A Little Late

I'm a little late to the party but that's okay! Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a Top 10 Projects of '08 Party. I decided to join in on the fun. Here are my favorite projects from '08 in no particular order. You can click on the project "title" to see more information about the pictures.
