Wine Cork Trivet
so... i like wine. I like wine alot. I gave up on collecting bottles and labels years ago... but the corks, well... that's a different story. But then comes the dilemma of what to do with all those corks! Here's a great answer - turn them into something useful! the trivet looks like an array of corkscrews - you add your favorite corks and have a useful trivet and conversation piece in one.
recycled motherboards turned into coasters make a great conversation piece or gift for your favorite geeky friends.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
