Me, MMM 14

Me-Made May 2014

It’s almost here — Me-Made May 2014!

Me-Made May 2014

Since Blogger hates me and my comments, I have not yet been able to officially make my 2014 pledge.  (Seriously, if you have a Blogger blog and wonder why I never comment, it’s probably because Blogger and I don’t get along.  Like, at all.  It almost never lets me comment on a blog and if I somehow manage to get past all its roadblocks, half the time it eats my comment rather than posting it.  Blogger is just a b*&$%).

But, I wanted to get my pledge out there before May hits, and hopefully I’ll be able to play nice with Zoe’s blog before long and make it official.  In the meantime, here it is:

“I, Katie of the Creative Counselor (, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear almost all handmade clothing with no more than one RTW item each day (with the exception of the week of May 5 when I am in trial — I don’t own a handmade suit and don’t have time to make any) for the duration of May 2014.”

Is anyone else signing up?  I’d love to hear your pledges!

  1. I hear you about Blogger. I moved to Intense Debate for my comment platform because Blogger blows chunks.

    As for MMM — I want to do it soooo badly but I’m worried about it being too cold! There are hardly any cold-weather items in my closet, and this spring is looking to be a chilly one.

    1. I’m glad that I can finally comment on your blog! Blogger sucks.

      If you want to do MMM, you should, at whatever level you feel is doable. If you look at people’s pledges, they’re all over the board from people who pledge to wear 100% handmade head to toe to those who wear 1 handmade garment 5 days during May. Whatever works for you — it’s the community that’s important. At least to me!

  2. Sorry you’re having trouble with Blogger! I haven’t had any problems with it, but maybe I haven’t been blogging long enough yet to have any problems.

    I am really looking forward to MMM! This will be my first year participating as I only found out about it last year after it took place. I pledged to wear handmade only (except for undergarments, etc.) for the month of May and to try not to repeat any outfits. We’ll see how that goes!

    1. Wow, that is an ambitious pledge — good luck! I wasn’t brave enough to try a pledge like that yet — mostly because I don’t have any me-made pants. Maybe next year though 🙂

    1. You don’t have to pledge for every day in May you know 😉 Check out Zoe’s post — pledges are all over the board. You should do it — however much you think is realistic for you.

      1. Ha! I’ll have to check out her post. I’ve sewed a lot of skirts and am getting up there with tops…and if course scarfs. Definitely next year. Maybe I’ll take a pledge to sew more so I can participate next year by wearing a handmade item each day!!!
