Cord keeper!

If you are anything like most of us, you probably have a few cords on your desk!   A USB or some sort of phone charger, speaker wires, ect..     I had a USB for my phone plugged into the back of my computer and draped up to my desk for the longest time.  Every time I unplugged my phone, it would drop back onto the ground.  Let me tell you, that got irritating really fast.  Although I am a little more flexible for having to move around and contort myself to reach behind my computer! *I dub it USB yoga!*

One day while browsing around on Thingiverse for cool designs, I stumbled across this cord keeper.  There were a couple of files with it.  One has screw holes so you can mount it to your desk or wherever it is that you put it and one does not.  I printed both and settled with the one that didn’t have the screw holes because I didn’t want to leave marks all over the desk should I decide to move it around.  I attached it with command adhesive strips so that it could be moved without damaging my desk.  However, if this were in a place that you wanted it to stay permanently, the screw holes would be handy!

Bored frog.. or maybe he is just contemplating life!

Look at this cute little guy!! The files from Thingiverse say this frog is bored, or is he perhaps just contemplating his filament or which 3D printer he came from?!  Okay, I’m probably over thinking it.  It is made out of Inova 1800 filament.
