Is there a way to shrink the footer widgets?

Is there some custom css that can make the footer widget area a very thin row rather than having it so wide?

Hi,

You can apply custom css below in order to reduce top and bottom padding:

.footer-widgets {
    padding: 35px 0;
}

Result should look like this http://screencast.com/t/HJYIyWjkp
If this suits you, you can apply the code with simple custom css plugin, if not, please send your page link and explain your demands a bit.

Best Regards
