Aha, a timely update to CrosStitch! Just as the stitch-swelling spring showers begin to pelt me, I’ve found this fine assortment of rain gear designed by Gaia’s finest creative minds. Have a look at the winners of our Rainy Day contest:

Visit my shop to pick one of these cute items up for yourself! You can also find more new rain gear over at the Jock Strap, so be sure to pay Liam a visit.

Meanwhile, here's a brand new opportunity to showcase your creative powers: the Original Characters contest! Just send me a sketch of your own personally-created character’s signature item. Remember: this has to come from your own creative mind, so don’t submit items based on your favorite anime series, video game, etc. Good luck!

Our latest batch of CrosStitch contest winners showcase the boundless creativity of the Gaia community-- even more so than usual, I dare say! This time, it was all about showing off your brilliant original characters and showcasing their signature items. We have a lovely batch of winners, all of which have been lovingly converted into Gaia items.

You can find all these items at my shop, CrosStitch. Stop by and celebrate the artistic genius of your fellow Gaians by grabbing one of these unique treasures today!

Meanwhile, we're officially opening another CrosStitch contest to let you show off a whole new side of your creative mind... a darker side! Since our next round of winners will be emerging near the start of October, we thought we'd solicit your spookiest creations: design the finest and most fiendish Halloween garment or accessory, and we'll transform it into a gruesome Gaia item!

You'll have a little bit more time than usual to prepare your entry: this contest will be open from June 26th to July 26th. For the full rules and details, visit the contest page:
