Explore class Days 2-4

Well I am sitting here patiently waiting for the last prompt of the week on the Explore class that I am doing so I thought I'd share my journey so far, I look at everyone elses projects and they look so much better than mine but I really am learning to love what I've done without comparing it to others work! I particularly loved Prompt 4 which was about "Perfection" I think I am continually disappointed in myself because I could always have done something better, but being the best isn't important, enjoying the journey to the end result is what I believe is most important and that is what I am going to do from now on:-)

Prompt 2 was about Postcards, so I made my own, It's not the greatest postcard in the world but It represents the things I love and if Wendy land existed this is what it would look like - Cooking, Growing and Making.

On the back you had to write about your greatest adventure, I've done many daring things in my life, Bungee jumping etc... but believe it or not a little camping trip had the most impact on my life so that's what I wrote about and then posted it to myself. My Husband can't stop laughing at the thought of all of the workers at the sorting office passing it round having a good laugh lol!!!

So Prompt 3 was about trying something new and trying it with maps. I took some old holiday maps and covered some chipboard letters with them, this was a new technique for me and I really like them, I also had to make things out of circles of maps so I made some flowers in different ways.

And the last Prompt was No 4 which was about what is perfect in your life at the moment, I like this list it's a very positive list for me and I know it is going to grow so I've left plenty of space. The picture is of a chocolate cake I made a few weeks ago and I am so proud of it :-)

Thanks for looking

Wendy :-)

Your postcard and playbook are just beautiful! This is a great class so far.

Thanks for your comment on my blog about my best friend. I am fortunate to still have her.

Scrummy cupcakes and baking. The explore class has been thought provoking so far hasn't it? Enjoyed reading your post.
