I have left the Bead Mavens group. Now that doesn't mean I am retiring, giving up the beads, closing my Facebook page, selling all my stock, or sailing off into the sunset!
Three months ago I wasn't a Bead Maven, then I was, and now I'm not - it's that simple, nothing sinister happened, and the Bead Maven's will still go from strength to strength without me, I'm just not a 'group' kind of person. I was the one with the school report which read 'doesn't play nicely with the other children', which is normally a prerequisite for an Artist.
So, to summarise, I am not dead, I am still beading, I am still poor and impoverished, and I am still curmudgeonly. I thank you. Peter has left the building.
