Mug Rugness

Hi, has the mug-rug madness caught up to you yet?
I love them, they're cute and fast to make, and the best of all...

 ...you can gift them to someone you care about! I think they'll make great gifts for Friendship Day on July 30th.


 Did you know that Friendship Day originated in Paraguay?

"The Friend's Day had a historic antecedent called Crusader global friendship that is a campaign in favour of giving value and enhance the friendship among human beings, so as to promote the Culture of Peace. It was designed by Dr. Ramon Artemio Bracho in Puerto Pinasco, Paraguay in 1958. From that idea, was set July 20 as the Day of Friendship and is celebrated in several countries in South America. In Paraguay is celebrated on July 30. Its importance lies in the fact that favors the values that enable dialogue and harmony in society and the world." (copied from here: http://news.deviantart.com/article/53388/)

And Wiki says: "Traditionally, the International Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August, among several Friendship Day celebrations on other dates, held by a range of countries. On 27 April 2011, the United Nations declared 30 July as International Day of Friendship. "











We're leaving tomorrow morning for a 3 day vacation to the capital. I hope the 4 hour car drive to Asunción doesn't make me car sick or kid-sick. :) Hope you have  great week! Thanks for checking in on me!

See ya, Brenda
