A PDF Giveaway: Las Posadas, A Mexican Christmas Set

For some last-minute fun, I thought I'd give away one copy of my Las Posadas: A Mexican Christmas PDF:

This downloadable PDF features my hand-drawn paper dolls, clothes and accessories for a paper-doll Christmas, Mexican-style. The set includes (in both black-and-white and color PDFs):
  • the daddy
  • the mommy
  • the daughter
  • the brother
  • a traditional Mexican outfit for the daddy
  • a traditional Mexican dress for the mommy
  • two posadas outfits for the daughter
  • two posadas outfits for the son
  • accessories, such as a pinata, Nativity figures to carry during Las Posadas, lanterns and a guitar for a Rodriguez family member
So, let's have ourselves a drawing then! To be entered in the Las Posadas with Paper Dali drawing, just leave a comment. I'll be taking names (in a good way) until midnight (Pacific time) Dec. 22.

On Friday morning, Dec. 23, I'll go old-school and write up the names then have one of my children pick a winner and post the winner's name here. It's short notice, but it was Xhonane's fun idea.

Let the drawing begin!

Las posadas son una tradicion que debemos cuidar de dos formas, primero que nuestros hijos aprendan la catequesis que ellas encierran, pues los misioneros franciscanos las usaron para evegelizar a los indigenas, y segundo que no se distorsionen con fiestas en donde de quien menos se habla es de Jesús.

How fun! We read Tomie dePaula for the first time this year and my 7 year old is really taken with the story. Plus, I saw these in your Etsy shop and thought how great it was. Thank you for a chance! Have a wonderful Christmas!
