Giveaway Saturday!

Happy Giveaway Saturday, everybody! (Yes, that’s a thing!)

I’ve partnered with May Designs to give one lucky reader a May gift certificate!

I’ve had several fantastic experiences with May, and just ordered a few of their gorgeous notebooks myself.


I love the paper quality and feel, the size of their notebooks (they fit perfectly in a purse or pocket) and the textured paperback covers. I especially love that you can totally customize the notebooks to suit your needs.

I seriously used to only buy grocery store notebooks, because I felt guilty using nice ones.

Now that I’ve found May, I’m never going back 🙂

So, wanna know how to enter the giveaway?

1. Follow both me and May Designs on Facebook or Twitter







2. In the comments below, send me the following two things:

+ A link to a May Designs notebook cover you love

+ Tell me how you plan to use the notebook.

  • Are you going to fill it with plans for that book you’ve always wanted to write?
  • Will you use it as a diary?
  • Will you fill it with poems?

The giveaway closes at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, August 4th.

Good luck!
