Just wanted to share the hoop I made for the last hoopla swap. My partner had Home, but Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros as her wedding song, so I made something inspired by that. (I'm borrowing her pictures from the swap gallery that you can find here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388564.0 )



Each picture is a different lyric. I had so much fun making this, the song is one of my favorites as well, and I've been meaning to design something for it for a while now. Anyway, I thought this might be a fun approach to incorporate more lyrics than just the chorus Smiley



I'm pretty proud of it, and it was tough to let it go, but I hope my partner enjoys it Smiley

I'm so so glad that you like it! I was worried you might not be able to tell what the pictures were and you might not get it! I had briefly considered making it a clock instead of having the chorus in the middle, but I decided this way made more sense Smiley

drawing up all the little pictures was fun, but I admit I thought the lyrics were "chocolate cake" originally. Had to listen a few times before I realized he says chocolate candy! Found a live version where it was really clear though.

What a gorgeous hoop!!!! Did you have a lot of fun in the hoopla swap? I want to join, now that I've started a crafty area where I want to hang a hoop collage, but I'm a nervous swapper.

This is an amazing song with an amazing sentiment, and you can tell just how much work you put into all of those little pictures. I love that you incorporated more than just the chorus too. Awesome. This Rocks! Smiley

the hoopla swap was so much fun! I had been stalking hoopla galleries for a while and was really nervous, but finally decided to join in. I received an awesome hoop from LimeRiot and everyone in the swap is very supportive of new people. You should DEFINITELY join the next round! I now have three hoops on my hoopla wall and I love it!

Thanks whitterp! I think that I will practise my stitching, and try to learn some new techniques in the hopes that I'll feel more on par with everyone for the next round. I'm glad to hear that everyone was friendly and helpful to the new hoopla swappers Smiley

Again, this hoop is super cute Smiley
