Me Made May?

Hello sewing world, can anyone point me to the 'Me Made May' source page and explain what the rules are?
Since my job is a suity office type one, and I mostly sew knits I definitely can't wear entirely Ruthie made stuff. However I was wondering if you can qualify even if you only wear one 'me made' thing like a cami or even earrings?

I am planning to use the jacket in New Look 6082
to sew up some simple suiting jackets, and instantly have suits by using the leftover fabric from when I made trousers. I can definitely do this with some navy pinstripe, some dark brown self stripe and a charcoal with teal stripes. I wear the trousers quite a bit with non matching wool jackets, except for the dark brown which doesn't seem to work with any existing jackets.
That'd give me three Ruthie made suits. I can also do the knit dress and jacket approach and wear some of my handmade bead jewellery.

Hi, Ruthie. I think the info is in this post: http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/me-made-may13-sign-up-here.html

I doubt I could pull it off myself but admire all those who can!

Thanks LisaB. I think I could manage one item of clothing/jewellery I've made myself each day, though it requires a bit of thinking about for work. It might be a nice excuse to sit down and make some new earrings/necklace sets that are work appropriate but still slightly different because I made them myself.

Glad LisaB gave you the link Ruthie and your commitment can be as little or as much as you are comfortable with, I know my first challenge commitment was 1 garment/knit/jewellery a day so I am sure you can do it.
