HI Robert!  Thanks for that comment.  I'm just not sure how to add a photo to an event.  I've added the Blarney card to the profile, but I'm not sure if that's what you're requesting.

Cheers, Jo.

Hello Robert,

I'm the 'founder' of Nordic Book Arts ( and would like to ask if it would be possible to have the site added to your list 'Other related NING sites:'?

I would very much appreciate it if you could, Thank you!

I work with the Doverodde Book Arts Center & Festival in Denmark, and we are just trying to spread the word that we are out there (-:

Kind regards and best wishes for the New Year,

Mette-Sofie D. Ambeck

Hello Robert, am having a bit of trouble uploading a photo onto my profile.
Sarah Bodman tried to help but to no avail, so she suggested that I contact you.
The image is a jpg. 584kb from a folder.
Sorry that I have not been very involved in your wonderful website, but I have now finished 2nd year fine arts at Griffith in Queensland , so I will be able to be a bit more active.
I really appreciate what you have set up, it is wonderful.
Warmest regards,
Christopher Hardwick
