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

Thank you Renee!




Attending Art retreats are more than just creating...it's about meeting people with common interests...and art is all over the "board",..meaning you can express yourself in so many mediums...but we all have a common thread -
Last October, Vickie and I met Renee, from Oklahoma and it's like we've known her forever! Actually, Vickie met Renee first...then I chimed in, and well...sisters three! We planned on the Las Vegas retreat together and had another great trip!!
Lo and behold...after my return home...I get a HUGE box in the mail with this amazing wire "thingy"...and after consulting my neighbor at an art show..he informed me that it's original life was as a scarf/hat holder in probably what was a country store. So...even though I was already enthralled with it (and USING it in my show), I loved it even more! So thank you Renee, and also for the cute doll heads!!! I hope these photos give my wire "thingy" due praise, because it's just SO sweet!

It's PERFECT! Probably something you can only find in Oklahoma - like a good friend named Renee! Yea, Renee. Yea, Shari, for making such GREAT jewelry - I'm thrilled to be part of the three sisters.
