To me it looks like you need to change your background code for the wider three column, just click over to Shabbyblogs.com and select the same background (or any background that you like better) but it will have the (W) beside it for wide, grab the code and replace it.

I would lose the header unless you run it through Picassa or Picnick and put your blog title on it then reinstall. Or you can just play with your fonts and things in your template designer they offer a bigger variety than ever before and you can select different ones for each element or all the same...also you can now select the size.

Hope this helps...I'm a former blogger that used Shabbyblogs backgrounds a lot and loved to help others in need.

If you need to contact me with any questions, my name is Tammy and my email is pink-magnolia@hotmail.com

I enjoy your blog!

PS...I believe you are using Picture Window template now but, go to your Blogger Template Designer and the best template to use is "Simple" after you've switched to it click on Advanced then click on Backgrounds on each one of those click the box at the right of each one...in the lower corner will be a Transparent selection...choose that and your shabbyblogs template with show through nice and clear.

Thanks for the help! I didn't expect anyone to answer, lol. I'm very grateful though! Thanks! I cleaned it up a little by using your suggestions. Now, I'll have to figure out a cute theme I try and make it, 'cause the one now isn't what I envision. WIP, one day! thanks again Tammy!

You are welcome Mariah...I just went into look at blogger backgrounds and there are several clothing ones under "Shopping" themes.

Have fun!!

Set up a test blog for you to see..


I don't mind helping at all...empty nester...lots of time on my hands and know how frustrating it can be to want a blog just so.

How do you envisage it Mariah? That is always a good start, actually typing it out can really help you define how you want it too look. Also check out other blogs and see what you like (and what you don't) about them.

Hope this helps,

Feel free to email me too at madana.harrop @ gmail.com
