CLOSED: Handmade Feature/Giveaway: Kira Kids

We are super excited about this week's giveaway from a quirky and cute, Kira Kids--a shop featuring "hip, modern baby and kids clothes."  The designer/owner, Christine creates the most clever little onesies for your little guy or gal.
Meet Christine of Kira Kids:






What does your life outside of your work/business look like?



My family and I are extremely close. Without their influence and support Kira would not be possible. I also work full time in design and product development for a manufacturing company. This background definitely gave me insight into creating my own line.


Christine of Kira Kids


Describe yourself (or ask someone else to do it!) in three words.
Happy, Silly, Open-minded

Fall piece you can’t live without:
My black leather ankle boots - I could hitchhike across the country in those bad boys!

Most recent fashion-related purchase:
My coral one shoulder dress by American made label Audrey 3+1. Its super comfortable and I always get tons of compliments!

Christine's nephew and a friend
Do you craft/make anything else outside of what’s in your shop?
I love making stuffed toys for my cousin’s pup (a.k.a. Kira’s mascot), Peyton.

Any pet peeves?
The rainbow wheel (mac spinning wait cursor)....

Bad habits?
Texting while walking.

Desert-island food?

527 Cafe’s sweet potato fries with plum seasoning and Andy’s frozen custard!

Three bands/singers you can’t get enough of:
The Black Keys, Lauryn Hill and The Strokes are in constant rotation.

Another blog you follow regularly (link us!):
Oh and of course Kira’s blog www.kirakids.blogspot.com !

What made you decide to start a shop?
I started Kira when I met my first nephew Ethan. Spending time with him inspired me to follow my passion and create products that make kids happy.

Significance of your shop name?
Kira has a similar meaning in many languages (Latin, Japanese, Persian): “ray of sun”. This represents my line perfectly because kids light up our world!

Favorite item in your shop right now?
My favorite item in the store right now is the “Party Like a T-Rex” toddler tee. 


It’s inspired by the imagination of kids and their rebellion against reality. Who said a T-Rex can’t wear a top hat? ...maybe he’s going to a party! By blending different elements, I hope to inspire cleverness in kids and remind parents to nourish their children’s limitless creativity.






Christine is giving away one of her signature pieces to one lucky reader!  Winner will have the choice between:
