Look for my skirt kit featured in the new issue of BUST magazine! Click here to see the feature, and check out the skirt kit page to see all the shops and studios who are carrying it, too–including the Boobtique.
Also, I’ll be out of the studio from January 29-February 10. If you order skirt kits or books during that time, they’ll be shipped out within the week, but any jewelry orders will go out after February 10. Thanks!
If you’re interested in handmade treats in time for Christmas, Hanukkah, or the winter holiday of your liking, please order from susanstars by December 10. I’ll mail all orders out via priority mail by December 14. And as my present to you, I’ll
send along a surprise skirt ornament with any skirt kit you order–that’s 2 skirts for the price of 1!

For the next week (September 2 through 9), all susanstars jewelry sales will go directly to the Red Cross for hurricane relief on the Gulf Coast. I’ll cover shipping myself, so all of the money, including the automatic shipping costs PayPal adds, will go to the Red Cross as well.
Another great fundraiser to check out is Crafters United. Their shop on etsy.com has over a hundred gorgeous handmade items for sale benefiting the Red Cross too.
I have some new craft articles out - how to make bird appliqués in Venus and a jewelry how-to in BUST!
I’m going on a trip for three weeks—so you can go right ahead & order anything you want while I’m gone, but I won’t be able to ship your order out until May 27. I’ll be checking e-mail if you have any questions, though.
And look for updates in every department after I get back, including new jewelry colors & styles (here’s a sneak peek!), a new handbag collection, & a cool new skirt option.
