Etsy shop of the week

This adorable Etsy shop, called PuzzledOne makes handcrafted wood puzzles and games.

We love that this store uses eco-friendly materials like wood, as well as other recycled materials.  It's also amazing that the shop's founder is self-taught, considering the skills needed to use powertools with such intricate details.

The shop's founder, Jeanette, began her business with the help of great discovery: "One day I was at harbor freight and I bought a scroll saw. ... I found I could make just about anything with it. So I made a few unfinished dinosaurs for my nieces and nephew so that they could paint them. They had so much fun painting them that I thought 'Hey, I could sell these.'"

We love that the puzzles and toys can be personalized, and would make great gifts for parents, teachers, and kids!
