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:

Of course, the end of one contest brings the start of another. As you are no doubt aware, winter is coming -- or so I’ve been told. What better way to celebrate the encroaching chill than by gearing up with some accessories? We’re looking for any accessories appropriate for cold weather: cozy scarves, earmuffs, hats, anything of the sort! The winners will help their fellow Gaians bundle up against the cold by having their ideas transformed into amazing new items.
The contest will be open from September 25th until October 25th. For the full rules and details, visit the contest page:
