Michael Miller – Giveaway # 2

Vanuatu is lovely, with warm weather and beautiful, friendly people.

We’re all enjoying our family holiday, though at times I do think this is a resort better suited to couples or older kids as there are a few restaurants / bars which only allow patrons 12 years plus.

Today is my and hubby’s wedding anniversary, so we’re celebrating with some local wine and an $8 bar of Cadburys chocolate which we bought earlier today at the local supermarket :-)

Now, are you ready for giveaway number 2??

Today, it’s a little bit of Michael Miller… I have a little bundle of 3 Fat Quarters (FQ’s) to giveaway.

This fabric reminds of Greece – the colours and designs really have a Grecian feel – don’t you think?

For a chance to win this prize, entering is simple! Be a follower of my blog over there on the right sidebar, with Google Friend Connect and then just leave me a comment telling me:

What is your perfect family vacation?
 
We love to fish and swim, so anywhere close to the water suits us. As the kids get older, we’ll no doubt head to all of the Queensland fun parks with rides and roller coasters. We even have Disneyland or Disney World on the agenda… but maybe not for a few more years.

For an extra entry, blog about this giveaway and leave another comment with your blog link.

And for another entry, ‘Like’ the Samelia’s Mum Facebook Page. The link is up top on the right.

Entries close at midday (AEST) on 26 September 2011.

This giveaway is open to everyone so International entries are very welcome.

Make sure you come back again in another day or so for my next giveaway… and if you haven't entered yet, go and have a look at my previous giveaway of a Buttercup by Moda charm pack.

  1. Perfect family vacation is somewhere we can do lots of walking, with beaches and water, shopping, good food and a comfortable bed.

  5. My favourite holiday destination is up at Forster/Tuncurry. There's the beach for cooling off and relaxing and Barrington Tops nearby for a bit of bushwalking and lovely 'village' atmosphere. As the kids get older though and have work (and social commitments!), our family is getting smaller *sigh*

  6. I live in Ontario, Canada and we have had awesome holidays on the east coast and out in the west... I would go either way, any holiday again!

  7. Visiting family...we're spread out over 3 countries and all over the US. So, anytime we get a chance to get together in any part of the world, it's good times.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, since both of my children are grown and gone, we don't take "family" vacations anymore. But I do LOVE the beach.

  25. Our perfect family vacation was going to the mountains. We would camp and take our bikes. We would also go to the local fun park, where we would ride the go carts and play the games. Happy anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My perfect family vacation would be to go on a cruise ship! I don't really care where it goes, although in a perfect world I would love to be able to take them on one of the Disney cruises, with a trip to Disney World on the side! (My kids are 3 & 5)

    If it were an anniversary trip for my husband and I though, a cruise through the Greek Isles would be lovely! (Inspired by your "greek themed" Michael Miller fabrics!)

  45. I am follower through Google - don't know if I appear in the sidebar!

    My favourite family holiday involves the beach; most often two you no doubt know - Bulli and/or Windang! Why? Because they are only an hour and a half from home so when the holiday is over there's no stressful long drive home!

    Overseas or interstate? Anywhere I haven't been before or for a very long time!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The perfect family vacation would be somewhere that has a beach and fun stuff for my younger kids to do. I would love to take the family to Disneyland one year (when the kids are older), and also to the beach by the ocean (as we live way inland...). Thanks for a lovely giveaway!

  52. When we were growing up, our family went to a lodge in Northern California, USA every summer, where we fished and swam and read books and picked berries. I thought that was heaven, still do.

    An alternative perfect vacation for us now is a trip to Washington, DC. Almost every activity is free, and there is so much culture and history to take in. We love it there.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I'm a follower.
