Diana has been the most accessible and reliable “computer person” we have ever worked with! She has created several websites for different businesses within our family . . . painlessly and very affordably. We are always tweaking things on our website, but, Diana doesn’t charge us for all that stuff that can really add up, she creates new environments for us to work within so that we can make the changes ourselves. What a concept for the small business owner!

In 2007, when I decided I needed a website to go with the book I was writing, a friend referred me to Lavender Threads. I have been in the healthcare field for over 30 years and although I am good with computers, I had no idea how to begin. I met with Diana Nichols and the process just seemed to flow effortlessly, due to the excellent level of communication we developed in that very first meeting. Because I lived 3 hours from Atlanta, the rest of our work was done via telephone and email. A few months later, I found myself moving to California. Despite being on the other side of the country now, Diana and I have been able to manage and update my site, as needed. I never got one grey hair from the entire process! Thanks, Diana!

It is a pleasure and reassuring to work with someone who has tremendous integrity. Diana is very patient, prompt, listens and works within my budget. She has helped both my colleague and myself to be able to do some of the work for ourselves. Very empowering.

Diana set up our website about 6 months ago. I am not a ‘computer person’ and the thought of maintaining the website seemed completely out of reach. Diana knew I could handle it and her calm manner along with lots of encouragement and great ‘cheat sheets’ gave me the confidence to take on the task. In spite of my intimidation, I was able to do much more than I had anticipated at first. Whenever I have a problem, Diana is a phone call away with a solution. Her prompt responses, innovative solutions and endless patience, even when I call about something she has already addressed, makes this a great collaboration. She is always there when we need something new, but we are empowered to do the daily maintenance for the site ourselves. It continues to be a joy doing business with her.

Diana is a first class web designer/administrator. It always amazes me how quickly and efficiently she ‘gets the job done’. I rely on Diana and she’s never let me down. It’s terrific to have a service provider/friend who values you and brings you great value! Diana’s the best.

I have hired Lavender Threads and Diana Nichols to do several projects that were internet and database development based projects over the past 10 years. Great companies are created from great people and Diana is one of the greatest people I have ever had the professional privilege to work with. She is currently creating the second database driven application that will be offered at a national level for my company. She is a web design engineer, a graphic designer and she has an inherently clear vision and connection to marketing concepts. Her work is driven by her philosophies and ‘cut and dry’ approach to doing business. She accounts for her time with a system that she created that removes the guess work from the invoicing process. I never have to second guess where we are on a project or where we stand in costs. Unlike the typical ‘artist’ type of designer, she gets it done without whining, moaning or running up your costs. Refreshing! Feel free to contact me for a reference and details about the projects and experiences that I have had with Lavender Threads as a company and Diana Nichols as a developer/designer and person.
