imageI love finding unique gifts for friends and family that are heartfelt and very personal for the holidays.  I have been known to give homemade candy wrapped up in hand painted Christmas boxes, handmade ornaments, and personalized photo collages as gifts.  I seem to have a difficult time finding unique and personal gifts for those I love most if they are not handmade by me, but that was before I discovered Nature’s Notebook!

I was recently introduced to Nature’s Notebook and was so glad that I was.  Nature’s Notebook was the brainchild of artist of Courtney Noelle and is at its simplest described as personalized beach writing photographs, but Nature’s Notebook is so much more.  image

From the Nature’s Notebook website:

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.

Now I don’t know about you, but in my opinion you can’t much more unique and personal than handwritten love notes in the sand.  Of course, Nature’s Notebook offers an array of different styles and options as well as occasions so that you can find the perfect gift for any occasion!  How romantic would it be to give your husband a framed photograph of your wedding date inside a heart handwritten on a beautiful beach for your anniversary?  Or maybe you prefer to give your wife framed photographs of your children’s names beautifully written on a sunny, gorgeous beach this Christmas?  The possibilities are nearly endless with Nature’s Notebook!image

I received a photograph of Allison (hearts) Jamie from Nature’s Notebook for my review.  I originally planned to give it to my hubby for our anniversary in March, but decided it would make a great Christmas gift as well.  I really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect picture with such a gorgeous backdrop as the flawless beach with the ocean and crashing waves in the background…it really is just beyond words! 

Nature’s Notebook is the perfect gift for everyone on your list no matter the occasion!  Make sure you check out Nature's Notebook and lots of other great gift ideas in MIBR 2010 Holiday Gift Guide!

3 Extra Entries Each!

***Clarification!!!  It was brought to my attention that this part of the Extra Entry options is a bit confusing so I want to clear up any doubt.  For Tweeting (which you can do daily, up to 3 times) you get 3 extra entries each time you Tweet.  So if you Tweet tomorrow only once that is 3 extra entries…or if you Tweet tomorrow all three times that is 9 extra entries. 


For Facebook you can only share once daily, but that one time is worth 3 extra entries as well.  I hope I made it a little easier to understand…if you still have questions please feel free to email me @ a_proffitt79(at)yahoo(dot)com!***
