I’m a craft designer, consultant, author, teacher and currently the lead designer for Tombow. Can you tell, I LOVE all things crafty? Besides designing and creating, I LOVE teaching and sharing my knowledge with others – that is why I am so excited to join ThanksGreeting as the Creative Designer. ThanksGreeting makes sharing your creativity and connecting with others so easy.

A single word can say so much. These are some of our favourite words at ThanksGreeting and it was so fun to play with who came up for me when I thought of the word. Think of someone, pick a word and then share your gratitude by adding your own unique message inside. Send a creative word card to someone who moves you beyond words!
Who doesn’t love a cute little monster to brighten your day? Use my monster doodles as a jumping off place to send a monstrously cute greeting to your favourite little gremlins!
There is just something about quotes and calligraphy, isn’t there? I hope that you enjoy the creative collaboration with my dear friend Debra Quartermain. Debra always knows just the right thing to say and I so enjoyed doing the lettering for her Heart Felt messages. Use them to create your own ThanksGreeting and I hope they help you to brighten someone’s day – Marie
