I paid for it right away as she needed the money for an electric bill she stated in the post.
I sent in the info to her via note and she confirmed it as well ok. Stated it would be at LEAST a month before it was complete. Again, I was fine with that.
I commented back on the same post for an update about a month and a half later, because I realized her trello never updated to show my commission on her to-do list.
She replied promptly and gave me an update.
December I noted again, right before Christmas, asking if there was any updates, as I had heard nothing from her but continued to see postings of art, YCH's for sale and journals. She stated she was almost done with a wip and apologized for the delay.
That was the last I heard from her directly.
I noted again in February, she read the note but never responded.
Again I noted for an update at the end of March. This note has still sat unread.
So currently I am still down $50 or the YCH paid for.
Obviously it is too late for me to go through Paypal and dispute the charge for a refund, but I am hoping this helps others avoid what I am not dealing with, maybe it will end with me getting either the YCh I paid for or a refund.
