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 10/10/2017

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 HUGE geek. I can be very sarcastic and snarky. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have many different obsessions.

Imgur

Random, specific things that I love: my husband and kids, Star Trek, horror movies, Vincent Price, black cats, bats, thunderstorms, Star Trek, the smell of patchouli, Star Trek 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.
* Firefly/Serenity
* Sherlock
* Doctor Who
* The Walking Dead
* Pikachu
* 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. 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

I am always looking to do private swaps for Star Trek stuff.

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

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!!

  • Star Trek postage stamps
  • Star Trek rubber stamps
  • basically anything Star Trek
  • 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")
  • Anything with Vlad Dracul.
  • anything with crows, ravens or bats.
  • 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.

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.
* 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.
* herbs. Again, Pagan that doesn't use something.
* 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.
* stickers for the same reason as paper bits. And my kids are beyond the age of liking/using/wanting them.
* ATCs unless it's Star Trek related for my scrapbook. I don't collect them otherwise.
* I like Star Trek and Star Wars, but they're not the same. I'm a bigger fan of Star Trek.
→ Star Trek. Star Wars←
The chances of finding something in the wild that is Star Trek is slim to none unless you're at a comic store or other geeky type store. Star Wars stuff is every where. I'm a Trekker. Chewbacca is not on Star Trek, Tribbles are.

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 eventually finished. I am also working on a Picard graphgan. 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.

Imgur
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.

Thank you for the Halloween PC and the the story of your Charlie Brown ghost costume (very awesome!) for my October AATW wishlist. It was very nice of you to think of me this month. A little wish is on it's way to you as well.

naturenerd3 on Oct 15, 2017:

Just saw your new swap, and testing to see if I can do this right

Mikki,

You have completely spoiled me for Flip Book fillings! I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to part with a bunch of those pieces because they are from when I was a kid! I guess I'm vintage?? Oh brother.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity!! Have a great weekend... Patty xo

Paige1900 on Sep 20, 2017:

Love the fantastic selection of teabags you sent for Sept wishes "A wish granted - USA" - Thank You!

kiddomerriweather on Sep 7, 2017:

Thank you for the August AATW PC with your favorite quote. I keep that quote in mind now and think of you when I do. <3 Sorry for the lateness. I was having issues and now my dad is in the ICU. It's very scary. Please send good things our way.
