Today, when I needed to smile the most, I got mail. Not just any mail, Studio Mela mail. & it is perfect.

Despite having the most emotionally taxing weekend of my life, I smiled. This is not a week that I am ever going to want to remember, but at least I can remember that the people I love, love me back. Struggles make us stronger & those we love help us heal. Thanks to all of you who have given me your support. As soon as I have the courage & answers I need to share what’s going on, I will. Until then…I am going to look at my beautiful daughter & loving husband & smile. Because love is EVERY SINGLE THING it is cracked up to be.

Happy Valentine’s Day. May yours be full of tight squeezes & smooches to remember. :)

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.
