Giveaway – Nature’s Notebook

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Pin It Share 0 Google+ 0 0 Flares ×

Nature’s Notebook was born of a spiritual connection to the ocean and its beaches. Drawn to the soft sandy edges of the sea, artist Courtney Noelle has always felt inclined to inscribe words or names, thoughts or dreams into the ever-changing landscape of the beach. Something about its tumultuous fate, an uncertainty that parallels our own lives, makes sea sand the perfect tablet for expression.

And what better way to capture that expression, the memory and the magic of the beach forever, than in a photograph.

Courtney Noelle began sharing these captured moments with friends and loved ones through gifts and cards. Soon, people were talking about these special snapshots, encouraging Courtney Noelle to make these gifts available to anyone. Touched, and eager to share this passion with the world, Courtney Noelle began Nature’s Notebook, an online collection of photographs and cards using the seas’ tranquility to express love and emotion. “

A photograph from Nature’s Notebook makes such an AMAZING GIFT!  Do you know someone who is celebrating a special event in their life?

Engagement or Wedding?


New baby?


Because Courtney herself writes your special message on the sandy beach and captures it in a photo, it is the perfect gift for any personal occasion.  I am just blown away but the possibilities!  This is just too cool!  Housewarming, Christmas, Graduation, Birthday, Anniversary…..

Courtney sent me these amazing photos to celebrate the adoption of our daughter!  They say “Welcome Home” and “2006”  Isn’t this too perfect for someone you know who is completing an international adoption or celebrating the anniversary of an adoption?  Can you tell, I am so excited about Nature’s Notebook?!

A friend of mine recently lost a child and there is a beautiful, beautiful photo option that says, “In Loving Memory of….”.

Courtney also includes a certificate of authenticity that says, “These words were written just for you on the sandy beaches of Southern California by artist, Courtney Noelle.  The image was captured in all of nature’s beauty in a lasting photograph that will not wash away!  Please Enjoy!”

A lucky reader will win their own beach photograph from Courtney Noelle!

    I would love to have it say Don (heart) Teri. I would give this to my hubby. When we married it was very small and personal. We did not exchange gifts or go on a honeymoon. After 7 years we are still going strong and this would be an excellent reminder of that wonderful day.
