I used to buy all my cards and stationery at Hallmark. No Target or grocery store last-minute birthday cards for me! I planned months ahead of time and had post-its on all my cards, containing a friend’s name and their birth date. I had cards ready to mail every few days.
Then Facebook came along. Don’t get me wrong—Facebook has good qualities and bad. But when they updated their algorithm (or whatever they called it at the time) and you were notified of friends’ birthdays days and weeks in advance, you were able to save money on Hallmark cards. Now, you could get online, wish anyone a happy-trip-around-the-sun, and your friend would think that you didn’t forget him or her.
Well, that’s fine for people you went to high school with or your second cousin. But for friends who you see often, and certainly for friends with whom you exchange birthday gifts, Facebook greetings are just not enough.
So you decide you want to go back to the Hallmark store and discover that there are only a few left in your expanded neighborhood. I wasn’t the only one not buying cards anymore and just using virtual greetings.
I have since discovered upscale paper stores like Papyrus and Paper Source. Expensive, yes. Unique, for sure! And now, there’s an even better place to buy your paper goods, party supplies, and, especially, greeting cards. Style Life is a shop-at-home line of products that represent things you didn’t know you needed, but now you have to have!

I don’t recall my Hallmark store ever carrying these irreverent fun items, do you? And who can’t use these journals? For yourself or as gifts?
