Holder

“The Ex” Penholder

by Jamie Sanford on September 3, 2010

I really don’t believe in taking anything too seriously, because life is too short. Therefore, I think this item is really funny.

This is “the ex.” He/she (however you want to see it) holds pens for you.

Seriously, the amount of fun you can have with this pen holder should be illegal. Stab your pens through your “favorite” person for stress relief, use it as a very offbeat and disturbing conversation piece, or just have it on your desk to hold your pens. Be as boring or as homicidal as you like.

The Ex is available for $39.99 from ThinkGeek.

Owl iPad Sleeve!

by Jamie Sanford on August 9, 2010

I don’t have an iPad and don’t plan on getting one anytime soon.  However, owl item, hello.


This iPad sleeve is made with 3mm designer felt (100% wool). The flap is attached with a metal button. Details are made with 100% wool felt. The sparkles in the eyes are added by Swarovski rhinestones. There is a useful pocket at the front of the sleeve to carry your iPad accessories.

I kind of want to use this as a quirky bag for when I need a crossbody bag for going out and just carrying a few things.  It’s available from etsy seller Boutique ID for $62.

Keep Your “Cordies” in a Single Spot

by Jamie Sanford on February 7, 2010

I am excited about today’s item, something else I am now going to have to purchase for myself. I know that many of us have a big mess of cords and wires in multiples areas of our homes, so this is a great solution.

Cordies are weighted rubber, designed to sit on your desk and hold on to the many cords that are coming out of a power strip or the computer to attach your iPod, cell phone, camera, etc.  I have experienced cord loss many times, the end result being myself or my husband digging in a mess of cords on the floor trying to get everything disentangled.

Cordies are available for pre-order for $12.99 each.  They are scheduled to ship in late March.
