2021 PDMAG Gold Awards
Last year has been hard with major life changes. It kept me from making any art dolls but when April loomed ahead, I knew I had to sit down and make something just to take another step in this doll-making journey. It was the 2021 PDMAG Gold Awards deadline.
I had a lot of ideas but nothing was really catching... inspiration was a bit hard to catch with most of my supplies still in boxes plus I did not have a work space properly set up, and to top it all, there was a LOT of other work to be done.
Then this little girl came to me. Sampaguita Girl gets up early in the morning to pick tiny jasmine flowers and string them into leis. Before the first mass of the day, she heads to the church to sell her leis. While she waits, she dreams of a time when she doesn't have to wake up early in the morning to pick, string, and sell jasmine flowers.
I was able to finish her on time and she came home with the 4th place in the Intermediate category.
