Last snow day I caught up on all the Grimm episodes I missed...but hot cocoa, letter writing, snowshoeing and crafting are up there on my to do on snowy days! That tablet sounds awesome, where did you find it?

Kathy Zadrozny


Noel, The tablet is the Wacom Bamboo Splash model and I got it off of Amazon. They have three different models within the Bamboo range, depending on what your design needs are.

I just got a new Wacom for home too. Mine is the larger Bamboo that does take the wireless adapter ($30 extra). Its the first wireless Wacom I've ever had and I've used a lot of Wacoms in my time. My favorite is still a little early model of the Bamboo that I gave to Katie at Skylab.

As for learning to get comfortable with a Wacom, I recommend using it exclusively for a couple weeks instead of a mouse or trackpad. Force yourself. It will feel awkward and weird for awhile but then it will be second nature. At work, I use my Wacom for everything -- email, web, Photoshop, everything. You'll get the hang of it!
