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

Art and Soul, Portland

My first class was with Judy Wise www.judywise.com I have taken classes with Judy before and they were amazing..and this was no exception. I love working with polymer clay, so this was fun! My "girl" is the one with the gauzy skirt and pink roses, hence the name "Rosie" - after my beloved Auntie Rowena (Rosie) in Louisiana. I also took classes from Susan Lenart-Kazmer and Lisa Call - equally wonderful classes in jewelry making. What a great week!
