Before I get started...
Disclaimer: I received $20 from May Designs to make any book I wanted. I chose a planner with mod rose orchid mauve cover. Any opinions about the design, inside and out, and May Books are completely my own.
So I am in love with my planner. Completely in love with it. It is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world! I first met May Books in August. Ok I didn't meet anyone but their adorable notebooks were in a gift bag I received. Fast forward to December and me thinking about what to get you all for Valentine's Day. Luckily for my May Books is AWESOME and totally agreed that you needed one (or several) of their notebooks in your life.
I love words and planning. And one of the side effects of this is that I love notebooks. Pretty notebooks, personalized notebooks. Notebooks that SCREAM DragynAlly. Thanks to May Designs I was able to create a notebook that was all of that. How romantic would it be to have someone make you your own personal notebook?
May Books has several cover designs to choose from. From the wacky and whimsical to the more sedate and everything in between. The sweetheart collection is out now in time for Valentine's Day! (A notebook covered in hearts from your sweetie? Awesome.) The only thing missing were more masculine options. Although I was able to create a notebook for my boyfriend that was "manly" enough. (Yes, I love May Books so much I am buying them as gifts. AND I have "buy a new May Books planner" written in my planner.)
Once you pick a cover that speaks to you then the personalization really begins. You can now add a monogram or name. As you can see in my pics my name is all over it! Don't want your name? That's cool too. You can either leave off that part OR you can name your book whatever you want. Let's say you want to remember what year you made a planner for, you can call the book 2013. Or let's say you create a wedding diary name it something romantic.
One of the best things about May Books are the many options you have for the inside pages of your book. I needed a 2013 planner so that's what I made. Need a "bump diary" to help you keep track of stuff during pregnancy? They have that. How about meal planner? They have that too. There are 12 different page options and all of them are there to help you organize your life. (Blank pages could be used for free form thinkers or drawings.)
May Books are the perfect size for your own the go notebook needs. 5"x 8" to be exact. You can throw it in your purse (backpack, whatever) and go. My planner has become such a part of my every day life I almost forgot it was the item I had to review!
May Designs (May Books) also keeps in mind the environment when they make their books. They use thread for binding. The covers are Green-e certified canvas. The books are not only gorgeous but they are eco friendly and durable. Don't believe me? I bent and twisted my new book just to prove it to myself and it held up! I was impressed.
Now you can win one of these fab books for yourself or someone in your life who loves words or organization or notebooks. Rules are in the rafflecopter. I wish you luck!
