A new adventure.

Planners have been a part of my life for several years now. They’ve helped ease my anxiety and keep me a little bit more organized all the while giving me an artistic outlet to create daily and weekly. It’s pretty cool to share this hobby with so many people all over the world!


A Melancholy Moose has always been the name I wanted to use for my artistic endeavors. Whether that’s blogging or something else.  Like all things in life,  A Melancholy Moose and myself have evolved and changed. I’m a big believer in following your joy and nurturing the small things that make you happy.  I previously made jewelry under this name but as that is no longer something that brings me joy, it was time to closed that chapter and start a new one. I plan on blogging here more (again) and have also started an Etsy store to share my passion for planning and stationery.  I hope you’ll continue to join me as I start a few fun new projects.


So, with that said, A Melancholy Moose is now on Etsy! I have been drawing up a storm, creating characters that are inspired by my world and favorite things. I’ve turned these drawings into themed sticker sets for planners. Of course cats play a big part in my illustrations and most of them are inspired by my little muse Lucky.


Don’t mind the messy coffee table, just look at those adorable crossed paws!

I just opened shop a little while ago and only have a handful of listings, but I’m having so much fun creating new things. I’m trying to release a new set each week and will start posting about them here as well as on Instagram.

One of the hardest things about having a shop or business for me is the promotional aspect. I really don’t like advertising myself! I always feel pushy and am terrified that I’ll come off fake. So, I’m tying really hard to get more comfortable sharing. If you’d like to take a look at my store, you can check it out here.

It’s been lovely chatting here again, and I’ll be back soon!



Hello again,

My apologies for not keeping in touch better. 

It really has been a long time hasn’t it? 

I have so so many things to show and tell you. 

My mind is overflowing with things I need to share. 

How was your Christmas? Or better yet, did you enjoy Fall? 

Lets catch up!

This summer I had the most deliciously bright petunias. 

For those who are yearning for spring, I hope these brighten up your day! 

 Even though I don’t like the heat, especially how hot the summers are here in New Mexico, seeing these everyday made it more bearable. 

Their colors were so bright!

 Next spring I think I’ll add another table of them in my front yard. 

However for now, I am loving Winter.

 We don’t get much snow where I live. Hardly any at all.

 So last week when my sister and I were able to enjoyed a ride through the mountains on a very snowy day it was quite a treat!

The cold months are my absolute favorite!

rocky canyon roads…

 sun peeking through the snowy sky…

These tiny little birds played and played in the snow.

Diving in and out of it, like they were the happiest creatures on Earth! 

That night I enjoyed some delicious chicken noodle soup the Boyo made for me!

…and warmed up next to this ever so sleepy little one. 

Have you ever seen such a silly face?!

 …all bundled up and cozy.

Promise to visit more. Very soon! 

Happy Winter greetings from a sweet sleeping Lucky and I!
