To celebrate, we are going to do a giveaway!  Two winners will be picked on August 1st!

What will I be giving away?  Get excited…

I will be mailing the  winners a velvet headband (my personal tichel secret!) as well as a handpicked scarf just for her!  How will this Wrapunzel Wrap Kit be selected?  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling us:

1) What is your favourite colour and why?
2) How would you describe your personal style and how does hair covering fit into this?

That’s it!  One winner will be chosen at random on August 1st, as well as another winner whose entry is a personal favourite, and then I will go on a shopping trip for them and send a velvet headband and handpicked tichel through the mail!

Kol tuv (all the best), looking forward to reading your entries, and may we celebrate many more milestones together!
Love, Andrea

[FYI – please be sure to comment/enter only ONCE.  When you submit your entry, it has to go through me for approval and I am usually not at my computer so it may be a while before your comment appears.]

Grateful :)

There is something important that I would like to say, probably the most important thing I have said on Wrapunzel since creating the site:

“Thank you.”

Yes, you!  Over the last few days, I have received an overwhelming amount of love and response from this community.  It has been much more than usual, and is the reason why I am going through my days with a perma-smile!  These messages, comments, and emails have given me so much strength and encouragement.  It is amazing how much love and blessing I can feel through your words, and I thank you for giving so much of your love to me and the others on here!  It has made me reaffirm how much a site like this is needed in the world, and I am so grateful to have been given the tools to run it.  I am also glad to announce that over the past two days, Wrapunzel has achieved the highest number of daily site visits since its creation… wow!  Thank you so much to those of you who have been sharing the site.  I would have never guessed that hair covering could help build so many bridges and create so much love!

On Saturday night, I has the opportunity to teach a hair wrapping class to the largest group of women that I have taught!  The particular one was for a group of Sephardi women, and it was a wonderful experience.  I made new friends,  learned a lot, and am looking forward to doing many more events like this in the future.  If you have any ideas of places that could use hair wrapping classes, I would appreciate the connection.  I especially want to reach out to health centers in order to offer classes to ladies who are dealing with hair loss… I know that feeling beautiful during rough times can do wonders for self esteem and healing.

Anyway, I digress.  This post is about gratefulness and yesterday I received the most exquisite gift;  Batsheva, our “Lady Wrap Star” from the Golan sent me a package in the mail.  I opened it and after her beautiful note made me tear up, I discovered that it contained beautiful jewellery and hair covering accessories that she had made by hand!  I had no idea that she was such an artist, but now that I look back at her photos, I should have guessed!  She apparently used to sell them but does not do so anymore… but I’m thinking we should encourage her to start up again because these are gorgeous (she did not ask me to make this post, but I got her permission – her creations are just too beautiful not to share)!  I am especially inspired by her “Tichel Tiara” (the one in a spiral – it’s not a necklace), that is adjustable and will not cause pulling like the other headbands I use.  Can’t wait to wear it!  Here is what she sent me:

So, I want to wear them all at once, but since I realistically can only wear one pin with earrings and a necklace, here is today’s wrap!
