Hello everyone, and thank you for stopping in! It's the Holiday Season, and things are hopping here in my workshop in rural, wooded East Haddam, CT. 2020 has been a VERY different kind of year. Not only due to the pandemic, but due to many of the positive things that have happened as a result of the complete loss of my Corporate and Wedding industry clients. Private collectors (My favorite customers) of "hand-cut" wooden jigsaw puzzles have literally come out of the woodwork. Did they completely make up the loss of my corporate and wedding business? No. But did they make up for a significant part of the shortfall? YES! Despite the lower income this year, I have enjoyed making the puzzles of 2020, significantly more than in any of the last 15+ years!
I am currently trying to intricately handcraft all of the in-house orders for Christmas, and starting to plan for people to enjoy some AMAZING early 2021 Puzzles while many of us remain secluded at home for the winter ahead.
Also, don't forget... Valentine's Day is coming, so if you do want to surprise your sweetheart with something extra special, why not gift her/him a thoughtful handcrafted wooden puzzle that will be enjoyed, year after year after year! (Unlike a dozen cut roses, or giant box of candies, or dinner at that fancy expensive restaurant which will fade into a distant memory.)
As a final update comment, I have drastically expanded my ETSY puzzle shop in 2020 to now have 100 listings from roughly 30 this time last year, and am focusing on very high quality art for some insanely amazing puzzles if I may say so myself. Stop in and browse the gallery. In 2021, I plan to double my inventory offerings to 200 listings! Let's see if I accomplish this.
I have several Website domain names that ALL point you into my ETSY shop. Here they all are. Simply click on any of them.
Yes, You might say that I like to collect domain names! :-))
I have some HUGE announcements coming in the beginning of 2021, so do check back here to see what they are. (:
