Project 52:52 | what we make of it

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/200, ISO 4000 ••• FIFTY TWO. No way. How has it already been a YEAR?! My goodness. I can hardly believe it. I have to say…of all of the projects that I have done this last year (and wow, there have been a lot of them!) this might be my favorite. What a…

Project 52:51 | fleeting

Metadata: f/1.4, 1/50, ISO 6400 (yowza) ••• It’s been an exhausting month. Between the holidays…a fiery two year old…third trimester of pregnancy…AND a husband TDY (which means GONE, for those of you non-military folk) it’s been tough. I won’t lie. But every night I let her fall asleep with her “christmas” on…her lime green tree…

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Christmas has always been my absolute favorite time of year. Add the wondrous eyes of a two year old and there is a whole new level of magic to the season. The simplest joys light her up. Santa…not so much. But twinkle lights elicit oohs-and ahhs from the back seat and plenty of “it’s so…

Toffee Crack (it’s that addicting) :)

mmMMMmmm. I have been making exactly ONE thing this holidays. & this is it. I can’t be on my feet for that long (for a few pregnancy related reasons) so I’ve been keeping my extracurricular kitchen time to a minimum. This recipe’s process takes about 15 minutes start to finish. EASY. & the best part?…

Project 52:50 | limiting

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/80, ISO 6400 ••• Yep. It’s time. I am being forced to cut back on my not-a-lot-of-sleep-on-my-feet-all-day normal. I just can’t do it without someone getting the short end of the stick. & my girlie doesn’t need a cranky mommy. So…it’s time to take a breather. It’s been so dark & overcast around…

creativity & inspiration: my creative process + common barriers

By request, I thought I’d share some of the stuff that I threw up on the screen at my MOPS meeting this week. I spoke on Creativity & Inspiration and while I listed off bullet points that I wanted to touch on, I let the talk be it’s own organic self…moving where it went &…

Project 52:49 | uncomfortable

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/125, ISO 3200 ••• Well hello third trimester. & hello heartburn. Fatigue. Moodiness. Aches. Teeny bladder. Varicose veins where?! omg. Is it over yet? Nope. Not yet. If I’m lucky, I get 10 more weeks of this joy! I’m thankful for this pregnancy & comforted in knowing this will be my last. Yep….

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creativewhere I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is almost complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
