It’s been a quiet week here on the blog, but not in real life. The next couple of weeks are going to be really busy for me, so if it’s a little slow here, just know more is coming…

I don’t have help. I don’t want help. My little girl is by my side every day of every week. & right now, nap times aren’t always long enough to get chores & a blog article written. Recently, evenings have actually included a husband present & I am not taking it for granted. I am getting off the computer and enjoying it. My current bedtime is 10pm (eep…buh bye four hours of productivity) but my nightowl self can’t exist if I want to both grow a baby and be a good mommy. Both activities require sleep, I am learning. Which is not something I am used to getting, or needing, so much of.

This age–two–is amazing. Sooner than later I will say goodbye a couple days a week. & I won’t have this time with just my girl. So I’m taking it & not forcing anything else; the blog gets attention when I have the time–which is the reason I have yet to take on advertising & other projects that require me to write. I do it when I want to & can. My little girl is becoming exactly who I am to her, and I can’t miss this. Not a second. :)

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.
