Top 13 Puzzles of 2022

Despite moving and living without my puzzles or my puzzle table for over 4 months, I still had a good puzzle year.

I completed 58 puzzles from 21 puzzle companies. My smallest puzzle was 60 pieces, the largest 1500 pieces, and the majority were 1000 pieces. (I don’t currently have a table big enough for anything over 2000 pieces.)

That’s over 48,000 puzzle pieces!

I completed so many awesome puzzles this year, I had a hard time narrowing it down. I had as many as 25 puzzles picked out until I realized that was almost half of my yearly total. But I finally narrowed it down to 13. To see more, check out my Instagram, where I post puzzles, books, adventures, and more.

First Ever MicroPuzzles Subscription Box

This has been the most horrible week. But I don’t want to write about that today. What I do want to talk about is one bright spot in this horrible week. And that was when I opened my mailbox yesterday and found that I had received the inaugural MicroPuzzles Subscription Box!

To celebrate, I made a little box opening video.

At the end of July, I had received an email from MicroPuzzles announcing the launch of their new subscription box.

If you know me at all, then you know how much I love jigsaw puzzles. I have a dedicated puzzle table (soon to be 2 dedicated tables as I just ordered a new, larger table so I can do 2000-3000 pieces puzzles). And I also have a monthly puzzle subscription from Puzzle Warehouse.

I *may* have a slight puzzle addiction. But that’s okay! Because I’m not alone. My instagram feed is filled with fellow puzzle addicts.

So when I got the email from MicroPuzzles, I immediately went to their website. They are offering a 3 month puzzle subscription box. And of course, I subscribed.

The first box launched on August 10. Since I live overseas, it took a wee bit longer to get to me. But huzzah! Yesterday I opened my mailbox to find this little box of happiness!

I love MicroPuzzles. With only 150 pieces, I can put one together in less than an hour. Each puzzle is 4″ x 6″ with pieces about the size of a dime, so they are great to do if you don’t have a lot of space or time. And they come in these cute little tubes, which make for easy storage.

Micropuzzles also offer custom puzzles, where you upload your own photo. This is a great way to make personalized gifts for a party or celebration. are Created in the USA, they also give portion of each online sale to charity, which changes each month.

I give two enthusiastic thumbs up to MicroPuzzles and their new puzzle subscription box.

I received no payment or other compensation for this review.
