The Spring Cure: Week Zero

The Spring Cure: Week Zero

We're starting off the Spring Cure with a "soft launch." Today marks the beginning of Week Zero, giving you some time to get the book, settle into your home, and get ready. This is the second time we've done the Cure in Chicago, and we've already got a great Flickr pool going. Conversations have started, photos have been uploaded, and our Cure members are ready to go. if you want to start a picture set on Flickr and don't have an account yet, get over there and sign up. Click below to see how the Cure works:

Who: Anyone who wants to join can participate in the Flickr Group and follow the Cure posts on AT.

What: We use the AT Book as a guide, focusing on a different part of the process (cleaning, choosing colors, lighting, etc) each week. The Cure has two levels, one of which requires next to no financial investment (but lots of elbow grease) and you can choose to focus on one room or the whole home at once.

When: Week One officially starts on Monday, 3.10.08. The Cure lasts 8 weeks, and at the end you'll host a get-together for friends or family in your new space.

Where: Choose the city nearest you to determine which group you'll be participating in. Cure posts will pop up on the main AT page 2-3 times a week. In between those posts, there's constant activity in the Flickr Group.

Why: To make our homes healthier, calmer, more organized, and more beautiful places to live. It can be tough, but you'll have lots of people helping you along the way.

How: People upload their progress to the Flickr group, and I pull photos from that pool to post to AT:Chicago. When you upload photos, you can also ask your Flickr friends for suggestions on how to fix problem rooms.
