Before we fall into the accelerated pace of autumn and the holiday season, it’s a good idea to spend some time taking stock of what supplies you have on hand. No matter what you create, adventurous makers, you’ll probably be in the thick of it soon. Before you get started, make sure you don’t have supplies that are past their expiration date or oils that have gone rancid. And it will save so much time if you have everything organized now so you can work efficiently later. Let’s make sure you have everything you need BEFORE you are in the middle of a project.
And then we want you to show us what you’ve done! If you’re really brave, how about before and after photos of your storage? Tell us about your process – what did it take to get done? We can inspire each other!
Here’s the fun part! We want to see the craziest thing you found when you went through your supplies. Send us a photo with a description, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a really cool prize – a gift certificate you can use on your next thesage.com order!
I recently went through this exercise, and I was delighted to find a bunch of loofahs in a box on top of a cabinet. I had completely forgotten about them! My plan was to cut the loofahs into a size that would fit my cavity molds and pour soap over them to create exfoliating bars of triple butter soap.
Whether it was a six-year-old bottle of preservative or a cool specialty item you’d forgotten you had, we can’t wait to hear from you!
