 Defender of Hyrulelegend of zelda master sword pinshapeLife Size Legend of Zelda Master Sword by imprende

Growing up, one of my favorite games was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and I really wanted to be Link. With this awesome, multi-part Master Sword I can relive the days of protecting Gorons, travelling time and saving the Princess. I might even try chopping some grass to see if there really are Rupees in there. Epona, let’s go! (pulls out Ocarina of Time) C-up, C-left, C-right, C-up, C-left, C-right.

 Minimalisttreepod coat stand castomized pinshapeTreePod by Castomized

I’m a fan of minimalist furniture. The TreePod is a minimalist coat stand that you can build with three 20 x 20 mm strips of wood, plastic or steel, and the 3D printed pod.

I’ll make sure to print and build a TreePod this winter to hang my jackets and coats.

 Big Kid!maracas shaker pinshapeMaraca (Shaker Instrument) by Pikitote

I don’t hold up a beat very well, but I LOVE making sounds and having a silly fun time with instruments! These maracas would make awesome gifts for kids, or big kids 🙂 The low-poly design looks so modern and chic and Pedro softened the edges making the maracas soft to the touch. I also like the Youtube videos showing the maracas in action with the different fillings!

 Community Manager 
 Disney Fanatic

sky lantern pinshapeSky Lantern by mingshiuan

I love the idea of this. Since watching Disney’s Tangled, I think the scene that stuck with me most was the part where she’s in a boat, surrounded by these lanterns floating into the sky. The great thing about Shiuan’s lanterns is that you can fully customize them to say whatever you want 🙂 And they can be pocket size like the keychains she made!


allen's face Allen’s Pick

 Digital Marketing Director 
 Sculpture Reflectionist of Highest Browreading yourself sculpture pinshapeReading Yourself by Andy Bihlmaier

When I saw this design of a Sculptured Man reading his own face, it spoke to me. It spoke to me in a funny way BUT also in a deep self-reflection sense. It would be really cool to have this figure sitting on a table and it is definitely a conversation piece.

 Business Development Manager 
 Fun Facilitatorbottle opener 3d printed shookdesign pinshapeBottle Opener w/ Less Material by shookdesign

I’m a big fan of shookdesign’s useful and easy-to-print bottle opener. It’s a must have kitchen accessory and an essential for your next backyard BBQ. This print puts the f-u-n in functionality. Stay thirsty, my friends. Enjoy the weekend! Don’t forget that you can attach this print to any keychain.

 Pi(e) Eaterraspberry pi shell pinshapeThe Shell of Raspberry Pi by 董彬文

My Raspberry Pi has been sitting on the floor collecting dust for over a year now. It was always a bit annoying when it came to cleaning. This case will help protect its small components from the vacuum. The Pi is currently connected to the speakers across the room and is receiving AirPlay audio from Spotify. Great little device, now with a great case!

 🙂 flower pushpinsFlower Pushpins by WallTosh

These flower-pushpins have sunk down into my soul. Like almost any girl I love different cute and useful things. You can use them at home or in office or even for wedding decorations. No matter which place you choose, they will definitely catch your eye. You know beauty is in the details. 🙂
