A Blog Tour - DIY 180

I am still trying to get organized and unpacked.  This has been a bigger job than I even anticipated.  Some days I just get a little overwhelmed with all that has to be done so fortunately I have some wonderful friends that have volunteered to help me out. Today Vanessa from DIY 180

Another favorite of mine is this shabby chic maple dresser. I added some glass knobs and this piece turned out beautiful. 

I have shown you some of my favorite DIY projects, but another passion of mines is cooking savory meals.

These Spanish empanadas are easy and delicious and my family loves them. 

Thank you Cathy for having me and I love being here!

Thank you so much Vanessa for sharing some of your beautiful projects and a great yummy recipe with us today. Vanessa will be back with us next Thursday to share one of her favorite recipes.  You don't want to miss that.
This weekend I will be hosting the Share It One More Time Link Party and on Sunday I will be sharing a Christmas Ornament I made for a pre-Christmas roundup in time for you to make a few for your tree.  You don't want to miss this it's going to be great. 
Until next time - have fun creating something you love.
