About Me

I ❤️ watching🦄 unicorns jog by 🤣 it’s better than the T-rex GIFs I’ve been watching twerk to send myself into fits of laughter! 😆 Watch

Truly Happy Mail

5/2/2020: All type 2/3 swaps that I receive will undergo a 15 minute UV sterilization process. I am doing my best to stay healthy here at home! Hope and pray you all will too!👊🏽🤙🏽🙏🏼❤️

🌺Aloha!🌺 My name is Harmony Joy🎶🎵

My mother is a hippy, and my father is a musician. I am a Berkeley ☮️ -born and California foster-system-raised “love-child”, who currently lives on the other side of the nation. I have been married since 2009, and we have three children (2 daughters, 1 son). Being Momma Bear is my favorite part of life, and I literally ❤️ Mother’s Day more than my own birthday!🎁 Our current fur-family consists of 2 canine rescues: Kyna (a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix) and Ella (a Black Labrador mix), plus a pit-bull "grand-dog" named Luna, and a brown-tabby “grand cat” named Maximus.

My OHANA means everything to me.

Besides my “V.I.Peeps”, I also enjoy many HOBBIES:

  • (indoor) Pressed Flower Craft (oshibana), Card-making, Coloring, Painting, Paint-pouring, Paper-making/marbling, Pottery & Sculpting, Genealogy, Crocheting, Listening to Music, Face-painting, Dancing, Reading, Weaving, Watching Movies, DIY, Diary-writing, Sewing, Scrap-booking, and Art-Journaling (I own a Sizzix Big Shot Plus, Portable Tim Holtz Sidekick, & The Cricut Explore Air2)

  • (outdoor) Hiking, Scouting, Shooting, Thrift/Yard Sale or Estate Shopping, Horseback Riding, Kayaking & Swimming

  • My current collections include: Philately, Numismatics, Deltiology, and Cartophilia to include ALL sizes & shapes of the 7-of-❤️’s playing card!!!

  • I enjoy listening to all genres of music depending on my mood. I also like to listen to audiobooks. (I have an all-in-one CD/Cassette Tape/Record player/Radio in my craftroom!)

  • I feel privileged to be a mother, artist, teacher, geek, and military Veteran!
  • I am most comfortable at the ocean. I also enjoy spending quality time at libraries, museums, or art galleries and ceramic studios. This is because I REALLY enjoy learning new things and working with my hands!
  • In my youth, I enjoyed traveling the Americas alone and spent time living in Chile as a foreign exchange student! Now, I prefer to travel in good company, whenever possible. However, most my traveling has been vicariously via postcards recently!

I 💜 snail 🐌 mail! 💌

  • When handwriting, please print if possible, as I have difficulty reading some cursive penmanship.

I Pledge to Rate

Hakuna Matata!

  • I genuinely enjoy sharing, earning ❤️‘s, and making others smile!
  • I also avoid negativity!

200+=Good Vibes! 🤙🏽

  • Having been diagnosed with the autoimmune thyroid disease known as Hashimoto’s means that stress is my kryptonite. Not all stress - just the negative “distress” that literally weakens my (already compromised) immune system.
  • For this reason, I seek peaceful and positive things to help me focus on life’s pleasantries, be mindful of my blessings, and stay healthy for myself and my family!

  • I am participating in Swap-bot to improve my health and hope in humanity.

  • I highly value intelligent people who are capable of both self-reflection and empathy for others. Since one of my favorite books is “To Kill A Mockingbird” I often refer to my kind of people as those who can take a “Boo Radley” moment to walk in another persons moccasins!

  • Genuine and kind people are my kind of people.

  • Last but not least, I am a disabled American Veteran of the USAF. I struggle daily with the challenges posed by Anxiety, and PTSD w/major depressive episodes. My mental health challenges are a result of post 9-11 service to my country. And I pride myself on being one of the few female EOD 💣technicians to have served in the armed forces. I’ve worked hard to be this “gritty”!

  • USA “private” swaps? Just message me! 😃 I am looking for some trustworthy swap-pals willing to drop postcards in the mail for me! They’re stamped, self-addressed PCs I have saved or been given for my collection over the years & I’d like to have them sent back with postal cancellation stamps from all 50 states. Eventually, these will be bound into a book!

  • “FOR IT IS IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE.” (St. Francis of Assisi)

I have the following to offer ANYONE who is interested/in-need:

  • Handmade Envies
  • Pop-Tabs from Aluminum Cans
  • Book & Dictionary Pages
  • Children’s Book Illustrations
  • Newspaper Comics (black-and-whites)
  • Assorted Buttons (from/for clothes)
  • Playing Cards (for altering/arts)
  • Graphic 45 & Colored Card-stock Paper Scraps
  • Alphabet Stickers & Thickers
  • Assorted Teabags (factory sealed)
  • Postcards (new & vintage, all unused)

Insta-❤️ worthy mail to me includes:

  • Celtic knot & Clover 🍀 or Shamrock ☘️ Items
  • Vintage Scouting Ephemera (GSUSA, BSA, & WAGGGS)
  • Cookie Monster ATC's @georgiafae made me my first one and I fell in love with it...now I want a whole page full of them! Yes, please! Me want all the Cookie’s! THANK YOU @Autist and @chimerix for creating me amazing Cookie Monster ATC’s! That's three now, six to go! I'm so excited!


  • I have learned that some people enjoy having a long list of ideas to “shop” for me, while others feel creatively squelched by too many ideas. For this reason, I have tried my best to create “harmony” in my profile by briefly listing some of the things I like.
  • I have been asked to list any strong “dislikes” as this is often easier to work with. So, although I no longer have any “do-not-send” requests, if you’re a caring swapper with interest, these are the things I AM NOT FOND OF: claymation, sock-puppets, & zombies.
  • I will unashamedly regift the worthy and recycle or dispose of the rest.
  • Thank you for understanding, and I appreciate every kind effort with ❤️-felt gratitude!

Comment: I love the eagle idea! When we are watching shows or movies, I always wonder what life was truly like in those times. With living in tornado alley and close to the plains, I always wonder what the Indians and pioneers felt when events such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, high winds, rain to the point of flooding. I know that I wouldn't have chosen that life!

Comment: Thanks for sharing! I can't stand The simpsons either, but my bf loves it... so sometimes I just can't get away from it.
Rabbitfreedom rated for Boredom buster #11 on May 28, 2020
Comment: I do not eat anything from the sea so I've never had crab legs but I have watched others struggle with eating them and it does not look like it is worth it. They should invent something that would clean them for you!

Comment: I hate crab. I don’t like eating it

Comment: Thank you for swapping it’s great to hear about people’s day dreams I share your eagle interest
NRGordon rated for Boredom buster #10 on May 28, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the swap. Maybe I could use more lives if they are like reincarnation and I wouldn’t remember the previous ones. I have no desire to relive the first 14 years of my life.
