Hey friends! I hope everyone has been enjoying our new series, "PARISH Picks"! We have loved having Meagan on board here and it is nice to have her feature PARISH items weekly! I was going to title this post, "Spring Cleaning", but that just seems plain wrong since it appears as though we have completely skipped past spring down here in Alabama and are currently experiencing summer!!!! Hello 90 degree days! With every new spring, comes fresh beginnings...it always seems like a good time to clean out those closets you've been avoiding for the last few months, organizing kitchen cabinets and bathrooms, deep cleaning those hard to reach spots in your house and the list goes on and on. I don't know about you, but when I've finished a spring cleaning project I feel like a brand new person. Most recently I cleaned off/out my desk and let me just tell you, I think I could have conquered the world when that chore was done! All of us over here at AFGID were in need of some "cleaning" as well. Yes--we cleaned out the studio (although the mess seemed to reappear after one day) and did a BIG sale at PARISH! BUT, we still felt as though more changes needed to take place. SO...we contacted a sweet friend by the name of Laura McCarty and she did a complete overhaul on our logo! We love our new look and we know you will too!

Laura is seriously talented!!!![/caption] [caption id="attachment_8492" align="alignnone" width="620"] Here is an up close![/caption] [caption id="attachment_8493" align="alignnone" width="620"] This seal is one of our favorite designs![/caption] Our new "look" is super exciting and in a way it seems as though it gave our creative juices a little boost of energy! Working with Laura was so much fun and we can't wait to use her again in the future! Did we mention everything she specializes in??! Paper, florals, and design and styling! Head over to her site now and take a look! We're sure you will fall in love as we have! We hope this post inspires you to clean something out or make a big change to better yourself! We promise it will leave you feeling like a brand new person!! Until next time!
