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.

The Chen chiquitas say: thanks so much for partaking!

    Ahhh memories of band practices in the Chen family basement. Since I sold out and moved to california and miss home like crazy, I have to choose Serena’s Canada Rocks shirt.

    Wow, lots of interest! Can’t beat free stuff. As for me, tough choice, with all the options. I’d either go with one of Em’s T-shirts for Eva, or one of Jeh’s placemats for Nate. Words are coming soon, he needs to know the letters!

  6. Emily Choy
    April 23rd, 2009 at 16:20 | #6

    Cool stuff. I’d like We all fall down – trees on an asphalt cap sleeve raglan shirt.


  7. April 24th, 2009 at 09:53 | #7

    oh so fun!
    I think i would choose the Personalized Alphabet II Placemat for Julia. I think she would totally love it.

    My retweet for great justice!


    From Emily, I’d go for a men’s “See How They Run” t-shirt; from Serena, the “Canada Rocks” t-shirt. Both size small (I keep fit!).

  9. April 25th, 2009 at 00:14 | #9

    I love the Canada rocks one from your sister, and your rhino one. :D

    I just finished browsing both rockin’ websites, thinking that it would just take me a couple of minutes to pick my fav, and now, 33 minutes later, I just have one thing to say: THERE SHOULD BE RULES AGAINST THAT MUCH TALENT IN ANY 1 FAMILY!!…Holy Shit!…and then on top of that, you are both insanely adorable, outgoing and generous…what the hell?!?!…leave a little for the rest of us!….tee..hee..
    I wish you ladies all the prosperity, laughter and joy that you can cram into the next year….”Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves”….
    (Oh, and I almost forgot to mention my Jiggety Jig choice…or maybe the Leaves…damn!……..thank you again for the contest and once again “Bonne Fete”)

  11. April 26th, 2009 at 16:00 | #11

    I would rock the socks off of your twister shirt…but oh! The rhino sleeveless hoodie is even better! (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=15637707) I also really like your one-a-penny tote. [Enough rambling. Don't be surprised if I feature you on my site, haha.]

    And Serena’s stuff is so cute! I can see myself gifting her stuff to my Canadian transplant friends.

    Last but not least, I tweeted your giveaway here: http://twitter.com/craftyasparagus/status/1623276957. Best of luck with both of your sites!

    I love all of those monkeys prints. I may have to look into finding more money in my budget. <3 the monkeys.

    If I won, I would totally want the “All the Kings horses” shirt though from Emily’s shop. I love the color…and the print. It’s jhust too cute.
