Happy new year og goals for 2017

Happy new year everybody! I know I have been so slow at replying and sometimes skipping it entirely. At least lately. I guess the holidays has been a bit stressing for me.
I didn't have the best year in 2016, I'll admit. But in some ways, life has improved for me, so I'm not completely dissatisfied.

I don't have a proper new year photo for you, but have a photo of my Iplehouse SID Eva, now as Rose, and Luts Honey Delf Lolly, now as Audrey.

I had almost forgotten to post the goals for 2017. I think I forgot about it last year, but this time I won't make that mistake!

Because I tend to fail so much on my goals, I have made them easier for me to achieve. More realistic.

The goals:

1. Avoid spending too much money on dolls. If I have to spend money on the hobby, I hope it can be on clothes and such. 
I have already started 2017 with a layaway for a LTF El in WS, but hopefully I won't be spending my money on BJDs rather than clothes, since I need clothes so much. I don't have a number on how many dolls or parts I can buy this year, but as few as possible would be nice.

2. Try my hands at sewing again. 
I know I have tried this several times, but I want to give it a go again. I hate that it's so hard shopping for my Iplehouse ladies, so if I could make just some basic stuff myself, that would be nice.

3. Go to Jointed Hearts
I already doubt I can do this one. I probably can't afford it, but I still decided to list it, since it was posted by me in a DoA thread a couple of weeks back. 

4. Learn more about photography.
This one is the one I'm most excited about! I really hope to be able to learn a lot more in 2017. I feel like I'm surround online by some many talented photographers, and my bestie is my senpai in this area, so I hope I can learn from everyone and improve!


  1. Happy New Year, my dear :D
    I hope 2017 will be a happy year for you both in your personal life and in your doll family.

    Both Rose and Audrey looks cute and pretty :D

    Those are some nice goals. I hope you can achieve them this year.

    1. You too! :D I wish the best for you!

      Thank you so much :3

  2. Love the goals! I hope that you succeed and those goals that feel hard, start with something easy. To sew is fun, but can be frustrating sometimes. A good patterns is a good start. And to allow oneself to make mistakes and learn from it.

    Rose and Audrey look so beautiful!
    I hope that this year had a great start! Wish you the best for 2017.

    1. Thank you! Maybe I can find some easy YoSD patterns :3

      Thanks a lot, dear! I wish you the best as well! :D

  3. Great goals!!! and great photos too~
    Hope you accomplish a lot of goals this year, and you never know, maybe you will be able to go to jointed hearts, how neat that would be?

    1. Thank you, thank you, sweetie! :D
      Yeah, it would be pretty amazing n__n Here's to hoping!

  4. Hi Nikki!
    Happy New Year! Looks like you have those goals set to be achievable, no good setting them too high. To be honest it's something I haven't done this year, I'm just gonna roll with the punches. :)
    Love the photos of Rose and Audrey (I have a HD Lolly in tan too, mine has the most kicky legs, but I love her).

    1. Hi dear!
      Happy new year to you too :)
      No, I decided to do it the easy way this year, so I won't fail again and again. Haha
      Thanks a lot! You do? I hope I can see some photos of her soon then ;)

  5. Great goals!! If you need some advice regarding sewing, you know you can contact me! I wish you the best of luck and I'm crossing my fingers you will be able to go to Jointed Hearts!

    1. Thank a lot dear! I will definitely keep you in mind :D
