Handmade South Carolina: Traci Nelson of Tremundo Journals
Artist Traci Nelson’s grandmother taught her to handquilt at a young age and art has been a part of her life and passion ever since. From painting to handbinding, the journal creation process is a combination of Traci’s love of using various textures and mediums. She’s inspired by nature and, in an electronic world, she loves the creative process in which she shares a tangible piece of art with another person—who then fills it with their own life’s moments.
Relatively mild weather year round and stunning scenery make Glen Canyon National Recreation Area a popular wedding destination. Within the park, weddings may be held at the Lake Powell Resort.
