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 my 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, 30 years old and love meeting people, other countries and other cultures. I'm so excited to join Swap-bot, hope to do some amazing swaps and create great memories.
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 recently got engaged so everything wedding themed if a plus for me. 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.
(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!

I LOVE FOOD
I love all fruits & vegetables with the exceptions of : Papaya and Turnip
Coming from Mexico, I love spicy food!
I have no allergies which makes me very happy since I can eat anything. I am not afraid of trying anything at all, I have eaten a lot of different things, chicken, beef, pork, rabbit, moose, all kinds of seafood (my fav is octopus), austrich, veal, lamb, snake, etc. Most people wont like it but my fav meal is beef tongue.
Food: I will take it all!.
I like candies (I specially love the soft chewy kind like starburst)
All kinds of tea (except chamomile)
All types of spices
My favorite season is Christmas. I am a Huge Fan of ANYTHING-Pumpkin spiced.
I dont have any problem with alcohol or cigarrets, actually even though I dont smoke I usually buy a pack of local smokes while traveling as a souvenir.
I am Roman Catholic so I dont mind any Christian/Catholic items yet I am not interested in switching religions :)
I LOVE: coloring, crafts, calligraphy, cooking, baking and many more things...
I usually like 99% of what I am sent, no matter the colors or picture. I am very flexible, I can do dark or pastels.
I dont mind any picture unless it is obscene or pornography.
Anything but ad postcards. Not a fan of them
I am open and flexible about receiving anything you would like to send :)
I prefer postcards sent NAKED & STAMPED UNLESS you feel you need to protect the pc like in hand made cases, in such cases I am fine with receiving in an envelope.
I specially like:
All Animals (but LOVE elephants, wolves, dragonflies and butterflies)
Literature, authors, writers, calligraphy
Architecture in general
ANYTHING WITH ELEPHANTS, pandas, wolves, dragonflies and butterflies
Pocket letter goodies to decorate them, Embellishments, ephemera, die cuts, fabric, Rhinestone Beads, Crystal Gems, etc
Pocket Page Protectors (or similar) for pocketletters, (They are not sold in Mexico)
Pictures,postcards,about any beautiful place on earth! TRAVELING is my passion and love to get inspiration from other people.
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.
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. In exchange I will not send one of course because I wouldnt know where to start but I can offer you many fun things from Mexico so just ask!
