Cubes&Crayons developed out of one mom's frustration as she tried to have her cake and eat it, too.
By 8:00 am on Monday morning, I have gone for a run, handled two dozen messages and reviewed the financial statements for Cubes&Crayons, all as while refereeing my two girls at breakfast. Before Cubes&Crayons I was a professional ready to go back to my job full time. Then my first daughter was born, and suddenly, I was in love. She was the most beautiful creature and I literally could barely put her down for the first month of her life. It was then that I first thought of Cubes&Crayons as a solution to my goal to have a creative work community with a fun and educational place for children.
Fast forward two years with many late nights and early mornings trying to scrunch work into time slots when I wasn't with my daughter and I was pregnant again. As a mom working out of my home, I found myself lacking both the professional community to work in. Before Cubes&Crayons, I was literally juggiling singing lullabies and sending email and neither my daughters were happy nor was I. There had to be a better solution. And so, armed with a gut feeling, months of research, and two mini-me “helpers” of my own, I launched Cubes&Crayons, a space for kids and parents to develop side-by-side. Look out, Corporate America. New moms are ready to head on up the corporate ladder…with tots in tow.
It's been a joy to build and I continue to grow as mom, entrepreneur and career gal looking for new solutions to life issues. In addition to loving Cubes&Crayons and my children, I enjoy running, cooking, hiking, yoga, traveling, and reading, and ultimately finding that balance.
