growing ranunculus roots

For all of a few hours yesterday, we had beautiful weather! It was warm, sunny, and finally felt like spring was on the way.

Well... That was until it got gloomy and cold all over again.

Before it got too bad, I got to work on planting some ranunculus roots! I will say goodbye to this brown thumb if it's the last thing I do. All I want to do is successfully grow one plant. My dad is amazing when it comes to growing plants. It's like everything he touches comes to life. Me on the other hand... Though I'm not quite as ambitious as him and I have no intention of tackling an entire garden filled with fruits and vegetables and flowers galore, I think a few flowers and perhaps a house plant or two should be a pretty decent place to start. Small goals, people. Small goals.

  • I had no idea that people have resume templates for sale out there! Kind of silly, I suppose, what with all the amazing designers in the world, but it wasn't until I saw a post about resume templates on Chapter Friday that I even knew they existed! Definitely worth checking out. In this day and age, we don't need to stick with the classic black and white, Times New Roman resumes. As creatives, it's fun to let our personalities and creativity shine with a resume that helps us stand out!
  • It's been a goal of mine to learn more about SEO. I have read a million and one articles that breeze right through the process without much of an explanation of why certain things matter in the process of finding keywords, etc. Some people do a great job of the why it matters, but don't give much of a "how-to" guide on how to get started. I've read through a few of the "chapters" in the keyword research guide on Backlinko and it has already been so helpful! I feel like I'm finally getting a clear understanding of it. 
  • A skateboard deck as a hanging shelf? Genius. I love when people use skateboard decks as a canvas and go to town painting them and making them works of art. Doing that and then turning it into a shelf would be such a neat way of displaying just about anything.

Have you come across any neat articles or DIYs on the web this week? Or maybe you posted something cool on your own blog? Leave a link in the comments! I'd love to check them out!
