Puzzles by Karen Root Grimm
Thank You

I am officially retired
After 35 years of making puzzles, I'm off to find new adventures


I have a niece, Cherri Thompson, that has followed in my puzzling footsteps. Her puzzles are remarkably like mine. You can contact her at 859-806-1179, email her at or check out her facebook page at Cherri's Puzzles.

I'm no longer selling my puzzles. I apologize if this is inconvenient for you. Although puzzlemaking was a perfect way for me to continue being creative and employed while my children were at home, it doesn't feel appropriate in my grandmothering years. Working alone in my basement doesn't have the allure it had when the house was full of children and noise. I am grateful that it afforded me the opportunity to stay home with my kids while they were young. After 35 years, I found myself making puzzles for the babies of my first customers. It was a delight to get those emails and notes from my early customers saying they wanted puzzles for their own children. Thank you for making me a part of your families!

I appreciate all my wonderful customers over the years. It's been a great career. Surely not one I expected. Who thinks they are going to grow up to be a puzzlemaker? I sure didn't.  Life is often a surprise. Thanks again!
