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

More Art and Soul, Portland



A photo of my "table" at the vendor show...that was a fun 3 hours of chatting, selling, buying & admiring other vendor goodies!
It was great meeting Lisa Call and Susan Lenart-Kazmer, both amazing artists! Also, fun to spend time with Renee (you are truly a sweetheart and felt like I've known you forever!) and of course, Vickie! This was our third year in a row meeting in Portland - always something to look forward to! we are entertaining the thought of going to Las Vegas in February, if we can get into Sally Jean's Tiara class!
Melissa was a walking store of "frozen charlottes" and I bought a bundle of baby charlottes. can't wait to use them in a necklace or?
off to watch my son's game via CBS sports gametracker! Sadly, we are not there in person as they are at Stanford this weekend and we weren't able to make the trip! :(
Have a great weekend! it's record breaking chilly here in North Idaho! brrrrrrr....hope it's warmer wherever YOU are!
