The Chen Sistahs’ Spring Cleaning Giveaway!

April 15th, 2009

This contest is now closed. Congratulations to our six winners! Thanks to everyone who entered.

My big sis Serena and I are on a bit of a high these days for plenty of reasons — we’re just a little giddy from all this nice weather lately, we’re both gearing up for our birthdays (just one day apart at the end of the month), and we’re each drumming up new designs for the summer.

So in the spirit of Spring cleaning (read: freeing up some space to make way for new stuff to come), we’re having a giveaway!

We will draw SIX names from the comments left on this post and, in the order they’re drawn, winners will receive their choice of:

We’re each contributing three prizes… so if the first three winners choose items from Serena, then the last three winners will get their choice of items from my shop — or vice versa.

How to enter

  1. Leave a comment here letting us know which item you’d choose if you won from either Serena’s site or my shop.
  2. For an additional ballot: blog about this giveaway — include a link to the post.
  3. For an additional ballot: Twitter about this giveaway — include a link to the tweet.

Nitty gritty

  • Entries can be submitted until Monday, April 27th, at 11:59 PM EST. We’ll do the draw on April 28th morning (the day between our birthdays) and announce the winners here. Good luck!
  • Please make sure to include a valid email address to reach you if you win.
  • Winners will be notified by email and will be given three days to respond. For any winner who does not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
  • Open worldwide. We’ll cover S&H :)

The Chen chiquitas say: thanks so much for partaking!

    I’ll do you a double and leave Comment and a tweet

    What a talented sistahs, you both have some wonderful designs but if I have to choose one to win, it’d be the See How they Run shirt from Em’s Etsy shop.

    Happy imminent Birthdays Em and Serena!

    Don’t even know what a Blog or a Twitter is but way to go Chen Sisters…’artsy fartsy’ sure does run rampant in your family. I would choose from Em’s shop just because I have seen her stuff up close and personal (Jenny). Happy Birthday to you both!

    April 16th, 2009 at 09:39 | #7

    Oh, I’ll be commenting, blogging AND tweeting on this one. I’ll send you links as proof @mchenwears…. And I’d choose from M’s shop – I’d love something with ‘one a penny, two a penny’ or ‘jiggity jig’

    I love the placemat! So cute, colourful and educational!! Do you take custom orders? I’d love a “name” placemat for my kiddies.

    Hey Em! Glad to see that spring is Springing for you!! I’m totally in for possibly winning Merch. I’ll have a hard time narrowing it down though!

  12. April 16th, 2009 at 15:30 | #12

    Since I already have several of Serena’s amazing creations, I’d choose from mchen’s shop: I’d love a sleeveless hoodie/t-shirt (x-small) with See How They Run or Jiggety Jig Squid!

  13. April 16th, 2009 at 15:44 | #13

    Dag, yo. Cool stuff! I’d take “See How They Run” :) Gonna tweet about it @kdettman and blog on kdettman.tumblr.com.

    I think the work on both your sights is awesome and I would be happy to receive a piece from either of the sistahs’ work. Go you girls go!!!!

  15. April 16th, 2009 at 17:10 | #15

    Oh man sir squidly (aka Jiggety jig) is amazing! Happy Birthday you two, keep on doing awesome things <3

    April 16th, 2009 at 19:23 | #17

    Very hard to choose, but my choice is “life is but a dream”. A close second is “Canada rocks”.

  18. April 16th, 2009 at 20:31 | #18

    You are both fabulous! But if I really had to choose I would pick “See How They Run”

  19. MC
    April 16th, 2009 at 21:52 | #19

    Happy bday in advance chicas! Tough choice to pick but I would expand my collection with some of Serena’s art (no offence Em).

    Hey Em,

    I never cease to be amazed by your work and your creativity! Kudos to both you and your sis.

    Tough call, but i say “See how they run…”

    If I win, From Em’s site I would choose Jiggety jig – squid on a 50/50 heather black unisex tee in medium. From Serena’s I would take a Curling Beaver shirt in adult medium.

    Cool contest.

  26. April 17th, 2009 at 08:23 | #26

    I can’t choose! I have some of each of your designs and I love them all! If I win, you can surpise me.

    Happy Early Birthday, Girls! Keep your spirits high as it’s a great inspiration for us all.

  27. April 17th, 2009 at 09:49 | #27

    Ooooo, definitely I’d choose an animalbetized placemat from Serene’s site and “Five, Six pick up stix” or the jiggity squid tees from your shop.

    What a fun giveaway! Such great work from both of you!

  28. April 17th, 2009 at 10:51 | #28

    What a great giveaway!
    I think I would choose a shirt from Emily’s shop – maybe the squid!! It’s hard to choose ;)

  29. April 17th, 2009 at 13:11 | #29

    I love everything! If I’d have to choose, it’d be an animalbetized placemat from Serena or “Life is but a dream” from your etsy shop.

    I also tweeted about your giveaway, because it is a great idea! http://twitter.com/aliofish/statuses/1544112440

    Hope that you are enjoying the sunshine.

    I love Mchen’s stuff. Cool and beautiful. The cassette shirt has a cool retro vibe.

  32. April 18th, 2009 at 16:57 | #32

    Hello ladies!
    I have always been a fan of Mchen’s jiggity jig printed shirts. I also love Serena’s photographs(especially the sun through the leaves print)

    Love Chenwears! i’d love to get a shirt!

  34. April 19th, 2009 at 08:17 | #34

    I love your stuff! If I won, I’d pick the “see how they run” tee. If it’s good enough for Bryan Adams, it’s good enough for me! :D

  35. April 19th, 2009 at 12:21 | #35

    Ooh! Impossible choices. My little monkey would love one of Michelle’s Monkeys but the proud to be Canadian Tshirts are lovely too, and I’m a big fan of ‘The Bear’ (it’s his hands – just love solid hands!)

    Think if I do win it will have to be the Monkey/s. Guess I’ll then just have to buy something with the bear for myself, and the Canadian theme for DH.

    I’ll go and twitter this too, right now.

    Awesome idea! I’ll toss my name into the mix :)

  37. April 19th, 2009 at 14:07 | #37

    What a lovely idea! I’d absolutely adore to have one of the Yarrrrr – 8 x 10 giclee prints. It’s the cutest thing ever :)

  38. April 19th, 2009 at 21:53 | #38

    I’m going to twitter and blog because I love your work! And especially see how they run. megsreno.blogspot.com & meg_glover.
