Get to Know... Kaz Style

Lately, I've had Japan on my mind because very soon, I will be heading over there to see cherry blossoms, temples and bullet trains. So in honor of that, I want to introduce you to my friend Kaz who is the designer behind Kaz Style. She makes beautiful pouches and jewelry using Japanese fabric and vintage obis and kimonos. Here is a little bit about her, and she is also giving away a little something from her shop to one lucky winner. Read on to get the details.
I am... Japanese, a wife of Sake sommelier, a designer, and kimono stylist.

I was... a fashion designer for a while.

I will be... back to Japan someday in the future. I miss my family all the time...

My passion is... creating (producing?) something original, beautiful, and enjoyable.

Many people don't know that... I am a good swimmer. When I was 5th ~ 9th grade, I often participated swimming competitions and made records and got some trophies.

I'd like to learn...
to speak English more fluently without my Japanese accent! LOL
I'd also like to learn about Japanese culture and arts, for example flower arrangement (ikebana), tea ceremony (sado), calligraphy (shodo), etc.

I can't believe I... have been living in the US for almost a half of my life. (but my English is soooo bad!!)
f I won the lottery...
I would not tell anyone! lol... I would live like as usual...

I'd like to thank... my family for always encourage me and help me to become the person I am today.
