About Dana Tatar

6Dana Tatar I am a stay-at-home mom currently living in Ohio with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 12 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything, including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music, and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound.
