A LITTLE VIDEO ABOUT WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Hi There! I’m Emily Ley

I got my first name from my great grandmama and my last from my college crush. We share it with our little boy, Mr. Brady Ley. The truth about me is that I have a background that has nothing to do with any of this. I ran the city ballet for a bit and dabbled in non-profit fundraising. After earning a few degrees, I married Bryan and started really following my love for design. I began designing five years ago - with a box of colored envelopes and the fanciest fonts on the block. And here we are! This brand has grown into something that truly sets my heart on fire.

I don't design all of this just because I love gorgeous monograms and office supplies. Don't get me wrong, I'll take a crisp circle monogram on just about anything (just ask my husband!) but this shop is about making life just a little sweeter.

We're all busy: mamas, business women, creatives, friends, wives, sisters, daughters, pig-tail brushers, tailgate hostesses, PB+J makers, tightrope walkers and... I'll be darned if I don't make the best blueberry poundcake this side of the Mason Dixon (thanks, Mama!). But that's beside the point. At the end of the day, it's about simplicity. Let's simplify life so that we can take care of our need-tos and focus on our want-tos. Let's ditch that standard of perfection and embrace a simpler, more what-matters-most lifestyle.

"Wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Luke 12:34) For me, my treasure is my faith, my family and giving back. My goal is to help you simplify and enjoy your treasure just a little bit more. If you ever need a thing, please feel free to drop us a note!

Meet My Sweet Team

Gina Hafley Hello! I’m the email answering and design creating Shop Director here at Emily Ley. I became part of the EL team after a career in non-profit fundraising and special events. It was during my time at one of the country’s oldest universities where I coordinated an event, and met my guest speaking, football coaching, now cute husband. Being a football wife has made me no stranger to traveling, and well, moving. Over the last five years, we’ve called four states “home” so I can say, the joy is most definitely in the journey. On weekends, you’ll find me cheering for my alma mater from afar— and in the stands on Sunday afternoons. I enjoy a good cup of coffee or wine, trying new recipes, and have a difficult time resisting a cute striped dress!
