Banana Slug Plushy is a Calendar Girl!

My banana slug plushy was recruited for a photo on a major calendar. Since then, she's been dressing like a cover girl. See her here with all of her glamorous makeup, wearing a chic sheer red mini-dress. Maybe fame has gone to her head, like it did for Tomcat plushy?


Actually, The New Fat, a creative graphic design agency in Nottingham, UK, discovered my banana slug plushy while searching for their next calendar girl. Banana slug is featured as Miss August, and I guess it is more of a centerfold, because she is totally nude!

Seriously, see what great work they did with her photo?


A big thank-you to Suze Moore and everyone else involved at The New Fat! Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer

  3. That's really exciting news... but maybe you're doing right by keeping an eye on her... I fear she already placed a printing order for autograph cards. But who knows, Hollywood might be calling next... ;O)

    Greetings

  18. Hi Suze! It's always a pleasure to hear from you. As you can tell, I'm very proud to have my photo on your August calendar--what a thrill! Hey, don't worry about your spelling of banana. I just hit the wrong key while commenting on another blog, and I signed out as "lushpussycat." That didn't exactly make my day, as you can imagine! :-D Thanks again for everything, Suze!

  19. Hey jen my friend,

    I see Banana slug has found her inner calling as a calendar girl!
    Girlpower all the way!
    I just love the tigerprint couch she is on!
    I look forward to the next blog.

    p.s. I've been looking out for miniature furniture but havn't come across any yet, fingers crossed I do soon and then we can exchange addresses :)

  20. Hi Jennifer! I just want to say how much I love your avatar. Is he the one called Plushpussycat or is that your nickname? Forgive my ignorance. One of these days, I want to read the stories on your blog. Right now, I'm limiting myself to my regular sites because I'm having problems with my eyes. That's what happens when we get older, so I'm told. Anyways, I am so drawn to that sweet little face, it's almost insane. I don't know why. I just want to hug it! You are certainly very, very talented!

  21. Hi Kate! Thank you for your sweet comment. Yeah, girl power all the way! ;-) I love the bit about her inner calling too--so funny and cute! Thanks for stopping by.

  22. Hello Lucille! Thank you for stopping by. I hope you visit more often, because you certainly made my day! :-) Here's the scoop: My blog is called Plushpussycat, as is my shop on etsy.com. My avatar is a girl kitty also named Plushpussycat (she has a boyfriend named Tomcat, BTW!). My nickname is not Plushpussycat, although you may start a trend by your asking (!). I really appreciate the boost your comment has given me and hope to see you again here. Take care, and thank you for the great questions!
