Sunshine Post :: Pikula Bags

Monday, June 25, 2012

Hello, dear readers. Inherent in the mission statement of The Bright Side Project is the unspoken belief that to “Do What You Love, Love What You Do” is an absolutely essential component in creating a happy and healthy lifestyle. Every now and then, we will ask our contributors to answer a few short questions on the ideas of happiness, creativity and sunshine. We hope these rays of light help inspire you to find the sunshine in your day, today and everyday.

Today we are honored to introduce you to Maja from Pikula Bags.

Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.

My name is Maja. I love objects that can contain other objects, vintage and a little bit forgotten, my grandmother and people who know how to work with their hands, mixed up, crazy Tel Aviv (where I live) and straight forward, calm Slovenia (where I come from).
PikulaBags is my bag making studio specializing in metal frame bags that have a touch of nostalgia, while owning a modern cut and colour. I sell my products on Etsy and a few selected stores in Slovenia and Israel.

We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?

Applies completely. It was a hard decision but after finishing veterinary studies I chose to make a living out of bag design, which is what I really love to do and I am not regretting it.

Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?

I was always a more quiet tomboy sort of a girl that bloomed in nature, where I am taking lots of inspiration from. I believe that beauty can be seen everywhere and in everyone, you just need to be ready to look for it.

On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?

Go out with my two kids and run a lot.

At this very moment, what are you most grateful for?

For a quiet moment with my cup of coffee.

Check back later today for an amazing giveaway from Pikula Bags!

    The greatest treasure hiding in your wallet is my little notebook. Although i have every digital means for writing memos and notes, i still love to write thoughts that come to mind, doodles, addresses, things i want to remember etc. with a pencil on paper 🙂

    The greatest treasure  hiding in your wallet is a business card. Creates new friends and relationships and helps increase whats in your wallet. When someone else comes across the card you handed out “another mans junk is another mans treasure” 🙂

    It’s so nice to hear of somebody who derailed their plans and ended up completely happy with the result. I love that you were bound for veterinary work and yet weren’t afraid to change course. Beautiful work, too!
