And don't give any sketches or ANYTHING until you do!! She may still try getting your designs and ideas for free and then bring them back to her friend to implement. For your own sake make it a big deposit, especially if she has a habit of not being worried about loosing them!

I agree with this!

You really need to protect yourself here.  Make sure she knows before you have any more consultations with her that her deposit is NON REFUNDABLE (I agree on making it a larger than normal) and that the deposit check will need to clear first before you do any sketching of any kind.
