Celebrating Strings and Special Things

This is a precious gift -

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 is as creative and wonderful as she is - stay tuned!
