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!

Pusheen Planner Stickers

Who doesn’t love Pusheen?!

Because you must fill your planner with cuteness during February, regardless of how you feel about Valentines day, I’ve designed some free Pusheen layout stickers. They are chock-full of pastel shades and whimsical images of the ever adorable Pusheen! I’ve added two printing options, they’ll now fit in the Erin Condren life planner (vertical) as well as the Happy Planner! Choose your preference below.

If you do not own a digital cutter, you can still print on sticker paper and cut out by hand or print on paper and run through a Xyron sticker machine.  There’s also the good old fashioned option to simply print, cut by hand and glue into your planner too!

Feel free to tag me on Instagram (@amelancholymoose) or link back to me here if you use these in your layout. I’d love to see how you use them!

Friday Favorites #1

I’ve decided to start a Friday Favorites series on the blog!

For my first installment, here are a few planner/stationery related goodies I’ve seen around the web this week:

Filofax UK has released new colors in their Originals series and this Dark Aqua planner is simply marvelous!

As an avid Game of Thrones fan, this planner charm made by CraftersRetreat on Etsy makes me so happy! Check out her Etsy store, she has some really awesome stuff. I just purchased a ridiculously amazing custom Game of Thrones charm from her and can’t wait to receive it! This one would look great attached to the Dark Aqua Filofax too. ^.^

I’ve recently discovered these Hi-Tec-C Coleto multi pens by Pilot. There are lots of cute color options and it’s also refillable so you get to choose each individual color cartridge to add to it! I have a bright pink one that I received as a gift and I absolutely love it!
