it happened all by itself....

LDC (lady dot creates) is the inspiration of a 24 year needlework shop owner with eyes far bigger than time allows. piles of stuff: beads, oil cans, pins, spindles, spools, felt balls, silk fabrics, wool, antique salt cellars, vintage stem ware, chenille, velveteen, twill tapes, far more than can be used in a lifetime that fills me with inspiration at every turn, all started because of a desperate need for needlework finishing supplies.

The brain snaps on when the alarm rings every morning and doesn't unwind until the brain finally zips out in the evening - every day is an adventure and i just never know where it will lead me.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have and check back often - you never know what will happen when the head and fingers get together. because i use a lot of repurposed items - whatever creation comes of that is in limited supply because the treasures come from my stash of goodies.

It's a real joy to be able to spend my days doing what i love and to be able to share those creations with you. thanks for visiting at lady dot creates.

Frequently asked questions

Missing Packages Via USPS

TRACKING NUMBERS ON EVERY PACKAGE. i have no control and no more information except that tracking number. my job ends after usps has entered it into their system.
usps info as follows: Email -
Call: 1-800-ASK-USPS® (1-800-275-8777) Email: USPS® Customer Service Call: 1-800-275-8777
I cannot pay for postal insurance - which is useless anyway. i have no more control than you do.

Etsy has a refund program now for packages not received - BUT - it is only accessible to you as a buyer - not to me as the seller so you need to fill out the forms - i am not allowed to do that BUT finally, there is SOME recourse.

if something is wrong - please contact me FIRST before leaving a less than 5 star review. i am more than happy to work with you to make it right for both of us - BUT, once that star rating is in place, it is almost impossible to get it made right. i respond almost instantly to messages - please message me and we'll work together to make sure lady dot provides you a good experience.
