About Me

member of Swap-Bot since March 3, 2007!

Regarding Christmas/holiday card swaps: please do NOT be concerned with what you send me. I don't care if you send me a Jesus card or a snowman card. All I care about is getting a card!!! I do ask though that you don't include tuck ins.... unless it's gift tags. I don't need odd bits of holiday papers or stickers. Thank you!!

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 11/17/2018

My name is Mikki!
I am a 41 yr old married mom of 3 kids and married for 18 yrs. 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 shit. I cuss a lot. I like to wear tshirts and jeans. I'm a HUGE geek. I can be very sarcastic and snarky. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have many different obsessions. I love coffee and drink it black. I also love tea. My favorites are Earl Grey and Tazo Zen. I love sushi and could eat it everyday. I have a few health issues (hypothyroidism, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, anxiety, insomnia, depression, high blood pressure and cholesterol) but I don't let it get in my way.

I've been collecting stamps and postcards since I'm 8 or 9. My biggest philatelic accomplishment is filling the small stamp book I got from a school book order (Troll I think) in the 3rd grade. Took me over 20 yrs to complete it. I last counted my postcards about 3 yrs ago and at the time, I had a little over 3000. The count is probably closer to 4000 now.

I love swapping here. I started on Yahoo groups around 2002, then moved to Live Journal, which is where i found out about Swap-Bot. I mainly swap postcards now, but I will occasionally do other swaps. I believe in rating as required and will do it. After being on this site for 11 yrs, I'm trying to learn to be less worried about what other swappers do and say in the forums and more concerned with my swaps. But sometimes it's not that easy to do. Sometimes I let my current mood get the best of me and let the snark out. I know there are some people here who don't like me, but meh...I'm not here for you nor can I please everyone.

I am a devotee of Hekate for close to 15 yrs 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 well over 20. I consider myself Eclectic. I will not and do not hesitate to do what some consider darker magic.

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.

If you're going to be late sending a swap, just tell me. I would rather you communicate with me than say nothing at all. Believe it or not, I'm pretty understanding and forgiving! Also, a small pet peeve of mine is that you please spell my name correctly, especially on postcards. My name is Mikki, no Mikkie or Nikki. My name is spelled correctly on my address information and I would greatly appreciate it if you spell it appropriately.

Wishlist

Disclaimer: This is not a shopping list. If you have me as a partner in a swap, I am not at all expecting you to send me any of these things. (If you choose to it will obviously be much appreciated.) This is more of a guide of things I like and would like to have!!

  • forever stamps, any image is fine
  • postcard stamps
  • Goosebumps books...we do have a few, so please ask before sending.
  • anything Goosebumps
  • Star Trek postage stamps
  • Star Trek rubber stamps
  • basically anything Star Trek
  • Star Trek Christmas ornaments...my FIL has a Christmas tree of just Star Trek ornaments and my goal is to have one one year also!! I've only recently started my collection with a small Spock one from Walmart and a light up Voyager.
  • Harry Potter stuff, especially Slytherin
  • Pennywise the Dancing Clown...stuff....socks, poster, whatever. Original and New.
  • It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown stuff
  • Nightmare Before Christmas stuff
  • used US postage stamps from 1996 and up
  • anything with Vincent Price
  • Godzilla
  • Universal Classic Horror Monsters...Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, Creature, etc.
  • most horror movies
  • handmade necklaces (18" and longer) and bracelets (at least 7")
  • items from my Etsy list or based on them
  • items from my Amazon wishlist above. Doesn't have to come from there is you can get it elsewhere.
  • vintage crochet books or patterns from thrift shops or flea markets. Especially afghans or working with yarn. I don't need ones for doilies or baby clothes.
  • patchouli scented anything..incense, oil, candles, etc

Postcard wishlist

Please note this: please DO NOT add stickers or washi tape to any portion of the postcards you send. This causes the pc to somehow get hung up in the PO's machine and make slight tears on the cards. I've been collecting postcards since I'm 11...so for over 30 yrs now. And I never had an issue with postcard tears until I started getting them with stickers and washi tape. It was only recently pointed out to me by another swapper's profile as to what is causing them.

  • sci fi
  • horror
  • just plain weird
  • Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, etc.
  • Egypt or Africa
  • Greece, especially Athens
  • anywhere in South America
  • anywhere in Russia
  • any vintage from anywhere
  • touristy pcs from your area
  • anywhere in Mexico
  • homemade is fine. So is zazzle.
  • those strange PCs you don't know who to send to...here, me. I'll accept them!! This does NOT include images that would be considered sexually explicit, to include dick pics, coitus, rape, porn, etc. And no, not even in an envelope.
  • weird images
  • Halloween at anytime of the year
    If you don't know what to say on the back of a pc to me, just write down your favorite quote. Or any quote for that matter. And please, don't worry to much about what kind of PC you send me. I collect any and all PCs.

Please do not send

aside from things on my dislike list at the bottom of my profile, there are few things I would prefer not to receive.

  • paper bits and pieces. I don't use them or need them as I don't do any kind of paper crafting. Chances are they will get thrown out, so please don't send them. (unless it's Star Trek related). I don't do ATCs or pocket letters or anything like that.
  • tarot cards. People assume that because I'm Pagan that I use them. I don't. Never even learned how and I don't care to.
  • sage of any kind, loose or bundled. Not only am I allergic to it, but no one in my house cares for the smell of it. I use cypress or cedar to smudge. Or even Florida Water.

Comment: OMG you are NOT going to believe this! I wear mostly novelty t's and a lot of them are Doctor Who because I LOVE Doctor Who. So this morning, I put on my kind of artsy "Are you my mummy?" one with the 9th doctor and OMG I get your postcard in the mail with this quote!!! What a coincidence! I love both of your quotes, and thanks for the cool unicorn-whale card (yes I know it's a narwhal but I prefer to think of it as a unicorn whale). :D Proof: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/248683210659656271#
Response: That's awesome! (I replied on the pin too!!!)
