So CUTE!

I bought this from another big box office chain and the minute I saw it I knew I needed it on my desk. I wish Quirky would make more things that would go with this :)

Very useful!
Purchased

I originally bought the Quircky Pen Zen for myself and a few girls at work for our desks. However, we all quickly realized how useful it would be for our make-up brushes. It easlily holds all make-up brushes, eyeliners, mascara etc. The magnetic side is great for bobbi pins. I'm sure it'd be helpful at work as well.

Love it!
Purchased

I have a small desk and have it standing vertically. The rubberized "fingers" hold my pens and pencils securely in place while the sides hang on to random paper clips. And it looks great.

Quirky pen zen
Purchased

Another great idea... This is one of those things that I just keep finding new ways of using it.. It's like a third hand ...last night I was me using it to hold my paint brushes while I was painting ...right now I'm using it to hold my nail polish bottles while I do my nails and later I'm going to use it to hold my hair pens while I fix my hair .. It's just the handset little thing I have right now so much more then a pen holder... Thanks

so cute!
Purchased

I ordered the Quirky Pen Zen with my points for my desk. Its a little smaller than I had pictured but I still love it. I read another review where someone said that the wood was splitting apart on one end and mine is doing the same thing. I sat it in my desk in a way that you don't notice and I get compliments on it a lot. This is a great stocking stuffer/small gift for anyone - it would look great for make up or toothbrushes too!

Great for eye liners

This is a great find for holder eye and lip liners. I'd like to have 2 of them. I think it could hold other makeup products.

Handy

This little holder is handy and definitively unique. It isn't quite what I expected but like it just the same.

Co-Worker Loves It
Purchased

I purchased this for a co-worker and she loves it. Although the item was shrink wrapped with cardboard, one corner had slight damage. My co-worker didn't mention it but I did. In any event, she proudly has her pen zen displayed on her desk. Very inventive concept.

Pen Holder
Purchased

It would be good for a gift but not the best pen holder I have ever purchased. It leaves the pens a bit tall since you cant put them all the way through as shown in the picture and they make the desk space look clustered since they never seem to stand up straight. great gift idea, not the best organizer in the world.
