Lost Contact - atateatarin (Resolved!)

EDIT: this has been resolved with the artist. She got back to me immediately and was quick to post the completed images. I'm quite happy with the result, and I will seek business from her again in the future!

WHO: atateatarin

WHERE: FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/atateatarin/

WHAT: This was a small commission, but I'm not the only person who has been left without any contact. I paid $12 for two "peanut" images of my character and my boyfriend's 6 months ago.

I left the artist to her work for 3 months before sending her a note asking if there'd been any progress. I didn't want her to feel like I was pressuring her. However, this note still shows up as "unread" on my FA notes outbox, and I have received no response.

my note asking about the status

A month ago, she posted a journal on FA about some plushes she was auctioning, so I sent her another note regarding the commission, again asking if she had made any progress toward it. This still shows up as "unread" on my FA notes outbox and I have not received any reply.

I don't appear to be the only one who's completely lost contact with her, as shown in this journal.

At this point, I'm counting this as a loss. I know it was only a $12 commission, but there were at least a few people who also lost their money on this one.
