After a week off to be with family and enjoy Thanksgiving I returned to Mixed Media Monday feeling refreshed and happy.  I was ready to get creative and paint with everyone!  I was also excited to share my new book, “Where will you be Five Years from Today” and ring in December with my “Five Values”.
