3. what is your favorite book?
i love the pink carnation series by lauren willig

4. show us your favorite craft project.
well, it was kind of a bunch of projects combined into one, but i had a blast designing and crafting for my friend's bachelorette party! which you can read about here: 
these fringed bags were so fun and super easy to make! my dear friends and family members should expect many repeats in the future. :)

5. if you could only watch one tv show for the rest of your life what would it be?
ummm,,,the first 5 seasons of the office. hands down,,,it never stops being funny.

6. what is your current goal in life?
my current goal is to start my own business: gracefully made designs
i am getting closer, and hopefully i'll have more on this goal to share soon!

7. if you could do anything knowing you wouldn't fail what would it be?
this goes along with number 6, but i'd probably quit my real job and design and craft full time. that would be amazing! my heart would probably explode with happiness.

8. what led you to decide on a career goal? if you haven't decided yet, what made you decide on your college major?
i attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a marketing degree. now, i work in professional services marketing, so a big part of my job is helping people communicate and connect with their clients. i love working with people and i love getting to be sort of creative at work!

9. what is your favorite part about blogging?
i love getting to share parts of my life with friends and family! life gets so busy, so this is a great way for me to keep everyone in the loop so they can know what is going on in our lives! 

10. why did you start a blog?
well, i was reading the beth moore book "so long insecurity", and i decided that i needed to do something that required me to be brave and step out of my comfort zone. plus, i love to write and create, so this seemed like a perfect fit. then tadaaaa! the gracefully made blog was born.

11. share your favorite recipe! 
this is my newest favorite chicken recipe, super easy and sooo yummy!
thanks for thinking of me erin!

happy saturday everyone!


  1. Beth Moore's So Long Insecurity is one of my favorite books. It's currently in rotation with my friends. :)

  2. Number five on your facts is my favorite! I'm currently working my way through Dawson's Creek! :)

  3. Awe, YAY!!! You deserve it too. Since meeting you last week, I have loved going through post and reading along. I love Beth Moore. And, the design business-Wahoo! Def. go for it. <3 I'm a Marketing major too. ;)
    I hope your weekend is going lovely!

  4. I love cookie dough, but have no trouble passing on cookies!
    I'll definitely be checking out the Pink Carnation series

  5. I can also watch The Office over and over and over. My husband I watch it so much that we insert quotes from the show into our daily life (causing many odd stares from non Office obsessed people.) For example today at my nephews birthday party a group of us were discussing birds and my sister in law states how she had a bird; someone chimes in "birds are so dirty" and i state "You can't get diseases from a bird!" Hilarity ensues for my husband and I; everyone else stares blankly at me wondering "is she serious?"



  6. We have a ton in common!! :) Good luck with the crafting journey, that'd be so great for you to have a career doing something you absolutely love, and are really good at. ;)

  7. I didn't know that is why you started your blog, that is AWESOME. Beth Moore rocks!! :)
    That chicken recipe looks delicious....yummm.
    And for gracefully made designs you can count me in to promote you like crazy! :)

  8. I love Beth Moore! I haven't read that book, I'll have to check it out. Love your blog, new follower!
