Though I introduced the furry portion of the Vivi Dot family some time ago I think it's now time to put some faces to the names I often refer to on this blog. I'll also give you some insight into who does what.
This is my Grandma Dorthy (aka Dottie or Dot). She's literally the 'Dot' in Vivi Dot and is easily my biggest fan. Every time I talk to her she reminds me how much she loves the watch necklace I recently gave her and she's also been known to carry a book of Vivi Dot photos with her to show off to her friends. This is my boyfriend Duncan (aka Dunbar). He's also my roommate, the father of my dog Indy and kitty Olive and my full time partner in crime. He's a film editor by day (and sometimes night), makes awesome graphics for buttons (from Tim Gunn to psychedelic bananas), and can always be counted on to pick up the slack in the button pressing department when I'm going crazy getting ready for a show. I don't even have to ask him to join me at all of my shows around town. He's always there to help pack, drive, unpack, set up, drink beer and slang Vivi Dot stuff with the rest of us. Oh and he's also been known to work as my shipping manager when the timing works out.These are my good friends Allie and Summer (and me in the middle). We met while dancing in a hip hop dance group about 5 years ago. We're no longer with the group, but we find ourselves dancing pretty much anywhere it's allowed. As far as Vivi Dot goes they are my button pressing queens and booth attendant extraordinaires. They know the merch, the prints, and the business like it's their own and their dedication and support is incredible. I pay them in food, alcohol and Vivi Dot merchandise which makes it a great deal for me. This is me, Molly. I'm the owner and designer of Vivi Dot. I come up with new products, choose the prints, cut all of the fabric circles, glue all the findings onto the buttons, design the packaging, create and maintain the website, blog and online store and all of the other business stuff that goes along with Vivi Dot. That's it! Though there are other people that contribute from out of state whenever they can (my Mom Pam and sister Emily) that sums up the Vivi Dot family. Yay Vivi Dot team!
