I'll introduce myself so you know a bit about me!
I am Dana and I live in Melbourne, Victoria. I am the 'little spoon' from our about us page and my partner Drew is the 'big spoon'. I have always been a lover of organisation, home decor, clean spaces, craft and DIY. It wasn't until my partner Drew one day suggested that instead of buying items to organise our house I should make my own. So I started doing that and absolutely loved the creative process, so we decided to start Dana Ink and share my enjoyment with others. We have been running almost for a year now and have had some really fun/creative projects along the way.
For me the time I spend crafting and DIYing is an opportunity to learn but also is a form of meditation for me, I find it super relaxing! I decided that starting a blog would be fun (whether anyone reads it or not haha!), to share my tips & tricks for home organisation/DIY, recipes (I am fructose intolerant, dairy intolerant, gluten intolerant & allergic to nuts!), photos of our adorable puppy (BECAUSE who doesn't love puppy spam!), travel and anything lifestyle.
