Dana, you're better than I..LOL. I said no resolutions this year but I do have some things to do this year.

You must really need to paint those faces as you listed it twice. I hope you accomplish all your resolutions :O)

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: I like your list of goals for the new year. Good luck and get those goals. Keep in touch

Ms. Leo said...

Wow, you either have more time or more will than I do! I could only do about half of that! So half of that is my goal for 2013!

Carrickters said...

If you manage all those resolutions, you are going to have a very busy 2013. Looking forward to seeing your achievements. No. 11 sound particularly interesting.

Muff said...

When I was younger I made resolutions but at this age I know I'm not going to keep them so I don't even bother anymore, lol.

V. said...

My main goal for this year is to get a momoko doll, which is very difficult (=expensive) for someone in Portugal. Hope to sell some unwanted dolls/clothes to raise some funds dor that :D

Black Doll Enthusiast said...

These are all very nice and admirable resolutions, D7ana. I hope you're able to achieve each successfully.

Hi Dollz4Moi, Marta, Ms. Leo, Carrickters, Muff, V. and DBG. I am going to try to keep abreast of the these goals. I felt that I fell short last year so ... I wanted this year to be more active. Guess we'll see come next December ;-D

I look forward to reading YOUR posts - about successful 2013 resolutions met!

D7ana said...

Oh and good luck getting a Momoko, V. If you do not mind loose dolls (no longer in their box, minus original clothes and packing), you might be able to find one reasonably priced.

Here's to doll-related New Year's resolutions! Good luck in achieving them.

D7ana said...

Thanks, Mrs. Anderson! I match that wish for you, too ;-D

Vanessa said...

Quite an impressive list! Good luck!

D7ana said...

Thanks Vanessa! Your Jan 2 2013 post was inspirational. So I'll see what happens when I put some effort into accomplishing things ;-D

Cindi Mortensen said...

Wow! Impressive list! I don't make resolutions because I always break them! LOL But this year I have only one goal, not resolution, but goal and that is to finally get my blog going. Life keeps interrupting, but I'll get that under control as well! You will enjoy FDQ: In Focus. I have it, and it's been very helpful for doing my doll photos.

D7ana said...

Thanks Cindi! I thought if I go bigger with the resolutions then I would more likely get some of them done, lol.

I appreciate the back-up for the FDQ: In Focus book.

Best wishes getting your blog going. Let me know the link so that I can update my BlogLinks ;-D
