I do not have pretty hands. They are small. Chunky knuckled. Beaten, burned, cut, calloused & scraped. But I do a lot of things with my hands. & I’ll trade well worn hands for delicate pretty hands any day. Because I am not delicate. & I am proud of the hard work. & I am just not a girl that gets manicures…because they get ruined the same day…

(& yes, I am cheating this week. I took this picture two weeks ago. I am taking a “spring break” of sorts. Getting off the computer. Not around to upload. Out enjoying the sunshine. :) That’s why it’s been so quiet around here!)


& here are the links to some of you who are doing this with me! Be sure to let me know if I missed you by adding a comment to this post. I promise to add you, as long as you link me back!

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.
