Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Bonnie Ratzloff




I'm Bonnie and I am married to my husband Ken, and mother of 2 children; John & Sarah. My love of lighthouses began when my mom used to take my brother and I to the beach by the Pacific Grove lighthouse and has continued after she lost her battle to breast cancer. My love of stamping is a release from the stresses of life, but also a continuation of all my mother taught me about painting, water coloring, and crafting. I was blessed to have a loving and talented mother growing up and I'm blessed to have a talent that I can use to bless others with a smile, a hug, or just to say thanks. When I first started stamping over 17years ago, I had  thought it would be a great way to personalize Christmas cards and save on money at the same time.  Little did I know how addicting this hobby can be.  Over the last 17 years, I have not only learned a lot of different techniques, but have made many fantastic friends along the way.  I started on the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company Friends of SpeedyTV Design Team in October 2011,  then moved up to the Senior Design Team in November 2011.  Currently I am the coordinator for the Speedy Fox Featured Designer tutorial series.
