  21. Hi,

    I checked when I woke up yesterday (Tuesday) & these weren't up yet! I just checked again, 23 hours later, and they aren't free! Please help...

    Thanks so much,

  22. Wednesdays files are not up yet either (?)!

    Thank you,


  23. Hi Jennifer, I apologize for any inconvenience. The files are up everyday at 9am Eastern Standard Time USA time. I don't know what time zone you are in but that is when the posts are published. The files are there until midnight of the same day at the MINIMUM. Often times they are there until I finish compiling the post. I only have so much space on the shopping cart for "free, unlimited downloads" so hence the reason for the restrictions. Again, sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for participating with us!

  24. well, we kinda missed out then, I understand the lack of space and the restrictions, but still sniff sniff

  25. Love all the sweet, yummy, & realistic chocolates.
