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

Christmas in March?

No, this isn't an old post...just Christmas in March! I've been meaning to finish this for awhile now...so while my hubby was watching the college basketball announcements (Gonzaga U. is playing in BUFFALO!)I thought I'd sneak this in and present it at my next show....it's always prudent to be early, right? This piece is created with vintage anagram letters (I applied vintage music on the backside of each letter so it would be equally beautiful from the back) and beveled glass. The back glass is flat. I carefully wrapped each piece with copper tape, soldered, then added the little solder beads. I think the beads really add "umph" to the piece. Of course, it wasn't complete until red bling was added with a few glass pearl beads. Voila!
