UPDATE – as of 9/24/11, Lorilee has decided to stay with us on Redbubble. Give her a warm welcome back to our group…. she will be in charge of the wonderful challenges. Thanks Lorilee!

Hello Members of Squirrels and Chipmunks,

I’d like to start by saying that I’m very sorry to see Lorilee leave the Redbubble community. She was a great friend and a WONDERFUL host of Squirrels and Chipmunks, as well as some other RB groups. She will be sorely missed!!!!!!!

Thank you RB Members!!!! (stolen images)


A sincere thank you to all of the Redbubble members who advised me that three of my photos were stolen by a person named Zafar1 on Pixdaus.com.

The amount of concern that has been shown and willingness to help each other on Redbubble is overwhelming. It’s just like having my own family looking out for me!!!

Although our efforts to have stolen photos removed from this site have not yet been successful, hopefully this person and our photos will be removed.

If you haven’t heard about this…. see this post by Jaclyn Hughes

Thank you again!!! :o) Lori
