give me a g! it's a give-away!

Okay, folks. I’ve been talking about this for weeks, and the day has finally come–your chance to win one of Kaye’s beautiful tiles! Personalized however in the whole wide world you want it! You can even get Steven Curtis Chapman’s family’s names on it! (but if I were you, I’d get your own)

Let me back up to I had admired these “Engraved Euniques” tiles for months as many of my favorite bloggers were raving about them. Then in early March-ish, I got an e-mail from a sweet gal named Kaye who had been commenting on my blog. She lived in TX and offered to let us stay at her house during our zoo trip. She also mentioned that she had a business and wanted to advertise on my blog.

Long story short, we chatted for quite awhile before I ever realized she was THE TILE LADY. I about peed my pants when I figured it out.

That was just the beginning of the surprises with Miss Kaye. First there was the post I wrote through tears about the helicopter and the doves and everything. Then we were back at Jack and Kaye’s. Then some fab pics of our families together.

I was so, so thankful God worked it out for us to make an unexpected return trip to Jack and Kaye’s on the way home. We got to chat more, Jack showed us Kaye’s fabulous shop where she lovingly churns out these tiles for everyone, we rode our first Segway, we got to see Mary Katherine again. It was such a special time.

I won’t embarrass Kaye by sharing every detail of how much they blessed us, but one blessing sticks out in my mind and heart. Kaye called me after we left their house the first time and said that Jack had been talking to Ava, and she told him how excited she was to go to Sea World and how she had $7 of her very own to spend there. Well, Mr. Jack didn’t think that $7 was nearly enough for a sweet little girl to take to Sea World. So he made Kaye call me and tell me to give each of the girls $20 for which I would be reimbursed. Totally melted my heart.

Anyway. THE TILES. They’re stunning. Amazing. Way better in person than in the pictures. So great that Lifeway Christian stores sells them now. How cool?! And you can get them personalized for any occasion you can imagine–new babies, teacher gifts, wedding presents, your kitchen, your bathroom–anything!

Kaye is generously giving away one personalized tile to one lucky winner! You may choose from her 6″x6″ tiles, her 8″x8″ tiles, or her 6″x”12″ tiles. They’re all fab! (and Gabe’s going to design her a new website soon to showcase her beautiful stuff even better!)

To be eligible to win, you must 1.) go to Kaye’s site and browse around and 2.) leave a comment telling me what you’d like on your tile if you win and 3.) you’ve got to have a U.S. mailing address.

Everybody got it? Sweet! Off you go! May the randomest person win! (I’ll draw the winner on Friday.) Happy Tuesday, all!

    OMG…these tiles are absolutely incredible!!! I could pick one from every page, but if I had to narrow it down it would definitely be the 6×12 Family Tile With Joshua 24:15.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity…what an incredibly gorgeous and gracious giveaway!

  2. Shelly

    Great giveaway! I love them all, but I’d probably choose one with our family name on it and a verse.

  3. Liz

    Alright… being that I’ll be probably…almost… the last one to respond I know I won’t be winning… but hey – fun to do anyways.

    When I first read this and saw that you were giving one of these away – I thought, “those are great, I like them, however, I don’t need one as much as someone else might.” However, this morning I was thinking that it would be great for friends of ours that are missionaries. I would have to say that I would go with the Family Tile with Joshua 24:15.
    Have a great Friday and enjoy the weekend!
    Aidan says Hi to Nina! 🙂

  4. Jamie Nygaard

    Does not follow directions. That is what my teachers always said….and guess what?!it’s stilltrue! AFTER looking at her tiles…I would say the “Joshua” one.

  5. Lynda

    Wow- they’re beautiful!! It would be so hard to choose just one! The coasters with all the Scripture verses, the baby keepsake tiles, “A Father’s Heart”, the “Cowgirl’s 10 Commandments”… gorgeous! I think that I’d probably have to go with the “Family Engraved Tile” or the “Married with Children”- love that they have all of our names on it! Definitely bookmarking her site for future gifts!!

  6. Amy

    I would have to chose the family tile with the verse from Joshua on it. What a great site.. I might have to buy some wedding gifts from it!

  7. Kristie Goulet

    I recently ordered one of Kaye’s tiles for a dear friend of mine who is moving away and I absolutely LOVE it. It is beautiful. I would love a family tile for my family or a tile with a special verse on it for a gift for some friends.

  8. Becky

    I love these tiles! I would pick a few verses in Phil. that have meant so much to me in the last few years.
    This is a great idea for Christmas gifts!

  9. Jennifer McIlwain

    I have read about and seen Kaye’s tiles on many blogs. I absolutely love them. I am a stay at home mom and pastor’s wife. We just had our third child and have completed our family. I would love to have the family tile with our names and a scripture on them. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful piece of art.

  10. Amy

    So beautiful! I would probably like the top selling tile with our family name and Joshua 24:15.

  11. Krista

    What a beautiful idea! I would like a 6×6 or 8×8… John 15:4-5 & 8-9 have become really important to me the last few months and I’d love to have it in stone. 🙂

  12. Barbara C

    I just love her tiles. I had one done for a friend that said Kristy Kitchen. My favorite is the one for newly married couples with the name and date and verse from Corinthians anbout Love.

  13. Sarah

    What beautiful tiles! If I won I would love to get the 6×12 personalized home time with Joshua 24:15 on it for a wedding present for a deal friend of mine who is getting married in November. I’d have it read “The Baxter’s Home” with the verse. If I don’t win – maybe I’ll just buy it anyway 🙂

  14. Diana

    I love her tiles – I ordered one last month and love it!! If I win, I would like the kitchen tile with my name on it.

  15. Karen

    What awesome work she does! I would love to win one for my sister with her name on it and a verse. Great giveaway! Thanks for being so joyful, Marla. Your website brightens my day and reminds me to trust in God and seek out ways to serve others. Thanks!

  16. Peter P

    I love the 6×12 engraved with the family names and ‘as for me and my house…”

    I have the PERFECT place to put it too!

  17. Jen L

    I’d love to win a tile like Baby Harper’s for Samantha! I also really like the 6×12 family tiles. And there are several scripture ones that I love. I might have to put a few of these on my Christmas wish list! 🙂

  18. Kelli

    I love the “kelly” tile and not just because that is my name! 🙂 And I would have LOVED to see all of you in action on the segway or whatever that thing is called!! 🙂

  19. Terry

    Awesome! The one that says, “I have found the one my heart loves” would make a good gift for my sweet hubby for our 30th anniversary coming up. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  20. Sarah

    Hi Marla! Hope all is well in Cbus! Kaye’s designs and tiles are so neat and would make such a neat decoration to any house! I think if I won or even had just a lil extra money I really like the wedding one with both names and 1 cor. 13 Faith Hope Love! Such a neat way to personalize a home.

  21. Conny

    Oh, I’ve seen these amazing tiles here & there in blogland! I love the family ones – and with expecting #3 (and last) baby the end of this year, that would be such a sign of family completion and blessing! I do love the fruit of the spirit kitchen one too – as my kitchen IS fruti-themed. The new baby ones are great too…well, THEY ALL ARE LOVELY!!!

  22. Kelly, Zoo Girl

    I love the one with the couple’s name and the date they were married. Not sure which verse I would use, but I’ll definitely have to get a family one when we’ve had kids!

  23. Holly V.

    Would love to have a family plaque like the one hanging in your house.

    THANKS for blessing all of us with your friends and their wonderful talents! It is so fun!!

  24. Donita

    Oh the pressure of choosing words to ENGRAVE in STONE! But they are so beautiful.
    Our family name plus all our first names…what if we have more kids??
    A verse…probably from Ephesians
    My husband is especially partial to Eph 5:22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.

  25. jess

    I’m sitting here seeing all of these entries & thinking there’s no way i’ll win, so i won’t even enter. BUT, if I don’t enter, i won’t even have a CHANCE, so at least this gives me a chance, right?!?

    but, then if i win, I have an even bigger problem because whatintheworld would i choose? so, maybe i shouldn’t even enter cuuuuuuuuz winning would be too much pressure.

    but, i think i still want to win. so, here i am.

    I think I’d get one & have her engrave one of the phrases I love from uppercase living that’s no longer available–something along the lines of,
    “I’d rather live in a tiny home with people I love than in a mansion all alone.” or “Lord, grant me patience as I deal with my blessings.” or “Bless our home as the children grow.” hmmmmmmmmm.

    good contest!
    (p.s. STILL waiting to hear back from my screen printer (i’m a little dissappointed about this), but soon as i get my shirts in, i’ll send a pic & you can do a give away for those. 🙂

  26. melissa

    i think i would like to have one with our family member’s names along with a favorite bible verse. thanks for the contest!

  27. Laura

    I love the “I prayed for a child…” tile. I can’t wait to order it for a couple in our church that are “trying”. What a special gift it will be. These are truly a very unique gift to give!!

  28. stacey

    thanks to megan t., i found you. thanks to you, i discovered kaye. (sadly, i missed your stop in our town recently!) through kaye, i found out we were neighbors! fun, huh?!! i would love a tile to give my in-laws as a christmas present this year. one that has all the family on it. just think, when i win it, i will save you the shipping! 🙂

  29. Jessica

    I’ve never seen these before. They are gorgeous! How on earth does she do this? Such talent! And she even has them in real stores!
    i like the ones with all of the family members’ names on them. I’d like one of those. And maybe this verse of part of it . . .
    Romans 10 14-15 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? how will they belive in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent?
    The Jesus Loves Me one is cute too. How on earth could someone decide?!

  30. Helen at A Work of Heart

    Wow Marla, what a great giveaway…they all look so cool…the one about throwing a fit is hysterical but I think for this time in my life I might pick one of the family tiles or perhaps Is. 41:10…it would be difficult to pick!

  31. jennikim

    those are beautiful! i was just thinking i would like something with the kid’s names on it- so maybe i would try to do something with those- or else i would get it as a gift for my SIL who is getting married in 6 weeks- with their names, wedding date, and verse. so many choices!!

    i need expecting. ok maybe need isn’t quite the right word, but since i have a justifiable excuse to get it right now, i think it’s time to splurge! where should i order it?

  32. Shannon

    My favorite would have to be the “Faith, Hope and Love” tile. I have many things with that scripture in my house. It would fit right in. Thanks for being so generous!

  33. deanna f.

    I too have been ‘stalking’ Kaye’s website for quite some time now. I would love to have one of everything!!!

    One of my favorites would have to be the family tile, but since we’re still working on our family (and little ones), for now I’d just like to have a tile with our last name with a verse.

    Thanks for the chance to win!!!!

  34. Carrie

    I like the one you pictured that says, “I prayed for this child…”. That verse is such a blessing. 🙂 I’d like to get a family one someday…but we’re not done having kids yet, so now is not the time. 🙂

  35. Serena

    I love your blog! I’ve been known to giggle quite often when reading it. 🙂

    On my tile, I’d want my life verse. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” -2 Corinthians 12:9

  36. Deanna

    The Family Tiles shown on the website are great… but I really love the “The Weaver Home” tile pictured on KK’s blog!

  37. Mary

    My favorite is the Wilson family one, with a scripture about the parents and their names and also the children’s names with the verse about how much joy it brings to know they are walking in His light! I love these special personalized decorations 🙂 Thanks Marla!

  38. Mary

    I love the birth announcement or the one that shows our names and when we were married. But I love them all!

  39. melissa

    Great giveaway! Ooh, I just can’t decide what I would have engraved…probably our family name and a favorite verse. Or maybe a gift? Tough decision 🙂

  40. Kelsie

    What a great giveaway – thanks Marla & Kaye! I would have to select their “Top Seller” – As for me and my house…I’ve always wanted something that has our name and year we were married. I’m sure I’ll order it even if I don’t win.

  41. Colleen

    I too, love those family tiles..with all the names of the kiddos and a verse! Marla, can I just tell you how not only inspiring you are, but the network of friends that you have acquired just makes my heart soooo happy…I doubt we’ll need “internet/blogs” in heaven, but the connections will still be sweet!!!

  42. Annie Luidhardt

    They are all so beautiful and awesome! Any would do but if I had to choose I would pick the Family engraved Tile with the Joshua verse on it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  43. Ali

    The real question is what tile do I not like. Wow, all of them are so amazing. And what about the engraved kids art on a tile? I love that idea – she is so creative.

  44. Lindsey

    I love the family engraved tile with “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    I can’t wait to see the site after Gabe redoes it!

  45. Kim

    Thanks Marla for the great giveaway. I would love the personalized home with scripture Joshua 24:15. What a constant reminder of what at times we forget. I love these tiles and have been wanted to purchase one for a while.

  46. Liz

    I have always admired these tiles but have had such a hard time choosing just one. I think I would go with the family tile and the Joshua 24:15 verse. That would go very well in my humble home.
    How fun to meet the tile lady and not even know it! Thank God for special friends!

  47. Gail

    Pick me! Pick me! I’ve been trolling her site for weeks now. I think her tiles are going to be my go-to wedding gift (with a copy of a book or two by one of my favorite authors tucked in beside). I wanted to get one for the last wedding we went to, but there was not time to get it accomplished. Maybe anniversary gifts? Hmmmm.

    I have a very U.S. mailing address. Unless you are disowning KY.
    I’d like a tile with our last name and some scripture on it. I just am having the hardest time deciding on just one!

  48. Krysten

    I liked the kitchen tile with the fruit of the spirit. I sometimes need a reminder to be patient in the kitchen.

  49. krisco

    wow! I love it when God brings us such special people. People that ooze His Spirit. The “married with children” tile on her page was neat. Good reminder that you were married (made a commitment to hubby dearest) BEFORE those little blessings came along. Maybe I’m the only one that needs to be re-reminded of that though. 😉

  50. Megan @ Hold it Up to the Light

    What an awesome giveaway! I have loved these tiles from the first time I saw them. I know that your hubby’s website design will make them shine even more!

    I love the family ones (like the Chapmans and the Smiths), but I don’t know what scripture I would use yet. My favorite “look” (as for font and coloring) is the Stellan tile. Love that one!

    As always, love reading your books and your blog. Thanks for sharing your life with us!

  51. Jenny L.

    I love the 6″x12″ family tiles with a verse!!! I noticed her ad on your blog a while back and had already browsed her tabs to see all the pictures. They are all beautiful!!!
    I think Gabe will do an awesome job on her site!!!

  52. ginger

    I’ve admired these tiles for quite some time. They are so lovely! I would love to have the {Grace To You 12″ x 6″ tile}. II Cor. 12:9 is a very special verse to me.
    I can’t wait to see the new website, either! 🙂
