Beware of JamJams on DA/FA//Advice needed- Resolved

I hoped that I'd never have to post here but I really don't know how to deal with. I've had my share of difficult commissioners but never have I had a trade gone so sour.

Oct 5, 2009: I sent a note inquiring about a trade with JamJams on DA
Oct 8, 2009:  We talk on AIM and finalize the the details of the trade. She'd make me the plush and I would draw her art in return.

Sept. 23, 2010: JamJams leaves me the following shout on my FA page

No no you don't have to do anything for me in return, I feel bad for taking so long. :/ I am also doing a sculpture for you. ^^

Nov 14, 2010: JamJams sends me the following note on DA
I just wanted to let you know your plush will be down in the next few days. I am working on the head and painting the eyes. Sorry its taken so long. :( I feel bad about it, so I thought I would throw in a surprise too. Also, did you still want to do the con badges for me and Etoh as our trade was for?

My reply:
We originally agreed upon art for two plushies, one for me and one for my boyfriend. That aside, your last comment to me on FA indicated that I didn't have to work on something for the trade so I considered the issue closed. I sincerely apologize but as of right now, I have to take finals for college soon- my time for art is limited and new artwork is undertaken at my discretion. I would appreciate if this could be resumed at a more convenient time. Thanks!

Her reply:
I have your ref and yours alone, did you send me one for your boyfriends? Then I will finish it and let it sit then. Thanks. :D

Nov 29, 2010: JamJames sends me the following note on DA
Well I finished the Fell plush.


Now we can either continue on with our trade or you buy this from me because its pretty shitty that I had to shed out extra money and you refuse to either do your half, or I could just sell this to make up the cost of the fabric and special ordering fabric and eyes.
What can I do? :/

JamJams sends me the following note on DA
I wanted to apologize I am more than happier to give it to you for free, but my husband is the one that told me to ask you to pay for it. I do feel sorry how the notes went down especially since I have known you for quite sometime. You can just have it, I don't mind because I don't want to resell someone's character because that's just note right. If you give me your address I can mail her to you and you won't hear from me again.
I accepted her apology and we have communicated a resolution to the issue.

Thanks so much for everyone's time and comments. I'm hoping that this case is resolved.
