Well we finally did it. After years of being a "sustainable practice", driving a Prius and having the garbage men look at me with suspicion as he takes our ONE garbage bag; we made our own tree. Rational includes,"we are designers and we should design everything", "we are in NYC during the xmas week and its a waste"...but it is fun to start a new tradition in the middle of it all....oh and the blonde barbie angel is a tradition brought from Brooklyn. You mean Barbie Angels aren't common practice in the south?????
