Dream Great Dreams & Make Them Come True

Industrial Wall Clocks, Bicycle Wheel Clocks, Bike Gear Wall Clocks, Film Reel Wall Clocks, and Vintage Camera Clocks. Transforming discarded, obsolete, and vintage items into works of art that also happen to tell time very well.

My sweet grandson was the inspiration for my Etsy store...
I started selling in November 2013 after my 2nd grandson was born that year with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia or JMML (you can learn more about this disease at https://thejmmlfoundation.wildapricot.org) and Noonan Syndrome (more info on this disease can be found at: http://www.teamnoonan.org/information/). This disease can bring many health troubles (small stature, learning disabilities, congenital heart defects, GI difficulties, etc.) it is too soon for us to know just how he will be effected, but in the cuteness department, he is nothing but!

In his first few months he endured weekly blood tests, a transfusion, bone marrow biopsies, genetic testing, surgery to implant a feeding tube, and went through his first round of chemotherapy. I’m happy to say these things have helped and he is slowly gaining weight and his spleen, which had been dangerously enlarged, has seen much improvement.

If you want to help ~
There are many wonderful charities researching childhood cancer and helping sick kids do fun things. I encourage you to find something that speaks to you. Through my grandson's journey I developed a passion for increasing the bone marrow donors registry. I want to spread the word and let people know how easy it is to register and in doing so, potentially save a life. The process is free and the swab kit comes right to your door.

Thankfully at this time my grandson does not need a bone marrow donation (shortly after he was born we thought this was a very real possibility but learned that most kids born with Noonan Syndrome resolve JMML all on their own without this procedure.) But this selfless act of kindness could potentially save the life of another beautiful little one. Sadly, 6 out of 10 never receive the bone marrow donation they need...

If donating isn't the right choice for you, and there are a million reasons why it might not be, please tell someone about this... You know, if I tell 25 people, and they tell 25 people, and they tell 25 people.... well, you get the idea ;-) One of the online ways you can sign up and request a FREE swab kit is at:
http://www.deletebloodcancer.org

A portion of every sale goes to his medical expenses, or anything my son and daughter-in-law feel they need. Your purchase makes a real difference in my family's life so THANK YOU!

I'd love you forever and ever if you'd follow Dream Great Dreams along it's merry way

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to add a personalized note to your order, just include the details in the notes section of your order. FYI, I literally copy and paste whatever you write, so *please* double check everything!

I do not have the ability to gift wrap something because I don't buy or use wrapping paper myself. A few years ago on Christmas morning I watched my family unwrap gifts and then fill several large trash bags with discarded wrapping paper and it made me so sad! The next week I went to the thrift store and bought pillow cases, tablecloths, etc. and made reusable gift bags and haven't purchased gift wrapping since. Just like making clocks out of discarded materials, I love finding new ways to save our beautiful planet!

Custom and personalized orders

I love collaborating with clients! It's super fun to create something to match your color scheme or your vision, just convo me. If you can dream it, I can create it!

International Orders

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE:
you will be responsible for any import fees, duties, VAT, GST/PST, or any inbound customs tax or Royal Mail fees assessed by your country upon delivery, and these are not included in the amount you pay when you complete your purchase through Etsy or PayPal.

I will not illegally mark your package as a "gift" to try and get around this, so please don't ask. I run my business as I do my life, with honesty and integrity. End of story.

If an item gets left in customs and is not picked up and is eventually returned to me, your order will be cancelled and the item cost refunded to you less shipping, packaging that cannot be reused, and any fees that I won't get refunded.

What happens if tracking shows an item is delivered but I can't find it?

Please understand that I cannot be responsible for an order AFTER tracking shows it has been delivered. If this happens, and gosh I hope it never does, I will make sure you have all of the information you need to file a mail theft report and assist you with a claim if applicable. Mail theft is a federal crime so I will encourage you to follow up with your local police department and file a police report (and I will do the same on my end, if appropriate). The sooner you do this, the better, as the police department will follow up with your neighbors and the postman to get input on suspicious activity in your neighborhood or any deliveries to you they may have seen. This is very rare but does happen and I want to help in any way I can!
