"I kept using the same old outdated program and I wanted to change the look of my website and have it function better with social media. So I signed up for a website class with Isabel Bay Design and Adrienne helped me to come up with this new design. It took me several months and I am still tweaking it but I am very happy with the new design. If any of you need help building your website, Adrienne Robineau is a very talented and experienced web guru. She also offers many classes for the do it yourselfer." —Diana Cronin, EggAndIPottery.com
