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

Sisters are Special!!

My sister Shelley is 8 years younger than me..but we are very close even though I had moved out (and to another state, no less) when she was still young and at home.
I adore her and she just married her best friend, John - the wedding was so beautiful!
I also have "adoptive" sisters and we have SO much fun together and share many family memories that make me who I am today. (ok, a bit quirky...but to know me is to love me..)Just goes to show you that Sisters Are Special, no matter how you "get" them!
Here is a photo of Sisters Charm Necklaces that I made for a sweet customer from the Vintage Finds and Handmade Treasures show that I did this past weekend! It was great fun and the vendors were of amazing creativity and quality! It was like a "mini farm chicks" - no commercial products...just all handmade goodness!!
I won't say the "sister customer's" name just in case they are a surprise gift for her SEVEN sisters! Yes, I said SEVEN!! I can only guess that it was pretty difficult to get bathroom mirror time in that household growing up!

Hi Shari!

Thanks for being a vendor in our show! I enjoyed chatting with you and reminiscing about Sandpoint. We will give you a call the next time we are up that way and maybe we can do lunch!
