With Earth Day approaching, I thought it’d be fun to have a giveaway containing eco-friendly items. Lately, I’ve been enamored of the idea of plantable paper, or seed paper. Seed paper isn’t a new idea, but rarely do I come across such beautifully designed and nicely packaged seed paper. Enter Botanical PaperWorks. They’re in the business of making the world a beautiful place through producing handsomely designed plantable paper and stationery for various occasions including weddings, holidays, milestone celebrations, and more.

Apples & Oats Photography + A Giveaway {CLOSED}

White Beauty 8×10 fine art print by Jenn Meyers of Apples & Oats Photography

One of my all-time favorite songs is a cover by The Sundays of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses“. There’s something so eerily beautiful about the lead singer’s voice and the song itself is just soothing to listen to — perfect for light, ambient music while I blog or design a website.

If you’re a fan of wild or domesticated horses, you’re in for a treat. Today, Jenn Meyers of Apples & Oats photography is offering one Dearest Nature reader two 8×10 photos, valued at a total of $50 from her shop! Hailing from Logan, Utah, Jenn specializes in equine photography and captures “strength,beauty, spirit, grace, adventure, love, joy, and freedom” in all of her images.

Check out a few of my favorites from Jenn’s shop and for full giveaway details, see below:giveaway from Apples & Oats Photography

Greetings fellow nature lovers. I’m Donaville and some of you might know me from Discover Paper, a site that’s devoted to finding and sharing paper inspiration. Say hello to Dearest Nature, Discover Paper’s fraternal twin if you will, a site and soon-to-be magazine dedicated to sharing something near and dear to my heart: nature.

What can you expect to see on Dearest Nature? I, along with my team of creative cohorts, will be sharing a slew of products, art, photography, design, recipes, DIYs and more, all of which are inspired by nature. Have a look around and get to know myself and our contributors on our About page. Want to see your work grace the pages of our site? Learn how to submit your work.

The idea behind Dearest Nature was conceived about five years ago after I graduated college and was employed by a web design firm whose clients were comprised of niche publications. I had a dream of creating my own niche publication someday and that day is finally seeing fruition today.

Having Liam Neeson usher in Dearest Nature’s arrival in the same manner as Zeus releasing the Kracken in Clash of the Titans was also part of my dream, but alas he was booked today.

Instead of Liam Neeson, how about a giveaway to celebrate our launch? We’re offering not one, but two nature-loving winners oodles of nature-inspired goods from various stores:
