hello, great.ly!

In all the oodles of spare time I have (HA!), one of my favorite things to do is to discover new websites and artists creating original and exciting products. And if they're making it locally, all the better. Sure, I love Target as much as the next person, but there's something wonderful and important about supporting small businesses and independent makers. I truly believe that.

If you're a little bit like me, and after the kids are long in bed for the night, you might stay up later than you should surfing the net aimlessly, happening on wonderful little crafters or finding them via Instagram. A bit like going on a treasure hunt, I suppose, and it's tons o' fun for me.


In one of my late night hunts, I came across the website Great.ly, and after falling in love with what I saw, I decided to set up a boutique of my favorite makers' products. Essentially, Great.ly is a one-stop shop for independent makers, and whether they're making purses, shoes, art, furniture, toys or jewelry -- you name it, Great.ly has it all in one place. And they're only continuing to grow every day.

 In an effort to spread the Great.ly love, I wanted to share some of my favorite new discoveries on the site. I hope you like what you see, and perhaps you'll consider their makers the next time you need a special gift for someone (or for yourself)!

Thanks for sharing. I love supporting small businesses. I will definitely be checking out some prints because our walls are quite bare.
