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

Happy New Year!

I know...I've been very remiss at blogging...it's the Christmas season pace we keep...college kids home for break...trying to get last minute orders out...making sure that all is good in the world of Jalapeno's Restaurant...all good things...but it makes for a very busy Santa elf!
Kelsey flew back to BSU yesterday....and Tanner goes back to OSU on Sunday......it was fun to have "kids" around again with their friends and we've been having fun with our Wii! I have to brag that I'm pretty darn good at bowling..but not so much at the golf. I love the yoga too....so wierd how it measures your balance zone, etc. I'm feeling very "zen" lately...lol
This is our Christmas photo sans Jamelyn (in Texas) and Travis (in Maui) taken ON Christmas in front of our home on the frozen lake. Tanner styled the photo and we had to get down on the ice for a few shots. brrr! Then we skated around (without skates) - it was such a beautiful day!
I wish you the very best 2010! I've made a decision to (try) blog every day in 2010, even if it's a little blog-bleep....!!
