About Me

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.*****

β™₯β™₯β™₯My Etsy Wishlist because it won't let me link to it above and it is required for a swap I'm in.

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.

  • swapping of course
  • all types of snail mail -I am newly addicted to keeping a planner (I have a Passion Planner)
  • creating art (including painting, drawing, coloring, crochet, polymer clay and other DIY projects...I'm a bit of an arts and crafts supply hoarder)
  • reading (mostly urban fantasy, cheesy vampire romance type novels, comics, and non-fiction...my kindle goes with me everywhere)
  • history (I especially love strong female historical figures and anything from the 1300s - the 1800s)
  • astronomy
  • learning about other cultures
  • postcards
  • stationery
  • nature
  • autumn
  • Halloween
  • herbal teas
  • Funko pop vinyls
  • minions (I started collecting them during a hospital stay and it stuck lol)
  • TMNT (I collect them too...I also collect zebras, bats, knives, stickers, washi, postcards, mailboxes/postboxes, skulls, odd/unusual/one of a kind nic nacs, pop vinyls, and rubber stamps)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Dr. Who
  • dragons
  • Star Wars
  • villains in cartoons and comics
  • JEM and the Holograms (the original stuff from the 80s)...a lot of 80s cartoons really
  • tattoos (I'm a bit addicted...stopped counting after my 25th because they all started coming together to make bigger tattoo collages lol).

Dislikes

  • Food. Unless it's tea or a food swap I have a lot of medical issues and dietary requirements, so for the most part food isn't really safe. If it's candy fruity candies like skittles or starburst are ok.
  • floral scents (I'm allergic - if you send something scented then fruity or foodie type scents are a good bet)
  • smoke (also allergic - as a former smoker it really hits me hard, people who smoke don't realize how strong the scent is on their stuff)
  • intentional meanness and cruelty
  • bigots
  • bullies
  • angry yelly type people
  • illness in a world that could cure or at least ease most of it if not for greed
  • taking myself too seriously
  • mayo
  • gory images (I like horror and cutesy dark images...but nothing gross)
  • feeling judged/controlled

...but mostly mayo. =p

Wishlist

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):

  • Anything handmade
  • Planner Decorations
  • Colored Pencils
  • Gel Pens
  • Washi Tape
  • rubber or clear stamps (including hand carved)
  • tags or pocket letter inserts
  • a pocket letter (I've never sent or received one and they intimidate me a bit)
  • ATCs
  • stickers
  • postcards
  • magnets (even old business ones you were gonna throw out...I reuse them)
  • bookmarks
  • sudoku puzzles
  • crossword puzzles
  • adult coloring pages
  • markers
  • crafty type embellishments or miniatures
  • playing cards with interesting themes (not just regular backed ones)
  • Art you create...I have framed postcards and ATCs etc on my wall of my favorites. I'm a very eclectic person and LOVE to decorate with works of art people make for me!

Favorite Books

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.

Plans Turn Wishes Into Reality

"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 β™₯

Favorite Television

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 =]

Postcards

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.

  • Zebras and Bats
  • Owls and Hermit Crabs
  • Nature Scenes
  • Art/crafts (including textiles and origami)
  • Bunnies/Rabbits
  • Dogs and Cats
  • Space
  • Basically any Animal
  • Wolves
  • Native American designs and themes
  • Irish scenes and themes
  • Vampires, Ghosts, Fairies, and other "fantasy" cards (Mythical creatures and scenes)
  • Jokes
  • Things pertaining to Snail Mail
  • Vintage and Pin-ups
  • Tattoos
  • Yarn and Crocheting
  • Tea and Coffee

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.

Swaps and Ratings

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.

Flakers =[

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.

Comment: I hate to do this but I have not yet received this swap and see you haven't been on swap bot in over 2 weeks. I PM'd on 14th June and also emailed on the 18th June and have received no reply. I gave time in case you were on vacation - I will rerate if received.

Comment: Granddaughter has installed the ATC on the lower half of the fridge, which is her territory, and named it Tom. Thank you. I enjoyed it at eye level for all of about 2 minutes, before she spied it, and claimed it for her own.

:) ~ Spring themed profile comment

Hi Harmony (Love your name!)

I absolutely adore spring! Unfortunately here in the Netherlands it has been cold and rainy and there is no real sign of spring yet, apart from the new leaves on the trees. Hopefully it will be nicer and warmer soon!

I have absolutely no idea how it is where you are, but I am sure hoping you are able to enjoy spring to the fullest!!

Much love, Sam - DreamingAries

β™₯β™₯β™₯APDG ~ Earth Dayβ™₯β™₯β™₯

I think Earth Day is such an important day to remind people that what they do each day affects the planet we all share, to educate ourselves on ways to reduce our carbon footprint, and to instill an appreciation for the Earth and taking care of the environment in youth. Earth day really should be every day, and in a way I get upset on this day just realizing that the fact we need a day to celebrate and educate about saving the planet means humanity is pretty far removed from the connection we should have with nature and the planet that sustains us. I hope you enjoy the images I chose and find a way to make a difference for the planet for yourself, your family, or your community. β™₯
