WordPress Update, Plugin, and New Pillow Covers

by Migdalia Rivera

Last week I finally updated my WordPress site to 3.0.1. I also activated a new cache plugin called WP Super Cache. I implemented the changes hoping to speed up my site’s load time, however instead of speeding up my site it caused me countless headaches. 

After the update/new plugin, my emails/RSS feed was no longer updating. My posts were not displaying on the front page and when I created test posts I could not delete them. 

Thankfully, my designer, Revka  (who is a gem!) took the time out of her busy schedule to look over my blog and correct the glitches. After review, she discovered it was the cache that was causing havoc and immediately deactivated the plugin.  

So how do the new pillow covers come in? Well with all that free time, I was able to clean house AND sew two new pillow covers! I decided the original pattern on my sofa pillows didn’t suit me and created new forest green velvet pillow covers. I think they match perfectly with the new wall hanging I recently purchased.

Btw, I no longer have a sewing machine so I did it by hand. It took longer but with so much free time on my hands I probably could have done a dozen!

Are you a crafty chica?

Love it!! I really like the wall hanging, so colorful. I have no imagination for decorating or maybe is because I have never attempted to do it. *blush*

Your site loads faster now :-)

Awesome wall hanging. Please do share, where did you purchase. Love the forest green color, great for the holidays. Add a couple of red ones and you are ready for the holidays. :)

Isolated Existence: Thank you! I love crafts but normally don’t have time to do them so the glitches worked out for the best :) I’m also planning on adding some decorations to the covers this weekend to jazz them up. Now that I took another look, I think they are too bland. They need something that will make them pop and say Latinalicious! LOL Will update when I finish them! *Abrazos*

Sabrina: I found it at the Door Store on 34th Street! I love the colors – so bright and festive. I also like that it matches everything!
