Nature's Notebook Review & Giveaway CLOSED

“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.”

I can’t think of a more beautiful place to be than the beach. I live about 3 hours from the beaches here in North Carolina, so we take long weekend trips to different beaches quite frequently.

When I came across Nature’s Notebook, created by Courtney Noelle, I fell in love with her work. It is such a simple, yet amazingly beautiful idea. Write messages in the sand and photograph them. I received a gorgeous 8x10 black and white print of Cooper’s name written in the sand for review purposes (not pictured because I lost my camera :( Sorry!).

I absolutely love it! Cooper was very excited to see his name and the waves at the beach all in the same picture! I framed the photo and hung it in his room so that he could look at it every day. I love to look at it too. It is just so peaceful. Plus, it was taken on a beach in Southern California, which is somewhere that we have never been, so that makes it even more special!
Nature's Notebook also has a wide variety of other messages that can be written in the sand. I love the Save The Date photo pictured below! How unique!

BUY IT! You can purchase your own Nature’s Notebook print at http://www.naturesnotebook.com/ .
