On moving day, you can't be blamed if you don't have a proper welcome mat in place at the front door yet. There are likely much more important things to get to (like unpacking your underwear!). But here's a neat temporary way to make your mark and let everyone know you've moved in and all are welcome to stop in and check out the new digs:This chalk-drawn welcome mat is perfect for scrawling on the sidewalk the day you move in. The postman will know you've occupied your new pad, friends will feel invited in, and you'll have warm fuzzies every time you step through your new front door. By the time it starts to fade, you may be unpacked and ready to put a more permanent mat in its place.
