Where did 2014 go?
It is hard to believe it has flown by so very fast! Maybe it is because I am so overextended these days! Sorry if it seems I have neglected my shop or my blog. It is not intentional at all. We moved this year, and I started full time Finnish language classes. The school is a good 40 minutes from our home, so much of my time (and my husband’s!) is taken up by travel and study. Then there is the homework! I try to do 2 to 3 hours a night including doing exercises, watching Finnish language TV, and learning vocabulary. Housework and laundry is a weekend chore.
The shops are pretty well shuttered for the year. Our Finnish postal services has said that the very last absolute day I can send anything to Canada and the US was the 12th of December (and that is Priority Mail!). While we do have overnight shipping available, it is very expensive here. IF there is an ornament you just have to have, please do contact me and we will see if it is possible!
I have already started planning and stitching for next year. We have a 2 week break for Christmas and I intend to use as much of that as possible for stitching! I will have the International Christmas Greetings again next year, and plan to introduce several new designs and words. Who knows? I may even get some designs up for Valentine’s Day!!
Thank you all for a wonderful 2014, and here’s to an even better 2015!
Hyvää joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta — Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
