The more pics of Market there are, the better I like it. So thx. :)

Wherever you travel, I say choose one spot and stay there until you've examined every nook and cranny. Don't take a tour.


What great photos - I almost feel like I was there! Thanks!

My fiancee and I went to Croatia last September, and it was incredible! We stayed along the coastline, and the water views were just stunning...Rijeka, Split, and Dubrovnik were our main destinations. Next time, I think we'll spend more time in the northern part from Rijeka to Split and see more of the islands. Gorgeous, gracious people (and they tend to speak English quite well!), and the food was incredible!

We also just got back from a great trip to New Orleans, if you are looking for something a little closer to home!


For international travel - I love South Africa. Where else can you play with a baby cheetah and go on wine tours in one day?
But this year we are doing the east coast beach thing. So I can take my dog :)


I just got back from Key West. Loved it! I'd love to visit one of our national parks, maybe Yellowstone.


I loved you quilt market recap. Out of all the photos I've seen, I like yours the best! They are sort of "behind the scene" shots, and I really enjoyed them.


I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, so that's my suggestion!


What a lovely giveaway.My dream wish land is Spain so here you go =o).


I haven't traveled much in the last few years at all, so I'm drawing a blank on anything new and different. Italy is my dream va-cay...

Love package #2, I am so anxious to get my hands on a new Kona Color card!


Our favorite destinations are Florence, Grand Cayman, Whistler, and Oahu :) All of them are kid friendly!

I went to Alaska 2 years ago in August... a word of advice: August is not the time to visit, it had already turned back to cool/rainy/cloudy. Go in July instead!

Thanks for the eye candy from market! I love to see it! As far as destination suggestions, I have a couple of them. First is Bora Bora. My husband and I went there on our honeymoon and stayed in one of the over the water bungalows. We were just talking about it last night and how we were glad we had that experience. It was like no other place I have ever been, untouched true tropical beauty, so raw in comparison to Hawaii. Took us 24 hours to get there flying out of Louisville, KY. The 2nd suggestion is Alaska. My husband and I went there to celebrate our 10th anniversary a couple of summers ago. We went at the end of June and it was perfect, although a little weird that it never completely got dark. We hiked on a glacier, saw moose, the salmon fishermen, tons of eagles, and much more. If you go there, don't miss Talkeetna. Loved both of these vacations. (Sorry for writing a book!)


At the risk of sounding like the Hawaii Visitor's Bureau, I'll suggest Hawaii. Weather is always delightful, you don't need a passport or foreign currency & we could use the boost to our economy!

Of the places I've been, my favorite is Yellowstone Nat'l Park! I've never traveled outside of the USA, but if I could I'd love to see some of Africa and New Zealand.


I love love Maui!!!

What a great new collection Kingdom is, thank you for designing it.

I love package #2 as well....perfect.

I have so many places on my travel wish list that it's a bit ridiculous! Among the many are Italy, Holland, Iceland, New Zealand, Alaska, Seattle (Washington), Santa Fe (New Mexico), Boston...
