Not too long ago, I saw this video on Boho's blog.
I'm in awe.
And yesterday a new friend taught me to hula with her homemade hoop. I was instantly hooked! I went to a couple of stores, but the cheap, flimsy hoops that I found were very sad. I couldn't get them to do what they're supposed to do... and for the first time ever, I blamed the hoop instead of my body.
So, I looked online and found DIY instructions. One trip to Lowe's, where I'm glad I hemmed and hawed instead of overspending, and then a trip to Mendard's, where I found just what I needed for about half as much money. It was easy and fun and very satisfying to make my own hoops, and I'm tellin' ya- these hoops are magic. Everyone's a natural.
