Keystone Puzzles {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Recently I have been rediscovering the simple joy of puzzles!  If you have a toddler in the house, you know how they can be a treasured play toy from a very early age.  “Rocket” was not really a fan for the longest time, and it kind of broke my heart because I wanted him to find the same enjoyment that I found in puzzles as a little girl.  With time, he has come around and we’ve enjoyed pulling out and finishing new puzzles together.  Maybe it had to do with getting the right puzzles–you know, ones with cars and trucks.

Puzzles are practically ageless, aren’t they?  You see them in preschools, you see them in nursing homes.  Heck, my family of all ages will sit around a card table and put together 500-piece puzzles all during Christmas break!  If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind, unique, and personalized puzzle for your family and your home, Keystone Puzzles has some beautiful creations!

Karen, the puzzlecutter from Keystone Puzzles, creates all her puzzles herself from start to finish, from the beautiful hills of Pennsylvania.   What is so unique about Keystone Puzzles is all of the intricate cutting styles.  Here is the standard cut, which is already pretty fantastic.  Can you spot the cute figural piece?

Keystone Puzzles has an impressive number of figurals that can be incorporated into each custom puzzle.  How neat to have these incorporated as puzzle pieces!

Every piece is meticulously cut by hand, one piece at a time, with the tiniest cuts!  Here is the beautiful spiral cut.

These artistic pieces are crazy!!  No two puzzles are ever the same!  Truly unique.

Keystone puzzles can also do continuous, long arm, non-interlocking, butterfly, enhanced spiral, grid, and combination cuts.

They can also incorporate color-line cutting, disguised edge pieces, and trick edge pieces!  They can do dropouts (like the “I Love You” in my mini puzzle below), dropout/figural combinations, and sculpted edges!  Fancy, schmancy!

Karen sent me a mini puzzle so I could see for myself how intricately beautiful these puzzles are.  The first thing I noticed was the high quality wood.  The pieces are made from a 1/4″ 5-ply birch plywood, which is extremely strong, and the combination of maple and birch gives the pieces a lovely contrasted look from the side.

This mini puzzle took me almost over 5 minutes to solve!  I love that!  I can only imagine the thrilling challenge a large puzzle 18 or 19 inches in length would be!  With all the unexpected cuts and designs, what a cozy evening of puzzle-doing you could have!

Everything was sanded smooth and tied so cute in a box.  In fact, included with every puzzle purchase is a storage box to hold and protect your puzzle!  The large puzzles come with a handmade solid wood box with a sliding lid, and stained and finished!  Talk about a heirloom that will last for generations!!

You must go take a look at all the incredible creations in Karen’s shop!  There are some exquisite creations that would be PERFECT for wedding gifts or even family reunions!

Go take a look for yourself at all the beautiful things Karen makes in her Etsy shop!

If you’re really on top of things, you may have your Christmas cards already planned out, but have you thought about how to dress up and personalize the envelope?  Wouldn’t a personalized message or seal on the back of your letter be such a classy addition and bring a smile to whoever opens it?  Have you seen the beautiful creations at Custom Stamp Place?

Look at all these lovely options for the back of your Christmas cards or gifts:

 

And there are so many more great ways to use these stamps than just for Christmas cards!  What about a stamp for your return address?

 

A teacher’s stamp for homework, a job well done, or a note going home…

 

…and wedding invitations!  Its almost proposal season!

And here’s one I love: a stamp for all your books, so they will all return home to you after you’ve loaned them out to friends, since it is just the kind of weather to be indoors cuddling up with books.

Custom Stamp Place also carries stamp pads and re-inkers so you’re all set!  Every stamp has the several different mounting options.  You can choose a rubber stamp/wood mount, a rubber stamp/handle mount, a self-inking mount, a pre-ink mount, or no mount at all.

Custom Stamp Place so generously let me pick out a stamp!  I wanted something that we can use every year on every Christmas card, no matter how big our family gets or where we move to, so I went with something without names or an address, but classy nonetheless.  I love the font and the clean picture it creates.  The ink they sent along with the stamp is top quality, and looks like it will last for several years.

Thank you, Custom Stamp Place, for making adding that special touch to our Christmas cards!  The best part is that I can pull it out and use it year after year!

Well, its your lucky day, Dandy readers!  Here is a 10% off Custom Stamp Styles Coupon Code: “DANDY10”.

Wouldn’t you love a custom stamp of your own?!  Custom Stamp Place is offering one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate to spend at their store!  Stamp away!

I know!  I know!  The weather is just barely starting to change, we’re not even halfway through October, and we have yet to even start thinking about the holidays.  One of my favorite ways to shop for Christmas, though, is by picking up great deals all year long — and Ornaments and More has some amazing deals on high-quality ornaments.

Ornaments and More has an incredible selection of ornaments, and the best part is that the personalization is done by hand and is NOT computer-generated!  The ornaments are shipped quickly and the customer service was top-notch (my package came with a hand-written letter!)

Ornaments and More has an ornament for anyone on your Christmas shopping list.

Your husband, the football fan:

 

Your sister and new brother-in-law (wahoo!):

Your sweet nephew who couldn’t possibly be old enough to ride the big roller coasters at Knott’s Berry Farm, let alone be a high school graduate:

And the one person in your life who can make your hair look perfect:

Ornaments and More sent this adorable ornament to this mom (me!), who completely forgot to buy an ornament for her second son’s first Christmas last year:

I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to find another “baby’s first Christmas” ornament that would have the correct year on it, so you can imagine my excitement to find that the hand-personalization allowed ANY year along with his uncommon name.  🙂

Ornaments and More is hosting a giveaway for Dandy readers — any ornament of your choice!  Be sure to enter below!

Now that we’re getting closer to Christmas, I don’t know about you, but I hear myself saying “Hmmm, maybe we can ask Santa to bring that to us?’  an awful lot these days.  Walking through Target, the grocery store, and even to commercials on TV — “yeah, that walking talking Buzz Lightyear is awesome — we should make sure that we tell Santa about it in our letter.”  Yep — we write a lot of Santa letters at our house.

Like every year before, you can send a letter to Old St. Nick, but now you’ll get one back!  With Magical Santa Letters, parents can customize a perfectly personal letter from Santa.  Simply create your letter, review it and you’re done.  Your letter from Santa will arrive on Santa’s personalized stationary, signed by hand from Santa and and mailed in a shiny red festive envelope!

{note: this is a picture of an optional letter from Rudolph, not the actual Santa letter!}

Magical Santa Letters is so user-friendly for parents — simply create and then review your letter — that’s it!  Your little one {or your teen, or your spouse, whoever could use a little Christmas cheer!} will get a letter from Santa, a snapshot of Santa working away in his shop and in the Spring, you’ll get a follow up post card from Santa, reminding your tiny terror kids that Christmas is coming up again so they better watch out!  

Magical Santa Letters has thought of all the essentials — reindeer food anyone?

Or how about a Good Behavior Recognition Certificate?  That should give you and yours a little extra motivation, huh?

You can get going on your own letter from Santa right now by checking out Magical Santa Letters – Merry Christmas!

I love to change up the decor in my house — especially with the seasons.  I took down all my Halloween spooky stuff and now my mantle and walls are positively naked!  My two year old and I have been enthusiastically discussing our Christmas decorating strategy.  What kind of wreath should we get?  Where should we put our Christmas tree?  And what in the heck should we put on the walls?  Dali Decals can help me out with this one!

{this is probably a safer alternative than a big Christmas tree, which my baby will spend every waking second trying to pull up on — and then pull it over onto himself}

I also love to switch up my kids’ rooms — it’s so fun for them to have new things to look at and I never get bored.  I’m thinking something like….
