Nature's Notebook {giveaway}



Nature's Notebook
by ~ Courtney Noelle


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, and 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.



Nature's Notebook is stunning! I have always been drawn to the power and beauty of the ocean. I have been fortunate to visit the ocean on a couple of occasions. However, living in Ontario trips to the ocean are few and far between.

Nature's Notebook uses the beauty of the Pacific ocean off the coast of California to create keepsakes that will be treasured a lifetime. Thank you to Nature's Notebook for offering to send me a couple of photos so I could see first hand the moving works of art which Courtney produces. Courtney photographs the ocean pounding onto the beach with your choice of name or saying printed in the sand.

Nature's Notebook makes a perfect gift for any occasion life presents. I especially like the idea for weddings, babies and sympathy. I love that these gorgeous photographs capture the moment and emotion of the ocean. The ocean is raw beauty and power, and Courtney Noelle gets it perfect in every shot.


Nature's Notebook photographs are of the highest quality. The pictures are glossy and crystal clear. Each photograph will arrive signed, dated and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Nature's Notebook photograph is something which you will cherish and proudly display in your home...something to be enjoyed everyday throughout the years.

Think of a special occasion in life...and you have the perfect keepsake gift from Nature's Notebook!
