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

It's Good to Be Queen



You may remember my button shadowbox necklaces...but I have been working on an entire line of shadowboxes...I love to make them! It is unlimited, but I have crosses, birdies, dragonflies, crowns, fleur d'lis, buttons, glitter....I'll be posted them soon! I'll be going to Vegas (yeah, baby!) for an art retreat/show in February..so I've been keeping busy. Also, I like to surprise my wholesale accounts with new things as often as possible. "My" stores always get the first look at new designs! If you are in the area, visit these darling boutiques...
