going to market

Oh, my poor neglected blog!  I'm finding myself on Instagram often, and not visiting into my blog much any more.  Are you on Instagram?  Come find me, and stay in touch!  I'm emily_bluecorduroy

What's new?  These little zip pouches.  The perfect size to hold your phone and some cash, just right for a quick coffee date.  I love the gold chunky zipper.  Made with either a fun Ikat or a vintage floral on one side and a railroad striped denim on the other side.


Live near San Luis Obispo?  Come visit me at the Stitch Market!  Our twice a year hand crafted and vintage market, hosted by my friend Lindsey and I.  Lots of beautiful products, snacks, and friends!


Live near Oceanside?  The Queen Bee market is where I'll be headed next!  Always a fun gathering of talented makers.  Over 70 vendors!  Come say Hi!

cozy crocheted pillows


We've finally gotten some rain here, and it feels like a holiday!!  It feels good to get some winter weather and get cozy on the couch with a good book, or movie, or cuddly kid!  I've put some new pillows in the shop including some new round ones crocheted with a bobble stitch, and a granny square pillow I like to call "sunset at the beach".  Hope your winter days are feeling warm and cozy!

ruby by the sea

This girl!  This girl is a natural business woman.  She quickly went from selling lemonade and flowers at the top of the driveway, to selling out of her products at our local kids craft fair, to offering a fantastic pedicure to a growing list of clients, to opening her own etsy shop, Ruby by the Sea.

Thanks to so many supportive friends and relatives, her first month of being an etsy seller has been a huge success!  Her shop is now restocked and ready for more!


She has already expanded her sweet  line of resin flower stud earrings, rings, and hair clips to now include covered button stud earrings and hair clips.




There are countless ways she is learning through this process, and as a home schooled 6th grader, she is fortunate enough to learn in a very hands on way.  She is improving her crafting skills and refining her taste and style (as we all are continually doing, right?).  She is gaining computer skills as she learns to navigate and list items on esty.  She is learning good vs. bad customer service, expenses vs. income and how they relate to one another, perseverance, photography, item descriptions, materials sourcing, time management, accounting, and the list goes on.  Watch out world, this girl is going for it!



**Thanks Nana for the awesome sign!!**

Cyber Monday Sale and Stuff


Hoping everyone had a fabulous T-day.  My little family was sick, but we enjoyed taking the day to relax, and be cozy together.  

Use code CYBER15 in my shop on Monday to get 15% and a head start on your Christmas shopping!  The shop is packed with fun new stuff for winter, and I'm adding more everyday!

In other news, I finally got a smart phone!  I feel so grown up.  My favorite part is now being able to join in on all the Instagramming fun.  If you do instagram too, please, come find me and introduce yourself! (I'm emily_bluecorduroy)  It may take me a while to get used to taking pictures of everyday things, but I'm hopeful I'll warm right up to the routine.  So far I'm totally loving seeing my friends daily photo updates.

holiday stitch market time


I really love this time of year.  Every empty moment I am sitting on the couch knitting something, preparing for the Stitch Market. I love the feeling of finally getting to set up my display, waiting for the moment the customers start filling the room.  It gets so busy.  Everyone is cheerful, the music is playing, there's platters of cookies and treats to nibble on.  If we're lucky it's a little cold outside so that it feels like winter.  This year I'm especially excited because our Stitch Market will be a THREE day event, to make that excitement last just a little bit longer.  If you're local, come join us in welcoming in the holiday season!!

You can "like" the Stitch Market on facebook here to stay up to date on this and future craft shows.

australia, i love you!

A big thank you to my customers from Australia!!!  As we've entered into fall here in California, it is now springtime in Australia.  The beginning of long days, beach time, and sunshine.

The majority of my Australian customers are from Victoria.  And after learning where Victoria is, I am certain this is my dream vacation destination.  Not only is Melbourne located in Victoria...
