Follow your dreams...

Day 9 || Dream 

Thought I might have had a dream to doodle.
I certainly did a lot of thinking and doing before bed last night!
Alas, must have slept soundly!
Don't remember a thing!

Oh my! We have hit July
The seventh month of this year!
July 2013!!
Where is it going?

Many thanks to RM from RVH (hee! hee!, we like are abrievations!) and Hazel from Hazel's Crochet , your comments on my last post made my day.
Totally putting me at ease.
I was sooo grateful to receive them, I can't tell you! 
I would also like to welcome on board my brand new followers, hope you enjoy your stay and I promise I will have bits and bobs for you to read shortly.

Thought I would start by working in reverse really.
What am I up to right now??
For my challenge this month...
I have decided to get my doodle head on and take part in A Doodle A Day!

Hosted by Annelies over at her beautiful blog Studio Ann (simply an inspiring place to visit)
It is a Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest challenge
You could still play along though if you don't fancy following on one of these.
I'm Instagraming!
What else eh?
I'm still head over heels with it

Here is what I have to dooooo....dle!!

 So far: 

Day 1 || Tree {I'd like to be a tree}

 Day 2 || Mandala

I learnt something new yesterday!
This doodlehead had no idea what a Mandala was.
Thanks to Wikipedia I now understand.

Mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल Maṇḍala, 'circle') is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe.[1] The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T.[2][3] Mandalas often exhibit radial balance.[4]
The term is of Hindu origin. It appears in the Rig Veda as the name of the sections of the work, but is also used in other Indian religions, particularly Buddhism
{all the above taken from Wikipedia}

Gosh they are beautiful!
Just hope I did it justice?!

I am working on Day 3...
Will post when complete.

I'm still here...

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here.
Still wanting to blog!
Lifes adventures have just carried me away from Rubie Magpie.
I am in the process of gathering evidence of my adventures 
(trying to ease my guilt as I've been away far too long)
So please bear with me!!

Hope everyone is ok out there in Blogland??

Much Love
