Hello and welcome! I am Yana Smakula and I am thrilled you decided to stop by and look around.
Here’s a little bit about me:
I come from a small town in western Ukraine – Ternopil. Right now my hubby (Oles or Lesyk as friends call him) and I live in sunny Phoenix, Arizona.
I love to travel, I love to blog, I enjoy photography and (shhhh!) online games. I also like to read detective stories.
I used to live in USA (in Las Vegas, NV) when I was teen and I fell in love with this country (I was a foreign exchange high school student, this is where I learned a lot of my English, although I studied it since the 1st grade).
I love to make cards and enjoy trying new products and techniques, experimenting and creating in different styles. My other passion is scrapbooking and I mostly scrapbook about our travels (I often take long pauses from scrapbooking when I have no new travel photos to scrapbook).
You can find me online here:
