My 2020 Hobby Goals

Hello everybody! Here we are, in a new decade, as weird as it sounds! It does sound amazing, though. Anyways, I do hope this year is less hectic *touches wood* and that I'm able to do everything I set on these goals. So... here we go!




2020 Goals


1. First of all, I mentioned on my 2019 goals that I wanted to give back to people that helped me to move my cat with us. I wish I could send something to everybody that donated or supported me, but I can't. I'm planning to give some gifts to the people that were key and that went even beyond to help me. I have started budgeting and taking everything into account, so I hope I can do tons of content about that (it is all going to be BJD-related, and custom/handmade) and start shipping around this year.


2. I haven't sewn much on 2019, except for Calina's dress at the beginning of the year, and then the 50's dress that I made for Venezia in November for her bday. I want to go back to sewing, and make another Disney-themed 50's dress. I don't have that much space anymore for keeping everything, so it is probably going to be a sew-photoshoot-sell thing.
I can do that here because customs and the postal service work adequately! Finally!


3. Get back to read friend's blogs and commenting. I had some very stressful times in 2019 and one of the things that ended up chopped was that. It is rude to people that read me, and I want to share their hobby adventures as well!


4. Keep up with the doll photography videos! I have an idea already, but those videos take a lot of time to make. I want to show basic stuff and do some challenges to invite you all to chime in. I hope I can do it!


5. Related to the above: improve my photography! I told you that @the.kittyears gifted me a manual vintage Minolta lens, and I feel like in a lab, measuring and counting everything. But I am learning a lot with it, and I really want to improve!


6. I'd like to upload more patterns into my Etsy Momo's Patterns. I uploaded some for the tinies and some for the Aileendoll Plapicos, but I am open to suggestions!


7. Melbourne hosts the BJD Emporium every year. If there is one in 2020, I'd like to attend and maybe have a table. Because you know... the hobby funds the hobby :D





And this is all for today! I really do hope I can achieve all of this! Do you have any goals for this year? If so, let me know because I'd love to read them as well! Let's cross our fingers that we all achieve what we propose ourselves this year! Let's do it :D

  1. Hi M,
    It's good you have been able to get straight into your hobby goal setting already and I wish you much luck in achieving them all. As for me, I haven't even thought about dolls let alone set any goals as yet, but maybe when all the fires have ceased burning, I can think of more positive things.
    Big hugs,
    X

  2. Best of luck carrying out your hobby goals. My hobby goal is to blog less during 2020. After ten years I can no longer keep up with my self-imposed weekly deadlines. Maybe if I write less often I can keep it going without losing my enthusiasm.

  4. I hope you'll reach your goals :) By the way, I might have missed it, but did you find a cat shelter for volunteering? I thought I remember you planned to do that. Your pictures are already awesome, and I look forward to see more of your sewing results.

  5. Wonderful goals! Hope that you can reach them all. Hope that you can do something with goal number four, because that really sounds interesting. I have been enjoying the videos you have made so far. :)

  6. OMG! You have such a nice blog! I found you on Sharon's blog comment section, and your user name catched my eye.

    I wish you the best of luck with your goals, it's so nice you want to give back to people that helped you! I don't collect BJD, but I'm very interested in learning new photography tips and tricks, so I'll stay tuned.

    Have a great rest of the weekend.
