BEHIND THE SCENES OF CHARMED BY WINE – MEET MARY!
Ideally this would be a great place for an inspirational story about how I hated my life, made a change, and grew this great business and brand and that I’ve made enough money to quit everything and lay on a beach in Fiji 4 times a year….but that’s not me. I’m the definition of your average everyday person. Trying to keep track of a 9-5 job, a house, a husband, our health and happiness, our family, our veggie garden, and about 3 dozen other things at any given time of the year. I eat too much chocolate, I forget birthdays, I have grumpy days, I think I look terrible in almost every photo (ok, maybe aside from that stunning piece of photography to the right. I certainly don’t look like that everyday, guys!) and I have days where the only thing keeping me going is the cup of coffee or glass of wine that I’ve bribed myself with. But that’s okay. In fact, it probably sounds a bit familiar, right? Keep reading – it gets better.
WHY WINE CHARMS — AND WHAT IS CHARMED BY WINE, ANYWAY?
At any given holiday or gathering, we usually have about 20 people walking around asking “Is that my glass?” “Where did I put my wine…” “Is that your coffee cup?” (you would think we’d learn to hang on to our drinks, but everyone knows Italians talk with their hands!). We use wine charms at just about every party, and I even made them as favors for my wedding! In a family as busy and loud as ours is, sometimes the smallest detail can make all the difference.
I found Etsy in 2011, and realized that it was the perfect platform for me and my wine charms. I had no idea that my little shop would be the go-to place for custom and personalized items. One of my favorite requests was for a wine charm set with a family’s “logo”, as they all went on a wine tour through Napa Valley as part of their family reunion. How fun is that!? I still get a little thrill every time I think of my wine charms traveling the world and putting smiles on people’s faces when they open their gifts. THAT is Charmed By Wine. It’s the warm fuzzy feeling of being loved by family and friends, of taking a minute just for you (Treat yo’self!), and of celebrating the small successes of everyday life.

BRINGING CHARMED BY WINE TO YOU.
By nature I am an extremely organized, logical, perfectionist, introverted, ISTJ to a ‘t’ kind of person. I live by to-do lists, and when things get really busy and stressful, my to-do lists have to-do lists (It’s sort of a problem…). What that means for YOU is that I’m pretty darn good at figuring out this day to day life business, and I have no problem sharing that knowledge. We all need help sometimes – especially when our day to day life includes way too many jobs. Mom/Dad, Household Manager, Therapist, Teacher, Chef, Personal Assistant, Maid, Handyman, Interior Decorator, Magician, Ninja….I could go on, but I won’t. Instead, LET ME HELP.
