About Andie Williams – Owner & Head Designer
My name is actually Andrea, I frequently go by Andie – a name assigned by my husband when we were dating. I’ve always spelt it with the “ie” as this spelling, according to my husband, makes it more feminine. Feel free to call me either of those names. I am a mother of 2 gorgeous kids who we proudly adopted in Spring 2010. My little man, Makaio was born May 2008, and my daughter Amaris was born September 2009.
I love to cook – especially “throw it all in the pan” kind of dishes. I love a good sandwich and dill pickles are a must. I love International food. Indian, Ethiopian, Mexican and Vietnamese are delicious along with a really good Colombian meal! I love unique coffee shops, even though I don’t drink coffee. I always want a cold drink. I drink too much Diet Coke, especially with lime.
I don’t like to clean and I’m kind of messy. When I paint, cook, design… I’m messy. I speak Spanish, conversational Spanish… I’m still working on my grammar! I love to watch movies. Comedies, Action, Drama, Thriller – I’m there. I spend too much time on pinterest. I love it. A lot. I really like tattoos. I have two sets of tattoos: shooting stars on my foot and phaeleonopsis orchids on my back. So many more to come…
I have been to 23 countries on 5 continents. I’ll get to Africa one day! I love warm weather and I am not a fan of winter. I love the beach and I love to surf… Hawaii specifically. Everyone says I belong in Southern California with it’s perfect weather. I love Ben Harper. He’s my favourite musician. His albums are on my playlist that I listen to while I design.
