The Adventures of Sandy Clown

Sandy Clown's Heritage



     The original Sandy Clown was made in 1948 by a member of Pastor Carlson's church in Northern Minnesota. Sandy was given to Lori Erickson (Sissy) as a gift before the Carlson family moved to Alaska.

     In 1962 Ellen Carlson (Mother) took Sandy Clown apart. She made a pattern and created a new clown for Lori's son, John.

  John received Clowny for his first Christmas.                John reads to Clowny.

     John named his clown "Clowny" and he was a pal. When John grew older, he passed Clowny on to his brothers and sister.

     Lori took Clowny apart in 2000. She made a Sandy Clown for each of her grandchildren. This new little clown inspired her to write Sandy Clown's story.
