Craft Your Creative Life – Join me, artist and author e’Layne Kelley, in paradise for an all-inclusive Magic of Mixed Media Collage and Soul Renewal Retreat, creating a Wild Women Memory Keeper, empowerment card deck, art journaling, a winged heart and more.  Hacienda Mosaico is dripping with charm.  From the moment you walk through the gated entrance, greeted by a large swimming pool, art galore, exotic flowers and fruit trees, your senses will dance with joy.

Are you ready to step out of your daily life and go on a soulful journey that will feed your spirit for a lifetime?  

Be nurtured on every level and acquire skills and tools to live a happy, inspired life in alignment with your soul’s passions.  Join an adventurous tribe of women and embark on this enriching retreat based on my book to be released in the spring of 2019, Craft Your Creative Life.  I believe creativity is our birthright and we are co-creating everything we do with the same power and energy that birthed this universe.  We will tap into that energetic flow which will awaken an endless creative wellspring, shaping the way you approach life in the future.  Come with an open mind and heart so it can be filled with wonder and magic.  All skill levels, from beginners to professional, are welcomed.
