My friend and fellow CZT Sindy P tangled it for me. Isn't it exquisite?
I was in awe when I unwrapped it - the time she spent, the thought, the work...
Here is a close up of the details on the roof. It is just beautiful!
The house is actually a paper-mâché box. She lifted off the top to reveal a bag of sugary rock candy - on strings. STRINGS!
As it turns out, she was on a trip to California with her husband the week before and found the stringed treasures at a specialty candy store.
Her gift tied many things together - our friendship that began with tangling, the origins of the string concept in Zentangle®, my blog challenge "It's a String Thing", and the book about strings that Sindy is currently writing.
Yes, Sindy is writing a book about strings - one of my favorite things. When it is published, I will showcase it here...it is as creative and wonderful as she is - stay tuned!
