What a great contest to help remind us all that the little thins do make a big difference to others.

I know I can use a healthy dose of PAWS - positive attitude for the weary soul.

 Holiday Greeting Card Contest-APPRECIATION!

The Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul  group is holding a Holiday Greeting Card with the theme of APPRECIATION.  We are approaching the Thanksgiving Holiday and by time this contest ends we will be heading into the busy Christmas and New Year’s Holidays. 



1.     What better way to motivate yourself and others than to create a marketing Holiday Greeting Card for a client that you want to stay in touch with and appreciate their business? 

2.     How about a Holiday Greeting Card for another Real Estate Industry related Professional Vendor who you appreciate for their part in a smooth transaction?  

3.     A Holiday Greeting Card for your understanding family members for those long hours you spend putting your heart and soul into your work and appreciate their support.

4.     A Holiday Greeting Card for those ActiveRain Members and Staff who you’ve connected with and appreciate their help.

Hi Wanda, thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment. No special app was used to take the photos of the butterfly...I did crop the photo, once you do this it zooms in on subject.

Hi Michele, it's time for a newer post.  I have an idea for you.  Tell us why you're in Rocklin but doing Hawaii searches. Are you in transition?
