customized name plaques

A few years ago, a sweet friend of mine Aliesha, her mother Valerie, gifted me with one of the most precious gifts. She custom made me name matted prints, framed with my boys names in them. At the time she created them for my 1st three children. I loved them! I told her if we ever had any more kids she would have to make us more.

A few weeks before Reed was born, she sent me another….

I loved seeing my baby’s name on the print… knowing that in a few short weeks I would be meeting him. It was a precious gift to get before he was born. I cannot wait to move into our new home and set up a wall with all my boys photographs framed and these prints proudly shining.

I love the effort she puts into making them but also how personal they are to us. With our prints I never even gave her scripture… she found pieces of scripture though that just went perfect with the meanings of each one of my boys names. I loved that!

    I would love an aqua or evergreen mat!

  2. Lindsey L says:

    I would love the yellow and grey mat! We chose the name Isabella for our daughter…I knew I had wanted to name one of my girls that(and another Rachael..I love older names!) since I was about 16. I loved that its an older sounding elegant name.

  3. Irene Imboden says:

    I would love something pink. My daughter’s first name was the name of one of my high school students. Her middle name, Janelle, was the name of my dear friend from high school. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor during our junior year of high school and died a few months after we graduated. I felt so blessed to pass her name on as a tribute. I remember her every day.

    You don’t need to enter me in the drawing because I’m already blessed to have a name print made by Valerie for each of my children. But I had to chime in to say that the work she does is so lovely and meaningful, and she is really a jewel. :) If I ever have another baby, I would definitely like to have a Valerie-made name print for him or her! :)

    thank you

  13. emily l says:

    I would choose Blue. It’s my sons favorite color. My ex and I had a name all picked out if it was a girl, and we were just dumbfounded when we found out our little guy was going to be a guy. lol. We fought and fought, and this was literally the ONLY name we agreed on. (Andrew)

  14. These are so great! LOVE them! I would probably choose…white or black? Not sure! We chose my first daughter’s name Kaelin Elise, because it meant girl consecrated to God. :)

    Oh these are so precious! I would love one for Carters room! I would pick the Blackberry Topping (Navy)!
