Free: Holiday gift tags by Maiko Nagao







Here's another freebie for you all! Holiday gift tags so your pressies can be as spunky as can be. If you like my wrapping idea, it's super easy! All you have to do is wrap your gift in white paper and use two strips of washi tape. Gotta love washi! x






Make sure you print on a thick A4 card and set it to 'fit to page' when printing.  
*Please note the gift tags are for personal use only and not to be sold or redistributed. Thank you!

PicPokket dslr camera bags - a must for every spunky dslr owner!


Have you seen our DSLR PicPokket dslr camera bags yet? My mum is the super talented woman behind the scenes hand-sewing these babies away. Isn't she amazing?

PicPokket dslr camera bags gives new life to old unwanted clothes. We wash them with enviro-friendly soap and upcycle the materials in a bid to reduce textile waste. PicPokket is seriously so compact, light and practical that you can pop it into your bag OR hang it around your neck and it's instantly scratch proof. Trust me, you can say goodbye to those ugly, black and bulky standard camera bags!

Each PicPokket is handmade (by my mum) and one-of-a-kind as it is limited to the amount of material we have at the time so be in quick!

Would make a great Christmas gift!

I hope you love it as much as I do! It's a must for EVERY spunky DSLR owner.

Comes in 2 sizes to fit all! Check out other funky PicPokket designs here!

Let's move to Okinawa! By Maiko Nagao









Last year, my entire family and I went on a holiday to Okinwawa. Okinawa is a group of sub tropical islands in southern Japan. Oh my goodness, we all instantly fell in love with this place. The people are ridiculously down to earth and incredibly kind. Oh, and do I even need to mention the pristine white sand beaches! So, when my parents decided Okinawa was the place to build their dream holiday home I jumped at the opportunity to help them design. It was challenging putting together ideas and plans from the other side of the world but we think we managed ok! We wanted to keep the look and feel of the home minimal. Our biggest inspiration was MUJI - the most amazing design concept brand from Japan.

So, our next plan is... figure out a way to make a living in this beautiful paradise, Okinawa so we can live there forever and ever!

Here is a list of DIY's we worked on:
1. Half floating kitchen shelves for plates and cups - Made by mum
2. Cinder block TV cabinet. Baskets as drawers for DVD's - Made by myself
3. Cusion covers - Fabric chosen by myself & sewn by mum
4. Coffee table with wheels - Made by dad
5. Bathroom sink wooden facade (to hide the washing machine) - Designed by myself and made by the whole family
6. Toilet paper holder and shelf - Made and designed by mum
7. Vase with shells collected from nearby beach - Made and designed by Atsuko
8. Clay 'Shisa' figures - Made and designed by the whole family

We are in the process of putting together the garden plan so watch this place!
