****Little Dotty Bird is having a 'GIVEAWAY' ****

****Stop the press!!!****
The lovely Lisa (a.k.a Little Dotty Bird) is having herself a dotty little giveaway!
Spreading a little love around blogland with her handmade dinky dotty heart brooches.
Love,love,love them!!
And alls you have to do is simply... become a follower!!
How good is that?
Lisa popped over to Rubie Magpie and introduced herself a week or so back.
Me being me, nosey!! (cough) I popped over to Little Dotty Bird to take a peek at the author who left such a lovely comment.
So glad I did!
I was not disappointed!!
Not only is Lisa a super duper crafter, especially with her sewing machine but her voice behind her adventures has very much kept me entertained over the past week as I have caught up with her shenanigans. 
Can't wait for her next instalment!

Pop over!
Have a read for yourself!
Say Hi!
You never know, you could bag yourself a treat in the process!!


P.S I would just like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who wished Rubie Magpie a Happy '1st year of blogging' Birthday. 
Very kind of you! 
What an 'Eeeee-jit' I am for forgetting about it!!

And...welcome aboard to Rhiannon @ Me, Myself and I (Rhiannon is my swap partner in the 'I Love Hearts' swap over at All4meggymoo, and super duper crocheter). JoKnows, her blog is full of delectable delights and to Karen over @ Two Cupboards in a KitchenFind out just why Karen has an obsession with shelves! (love your idea behind your blog Karen!! genius! your shelves filled with gorgeous goodies will keep this magpie hooked with intrigue to what you will be displaying next!!)  Enjoy your stay here at Rubie Magpie, so pleased to meet you and happy you popped by x

Belated Wishes for Rubie Magpie

I missed my blog birthday!!

How on earth did that happen??

This time last year I was a mere twinkle in Blogland's eye.
Happy 1st  Birthday Rubie Magpie
Never did I think I'd see a year pass as quickly as 2012 did.
I think I blinked and missed it!
Nor did I for a second, think that peeps would be interested in the what I had to say. 
Here, there and around the world.
I just thought it would be these four walls, a large mug of tea and Elsie Mac (my faithful computer)
Over whelmed!!
That's what I am!
I have had such fun along the way. 
This new journey has been a great way to document my makes and finds and meet like minded crafts people along the way!
It's a delight!

I'd also like to take this opportunity thank each and every one of you who take the time to read my babble and to comment, I love hearing from you so 'THANK YOU'
You make my day!!

So here's to the next year of creative adventures.

What's on the horizon??
Well, what better way to start this year than a swap
I'm very excited!
Lots of peeps have entered!
Here is a list of all the entrants and links to their blogs pages.
Take a peek!
I am currently being introduced to some very talented crafters.

Snatasha3 - Lissylou

Fantastic result for our host, the lovely Shelley.
Now we all have our 'partners in swapping crime', let the swap commence!

My partner is the lovely Rhiannon over at Me, Myself and I (adventures of a crafty mum).
I am very much looking forward to stalking, (cough) getting to know her and sending her some goodies that I hope she will like and find useful?!
So far, my time spent reading about her adventures has been very good indeed and I am in ore of Rhiannon's crochet makes.
She is inspiring me to take this craft up again.
I'm still learning!
So please, if you haven't already, pay her a visit. 
Say hi!
You won't be disappointed!!

Ok so, over the next few weeks, I will be busy foraging around to find bits and bobs for my swap as Shelley would like us all to send our packages to one another by Valentine's day so I best get cracking.

In the meantime I hope the snow isn't disrupting daily life for you too much.
Keep safe and stay warm!
Grab yourself a large cup of hot chocolate, that's where I'm heading now and then returning to check out some more lovely blogs to get lost in.

Oh! and Happy New Year everyone!! 
Hope it's a good one for you all!!

Much love 


P.S I would also like to a big hello Lisa @ Little Dotty Bird, Tiffane @ An Aussie Felter Wendy @ Young Heart as well as House of Nicnax and Mirjam over @ Stins.
Welcome aboard, enjoy your stay here at Rubie Magpie, so pleased to meet you and happy you popped by x
