We’re nearly at the end of the year, so it’s time to see how well I did with the resolutions I made for last year…
1. Make something for every doll I have
I had this last year, but I’m going to try again, and document it this time so I can keep track of how it’s going!
— FAIL, totally failed at this one, and I don’t think I’ll be trying again next year – maybe a smaller challenge!
2. Lots of dolly meets, including seeing Jenni and Lucy at least once each in the year
Always need dolly meets 😀
— Success! Had lots of lovely meets this year including Blythecon and lots of lovely days with friends.
3. Take more full length doll photos
I got the props and angles last year, now I need to work on full length pictures, specially with my larger guys!
— Success. I think I did this more, it’s still not my favourite type of picture but I think I pushed myself to do more.
4. Take more photos, and stories, in my doll rooms
I have a room for each size now, so I’ve no excuse for not using them.
— Success! Really happy with Mina’s room and I’ve used it in quite a few stories and pictures this year.
5. One in one out
Could be harder this year, but I’m going to try, I really don’t want the numbers to run away with me.
— Success! More or less, I need to do the final addings up and checking but I’m about one or two within, I think I’m finishing the year with less BJDs than I started it.
6. Complete doll a day photo challenge for the whole year
Time for another year long challenge, I’m not going to be too hard on myself with this one, so I’ll be happy with just doing a few monthly ones.
— So far so good… no days missed yet.
7. Nice eyes for everyone who needs them
I think I had this as a resolution a few years ago, but I’m back to some of them needing new eyes, specially the smaller ones.
— Possibly a never ending quest, but I’ve definitely got closer with most of my dolls now having the perfect eyes for them.
8. Catch up with my story
I’ve so much planned in my head and I know where almost everyone is in the stories, but I need to get them made and up.
— I’m calling this a success, I’ve come a long way this year and I’m pretty happy with how things have gone and where they’re going!
9. Move all my old photos from my old flickr account to my new one
A boring one, but something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time, I’d love to have them all together and get them deleted from my old account.
— Fail, didn’t do any at all – possibly not a good task while doing the doll a day uploads, I might try this again next year.
All in all I’m really happy with how I got on this year – looking forward to doing a round up of which dolls came and left next!
