I’m speechless. Almost. These are amazing. I only wish this Etsy shop had more so I could by one!
Also, I love how they tell you that if you don’t know a seamstress (pick me!) They would make great note holders on a desk. So very true.

DIY Cork Pencil Holder and Organizer : Curbly | DIY Design Community
Stacked cork trivets (Available at IKEA and Amazon) make a great pen/pencil holder that works as a memo station too. This works for me as I never seem to have enough Post-It notes, but I always have pretty little push ins about.

Keep power bars off the floor and out of dust bunny hands with this idea.  A couple screw hooks and a basket an voila! no more furballs around the power bar.

Rubber-Band Bulletin Board - Martha Stewart 
This is really quite clever and could be adapted with anything that is approx. one foot square(ish). Like a ceramic floor tile or an old piece of wood or even a round flat plate you have lying around. Add a hanger to the back and bam! you have yourself a bulletin board.

Wooden tape dispenser. I posted a DIY version of this back in March, and it was/is just as wonderful but in a different way. I like this one because well, I like just about anything well designed and made of wood. There I said it, now I am going to stop there because the double entendres coming to mind are terrible. Also, this totally has DIY potential.
*Note, I found this photo randomly, I am not sure where to purchase it as the link is old and broken.

diy project: twig push-pins and wall hooks | Design*Sponge
These are so cute they just might be worth the effort. The instructions are super simple, I just know that the hammer and pins part would not go smoothly for me. I do love how they show you to do tacks for bulletin boards and nails for wall hooks.
