When you create websites for others, the last thing you want to do at the end of the day is doing any work on your own site. A case of the cobbler’s children going barefoot.
However, in the past, there have been articles in the paper while not mentioning my service by name, have praised the work that I have done on the site. I share these with you here.
Rosemary Jenkins Pottery
Rosemary makes the most beautiful functional bowls, plates and huge platters. We worked together and she has had lots of comments about her new site. Check it out at rosemaryjenkinspottery.ca
Sorry it has taken me so long to write this. I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you and tell you how happy I am with my new website.
It was a pleasure working with you. You were very patient with me an treated me with respect even though I am basically computer illiterate.
Your gentle and supportive nature mixed in with your sense of humour made working together on this project a delight.
You were very professional and the website exceeded my expectations because of your great suggestions. My customers give me lots of positive feedback on my new website and you even managed to teach me how to update it.
I would recommend your expertise to anyone wanting to improve their business’ image and branding. You have continued to offer me support even after I have paid you. You also launched my site on time which was critical to my business.
Thanks again Mary for all you have done for my business.
All the best,
Lianne Megarry – Dark Horse Studios
You must visit this fun shop. Part antiques, part curiosity and part art showroom, it has something for everyone. Plus book readings, and palm readings from time to time!
“Once again, thank god for Mary! I have lost count on how many compliments I get about my website. I always tell them about you!”
Debra is a very talented woman who was interviewed for the local arts publication, The Humm. The interviewer had this to say about her website.
“On www.debratatesears.com, her beautifully executed website, a click on Galleries followed by a click on Pastoral take you to Debra’s explanation of her fascination with the Canadian Landscape.”
Debra tells me that the interviewer had used her website in order to research her before visiting and mentioned how lovely it was a few times.

United Way for the City of the Kawartha Lakes
This was a lovely project working with the women who run the United Way for our City. As is my usual way of working, we sat down together and discussed what they wanted on the site, and I went away and set up a template for them. Working together we arrived at the site that is available today.
An article in our local paper, written by Deb Bartlett, who works at United Way was very complementary. In the article it said
“We think the new site is crisp and looks fresh, we’re hoping this design makes it easy to find what you want. Staff at United Way are grateful for all the help we’ve had in getting this site up and running.”
They are now able to update the site with an Adobe program called Contribute, which saves them money and allows them to update it “on the fly”.
