Dodecahedron desk calendar
Fancy a cool dodecahedron calendar for your desk? Create one with LaTeX in seconds!
This example of the folding library was originally published in the TeXample gallery at http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/foldable-dodecahedron-with-calendar/.
Drawing coloured boxes using tcolorbox
The package provides an environment for coloured and framed text boxes with a heading line. Optionally, such a box may be split in an upper and a lower part; thus the package may be used for the setting of LaTeX examples where one part of the box displays the source code and the other part shows the output. Another common use case is the setting of theorems. The package supports saving and reuse of source code and text parts.

Drawing Pie Charts with pgf-pie
pgf-pie is a LaTeX package for drawing pie charts (and some interesting variants on pie charts) with the PGF/TikZ graphics package.
The examples in this document are from the pgf-pie manual, version 0.2.
The source code for pgf-pie is available at http://code.google.com/p/pgf-pie/.
Blackboard Beamer Theme
This Blackboard beamer theme and template was created by Kazuki Maeda <firstname.lastname@example.org> for Japanese presentations, but can be used for English (or other European languages) presentations as well. It has been modified to work with XeLaTeX.
p/s: The blackboard background was drawn with TikZ; the code is also included in the template.

LaTeX Wine Stains
It was bound to happen. Now besides coffee stains, you can also add wine stains to your LaTeX document!
wine.sty is actually Hanno Rein's coffee4.sty, with all the 'coffee' replaced by 'wine' in the code, and replaced colour definitions.
Drawing Feynman Diagrams in LaTeX
The code samples here are taken from the tikz-feynman and feynmf package documentations.
Compile with LuaLaTeX to get the most out of tikz-feynman.
