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 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!
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:
I specially like:
Literature, authors, writers, calligraphy
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)
Regional spices to cook
Stickers ( I like any kind, puffy or flat)
Anything traditional from anywhere, that could help me get to know different cultures.
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
