East Village Amy is back with a whole new style tray of inspiration. See her first photo set here. I particularly like this dutch barn photo, and the challenge of getting that into an East Village apartment is particularly exciting to me.
• Cure Clock: 51 days Remaining • Assignment: Read Ch. 1, clean and list repairs • Flickr Pool: East Fall Cure Pool Here we go into the first weekend and thank you for sharing all your great comments and enthusiasm for getting things done this fall. I love all your lists. Now, starting on whichever day you choose, be sure to ALSO list each of your accomplishments at least once a week. We are often more aware of what we want to do than what we've done, and this type of complimentary listing give us energy as we go. Here are two comments I wanted to highlight where a little strength from the group will be very useful... "My impediments (besides massive amounts of laziness) are: (1) 198376780 pounds of books and art supplies; (2) mr. deathstar who has rejected all my design plans thus far; and (3) a 700 pound sleeper sofa that I want to get rid of but can't find anyone who wants to try to take it down 3 flights of steep stairs." - mdeathstar "This is my first Cure and it's long overdue. My oldest daughter has gone off to college and I'm anxious to get her stuff under control. I have years of general decluttering to do. My husband is a college professor and music director at shows in the evenings, so I'm mostly home alone with my 3 year old daughter. I'm a little nervous about committing to this Cure (because I'll be doing it on my own), but now is really the time to get moving." - highlysung LATEST NEWS ---------------------------------------------
