I'm just wondering, how stupid does this person think I am??? I reported it as a scam and deleted it.  As if I don't have enough troubles.  Lately, everytime I'm angry, I've been doing something creative.  I've been writing and painting mostly.  I'm also seriously considering putting the items on Etsy.  I don't know what else I could do with it, after all.
