I Do
I bet most weddings take place†in the summer. The weatherís good,†itís easier for the guests who have to†travel, and you can be outside.†Another reason why I make this†assumption is because we cut more†wedding puzzles now than at any†other time of the year.†A puzzle is the†perfect way to†commemorate the†special day.†Whether itís your†day from 20 years†ago or tomorrow,†a son or daughterís wedding, or†your favorite niece, a Stave puzzle†is the perfect gift.

The Missing Piece
When you meet that special†someone, you feel like youíve found†that missing piece, right? They†seem to fill that little spot in your†heart thatís been empty, waiting for†just the right fit. Why not create a†puzzle to remember this incredible†time in life? The moment can be†relived every time the puzzle is†worked. We can fill it with the†silhouettes that represent your†perfect day: the proposal on one†knee, a horse and carriage ride to†the church, a dog standing in as†best man, the honeymoon safari to†Africa. No matter what made your†day unique, we can help you create†a keepsake that will be enjoyed for†years to come.

Picture this . Itís your†anniversary, the music is softly†playing in the background, the†champagne is poured and the†candles are lit on the puzzle table.†Wonít it be nice to have a few hours†of your loveís undivided attention†while you work to put together the†pieces of your lives? We all know†times like this are few and†far†between in our day to day lives.

Love you to pieces, Jennifer

You Did This For Me?

Never underestimate the†power of making someone feel†special. Who†wouldnít be thrilled†to see the special†pieces you chose to†have cut into their†puzzle? A boy with a†soccer ball or a girl†on a pony. A woman with a trowel†or a man with golf clubs. Weíll cut†a bride and groom for the lucky†couple or a person in a cap and†gown for the graduate. No matter†the recipient or occasion, we can†help you create the perfect gift that†will be enjoyed for years to come.

Be Unique

Everybody brings a bottle of†wine to the neighborís house when†invited for dinner. How†many business card holders†does your boss really need?†Do you honestly think the†friends who hosted you at†their lake house really want†another dust collector?! Donít†be like everyone else. Surprise your†friends and boss with their very†own Stave Puzzle. Youíll be the first†in the office to get promoted and†youíll be receiving more invitations†than you can handle. I promise.

Puzzling: It’s Good for Everyone!

Did you know we offer Kid Kut puzzles? If you have†a youngster whoís not quite ready for our regular†piece size of 2 pieces per square inch, weíll cut larger†pieces for them. Give us a call for piece size options†and pricing. Theyíre great for the older generation,†too.

Feel like a trip to the city but donít want to leave the†country? Give Central Park Sunday a try. Youíll enjoy†the hustle and bustle without ever leaving home!

Central Park Sunday

Take Notes!!!

We got quite a laugh the other day when H.S. of Waltham, MA., called with a request. ìCan you tell me†what the names are of the four puzzles I bought last November?î It seems that when he received the†Christmas gifts he tucked them away to put under the tree the following month. And then he promptly†forgot about them! The puzzles were discovered just the other day at the top of a closet, nicely wrapped and†awaiting their debut. Hereís where it gets funny. Mrs. S. wonít let him open the puzzles. She says heís got to†save them for this Christmas! Not being totally sure what he had ordered, he gave us a call so he didnít†accidently order the same things this year. I told Mr. S that I wouldnít want to live at his house. It would†drive me crazy knowing there were gifts tucked away, just waiting to be opened. He said he was going to†start working on that. After all, Fatherís day is coming right up! The moral of the story? Open your puzzles†up as soon as you get them!!!
