With festival season upon us, I am reminded of how I first started my hooping journey 5 years ago. I distinctly remember arriving that first year at Mountain Jam and seeing a girl carrying 10+ hula hoops over her shoulder. That was my very first introduction that weekend and I continued to be amazed at the beautiful hoopers I saw over the next 3 days. I will never forget this one girl. She was this beautiful, muscular Asian girl hooping on a cement block next to the main stage on the Mountain. She moved the hoop up and down her body so effortlessly throughout the whole set. I don’t even remember who was playing at the time because I was so mesmerized by her! From the moment I got home that weekend I was determined to find a hoop of my own and start hooping myself. I started with a crappy LED Walmart hoop and started researching hooping like crazy. That’s when I discovered Hooping.org and HoopCity and started making my own hoops!
Anyway, I’m sure you are here for the contest so let’s move on! For this hula hoop giveaway I want to know how YOU first discovered hooping! Where were you? Who influenced you?

As some of you may already know if you follow my Twitter or Facebook pages, I will be closing up my Etsy shop at the end of January for about 3 months. With a baby on the way (yay!) it is becoming more and more difficult to make hoops and keep up with orders so I will be on a temporary maternity leave from hoop making. I am hoping to have the shop up and running again by May (baby girl is due at the beginning of April), but we will see how that goes.
SO if you want to get yourself a HoopBunny hula hoop, now is the time to place your order! I will be be putting the shop in vacation mode on February 1st or whenever any remaining orders are filled.
I will keep you posted on the reopening of HoopBunny Hoops and thank you for all your business and support!
Happy hooping my bunnies xxox
