About Me

Sandpoint, Idaho, United States
I've been married to Chet for 26 years...we have two children together and Chet came into our marriage with two children! (all together, we have 2 girls and 2 boys!) 31, 29, 23 and 21 years old. Yikes! I can't believe I am old enough to have kids those ages! I was born in Louisiana where my Grandparents were cotton sharecroppers and I'm very proud of my cajun heritage. The photo above is my mother, Georgiana Smith Linde at 8 years old. She passed away when I was very young, but she carries on in my heart forever... My hubby supports my endless rabbit trails of creativity and he gets extra "points" for that! Thank you for visiting my swirly glittered- up world filled with paint, glass & ribbon...share the love...leave a comment! Email me! I'd love to hear from you! sharifrench@gmail.com

Thank you God! (and i really, really mean that!)

Ok, so 2008 is really starting out with a bang! Or is it a sound of tires screeching around a blind curve??
Jacki (Megan's mom) and I just returned from Pullman (3 hours away) to retrieve our darling 18 year old daughters who were driving home from Washington State U. looking at the campus for consideration. They hit black ice in Megan's "Dodge intrepid" and did 360's , going airborne, two rollovers and landing on its lid. both girls were wearing seatbelts and came out of it with bumps and bruises. they were suspended in their seatbelts upside down. passersby who happened to be medics helped them out of the car, then the police, fire and other medics arrived to help. Thank you to everyone who kept our girls safe! A local family took our girls to their home (everyone knows everyone in the palouse) until we arrived. It was a long day. Thank you God for taking care of our girls.
