Most Excellent Deal
I can't believe this deal - 6 DVD's by Lexi for about 10$ each. This is unbelievable. Such a deal for an excellent artist and instructor. Lexi is an exceptional instructor and very clear on what and why she does what she does. She also guides you through her instructions so you are very clear. She is extremely calm mannered and soft spoken so very easy to watch. Love her instructions and guidance. You will too!!
