member of Swap-Bot since March 3, 2007!
My name is Mikki!
I am a 40 yr old married mom of 3 kids and married for 16yrs. 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.
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
* The Avengers
* Star Wars
* Mars Attacks
* Marvel comics, specifically--Iron Man, Capt. America, Thor, Loki and Hulk.
* Doctor Who
* The Walking Dead
* Benedict Cumberbatch
* The Big Bang Theory
* Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon
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.
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!!
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.
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. I have 4 more large pieces like this planned over the next few weeks.
Things I collect:
* Funko Pop Figures...I have an Amazon wishlist of the ones I want!
* Dracula by Stoker books, the different covers
* any non-fiction books dealing with vampires
* stamps, specifically looking for 90s to current series (no forevers though), used
* postcards, any but the free kind. Love the vintage from flea markets, etc.
* Classic Movie Monster items, esp. Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and His Bride
* Vincent Price items
* Halloween items, Vintage and Prim is a plus
* Witches..old, ugly, new, pretty. I love them all.
