Challenge yourself with MONIN’s #HomeMix Creativity Contest

If there is any good that has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the rise of creative expression through various art forms all across the world. Most of us have now improved our skills in photography, videography, art, music, cooking, baking, brewing coffee, fermenting kombucha, or more!
