Rena Cotti-Creative Director, Owner

I have a passion to give you space to create in... This is our 11th Anniversary year at Rockin' R Retreat Center!

I've been hosting retreats for 25 years... and I still LOVE it! Love it so much, we opened our own retreat center.

Rockin' Reality Retreat Services hosts the ultimate art, scrapbook, quilting, jewelry and craft retreats in Central Texas.

All my retreats are held at Rockin' R Retreat Center, which is owned and operated by my husband, Don, and myself.

...with love, Rena
