6 cool travel tools and finds.

I am one of those people who gets inspired from bits and pieces. Pages torn out of magazines, random small objects, ribbon, little jars…

As you can imagine, my desk is kind of a mess. The desktop of my computer is similarly cluttered. But I just think better when I am surrounded by interesting things. I’ve got a folder on my desktop where I keep virtual clippings of cool stuff. I was going through it tonight and thought I would share a few.

Just an assortment of things I think are neat…

Quadropod + Clamp.

Have you seen this? Such a cool idea.

It’s a tripod-mount-like accessory that resembles the human body with an unlimited number of positions and holding options. It can accommodate various devices like smartphones, tablets, cameras, or camcorders.

Around The World desk calendar

I know the year is a third of the way over (yikes! really?), but this calendar by Rifle Paper Company is so fabulous. I am distracted and captivated by it all day long.

Vapur Foldable Water Bottle

I wrote about these a month ago and they’ve been in heavy rotation ever since. My 8 year-old tosses his in his backpack for basketball practice, my 10 year-old has hers on her desk at school, and I have one in my bag. (I think Josh lost his).

They haven’t leaked yet!

      anita – I am also in the market for that bag. I’ve had my eye on it for about a year but I haven’t snagged it yet. I’ve got a little bag obsession so I’m trying to rein it in a little. Not sure how long I can hold out, though. 😉

  2. I want that coach bag!! I could actually use one of those little clamps too.

    P.S. We’re not 1/3 into the year yet 🙂 just under 1/4th (come end of month)

      Rebecca – Right! A fourth of the year! That’s what I get for writing posts late at night 😉
