I took a digital art class at Georgetown during the fall of my junior year. We worked on a bunch of projects (most of which I really hated…). But the one thing that I really loved was learning new programs and working with the drawing tablet. I have to admit that I really struggled with the tablet for a long time. It’s hard (at least for me) to draw on something flat on a table, but look at a vertical screen to see what’s happening.
But over the course of the semester I got more and more used to it. And then the class was over. AND I WANTED A TABLET. Really, really, really wanted one. Every week (seriously for 18 months now…) I would come up with some cool new way to use it. So many projects! So many blog posts! SO MANY COOL THINGS!!!
(And I would get super envious… one of my least favorite emotions… whenever I saw another blogger utilizing one in a blog post.)
Finally, I was working on a project and broke down because I realized how much time it would save me. Thirty minutes before Best Buy closed and I was in line buying a drawing tablet. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited for an electronic. It’s basically a grownup toy.

It didn’t come with a case, but I’ve been toting it along from place to place. Soccer Mom and I set off to make a perfect case for the tablet. (Read: I picked out the fabric and my mom sewed it!)
(Soccer Mom sewing away!)

It’s perfect and I’m just so happy to have the case and the tablet.
Look: I can even digitally sign documents!
Anyone else use a tablet?

At my highschool we had tablet computers, and I must admit that I loved it! Well, had a love-hate relationship with it for a while! I would totally invest in one again just because it's so useful!


hey!! I am really happy you posted this because I was eyeing this bamboo tablet in best buy for some time now. I want to get one to use for school. But I really don't know if I should get this tablet or an ipad. Which do you think would be more useful?(for my classes I need to draw a lot of diagrams and pictures)please help!!!


I love mine, and thanks so much for helping me decide to get it!!!!
I totally understand the love hate relationship mine is giving me some troubles now but I think I am kinda getting the hang of it and I finally made the logo for InaWorldofBees and I am in love!!!
Thanks again!

This looks like such an awesome tool! I might have to get one since I'm an advertising major… I feel like it would be useful. I look forward to seeing how you use it toward College Prep!


Actually I am a digital artist and am obsessed with Wacom! I'm currently looking into their newest pen! Apparently it swivels! Did you use a pattern for your tablet case? I tote mine around and would LOvE to make one of those!

Maybe I'm the only person on Earth who doesn't know, but what do you use a tablet for? Whatever it does, it looks cool and I hope you have a ton of fun playing around with it. Can't wait to see what you create with it, maybe then I'll have a better idea of the tablet's function. Super cute case as well!
