Default Hello Everyone!!!!

My name is Tina McKie and I'm very happt to be here. Originally born and bred in Baltimore City, MD, I now currently reside in Buckhannon, WV with my cat, Poco, my SO of three years, Paul and my two children: (step) Alex, aged 12 and (natural) Philip, aged 16.

For nearly 10 years, I have worked in the medical field in some form. In 2001, I achieved my CNA status from Fred Eberle Technical School here in Buckhannon and worked, for brief spells at both St Joseph's Hospital and Nella's Nursing Home in Elkins. I had worked In-Home Care for about 9 years for an elderly, bed-bound MS sufferer until her death in 2011. I worked about 8 months for a second woman here in Buckhannon (who recently died in 2013) but decided to return to school to school to improve my status in life. Currently, I am undecided as to which degree I will achieve this time: Medical Assistant, LPN or RN. I attend Pierpont Technical and Community College, a branch of Fairmont State University, but I am also seeking out a new college to attend this upcoming fall. While I realize I must impress them, they have to now impress me as well, since it is myself who is paying back what I am borrowing. LOL

Since 2008, I have been tagging in some form. First, as a gatherer of images and adding names -- so illegal now with copyright laws. LOL My mentor, Leila Gines-Sadek, taught me how to actually put my creations together and it's been my addiction since. I love creating graphic art for the enjoyment of others and am happy to bring some sort of light into their lives when I do so.

Now, I am a CT Member for my friend, Priscilla, and that has me thinking outside of that box. I still use her kits to create Signature designs, but I am now learning the ins and outs of digital scrapbooking as well. At first, I was about to give up but I'm really starting to enjoy this a lot! I hope to be able to learn a lot from the talented ladies here to help with my CT work, as well as my snap happy SIL and all the pictures she takes. LOL Maybe I'll get back into taking them myself.
