As you may recall, a bit of anger came up on these pages last week, and I decided to ‘make’ something out of it. (Ha! I crack myself up.)
The “Can Your Anger” pious project!
I recycled an empty coffee container into my own version of a ‘miracle can’ and have named it “Can Your Anger.” I filled it with flowers, and it now serves as a silent prayer that all anger be transformed into love.
As promised, here is a photo of my “Can Your Anger” Miracle Can with instructions for your to make your own!


Supplies:
White Gesso (primer) * 2 small Foam Brushes – 1/2 inch size (or any brush) * Paint (of any color of kind you have) * Craft Glue * Photograph of a figure that represents love, peace and tranquility * water * flowers
Instructions:
Paint your empty can with a coat of white gesso, which is the same thing as primer. It creates a “tooth” on your can, so that it will hold the paint (no flaking!). I use small foam brushes, because they are cheap and can easily be thrown out. (I appreciate fast clean up.) * After the primer dries, put on a layer of paint (acrylic is fine; or even house paint) – color of your choosing. * When dry, paste on picture that you resonate with. My picture is a combination of a sunflower and Our Lady of Weight Loss; a mighty that I put together. * Fill with water. * Add beautiful flowers. * Feel empowered!
You just created your first “Can Your Anger” Miracle Can!
What do you do with your anger? How do you ‘can’ it?

    Thanks for sharing that you did in fact get angry (understandably so) and how you dealt with it! Anger for me has traditionally been just one more reason to skip exercising and increase calories. I will make my own “Can my Anger” miracle can today!

    Anger makes me want to eat SO BADLY! But if I do something with my hands it really helps- whether crafts or knitting- I channel all that negative energy into something great and I feel a whole lot better. Keep your blog coming Janice, it continues to inspire me and I look forward to the posts every day. Thanks, Karen
