Hi there and welcome to my blog!

I’m thrilled to see you here! First let me introduce myself. My name is Svitlana but on the Internet I’m also known as Izolda. Born in Ukraine and been living there almost all my life until came to USA in 2010 to become a happy wife of the best man on the planet. We live on NYC (Brooklyn). I’m a software developer and that is how I pay my bills, but also love my job a lot.

I have always enjoyed creating. Among my hobbies you can find decoupage, cross-stitching, altered art. In 2009, shortly before moving to US, I found scrapbooking and cardmaking and constantly fell in love. A couple months later I created this blog as a place to share my creations. In scrapbooking and cardmaking I tried different styles, but finally settled with what is most appealing to me – CAS (clean and simple).My blog content has changed with time as well. Now in addition to creative posts I write about life in US, making photo filled posts from NYC (although these are in Russian only, as the content is Russian readers-oriented).
