About Me


Back in December 2016, I had a lot of liver issues that kept me going back and forth from the hospital. I missed and sent late some swaps so this is the reason of my poor rating. I didn't came back to Swap-bot until October 2017 and resent just not to leave my partners empty handed but was not able to reverse the poor ratings.

I always send on time and re send if needed. Please don't let these ratings mislead you. Always message me if in doubt, I usually take pics of everything before putting it in the mailbox.



My name is Elena, I'm Mexican, 35 years old and love meeting people, other countries and other cultures. My native language is Spanish but I speak English and Portuguese as well.

I currently have no kids. I also have no pets; unfortunately I work long hours so it doesn't seem fair for pets to be home alone :( but I would love to adopt a dog one day.


I have 2 elephant tattoos and about 150 elephant figurines that I've been collecting for years from anywhere in the world and any material, from wood, wire, crystal, paper, fabric, etc.


(USA) I have noticed it takes around 6-8 weeks to receive mail from Mexico so please be patient.

(Rest of the world) I have noticed it takes around 8-10 weeks to receive mail from Mexico so please be patient.

I have no problem re sending if needed, so let me know if more than 2 months has passed and you haven't received anything.

Thank you for your patience!

Likes & Dislikes

In general, I love elephant, pandas, wolves, flowers, vintage, Christmas, colorful stuff, kawaii stuff, caligraphy, art, etc

I LOVE FOOD, Coming from Mexico, I love spicy food! I have no allergies and I am not afraid of trying anything.

In terms of colors, I am very flexible, I can do dark or pastels. There is not one color I dislike.

My favorite season is Christmas. Also, I am a Huge Fan of ANYTHING-Pumpkin spiced.


  • Anything but ad postcards. Not a fan of them

  • I prefer postcards sent NAKED & STAMPED UNLESS you feel you need to protect the pc like in hand made cases or if indicated in the swap, in such cases I am fine with receiving in an envelope.

I specially like:

  • Flowers

  • All Animals

  • Art

  • Literature, authors, writers, calligraphy

  • Quotes

  • Beautiful landscapes

  • Funny/Joke pcs

  • B&W photography


  • Postcards, pretty paper, envelopes, etc.

  • Anything beauty related, chapsticks, lipbalms, handcream, face mask, etc

  • Pocket letter goodies to decorate them, Embellishments, ephemera, die cuts, fabric, etc

  • Candy and chocolate (I specially love the soft chewy kind like starburst)

  • ANYTHING-Pumpkin spiced

  • Regional spices to cook

  • Tea/Coffee

  • Stationery

  • Stickers ( I like any kind, puffy or flat)(I DON'T like teacher/rewards, or promotions/ads)

  • Anything traditional from anywhere, that could help me get to know different cultures.

Comment: Love to hear your fitness journey :) Stay safe near the volcano, I hope you are always safe!
Response: Thank you! I am feeling very proud of myself although I must admit I started from a place of fear (of not becoming diabetic) instead of motivation, but I am getting there, step by step
Comment: Wow!! The guy asking for photos really ruined what sounded like a neat project! What a bizarre thing to do (send you all those photos). Thank you for sharing your experiences! I appreciate how dedicated you are to ensuring your swap partners have wonderful swaps!
Response: It was very weird, but I guess it was a very specific case that might not happened in another type of swap. We will never know LOL. Thank you rating and heart!
WoodlandBanshee rated for FPG: Scrapbusters! on May 30, 2023
Comment: Lots of fun little pockets, thanks! A good idea you had to send all three swaps in the same envelope. They were clearly marked as three swaps and they were all fun to go through! Take care
Response: I am happy the envelope got safe to you :) I thought it was funny to have the same partner for 3 swaps in one week!, it was cool!

Comment: I love this vintage botanical themed envelope flipbook! The only reason I did not choose the envelope flipbook for my partner was because I had made one before and wanted to try a new one. Thanks also for tucking in so many great items! Ill.use them all! Take care..
Response: I had the most fun creating this one!

Comment: Thanks for your weekly wrap up. Aww that sounds like a lot of work to clean the ashes but I hope that's all and you won't have a big disaster. Glad that you lost weight. Keep on going and you will be fine soon.
Response: thank you! I am trying really hard not to become a diabetic, And sweeping those ashes should count as exercise too!

Comment: Thank you so much for your swap! I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who thinks mail is sloooow! (I live in the desert of Southern California, closer to Mexico than much of the U.S! LOL. ) I also love we are name twins--well, same name, different spelling! <3 - Alayna :)

The best things take time! Thanks so much again. The pocket letter is super cute.

SAHCatMom on Oct 7, 2018:

Hi Elena, ? About adding pictures to profiles: I found the format and have tried posting several pictures and gifs found on Google, but many of them will not copy :(.
I know I am using the right format, but I am wondering if the images are copyrighted or something.?? I would love some feedback on this if you know what Iā€™m doing wrong! Thanks! Susan. Sahcatmom

Right now I am only doing letter swaps, and easy type 3 swaps, I was doing pocket letters BUT my last swap was a nightmare. Let me know if you want to do a private letter swap or something easy?

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET on Apr 18, 2018:
