The Life of a Wrapette: Volume I

8 Sep

Here at Wrapsody we are like one, big happy family. The girls that make up this family are called Wrapettes. We wanted to give everyone a chance to meet one of our very special Wrapettes, Amanda, and discover a little bit about what makes her such a special part of our family.

Meet Amanda! Amanda is from Foley, Alabama, and is studying poultry science at Auburn University. Her dream job in poultry science is working in a hatchery dealing with the incubation of eggs and the hatching of chicks! A little different from her work at Wrapsody, I’d say.

Everyone at Wrapsody claims Amanda is the queen of rearranging displays, so I was surprised when I asked her the most challenging part of her job…rearranging displays. “It’s a love-hate relationship,” she said. “You can tear down a display and do it over and over again and just hate it…but once you’re done it’s the best feeling.”

Wrapsody is known for carrying original brands and products, so I asked Amanda what I thought would be a tough question. What’s your favorite product at Wrapsody? Without missing a beat, “I love Ronaldo. Each bracelet is not only beautiful, but has a beautiful story to go with it. And they make great gifts!”

After being at Wrapsody for a year, I figured Amanda had a lot of memories here. I was right. When I asked her her favorite memory she had a hard time picking one out. After offering me two different memories, she finally settled on the third. Easter at Wrapsody. “We have chicks in the window…nothing beats kids’ faces lighting up when they see a chick for the first time and get to hold one.”  So fitting for our girl who wants to work in a hatchery!

While following Amanda around while she was sweeping up the store, I asked her what her favorite quote was. Surprisingly enough, it was a quote that is on display in the store. “A wise old owl sat on an oak. The more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?”

Finally, I asked Amanda to describe her dream life to me in one single sentence. “My dream life…I guess just perfectly happy. In my dream life, I would be perfectly happy.”

Hello, September 🏈

29 Aug

As August comes to an end, we welcome September with open arms. September brings all of the joy & changes that come with the end of summer and the beginning of a new fall (the most wonderful time of year!). Bathing suits, oversized floaties, days on the lake and 100 degree weather are traded for booties, tailgate tents, Saturdays in the stadium and 90 degree weather (some things take longer to change…).

A seemingly difficult task because every football season tops the last, but we love the challenge – don’t we? Well, we’ve decided to put together a little something to help with the exciting task of making your tailgate the best tailgate ever.

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:
logo

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
