  • “You are terrific!  I don’t have a Christmas card list, but if I did, you would be on it!  However, I can pray for you & your business to prosper–although I can’t imagine that you don’t already have more work than you need!  Your attitude, helpfulness and knowledge make a formidable package!”

  • “I am just looking over our website again. It is phenomenal in my opinion. I have also heard many compliments about it already.

    I will be honest with you, I was not excited to start working on a totally new website. But, you made the experience extremely pleasant and workable. We really appreciated that.

    Plus, your support and answer to all of our questions and problems (most of them being of our own creation) has been really, really great.

    Thank you for everything!”
    Dan Altena - Sioux County Sheriff

Under Anitra’s care, our site has exceeded our goals in drawing business and visitors alike.  We couldn’t be happier and I have since recommended Anitra to colleagues who are enjoying the same great experience. I can’t recommend enough her design expertise, prompt response and ease to work with.”

  • “My name is Denny Somers I am an owner/member of a Wireless ISP called Webb Wireless, LLC, we contracted with Blue Lake Websites for our internet web site design. I must say dealing with Anitra was a great experience. We had very little idea of what we really wanted to do or include on our site. Anitra was very helpful and delivered a product that was most useful for our needs and for our customer’s use. Since that project I worked with Anitra on two non-profits that I sit on the board, Riverside Church and Special Youth Challenge Ministries of Iowa and again Anitra’s expertise and visionary design work went way beyond my expectations. Anitra is also very helpful in the tech support and changes made to these sites. I would recommend Anitra and Blue Lake Websites to anyone.”
    Denny Somers - Webb Wireless
  • “A website proves immeasurable to an animal shelter.  Not only does it serve as a platform to market our pets looking for forever families through adoption, it also serves as a community resource to people with lost/found pets, experiencing training/behavioral issues with their pet, to volunteer or simply get involved in animal welfare. With our shoestring budget, Anitra Larsen of Blue Lake Websites created an innovative, whimsical and thorough website in which our all-volunteer organization can maintain.  When you log on to www.emmetcountyanimalshelter.org you can’t help but get the warm “fuzzies” for the plight of homeless pets. I greatly appreciate Anitra’s attention to detail, professionalism, innovation, follow-through and passion.  If you’re in the market for a new website, I’d highly suggest Blue Lake Websites!”
