having a garden sounds like some sort of a dream. But what if I told you that you don’t need a home with a backyard to have a nice garden? Apparently, sometimes all you need is a teacup and a little creativity.

People are sharing photos of their miniature gardens that fit inside teacups and they’re absolutely adorable. Creating these tiny gardens could be a great way to pass time while you’re stuck in quarantine – especially if you don’t have the patience to grow a bonsai. So grab an old teacup, pick up some moss and a handful of dirt the next time you’re walking the dog and check out some inspiration in the gallery below!

14-Year-Old Spends The Quarantine Creating Chalk Drawings Each Day To Entertain Her Little Brother With ‘Travels’ From Their Driveway

No school, no sports or band practice, no sleepovers or camps mean children and teens are hugely on their own when it comes to keeping busy and entertained during the quarantine. But that doesn’t mean they’re doomed to boredom.

Take 14-year-old Macaire Everett and her 9-year-old little brother, Camden, for example. The siblings have found a unique way to brighten up not only their own lives, but their entire community’s as well. Since the beginning of the lockdown, Macaire has been drawing creative ‘scenes’ with chalk on their sidewalk and Camden has been ‘traveling’ through them all around the world (and time!) and posing for amusing photos. Their neighborhood in Libertyville, Illinois, has already witnessed over 100 artworks, but the sister and brother duo don’t plan to stop just yet; they say there are more adventures to go on!

“I came up with the idea since my brother and I needed something to do during quarantine,” Macaire told Bored Panda. “After I did one chalk drawing of balloons, I asked him to be in the picture and he had fun, so I did it again. After chalking for about 15 days in a row, I decided to set a goal of chalking 100 days in a row.”

But even now, as Macaire and Camden have surpassed their milestone, their project hasn’t become a task to them. They still continue to do it. “It was fun to pretend that he could travel and go on fun adventures,” Macaire explained. “I met the goal of chalking 100 days in a row on July 4, and I keep chalking (about every other day) to help spread joy to others since people tell me this makes them happy.”#2

You could say the whole series is a perfect representation of the bond these two share. “We have always been close and this has brought us even closer since we come up with ideas together and talk like he’s really going on all these adventures.”

The 14-year-old has to go back to school in the middle of August so for now, she’s planning to continue the series at least until then. “We are having fun doing this and are so happy other people enjoy it,” she added.#3

34 Funny Comics By Thais Vanderheyden Illustrating What It’s Like To Be Stuck In Quarantine With Her 4 Toddlers

As if taking care of kids wasn’t a tough job already, the quarantine is really pushing the boundaries of every parent’s patience. Having to constantly keep an eye on your child while dealing with phone calls and zoom meetings can really drain you – and now imagine being stuck in quarantine with four, like Belgian illustrator Thais Vanderheyden is.

Ever since the beginning of the quarantine, the mother of four has kept a daily diary of drawings illustrating all of her struggle. “I guess many will recognize scenes from their own life with toddlers and kids…” says the artist.

More info: thaisvanderheyden.com | Instagram

#1 Personal Development

#2 Facetime

“It started all in March when our country went to lockdown. I totally freaked out by the thought that schools would be closed for a long time,” says Thais. “For 8 weeks, I have 4 toddlers (Bob, Morris, and twins Pepa and Colette) with a full agenda of deadlines as a writer and illustrator of children’s books. But I’m still alive, my hair looks wild, I took some pounds and must admit I had more then a few goods laughs with my bunch.”

#3 Clean House

#4 Look Look Look Look Look, Mommy

Thais says that she has been drawing at the breakfast table every day since day one of the quarantine. She says that many of the stories actually happened, like the FaceTime incident, while others were just thoughts that crossed her mind. “I posted them on my Instagram and got like tons of messages of working moms and dads who recognized themselves in the drawings,” said Thais. “So I kept going. I hope you enjoy it too!”

Our 10 Imaginative Photos Explore What It Would Be Like To Travel Inside Our Home

We are Alexandra and Serge Siro, photographers, and travelers. Everything started with the quarantine, when we realized, that we would not travel anywhere the next several months or maybe half a year. But we stayed optimistic and entered our imagination: what if we could become tiny for this period of time, then our own apartment would turn into a huge unknown world.

Thus, we started to create our miniature series about home adventures. The process itself is quite long and requires a lot of attention and patience. Going from an idea to its outcome, we realized, how many tricks and details are actually hidden in this way. But it gives us so much fun and inspiration, so we continue creating more and more new series.
