Migula Puzzle by Marleigh Culver
To behold Marleigh Culver’s work is to understand the artist’s deep reverence for nature. We thought this piece was particularly suited to puzzle form, thanks to Culver’s calming marine-inspired color scheme, which makes for a meditative and challenging assembly experience.

“I’m fascinated by nature because it’s impossible to replicate as an artist. The beauty is so stunning, it inspires me to extend those aesthetics into my work. I love clusters of shapes or things that connote fullness, like a forest. My love for marine life has been around since I was small and grew up near the ocean. I used the name of a botanist for this piece; I admire everything to do with that world, from the naming to the recording and illustration. I wanted this piece to be something fun and grounding. Bringing more of the outside inside, I feel, really helps the psyche. I have a bunch of plants and warm tones in my house to help me connect back to nature, so I hope this puzzle helps others be inspired to explore the outside, as well as to create a beautiful home environment inside.” — Marleigh Culver

Ordinary Habit was founded with a simple purpose: to create artful objects, designed to be both fun and functional, that would help people access habitual moments of calm and connectedness. Founders Teresa and Echo Hopkins, a mother-daughter duo, believed in the transformative nature of something perfectly ordinary: daily play. They set out to create a debut product that would be simple to use, beautiful to look at, and easy to transport: a series of limited edition jigsaw puzzles that would function as both reason to gather together with friends and as an escape for individuals in search of quietude.
Ordinary Habit is building a company focused on the belief that cultivating mindfulness is essential to bring about indelible change. In continued support of their mission, they will be donating on a monthly basis to groups that support the emotional and mental wellness of Black and marginalized communities. As a start, Ordinary Habit donates to The Loveland Foundation, which brings opportunity and healing to Black women and girls.
