We have been enjoying home since we got back from our last crazy road trip. Settled in at our beach house, we have been spending some time in the ocean- the water is phenomenal! Lots of shells and manatees on our last visit. Soon I’m getting back into the studio, but I plan on making more time for us to spend afternoons like this.

my plumeria are blooming!
We can’t spend all of our time in the water- so I spent a while updating our website with our current inventory while enjoying the air conditioning (it’s HOT down here!). Check out our latest at barbaraumbel.com.
It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. We just got back from the Main Street Fort Worth Art Festival, which was a great success! MSFW is a prestigious and highly competitive art festival to be invited to, and we can see why after our experience last week. The show was managed beautifully, and well attended by the people of Fort Worth who were very friendly and appreciated our work. We had an outstanding response to our jewelry and met many new collectors over the four day affair. Thanks, Fort Worth, we hope to get to come back and see you again soon! Love your fun town, fine restaurants, and great folks.
Sundance Square is a hoppin’
Brought this new necklace to the show- she was a hit!
View from our boooth- loved having the Little Red Wasp and Capital Grille as our neighbors- yum!
Met Julie, a collector who has been following us online. What a treat!

Had to stop a Buc-ee’s on the way- a TX truck stop/ institution!
I have so many new ideas on my table- necklaces and earrings waiting to come to life. We have two more shows to do in our winter run before I get some dedicated studio time where I can work on new ideas thoughtfully. I can’t wait! In the meanwhile, I’ll keep drawing. This weekend we are off to Sanibel Island for Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club Art and Craft Fair. Looking forward to seeing all of my shell collecting collectors there!
