August 6th, 2009 — Thanks

Thank you for all your support over the past couple of days. I really appreciate everyone’s well wishes. I am hopeful that the situation will be resolved shortly. I would appreciate it if, from this point on, no one contacted the parties involved on my behalf via phone or email.

Many thanks again,
Lauren

August 3rd, 2009 — Sad Story

I am very sad to report that today I found out that someone named Samantha Beeston has been stealing my work – big time. She even won an award for it. Thanks to jenslucky7 on Etsy for giving me the heads up. Check out some of the links here:

Her portfolio website:

(looks like she took her site down)
