Mompreneur Sandi Silver of Cubby Cubes - logo

CubbyCubes was born to help the kids find their items in their cubbies and eliminate what happens after they grab the bottom shirt from the pile and everything else topples over. As parents, when we take the time carefully label, fold and ever so carefully place the well-marked and clean items into their duffel bags.  Along come the trucks to cart the bags away and from there we really never know happens to the items we spent several weeks organizing. Items get stacked onto shelves and immediately fall upon the floor or get tucked away in a far corner of shelf not to be seen until it is time to repack the duffel bags to go home. After witnessing our own children’s cubbies for several years, we knew there had to be a simpler way to keep things organized. This led to the birth of CubbyCubes.


mompreneur Bobbi Wright, author of The Princess and the Whale, Blue Whale Moon Publishing

Bobbi M Wright has recently released her first children’s book “The Princess and The Whale” in December 2016. Originally written 12 years ago for her daughter to help her heal after having been bullied, the story was lost for 10 years only to reappear at a very poignant time. Princess Hannah is lost and feels alone and scared but after 4 characters come to her aid, a moment of bravery changes everything! The story is intended to help anyone who needs it to understand that bravery is a choice and we don’t have to listen to the little voices that tell us we are too big, too small, too much or not enough.
