The first package I got was a lovely Moomin package from Senja & Satu  ~ Thanks so much!
The choco coins were eaten ASAP I'll get a lot of use out of the pouch and the note book for sure.

The second was a lovely Owly themed surprise from my dear friend Sasha~ Thank you my dear!!!

I hope every one has a wonderful new year ~ happy holidays!

2017 Goals

Since the year is coming to an end, let's have a look at 2016 and compare goals!

Goals of 2016:
  • Improve on sewing - pretty much given up on this since moving 
  • Improve my piano skill - need a new piano!
  • Somehow manage to get enough time and money to visit South Korea ~
  • Minimize my stuff! I want to live more compactly~
  • Save some money
  • Finish decorating / move into my new place!  
  • Buy a Nikon D5300, has been on my wishlist for a while and my old D40 could really use an upgrade xD; Actually I bought the D5500 instead :3
  • Finish the first draft of my first novel (should be around January!) - I am still stuck on the finale!
  • Start on the draft of the second one!
  • Buy an electronic piano ~ x3 kinda pricey still, but I needs practise! I need a new one now, since I moved countries!
  • Finish memorizing Hiragana/Katakana (lazy) and get a start on finishing my Japanese course
  • Read more books~ 
  • Get a tattoo? (Shiina Ringo tribute PLS)
  • Get 2 more ear piercings? :D (I have 4 already)
  • Build a Pullip diorama~ 
  • Build a prototype for my website I've been working on for literally 4 years! (Cake.Town) 
Goals for 2017
As would be appropriate, my goals need a lot of adjustments since abruptly moving this year! However, I am quite satisfied with the ones I did accomplish for 2016!
  • Buy a new piano - to be honest, my fingers are itching for practice, and I am in constant fear of forgetting everything I've learned before! 
  • Pass the TOCFL(Chinese) Band B test in March
  • Keep my grades high enough to keep the TOCFL scholarship 
  • Finish my novel's first draft (seriously!)
  • Get a body for the cute BJD head I have here
  • Build a Pullip diorama (still)
  • Make 100 sales in my etsy shop - it's been going well so far with 63 sales, but I need to think of making more printables
  • Purchase a new laptop - electronics are so pricey here ;_;
  • Get a new phone - I'd probably aim for Samsung S6 or S7
  • Prepare a work and study plan for my amazing holidays! Winter break is over a month and summer vacation is amazingly long too!
  • Be more timely with sending packages to everyone! I apologize for being a terrible correspondent recently, thanks for all your kind care packages my fellow bloggers - you know who you are! I am preparing some much better gift packages for all of you for the coming year!
What are your goals? Did you achieve your 2016 goals?

Thanks for checking!

Holiday events mean trouble

Source: Fairyland
I momentarily thought I would be doomed with FL's new gorgeous girl as well as their winter event, but it seems I've managed to resist after checking the blank head sculpt photos~
Still she is very pretty and just perfectly styled!

Couldn't resist stickers + new girl

I still can't resist adding to my ever-growing sticker collection!
Flower crown rabbits are all the rage these days x3 Sooo cute!

I couldn't resist Daiso's cat notebook and stickers to help you learn katakana/hiragana!

I finally stopped being lazy and started making some new customs again! Here's Chouette ~ a cat girl!
However, it's mid-term week now! So see you next week if I survive!
