Friday Favorites: Tutorials Galore

I guess I was in "learning" mode this week, as this week's favorites all have an educational bent to them.  From an array of flower arranging tips to an eye makeup tutorial from Adele's makeup artist, a few of my favorite posts from the week.


Confession: I do not have an eye for arranging flowers.  So this collection of flower-arranging tutorials from Apartment Therapy is now on my list of "saved" posts for next time I pick up an inexpensive bunch of flowers.

I love reading - and sharing - stories of entrepreneurs with successful creative businesses.  This interview with Good on Paper's Lisa Wong Jackson on Design Sponge has a lot of great info for people starting a business - including the importance of paying just as much attention to the "business" side as you do to the creative side.  (More financial tips on starting a business).

No place for a garden in our 15th floor apartment, but this post from Dave Ramsey explores just how much you'll spend to grow various veggies.

You may not have Adele's amazing voice - at least I don't - but you can have her almost-as-fabulous eye makeup by following this video tutorial on Lisa Eldridge's blog.
