I love notebooks and note cards and stationery. When my daughter went to Japan I had her bring me back a set of stationery (because that is one of the things they are known for) but there is nothing like finding lovely paper made locally.
Worthwhile Paper is based in Ypsilanti and makes their products so beautifully and thoughtfully. They make notebooks, greeting cards, planners, notepads, art prints, and more. I picked up these two items at the Detroit Urban Craft Fair and the notebook went into a gift basket for a friend's birthday (she carries it constantly!) and I LOVE the little cards to use as thank-you's, congratulations, or as a reminder that I'm thinking of someone. I'm going to have to order more; I have a lot of amazing people in my life. And I'm so glad I found this company to help me let each and every one of them know in such a charming way.
