Changes over here! Changing Kids! Changing CTMH Products!

Well, it's almost October which means it's almost time for the Pumpkin PATCH Fall Classic!  This is a show/banquet we put on every year to celebrate the kids in our therapeutic horsemanship program called PATCH by Design.

I made this canvas for a young lady who showed last year and will be showing again in a couple of weeks!  The horse you see pictured is Charlie!

I love these shows every year because I get to see how much these kids change!  It's amazing to watch them learn and grow in their horsemanship and do things they've been told they would never be able to do!  This has got to be the best part of the job!

As for CTMH product changes, this canvas is full of CTMH retired goodies in my stash!  (Some are still available in the clearance section at the CTMH shopping sites.)  The font for the title is from Artbooking.  The stencil is also cut from Artbooking.  Stamped flowers are from In The Background; laugh is stamped from the Love Life stamp set.  Paper flowers are in the clearance and called Just Blooms Floret Paper Shapes.  The 3D flowers are from Art Philosophy.  The Bronze Shimmer Trim adds just a bit of sparkle!  The patterned paper is the old Fundamental Paper; the pattern is different on the new ones.

The paper clip, lace and twine were all in my stash.

Yes, the products have changed over the past month at CTMH, but you can still find some of your old favorites in the Clearance and While Supplies Last sections at

This canvas is off to:
