What I've been up to...

Well, Daddy Cubed and I threw the Rowdy Bunch into the Rowdy Mobile for 600 miles of terror another fun road trip. 
 Back to Colorado we went.  This time for Auntie's wedding!

Before leaving, I made close to 600 pizzelles (an Italian cookie that Meg and I grew up eating) for her favor bags.  Daddy Cubed, who loves me enough to package 400 of said cookies but NOT ONE MORE, was busy filling bags while I was running the pizzelle iron.  

Her wedding was gorgeous!  And so was my baby sister!
The New Mr. & Mrs.

That's about the only picture I have right now.  Our camera died right before the ceremony started, which is really sad, because the Munchkin and Gus-Gus were Ring Bearers and were cuter than cute.  Well, the Munchkin was a Ring Bearer.. Gus-Gus was sick and wasn't having anything to do with walking down the aisle. 

But I also made some of the cutest baby blocks ever!

2/3 of the Rowdy Bunch are slightly miffed that I didn't make any for the other 1/3.  But the Peanut's are coming!  I just hope I can get a spare minute to make him some before he goes to college he gets much older!

Our road trip home was even more fun than the trip down there.  All 3 of the kids were sick, and 2 of them decided it would be fun to see if Mama & Daddy could withstand 200 miles of whining and crying.  Seriously.

Apron in the breeze

So Friday was the monthly "Friday Night Sew-In" over at Bobbi Jo and Heidi's blogs... even though Bobbi Jo is doing this month's solo!

Here's what I was able to get done!  And sorry for the not-so-great picture.  But I live in Wyoming, and if you haven't heard... Wyoming is WINDY!  And really, I should just be happy it wasn't snowing.  Seriously. 

This is a present for a friend's mother-in-law.  I love the solid black on it.  It really makes the apron!

Some Exciting News!!!

So usually when something really exciting happens, it's all I can do to shout it from the rooftops.  Usually.

I was contacted by Melissa of Jason Kelly Photography awhile ago about carrying Mama Cubed Creations in her boutique in Kingston, Ontario. I am pretty sure I was jumping up and down screaming my head off.  I was beyond excited.  The Rowdy Bunch all thought it was pretty funny neat, too.

Their Grand Opening is on Saturday the 19th!  And I would love to be there... I think maybe someone needs to get a passport.... what do you think???

If you haven't already, check out my Facebook Fan Page.  You can also visit Jason Kelly Photography's Facebook Fan Page.

And aren't you proud of me for keeping my big mouth shut until I knew it was a done deal??? 
I know I am! hee hee

Showing off...

because I can.  And it's fun to share my completed projects with you guys! :)

This was a custom order for a good friend of mine.  Shauna owns Shauna's Bowtique, and makes some of the cutest hairbows I've seen.  So cute it almost makes Daddy Cubed and I want to try for a girl.  Almost.

Anyway, this is her Chloe Bag!

I can't wait until she gets it! And either can she!

Awesome Scentsy Giveaway!!!

So awhile back, I found this blog...Sniffaway.  Wendy is a Scentsy consultant.  She happened to be doing a giveaway, and I happened to win one of her prizes (a Beach scented travel tin that has made the Rowdy Mobile smell divine!).  Well now, she's teamed up with Heather at Airplanes and Dragonflies to giveaway a warmer and a candle bar!

Wouldn't that be festive for 4th of July?  I love it!  

If you head over to Airplanes and Dragonflies between now and the 18th, you can enter to win it, too!

And if you just can't wait until the 18th to get your own, visit to order from Wendy right now!

Good luck!

The coolest cake... possibly ever

So the last week has been a trip jam packed with madness bit of a whirlwind.  Daddy Cubed and I took the Rowdy Bunch home to Colorado for my little brother's high school graduation.  He was my last hold-out on really having to be an adult, but that's a whole nother post.  Anyhow, when planning his graduation party, my sister and I tried to figure out what he wanted.  My conversation with him went like this....

Me: "What do you want at your graduation party?"

Him: "I don't care."

Me: "No, not good enough.  What do you want?"

Him:  "A keg."

Me: "A cake?"

Him:  "No, a KEG."

Me:  "Ha ha.  Nice try. Anything else?"

Him: "I don't care."

So, I gave him what he wanted.  A keg.  Maybe next time he'll be a little more specific.

I freaking LOVE how this turned out!  

The Grad and his cake.  Can't you just see how thrilled he is to be having his picture taken?  But, he did text the pictures of the cake to his buddies, which is the true mark of coolness to a 19 year old.
