Review of 2017 + Goals for 2018!

Hello everyone! Welcome to the last day of the year! Wow, I really can’t believe that 2018 is just hours away. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite memories from 2017 and also some goals/ new year resolutions for 2018.

So first I’ve got a quick question, what do you think of my new design? Honest opinions.


I finally (after much trial and error) figured out how to use Photoshop a little and made some graphics. I also figured out how to upload a custom font to it as well.

I got a new theme, totally new color scheme, and new fonts!

*Goals for 2018*




I also wanted to share some goals/ New Year’s resolutions for 2018!

Take a photo every day. Of anything. As long as its a photo it counts. Period.

Start The Striped Plaid or whatever its name is gonna be. (you will eventually know, but it may be a long wait)

Gain 250 followers!

Write in my bullet journal every day. I’ve been kind of falling off the wagon, some nights I remember some I just don’t.

Be more organized.

Keep my room/craft area clean! (I just redid my room and I’m so excited to show you! Its almost finished!)

Drink more water.

Exercise more. Yeah, sometimes it feels like I just sit inside all day, either staring at a screen or making stuff in my room.

Go outside every day. This relates to the last point.

Work my hardest at school.

There’s a few more, but this post would take forever to write if I listed them all. XD

Well I hope you enjoyed this post. I have some really fun posts coming up next week so make sure to stay tuned! Have a great rest of the weekend!
