Not enough friends coming over? Try a new doormat!
The rapid payoff between idea conception to execution to enjoyment is delightful.
I used to have a planter full of grass as a doormat so my guests could run their bare feet through a real lawn (take that, astroturf!), but this is much easier to maintain — and more fun. The bubblewrap gets used up, but I also get a lot of mail, so it’s easy to resupply.
