      I am loving the idea of the holes in the tops of the 2x4 to add suckers, cake pops, etc. Somehow I never noticed that until now and it's darling! Especially as the idea for birthday party favors.

      Please help! This summer I am planning a lemonade stand fund raiser. I want to make make cake pops in sugar cones. I am going to use cone shaped treat bags to package them...but I need a CUTE way to display them.

      Being a new grandma I like the "we love grandma". Also like the idea of adding baby's name and stats to a couple blocks tied with ribbon for the nursery.

      Ok seriously I love all your 2x4 ideas! so what do i do? Miss.wantabe crafty gal go to lowes get a 2x4, ask the guy to cut it for me, mind you he was rude and acted like I was asking him for his last breathe, so that really made me mad, because I was so pumped about making these, and so when he finally 30 minutes later came back with my cuts, laughing it up with his buddy I played a very dirty trick and said on second thought I need 1 more board cut, & thank you I will be back in what 30 mins ? (since that was how long it took him last time) and the guy that was with him said no it will only take 5 mins. or so I was like really? so I turned to the rude guy and said I hope you knew how to do it I am so sorry if i knew it would take you so long I could of asked someone else, turned back to the other guy (which I realized was a manager by his name tag) & said on second thought I think I will wait and see how these work. Now normally I am not so "mean" I guess is the only word but I was soooo very excited to make these and after standing and waiting 30 mins. with 2 kids who didn't want to come w/me to begin with my thrill of crafting was gone. but I got it back and came home and made a few but I have to say your's are sooo much cuter!!! ;) thanks for all your great ideas!

      Hmm... Loving the 'Family' one, but we are also looking for reusable birthday decorations to not only help the environment, but our own consumerism, but to create traditions the boys will remember. Something that will make us all feel special on our special day - there may not be hoards of presents, but there will be attention, appreciation and love :)
      I made the snowman ones for Christmas for the teachers :)

      My dad made a cute finger puppet holder out of a 2x4, there are 3 rows of dowels glued into it at graded lengths. Super cute!

      I love the teacher 2x4 idea. I have been racking my brain trying to come up with something that I can make for my children's teachers for an end of year gift. This fits perfectly. I am so glad my friend recommended your site!

      I LOVE the 2x4 idea with the "chore sticks"...it's eye-pleasing and functional all at the same time! AND...the chores can be moved around quickly and easily to change up responsibilities without hassle! I can't wait to try it =)
