EastVillageAmy says: I was reluctant to sign up for the Spring cure because I have a few other projects going on and most of the major stuff will have to wait for the summer (and my raise to kick in.) But seeing some familiar names going with a Cure lite has inspired me to do it again.
Welcome everyone and what a big group. As we get started I want to address one question about the signup - we only collected emails and addresses so that we knew where you were and could contact you and mail you a Cure Diploma at the end. It's totally private, so don't worry. While you start reading, taking the quiz and/or get working on your home, I have gone through our Flickr pool and pulled just a couple of your pics. If you want to highlight your pics, put your link in with your comments. This will allow us all to talk about one and learn from one another's project.

Welcome to our fifth Eight Step Cure!
This Week's Assignment: Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the ground work and gets you started with the interview and short quiz on the health of your home...
Starting this week, we'll be getting started on
Curing our homes, following the eight chapters of our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure. Our goal? To form an online group together and share in making our own homes beautiful, healthy and organized in time for Thanksgiving. For the first time, we're also holding the Cure in four cities: CH, SF, LA and NY, so you can join a group that's close to you.
>> For all info go to the The Cure Archive.
>> The Cure posts will go up twice a week, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "apartmenttherapycure." See our old pics here too.
>> The Fall Cure is live in all four of our Home city sites:
• Chicago & their Flickr group
• San Francisco & their Flickr group
• Los Angeles & their Flickr Group
• New York & our Flickr group
Please choose the site nearest your home to join, but feel free to browse on all!
NOTE: We're having trouble pulling up the Book Blog right now, but should have it up by tomorrow and will post to the front of the blog to notify you
