No one knows what hand they are going to be dealt in life, just that we are all on a journey to better ourselves and others. That was the mindset creator Jenna Consiglio had when she started JAECI. She wanted to make a difference and inspire people to believe in their dreams and inner weirdness, which is why she created the graphic jewelry line known as, JAECI.

The Thankful Trend

14 Nov

‘Tis the season to be thankful! 

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” -Melody Beattie

Did you know that gratitude is a learned behavior? This season, we’re helping families express their gratitude & encouraging children to be thankful for all things in life.

So, how are we going to do this? With help from our new favorite product:

Turkey on the Table is a book & activity that allows the whole family to show their thankfulness every day. The goal is to turn thankfulness into a daily routine.

The Turkey on the Table kit includes an adorable knit turkey, customizable feathers with marker, and a heartwarming book. Here’s how it works:

instructions_for_your_turkey_on_the_table_horizontal_hi_res_8ef7166d-6ab2-42e5-aec2-e31973907dd1_1024x1024

Aside from thankfulsmall-feeding-americaness, Turkey on the Table encourages giving back through their partnership with Feeding America.

With each Turkey on the Table sold, 10 meals will be provided to someone in need. To date, over 102,000 meals have been donated.


More Thankful Traditions!

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” -William Arthur Ward

There are so many other ways to express gratitude this year! One of our favorite thankful activities is the Thankful Tree.

thankful_tree-final

Thankful Trees are both a way to express thanks & a fun activity for the whole family! All you need is a few tree branches, construction paper, scissors, glue & markers to write with.

Fashion a tree from the branches. Next, cut the paper into leaves. Have everyone write what they are thankful for on the leaves & hang them on the tree. Display your Thankful Tree so everyone can see! Each time you see it, you will be reminded of the many things there are to be thankful for!


Tablecloth of Thanks

tablecloth_1

Another Thankful activity we love is a Tablecloth of Thanks! Create a new Thanksgiving tradition by having everyone at dinner sign the tablecloth with their name and something they are thankful for. Keep the same table cloth and have family members add something new each year! It’s a great way to remember old memories, start new ones & express gratitude.

Enjoy this holiday season, but never forget the reason we have it!

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Hopeful, Humble & Helpful

Small bracelets making a big difference

Lokai bracelets contain mud from the Dead Sea, reminding you to stay hopeful at your lowest points, and water from Mount Everest, keeping you humble at your highest. But besides maintaining your balance, the company is also helpful, donating 10 percent of net profits from every bracelet purchased to a variety of deserving charities.

With every new charity comes a new bracelet, designed specifically for the cause it is supporting. Some of these in the past have been:

 

Pink Lokai benefitting: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure breast cancer research

Shark Lokai Discovery’s Shark Week benefitting: Oceana

Purple Lokai benefitting: Alzheimer’s Association

Red Lokai benefitting: Save the Children

The newest to this impressive collection is the blue, Water Lokai. For this bracelet, Lokai teamed up with charity: water, a non-profit organization that focusses on bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. While working with charity: water, Lokai discovered that a shocking 663 million people in the world live without clean water. Charity: water has been working since 2006 to change that.

Our owners Sarah and Terry heard the founder of charity: water, Scott Harrison, speak at a MyEmma conference in Nashville. They were touched beyond belief about his true story of changing his life by doing something more important for our world. Passionate about providing water for those that so desperately need it, he found passion for his life.

We are so happy that Lokai has partnered with this amazing organization!

Add to your Lokai collection AND make a difference!
Want to know what you can do to help? The Water Lokai bracelets are now available in both Wrapsody stores! Come see us to get yours and $1 of every bracelet purchased will be given to charity: water to help fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need.

Let’s Be Clear: We LOVE Our Team!

8 Jul

The countdown to football season is on and Wrapsody is ready to show some school spirit!

So while you’re planning your outfits and tailgating menus, be aware that there are some changes coming to a stadium near you…

In the interest of enhanced security and more efficient entry into stadiums, many college football programs are adopting a clear bag policy and/or limiting the size of bags. This policy is used by large event venues and is endorsed by the Department of Homeland Security.

We are thankful that athletic programs are mindful and considerate of fans’ safety and we’re happy to bring you plenty of stylish options in compliance with the policy.

Clearware Stadium Bags

Available in stores and online in 2 sizes with fabric or leather straps.  The leather straps are available in nude, brown or black. The fabric stripes in crimson & white and orange & blue.

The officially licensed logo straps are available in Auburn University and University of Alabama.
Clearware Alabama Logo

Small Clutch Bags or Wristlets

Clutches and wristlets are acceptable as long as they measure no more than 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches. A good rule of thumb for dimensions is approximately the size of your hand.

Here are some of our favorite options from Vera Bradley and Spartina…

VB wristlets for blog

Spartina wallets for blog 2

 

Be sure to stop in and see all of our gameday clothing and accessories- we’ll have everything in store by the first week of August.

Wishing you and your team a winning season!
