Milson Road - The Daily Portrait Review and Giveaway


I am so honored to be able to share something truly beautiful with you. I was recently introduced to a company, Milson Road, that creates The Daily Portraits. What is a Daily Portrait you ask?

The Daily Portrait™ — a PERSONALIZED, COMMEMORATIVE, FRAMED PRINT that captures and celebrates a milestone or special occasion within the context of the news of the day. A one-of-a-kind gift that only gets better with time…

I was given the amazing opportunity to review The Daily Portrait. I decided that the date I wanted to capture forever was my daughter's birth date. The process of creating it online was so simple. They walk you through inputting all the important information (date, weight, height, time of birth, etc.), upload a photo, and then walk you through choosing your colors for the mat and the frame. I was done in just a few minutes.  Then you receive a proof in your e-mail to check it over and make sure all the personal information is correct. Once you approve it all you have to do is try and wait patiently until it arrives.

The day I found the large box on my front step my entire body got excited. This is one of the items that is so personal and means so much. I anxiously opened the box and found the frame packaged with great care. I unraveled lots of bubble wrap that ensured the safe arrival of my frame. And under all that bubble wrap was... pure perfection.
My photo does not do it justice!
My Daily Portrait is beautiful. The top of the page has a beautiful picture of my daughter as soon as she was born and all the important information about that day. The rest of the page is filled with all the news worthy events from that day. What was happening in sports, the stock market, her astrology information. And then a little note at the top that says this was created for my daughter from her mom and dad. This is something that I will treasure forever, or until I have to hand it over to my daughter for her to keep and treasure.

Looking at this portrait makes me smile and cry at the same time. I could not be happier with it! This is absolutely something I will have done for every child we have. It's priceless. I have it hanging proudly in the hallway and have gotten so many compliments on it.

And now here is the really exciting news! Milson Road is offering a giveaway!!  You could have a Daily Portrait created for a special date in your life... a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation, a new baby gift!
