First of all, if you don’t know by now let me inform you: I am a handmade stuff fanatic!!!! Maybe it’s the frugality, maybe it’s the fact that I was taught that making something by hand, even if it’s not perfect is worth more than anything one could ever buy someone! Whatever it is, now you have it: my personal bias!
That being out there, I oddly feel no different! LOL. So much for feeling better after a confession! I was recently able to get my very own May Book! Not aware of them??? WHERE have you been!!! May books are notebooks, planners, journals etc that are sewn together using a sewing machine. They also make May Notes, which you can also choose from their awesome selection. This is awesome because it ensures that the notebook/planner, whatever stays together! You don’t have to worry about them falling apart, so you have a solid investment! In my opinion, they are perfect for church notes (which I go through a book every few months of!) and what better feature than durability! The covers are made of a canvas that will stretch, are water resistant, and become more and more durable with use! Another awesome thing? They are made in Tennessee by a group of women doing them by hand!
You can design your own so that it’s all you and you will love them! I know I do! You can also have them monogrammed to get the most personalized book possible! I opted out of the monogram, as I’m not quite in love with my initials being everywhere, but most people are! LOL.
