I had gotten an email from this same woman during the Hurricane Sandy aftermath asking for donations and I did some research and it did not look legit so I didn't give. I had planned to contact the woman since I see her on facebook, but then I got busy with Seaside Soiree and forgot.
Then... last night Matt told me about this story and this morning Paul also told me about it.
It's so sad because she says she is a victim of ememies in the crafting community. OMG!! the look on Anderson's face when he hears this is priceless! Seriously this video tells the story better than I can.
