“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart” - Phyllis Theroux

The Giving Ink is a shop by Michelle Castle, the owner of Honey Paper. It embodies our desire to connect the hearts of people through handwriting, illustrations, and a renewed interest in a slower form of communication. Our shelves and on-line shop are filled with items to inspire your correspondence. We offer a curated selection of high quality products from around the world, including Michelle’s original watercolors, maps and illustrations.  

The benefits of incorporating the handwritten note into your professional and personal relationships are many and our selection includes items you can share with others to express your gratitude and love. 


Letters are a way to send a small gift from a place of meaning.


Thank you for visiting.

Write Happy,


Open from 11-4 Sunday-Thursday and 11-5 Friday and Saturday.
