Odds ‘n’ Ends…

Couple of things I wanted to point out:

  • scroll down & you will find two new colorful additions on the bottom right!
  • I now have a FAQ’s page
  • I added one more day of pictures in a slideshow format & blogging from the day at Neuschwanstein Castle to my previous Germany post (I know, so behind, just one more day left…the pictures are taking me FOREVER to get through!)

That should do it! House editing day three was today, one more load of stuff to donate and I am slooowly getting this place whipped into shape. Still have a few moving boxes three months later but overall the progress I’ve made here in three months is nothing short of a huge accomplishment, considering I have done every bit of unpacking, organizing & decorating myself.  I have two unoccupied rooms; plans for one and the other is a giant brainstorm…ideas running rampant…for now…trying not to make them a dumping ground for unnecessary stuff. I refuse to have anything here I dont need!

I found all my existentialism books today when I was searching for stuff to decorate bookshelves and came across this fabulous reminder, which is guiding every bit of my shopping since I got into this new home. I hope you find it as impactful as I do.

Simplify your life.

Do not devote your life to nonessentials or the acquisition of unnecessary possessions. Avoid clutter.

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.
