New Blog Look & A Blessed Day

Good Morning! Well, It feels a bit strange, here. For those of you who are new, I have just radically overhauled the look of my Blog! And, for those of you who have been with me for quite awhile, what do you think?

I have received more than a few comments and/or e-mails that Shoestring Elegance's "old" blog background was dark, and perhaps very difficult to read, especially for those of you who were viewing from Mobile devices. So, I dived in and changed to a lighter background with dark print. 



I'm feeling a bit like a fish out of water! Very new and different for me to get used to. With that said, I'm not sure I am done yet! The trials of being an OCD'er!  I would love your feedback about the change. It is far more for your reading pleasure than for me, personally. 


None the less, today is a wonderful day! Yesterday and today I have been honored and Blessed with the task, of once again, handling Decor for my church's Baptismal Celebration dinner!! So once again with great pleasure, I got to play with roses, I mean, arrange some absolutely beautiful roses for the tables at the celebration dinner! Aren't they stunning? Who would not want to play, ahemm, arrange such beauty?!!  

I hope you you all enjoy the new look, here! Please let me know in the comments.  I am off to finish up with my decor for the celebration. I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful Saturday! Oh my goodness, I almost forgot to tell you, IT'S RAINING, here, this morning!!! Gonna definitely have to do some dancing it, while I can! :)
Many Blessings to you all, and much gratitude for you taking time to come over for a visit! I appreciate you all so much!

  3. It looks fantastic Theresa! Very clean and easy to read. That is what I try for too. Where did you get that "Share It" Facebook and Twitter badge? I need something simple like that. I haven't ever paid anyone to overhaul my design I just learn as I go, tweaking along the way.

  4. Hi Theresa! I love how your blog looks, especially the header! How did you do that? I am in the process of changing my blog and am having trouble getting the wallpaper to show up that I downloaded. I may have to completely start over, blah! If you have any tips to share with me, please do so. Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

    1. Fellicia, It wasn't too hard, just a bit time consuming and a little tedious. Shoot me an e-mail and I'll be happy to share what I found out with you. There is a special code for centering those darn headers!
      I'd be happy to help!
