Hello, my name is Julia! I am a new facilitator at Global Cafe and am greatly enjoying my time conversing with all of you! Everybody who comes into the Cafe is wonderfully unique, and I love hearing about your various interests and experiences!
Lately you may have noticed something new at the register…my cards! I have been making cards for awhile now, and I am honored to have my creations displayed at Global Cafe. I hope you will buy some for friends, family members, even your co-workers, and send them some love with a kind, encouraging note.
When I was little, I wanted to be an artist. In a way, I get to be an artist on the front of every card! I use materials such as paper, washi tape, and stamps to create fun designs that will make people smile. Back in America, I often went to Japanese stores like Daiso to get cute, colorful supplies. Now that I live in Japan, I don’t have to travel far to access some of the best items for crafts! I’ve always been proud to be Japanese-American because Japanese goods are seriously amazing!
If you ever need help writing a card to someone, just ask a facilitator here at the cafe. We can work on your card together! In this day and age, everyone tends to be glued to a screen, so it’s nice to be surprised with some *snail mail. I find handwritten messages extra special because you know the person took time out of their day to write to you and then send it in the mail or deliver it in person. Cards are a fantastic way to reach out and tangibly show someone you care.
My brand of cards is called “Tach of Love” because Tachibana is my last name…Tach…Touch…get it? It’s a pun! (Play on words). Anyway, show someone a “Tach” of love today!
