in my shoes | iPhoneography

I used to write in a journal. I still do, but it is different now. I write to my daughter. I write for her. I write so she can remember the times she won’t remember. I began doing this the day I found out I was expecting & plan to do this for her until she has children of her own. So she may someday take my thoughts, words and actions and laugh…cry…learn. I use these simple journals. I love them. Of course, hers are pink. Hot pink.

However, I do journal in my own way, just for me. I take pictures. Now that I have an iPhone, I have found myself taking pictures a lot more than I did before. I grab moments here & there that make me smile. Glimpses of beautiful in my otherwise hectic day. This is how I see my life. You can read below for words, or you can just enjoy the pictures. I like the pictures best. :D

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.
