Long time no blog!

A long time has passed since I last wrote a post here! It's been about a year, actually. I was worried I'd forget my passwords but luckily it's attached to my email account. 
Let's see, I should catch you guys up on what I've been doing!
I started school for cosmetology in December. I wanted to originally do fashion design, but that's not a realistic goal (financially) for me. At least, not yet. So I picked cosmetology because it is still creative, it has room for personal touch, and I've found that I actually like helping people find confidence and learn to work with their specific hair types. It's a blast. I'm going to school at the Aveda Institute in Seattle. It's in the middle of a fantastic neighborhood.... Capitol Hill. Too expensive to live there, but it's great going there 3 days a week. I'm happy with it. 
I am also currently unemployed... Which is a long story, but let's just say Seven salon in Pacific Place, Seattle is not what I thought it would be. 
This past 9 months has been wild and stressful, but I'm learning to let go, trust, and go with the flow. I've always had control issues, so this is totally new territory for me. I'm loving it though. It's nice to not always be stressed and worried. How have you learned to release tension and let things go? What has improved your life in the past year? 
Here are a couple previews of projects I've been working on:
My first ever weaving project! I found a tutorial on for a homemade loom, and I kinda ran with it. Weaving is a LONG process, but I think it will be a proud moment when I finish the project. 
I found this awesome hat at the Value Village on Capitol Hill and made this spiked hat band for it. I love it so much! 
Well, there's a couple of my latest projects... I'll share more in the next posts!
