Polymer, Peyote & Prose

Thanks to my sister/author Kristin (and online publishing) there is now a real published book about some of my jewelry. How amazing is that?

A collaboration with my youngest sister has resulted in Polymer, Peyote & Prose - a small, colorful collection of photos, poetry and stories about some of my art. Kristin is a published author who writes about artists for magazines like Kansas! as well as Christian vacation Bible school curriculum for Concordia Publishing House. (to be updated)

My mother was thrilled and wants copies for her friends. But I'm hoping that it will be a cool addition to my "sales table" or be helpful when applying to galleries. It is a very cool feeling to see your art in print, in color. A preview of Polymer, Peyote & Prose by Kristin Kaldahl is available online at where it can be ordered by anyone.

I want to publicly thank Kristin for her time and creative efforts. And if you have any urgings to get your own work published, I highly recommend checking out On-demand self-publishing is simply the coolest use of technology around.

Bargain outfit

This photo-journey is for Liz...."Necessity is the mother of invention" - so when I found a bargain skirt in an unusual blue hue with no top to match, I bought two the same. Total cost: $13.20. It's light-weight, can be literally wadded up in my suitcase and reversed if I spill on it. Great for summer cruise wear.

Begin Blog Now

As the writer of Ecclesiastes said, "For everything there is a season...." and my blogging has begun. This is certainly only a test, so I can see what it looks like. Perhaps more, later.
