In November, we started doing something fun, but if you have not placed an order since then, you don’t know about it. We have revived our monthly newsletter, and we are sending a copy with every order that leaves our warehouse. The fun comes with a list of creative prompts on the back of each edition. The prompts are to help you step outside the box, challenge your brain, and see where your creativity can take you.
We thought it would be fun to share the prompts here, and we’ll be making some products to go along with many of the days. If you’re not subscribed to our blog, please don’t wait! There are so many fun posts coming up that you won’t want to miss. Get our blog in your email by subscribing at blog.thesage.com/subscribe.
