Words in the Sand

Winner of this Giveaway is The Redhead Riter of Virginia ~ Congratulations!


"Sharing captured moments with friends and loved ones..."

Nature's Notebook was born of a spiritual connection to the ocean and its beaches... and Sally Lee by the Sea is excited to partner with them at OpenSky.

Meet artist, Courtney Noelle...the original artist for writing words in the sand. Drawn to the soft sandy edges of the sea, Courtney, 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 can inscribe anything you wish into the sandy beaches and turn them into a unique work of art that won't wash away.


Courtney began sharing her captured moments with friends and loved ones through gifts and cards. Soon, people were talking about these special snapshots, encouraging her to make these gifts available to anyone. Touched, and eager to share this passion with the world, Courtney began Nature's Notebook, the original online collection of photographs and cards using the seas' tranquility to express love and emotion.

Save the Date!

"I was so excited when I placed my "dreams come true order" for my husband. It was my gift to him for our ten year anniversary. What a unique and treasured gift. Thank you."

Anne - Colorado Springs, CO
