New Toy: A Bamboo Tablet
No, its not a plant, its not a medicine tablet either. It’s a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet! I’ve been wanting to have this for awhile now since both me and my daughter love illustration. I’ve also been doodling a lot with Inkscape and GIMP and have started exploring Adobe Illustrator.
Doing that with a mouse is hard and pretty tiring. But there really not much option when it comes to graphic tablets here in Phnom Penh so I settled into not having one till we travel again. But just recently, I discovered the joys (and the profitability!) of designing digital scrapping kits and I’m obsessed!
I figured since hubby is in the US right now, I should buy one for myself and he could just bring it over this December. I’d been browsing around different electronics online stores and had a few choices already but I got sidetracked and ended up buying a Nintendo Wii instead of the graphic tablet. I didn’t want to spend more so I just placed my graphic tablet pick on our Amazon account wishlist.
But just recently, I think hubby has been checking the account and saw that on the wishlist! And what do you know, he bought me one! And at a hefty discount too. Lucky me! When I first saw it, it was priced about $80 but now he just bought it for $58!!! Now, I can’t wait till I try it out!
For sure I’ll be posting my digital scrapbook doodles, freebies on my crafting blog – MyCraftingDen and Chinkee’s doodles will be posted here 🙂
Wheeeee!! I can’t help but squeal! Santa came in early for me..
