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

I Heart YOU! "The fruit of the spirit is LOVE, JOY, Peace....Galations 5:22

Thank you to everyone who braved the heat and the "breeze" at the Buggy Barn Quilt Show" in Reardon this past weekend! Whew!  Mother Nature was not going to let summer go out quietly! I LOVE summer...but whoa...was it HOT!  The Buggy Barn is so awesome, so THANK YOU to the wonderful people who worked so hard all weekend to make it happen....lots of beautiful quilts swaying in the "breeze"....and "amber waves of grain"...as far as the eye could see. Great setting...
AND, a big shout out to the Patrick and his wife Kathy...who were my saving grace neighbors at the show...without them, my canvas tent would have been in the next county....God Bless You!
The next show for Southern Charm will be at the Custer's Arts and Crafts show in November 2011 at the Spokane County Fairgrounds....until then I will be visiting family and friends, watching our son play college soccer at Concordia University, an art retreat to rejuvenate my creative juices, celebrating our daughter's 23 birthday and of course working on new and fun designs for Southern Charm. Oh and throw in a little kayaking, paddling, huckleberry pickin'....whew! Alot to pack in before ski season begins.....
I HEART all of you....
