Shuu Shuu Buttons

A small follow up to this post. It seems like Loish got word of what happened with Shuu Shuu:

on another note, i recently received some news about shuushuu buttons. for those who don't know, this was an online button store that i made designs for. the website suddenly disappeared and tons of people contacted me about orders that never went through, so apparently things weren't going so well for the girl running the business.

then i get a note the other day. turns out the girl who owned shuushuu buttons decided to give all her buttons away, saying she wanted nothing to do with them anymore. they got passed over to some random company that wanted to sell them off for a dollar each with no profits whatsoever to the original artists, or if they couldn't be sold, just give them away. THANK YOU SHUUSHUU for treating my buttons like cheap pieces of crap to be sold off by some random people i've never heard of in my life. i guess i can comfort myself with the thought that i'm not the one who embarassed myself by setting up an online website that FAILED miserably.

From her DA journal here.

EDIT: I thought I'd add this bit, as well. Apparently the company who the buttons were sold to contacted her and did initally ask to sell the buttons.

*** The above MAY be only a rumor. I'm only passing along information that I've read. If you were involved with Shuu Shuu, or bought buttons frm them, read below for Lindsay's (wetnosebaby) DA journal on the matter. ***

EDIT: And, another bit about the people Lindsay (who ran Shuu Shuu) initially planned on printing the buttons with....

EDIT: As mentioned in the comments, she's deleted her LJ, and she's pulled all her work from DA. I'll post her DA journal entry behind the cut, in case she removes it, as well. Collapse )

EDIT: From Loish's DA Journal:

about the whole shuushuu fiasco: lindsay contacted me and we're in the process of sorting it all out. if you don't know what i'm talking about, don't ask, it's over!

That being said, if you had business with Shuu Shuu, contact wetnosebeby on DeviantART, or via the e-mail above, under the cut.

I hate doing this, and I’ve been avoiding posting here for a while. I’m finally just too annoyed.

Two years ago (January of 2006), I sent a note to Lyx on DeviantART asking for a plush commission. She put me on a waiting list, and all was well. When it got to be the time for her to start working on it, the character I wanted was too difficult, so we decided on another one. I have absolutely no problem with that.

On Sep 29, 2006, she sent me a note saying she was halfway done. She sent me a picture, and the link doesn’t work anymore or I would post it. I remember being very happy with it. I received the link to the picture on January 28th, 2007 and I haven’t been able to get in touch with her since. The email address she has on her DeviantART doesn’t work, sending her notes doesn’t work, and trying to contact her on FurAffinity doesn’t work. She hasn’t logged in to DA for 29 weeks.

If anyone knows how to get in contact with her, let me know. I’m lucky I haven’t paid for this yet, but I got my hopes up. I would at least like my yearly update.
