Hello, I’m Andria and just recently moved back to Southern California after spending ten years on the Central Oregon Coast. I live with Tony, my boyfriend of 14 years, and our Chihuahua-Pug mix Frazier (named after the boxer Joe Frazier). He's quite crazy, I think he got all the craziness from both breeds, but he makes us laugh. That's his picture as my avatar.
I’m not working at the moment, but am volunteering at my local hospital. I didn't realize how hard the job market was until I moved and now realize what people have been talking about!
I am new to the ATC world, but am very excited about learning more, creating more, and trading with others.
• Crafting • Laughing Hard (where your cheeks hurt and your belly is sore the next day!) • Organization • Cooking • Traveling • Paper and pens • Spicy foods • Reading (I LOVE my Amazon Kindle!) • Fall weather (not too hot/not too cold) • Small Decorative Boxes • ATCs • Trees/Nature/Woodland Animals • Small Birds • Dia de los Muertos • Favorite Color: Green, but also love autumn colors as well. • Art History • Any Historical Figures interest me
DISLIKES: • Kawaii • Anime • Clowns
Obviously my list of likes/dislikes is a work in progress. As I learn more about what's out there and how I respond, I'll be more precise. :-)
I’m an 80’s Music junkie!
I love pretty much all music; my husband's favorite is Country, so that's what I listen to most. I’m not a big fan of most Rap, so that would be my least favorite, but anything else is fine.
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Series (am in the middle of the last book), Fantasy Series (Dragons of Pern books, Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings), Detective Novels/Mysteries/Suspense, The Last Manchu: The Autobiography of Henry Pu Yi, Last Emperor of China (the movie “The Last Emperor” was based on this book as was good as well), Historical Fiction, Historical Biographies – particularly of King Louis XIV (The Sun King) and his court. I now own a Kindle, and I just love it! (but still enjoy REAL books!). I think we can live with both. :-)
I have lots of shows that I enjoy watching. All of the CSI’s, House, Chuck, Grey’s Anatomy and numerous sitcoms including Modern Family, Cougar Town, Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, etc.
I love the invention of the DVR; I have so many shows recorded that I don’t have time to watch live, and then I can have a mini-marathon of my favorite shows.
I have lots of favorites…a big fan of 80’s movies with the “Brat Pack.” Love Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey (K-Pax was AWESOME!!) I also love "Love, Actually". Really too many to mention!
I have always dabbled in art, including painting, paper-mache, sewing, needlework, jewelry-making and French beaded flower, etc. I can't wait to see what happens next and where this leads. :-)
