Every Piece of You is unique and important! Katie Abey has created this motivational 1000 piece puzzle, reminding us to celebrate the weird and wonderful pieces of ourselves in her usual fun and colourful style. The illustrations in this puzzle represent real people and their stories.
To celebrate Pride Month, we are promoting of Katie Abey's 'Every Piece Of You' puzzle. We interviewed some of the characters who were happy to share their input about their character and relationship with Katie.
Q1. Hi! Congratulations on being part of our jigsaw puzzle, Every Piece Of You! This 1000 piece puzzle is filled with magical and diverse human beings, including you! Can You describe the character that Katie has created for you?She created my essence! Colourful, loud but subtle, juxtaposed
Q2. How do you know Katie, and how did you end up in our jigsaw puzzle?
I have a couple of the Run and Fly dungarees/boilersuits that Katie has designed, and I love whole aura. I follow her on Facebook and she was asking for unique looking people, so I put myself forward as the most common would used to describe me by people who meet me is 'weird' lol.
Q3. Please can you share which 'Sparkly and Weird' parts of yourself you used to hold back?I have never held back any part of myself.
Something my mum taught me, was to love myself and not take on other people's thoughts about me.

My mum installed an inner confidence in myself that I wish I could teach others.

You know who you are. Even if parts of you need work, you need to love you.
You are the star in your life story!
