Well, after a mild May and first half of June here in Arizona, it hit 112 yesterday and expected to be around that all week. On the good side, I have reconnected with three of my cousins via Facebook. Lynda, Tenna and Leanna were quite a bit younger then I was so we didn't run around with the same crowd and when I went away to college, I pretty much lost connection with them. Anyway, I am happy to be back in touch with them and wanted to give them a little background on how I got into making jewelry. Here's a blog entry I made a couple of years ago: http://www.silverspringdesignz.com/blog/acknowledgements.
