Friend Of The Week – Gail Griffin

Corrogated DIY Box Vase

This week, Gail Griffin of Purple Hues And Me returns to the Spotlight as our Friend Of The week – and she’s sharing a DIY project that is going to knock your purple socks off!

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting Gail, she is an extremely gifted crafter and do-it-yourselfer who enjoys sewing, reading, traveling, and once in a blue moon, cooking.

Of course, you’re probably wondering why Gail is so passionate about all things purple. She she it’s because the color has a calming effect on her!

One of the more amazing projects that Gail has created of late is her Corrugated Cardboard and Jute Twine Vase, which started out as an ordinary cardboard box. Be sure to check out her tutorial – I promise, you’ll never look at an ordinary cardboard box the same way again!

While you’re there, be sure to congratulate Gail on being our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy – she truly deserves it!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Did you enjoy meeting Gail and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?

Be sure to leave a comment as we’d love to get to know you better – and be sure to share our Friendship Friday party with all of your friends!

    Hello, I am new to your blog hop but really excited to see all the new sites and becoming part of this community, as well as take advantage of your new Social Boost for Facebook. It’s great to be part of your community and I hope that your friends here enjoy my contribution. I work with single Moms in the UK and try to help Women raise strong, independent Men to be, particularly, boys of color. (I am from Ghana.)
    Thanks for providing this format, recommended to me from my friend Diane, who has hopped with you 🙂
    Hope to make new friends here
