About Viv

Viv does a lot of blogging when she's not building websites.

more about Viv...


She didn’t just make me a beautiful site, she was great to work with, and if she ever rolled her eyes at me through all my tweaks and twitches and ‘yes, that’s almost it, but can we just try…’, I never once knew it.

Viv has done a wonderful job taking onboard my digital desires and creating a web presence even better than I imagined. She’s also done a great job of showcasing my photos. I still get a thrill reloading the page to see a new line up of pictures in the header.

YOU RULE: You do. We’ve voted and you rule by unanimous vote. Thank you again. I’m so happy to have run into you and grateful for your help!
