Jane LaFazio here. Here they are! The prayer flags created by people from all over the world, (many of them contributors to this blog) ready to be hung at the Oceanside Museum of Art! Here is the call to artists......and you can still send in flags. They said they would keep hanging them as they come in! The flags will hang from October 14 through December 31, 2012.

Tea and Comfort

Jamie Fingal - sometimes in life tea is the most comforting thing.  It is so soothing.  Wishing you comfort when you need it most.

My prayer flags on the wall in my new studio.  I've got a nice collection going and I think they watch over me.

Peace for Children

Marilou Bain joins us with "Peace" and the Prayer is for Peace for Children prayer flag. She writes "I am a Grandmother and I would like to pray for Peace for all the children of the world and my grandchildren. It was created with a vintage image from the Graphics Fairy printed on fabric and hand stitched onto old scrap of fabric, trimmed in miscellaneous rayon hand-dyed seam binding, velvet millinery flower, rick rack and hand beaded with the word Peace beaded onto a scrap of sari silk, more beading and  a heart charm."

Juliet Ayer writes: "This is the new Prayer Flag for my friend Andy. He has one more week of radiotherapy to go for his prostate cancer, and is having a check-up tomorrow for his non-Hodgkins lymphoma which he is worried about, even though last time the specialist wasn't concerned at all. I know that he's getting a bit down about it all, and want him to keep believing that everything will be fine in the end, and that he will get better."

grace + open ness

it's been a while since i posted a flag.  but a swap at "the trodden path" got me going again.  i sometimes switch mediums and participate in lots of challenges so get side tracked sometimes.

i also read about the oceanside museum exhibition coming up in october and wanted to contribute to it too, so pulled out some unfinished fabric collages and completed it just in the nick of time.   this is the one i'll be submitting to the museum.

may all beings be safe

May all beings ... 5 flags
Donna Johnson joins us and writes "There are 5 flags in this series; text asks "may all beings be loved, well, safe, happy, or loving of themselves". The flags were deliberately made of simple, rapidly degrading materials so that they will return to the earth soon after their prayers are lifted into the universe."
May all beings be loved

Jane Eileen writes "I wanted to keep mine simple and straightforward. The reason I chose this theme besides the fact that I am hopelessly addicted to heart shapes in my art is that when I thought about what I could send out into the world, all this just added up.
The world needs more love."

from the Netherlands

prayer flags for the blog
Mini Rijsdijk-Gaal from the The Netherlands writes "I make a series prayer flags of all the important people in my life who always prayed for me. Always!I 'm missing my mother and my best friend because they are in heaven. But their prayers remain with God and He will take care of me now!  
I feel it like a blessing to make these flags for myself and for my children. 
The will be in my heart . ...forever and ever!"

prayer flags for the blog

Susan Strachan Johnson writes "This is my prayer flag. It is inspired by the works of Gregg Braden (The Divine Matrix) and A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, and will be included in my next art show. When my friend Leanne told me about your project I suddenly understood why I had to make this. I am recovering from heart disease, and learning that I need to be more loving. Thank you for starting this project. This flag, which is made entirely from recycled materials, is how hanging in our veranda."
