This is a kind of tradition in this hobby – or maybe any hobby – to look what you have done, or not done and what you want to do the next year. Like always I will split this up and start with what happened 2017…

I am still preparing the posts and I am not finished with Bries project.

Other stuff
  1. I got some great Harry Potter things from my Lootcrate Boxes
  2. I tried to take more photographs from landscapes, people and street art/art
  3. I started to collect pins again – still love it 😉
  4. I was able to see my local girls ❤

Best thing that happened in 2017:

to get the whole dolly story together and improve all my characters. Also all the face ups and clothes I made this year 🙂

Bad thing that happened in 2017:

Stress – mostly work or work related… and the lack of energy.

Highlight of 2017: 

For one to order a Doll with four arms!! FOUR ARMS!! *dead*
Also I got my first artist face up for Aeshma by Swandzz-Pintsizedpalace


So this was 2017… I think I am kind of satisfied how it went, but there are still thing I want to improve. I realized that this hobby also helps me to improve my energy level and my motivation. I am kind of lazy sometimes, who isn’t, but also I lack mostly on energy and motivation. There were again some really bad days this year, especially at work, but I managed to pull through…


What did you do? Did you do everything you plan? Did your plans change? What was your highlight?

Part two will be up in a few days, there I will talk about my 2018 plans. Also on the 7th of January should be my first ADAW 2018 picture up xD we will see…

See you and thank you for your time – Cheeeeers ❤

  2. Well all in all Rachel, it sounds like you had a pretty successful year! You certainly achieved a lot of what you set out to do, which is more than I can say for myself. UGH!

    1. Thank you so much Xanadu ❤
      I think dollywise 2017 was a good year. But don't stress yourself, I can say from my experiences: do what you can and enjoy it, everything else can wait


  3. Looks like an active year! Wonderful! 🙂 It feels, during the year, that I have not done so much of the things I planned. But when put into lists, then you can see that it was a pretty good year. And as you mention, it is always better to enjoy ones hobby and not compare the amount of things done or push oneself to crazy limits.
