Fun with my new tablet

My husband gave me a really cool computer tool for Christmas - it's a Bamboo writing tablet (no it's not made of bamboo - that's just its name) by Wacom. ***I've updated this post to alert any other tablet users of a known bug that causes a conflict between tablets and HP printers with Windows Vista. If you get the error message "hpqscnvw has stopped working" when you try to scan a document, go apply this patch: here's the link.***

I've been playing with the tablet today by using it to modify the picture of the purple dress to see what the dress looks like with various changes.

Here it is with just a hemmed neckline and sleeves (click on all pictures for a larger view):

Here is with a lowered neckline:

Here is with a lower neckline and trim added:

Here is with a lower neckline, trim and buttons:

So what do you think?


  1. I like the lowered neckline with the dark trim. The buttons don't add anything for me.

  2. Hey I got the same Christmas present... I haven't hook mine up yet. I'm bookmarking your blog to see what how your using Bamboo.


  3. Nice gift! I liked the last version better, with the lower neckline, trim and buttons.

  4. What a neat toy! I also like the last one the best.

    What a perfect gift for you!

    I love the second to last version the best, the buttons take away from the gorgeous trim work.

    I also LOVE your old Christmas village.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  6. what a cool tool! I think that is the same that we gave to one of my daughters for Christmas. I might have to borrow it!

  7. Cool gift! I like the last two options better!

    Happy New Year!

  8. Hi! I like the last two options. I'm not sure about the buttons, but lowered and trim added - absolutly! g
