Good Quote: My mom saw my Cure photos the other night & said she looked at them for almost 2 hours & is so ridiculously momproud of me, it really makes it worthwhile. Before I moved into my place a year ago, I was kind of homeless living, for 2 years, in a windowless room in the back of my friend's shop with no kitchen or bathroom. This is a huge step forward & AT really inspired me to live the good life. - Jenny!

Congratulations to the East Coast Class of Spring '08! This is our final Spring Cure post, and I welcome all of you below (as well as the other graduates at our sister sites) to the growing ranks of Cure Graduates who have made (or experienced) profound change in their lives through improving their homes. You all are awarded the Cure Trophy - hand forged by elves deep in the mountains of Iceland - and will receive a diploma in the mail documenting this momentous occasion. See you all for the next Cure, starting at the beginning of October!

Most Inspirational Curees of Spring 2008: Alana in Canada, Suziegoombs & Lorijo

From Wednesday: I'm going to put this post up today and then complete it on Friday. In the meantime, I'm going to look for final pics in this thread as well as the last post and prepare the final graduation post. Please direct me by commenting "Done" or "Almost Done" or "Will Be Done", so that I can organize all graduates.

I'm also going to ask for the first time, that all of you nominate one person from your class to be the "Most Inspiring Curee of Spring '08", who I will feature at the top. This is an opportunity to give one another props (always good) and inspire one another in yet another way....


Sidstiles new bedroom (though not totally finished). Not only is the arrangement neater and better, but check out the cool new paint scheme.

Good Quote: "Today, my new fridge arrived and the old one was removed. Next week will be my marathon kitchen renovation which means I am not necessarily a cure drop-out, I just should have signed up for the kitchen cure instead! My biggest accomplishment within the regular Cure timetable is that I started using my kitchen and learning to cook." - Evilstudio
