Bride World!

Wow, wedding season has arrived! I am busier than ever going to beach writing in the sand, and making unique wedding gifts for all my customers. The most popular names in the sand seem to be two lovers names written in the beach with a heart in the middle. This is our classic and timeless unique wedding gift!

I love it when my customers ask for custom style, or have an idea that they would like me to write in the sand. It makes the creative process fun, and the end product is a unique one of a kind gift from the heart.

Allison recently asked me to write her wedding date in the sand, with starfish instead of the "-" dash between the date, and to put and I and a U one each side of the heart. The end result was just lovely! Thanks Allison!


Tomorrow is Bride World show in Costa Mesa, CA! I am excited to attend, and meet with brides in person!

Have a blessed day and keep livin' the dream!

Love,

The blog Make-Over,

Hello everyone! I just had Tonya from LuckyGirlDesignStudio make over my blog! Didn't she do a wonderful job? I think so, I am more than pleased with it:) I would love to hear your thoughts.

She also just re-did my website,
www.naturesnotebook.com.
You can now order a personalized beach writing photograph on my blog, website, and even etsy!

It has been a couple of hard weeks for me between work, life and family. Sadly, my Uncle passed away a few weeks ago from a pulmonary fibrosis.

So this is post is dedicated to Uncle Ron. I was inspired to write his name in the sand to remember him always. He left a wonderful impression on our hearts and lives. It seemed so appropriate to write his name in the beach sand and capture his memory so it won't wash away.
For the next two months, I will be honoring Uncle Ron, by donating a portion of the proceeds to the American Lung Association in his name.

When the tides of life upset you, and the currents rock your boat, don't drown yourself in tears, lie on your back and float.♥



Much Love to everyone! Stay tuned for more writing in the sand!

Well my Esty shop is coming together. One step at a time. I am really new to the world of Etsy. I have been writing in the sand and creating these gifts for over 8 years! I started off with my website several years ago! It has truly been fun watching the different changes and seeing the business unfold. Please feel free to visit my Etsy shop. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

Today, at the beach I saw dolphins and captured them in a few customers photos! I am so inspired by the beautiful world that God has created. I am honored to capture and share as a professional artist with my customers!

Have a beautiful Day!

Etsy Holiday Boot Camp! Courtney Noelle Takes the Plunge!

I, Courtney Noelle of Nature's Notebook, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!
