Gail Griffin

Hi! I’m Gail, a blogger at Purple Hues and Me! I enjoy crafting/DIY, sewing, upholstery, reading, travel and sometimes cooking. I also love the color purple – can’t you tell? I’m married to a wonderful man I first met at vacation bible school when we were teens.  We have one son, the writer, and live in an active adult community where I have “Let’s Get Crafty” sessions in the community clubhouse. My background is in marketing, property management, and retail management. My talented Mother-in-Law introduced me to crafts. We had a small craft business where she would create craft items and I would find places to sell them. You’ll find most of my creations are easy to follow tutorials on how to create unique, eye-catching crafts that are simple to make, inexpensive and require no special skills.
