Sharon in our Santa Monica office put on her Santa hat to decorate for the holidays this week. Pictured here on the tree in our entryway: light bulbs painted by Allison, a former super-intern who now works with us part-time. We guess that many of you have already switched your light bulbs to more energy-efficient CFLs, but what else are you tossing in the trash and sending to a landfill that could be transformed into a reusable decoration for the tree? Find DIY ideas galore on the web; start with Threadbanger, Instructables, and the always crafty Martha Stewart.
