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.
I had to stop crafting for a minute and am back up and running!! I have been crafting for over 20 years, that fact makes me feel really old!! I do a lot of mixed media, home decor, and tons of cards too. I have made almost everything I have hanging in my home right now...I'm pretty proud of that. I'm a stay at home Mom/crafter. Have 2 boys, 10 & 8, a husband, roommate, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5,000 guppies, and as of today 2 sugar gliders for the summer. I'm also attending college online right now. I'm getting my BA in psychology. I honestly spend most of my day in my studio because that is after all where I'm happiest!!
Hello, my name is Tammy Santana and I am so excited to be a part of the Bowdabra Creative Team. My background is in interior design and product development. I have always been creative, love to work in many different areas of design, and enjoy working with different mediums and tools. I am constantly challenging myself to try new things and reach outside my comfort zone. I live in beautiful Southern California with my husband of 17 years and our creative 10 yr old daughter.
Art, crafts and writing have always been my passions. Throughout the 90’s I designed and wrote craft projects for national craft publications such as “Crafts and Things”, “Pack O Fun,” and many more. I've had several of my creations featured on several Aleene’s Creative Living television shows and hardback craft books by the House of white birches. My blog, Make it easy crafts is based on my theory that life is busy so you just have to make it easy!
In conclusion, we hope you enjoyed meeting the designers of the all new Bowdabra design team and will return to see their creative projects in the coming months!
