About Me

I am back after 3 months of my mom unexpectedly passing away on July 12th, 2023. I really appreciate the messages of support I have been receiving. Thank you as well for your patience while I was away. I have rated absolutely everything I have received and I am back to swapping and logging in regularly so I will be able to keep up with anything new.

Just in case my address looks "funny" The city I live in is called PUEBLA, it is the capital city of the state of Puebla, so it is correct to send to Puebla, Puebla (Kinda like NY, NY)



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.

I don't enjoy:

  • Teacher/rewards, or promotions/ads stickers
  • Ad postcards
  • Kid stuff like Dora the explorer or Frozen.
  • Chamomile tea


  • 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)

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

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.

Please contact me if you have not received your swap, I'd be happy to resend if needed

Comment: This is the package I ever received from swapbot. Wow. I love all the positivity, so much stuffed in the pockets, and the kind note. I love Mexico. I have family that is from a small town where the Basilica de Guadalupe is at, above D.F. of course. The food from Mexico is the best in the world.

lovetherain rated for Stickers and a Halloween Card on Nov 17, 2023
Comment: It arrived today! Thank you for the nice card and stickers. The spooky trivia was really interesting! The decapitated head was definitely disturbing. I might go ahead and Google rat kings. I'm sure I'll be grossed and creeped out I just looked it up. It is definitely weird. But I feel so bad for the mice :-( It said one group in Estonia was euthanized because they couldn't untangle them. So sad.
Response: Googling it it was a risk but now you know one more thing (that you could have gone without knowing) TY for rating and heart

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 I’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:

HIIIII long time no talk How are you these days?

I mailed the Christmas card private swap a month ago, I messaged you, and I never heard back from you, I dunno if you received my swap, or not, I am still waiting for yours to arrive. I see you have not been on swap bot since Dec. 16th, 2016. I would love to give you a chance to re send but i see your partially suspended with 3 1s. I hope your ok. Happy New year
