University of Dayton alum nicknamed Andi. UD + Andi = udandi
udandi is pronounced “you dandy” and always spelled with lowercase letters.
I started this blog in 2006 after retiring the online shop that had been previously at this URL. At that time, I only knew a few other online craft businesses. I had to teach myself CSS and PHP in order to implement a secure shopping cart. Then, I had to find and convince strangers without social media’s popularity to buy my goods. For perspective, today a computer novice can log into etsy and within minutes share with her social media circles that she’s in business.
I love my family and friends, I enjoy living in Cincinnati, and working out at the gym (indoor cycling, yoga, pilates, strength training), with DVDs at home or at the parks. I purchased my house in 2009 and am not afraid of a home improvement project and get a thrill wheeling and dealing at garage sales and flea markets. Music, photography, DIY, crafts, libraries, and packing my lunch also occupy my time.
Fellow bloggers: I write this blog because I enjoy sharing. If you find something you like (an idea, one photo or a snippet of content) and would like to share on your site, please link back to my site with credit. Thank you.
I participate in blogger outreach opportunities because I enjoy working with organizations and companies that align with my interests. I work full-time outside of writing and creating social communities for udandi and Lunch It Punch It.
