& yes, it is totally out of focus. which happens sometimes when you use self timers on couch cushions & the camera moves. whoopsie. but I don’t care. still love it.


I’m a pretty happy mom. We maintain a pretty loving home. As a result, I have a pretty happy & very loving daughter who amazes me with her sweetness every day. She is definitely a little spitfire, but she is just as loving as they come. She’s all about giving kisses & hugs right now, and I can’t even begin to explain how warm & fuzzy that makes me feel.

I was reading an article in Kiwi Magazine this week (it’s one of my faves) and found my new favorite quote on parenting. Now I have got to read the book that the quote came from…in all my spare time. Why, oh why, must the internet steal me from books?! Well, it does, but this quote is going to live on my pinboard above my desk as a friendly reminder. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

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 Creative where 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 now 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.
