Back To School With Customized Academic Agenda Notebooks! #Giveaway

Have your kids started back to school yet? Here where we live it starts back next week, so it's been a busy time getting all our curriculum together, all the necessary notebooks, etc., and those thousand other little details that need to taken care of-yes, even homeschoolers have a back to school rush! 



I was excited when May Designs offered one of their completely customizable notebooks for review and giveaway; these are some of the cutest notebooks you'll ever see, and they can be made with an academic agenda (the school year from August to July)! It was so much fun to go online and and design a notebook step by step. The first step is picking the cover of your notebook. There are literally hundreds of designs, from solids to stripes, plaids, floral, and so much more. I chose the Tartan Navy and Orchid, and then it was on to the next steps.



Once you've chosen a cover, you can then pick a background shape (for the monogram/text area), the font or style of text, and then the color of the text. May Designs highlights a few colors that go well with the cover you've chosen, but it's completely up to you and your taste! After getting the text finished to your liking, with your name, monogram, etc., you decide what to put in the notebook. Obviously for our back to school we chose the academic agenda, but there are many other options available as well: agenda, address book, budget, meal planner, health and fitness journal, baby diary, and blank pages, just to name a few.

After placing the order, it took right about 6 days (including the weekend) for the book to ship. Once the order arrived, I was thrilled to see how beautifully it had turned out! The cover is absolutely beautiful, and any girl would love to have a school schedule/calendar this nice. The pages are nice and thick, so they won't tear easily. It's 5x8, so it's a handy size to keep in a backpack or even a purse. This will be so great for M to use this school year to keep track of assignments, field trips, report dates, etc!

Overview of the Month


Now, before we get to the giveaway, let me share a little bit of information about May Designs - a company that is "going green"!
"All MAY BOOKS are bound together by the all-famous, old school sewing machine. Not only is the thread fabulous for the environment, but the book becomes utterly indestructible. No pages ripping out, covers falling off... Believe us, we have tested notebooks. Great binding keeps you out of bad stitch(uations).
Our Green-e Certified Canvas Covers are resilient, durable 
and water-resistant. 
After a few days of use, the canvas becomes worn-in like the perfect pair of jeans."


One of our readers will receive a code to create their own May Book!!

There is no way I can choose one favorite because I like so many of them. But I narrowed it down to one on my list I want is the B & W Gingham.
