It’s finally Christmas and we can take a breath, gather with our loved ones, and take time out to appreciate what we have. We want to start this Christmas break by letting you all know how much we appreciate all our wonderful customers, and we thank you for supporting our little business again this year.
A busy year!
We are very fortunate to say that thanks to the ongoing support from our amazing customers, it has been another successful year. We have taken on some fantastic new artists in Armand Foster and Wendy Brown.
We had some new additions to our jigsaw team in the way of a box making machine and a jigsaw puzzle making machine which we have named ‘Big Bertha’. This should allow us to produce even more amazing puzzles.
Another hard year
As happy as we are for such a successful year, we also want to take the time to reflect on the fact that it has been emotionally tough for all of us. The virus has caused devastating losses to so many and the long periods of isolation have been a strain on many people’s mental health. However, we have seen the jigsaw puzzle community come together to help each through these difficult times and it is our absolute honor to be part of an ever-growing family of puzzlers.
Crafts and hobbies such as jigsaw puzzles are a great way to quiet our minds in times of stress. We have discussed this in our previous blog ‘Looking after your mental health in uncertain times’ which has some wonderful suggestions for staying healthy and happy in tough times. If we do have to head back into a lockdown and you’re feeling lonely, we have an ever-growing online community of genuinely amazing human beings who will be there for you. You can join these incredible people through our Facebook and Instagram pages.
We wish each and every one of you a truly stupendous Christmas, may it be filled with love, laughter, food and frolics and may all the pieces of your yuletide puzzle come together.
Merry Christmas from everyone at All Jigsaw Puzzles!
