Review/Giveaway: Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles

Since Lyla was born I have become uber-obsessed with taking photos.  I just want to document every little (adorable!!) thing she does.  The thing about this new day and age of digital photography--it seems rare that people actually get printed copies of their photos.  I'm trying to make more of an effort to do that.
I used to work in a frame shop and have a real love for wall-art and framed photos.  I think pretty much every wall in our house has something hung on it.  It's so tempting to plaster framed photos of Lyla all over our house.  But rather than just framed photos.... how about a printed ceramic tile?  That's what Sadie Ryan Keepsakes offers.  Pretty great idea because as their website says: 'things etched in stone last forever.'
I was super excited when they offered me a free printed tile--of course I chose to have Lyla's face on it!  It's an awesome commemorative piece with her name and birthdate as well.


We currently have it displayed on a bureau in our dining room, but it also has hardware on the back that makes it possible to hang on a wall (but like I said...we kind of have all our walls covered already!).  I really love the antique feel that the tile has.  The photo is printed on the tile with soft edges--giving it a seamless look.  So pretty!

These tiles would make a lovely gift--  not only for a birth announcement but perhaps for a wedding?  an anniversary? What would you have printed on your tile?  


Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles is generously offering one of our readers a chance to have a personalized tile of their own!  If you follow our blog, simply click THIS LINK to the Sadie Ryan Keepsakes website and check it out!  Leave us a comment below telling us what ideas from the site you like best.

Last day to enter will be Saturday, March 12th  Wednesday, March 16th.  We will choose the winner by random number generator.  Good luck!

We just welcomed our first baby on February 17th so I would probably chose a newborn pic of her. I also like the idea of putting our family prayer on a stone and hanging it in our front entry.

Oh, I would def have my daughters newborn photo and birthdate printed on one! Also the print of her feet would be really cool too!

I would also put babies picture on it or even a picture of my grandpa who passed away recently with In Memory of him on it!

I love these! I really like the invitation tile idea, but I think if I won I would ask them to put one of my wedding photos on the tile with our wedding date printed beneath. Such a beautiful keepsake!

I think these are so beautiful. I would choose to do a tile of my kids when they were younger. They just grow up so fast.

Miranda said...

This is such a great way to display your pictures around your house. I am not a fan of putting holes in my walls so this is perfect for me!

Angie said...

How beautiful! I love the idea of the photo and announcement together. I think that they should offer family options too...like a family photo with the family's last name below and a date maybe???

My family friend recently had a wedding and I would probably have their wedding invitation printed on it :) We didn't get them a gift so it would be a great way to make up for it!

I would love to have a newborn photo of Logan (my son) with his name and birthdate. Such a cute keepsake!
