Take a Wish

I received one of the most memorable birthday presents for my 60th birthday.  As well as a surprise visit by my brother and sister-in-law, they bought me a beautiful bowl and filled it with 60 wishes for me to enjoy for the next 60 days.

Take A Wish
I am having so much fun everyone morning, starting my day with their wish, that I decided to adapt it for my business.  Why not have a wish bowl with a sign “Take A Wish”  for my customers?
 
I do wish good things for my customers, so why not tell them? 
 
If you would like to have a “Take A Wish” bowl for your customers, I will share mine with you, feel free to print and use them.
