Look at what I got in the mail!

Last month on the Zentangle blog, there was a post titled Nightentangles, in which Rick and Maria asked the questions: Is it a good thing? Is it a bad thing? Who's to say?

Several people shared interesting stories in the comments, and Rick & Maria had a random draw and giveaway of Maria's beautiful tile. And I won! Yay me! This arrived in the mail this week. And as you can see, when you get mail from Maria, the envelope is a work of art too. Thank you Maria!
