they say go with your gut…

and my gut is speaking loudly.

Most of you know I recently relocated and am “in between” careers. I did everything I could to transfer with my previous job. It was great. Great company. Great products. Great colleagues. I just don’t think that my heart lies in selling drugs. I was good at it, but I think you can be good at anything if you try really hard. Doesn’t mean you’re gonna be happy.

My wonderful husband told me that I could do whatever I wanted to do when we got down here, as long as I did something so I didn’t go stir crazy. So here I am. Trying to find out what that something is. It’s exciting, it’s scary, it’s confusing. “Do whatever you want babe, I want you to be happy” but what will make me happy?!?

I have put the feelers out to see if there is a genuine need for color & decorative consulting and as it turns out, there certainly is! Just through my wonderful new network of military wives I have three interested “clients” that are inviting me into their homes. So…I am running with it. I am building my portfolio. (for free, so if you live in San Antonio and need some help with your home and are willing to let me take pictures, let me know!) Funny thing is, I don’t even consider it work…I am genuinely excited! I think that says something…

So I am running with it…as fast as I can.


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.
