Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue
A customer bought a few cards the other day. "I'll put these in this other bag," she said, pointing to a bag from a certain neighborhood store that shall go un-named. "I just got all my valentines!" she added. It was January 6th. I had noticed the Valentine display in their window - it appeared on January 1st. I think they even beat our local CVS, no slouch in the rushing the holidays department. I'm not planning to display mine until - I don't know - maybe a month before the actual holiday? Catch 22 - I hate to have valentines sitting around for six or seven weeks . . . and I also don't like losing sales to the ever earlier birds. Ours will appear soon!
