hoopin' holiday love!!!

hey all hoopers, and future hoopers....(i know you are out there!)
i have had the privilege of opening my arms wide open to hoop making. i LOVE it! i love every bit of it from beginning to end! i get giddy every time i get a new shipment of shiny new hoop tape in, and something tells me i always will!

so i wanted to list a few of my old and new creations here for perusing! hoops make great presents, they are inexpensive, classic toys that get kids and adults up and off the couch!!!! the homemade hoops of today aren't your average toy store hula hoops. they are made of denser tubing, hand taped, and no two are alike! A lot of time and love go into each hoop. Not to mention the huge amount of gratitude that i have every time get to make someone their own one of a kind hoop.

if you see one you would like please follow the facebook link to the right and send me a message. if you dont have a facebook account you can contact me at morninglilli@yahoo.com.
for the holidays my kids hoops start at $15 and vary according to decorative tapes
adult hoops start at $25 and vary according to tapes and collapsibility. (all hoops that are shipped will need to be collapsible to keep shipping down).

looking for something with some christmas flair?

or maybe something a little flashy....

you can also incorporate fancy ribbons!!!

or make it glow in the dark!!!

a special something for a special someone....

and all hoops come tagged and decorated with a little something from my craft nook!

i have all sorts of colors and can make your hoop in any size, even custom make one for your experience level.

all hoops come with 2 hoop tape colors, and a grip tape standard.
extra hoop tape colors or grip tape are $2.00 a color.
sparkle tapes are $5 extra on small hoops, $7.50 on larger hoops.
glow in the dark strips are 4 for a $1.00
full glow hoops are $15 extra.
to make any hoop collapsible is only $5.00 (this makes for cheaper shipping, and easy storage and travel!)
with every hoop comes a card with my personal youtube channel web address, where i regularly post short tutorials to help you with hoop technique and tips for hoop fitness.

thanks to all for the support that has already come from all over the place!

who are you in the hoop?

i love to role play in my hoop dance time. the perfect song + a different you= beautiful things. you get to step out for a bit, see things from a new perspective, move differently than you normally would, and focus on something other than your day to day.
today in my short hoop time i was enjoying one of sigur ros' older albums, and i was transported......i became a tribal hunter and the hunted all at the same time.....my hoop, a bow, my hoop, my camouflage. it was what it needed to be during the dance.
if i am not feeling very graceful i can dance like i am a clumsy two left footed lump, and it starts to feel right. why not flow with how you feel? instead of putting the hoop down, just go with it, you never know where you body may take you today.

support.....we needs it!

if there is one thing so far on my hoop journey that has pushed me further, made me go deeper, and taught me more, it is SUPPORT!
if it wasnt for a sweet friend showing me the awesomeness that is hooping, then sending me my first hoop i never would have started on this path. i have needed my family, my husband who is okay with his wife stepping out for an hour or more most nights to crank up the music in the back yard and dance like a wild woman (he says the pleasure is all his :). ) i have needed my friends who show so much encouragement and excitement when i get all geeky about my hoops, and who even have been so courageous as to try new things with me! i have needed the people who got excited with me and come out weekly to dance in the dark! i need the new friends who have trusted me enough to give me the absolute pleasure of making hoops just for them! the thought of being a part of their special hoop time fills me up to the top. i have needed the friends and family who stand behind me when i say i want to teach this beautiful art!

i am finding that the hooping community is chocked full of beautiful people who are pretty much knit together with the love of movement, a simple plastic hoop, and the support of people who understand it. once again, i am overwhelmed with the prospects of what hooping has, and can bring into revolutions in my life, physically and metaphorically.

so please be encouraged, we are here, we understand! go get that hoop on! find that flow! spin to your bliss!
