A possible look out...

So, I was told to post here in hopes something can be solved if not, people are warned.  About a year ago (at RCFM 2007) I bought a piece of art from an artist named Bushy Cat.  I know she's at a lot of cons and can be found everywhere pretty much with tails behind her and a giant table of art. 
Anyway, I comissioned her for a 45 USD 2 character picture.  I left an email and name and such for future contact.  Sense then I've had a few email changes, however I have it set up with thunderbird to give me my emails even on old accounts.  I hadn't heard back from her and for the life of me couldn't find her contact information (her website wasn't complete then I don't think).  So, I see her at the last FC.  I talk to her and she said she sent the sketch and never heard back from me.  Even had it rejected in my email (which was possible for being in the spam folder but I pay attention to even my spam folders).  Anyway, we work things out and I give her a new email along with my mate's email.  I think even a phone number, but I don't remember.  I even had worked out with her to change the person I'm with in the picture so that it matched my current mate.
I leave and send her an email asking if she had any information she needed and checking if the email she had given was correct... a month later, I get a reply.  Okay... I can handle someone being busy... now each email I send is 2 weeks or so delayed with her and eventually she drops off again.  A couple months ago, I asked if I could at the least have my money back I paid her, if she is too busy with the drawing.  No problems there, she can finish it.
Now... I emailed a week and half ago asking the status and nothing... not even an excuse...
I hate causing trouble for others, expecially artists that aren't mean to me, but when I paid for a piece at the least I'm expecting the first picture I asked for.. I could care less about the changes as long as I got my money's worth.
So, now I'm still out of luck and worse I'm hearing rumors to not comissions her and it's not making me happy... so yeah.. that's my story, and hopefully someone can help and at the least I've put her up as a warning to others...
