City of Dionne: review and giveaway


As some of you probably know I'm originally from Belgium and am the only one in the family that's moved to another country.
As a result I only have contact with my family via phone, email, facebook and Skype. This is particularly hard around the holidays but each year it gets a little easier. Well, at least that's what I'm telling myself.
My next review is for an etsy store called City of Dionne.
This little store is full of treasures: arts, crafts and very unique gifts!


I received a beautiful stitch print from City of Dionne to review. It's called "true friends will always be connected".
I miss my brothers and sister and when I found out about City of Dionne and the chance to review her stitch print, I couldn't help but think about my sister. She loves this kind of art and every time I look at it, I think of her.

The stitch print has been illustrated, designed, stitched and printed by Dionne herself. I LOVE the color combinations and the connection of the phone and the coffee on this particular print is so suited for my sister and me, as we both love to drink coffee and chat on the phone a lot. (I know us girls and phones!)

Of course Dionne has a lot more art in her store. Here are some of my favorites.

I love the note card set on the left called "With All My Love".
It's a pack of 4 note cards with square flap envelopes. I just love the designs on them!

Or how unbelievable are these pillow boxes (on the right) that are ideal for party favors or a shower?
Again all boxes are designed , illustrated and printed by Dionne so if you want a certain color scheme, you just need to ask and Dionne will work with you.

Are you looking for some original and beautiful wedding note cards? Look no further... have a look below!

Now in addition to this Dionne has a super cool blog called Notes from Dionne, I LOVE her photography and I have to ask her for the recipe of the Tiramisu cupcakes, they look amazing!!!!


Well enough said. I'm super excited to tell you all that Dionne has very generously offered to give away a stitch print to 1 of my readers! (reader's choice)
For a chance to win, head on over to City of Dionne, look through the stitch prints and let me know which one you would pick and why (how the print relates to you). This is a required entry before you can do any of the other ones.

I love to bake for gifts. Don't get me wrong I love to eat them too. but the smile it brings to a friends face when you make their day better by a little sweetness makes all the effort worth it. I love that stitch print
