Christmas is just around the corner so I thought this would be a great time to
finally post how did my plans for this year go.
So let’s go checking them one by one:
1. Upload more photos of my dolls: the original plan was to post at least one photo each month, but I failed around april lol. Sad, I know, but I did post a lot more this year than any other year so that’s progress right? In fact, half my flickr gallery photos are from this year. So there you go.
I can still improve this one by a lot. I did delete a few photos from this year that I really hated so there was even more.
Verdict: half fail.
2. Get the story of my dolls straight: check! I spent a lot of time this year just thinking about my dolls story, though I never posted anything because I didn’t write that much to be honest.
I also finished writing all my dolls’ profiles with the exception of Ailene, because I’m still trying to figure out a good reason for her for spending so much time with Lucas haha. Once I upload the new blog layout I will be adding the profiles to this blog.
3. Think really hard before purchasing any more dolls: twice I planned to buy a doll and both times I couldn’t do it in the end. They are both still in my wishlist and I didn’t make any impulsive buys though I was tempted so many times. It helped that I spent half the year broke.
Verdict: though thinking really hard before buying and not buying is not the same, I think this one was a success.
4. Learn to sew: yeah… nope. I mean, this was really a long shot and I knew it, so I was happy even if I could make some accesories and props this year. And did I? well I started learning crochet and did a scarf that was too little for Lucas (but surprisingly enough it was perfect for Hana). And I also did a christmas hat for my tinies! Handsewn as best as I could with my lack of skills. I think it turned out pretty cute, it’s such a shame I didn’t take better photos of it.
Verdict: half fail. I did things, but it’s just not enough to consider it a success.
Even knowing Leo was coming at the beginning of the year, I didn’t set up a goal for his face up. I thought I was going to do it as soon as He got here. Oh dear, how wrong I was. He arrived in february so the weather wasn’t even a excuse!!! I did his face up and finished it yesterday and I loved it, until this morning I realized the last layer of varnish was kinda flakey? no, not that, more like cloudy. So yeah, I really liked how it turned out, but I’ll have to re do it. I still took a few photos of it.
And last. but not least, I wish you all a christmas and new year full of love and loved ones to share it with. Presents are cool and all, but the important things are the feelings we have towards each other and the memories we make with our loved ones.
I hope 2016 bring you many good news and people to smile with.
