“Shake it like a Polaroid picture”: Cupcake Rehab got a new look.

June 14, 2012

In case you haven’t noticed the obvious; things look different around here. I revamped the entire website, from soup to nuts (haha, pun intended). If you’re lost, here’s the rundown: on the main page each polaroid is a blog post. You can access them just by clicking the polaroid or blog title underneath it, and the post will open. To access the main page again, simply click ‘Home’ above or the header image itself, both will bring you back. For anything else, just scroll down. You’ll see the search box, categories, archives and links down at the bottom of the page. The other pages, such as ‘About Me’ and ‘Press’ are still located at the top, just under the header image, like the ‘Home’ button. The categories & links don’t open in a new page, they open directly below the title, then you click the title and they go away again. Easy! The best way to figure it out is just to go around clicking on stuff. If anything looks off or funky, don’t hesitate to shoot me an e-mail. I can’t promise it’ll be fixed, because these things do tend to sometimes look different on various browsers/computers/resolutions/etc, but I’ll try to remedy the issue.

In the meantime, enjoy it. It’s simpler, cleaner, and there’s less information shoved in your face the minute you log on. Coming here and seeing all that text that looked like a novel was kind of overwhelming for some people, it was kind of a person with ADD’s nightmare. Yeah, it’ll take some getting used to for all of us, I’m sure, this blog hasn’t had a complete layout change in a very long time. Probably since 2008. And I didn’t plan on it, but it happened thanks to a stupid mistake I made that was, to use a phrase I hate: a blessing in disguise. I really needed a change, anyway, and I think it’s for the best. But the absolute best part? That it’s all done now so we can all sit back, relax, and take it in. And I can start with new posts!

In addition to all that, I added about a gazillion new links. All of them are “internet friends” of mine from way back when (over 10 years, some of them) who’ve either revived their blogs, started new ones, or were recently re-discovered by me. So if you’re bored with this site (HOW FREAKIN’ DARE YOU), then feel free to sort through my links. I guarantee there’s something for everyone in there, and most of them are run by incredibly cool, incredibly interesting people. When I say “internet friends,” for most of them that’s a poor description implying they’re nothing more than a name on a monitor & that is so not true.

And now for something completely different…


That’s one of my favorite things to use as decoration in the summer. A vintage Ball jar (or a new one), a vase, candle holder or goldfish bowl (or any other interestingly shaped clear glass vessel), half filled with sand and then topped with seashells, starfish and/or filled just with sea glass. You can buy a bag of sand at a toy store, or just bogart some from the beach. Same with the seashells- you can buy them in a craft store or you can just take some home with you from a day at the shore. It’s a fun project to do! Me & my mother made like 60+ of them one year as favors for my aunt’s birthday party, and I have tons of them around here at home. When those come out, I know it’s officially summertime. They look so pretty and they’re outdoor friendly too. You can even add tealights to them. Do you have any summer traditions or decorations that kick off the season? Or any fancy little things you do with seashells? Tell me!

It’s definitely summer, everyone. Get your flip flops and beach towels ready. And don’t forget to enter the Sourpuss Clothing cupcake cookie jar giveaway! It ends midnight EST on June 19th. So go enter! You know you want to.
