"Happiness is Cherry Pie" Sign
I'm a huge advocate of curating meaningful items to fill your home. These items should inspire you daily and speak to your soul (Hence, my blog name, Made Soulful). For example, I just finished up a sign for my kitchen, which you can see below, that says, "Happiness is Cherry Pie." This phrase carries special meaning to me.
In addition to being a craft DIYer, I'm also pretty good at making homemade pies. I got into making pies after my grandmother passed a few years ago. I have so many fond memories of her and I making pies together. So, I thought I would carry on the pie making legacy. It's been a great experience for me and my family to remember those we love and to create new memories together.
Cherry pies hold a special place in my heart because it's my husband’s and father's favorite dessert. It's the best feeling in the world to see the pure joy on their faces when I present them with a homemade cherry pie! So, I created a sign to adorn my kitchen to evoke this happy emotion every time I look at it. This example is the core of what I believe when it comes to DIY experiences. Surround yourself with things that represent who you are, what you love, and have fun in the process!

If anyone is interested, my sign was made with my favorite Martha Stewart Craft Multi-Surface Paint. I simply basecoated the sign wedding cake and wrote the words "Happiness is Cherry Pie" in pencil. Once I had everything centered, I went back and painted over it in gray and tartan red :-). For an added pop of color, paint sides tartan red as well! Easy as PIE!
