Allo Movellous Movember {Free Digital Calendar & Printable}

WOW! It's that time of year already, I'm spotting guys all around the city with tufts of hair growing under their noses which will soon be proud fully grown mustaches. It's the beginning of November, which really means it's the beginning of MOVEMBER. A month in which Mo Bros around the world raise awareness of prostate cancer by encouraging men to get annual check-ups and to be aware of a family history of cancer and their lifestyle. Find out a little more & register to participate on

I think it is important to encourage & MO-tivate all guys to stay healthy so I've designed a Digital Movember Desktop calendar as a gently reminder. The Pretty Blog & Elephantshoe blog readers can download it for FREE right here. Movember Calendar

Just because us ladies can't grow a Mo doesn't mean we can't join in the awareness celebrations. We have also designed a cute Washi Tape Mustache Free Printable for you to use in a variety of ways, download the PDF, print and go Washi Tape crazy by applying fun colored & printed tape to the blank mustaches, then trim your range of unique mustaches on the outer lines. 


Use these as party props, decorate your jars in your home and office space, attach them to paper straws, make fridge magnets the ideas are endless. Use your own Washi Tape or purchase some fun colours from our Shoppe.


Our friend Andre from Blackframe Photography always pops by to our studio to help me with the photography of our DIY & Free Printable Projects and I just want to send a big THANK YOU to him for always taking such beautiful photographs for us to share here and on the pretty blog. Thanks Andre, you're a legend! 

Happy Movember

"I think you're Movelous" {Movember}

Yipppeee, today is our DIY on theprettyblog.

It’s Movember & we are celebrating, “Keeping Men Healthy”! If you’re not too sure what all the hype around Movember is then check out this super cool, informative post by Nicola from theprettyblog to find out a little more on what Movember is all about.

We can’t grow a moustache but we can support and encourage our men! If you have a brother, father, uncle, son, boyfriend, guy friend, male work colleague and you care about their health then this DIY is for you.

The first step is for you to become a Mo Sista. What is a Mo Sista you ask?

“Mo Sistas play a vital role in Movember and men’s health. With the simple wink of an eye, small gesture of appreciation or encouraging words – Mo Sistas can influence men to participate and grow a Mo. More importantly, the awareness Mo Sistas can help raise is a game changer. Relative to men, women are extremely health conscious and open to talking about their issues. Mo Sistas can act as mentors and leaders by encouraging men to take part in Movember, to be aware of their own health, live a healthy lifestyle and get checked regularly. Also, engaged and dedicated Mo Sistas that reach out to other women will make those unaware of the issues surrounding men’s health, aware. ” – description taken from the official Movember site

Here at Elephantshoe we have created a few fun printables to help you MO-tivate your men and be a better Mo Sista.


Download our “I think you’re Movelous” wall calendar. Print it out & hang it up somewhere handy at work & in your home so that everyone can keep track of the days left to grow their fine moustache. Calendar available in pink, red or black.


Mo Bros need to eat well to keep their moustaches growing healthily. Download these cute printables, print on a thick paper stock & cut out along the outlines. Stick these “Movalicious” buttons and colorful moustaches to the top of a painted pegs with glue or double sided tape. You can then use these pegs for a range of fun things. Attach them to the top of a Mo Bros lunch bag, place them on your fridge (check out how to make a magnet here), hang your washing, do what ever you can to help the men in your life take note of Movember & then intern their health.


Leave a short note around the house or at the office with these Movember notecards. Pinning up words of encouragement & leaving reminders for your Mo Bros will help them stay on track with Movember and will bring awareness. Show your Mo Bros that you . . . “Love the Mo.”


A big THANK YOU to the ever-amazing team at Blackframe photography for working with us to photograph the images in this post. Andre is of course growing a mean Mo. Visit their blog and their facebook page here to see some of their creative, quirky & incredible photography work.

Happy Movember!
