Special Gift for a Special Couple

Congratulations to the happy couple, Dylan and Ann Marie.

What do you give an amazing young couple of newlyweds, who love camping and adventure and games and traveling, live out of state and just bought a house and have no idea what they need yet? Money, of course! But I’m not a fan of just sticking a check inside a card and calling it done. I like to add a little extra, which in this case started out as some outdoor-scented candles, soaps, etc. Then I had the idea to make them something and this is what I came up with: a fabric checkerboard! Who doesn’t need one of THOSE?!?! Honestly, I have no idea if they’ll ever use this but it sure was fun to make with them in mind.
