    Hi all,
    a breif intro.
    I'm Sarah and im 35 and have 2 cats boo-boo and missy, and also 1 15 almost 16 year old daughter.
    I have been paint shop proing now for about 4/5 years, and like to make the odd card for relaitves, ie bithdays and xmas, i also like to dabble in scrapbooking and digital scrapbooking too, along with regular
    I am starting work as an Ativities Organiser for Elderly and frail people next week! I have previously worked with children for the last 14 years, and wondered if anyone could make any suggestions for arts and crafts to do with the frail and elderly, some of the above have differing degrees of dementia others dont.
    Any suggestions will be gratefully recieved.
    Cant wait to get to know other fellow uk crafters.
    Thanks

              thanks for the welcome, boo-boo seems to be a popular name for cats! lol mine is part somalian! which is an exotic breed! got her from a farm about 5 years now, she is a big fluffy thing pale orange or ginger! lol and missy is a tabby cat at 1 year old last month! What is a german pointer? is it similar to german shepard?
