If you've ever lived in Michigan, you've probably heard of or maybe even found Petoskey stones. And if not, consider me honored to introduce you to them.
Petoskey stones are pieces of extinct, fossilized coral from 300+ million years ago, back when this part of the world was covered by a warm, inland sea. Each dark spot represents an individual animal (its "mouth," specifically)! You can find Petoskey stones mostly around the city of Petoskey, Michigan, in the northwest corner of the lower peninsula, although they're also found elsewhere.
These fossils helped get me into geology/Michigan science, and I made a YouTube video about them a while back if you want to learn more. But the current news is: Petoskey stone stickers are now a thing that exist in the world, and I love them. ☺️
They're dishwasher safe, waterproof, come with free shipping — and you can find them in my Etsy shop! Link in bio, or Etsy.com/shop/AlexisJDahl.

Quite the catch. A big, beautiful Petoskey stone wet from last night’s rain. This was actually found in the winter, one of the best times for rock hunting along the empty beaches. Made of fossilized coral, ancient and unique to our little corner of Michigan. #petoskeystone #petoskey #harborsprings #aframe...
Sent out this piece yesterday. It was purchased for a lobby in the new wing of McLaren Hospital in Petoskey! That being said, I hope no one has to see it in person. 🏥🌳

This week has been really really hard. Almost three years ago my aunt left this earth and grief if tricky, because in this last week, the brokenness and pain from losing her has taken me down. So today, in the darkness, I went to my safe place, to try to find peace. I didn’t find much peace, and I didn’t find many blues or agates, but I did write a chapter of my book and I did breathe a little bit. Grief isn’t linear, grief is a fucking mess (pardon my French but I believe it truly is that extreme!) I miss my aunt so much, I wish she was here to visit with and hug, I wish I could text her and read her “I love you, niece”… So we keep keeping on, through the dark and through the pain, we find little joys like handfuls of blues and agates, like banter and laughter with my girl, like little afternoon trips with the kids to the county fair…we have to do what we can do to find the light in the dark. Sorry I don’t have anything profound to say today, but here’s to brighter tomorrows while we still remember how important it is to feel.

SURPRISE!!! I just released some coasters in the shop!
We've been working hard all week to get enough made to restock the stores and also offer some to you guys. It feels so good to be back at it.
Work with a newborn is definitely different than what it was before but the hubby and I have been working in shifts to make it happen and I'm so proud that within 2 months of being new parents were already back at it. We (mostly Aric 🤣) made about 100 coasters this week and we're also working on a few new products I'm excited to share with you guys soon!
Hop on over to the shop if you've been waiting on coasters 😊 Heres to a great weekend!!
Just popping on to let you guys know we're all set for another coaster release!!!
This Friday at 8am, and you won't want to miss it!!!
We recently have taken on a few more stores so our website drops might be even more limited until we really get the hang of selling wholesale and keeping these shops stocked so if you've been trying to get your hands on coasters, I'd set an alarm!
