About TDeYoung
Joined February 2016
Hi everyone! I'm Tina. I decided to update my profile and tell you all a little more about me.
I am a proud mother of 3 grown children. I have a wonderful husband, a dog, two cats and a bunny. Yeah, we're all animal lovers in our house!

I love to spend time playing games and camping with my family. I also love to read. My Nook and Kindle go everywhere with me. A year or 2 ago I started playing around with learning to draw. It is so fun! Now I carry a sketch pad and pencils everywhere with me too.

I currently work for a company providing services for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. It's a great place to work. Unfortunately due to health issues and side-effects from oral cancer treatments, I need to find a different way to earn my income. That's where Wealthy Affiliate comes in. I'm going to work hard at this and eventually make it my full time job! It's a lot of learning, but I've already learned so much from Kyle's lessons, and I really appreciate all of the help everyone gives here at WA!

Take a look at my websites sometime! I'd love some feedback from you.

Thank you, Tina, I am proud to follow you, thank you for the opportunity. I too have found it more difficult to follow my dreams due to my body letting me down but as you know that does not mean your mind gives up!! just have to find that workaround.

You are not alone!

Hello Tina,
Thanks for the follow. I'm following you back now.

All the best with your goals. I hope you're making progress - even if it's so slow it feels like moving toenail shaving by toenail shaving.

Life's like that, isn't it! And sometimes it's all mess and no life! That's just reality. But reality is better than living in LaLa Land, and just pretending - because in Reality Land you're paying it ahead/paying your dues, etc. And even if the lessons don't seem useful to us, there's someone else out there we might be able to point in the right direction at some stage because we've learnt the hard way.

Best wishes,
Merrin

I've always wanted to draw but despite a drawing class, it never took. Could you recommend a method to learn to draw?

You bet! Go to this page of my site and get this book. It's a great way to learn! I used it and so have others. It's fun and it's easy to follow! Have some fun!!

Hi Tina,

Thank you so much for the follow. I am delighted to be in your network.

Pets are sometimes better than people. At this time, we are trying to gain the trust of a grey and white male kittie. We have named him Mr. Grey hehe

I wish you the best of everything.
Reply
TDeYoung Premium
Mr Grey will warm up to you. I love trying to earn the trust of scared animals. It is so rewarding.
Reply
LisaFranks Premium
Yes, it sure is rewarding. I have done it before with a dog that had been badly abused. I only had the honor of her presence for 2 1/2 years when she died due to her past abuse. I was able to gain her trust in just 3 days. Never had to put her on a leash after that. She went from this scared little 1 1/2 year old beagle/pointer mix to the most loving dog ever.

LOL as I type this comment, Mr. Grey is crying outside the door.

Hehe! Nice pun. I appreciate your visit. Now, really, I'm promoting learning how to draw. Go to my website and check out the Drawing Gallery page. I'm going to have to re-name that page, I think. Anyway..there's a great book for beginners that I review. You can draw - even in only 30 days! I dare you to try it! Here's the link.

I bought myself a drawing book the other day but didn't draw anything in it yet... I used to draw very realistically....was maybe a little too perfectionisn though and critical... I like your drawing by the way... I checked some of them on your website and thoght that you were really talented

Thanks again. Try to just have fun with your drawing. I sometimes try to make my drawings too specific and then I get frustrated and don't like it as much. When I just let it happen it is so much more fun.

hi tina thanks for the follow.
love the drawing website - you should start offering to do drawing for the folks on here to use as piccies on their site - and yours!!
i like the other site - you don't have as much energy radiated from this site - it appears more mechanical - it's good, the way you weave WA into your posts but......
i wish you well with both sites
please note these are my opinions.
