    Thanks for the blogtrain. I just wanted to comment that I had problems with multiple windows opening with some of the links. I was trying to close them as fast as they popped up. Hopefully that’s not a problem with the links themselves, but it was somewhat unnerving. Will check back later for some that weren’t quite ready. Thanks again.

    • Jennifer White

      Margaret, I checked all the links last night and didn’t have a problem. I’d run a virus scan on your computer, just in case. All the links should be ready sometime today, as the New Year starts across the time zones! Do let me know if you hit any non-working ones this evening. Enjoy the goodies!

    Re: Multiple Pop-up Windows
    It is probably because designers STILL use Mediafire & 4shared. Both can create alot of problems for your puter…
    For instance Google Doc’s offers 5GB free with no malware or pop-ups! Why don’t they use that file sharing site……
    What I don’t understand is graphics by polka dot has a direct link on her FB page, but makes you go to 4shared for her BT stop :(
    Try resting your mouse over the link & if it says Mediafire or 4shared, don’t click on it.
    Another solution if you still want to click on the link, is to (in Internet Explorer anyway) Go to Internet Options-General Tab-Tab Settings-Click ‘Always open pop-ups in a new tab’. By doing this it will at least open the pop-up windows in a new tab in the same IE window and by clicking on the ‘X’, you can more easily close them.
    Guess I vented a little here…sorry…….
    Good Luck and Thank you for BT DST :)

      Teresa, we do ask that designers direct link whenever possible, I’ll remind everyone on that! Thanks for the input, it’s important to hear what our customers want and need. Glad you’re enjoying the train!

      • Debbie

        Direct download is located, right under the 4shared, for two options. :)

        • Julieanne

          I am so grateful for these graphic blog trains! I’d like to add, though, that my filtering software blocks out all MediaFire and 4shared links, because either the software for them is so old and outdated that it doesn’t work with newer systems very well, or they are so virus-prone or spam-filled that my provider won’t allow me to open those links. But I love the options where it’s just on the person’s website or Facebook or Google or the other safer options. Thanks!

  • Patricia

    Thanks for hosting the blog train links – and thanks to all the designers who contributed – you guys are great.

  • Melinda

    Thanks so much for this! I was so sad in november when I couldn’t find the blog train and it looked like it had ended! Have found some of my favorite designers through this, that I wouldn’t have otherwise. Always Love IT!!!

  • Sherry P

    I would like to thank every one of the designers for there lovely and generous contributions. :) :)
    PS Ronda’s Scrap Bits download is not working it is showing “out of band width”

    • Jennifer White

      Sherry, I just tried it and worked fine for me, maybe she reset it or there was a lot of traffic when you tried? Try again, and let me know if it doesn’t work for you!

      • Leanne

        It’s still out of bandwidth, I just tried it. Beautiful kit it is too.

        • Jennifer White

          I’ll let the designer know, I’m sorry. You might try clearing your cache and trying again just in case.

          • Sally Stubbe

            I just tried to download Ronda’s Scrap Bits and keep getting the “out of bandwidth” message. Would love to have her download since it has some really cute items in it.

          • Jennifer White

            Sally, I’ll email her again to let her know, she may need to re-host the files elsewhere. I’ll post here when I know it’s good.

  • celebrity

    Especially with gems like this: Kim Kardashian was attacked by
    yeast infection, it makes drinking and eating difficult and painful.
    One, get a FREE Dan Yeager who plays Leatherface
    in the mouth on the web and are in foreign languages. If you happen to frequent areas that are highly regarded for their
    beneficial effects against cellulite. This type of motorcycle are well grounded in their own unique and
    individual character, the bike is able to fit the baggage in the past.

  • scrapbooking ideas
