It's now some years later.....

My intent all along was to post here what I was in the process of making or had made. That didn't happen. Instead, I got a part-time job working in retail. That had morphed into a full-time job and then much more than that. My time was taken. I earned money but I had less time to feed my soul with creativity.

An old friend is in the same situation as I am. I was. I have stepped back down to part-time and will now be trying (as a million and one other people) to sell my wares on Etsy. We'll see how it goes. But you never know until you try. I have to try.

Not having any followers on this blog leads me to think that it won't make any difference if I post or not. But if it makes a difference to me, then I need to do it.

If anyone out there is interested, you can begin to (slowly) see what my friend and I have on Etsy if you go to this shop, CampbellKeithdezigns.  (Etsy is stupid about their shop titles.) The name of our business is going to be Campbell & Keith Dezigns. We have no labels yet. No website. But we have a name and we have a plethora of ideas. If you like an eclectic mix of things.....diversity and color. You will like what we (will) have.

I will post a few of my items here....and the first posting is of a simple pair of earrings.

Originally I was going to call my jewelry designs "Simply Yours"...but I'm toying with the idea of "Moondance".  But I haven't decided on the final name yet.

 I will also be making children's clothing, books, blankets, journals, notecards, paintings, pin cushions...and whatever else I find I have an interest in. If you have anything you'd like me at

If I make it...they will come.  (That is what I'm counting on.) 

Hopefully yours............

One of my favorites

Originally, I put this on my Etsy site to sell, but since decided I wanted it myself. I'll make more of these later and add them to Daydream Dezigns on Etsy, but for today. This one is off the market.

My newest obsession - Key Fobs

KEY FOBS...yeah Buddy!! I think I'm going to call them, "Key-Fobulous". When I find a craft or a project that I enjoy I can't stop with making just ONE. I have to make several...and several for ME could mean 40 or 50.
I found the hardware to make these fobs from an Etsy site. Mamasgonecrazy or something like that. Appropriate for me I thought. LOL So within a few days I had 50+ fobs made. I told you it was my latest obsession. I make them in two widths. 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch. My latest find at T.J. Maxx, yesterday in Dallas, was a hanger that was perfect to display them. Now if only I could find a cute place around here to sell them. Prices FOR NOW...are $4.00 for the 1 inch and $5.00 for the 1 1/4 inch.
My next "obsessional project" is going to be pin cushions. I can just feel it. Check back later to see those. Should you want to view more key fobs go to Facebook and search for Daydream Dezigns. Click on photos and then on the key fob folder.

Thanks for stopping by!

You can find me on Etsy, here~~~~~~~>

Serendipity Scarves

Definition: Serendipity: The faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable and agreeable things not sought for. Precisely what I would hope would be the reaction to my scarves. Valuable, agreeable...even though you weren't looking for them.
When I decided to start making fleece scarves last winter (they are embellished with yarn crocheted on the edges) I had no idea I would end up with SOO many of them. Last count, before the ones I have given as gifts and the ones that I have sold to friends, I have made 112 scarves. I currently have 91 to sell through my Etsy site. I haven't exactly gotten them uploaded yet, but will do that within the next few weeks. Currently, if anyone out there....HEEELLLLOOO cyberspace, would be interested you can view said scarves on FACEBOOK by going to Daydream Dezigns Facebook page. You don't have to be invited, but you do have to be on Facebook. Click on the PHOTO link on the side of the page and go to "Serendipity Scarves" album. There are about 40 scarves listed and tomorrow there will be more.

"Lady Bags" - first installment of purses

I have decided that I am going to call my purses: "Lady Bags" with a lady bug in the logo somehow. They will be under the general umbrella of my business, which will be called Daydream Dezigns.

So, here is the first installment of my Lady Bags.

Similar to "that little denim dress". Simple yet very functional.

This next whimsical purse is made from fleece. I took my leftover pieces of fleece and
cut 3/4 inch strips of the fleece and s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d it, by hand, into long thin pieces. Yarn. Then I crocheted purses. This is the first....of many. :)

All my Lady Bags are for sale. Most, if not all, will be on my Etsy site, eventually. Until I get them all photographed and uploaded to Etsy, they will be shown here, first.

I would appreciate your feedback if you would

be so kind as to leave me your opinion.
