About

Hello my name is Tpot but my real name is Shelly. Here is my etsy story.

Before I opened this shop, I did not know there was such thing as a button making machine. It's actually more like a button-making presser. One day, I lost one of my buttons I made with my zazzle shop. 30 days later, my web design professor found it on his desk, and he thought I gave it to him. I don't know how the button got there but I guess I dropped it and someone put it on the teacher's desk. I am not unkind enough to ask for the button back from the professor. Thank you considerate person! The professor showed it proudly to his classes, because he like turtles and the button was design of a flying turtle. Then a classmate/friend said I should get my own button making machine and make for more profit then what Zazzle.com can give me (Zazzle only gives a measling 5% the profit back to the artist). I…

Then a classmate/friend said I should get my own button making machine and make for more profit then what Zazzle.com can give me (Zazzle only gives a measling 5% the profit back to the artist). I thought that friend was joking because a machine would not fit in my average home. But then I found one on ebay it was not as big as I imagined. I emptied my bank account because it was pricy and bought the machine/presser.

I like making random things because I love how I can actually see the final product, and it surprises me that people actually buy them. I like to design things relating to my favorite cartoons and video games, somehow. I'm surprised people actually like my buttons of fat hamsters and a kawaii, half-eatened octopuse sausage. Someone mentioned me and now my stuff are featured on all over the internet like www.BuzzFeed.com and www.TheMarySue.com. People are funny.

Then I try making other random things like bracelet of hamsters, AT, Totoro, and Zelda. And people buy that too. But now I think I may have to discontinue making bracelet. Too many people buy it, I can't keep up demands, too much stress, not enough time for designing. It's just to mass produce so many bracelets and I don't like it because money doesn't matter at this point. I just want to design and sell to amused people!

I still have my zazzle shop just for fun: http://www.zazzle.com/tpotty

Besides drawing and designing, I play video games, watch anime, American cartoons, read weird books, and feed my dwarf hamster mealworms because it's good for him. I have 1 stupid cat. His name is Cue but he is always clueless and is scared of everything, like all the time. I use to have two cats, but the other cat died due to old age and his name was Cub. Cub was awesome and sweet but also very fat and was kind of a jerk sometimes. I also like to drink tea of all kinds. Now you know why I am called Tpot in the internet.
