I'm obsessed with cute stationery. I have a lot of spare notebooks, notepads, and planners. Not only do I like to collect pretty and unique notebooks, but they also come in handy. You never know when you might need something to write on! They help me stay organized as well. I like using notepads to keep track of my spending, my income, grocery lists, to-do lists, and couponing.
May Designs is a great place to shop for beautiful one-of-a-kind notebooks and note cards. At May Designs you can customize everything about your notebook; the pattern, colors, font, you can add your name or monogram on it, and you can even choose what kind of pages you want inside.
They have such a wide range of patterns to choose from, you can create an almost infinite amount of different notebooks. Almost any pattern you could want, they have. They have chevron, hearts, animals, plaid, stripes, polka dots, anchors, gingham, flowers, damask, stars, and much more.
After you choose a pattern, you can pick out which background shape you would like your name or monogram to be on. Next, you pick the font, color, and text you want. Finally, you get to choose what inside pages you want. You can choose from a monthly or weekly agenda, address book, meal planner, budget journal, calorie and exercise journal, wedding diary, pregnancy diary, baby diary, kid's handwriting book, or you can choose plain pages with lines, grids, graphs, or blank pages.
The envelope that my May Book came in was just as pretty as everything else on their site. I was so excited when I saw this pretty package in my mailbox, because I instantly knew what was inside.
This is what my May Book looks like! It looks just as beautiful in person as I imagined it would. This notebook is just perfect for me. It's completely my style, and of course it is, because I designed it! The pattern I chose is called Rose Teal. They had the same rose pattern with other background colors, but I really like the way the pink roses looked against the teal background. If there was a blouse that came in this print, I would totally buy it.. As for my monogram I chose a pink Baroque design, with a Fancy Script font.
The inside pages are just basic lined paper. The back of the cover has a nice diagonal stripe design and has a place for you to write your name and contact info.
The book itself is a nice small 5x8 size, perfect for carrying around, and throwing in your purse. The cover is soft canvas and is individually stitched down the spine for an eco-friendly binding solution. It contains 80 pages in all.
