Project 52:45 | goal-oriented

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/100, ISO 1600 ••• I’m not quite sure how to describe how I am feeling other than to say it’s a lot like the feeling I had the day before I gave birth: nervous. excited. anxious. ready. accomplished. fulfilled. at peace. All of those things & more. This is the week before one…

baby steps, baking & the styleberry brand journey

You can gauge the state of my mental health by the amount that I bake. No joke. When I am seeking clarity I reach for flour, butter, sugar & the stand mixer. Baking is a very peaceful thing for me. Cooking is a necessity. Baking is therapeutic. Plus, then I get to make someone smile,…

on blogging. & business.

Every so often, a series of events seem to occur & force me to stop what I am doing & really think about my intentions. I am having one of those moments. It started when I read a post from the mom who quit blogging. Then an officer came to speak to my mops group…

mama the night owl | how to survive

Ok. So if you follow me on facebook, you know that I often update at 2am. I am crazy like that. My brain doesn’t start really going until about 10pm…& my productive (for-mama-only) hours are 10pm-2am. You read that right. That is my very precious chunk of the day when everyone is sleeping & I…

just a mom. but not really.

Stepping away from my computer makes my mind spin. I wind up with so many thoughts of things that might be good topics to share here. I write in my head. Right now, more than anything, mothering is atop my list of thoughts, struggles & challenges. Seems as though I am not alone. Your feedback…

life. right now.

I’ve been debating whether or not to post this. I decided that I would because this is real. This is me. The blogs I follow diligently have real women behind them that reveal more than just the ‘tip of the iceberg.’ The pretty package tied with a bow that a blog can showcase is an…

It’s never too late?

I have wrestled with what this post should say for several months now. I am not sure this is all going to come out exactly right, but it’s coming out nonetheless. That’s what blogs are for, after all. Getting to know the person behind the business. Not just the business in front of the person….

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.
