She got in contact with me this morning, and paid me in full for the commissions I did for her. Turns out it was a miscommunication between her mate and her as to whom was paying me, wrapped up in the mess of him getting ready for basic. :)
I'm sure she'll be fabulous with other artists from here on out. :D
