Think it's back today...free word titles and template.

Hoping it's back anyway. The mojo helped me finish 2 templates, one that I had started and another one that just needed to be saved as PNG's. I also made these little word titles to share. Hopefully you like them and find them useful.

The word titles came about due to a workshop I'm taking right now. It's all about building a sense of community within the classroom and making children feel safe and an important member of the group. We are doing some team building activities and have been put in groups for some activities. Now I do a lot of large and small groups in my job but love having different perspectives and the opportunity to learn something new or a twist on something old is welcomed by me. I really enjoy my job and if I can take it back and bring a sense of community to a classroom, or group of students then I am a happy person. One particular thing the instructor is discussing and reminding us of is appreciation statements. It is so true that we take things for granted and many times do not stop to make a simple "I appreciate that......". Amazing how easy it is to do and the effect it has on a person is incredible.

This has inspired me (gosh knows I have needed some positive inspiration in my personal life lately) to set a goal of giving my son an 'I appreciate' daily. I tell him I love hime every day, and I do let him know how proud I am of him...........but I also take for granted that he's a good kid and don't necessarily stop to take that few extra minutes daily to tell him so.

My question to you is, 'What have you learned this week?'

Here are some previews from Scrap Orchard. I just love their stuff and have just downloaded Ziggle Designs Topsy Curvy. But I see she's coming out with a new kit this Friday called Happy (saw the preview over at DST) and will have that on my wish list. So take a peek, all items are linked, except the new one. Don't forget the new stuff comes out on Friday and always with a sale!!

Kami will also be offering a special deal on her blog if you purchase Happy, so go check it out.

Here are the words titles I mentioned and a template. Hope you like them. I appreciate all the kind words you have left for me here on my blog and at 4Shared. I also appreciate that you like my work and download it :)

One more thing before I sign off on today's post. Don't forget to hop on over to Sunshine Studio Scraps this Friday for some fun. I can't even give you hint.......that's right, I don't have any 'inside' information and it's killing me that I don't know who the mystery designer is. All I've been told is that I will really like the kit and the designer..................have put some feelers out, asked a few questions. No hints, I have an idea but it won't be confirmed or denied so I have to wait until Friday as well. The one piece of info I do have is to bring pictures of kids looking 'cool' as in 'Joe Cool', thumbs up cool.
