Halloween. The not-perfect kind.

Yesterday I had two choices:

(1) be the kind of mom who puts down the camera because her kid doesn’t look perfect

(2) be the kind of mom who sees the beauty, despite the imperfections. & captures it just the way it is.

I chose the latter. & now, we’ll remember…

the good. the bad.

& the effing mosquito.

Her costume was a complete DIY. She was a spider princess for under $20. & a sassy one, at that. :)

she held on for dear life–so concerned “bitsy spider WITH A PRETTY BOW” was going to fall off her back. :)

& what a contrast from last year. She was into us. Smiled. Squealed. Stayed put. This year…I could hardly keep up.

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.
