2018: Doll Goals

New year is here!!! I'm hoping you had a wonderful start!! Last week, on January 3rd, it was Venezia's first year: I'm still stunned that I have had her for so long. However, the next chapter for her story should be up on February, as I have a lot of (tiny-centered) stuff planned for January!

Anyways, let's start with the goals! I will check them back at the end of this year, as I always do, and see how much I have achieved and failed as well. Have a Merry in the meantime... will she miss or hit? The goals are after the cut xD

Goals for 2018

  1. I want to do my Secret Project! Expect an update about this next week! But it is a huge project, and I have so many ideas about it!
  2. Related to that, I've been hoarding and slowly getting painting supplies for them, as I'm finally going ahead with one of my ultimate dolly goals: leaning to do faceups. Granted, these will not exactly be faceups, more like blushing, but it is a start.
  3. I can't deny it: I enjoy period dresses too much. I want to make another project: either Beauty & Beast, or Ada Lovelace & Katherine Johnson cosplays. If I can't, at least sew another period outfit.
  4. I want to open my sewing commissions once and for all! I need them to be able to have more dolly-savings and get some stuff.
  5. Stuff I want to get (if customs and my wallet behave according to my plans):
    • Sewing notions and tiny shoes from Mimiwoo/Coolcat.
    • Shoes for Venezia (I have some stores in view).
    • Furniture and props for Coco & Venezia.
  6. Dare to take more "random" photos of my dolls: not everything needs to be really planned. I do enjoy doing this more with the tinies, as I find that anything (even a teacup) is a prop to them. I also want to use this as a excuse to practice more with the 50mm lens.
  7. Keep up on reading friend's blogs! I've been slacking on this due to too much work, but I want to check them at least once per week.
  8. Keep on the knitting-learning process, if the wool does not agree with me. I need to knit at least one thing! Whinning and wrestling with the wool is allowed, though.
  9. Make Cookie and Merry character pages, as well as the incoming Secret Project pages. I want to have my "Dolls' Info" page complete, once and for all!

By the way, poor Kitty Cookie!! At least those were practice arrows with adhesive points, hahaha! By the way, yes: I made the target and the arrows by myself! Those were actually easier than I thought they would, though the arrows came out really fragile.

And this is all for today! Fingers crossed that I'll be able to achieve my goals for this year! Do you have any goals? If you do, please share them, I'd love to see them! Anyways, hope you had a great start of the year, and Happy Three Kings/Wise Man, or whatever it translates, if you are celebrating!


  1. Your photos are fun, but poor kitty! I bet she'll think twice about posing in front of that target again. I love Cookie's pink booties.

    I envy you coming up with a list of goals for the year. I rarely think ahead of the next blog post.

    1. I know, right?? But I just had this idea, and had to do it!! Next year Cookie will have her revenge :D

      Oh, I just like to have everything nicely planned, I am terrible at that xD

  2. Haha, the "story" of these photos are so funny XD I can easily picture Merry missing and hitting Cookie. Poor Cookie! Haha.

    I think you have some reasonable goals. I'm curious about the secret project!
    I need to become better at reading and commenting on blogs as well. We can do it!

    1. Hahahah, happy you like this!! Cookie will have her revenge, I'm sure!!

      *highs fives* Here is to us getting better on commenting on blogs!! We can do it!!

  3. Las fotos son super divertidas, espero ver la revancha de Cookie, aunque ella es más tranquila que Merry (yo la adoro por lo inocente y dulce que es)
    Muy buenos tus objetivos, espero, sinceramente que logres cumplir tu objetivo secreto, aunque aún sea un secreto XD
    Muchos deseos de éxito en este nuevo año para ti y que logres todo lo que te has propuesto.
    PD: tus fotos son cada vez mejores. Felicitaciones.

    1. ¡Gracias! Sí, aún tengo que pensar una revancha de Cookie, ya veré que sucede. Tengo un año para inspirarme, jajajaja!
      Gracias por los buenos deseos, espero lograr lo más que pueda! :D

  4. So many objectives for 2018! I wish you luck and my advice is "go for it if it makes you happy" ;)
    I am a new reader of your blog (I have been reading you for a month or so), but never left a comment before. I wanted to let you know that you have a really nice blog :)

    1. Hey there, thank you!! I'm happy you read my blog and left a new comment :D
      You are too kind, thank you so much!!

  5. Geniales las fotos! super creativa! Muy buenas metas tb, espero las consigas todas!

    1. ¡¡Gracias!! :D Y feliz año nuevo!! :D

  6. Great and interesting goals! I do like the one with the photography - just taking random photos can be an experience and a learning lesson. And does not put too much pressure, either, on the need to be perfect. Me, on the other hand, should take some planned photos!
    Then I am curious about the big project, look forward to reading more about that. Keeping my thumbs up and wishing you the best of luck!
    And poor kitty....!

    1. Thank you so much!! It is true, it is a good lesson, without any pressure.
      I'll post more about the big project next week :D
