Hello! My name is Lorena and I live in Tampa, Florida. I'm 29 years old and have a wonderful boyfriend named Sean. Here is some info about me.
First off, I would like to explain my bad ratings. During that time I was going through some difficulties and had to move immediately during that time for my well-being and safety. I was not thinking about swap-bot during those difficult times. I would like to redeem myself and I hope that you will not look poorly upon me. I love this website and I love swapping and I will not do anything to jeopardize that, ever. Hosts of swaps I would like to participate in: If you would like I can send you a handwritten letter and a little gift (that matches your profile likes) before you let me participate in your swap. Let me know. :)
I'm vegan (no meat or animal by-products). I love swapping vegan recipes.
Things I like to receive:
-Geodes, minerals, abelone, fossils, animal bones and skulls (that died only of natural causes, of course)
-Handmade dreamcatchers (only handmade)
-vintage children's books
-beads (especially made of natural materials and stones)
-badges and pins
-homemade bar soap
-rubberstamps and hand carved stamps
Zines: You would pretty much be my best friend if you send me zines. I have a large collection and I want to continue to expand. I prefer personal, political, historical, DIY, artistic zines. But I'm definitely open to other zines as well.
-Knitted and crochet items. Especially granny squares
-Anything vegan (junk food, beauty products)
-Paper Crafts (ATC's, cards, envelopes, ephemera, anything vintage)
-Polka Dots ( I love a lot of things with polka dots. You can't go wrong sending me anything related to this)
-Mixtapes, records, mix cds: I'm open to a lot of different music and I LOVE discovering new bands. The types of music I enjoy most is Punk, hardcore, grindcore, crust, d-beat, older blues music and older country music (no new country please), Indie, Shoegaze, Folk Punk. I enjoy so much more than this so feel free to send me a mix of what you like and mostly likely I would like a few songs on it.

-BUTTONS (I collect buttons especially old and quirky ones)
