Etsy-versary giveaway!

September 10th, 2009

This contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered — I really enjoyed reading all your random facts! Congratulations to John Derek Racine for winning the $50 spree!

On Friday, my etsy shop will be one year old. The m-porium is chugging along, slowly & steadily — just last week, I sold my first two tees to Europe!

To celebrate my first 365 days of online-shoppification, I’d like to invite you to enter my etsy-versary giveaway — the winner will win a $50 credit in my shop, and I’ll cover the shipping to wherever they are in the world.


Leave a comment here telling me one random fact about yourself (may as well make this entertaining, right?).

How to get additional entries:

  1. join my facebook group and let me know you’ve done so; if you’re already a member, let me know.
  2. follow me on twitter and let me know you’ve done so; if you already do, just let me know. Either way, include your @name.
  3. tweet about this giveaway — make sure to include @mchenwears and the link “…”, and leave a link to the tweet.


Make sure you let me know how many entries you qualify for so that I can credit you with the correct number of ballots; feel free to put it all in one consolidated comment or in separate shots.

Nitty gritty:

  • I will collect all the entries in an Excel spreadsheet, then use an online random number generator to pick a winner
  • Entries accepted until Thursday, Sept. 17th, 11:59 p.m. EST, at which point I’ll draw a winner
  • ***Don’t forget to leave me an email address in your entry/entries so I can reach you if you win***
  • Anyone can participate!

    My Random Fact- I never drink to the bottom of a glass or bottle. You could line up 100 glasses I’ve drank from and they’ll always have the same amount in the bottom. The one exception to this is wine glasses- those I’ll lick out if it didn’t gross people out!

    Random fact: I locked myself on the roof of a library as a child in the middle of the St. John’s winter. I pondered jumping off the roof but it was high so I ended up sitting there until some snowboarders felt sorry for me and got a security guard who yelled at me for a really long time.

    Is there any historical evidence that Jesus and the apostles were real and not
    fictitious? I’m not talking about faith in Jesus (whatever you believe is fine),
    but rather, is it generally accepted by historians that
    a man named Jesus of Nazareth actually existed and wasn’t just an amalgamation of stories?
    How much of the bible can actually be confirmed as real versus stories or theories?

    (like… show more Jesus lived 80 generations in the
    past. Show me verifiable proof that your great-great grandfather’s great-great grandfather’s great-great grandfather’s
    great-great grandfather lived – that would have only been a dozen generations ago.
    Can you do it? You’re probably saying “But Andy, that was at least 300 years ago. What kind of records did people keep back in the 1700s? Now extrapolate that and go back another 1,700 years and tell me what kind of irrefutable evidence you can find for the existence of ANY humble human being in an era where most people were illiterate to begin with. Numerous sources mention Jesus. Whether or not you believe that he was the son of God is irrelevant. The man walked this Earth.
