this much [17 mos] | Personal Project

This month has been a month full of of imitation. This girl does everything I do. Right down to the inflection in my voice. She may look just like her father, but she is ALL ME. Heaven help me. I know what kind of dramatic teenager I was.

She is stirring pots. & kissing babies. & giving “loves” to rusty boy with a pat, pat, pat. Her fuse is SHORT. (can’t imagine where that came from.) & I find her wandering off to quiet when she is in busy social situations. She has very definite opinions & knows exactly what she wants. & what she doesn’t. & what she doesn’t want is to wear any other shoes but these owl shoes. She grabs them from her shoe drawer every day & brings them to me saying “whooo whoooo” and then tries to put them on herself. I melt every time. :) It’s adorable.

My little helper spent a couple long mornings without me when my parents were in town. My dad & I tackled the construction of my fun feature wall in the playroom & my mom took care of the babes. She liked to come out & see what I was doing every so often. & of course, she wanted to dive right in. I figure it’s never too early to let a girl get her paint on.

This image is courtesy of my hubby (!!). We are putting the final coat on 12 foot picture ledges that span wall to wall above the 4 ft high magnetic chalkboard paneled wall, that also runs wall to wall. It’s perfect. I love it. I just need to order the images. BIG images. :):):)

Now who is still with me? Link below if you are joining me in this project! It’s never too late to come along for the ride…’cause every mama needs pictures of her & her babe.

I am contemplating doing Project 52…a weekly image project. I am not sure I can commit. Thinking about it…anyone else doing it?

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.
