{12 Days of Giveaways} Day 8 : Candy Kirby Designs

Happy Friday!!

Hope everyone's had a great week so far. My family recently arrived in town to celebrate Christmas (we're not going back to Minnesota this year) and Jordan took the day off work yesterday, so we headed up to the mountains for some skiing and snowboarding and some quality time away. The mountains have always been my and Jordan's home away from home and hold a special place in our hearts: we fell in love on the mountain, we got engaged on the mountain, we got married on the mountain. We love getting away whenever we can, and it's been the most fun introducing Sydney to it all---and watching her learn to ski! This is her second 'season,' and she was so excited to get back on the slopes. She had a blast yesterday, which of course made our hearts burst (although I think she loved the chairlifts and gondola rides the best, lol).

I'm so grateful for a husband who loves the outdoors so much, and I'm so glad we're instilling a deep love for hiking, camping, skiing, etc. in our daughter---because let me tell you: she is a G I R L Y girl. Pink and purple are her favorite colors, she loves dance class and her tutus, she's obsessed with Disney princesses and their movies (and supporting role characters in said Disney princess movies), she already tries to put on lipgloss and makeup at every chance, and she's the biggest little mama ever. Like most little girls her age, she LOVES dolls and babies and 'playing mommy.' She loves the actual dolls, their accessories, feeding them, burping them, changing them---the whole nine yards.

I discovered Candy Kirby Designs (CKD) a while back and fell in love with the brand's bright, colorful and playful pieces. The owner Erin started her company soon after she had her twin baby girls and relaunched in 2013 after the birth of her son. Over time CKD expanded their line from leggings in fun prints to an assortment of products in over 45 prints---and dolls. Dolls! The most fun, colorful, feminine and adorable dolls. But best of all, the kind of toys that if left out doesn't look like Disney Junior threw up all over your living room. 😉

All CKD dolls are 18" tall, which surprises quite a bit of new customers when they first receive their dolls or see them in person, and they are extremely well made of organic cotton and polyester tulle. The dolls all have a name and a story, and they are the cutest, most fun dolls we own. Sydney loves playing with them and loves matching her own outfit with their outfits. She has tea parties with them, she sings them songs, she puts them down for naps---she even puts them in time out when they've 'been bad,' lol.

As mentioned before, Candy Kirby Designs has plenty more than just dolls. Erin has created an incredible company full of amazing baby/kid items, including blankets and quilts, apparel (pants, shirts, beanies and bloomers), crib sheets, knotted baby gowns, pillow covers and even her own art prints. All pieces of hers are high-quality, equally adorable and really versatile.
