Not what I expected
If I could get a refund for this "workshop"I would do so immediately. So beyond disappointed. Thought this would have video showing how to do the techniques, no think again. If you want perhaps the first few pages of the book to print out, that is what you are paying for. This is a huge joke even at a discount. Feel that I was ripped off big time. If you don't mind reading on how to do this, then you will be fine. If you are like me and want a video where the techniques are shown,don't purchase. Huge let down and will be thinking and double checking next time I purchase a workshop through these guys, if I purchase again! Review by Kimberly (Posted on 7/20/2018)
