Roni - Wild Cat

Roni has been scrapping for so long she lost track of when she started. Her friend Garnet is the one who introduced her to the world of Scrapbooking. Garnet took her to Kitty’s house to a CM (Creative Memories) party, and that is were her and Garnet because hooked.

Roni belongs to a group called “The Scrapping Cats”, each member has a name and Roni is known as “Wild Cat” The reason the name was given to her is her love with animal prints (tiger, giraffe, leopard, etc.). Roni, her mom, Sam, and her sister, Kyle are staff members for Gulf Coast Scrappers Roni loves the weekend retreats with all the girls. Her favorite place is ORANGE BEACH--it is wonderful there. GCS has allowed her to go to crops all over the Gulf Coast. She has scrapped locally with the girls at the Scrapbook Cottage and have always had a blast. She misses the Cottage can't wait to be able to scrap again locally and often.
She is married to a wonderful man Benny, Roni and Benny have four children and one granddaughter Kennedy. Kennedy is 6 months old and Roni got to see her twice once when she was born and once for Christmas. Kennedy's Dad (TJ) and Roni’s daughter are in the Marines and they are statio
ned in Hawaii. Boo Hoo --Roni has a daughter that lives in San Francisco and is a San Quentin Correctional Officer. Roni’s oldest son (BJ) is a gunner on a Black Hawk helicopter in the United States Army and is in Iraq--she has not seen him in 14 months. She does to talk to him often on the phone and e-mail .Roni’s youngest son Blaine is working on the river in Chicago for a transport company and loving the chance to travel all over the United States. So what started out as a full house has ended as empty nest. Since Benny works offshore he bought Roni dogs to keep her company. She has two chihuahua's and her son (BJ)'s boxer while he is in Iraq however Roni may keep them all.

Do you have any other hobbies? I love to sleep---it is my favorite hobby--I love to collect scrapping stuff. It is so much fun to see the newest things. My husband and kids say I need to go to intervention for scrap booking. I love sewing to although since I have discovered scrapping I haven't done much--I did do my granddaughters nursery this summer though and that was fun.
