Elisabeth Omdahl, group six.

I am a printmaker based in Norway, an absolute beginner in bookmaking.Doing an edition scares me, but the challenge was too tempting!
I was lucky to get my first choice of titles, so I will be struggeling with "Silent Wolves".

Elizabeth welcome!
I have "seen" you around and it is so great to also see you here!
BAO is a unique place for creating, inspiring/being inspired and making new friends! I am sure you will love participating as much as I do!
Happy 2012!

Hello Elisabeth! I'm so happy you are in my group! I was looking at your blog the other day and sincerely admiring your wonderful work. Silent Wolves is a great title--I actually thought of taking it myself before I picked the ones I did. I'm looking forward to seeing how your work with it evolves. This is my first time with BAO too. I think it's going to be a big learning experience for many of us, no matter how many books we've made already.

Thank you guys! Thank you for your warm welcomes and generous comments.
All excited and ready to go.
He-he, it almost feels like a big goody-bag placed right in front of me.I will dig into all the blogs of new and old acquiantances on the net as the new year comes along.
I wish you all a happy new year!!!!
Elisabeth

Hi Elizabeth, welcome...I too am new to bookmaking and editions...so you are not alone in this. I like to think by the end of this project we will not need to state this again.

Hi,Vicki.
I guess we all just have to let the anchors go, and paddle away!
Happy sailing.
