About Me


This is my actual mailbox. I use it to send swaps on-time, if not early.

Partner/Coordinator Communication will take place should this status change for any reason.

Missing Mail? Please direct message me before rating. I keep a photo-log of swap contents and packaging.

Spoiler-Alert: My Flickr account often has photographs of swaps I’ve sent.

Postage Due? I have a postal scale. 😁 But, if this happens to you please email a picture of your receipt to me and I will promptly reimburse via PayPal or Zelle. Direct-message me here, and I will respond with my email Or, if you prefer unused USPS postage stamps, I’m also happy to mail you those in-kind. I do apologize for any inconvenience.

Allergy Alert: My home is smoke-free but pet-friendly. I also shed a lot, due to Hashimoto’s. I apologize ahead of time if there’s a hair stuck in packing tape.😆

Welcome: Reliable, honest swappers for private swaps! I have an assortment of items to share with people who appreciate and can use them!

Please scroll down to “Do Not Send” section if you’re just here to review my 🛑 Dislikes list. 🛑 Thank you for your consideration!

3/11/2023 Our eldest daughter just told us we’re going to be grandparents in July! I’m so thrilled to be a grandma to a human for the first time!! We’re planning a trip to NC where they live soon, so I will not be swapping much until we’re back.


My name is 🎵Harmony Joy🎶 (she/her) I like both my first and middle name as a reminder of who I'm called to be. Others refer to me as either "Harmony", "Joy", "Harmony-Joy" or 🍪"Cookie" (because of my last name) - call me whichever you please, just don't call me late for dinner! 🤣

My name is musically-inspired because both of my biological parents are hippies. I am a Berkeley ☮️-born and Nor-Cal foster-system raised “love-child”, who currently lives on the other side of the nation. I met & married my husband in the Sunshine State, while we were both active-duty Air Force.

💞Together, we have three children (2 daughters, 1 son). Being “Mama Bear” is my favorite part of life, and I literally get more excited about 💙 Mother’s Day than my own birthday!🎁 The title also includes all my animals (past & present). 😉

🐾 At the moment, our fur-family consists of 3 feline & 3 canine rescues: Kyna (a Carolina Dog) and Ella (a Great Dane & Pointer mix), plus a Pit-bull "grand-dog" named Luna, two tortoiseshell shorthair grand-mollies named Lily and Piper. Theo, is my ginger tabby grand-gib.🐾 🐈

Perhaps you can surmise that I've always really enjoyed my animals. I think my pets help me cope with “people problems” better. 😉

Whether finned, feathered, furry, or humanoid animals, my ohana really is “my whole world” 💕🌎 And I believe that family is who we make it (beyond DNA).

I’m proud to be a Mama Bear! 🐻🧸 Which is just one more reason why Bettie White will always be my favorite Golden Girl! R.I.P.

My family says I’m “the jack of all trades, master of some.” 😆 I’m simply never bored! 🎨

So, besides my “V.I.Peeps”, I also enjoy many Hobbies:

  • (indoor) Alterations, Art-Journaling, Ballroom Dancing, Card-Making, Coloring, Crocheting, DIY, Face-Painting, Genealogy, Painting, Paper-Making, Pottery, Pressed Flower Craft (oshibana), Reading, Sewing, Smash/Scrap-booking, Watching Movies, Weaving, and West African Dancing.

(I own a Gemini Pro, Sizzix Big Shot Plus, Portable Tim Holtz Sidekick, & Cricut Explore Air2)

  • (outdoor) Fishing, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Hula Dancing, Kayaking, Rollerblading, Shooting, Stand-up Paddle Boarding, Swimming, and Shopping.

  • I 💙 crafting! I like to try new techniques too. My new-found interests are "deco" booklets, ATCs & APCs. However, my portfolio is varied from fiber arts and beading to woodwork and pyrography. My style often varies and is "moody" because I tend to make what I feel. Most of the time I embrace the mixed-media, distressed looks of inky grunge and painterly splatters. However, I enjoy the beauty of clean-and-simple (CAS) designs too.

Due to health issues, I have experienced some hand tremors and vision problems. These are mostly under control now that I got new glasses and my thyroid medication is optimized. But I'd still like swappers to be aware that there are days that I cannot art as well as others. I will always give projects my best efforts and take my time though. This means that I may send swaps very close to their deadline date. It also means that I’m learning to accept imperfections as beautiful, unique qualities and adapt my methods in accordance with the "Wabi-sabi” way. I truly appreciate your patience and understanding. 😊

  • My current collections are: Cartophilia (trading cards) to include ATC/APC and the 7-of-❤️’s playing card (in all sizes & shapes)

  • I’ve started collecting the 7-of-clubs Poker Cards to use for a memorial project in honor of my late G’Mom Cook 3/17/19-1/1/20. The club looks like a shamrock ☘️ and they always remind me of her! We would celebrate our birthdays together with my mother every year, but since she’s passed and the pandemic began, that tradition stopped. I’m starting a new tradition of my own now, using these poker cards to record a fond memory, so I can dwell on the gains she gave me rather than the loss of her being elsewhere.💚

  • I enjoy listening to audiobooks & many different genres of music. My go-to’s are usually classic rock & reggae. I have an all-in-one Radio/CD/Cassette/Record Player in my craft-room, and I 🖤 my vintage vinyl!

  • I am most comfortable at the ocean where I can lose all sense of time hunting for sea glass, heart-shaped rocks, and tiny shells to use in my crafts. I also enjoy fishing, but this ol' gal ain't cut out for boats! I've got a fair pair of fins 🧜🏽‍♀️, but no "sea legs!" 🤢

  • I enjoy spending quality time at libraries, museums, galleries, or art studios. This is because I really enjoy folk-arts & handicrafts. I ❤️ experiential arts.
  • In my youth, I enjoyed traveling the Americas and spent time living in Chile as a foreign exchange student! Now, I prefer to travel in good company, whenever possible. However, most of my current travel has been vicariously via postcards.

I 💜 snail 🐌 mail! 💌

  • When writing, please use neatly hand-written, printed, legible cursive, or typed font.* No need to stress about perfect penmanship, I’d just like to decipher what you’re saying to me. I also ask that ink colors please be **dark colors on light backgrounds because I cannot see yellow, or baby blue ink/gel-pen colors that are written on white paper very well (this doesn't apply to paintings because I'll most likely be able to tell what the image is. I just cannot read text written in light colors unless they're on a dark/black background). Thanks for understanding!


Since this is the "About Me" section of my profile, I think it's important for others to know that I am a frank, what-you-see-is-what-you-get, protective person who does not like drama. I don't look for them, but when they find me, you can guarantee that I won't run from a fight. And if a flame starts spreading like wildfire, I'm going to do what's in my power to make sure the innocent are safe before I go run for help. I've been on this site long enough to know not everyone here has good intentions. I despise trolls (always have, even when they were a rainbow haired trend in the 90's) and people who instigate, trick, or bully others are the root of all evil in my book. I'm also a Pisces and my discernment/perception of people has been accurate more often than not throughout life. I'm a hugger (which is important to understand if you ever meet me in person) and a defender of the underdog (which you outta know if you're the bullying kind).

I am a lifeguard!

I am a LifeGuard & Peer Support Volunteer

There are many factors that can contribute to suicide risk. An estimated 90% of people who take their own lives have a health condition that is mistreated or undiagnosed. A suicide attempt is a sign that someone is in crisis. It should always be taken seriously and never ignored. That is why I will not tolerate cyberbullying.

Known offenders are forever restricted from participation in my groups/swaps.

Will you take the LifeGuard pledge?

Report Cyberbullying!

🎀Swap Etiquette🎁

I am 3 hours ahead of Swap-bot time!

FLORIDA hurricane season is from June 1st through November 15th

  • As a swap coordinator, I often "close" my swaps a day earlier than the posted date because I am a "night-owl" and do most my work while others are asleep! :-)

  • Posted swaps that are left without any interest for 72 hours, might be deleted to perhaps repost at a different time.

  • Sometimes my swaps have a Sunday send-by date even though there’s no postal service because swaps can still be dropped off in the “blue”(outgoing) mail boxes. I often drop by the P.O. on my way to do other errands on Sundays, and once that swap leaves my possession it’s marked as sent!

  • Similarly, if I’ve put a swap in my street-side mailbox for outgoing pickup, but the mail carrier doesn’t come, then I will unmark it from being sent that day. I do this because my mailbox is not water-tight and items left overnight can become damp, warped, and unsealed if I don’t bring them back inside the house. Florida is VERY HUMID and we get a lot of afternoon showers. This is also why there may be a lot of clear packing tape on outer swap packaging.

  • I also live on a mail carrier route that’s considered the ’last stop’ so, if it’s too dark outside for safe deliveries, or the delivery person feels unwell then my mail doesn’t get delivered/picked up that day. Thankfully, this has only happened a couple times since I’ve lived here. I truly appreciate our postal workers and try my best to make their jobs as pleasant as possible.

  • Since the pandemic began, we’ve had 14 different USPS personnel doing our deliveries. I’m beginning to think that our route is just going to whomever gets the time that day…🤷🏽‍♀️

  • My servicing mail station is the USPS Apollo Annex of Melbourne, Florida (Phone: (321) 255-7589).

  • Date extensions will be granted on a case-by-case basis for reliable swappers who communicate with me. I am a coordinator that understands real life happens outside of this ‘bot. 💙 I also understand that real life circumstances can change in an instant, and this site is not priorty-one when life happens. But, I don’t think it should be months to log back in and at least post a note on your profile so your swap partners or coordinators don’t worry.

  • I only coordinate swaps that I am willing/able to angel. I also make a sincere effort to vet each participant before assigning partners.

If you end up needing a swap angel'd, please direct message me after you’ve contacted your partner.

IMPORTANT: When I angel a swap it is strictly to ensure each participant receives something in-kind in return. It is not in any way meant to pressure someone into rating another individual. How someone does their rating is up to that swapper, and none of my business. Even if I ask for kindness and understanding of another person's extenuating circumstances, I will never tell anyone how to rate another person.

    • I {rate} incoming swaps within 48 hours of their receipt. It’s my practice to only archive them once received/rated!
    • I am not concerned with postmark dates. They’re completely unreliable and have been counterfeited by swappers here before. As far as I’m concerned, if I receive the swap described you’re good to go. 👍🏼 🖐 I will never rate a 3/1 without first contacting my partner and coordinator.
    • I try to follow-up on swaps if it's been thirty (30) USPS business days from the date I logged my swap as sent, (and at least two weeks from the deadline date) but no rating has been posted. I will contact my partner about a resend because I know postal services lose things sometimes.
    • I appreciate feedback/comments when rating and do try to make the time to respond to rater's accordingly. Even “silent” ratings I’ve received will often receive a simple “thank you” to show my gratitude for remembering to rate (although I admit to not being fond of a silent rating). There are times when I cannot respond to all of them. This does not mean that I am any less grateful for the valuable time that you’ve invested in me or the happy mail! I promise.
  • Hearts here don’t cost me anything! I look for reasons to give them when I rate. They’re not associated with extras that you throw in the envelope (I don’t want/need random toss-ins). And even though it’s fun to see in the mailbox, I don’t rate based on how the package is decorated either (there are Postmaster’s who strictly despise sticky embellishments on mail because it gums up their machinery. Every Postmaster is different and can interpret postal regulations accordingly).

I also don’t over-analyze the giving of a heart by withholding them on type-1 or type-2 swaps (a postcard can feel “extra special” to the recipient even though it’s not technically a “package”! The point is: when your swap shows me that you thought about me, I’m happy to share a heart!

I don’t give everyone hearts nor expect everyone to give them to me. A heart means extra effort or resources were involved with a swap. That’s why I will no longer heart a swap sent completely blind unless it’s specifically meant to be and named a blind swap. Any swap that’s supposed to be profile-inspired needs to have my name inside it somewhere, at the very least.

Why I left several groups:

(because thieves swap there)

  • There are swappers here who steal and yet maintain a perfect-5 overall rating and are in multiple groups. Now, I no longer trust ratings or groups the way that I once did.

It’s taken me almost two years to decide to post anything negative about a swapper, but I believe others should be warned. One swapper in particular, @Allegrae has stolen ATC, postage, and heirlooms from me. I was gullible and trusted her ratings. I also read that she liked buttons and thought it would be nice to collaborate with her on some Scottish themed ATC (my Flickr page linked above has pictures of these cards). So, for a swap I sent her heirloom Scottie buttons, that I’d attached to strips of genuine Harris Tweed. I’d also included two embroidered original Harris Tweed labels with an S.A.S.E. so she could easily return one ATC to me after making her additions. She rated me with a heart-five and also messaged me which confirmed receipt of these items. But due to her family issues, circa September 2021, she asked for extra time to work on the cards and promised to return one completed ATC using the button, tweed, and label. Nothing ever came. I’ve messaged her for over a year to ask her to at least return my items even if she doesn’t complete an ATC. She continually ignores my messages and has still returned nothing to me. I know she coordinates countless ATC Bag swaps and I wonder how many others might’ve had their cards go missing. I know she’s not the only one who steals here. But when I read on her profile how she feels so fondly for her grandparents, it disgusts me that she’s disrespecting me and my late grandmother. I was very close to her because she’s responsible for most of my upbringing. She even took a job working for my first foster family after my grandfather passed away just so she could spend time with me and my siblings more. G’mom was my person. And I cherish everything that I have left from our times together - even the smallest buttons!



To maximize successful happy mail deliveries (and minimize waste), my swap participation/coordination will remain selective and regionally restricted until further notice.

I will also be using Pirate Ship to mail most of my packages because their rates are cheap-aaar! 🏴‍☠️

I’ve become a full-time college student again (my 5th degree), while still homeschooling my teenage son, so I will log in here regularly, but my swap coordination will be minimal. I’m also still trying to get my craft-room back in working order! September 2021 brought us broken pipes in the walls which we had repaired via insurance, but then our roof leaked and flooded the front bedroom before Christmas 2022. My house is partly stacked & packed up and/or in a storage unit up the street while we go through the slow process of having the roof repaired and front room walls redone. All this to say that I have a lot of hidden treasures to create with that are too difficult to dig for and my time-intensive swaps are on pause. I’m fortunate to have a patient husband who let’s me do my little deco/ATC swaps at the kitchen table as long as my mess stays on one half of the table and still gives him space to eat!😆

I believe it’s also worth mentioning that Int'l postal worker, railroad, and sanitation worker strikes will continue to disrupt courier mail services (esp. in parts of Asia, Europe, and Australia). So, I’m sticking to swaps that are in USA/CAN for these reasons.

Int’l Mail Suspensions

SOAK Old Postage Stamps

ZIP Code™ - The Basics

Want to make sure the domestic mail that you’re sending is processed quickly and efficiently? Then always use the standardized street address with ZIP+4® format!

Did you know USPS doesn’t want any punctuation in delivery addresses? In fact, all letters are to be in CAPS-lock and black ink on a white/light background.


By addressing mail appropriately you’ll ensure that they are processed smoothly by mail sorting equipment. Using the standardized address with ZIP+4® format alleviates possible delays from manual handling.

Try this USPS lookup tool to find the standardized address and ZIP+4® you’re mailing to:


📩Postage & Postcards✉ - Handmade postcards are always welcome. But I really do not want anymore random blank postcards please. I am technically trying to get rid of the blank ones that I have because the USPS does not prioritize these anymore, so they get lost more than mail in envelopes with return addresses because there's no accountability for them.

❤️🧡💛💚💙💗💜💗🤎🤍🖤💝 I heart art!

Please share your PC collage, coloring, drawing, graphic design, painting, or photography. I also like receiving “print-on-demand” PCs by Zazzle, Red Bubble, Café Press, Society 6, etc. If it’s a postcard that you think I will enjoy (even if the swap says "No"), mail it and let me know why! I promise I’ll never rate down for thoughtful intentions!

  • I will always enjoy used postage stamps from the Post-crossing movement or vintage/retro stamps with postal workers, mailboxes, and letters on them.

🍪🥠Special Request:

Please add a cookie to the back of my postcard🍪🥠

*I also ask that my postcards please be sent ✏written🖊 on, but in an✉ envelope🌎 (if the swap allows a choice). The envelope (or clear sleeve) simply protects the image on the postcard from being smudged or torn by the USPS machinery (and they seem to be arriving damaged more recently).

WISHLIST (a.k.a. Insta-smiles 😃 & hearts 💕)

  • Mail with a postage stamp of Chief Standing Bear
  • Postcard-sized pieces of colorful fabric
  • Quilted scraps I can cut into 💙
  • ATC-sized Mixed-Media Master-board or painted papers
  • Stitched/Sewn Paper Scraps or (tiny) Fabric Snippets
  • Typed/Written Poem, Song, Zine, or Story by YOU
  • Sheet Music or Pages from Gospel & Spiritual Song Books, specifically the songs “Roll Jordan Roll”, “Wade In The Water”, or “Nobody Knows
  • A Copy of Your Favorite, Tried-n-True Delicious Cookie Recipe
  • Dictionary Pages with My Name(s) on them in any language: harmony, joy, cook, or cookie
  • Royal Blue Ribbon and Fabrics Scraps (any size bits will do! ;0)
  • Fabric bits or book pages with The Jetson’s, Sesame Street, 100 Acre Woods, Care Bears, Autobots, or Rainbow Brite characters
  • Any ATCs that you don’t want. My only ask is that the cards be correctly sized (2.5” x 3.5”) please. I keep my cards inside standard trading card sleeves in 3-ring binders.

ATC Art I’d 💙 to add to my collection:

  1. A Halloween Cookie Monster w/him wearing a simple masquerade/phantom mask
  2. A St. Patrick’s Cookie Monster w/him wearing a top-hat and enjoying shamrock cookies
  3. A “Flower of the Month” ATC or APC for July through December


If anyone happens across a “yellow pages” phone book from the Bay Area, California circa 1977-78 I’m trying to find evidence of a plant shop called “Heavenly Houseplants & Other Divine Gifts” that was off Telegraph Avenue.

🛑Do Not Send🛑

🚫 Soy Anything (I'm allergic)

🚫 Religious Propaganda (I dispose of dogmas)

🚫 Claymation (plasticine stop-motion) Characters

🚫 Aliens, Albino Animal Imagery

🚫 Dolls, Zettiology Creatures, Zombies

🚫 Monkeys, Gorillas, Baboons

🚫 Scorpions, Spiders, Snakes

🚫 Fragrances, Cosmetics, Jewelry

  • Please also avoid sending clothing. I have been getting socks in Christmas swaps lately and it's disheartening because I cannot wear any of them. Think Hobbit Feet! The tiny human socks all get donated to charity for the homeless in our area though (so no waste there).

  • Some swappers enjoy having a list to “shop” from, while others feel squelched by too many ideas. For this reason, I have tried to create “harmony” in my profile by listing some of the things I like. This is not an extensive listing, 😉 so swap partners can breathe easy because my default mode is to find the good in whatever is mailed my way. 😉 😃 😊

Thank YOU for thinking of me!

So many fun little packages, filled to the brim with such cute and plentiful goodies. Ohmygoodness!!!! I felt so spoiled. It definitely was a "special delivery!" You were right, I especially enjoyed your letter and feel so blessed that you gifted me with the letter. I would love to do the notecard penpal thing with you, but no pressure on time or expectations :D Thank you for making me feel so special and spreading joy my way (´∀`)♡
Comment: Oh your swap brought me such joy! I absolutely LOVE the bookmark you made me. It is very much ocean oriented! Thank you for knowing my likes and creating! I have to share my story, it is one of my puposes, I will not let anyone be alone. I will sit with them in the darkness. Thank you for your kind words.

Thanks so much for the beautifully finished ABC: Sender’s Choice #24 ATC! I like that you used an iridescent purple for the flower. And the mushrooms to admire! lol
