Today I am celebrating two years since I bought the domain name ArtisansOfAmerica.info and began looking for artists to promote via Blogger. Since then, the blog has received over 65,000 views and the Pinterest board for ArtisansOfAmerica averages 30,000 views per month!
And I am introducing a whole new item for my lavender shop, Lavender Filled Pendants. I only made then using the ultra thin double-sided satin ribbon, which doesn’t come in the same range of colors at the wider ribbon, but I was able to make them in 28 colors. With a few of them, I even used the vintage Jacquard ribbons I began using this summer for some of my huge lavender wands.
So now you can wear real lavender around your neck and be able to enjoy the aroma. I also made them in the form of a bookmark with a clasp at one end so you could hang it from the rear view mirror of your vehicle instead.
I hope you visit my Etsy shop to see them: Pedricks
And here is to many more years of celebrating Artisans Of America!

Eva Miller grows organic lavender in Canada and weaves it into multi-colored lavender wands. I am very impressed with the ones she makes using more than one color of ribbon because I know from experience that it is not an easy thing to do. The Victorian ladies began weaving the lavender from their herb gardens into wands to preserve the lavender and use it to scent their homes. Only fresh lavender can be used to make these. The flowers are still on the stem when they are woven, so the when the flowers dry and fall off of the stems, they are all held safely in the ribbon basket which has been woven around them. To release the scent, just gently roll the end with the flowers in it between the two palms of your hands. These can last for many, many years! I hope you visit her store by using this link: YourZenZone
