the weather was a little iffy,
but we still had fun!
here are pics of the somewhat damp
KIDS ROCK THE BLOCK PARTY
that was rescheduled for tuesday june 2 2015

REAGAN is 11 years old and has her own motto:
"bows are an obsession and dancing is a lifestyle"!
she loves ACTING
and recently she starred as CHARLIE
in the play "willy wonka & the chocolate factory"!

because she likes to argue...
she plans to take a "future lawyers course"

her favorite foods are steak and brocolli...
she has a black lab named SUGAR
and a chocolate lab named JUSTICE...
and she loves her baby brother CLYDE!
one of her favorite things to do
is to go FISHING with her dad...
one day she noticed how eye catching
the beads are that are used as fishing tackle...
she decided to string them up on fishing line
and even clamped it with a "sleeve"
which is also used in fishing...
ultimately, she created a beautiful necklace
that is completely made from fishing tackle
and that GLOWS in the dark
and incorporates the colors of the emerald coast
and is inspired by her fishing trips with her dad!
REAGAN'S line is called "hooked up jewelry"
and is available now at Gigi's!
recently we invited kids to design a charm
to be entered in the CHARM-IT! charm design contest!
they turned in some very creative designs!
did you know that five years ago,
during the very first CHARM-IT! charm design contest,
one of the winners came from our store!
and here are some of the artists
who are entering the contest this year:
i think it would be wonderful if CHARM-IT
would make a charm of the Gigi's cart...
but this drawing is by team member ASHLIN
who i'm pretty sure is past the age limit.
go to www.charm-it.com on may 20
to see the winning charms for 2015!
