…with my MOH Cubbie!
You see, Cubbie and I went to the same college. Then school ended, and unfortunately Cubbie’s job took her back home to Florida. Obviously, this is not ideal. And no, not because of wedding planning; simply because I want my best friend back so we can bum around and watch HGTV!
But on the wedding front: I just have to say that even in our LDR, Cubbie has been everything I could have ever dreamed of in a MOH! Not only does she help with anything I ask of her, but she has even been gracious enough plan my bachelorette party long distance AND book a ticket to be in attendance! (Something I was definitely NOT expecting of her!)
Personal photo / MOH Cubbie is also known as my twin. We are exactly the same, hence why poor Mr. Otter sometimes feels overwhelmed when we are together.
Now, you may be wondering, while Cubbie is obviously great, why am I talking about her today? Well, I talked about my failed DIY, and then about my plans to (potentially) DIY my table numbers, but I never really specified how I was going to go from slow mo to fashion glow* or from fail to something wedding-worthy. Well today I’m sharing my secret DIY/decision-making weapon— Cubbie!
MOH Cubbie is by far the craftiest person that I have ever met. She also is…how do I phrase this…an ambitious crafter, if you will. One craft day in particular comes to mind in which she used a very, very dull saw in order to make a jewelry hanger. That same day, when I was trying to craft a glitter chevron pattern onto a letter, she told me I was doing it all wrong and completely took over. (And trust me: I did NOT mind this takeover—my “pattern” was not going to be right, at all.)

So clearly, Cubbie is my secret weapon for a reason. She is crafty, and I am not. She will work on her projects until they are close to perfect, while I’m more likely to abandon them. And since she has enthusiastically expressed (that’s code for demanded!) that I am not to do anything with glitter without her help, I plan to stockpile my crafting supplies until February, when she is back in town.
Hive, if you’re… less than crafty, like myself, do you have a more crafty friend to help out with DIY projects?
