New Hoops for New Hoopers!

Hey all, I hope everyone had a hoopy Easter! hehe Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I had a great holiday with my bf’s family and even did some hooping together! I have also been selling lots of HoopBunny hoops in the past week. The first one was a custom made zebra print hoop, my 3rd zebra print combo so far. Take a look!

I haven’t made HoopBunny business cards yet because I would like to have a logo made first. So instead, I attached a little makeshift card to the hoop with my name and the URLs to the various HoopBunny pages like this one, the HoopBunny Hoops shop, and the new Facebook fan page (which you should go “Like” btw!). I accidentally attached my “first draft” of the tag first and forgot to take a picture of the one I actually used (oops!), but you’ll get the general idea!

2 of my other hoops went to new hoopers! I think they were hooked after our little hooping sesh Saturday afternoon 🙂

I like to call this one the VeryBerry hoop. It is made with 3/4 in. 100 psi tubing, purple duct tape, purple vinyl tape, and white vinyl tape.

I like this one because it’s so bright! The orange tape is actually black light reactive so it will glow under the black light. This hoop is also made with 3/4 in. 100 psi tubing, fluorescent orange gaffer tape, and teal duct tape.

The zebra print hoop will be the next listing in the HoopBunny Hoops shop. I also will be adding a listing for completely customized hoops soon so keep checking back!

Happy Hooping! xo

I plan on putting a listing for my custom hoops too, but that will come a little later on. I hope you enjoy my new shop!

Happy Hooping 🙂


Excuses, Excuses

I know I have been neglecting my blog pretty badly lately. I have been SUPER busy with work stuff, vacations, etc. and having to come up with and teach a hoop fitness class in such a short period of time REALLY stressed me out. So anyway let me explain a bit…

Hoop2It fitness class is no longer. It was sort of sprung on me without any type of notice or planning so it was almost set to fail from the get-go. There was a lot of miscommunication and misunderstandings that got in the way of its success. What I had originally intended to do at Maximum Fitness was to have an hour or so set aside so that hoopers could get together and just hoop with others. I thought this “hoop jam” idea would be good for the winter since the weather is preventing us from getting outside and playing or working out with our hoops. As the word was spread to others at the gym it turned into more of an aerobics class, which I tried, but wasn’t appealing to the other hoopers that had been interested in my original plan. It was stressing me out having to plan a class (I am not in any way an aerobics instructor!) and trying to get people to attend the class. The timing of 9am on Saturdays was not ideal and I was told the women who had been attending the aerobics class were interested in trying my hooping class. This was not the case. Stressing about this class caused me to not want to do anything hoop related really because it seemed more like something I had to do than something I wanted to do. So now I am focusing on my hoop practice and hoop making so I can start selling my hoops again.

Another source of stress I have had for the past month or so was the Google Analytics certification test that I had to take for work. I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Google Analytics, but let me tell you it was NOT fun! I am not very tech savvy so it was a lot of learning for me. But last weekend I finally passed the GA test with a 90%! Woohoo! So now that the major stressors have been removed from my life (with the exception of having to work overtime for new Google Analytics and social media projects at work) I can focus more on my little website and building my Etsy site which I have been talking about doing FOREVER now. But really I am working on it! My major issue is that I have no graphic design skills whatsoever and I can’t even figure out how to fit a picture to the Etsy banner. ugh. This may take a little while so keep an eye out for HoopBunny Hoops on Etsy!

Later gators xxox
