2008 Before & After Recap

As I looked through last year's posts, I realized I've become a little crafty. Of course, with so much inspiration from fellow blogger's, it's not hard to see why I caught the crafting bug. Southern Hospitality is hosting a little before & after blog party, and I wanted to share the few things that transformed around here.

A Girly Bulletin Board

You do so well with the Before and After pics. I never realize that I'm getting into a project until it's done; then, I don't have the before pic. I gotta take a lesson from you!

I'm a little (OK...a LOT!!) behind on reading everyone's before and after projects, but I'm finaly getting out from under everything at work and need some inspiration! I love the little family heirloom bench, and would love to find a piece like that. I also remember seeing your ballerina skirts when you first posted...I still love it!! :-)
