      I am an email subscriber, but I have not received this printable email either. I searched my inbox and I haven't received an email for several months. I dug around my "junk" box just in case, but there wasn't anything in their, either. I wondered if my subscription had expired, so I tried to subscribe today. I received a message that says I am already a subscriber. I'm not sure what to try next.
      I'd love the could you help me access them?

      Help! I subscribed to your newsletter in December 2013, and I can't find these adorable printables anywhere!!! I had my actual computer search for all howdoesshe files in both my photos and documents... nothing--except for a few files that I must have downloaded from individual HDS posts. I opened up my saved email folder and found the original "Thank you for signing up" email with the link to all of the printables, but it brought me to a 404 error code page. I even tried subscribing again, but I was rejected because I was already a subscriber. Is there any way that you can send me a "special" link to download these super-cute back-to-school printables? In fact, um, would you even be able to allow me access to all of them again, so that !this time! I can save them in some sort of methodical, easily accessible manner? Based on how few of the downloads seem to have survived whatever I did to lose, delete, or destroy the rest of them, I'm missing a lot, which is making me feel very sad and angry at myself and rude for asking you to help me out. If you can't, that's fine! I still have the few that did survive Armageddon, and I sincerely thank you for sharing them.

      Oh!!! Maybe I could unsubscribe and then re-subscribe as if I were a whole new person??

      Thank you!
