About Me

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

Studio Time...

I've been in my studio for a few days getting some orders out...I just LOVE the whole process.....especially decorating the boxes so they look kind of personal....a box just isn't a box anymore!!
One of my favorite things in my "spot" (besides my beloved Weller) is the vintage postal box that I scooped up at the Farm Chicks show in Spokane a couple of years ago. I mounted it on the wall vertically, then used it to house my stamp collection. Just love the peeling white paint, knowing that it served many a resident in its heyday delivering handwritten mail (remember those??). Love things with H I S T O R Y!! I wish I could say that my studio is deserving of a spot in the "Where Women Create" magazine...but..well - it's just my messy, wonderful spot where I spend an inordinate amount of time. It's complete with my little bunny mug of coffee...

Love your studio... envy your time in it! BTW - horses get these long hairs under their jaws in the winter... their beards! They usually lose them when they start shedding out... or sometimes their neurotic owners clip them short! Love ya.
