Yes, the Mavens are going into vacation mode for August.
August is very much a busy time for designers who teach, as class submissions need designing (myself included this year...eek) and quite honestly we need a break :)
Of course the blog will still be here and you can still access the many tutorials we have just in case you missed one.
When we come back we will be refreshed and chatty no doubt with info on our class schedules and new designs.
As you may know our designers sign up for a year and that year has come to an end for Patrick.....we thank him for his contributions, wish him well and hope life and beads bring him everything he deserves.
So...we'll be back....have a great August....don't forget the sun screen and we'll see you in September :)
