I'm so excited to announce this blog is going through big changes! I'll be changing the url to taylorrachellemccord.blogspot.com within the next week so be sure to bookmark the new address! Also, if you haven't noticed already, I redesigned the layout and blog banner for a cleaner, more streamlined look. I need more simplicity in my life. Lately, life has been throwing a lot at me from all directions. I think that's what they call becoming an adult. Despite many moments of frustration, I'd say I'm handling it well. Although I've been wishing for a vacation to never never land, I'll settle for some good live music and a glass of wine.
Spring is the time of new beginnings, but I think the transition to winter can bring many of those too. With the cold weather and rain comes more time to blog, DIY, and discover new music and art. Since I spend my free time immersed in music, I decided I should make that more of a focus here on the blog. I need an outlet to share the playlists constantly running through my head and the amazing concerts I experience here in LA.
This is what I'll be listening to as I travel home for Thanksgiving. A quick one hour flight, but the right music is essential. Can't wait to stuff myself with food and then burn off all the calories in the Black Friday shopping rush. Onward and homeward. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Friends, this is a big moment for me! My Etsy shop is officially open!
I've been trying to make this happen for years, but the timing never seemed to be right. Maybe it's also due to the fact that I was a marketing major and it's hard to plunge head first into a business venture without weighing all the consequences and work involved. Well, I finally threw my responsibility aside and took the risk. Putting yourself out there creatively is scary, but this has been a passion of mine since since I was old enough to make my first craft project. In the past, my customers mostly consisted of friends and family and I never made them pay, so I'm proud to make this dream a reality. Push myself to grow and learn.
I hope you enjoy! Bows and old keys are two of my favorite things! :)
Thanks to all my friends and family for their support, encouragement, and technical expertise. I couldn't have opened my store without you!
