Happy Birthday to Santa Cruz and Me!

September 24 is a very important date here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. It is my city’s birthday, the first day of Spring and Friendship day all rolled into one. My birthday is also on September 30!

To celebrate this fabulous month, if you purchase two of my lesson plan e-books any day over the next three days (starting tomorrow Sept. 27-29) I will send you a free e-book of your choice or better still, send it to one of your friends.

To participate, this is what you need to do:

1. Purchase 2 e-books from the link here.

2. Email me at ale.sartroom@gmail.com to let me know which e-book you want as your freebie or your friend’s email address with the e-book you would like me to send him or her. Choose an e-book from the link above. In the Subject area of your email message please type: Friendship Day Freebie.

*** If you prefer, you can message me instead when you check out in the ‘message to seller’ area via Paypal or Google Checkout.


If you tweet about this, follow me on Twitter (@Ms_Alejandra), share this post on your blog or Like Art Lessons for Kids Facebook page –let me know about it by leaving a comment here on this post.

I will randomly choose one person to receive another e-book and announce the winner on Sept. 30 – the most special day of all 🙂

I love birthdays and celebrations, don’t you?

I hope you have an amazing week of teaching moments, you lovely talented people!
