For the past 2 1/2 days I have been cleaning my office. This is not my studio, but my office which is in one of the bedrooms. This is also where I do my altered art. So...it took all this time to clean it because I had really not done any work in there for quite a while and let's just say it had gotten out of control. (That's putting it mildly) This afternoon, I sat down at my desktop computer (which I haven't used in months) and was so pleased that my desk was clean, the floor was clean, drawers were labeled, (you get the idea), that I decided to go online. Now let me ask you a question. Have you ever googled yourself? Me either. But for some reason, I decided to google C-Shore Creations and Your Stamping Cottage. I was really surprised by what I found. There are two amazing comments about Your Stamping Cottage on YELP.com and one amazing comment for C-Shore Creations on Yellowbook.com.
Now for those of you who don't know, my shop was originally called C-Shore Creations, inc. I then filed papers with the state changing the name to C-Shore Creations, inc dba Your Stamping Cottage. Thus two names.
I knew you could comment on businesses on YELP, but didn't know about Yellowbook. The following is what I found on www.yellowbook.com through google.
"Great Place and Customer Service
by Mia R
I went to Bellevue earlier this week looking for keepsake gifts for a bachelorette party I'm throwing. They have a couple of cute and unique shops that you can use for everyday gifts or use, but not quite what I was looking for. The more I walked down the street, I came upon Crone Cottage/C-Shore Creations. I walked in and Mrs. Ramona (C-shore Creations) couldn't have been more helpful. She was an absolute delightful lady. I told her my idea of what I was looking for and her assistance was remarkable. She also showed me the store in the back (Crone Cottage), which has cute and unique gifts, but not what I was looking for. Me and Mrs. Ramona sat down and talked; she gave me ideas on how to create my gift on my own and what materials and products I needed to buy to achieve it. She also showed me how to write with the paint. Her caring, knowledge, and all around great personality was really appreciated. She is the definition of Customer Service. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything in her store that I needed that day, but the knowledge she gave me for my gift idea was a wealth! The store has many stamps and they specialize in scrapbooking and cards. They even have classes. When I finish my gift creation, I look forward to going back and learning some art with Mrs. Ramona. Thanks C-Shore Creations "
What's so cool is I remember Mia perfectly. Adorable. She came in and we had a great time! We talked about what they were going to do for the bachelorette party and the wedding and she was a doll. So a word to the wise, always be yourself, 'cause you never know...
