Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap! Sign-ups are open until January 28th. 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. 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 pictures of received hooplas is required for this swap.
If you are unable to do so, you are expected to contact the person who claimed you and ask them to please do so for you.

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 pinterest 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 (TroubleT and Averia) 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

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.

I've not heard from megstar so here we go!

Hiya everyone! I'm T! I live in Georgia (USA) 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 shape 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 sacriligious themes!


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 (done in taupe, cream and black accents) 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 - my newest addiction Smiley

6. Constellations - I love all of them.

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

8. a Faery for my daughter's growing hoopla, a smallish size hoop (4"-6") would be preferable for this

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 or Pinterest

I claim amalgam for Japanese
Send by Jan 31st

1 claims, 0 Claims in Transit, 0 Claims Received

I have a huge wall set aside for hoops and it has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades


Here are my themes!

  • something inspired by this embroidery http://inaminuteago.com/embroidery/embroidery8.html, tho i certainly don't expect anyone to put in quite so much effort. with or without lizards. I really love the crowded variety of textured stitches mixed with large blocks of a repeated pattern
  • the three characters '!@#'
  • blackwork
  • monochromatic in blues
  • a mini cross stitched quilt (any pattern)
  • silly frogs/tree frogs/faerie frog
  • Celtic knotwork
  • Meowth/Team Rocket
  • Any of Gibbs' rules from NCIS, faves are 5, 7, 35. 40, 45 & 51 http://ncis.wikia.com/wiki/Leroy_Jethro_Gibbs/Rules
  • Abby from NCIS
  • The Letter K
  • Anything at all that inspires you

Thank you!!!
