Arts & Crafts Festivals #3

Mesa Arts Center Holiday Art & Music Festival
Dec 12th & 13th 2009
Mesa, AZ

It was a cold rainy weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. A rarity really. Of course it had to fall on Mesa Arts Center's Holiday Art & Music Festival.

Of all the festivals we've attended so far, I must say they did the most for the vendors. We had volunteers waiting for us as we pulled up, helping us to unload our car and cart all of our goods to our space. They brought us water throughout the day and frequently visited us to see if they could booth sit for us. Wow, was I impressed! Not to mention, a few of the volunteers bought some of our buckles. Can’t beat that!

There was fabulous entertainment! You’ll hear one of the local bands, Elixer, on the video. There was great face painting for the kids and dogs (check out the little girl and doggie on our video) done by Snazzy Fun Face Painting (480) 890-8271, and some talented break-dancing done by Arizona Floor Assassins.

This show we focused our video more on the overall festival rather than specific artists. And, since Jon and I are both dog lovers, we got lots of doggie pics. There were some of the most unusually large dogs out, and some just plain loveable faces. Enjoy!


  1. What a great idea to do video! Love it!

  2. Thank you so much for doing this! It was such a pleasure to have you at our event - I still want that pink crown buckle, too! It was a pleasure meeting both of you and I hope to see you around again soon - I will definitely follow you! Keep up the great work!
