Elizabeth, with slugs

12, 9, 8, 7 inch stuffed toy Hug Me Slugs by Elizabeth RuffingHere is a bombardment of me with slugs…and at the bottom, one kitten. My very patient mom took these for me, because I need new photos for my toy shop listings, to show relative sizes in my Hug Me Slugs and other critters.

I explained I want the ones where I look friendly and trustworthy and not where I look like I am annoyed and in pain. Thank you, friends!
