Frida Kahlo Returns

It was more than a year ago that 6 artists participated in a Frida
doll swap. The challenge was for each participant to add items to the Bendi doll. The dolls traveled all over the the States, and for a while, lived in a Santa Fe museum as a group.

I have never learned "to play well with others", and I had some special challenges, as I did not like Bendis and I wanted to do all of mine myself! What I learned from this is that though Bendis by their floppiness (I don't do floppy real well, either) offer some special challenges, but can be not only a lot of fun, but turn out well.
I also learned that the whole is better than its individual parts....I love my doll, and appreciate the lessons I learned.
