UPDATE: It seems there was a horrible person stealing outgoing mail in my neighborhood. I wasn't the only victim, and they just let us know they have charged her with a felony today. (A neighbor set up cameras and caught her - though it was a bit of a wait before we finally got notice she was caught. Things should go back to normal soon. Please let me know if you are missing anything from me.
*****I AM NOT SURE WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH MY RECENT MAILINGS, BUT I HAVE GOTTEN NOTICE FROM 2 DIFFERENT PEOPLE HERE AND 1 PERSON IN A FACEBOOK SWAP GROUP THAT THEY NEVER RECEIVED THEIR SWAPS. IF I MARK A SWAP SENT IT IS PUT IN THE MAIL THAT DAY. I DEFINITELY WANT TO REMAKE/RESEND YOUR SWAP IF FOR SOME REASON YOURS NEVER ARRIVES, SO PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU THINK YOURS IS GOING TO BE A NO SHOW. EVERYONE DESERVES THEIR SWAP AND THE BEST I CAN DO FOR WHATEVER SWAP I SIGN UP FOR. ONE PERSON EXPRESSED FEELING GUILTY FOR CONTACTING ME, BUT PLEASE DON'T. I WANT YOU TO RECEIVE YOUR SWAP FROM ME, IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME. SO MESSAGE ME HERE OR FOR FASTER RESPONSE AT HOLLOWFYRE@HOTMAIL.COM SINCE I DON'T GET ON SB DAILY.*****

Hello! I'm Harmony, and I live in Mebane, NC now (people always ask so it is pronounced Meh-bin). I'm an artist and an internet junkie. I share my house with a bunny named Anya, a chihuahua named Faith, 3 cats (Miss Kitty Fantastico, Glory, and Druscilla), and 10 hermit crabs. I have a great group of friends and family who support my craziness.

...but mostly mayo. =p
I hadn't thought to include a section for this at first, but I'm in a swap that requires it now, so here is a list of things I would love to receive (dollar store and thrift store friendly):
I love fantasy and urban fantasy (I know I said that above, but I REALLY love them). My favorite author is Charles de Lint. I also really like Colleen Gleason. I love books on art, journaling, and snail mail as well. How-to books, poetry, books of quotes, coloring books, books on survival skills and books of random facts also interest me.
"The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry" ~adapted from a line by Robert Burns.
They often go awry, but it is still good to try to add structure to the chaos right? I am new to the world of planners. I got my planner on February 1st 2016...so I am VERY new. I'm still sort of feeling things out and deciding what I like.
I have the 5.5" x 8.5" Passion Planner, and I am in love with it. I have already seen a huge change in my motivation, and I love that at the end of the year I'll have a keepsake to remind me of everything.
Things I think I "need" for my planner currently:
Great pens that don't bleed
Stickers or rubber stamps for injections and doctor appointments (I have a lot of these to remember)
thin washi tape (5mm wide) I don't use the times on my planner because my days just don't flow like that, so I would like more colors of this to cover it up.
Things I love and would use with my planner:
stickers that are small and relevant to planning
stamps that are small and relevant
color...I love colors, especially bright ones
cats, bats, zebras, unicorns, chihuahuas, bunnies, hermit crabs, and other tiny cute animal items that can be used.
items that display simple emotions (sad, happy, in love, etc) because a lot of my planner involves keeping track of how my days are going.
advice, tips, tricks, and your favorites...I would love to get ideas to help me further explore what I will love about planning from people who have been doing it longer!
Things I'm not fond of for my planner:
I tried highlighters my first week and didn't really like them...maybe I'll revisit that later.
I am a Naturalistic Pantheist. This means that most religious items would be wasted on me...however inspiring or spiritual quotes would be fine.
Some pictures of my planner, this is my first 3 weeks of using it. You can tell I'm still experimenting with what I like ♥
My all-time favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I love the wit and dialogue. I've made so many amazing friends through a mutual love for the show. I've loved all Joss Whedon shows actually (Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Agents of Shield...he was even a writer on Roseanne and I loved it too). I also love a lot of current shows (Originals, Reign, Grey's, Dr. Who). I almost always have the TV on...even if it's just for background noise. I definitely get my monies worth from Netflix and Hulu each month =]
I'm going to dazzle you with my newly learned lingo. I prefer my postcards to be sent naked (yes, I had to google what that meant when I saw it in a swap). I prefer them stamped and written on. I'm gonna cheat a bit here and copy my info from postcrossing as far as my favorite types of cards.
As you can see, I'm easy to please!
I actually enjoy homemade cards as long as it looks like some thought was put into it, so if the swap allows I don't mind that either.
I want to know my mail made you smile. I strive to do my best on each swap because I love getting awesome mail, and I love knowing I may have made someone's day brighter with mail I sent to them.
I never sign-up for a swap that I can't follow through on. My swaps are ready and sent as soon as possible after partners are assigned. If my swap hasn't gotten to you, and you feel it should have please let me know and I will resend. I definitely don't want someone not getting what I owe them, and lets face it, sometimes things do get lost or held up in the mail.
I dislike having to even have this section, but I think it's important to call these people out. If your name is here and you want to resolve the issue with me, contact me privately. I'm very reasonable about letting you resend, but no one ends up here without effort on my part before I rate them a 1 to contact and let them fix the issue.
