About Me

My photo
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

This is the only photo I have of my mother (Georgiana) and myself,..when I was almost three years old. She died shortly thereafter. I soldered this necklace inspired by Stephanie Lee, another artist at Art and Soul. I wasn't able to take the class, but I have her book,..and fumbled my way through the process...I'm really happy with the outcome, although I'm sure a class would have been really fun and helpful.
