Midsummer is just around the corner, and June is turning into its last week soon, amazing! The great weather we had in May and beginning of June has disappeared, and rain has been if not constant, a regular visitor at least, but now it
is promised just might be getting better. Tomorrow and Saturday are full of the traditional Midsummer celebrations here, and I wish some sunshine for those days as most of the activities are planned to happen outdoors. And just in case sun will not shine, I have stacked some new yarn (in sale, yippee) and great magazines.
Business-wise last weeks have been pretty slow, and Finnish Post is trying to make it even more slower by increasing the shipping fees (which are pretty high already). They actually applied the new rates in beginning of June already, and justified the increase by saying that "everything is more expensive these days" and also "people keep sending less and less mail" - blimey! Do they really think adding the cost of sending increases the volume? I would be stunned (and annoyed, really) by their logic if this wasn't the way everything is reasoned around here these days, and I just can't be bothered anymore. All this said I must say that Finnish Post makes the most wonderful stamps each year, and those Moomins are just too cute.

And also as I think whining is
never not a great option, I am offering the FREE SHIPPING on my etsy shop for ALL ITEMS ANYWHERE 20.6. - 24.6.2013 not only to get my hands on those cute Moomin-stamps but also to create that mail the Finnish Post is so desperately asking us Finns to send! So if there's something you've been eyeing in my shop, now it's time to have it completely shipping-free! Happy browsing!
Lovely Midsummer Eve's Eve!
