Free Belated Thank You Card Printable

I’ve been in a very reflective mood these days, thinking about my new life here in Italy.

Life has definitely changed so much and even though months have passed, there is still so much more to get used to and learn.  I don’t know if I will ever get used to certain things, but I do love it here in Tuscany with the beautiful countryside, the Italian culture, history and art – not to mention the cuisine!

Quiting my job, getting married and moving here to settle down gave me the opportunity to try new things and figure out what I should do in life.  There are definitely ups and downs, but I choose to spend my time and energy in positive things, even if I have to deal with negative things (darn, life!)

20090813italiaPart of my new exploration is my creative endeavor of starting this blog,  even though I do not know where it will take me.

I only know that I must go forward with the things I love to do and keep experimenting to find my own way.

I am a creative with so many interests, that I’m often pulled in too many directions by my own doing!

The perfectionist-virgo-fearful-stalling-side of myself can stop me in my tracks a lot. But I have to keep going, if only in baby steps.


Everyone gets help along the way and I’ve certainly received much support from my husband, family and friends. I’ve also met wonderful people here on the internet. The online in the arts and craft community has really inspired me and led the way to new discoveries and revelations.

One such mentor is Marisa Haedike from Creative Thursday.

I found my way to her podcasts one day and was instantly hooked to her motivational advice, honest opinions and heartfelt story. It was a joy to learn more about her journey and how she made it to being a full-time artist. I was compelled to take her e-course this summer, In The Fish Bowl and it certainly has changed my life and perspective on many things.  I see all the possibilities around me and excited to move forward and urge others to do the same.

Even though the e-course has ended, I’m still swimming in my own little ocean of thoughts regarding where I am headed.  There’s room for all of us to succeed in our own way and getting real-life advice from Marisa has helped not only to inspire me, but also to see things in a realistic light as well.  Anyhow, I can ramble on and on…but you can hear it from a fellow classmate as well – maya*made!

Well, I’ve been so preoccupied with my own plans and getting friends to join me in pursuing our creative dreams that I realized I had not stopped to give Marisa a big thank you and shout out.  I felt sort of sad about missing the boat and not having been able to join the live chat at the end of the class. Missed opportunities!

Then I received an email from Marisa that a fellow fishie started a Yahoo group for those of us who took the e-course to stay in touch and I realized that I wasn’t the only one missing the class and the connections. Marisa just included a big thank you to all her followers and I realized something really important… it’s never too late to express your gratitude and say thanks!

I had to take a moment to shout out my gratitude to Marisa and all my fellow fishies who have taught me so much.  These thoughts were the inspiration for the snail thanks card design below.

It’s never too late to say thanks, so here is my belated thank you card printable design.

Feel free to use this belated thank you card for all those thank you’s you missed saying in real-time. Whatever your life might have been or if times were hectic, it’s never too late to go back and express your thanks.

I created this snail thanks card as a printable that you can download and print as many copies as you like.

A big thank you to Marisa and all the fishies in the e-course for a fantastic 6 week journey of creative learning and exploration. I sincerely wish you all the best and excited to see your dreams come to fruition!

I will continue to share here on my blog, which without Marisa and her e-course I might not have started in the first place!
