Goals for 2012

I don't know about you, but I don't make New Year's Resolutions...they always seem to end up broken by the end of January. Seems like an exercise in futility to 'promise' myself that I'm going to do something if I pretty much know in my head it's not gonna happen.

That being said, I have decided I need to challenge myself this year.  I want my Etsy shop to do better this year than ever before! I've done ok in the past, but that was with minimal, heck NO, effort on my part.  Ok, just isn't good enough any more.  Now, I'm not looking to make a living off of my doll work, but I'd like to be able to contribute to the household in some way. Maybe pay a bill here and there or use my "OWN" money to buy the doll things I want.  (Not that my husband has any issues me buying things, but still...)

So this year I am challenging myself to weekly goals! I'm hoping if I share them here, maybe you all will hold me accountable!

Ok so here goes:
Weekly I NEED to:
1. Sew AND list one complete outfit in my shop, be it Barbie, LIV or Monster High.
2. Create AND list atleast 10 items, these can be foodstuffs, accessories or art work.
3. Photograph atleast 1 'scene' with the dolls. Just something fun to show off my collection

I don't think these are goals that are too lofty or unachievable.  I'm ready to get started and make 2012 craftily awesome! =D



  1. Those are great goals for yourself and good luck on achieving them and stocking your etsy shop!

  2. There seems to be a LOT of money in the 1/6th collecting world. If you get enough stuff up on etsy, I bet you could make a tidy little sum...with some tidy little things:D

  3. Great goals!
    I have a couple of "mini" things that aren't so mini. They might work for your 1/6th dolls though?
    If you email me your new address I will send them to you.

  4. Thanks for the encouragement ladies!
    Ohh thanks Kathi, I will! =D

  5. Wonderful goals and I think you can easily achieve them, I'll back you up. I know you can do it. :)


Hi! Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing what you have to say! =D
