Another Blog

It's true...I have decided to open up a new blog!! It's not that I don't love this one, because I DO! (Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, too...) BUT, I have now decided that I will SPLIT up this blog and keep all of my family stuff on here, and all of my "Design" stuff on my new one!! It's! So go take a look! And as a teaser of things that I've done for that blog, here are two things I've designed recently! Enjoy!

This one above is about a new Calendar I just designed!! It's to help raise money for Greg and I when we go on our internship this summer (hopefully to New York, where EVERYTHING (except street vendor hot dogs) are expensive!!)! So thank you for considering purchasing one from us, we REALLY appreciate it!! You can see more details here.

This design above is what I send to people when I repost someone else's design work! So, technically that's just what I did, so here it is! To go to my other blog, click here. Tell me what you think! Thanks!!

Christmas from the Dean of Students

I had another design project that I totally loved! It is for the Dean of Students here at BYU with an event they do every year called the Bread & Jam Open House! It's for all the students and volunteers who work under the Dean of Students and it's just a chance for us to meet him and hang out with our fellow peers while eating delicious breads and jams from Great Harvest! Yum! So I'm way excited about the EVENT, and then that I also got to do the design! Take a look!

This One Goes Out to You, Babe!

Greg, this one goes out to you! I am SO LUCKY to have you in my life! You are such a blessing to me! I love you so much and I don't want anything to EVER EVER come between us! I love you way too much! I read this quote by Spencer W. Kimball today that was beautiful and wonderful and it made me think of you!

"We need an unspoiled companion who will not count our wrinkles, remember our stupidities nor remember our weaknesses; . . . we need a loving companion with whom we have suffered and wept and prayed and worshiped; one with whom we have suffered sorrow and disappointments, one who loves us for what we are or intend to be rather than what we appear to be in our gilded shell."

I love you so much and you are so important to me. Thank you so much for being there for me even when I am stupid, silly, or annoying.

And folks, look how handsome my husband is! I am the luckiest girl in the world because I have the hottest, funniest, funnest, bestest at everything husband ever!

I love you, Gregory Gale Bullock.

Is your workspace as terribly DRAB as mine? I feel like my creativity just gets sucked out of me!! But here are some workspaces I found on Design*Sponge that are WONDERFUL and INSPIRING!! And I'm going to work to change my personal workspace, and I suggest you take a few minutes to spruce yours up, too! Here are so


Here are two more designs I've done for Campus Life Design! I love these two, they're very different, but they both make draw you in for different reasons! :-)

Christmas, again!

I am in charge of this year's Christmas Invitation for the Dean of Students, himself! Yes, we're talking about President Samuelson!! Booya! I love my job! This is the cover of the invite, and I'm diggin it! What do you think? The larger type on this card is from Jessica Hiche (an AMAZING graphic designer! And here is her BLOG.) and is called Buttermilk. SUCH a perfect name for this beautiful typeface! Love it!

ALSO, just to mention...I'm going to be selling a calendar for 2011! It'll be custom-designed by yours truly and will be adorable! So keep that in mind and I'll be showing the design and the details for it shortly!

I have decided to do my blog in a more structured way! So I am starting....DRUMROLL, please.......TYPE TUESDAY! I know for most of you that sounds pretty dull, but I promise, type has a GIGANTIC influence on the world! And I am trying to learn more and be a better typeface-r. So, please allow me to show you what I learn EACH Tuesday. Deal? So for my first entry, I worked on some hand-drawn type and this is just a scan from my sketchbook. Hopefully we'll be able to see an improvement after awhile. Probably a few years or so. Anyway, welcome to Type Tuesday!

Christmas Already??

YEP! You heard right!! I am ALREADY thinking of Christmas!! It's not even HALLOWEEN yet! And what am I doing to myself?? That is a fabulous question, and I DO know why! It's because I stumbled upon this BEAUTIFUL, hand-done, contemporary calligraphy made into a stamp! It's SO STUNNING and it got me extremely excited about Christmas! Now that I'm married, I officially have permission from the world to send out an adorable Christmas card to my friends and family, YAY!!

So, I'm already looking into beautiful stamps to use for our return address that is as beautiful as these from Primele's Shop.

What is your address so I can send one to YOU? Please email it to me at augustthirteenth(at)gmail(dot)com.

Spruce It Up!

Okay, so I just found this pilot episode of Spruce TV from Spruce Upholstery and LOVED it! I know my mom would do this with me, but would anyone else want to, too? I think it sounds like so much fun!! And secretly, I want to go to Austin to take a class from them!! I think that'd be awesome! Look at some of the beautiful furniture they've "spruced up" below! SOO ADORABLE!! And if anyone knows about any upholstery classes in Provo, let me know!!

God's Definition of Beauty

Heavenly Father defines beauty as an inner beauty that radiates outward. This kind of beauty cannot be faked. It cannot be created by lights, photoshop, or any other means. Inner beauty only comes from a righteous, modest, divine son or daughter of God who keeps the commandments of God. One who has inner beauty should let that exquisite light shine out to share with others. Something as simple as a smile has the ability to lighten up the room. God loves all of his children and sees each and every person as beautiful. However, if we do not believe it in ourselves, our light will not shine. BELIEVE in yourself and that you, YES YOU, are beautiful. No matter what. And staying close to our Heavenly Father will make that beauty and light even brighter. And God loves you. No matter what. Never forget it.

My Body

I am grateful for my body. It is a gift from God and I am so privileged to have it. It does so many things! It dances, it sings, laughs, heals itself, ponders and thinks, shivers, feels the warmth of the sun, grows, creates beautiful things, brings little children into the world (not for a few years though), it sees, smells, feels, can walk and run, hear wonderful music, and contribute to this world. I am so lucky to have this amazing gift that is my body. It inspires. I am so grateful for my body and all that it can do.

ANYONE Can Create

I LOVE this video because it reminds me that everyone has the capacity to create. We are on this earth to improve, cultivate, beautify, smile, and create. Each person must do what they can and not let critics pull them down. You are special and you CAN make a difference in this world. Create.

New York Part 1

I AM GOING TO NEW YORK! Yep, that's right, I'm going to New York!! How exciting is that?? I'm going in the winter with my BFA Junior class and I'm SO excited! I decided to make a list of things that I want to look forward to when I go, and this is ONE of the many!!


I REALLY wanna go to this place, Paper Love because it looks FANTASTIC! However, it is closing down this month! But I am pretty much obsessed with paper, and this store looks ADORABLE, so I NEED to find places just like it so I can come home with cute paper "stuff!"

THERE ARE SO many things that have happened to me in the last little while, I can't believe I haven't mentioned all of that, but I just wanted to keep you all in the loop (the quick version) :-)


There is a HUGE game coming up, it's the BYU at Florida State game and it'll be intense!! So BYUSA is hosting lunch for students to come watch the game!! It will be intense and I'm SO EXCITED for it! So if you are a BYU fan and want to have free lunch, and wanna be surrounded by other hyped up BYU fans, come to this HEAD TO HEAD BATTLE of skill, blood, sweat, grunts, and happiness, but only for the BYU fans, because we're going to WIN! I made this poster for it, as well! It was a stressful project and I finished all the versions of it in a DAY, but it turned out well!

ANYWAY, COME TO THE GAME! Come meet me and Greg there if you need some friends :-)
