Are you a "Crafty Californian?" Create an ornament for the National Christmas Tree!
The U.S. Department of Forestry will be providing 2011's National Christmas Tree from California, and all Californians can participate by sending in a crafted ornament for the outdoor display. Five thousand ornaments will be needed, and only a percentage of that goal has been collected so far--so get out your craft kits, give the kids a fun project, and help decorate our national tree for the holidays! Deadline is September 30.
