But in that video, I only got as far as separating all the pieces with the border pieces ready to be put together. I didn’t explain how I work each puzzle section. And I promised to show the finished puzzle.
Well, I finished the puzzle today. But instead of just showing a photo of the completed puzzle, I decided to continue the video to show the various stages of my puzzle progress. From completing the border to putting in the last piece.
While I have been documenting my puzzles through photos on Instagram, I had not kept any kind of master list. Since my puzzle collection has expanded a bit a lot, I finally decided to catalog my puzzles, past and present. So over my winter break, I made a master database of all my puzzles going back to 2016.
Yes, that’s right. I dug through my photos both and through my Puzzle Warehouse account. Of course, I have a few puzzles that I cannot remember which year I completed them in and I’m sure a few are missing from the list, particularly from the earlier years as I didn’t regularly take photos or post my puzzles back in 2016. And any prior to 2016 are lost in the vague recesses of my memory.
Needless to say, I have done a lot of puzzles since 2016.
But let’s talk about the puzzles I completed in 2021!
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.
