Goals for 2015!

First post of the year! And yes, I'm keeping my eyes open if I happen to see Marty McFly on 2015 :D yes, I do love Back To The Future. Anyways, a new year comes and so does the new goals for this year! On 2014 I magically managed to accomplish almost all of my goals, but some of them remained unfulfilled; however, I hope that this year I will be able to accomplish at least half of my goals!


My goals are...

  1. Since I got my first DSLR camera, I want to practice my photography skills a lot. I want to learn concepts, learn to use my camera, practice with it, and improve. If it is possible, I would love to buy somethings for my camera: a tripod, a purse or the 50mm lens.
  2. I want to keep sewing and improving, to try things I have not done yet and keep pushing myself, but knowing that being a little perfectionist is OK, but too perfectionist is not healthy. I will make mistakes on my sewing, but I will learn from them.
  3. Do more winter fashion! Winter is while Summer for most part of the hobby, so I have my reservations on doing winter fashion... plus, it does not snow on my city, so there is no way of getting 'proper winter photos'. But I have some boots deserving matching outfits, and I want to use them!
  4. Do a couch for Coco, and maybe a diorama for Cookie! I have some of the materials ready for the couch, and I have been wanting to do it since a lot time ago. I think that my girls really need some props. The diorama is the thing I see as most unrealistic, as it is pretty expensive.
  5. Regarding the crochet Etsy store, we were really happy as we surpassed our goals. This year, I hope that we can have at least 15 commissions/custom requests on the year, and sell at least 5 in-stock items.
  6. I once had a sewing commissions service on DoA, but with the revamp of the marketplace, I got it deleted. I want to open my hand-sewing store once again, and sell at least one or two commissions on the year!
  7. There are two outfits I want to sew for Calina. I want to be able to make them and take pictures of them!
  8. I have an idea for two pics of Coco: one with me, and one with hubby. I hope to be able to take at least one of them.
  9. After the re-make I made of Cookie's character (and changing wig/eyes, adding kitten parts) I was able to bond with her more. I want to give her more attention, play more with her, and take more photos of her. If I can, make her 10 facts, and learn more of Cookie's character.

That is all for this year! Those are a lot of goals, but I hope to be able to do a lot of them. I won't wish for a new doll, because I don't want to have false expectations, but who knows? Can't wait to see how I do it on this year :3

  3. My advice for your new camera purchase... buy the tripod first, and asap!

    It's probably the most overlooked, undervalued piece of equipment by people who are starting out... but if you want those amazing, crisp images that you see being made by some of the best online doll photographers (or any photographers) the tripod is a must!!!

    Don't cheap out on one either, do some research, and invest in a good one.
    You'll be amazed XD

    1. Thanks!! Yes, I also believe that the tripod should come first, but I don't believe that 'first' is going to be soon... at least, not until my birthday. But oh well, still have so much time to practice! Thank you for the advice :3

  5. They all sound like very doable goals! ;) Your post also inspired me to write my goals out of the new year as well, and we both share the goal of getting better at photography. Here's good luck for both of us! (^u^)9

    I really like your goals, they seem pretty achieveable, and it'd be neat to see your sewing and picture-taking improve even more as you practice :D
