|A Peek Behind the Scenes|
An extremely difficult day for the Vanosdall family arrived on March 28th.
Our dear "K.C." left his post as "Senior Design Advisor" and my right-hand
office companion. Though my heart was broken we know he is now at peace &
in a much better place. His passing will forever tug at our hearts. We love
you baby boy and miss you terribly! We were so blessed to be your family.
Rest well, "K.C." your job is done.|
In time we put out an all points bulletin and began the search for a new
little someone to fill "K.C.'s" job. It's our distinct pleasure to
introduce you all to our new "Junior Feline Design Assistant. I'll let him
take it from here.....
My name's Muffin and I'm the new "Junior Feline Design Assistant" at the
Sweetheart Tree. It's a pretty big responsibility to be a "Feline Design
Assistant" and a pretty long title for one little Muffin! I know I have
some pretty big "paws" to fill! I'll do my best to help Mom make fun
designs for you to stitch.
This is a photo of me and my Mom on the day she and Daddy came to take me
home to my new house. The lady holding me is who we call "Grandma Sylvia" -
she's the nice lady who raised me until Mommy & Daddy came into my life. See
how excited Mommy was to get me that day? It was a long ride home that day.
Sixty miles! Daddy drove and Mommy held me in my car carrier.|
In this picture you can see where I sit and help Mom do her designing. I'm
right there next to her chair helping keep the files straight. Sometimes I
like to lay down on the files and keep them warm. Maybe that's what Mom
means when she says our new designs are "hot off the press" - what do you
Every now and then I get a play break. It's one of the "perks" of being a
"Junior Feline Design Assistant" here at The Sweetheart Tree. Mom doesn't
get many play breaks she just works, gives me scritches and lots and lots of
Lots of times Mom let's me pick which design I like best. This is the one I
liked best this time....see? I'm pointing right at it! I'm a big helper
that way! I like to get right up close to help with all those new designs.
I also like to watch the way the "mouse" moves around on the monitor too.
Sometimes I even try to catch that silly "mouse" - but that's what you'd
expect from a kitty right? Daddy says I'm spoiled but Mom doesn't care she
lets me sit right up on the desk and help. |
Well another long work day is done so I think it's time to stretch out and
take a little catnap. I'll be in touch in a later newsletter to let you
know what's going on around the office - & don't worry I'll keep helping Mom
with her designing so you can have lots of fun things to stitch. |
