i made you a present!


as promised, my friends, i've got some party favors to give away in (slightly belated) celebration of my 1,000th Etsy sale! i made some stuffed silliness - a flying popsicle (like my tattoo), a bedazzled donut, a piece of pizza, and a skull with donut eyeballs. the skull and pizza have pinbacks attached. i'm also giving away a set of Gocco printed Jammy Toast notecards, which were the very first things i sold on Etsy. and since i have a surplus, each winner will also get a 1" button of my friend the face-melting donut. UPDATE: it has been suggested that my prize offerings were not "manly" enough for my general audience... so ya know what? i've got wrestling prints to give away too. limited to a pre-printed selection i have on hand. take THAT!

here's the deal: leave a comment here letting me know what your favorite item is from my Etsy shop! (if anyone wants to suggest the next additions to my wrestling series while you're at it, i welcome your input!) --ALSO! if you head over to Betty Turbo's Facebook Page and "like" it, leave a comment here noting that and it'll count as a separate entry. starting next Monday (9/19) i'll randomly draw one winner each day till these goodies all have homes! that's five days in a row. check back here for the winners or leave a valid email address in your comment to be notified if you win. if you're a member of my family, don't be silly, you know i would make you this stuff if you asked me.

thank you again to all my Etsy friends and fans for your support!
xoxo
Betty Turbo

Macho Man Randy Savage eating ice cream in heaven is by far my favorite!

Herzog Zwo said...

I LOVE the super rad Rocky Road ice cream plush softie!!

La Photographie said...

My current favorite is the tattooed lady with the bootie pretzel!

I have to start off by saying- You're Incredible!! I love your illustrations and I grew up a huge wrestling girl (named after Jesse the Body Ventura, right here!) so to see two of my favorite things- wrestling and sweets- all in one beautifully illustrated package? Well, its pretty exciting! I love Mick Foley so I'd say his barbed wire bat cake is my favorite, but I love the meringue with Ricky The Dragon Steamboat! Suggestion: the Dudleys may make a good tag team drawing- I KNOW those boys can eat some cake! Maybe shoving into each others mouthes :) Also-SABU would be awesome. His face looks like a shriveled blondie or something, plus he's really cool. Anyway, best of luck as your etsy shop continues to grow & thank you for sharing your drawings with us!! <3, Jessa

ps- just reading your blog over quickly has really inspired me- I'm an artist who's recently started designing divorce themed greeting cards and its great to know that people are really making etsy stores work! Thank you!! It gives me hope of getting out from behind the desk and working on art! I'm working on printing some samples of 8 designs, let me know if you feel like taking a look :)

Choosing just one favorite just isn't fair. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I look through all you amazing prints.If my arm was being twisted to only pick one, i'd have to say it's the Macho Man Randy Savage eating ice cream in heaven. He's fringerific.

Rebecca said...

My current favorite print in your shop is the Message from Space!! But anything with baked goods also excites me.

Keep up the good work, lady! I still remember that one time in Nashville I traded you a vintage hat for some cards. I was so psyched about meeting an Etsy celebrity. :)

Wockenfuss said...

Love the Ric Flair (it's on my wall) and Jake the Snake prints. Also partial to the the Arn and Ole one, but how about some Arn and Tully? Brain Busters!

The Iron Sheik would also be awesome. Swinging wire whisks like his trademark clubs.

Bubbajoan GotHerJawShotOff said...

You are SO talented! I love pretty much everything you've created but a couple of my favorites are the "YO ADRIAN" dessert quote from Rocky and the Whoa Black Betty print. Also, the Inspirational Quote Boomboxes are not only amazing but a magnificent improvment to the standard motivational poster. Well done, m'lady!

craftythug said...

The wrestling prints are my absolute favorite. I'm trying to decide which three to buy and hang in my kitchen. Obviously the Jake the Snake one is a MUST..and CM Punk...and Mick Foley...and Bret Hart...see? This is tough!!

Sami Spoon said...

"Ohhh Betty Turbooo tell me everything you knowww" WWWYKI

I gues like most I am forever in love with Macho Man eating icecream in heaven
Especially for the fact that he's eating a Hulk Hogan ice cream bar

Which reminds me to propose to you, plush WWE ice cream bars... you know you want to make them

(email ; samispo0n@aol.co.uk)
I liked you on the ol' Facebook too, so you can check my name over there is Sami "spoon" Thornton :D

Best of luck to all who enter, Im totally excited

Benny the Ball said...

"You're the bomb!" - still my favourite.

blahblahwrestling said...

My favorite item from your shop is by far the Lanny Poffo greeting card. It makes my laugh every time. I think I like it even more now because Colt tells a story on his podcast about what a positive person Poffo is and how it has effected his life. Get on the happy bus.

Michael Williams said...

Considering that I make my living making donuts for Dynamo Donuts in SF, the CM Punk dropping tattoo donut elbows definitely has to be my favorite!
