About Me

member of Swap-Bot since March 3, 2007!

Hello and Welcome to my profile! If you are here just to have a look around, enjoy! My profile is an almost constant state of change! profile updated 08/10/2017

My name is Mikki!
I am a 40 yr old married mom of 3 kids and married for 17yrs. I am a S@HM. Currently living in Montgomery, Alabama but I am originally from a small town in Louisiana. I moved here in 1992 with my parents and 3 siblings.

As a person, I am very eclectic. I like a lot of sh!t. I cuss a lot. I like to wear tshirts and jeans. I'm a geek, a nerd, a punk-boho-gypsy-goth-wanna-be. I can be very sarcastic and snarky. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have many different obsessions.

I am a devotee of Hekate for over 10yrs now. I am a Witch. I walk with the Goddess and I honor Her on a daily basis. I walk a fine line between the dark and the light. I've been a Pagan for 30+, practicing for over 20. I consider myself Eclectic. I work with herbs, candles and crystals. I will not and do not hesitate to do what some consider darker magic. I am not Wiccan and I do not follow the Wiccan Rede.

Random, specific things that I love: my husband and kids, Halloween, horror movies, Vincent Price, black cats, bats, thunderstorms, vampires (not the sparkly kind!), reading my Kindle, the smell of patchouli, the Goddess, candles and incense, fabric, the color black, the smell of old books, Ancient Egypt, old cemeteries....

My geek girl randomness:
* Star Trek
* The Golden Girls
* Godzilla
* The Avengers
* Star Wars
* Supernatural
* Mars Attacks
* Batman
* Justified
* Marvel comics, specifically--Iron Man, Capt. America, Thor, Loki and Hulk.

* Benedict Cumberbatch
* The Big Bang Theory
* Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon

More about my favorite fandom, Star Trek. For those who don't know me, I am a HUGE Trekkie. So basically anything Star Trek sent to me is a HUGE plus. I was lucky enough to meet Brent Spiner and LaVar Burton last year and I'm hoping to meet Nichelle Nichols later this year. My hubby and I have starting a savings account to go to Star Trek Las Vegas for our 20th anniversary (Aug 4, 2020). I am currently working on a scrapbook of sorts made from a composition book I covered in fabric. I will put all the ST postcards I received from Canada, along with the 3 ST atcs I've received as part of a wishlist. While I have no favorite episodes, I do have favorite characters. And here is a list:

TOS: Bones and Spock
TAS: M'Ress
TNG: Picard, Data and Q
VOY: Capt Janeway and The Doctor
DS9: Quark and Odo
ENT: T'Pol and Tucker

Regarding Swaps....

PLEASE do not send any extras in swaps. I appreciate the thought. I do not have the space for storing extra bits and bobs which will most likely be tossed out. Please save your money on me and send them to someone who may use them. I also, I rate on the swap itself, not on extras sent. I always have and I always will.
Also, if I have not rated you for a swap, please do not hesitate to message me about it. I usually put my swaps (which are mainly postcards for now) stacked on the counter near my laptop. Sometimes, my hubby will move them without letting me know, so I will forget to rate them. I usually try to rate them right away, but I can forget.

Wishlist

More about me

Crafty Stuff

My current craft obsession is crochet and perler beads. I am currently working on a a graphgan for my son that I hope to have finished by his 11th birthday in August. Here is my Pinterest board of stuff I've made. I haven't updated it in a while, but I do post on Instagram and Facebook.

This is the last thing I sewed. It did the "quilt as you go" method, making each section 3-4 rows, quilting it, then sewing together. This one took a few months because I kept getting aggravated and would put it away!! This covers the top of our queen bed with no drape over the sides.

Imgur
After 10 hours of total work over 3 or 4 days, I finally finished this! The finished piece is 9 1/2 inches x 13 1/2 inches.
