  1. We are Re-Branding!

    Its that time of year again when I have some time to make some changes.

    The website will get its yearly overhall in the winter, but for now, we are making some changes to what we call oursleves. The website will still keep the parent name of T&M Arts and Crafts, but it will now have new names for Marks artwork and my jewellery.

    Mark is now Mark Betson Artist, which he has been calling "himself" for sometime, you may already know and be friends with him on his Mark Betson Artist facebook page.  He is (slowly) building his own website with this domain name and we have recently seperated our Etsy shop, so he now has his own Mark Betson Etsy shop, which I will be adding new items to soon.

    The biggest change is to what I will be calling my jewellery. T&M Arts and Crafts just isn't very sexy,  now it features on its own Etsy Shop (and soon the Folksy shop will be seperated too) so I am now calling it "Spirales D'argent" (which is french for Silver Spirals).

    I have purchased the domain names spiralesdargent.co.uk and spiralesdargent.fr this is because we are also preparing for our eventual relocation to our french house we have owned for 9 years. All of which will direct you to this website.

    Everything will come with new logos and headers and I am working on new photos too.

    So watch this space!

  2. Another year has been completed at Sidmouth Folk Festival and I loved it!!

    Despite the not so great weather this year, where we had to be ready with the gazebo sides at the slightest sign of rain as it inevitably ended up being a down pour!  But we were prepared with clear sides that wrapped all the way round the front of the gazebo, just leaving a little doorway, much to my envious neighbours displeasure, we were as snug as a bug and just sat it out until the sun came back out.

    It was great to see so many returning customers from the past two years, including the new owners of the Corn Field original painting, who purchased it back in 2015, who popped in to say hello and see whats new.

    I am finding there is a definite liking for either the new Animal paintings or the Tree paintings, so I have started to put them on either side, which seems to work well.

    We finished the week off with a stand at the new Bridport Folk Festival, which went really well too.

    We are back to the "normal" jobs for a week and then its off to have some fun as punters at a festival in Brighton and then we are going over to the French house for 10 days to get some more work on it done.

    No rest for the wicked!

    Then it will be Chardstock, RSPCA Fun Day at West Hatch and Priston in September.
