You might recognize this as Park Avenue in Arches National Park, Moab Utah.
It is one of our favorite places to hike.

Triton Transformable  
Pattern on hold.   
This magical flower can transform into a Greek God.



 Triton, son of Poseidon and King of the Seas.
Hmmmm…… Who does he look like?

I designed this especially for my father, Ted Erikson, 
the infamous World Class Marathon Swimmer.
Even though he is approaching 90, he still swims regularly, 
competes and still achieves victory awards. 
His swimming record is incredibly impressive.
If you would like to peruse it, visit his link at: 
http://www.sdogv.com/swim.html

Triton is sitting on a boulder in the middle of the ocean, 
contemplating his power over the waters. 
Triton is happy to calm the seas or roar into a mighty storm. 
And, just as quickly as he arrived, he can transform back into an Enchanting flower.

Secret Pocket Fish Kiss - Pdf

This little fish has a little treat.
In its belly is a chocolate sweet.
Put it on a keychain or 
Use it as a luggage tag.
Hope it makes you smile, 
When it dangles from your bag!

Designed and Made Especially for:  
Ted Erikson

On April 29, 2016, Ted (my father) was honored with the prestigious 
John J. Schommer Award from Illinois Institute of Technology.

Healing Hand-Aid


Here’s a little ball, to take away your stress.
To exercise your hands, just grab ahold and press.
It can be used in other ways: to release your pain or anger.
Just throw it at the culprit, that raises up your dander.

Happy Mother's Day!
If you received one of these, I hope it brightened your day.
This is another little gift for my mother to hand out at the Florida clinic.
My mother tells me that the patrons look forward to these little trinkets.
One lady, who put it on her finger, said this one could be used as a ring.


The pattern is the dark blue flower 
(from my flower pencil toppers) minus the topper.
I attached a folded 4” pipe cleaner to the back as a leaf.
Very easy.
