About Me

ABOUT MY POOR RATING

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.

Thanks!

Elena

My name is Elena, I'm Mexican, 34 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 learned about this website from another site called The bucketlist and found it interesting that people wanted to do swaps as a life goal so once I read it all I knew I had to join!

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 AM OBSESSED WITH ELEPHANTS.

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.

About MAIL FROM MEXICO

(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!

Favorite Movies

The Godfather (all of them) the bucketlist, Last Vegas,Danny the dog, the shining, Psychosis, Rosemary's baby, Vertigo, and many more

Favorite Television

Saturday Night Live, The tonight show (Jimmy Fallon), How to get away with murder, Greys anatomy, Criminal Minds, Bob's burgers, Family Guy, the Simpsons, etc

Favorite Books

Great expectations (Dickens) . Banana Yoshimoto, Jose Saramago. Latin american writers (Jose Agustin, Enrique Serna, Jorge Iibarguengoitia, etc)

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 love all fruits & vegetables with the exceptions of : Papaya and Turnip 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.

Postcards

  • 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

  • Literature, authors, writers, calligraphy

  • Quotes

  • Beautiful landscapes

  • Funny/Joke pcs

  • B&W photography

Whishlist

  • 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.

POCKET LETTERS

When I joined SwapBot I learned what Pocket Letters were. Thanks to @Johkup I got my first one and I'm in love with it!!!!!

I think they are beautiful and I am learning to do them so I am hosting a series of swaps to practice and see how you make them.

If you do them I would love a private swap for one of your creations. Just ask!

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 Iโ€™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?
