FAIRY MERRY RETREAT....fun...laughs...and creativity

So this year Gecko Galz held our annual retreat at the Deepwoods retreat center in Smithville Texas it was a weekend of fun, creativity and making new friends.

our lovely ladies: Trudi, Terri, Shera, Barbara, Shea, Norma, Katie, Christina, Jan, Jessica, Leanne, Donna, Heather, Penny, Marlann, Stephanie, Frances, Elizabeth and Cat (not pictured)

We had some amazing classes, make and takes, and challenges and the girls showed off their amazing talent by taking our ideas and expanding on them!

Our Charming Frame class and what some of the ladies did with their frames!

But the highlight of the weekend was when we had our fairy crown runway and all the ladies strutted their pixie crowns down the runway!
