Give a Beautiful Personalized Gift from Nature's Notebook (#Review & #Giveaway)

I must say, when I signed on for this review I was a little unsure of what I was in for.  I contacted Courtney at Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle, as per her request to work with us here at Mommy’s Block Party, and sent the information that she requested of me.  She replied to me that “it would have starfish on it”, and though I almost hate to admit it, I really had no idea what that meant. That's okay, though, because sometimes a beautiful surprise is all anyone needs to brighten their day.

Now like I said, I had no idea what to expect, so when my very well padded & packaged envelope arrived from Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle, I was so excited to see what “our names in sand” would look like.  I honestly thought our names would be spelled out in sand like a name on rice kind of thing.  Well, I opened my package from Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle and found the most beautiful photograph of our names spelled out in sand, with beautiful ocean and sky in the background and of course starfish, just as described.   

Now I know this photo may look pretty here, but let me tell you the camera does not do it justice.  If you have never seen the California coastline in person, then seeing one of these beautiful Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle photos of it is second best.  I tried really hard with multiple cameras, lighting and positions and just couldn’t capture all of the beauty.

Letter of authenticity that comes with each Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle photo

Each Nature’s Notebook by Courtney Noelle photograph is custom made just for you and comes with a certificate of authenticity and is “sealed” and signed on the back of the photo.  “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.'
