A day of mourning…

Okay, so maybe I am being a little over dramatic (I blame my newly raging hormones) but a sad day it is. I am a magazine-a-holic. I read them constantly and am so inspired by new trends, current products available in the marketplace and the glossy pictures of so many fabulous ideas. Three of my most loved magazines are now calling it quits in this tough economy and I feel like three good friends have died. First it was Blueprint, Martha’s take on young hip design. I still have every single issue. Then it was Cottage Living, my go to source for making small spaces work. I haven’t yet thrown many of those out either. But yesterday, my FAVORITE magazine, the one that I have four years worth of subscriptions for, of which I will not part with a single issue, that I read as soon as it comes in the mail, is sadly biting the dust too. My beloved Domino Magazine, the design source that hit exactly my demographic cannot continue.  What will I do now? Elle Decor & House Beautiful just aren’t the same as my modern, young, fresh Domino. If I have a son, my son’s room will be a product of a very inspiring spread from the November issue. The art in that room will come from an old issue of Blueprint. My future daughter’s room will be directly inspired by the many shades of damask printed all throughout my Domino. It makes me so very sad.

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.
