I am the host of this exchange and am responsible for the assembly and distribution of the exchanges. The Designer of the products showcased have no bearing on the distribution time so AmyLeigh is not at fault here. I believe you've participated in one other exchange and that happened to be one of the biggest ones.
Perhaps the download links would be delivered earlier if I was to enforce everyone getting me files by the deadline but this is not how I run this exchange. I can probably do a better job at this and will try.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
