Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap! Sign-ups are open until June 22nd.  PM the organizers the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims.  Please make sure you are not late in any of your other swaps before committing to this one.

To join this round you must be cleared in all Ongoing Hoopla Swaps through Round 1 (except for international delivery).  You also cannot join this swap if you are currently late in Round 1. Do not join this swap if you are late in other swaps.  Please make those swaps your priority.


HOW THIS SWAP WORKS:

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have three weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a hoopla that has not been received; when that hoopla is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 2 or 3.) If, at any point, you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

FOCs are allowed to make a maximum of 3 outstanding claims.
Non-FOCs are allowed to make a maximum of 2 outstanding claims.
First time swappers are allowed to make a maximum of 1 outstanding claim.

Posting of received hooplas is required for this swap.


CLAIMING

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer closes out the claiming part of the swap and continues this swap in the next round starting in the next month.

2. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. The send by date (three weeks from the date the claim is made)
3. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the hooplas received by the people you've sent them to.

Formatted thusly (claims outstanding/claims sent/claims received)

4. Your location.
5. Your personal preferences.
6. Your list of themes.
7. *Optional* Any wist or pininterest that would be relevant.

ONCE YOU HAVE MADE A CLAIM:


1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address
2. You have 3 weeks to complete each hoopla (equivalent to at least a medium or 2 hours in crafting time), and have it in the mail to its new owner. You cannot have more than your maximum allotted claims outstanding (3 for FOC, 2 for non-FOC, 1 for new swappers)

ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A HOOPLA

1. Please PM the organizers and claimer/claimee when you send or receive a hoopla.
2.  Label the message as Ongoing Hoopla Swap Sent or Received,
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3) who sent it


POSTING PICTURES
It is very important to post pictures of what your receive! We want to see all the amazing hooplas. Feedback will reflect if pictures are not posted. Please make sure to make arrangements if you will have issues posting pictures.


FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the hooplas you sent have been received.   Good communication is vital and will be noted in feedback.


ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizers.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

Hello! I'm Zidisha, and I'm in Georgia. I've recently dedicated a full wall to hoopla and would love the help of you wonderful craftsterers to help me fill it out! Since I'm on my summer break from college, I have plenty of time to have movie/show marathons and stitch up lovliness.

I'm pretty easy to please, and love a variety of styles. My favorite things are probably pop culture references, text, graphic, vintage/retro, and humor. I'm okay with any size/shape; I like variety.

As far as colors, there aren't any I don't like, but my faves are dark purple, grey, mustard yellow, and aqua-teal-turquoise-seafoam type colors. I'd love if the background fabric wasn't white/beige/etc., but if that works for your design idea, then by all means go for it!!

Themes:
-Soviet Russia / USSR
-one of these films:
   -Lars and the Real Girl
   -American Beauty
   -Little Miss Sunshine
   -Rent!
-anything Glee!! My fave characters as far as quotes are Sue and Brittany/Santana
-something inspired by my wists or etsy faves
-Watchmen (I especially love Dr. Manhattan)
-Dexter (the TV show)
-musicals (Wicked, Chicago, or Zanna, Don't!)
-silly humour
-Catholic saints
-tarot cards

I claim meganlorraine for a wist inspired hoop.

Send by June 21



1 claims outstanding, 0 in transit, 0 claims received


Hiya everyone! I'm T! I live in GA with my husband and 2 kidlets. I'm a high school Spanish teacher who crafts to keep her sanity.

I am not picky about size nor type of hoop that you may send me. I have tons of info about my likes/dislikes in my profile as well as So You Want to Swap? page on my blog. I'm the chatty type so if you have any questions, feel free to send me a quick PM!

PLEASE, no profanity or Day of the Dead stuff!

My Wist!

My Shiny New Pinterest!


My Themes
1. Celtic knotwork - pure knotwork, not zoomorphs (twisted animals/humans) which get kind of creepy

2. anything Japanese - My bathroom is decorated in a Japanese themes. Maybe something like a geisha, samurai, koi or kanji

3. something inspired by hispanic cultures for decorating my classroom. For example, I already have a Flamenco dancer and a hoop with the Aztec sun god.   (Please no Day of the Dead stuff. My admins don't quite understand this concept so I have to be very careful about what I use.)

4. Nature - I LOVE trees and clouds, not so much into the cutesified animals though.

5. Garden gnomes

6. Constellations - My favorite one is Orion.

7. Mythological creatures - Pegasus, Dragon, Unicorn, Hydra

8. Something Pink, Sparkly and Princess for my daughter's room - She is 5 and quite the little Diva. She has claimed a couple of my latest hoops for her own little hoopla wall. (My DD is receiving one of these from last round, but I know she'd love more! Cheesy )

9. My favorite quote - "Be the change that you want to see in the World." - M. Ghandi

10. a hummingbird, a hawk or a cardinal

11. a cat sleeping in an odd position...you'd have to see how my cat Raven sleeps...crazy furchild!

12. something inspired by my Wist

Alright take two at claiming for this swap  Embarrassed Roll Eyes

SO, I claim ZidishaLuxe, for a Soviet Russia/USSR hoop that I am WAY TOO EXCITED ABOUT. I totally geeked out at all the possibilities for this!!

Send by June 22

1/0/0

And to introduce myself, I am Jenny and I'm in North Carolina. I'm also easy to please and most likely I'll be quite happy with whatever you decide to make!! Just no profanity/obscenity, please. I like bright, bold colors, nothing dark, and nothing too pastel. I really can't think of a favorite, but my current color scheme tends to be yellow, deep reds, teal, and greens. Don't feel confined to that, though! any shape or size will do, I'm not picky! Styles I like are pretty varied, but to name a few: vintage or retro, Art Nouveau, Gothic/Medieval, some kind of cutesy/silly stuff, but not really into the whole pink-and-sparkly breed of cutesy.

Themes:
-Russian and eastern European Folk Art (Pysanky Eggs, Wycinanki paper cuttings, matroyska dolls...)
-Pre-Raphaelite Arts and Crafts Style Designs (William Morris and etc)
-Gothic art and architecture, illuminated manuscripts, medieval stained glass
-Fairy tales, Folk tales, children's poems and stories
-Birds (favorites being bluebirds, quail, owls, peacocks...)
-cooking and kitchen


Thanks, looking forward to this!! feel free to offer suggestions or just come up with something else altogether, as I said I'm sure i will love it!

I claim R0ck0on for Gothic art and architecture!  - I love a theme that will make me research!

I'm Anna.  I live in California.  I'm passionate about my career in the museum world!  Cutesy isn't quite my style, but pretty is.  Although I never shy away from the grotesque!

I love color, especially if they are in an interesting combination and I think I would prefer a non-white/beige background, just for some variety.

And in no particular order, themes:
1. Washington, D.C. or California -- map or whatever
2. Magnolia or honeysuckle blooms
3. Something inspired by this color scheme: http://pinterest.com/pin/30029509/
4. Southwest or Northwest Native American Art - I love Kachina dolls and NW art in particular
5. Edgar Allan Poe -- especially "Lenore" and the quote "The ninety and nine are with dreams, content, but the hope of the world made new, is the hundredth man who is grimly bent on making those dreams come true."
6. Bees/Honeycomb
8.  Geometric or pattern and repetition
9. Tidal pools
10. Texture
