About Me

Hello, My name is Lorena and I'm 29 years old. I'm new to swap-bot but I'm really excited to start swapping!

More about me:

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 souvenirs

-vintage children's books

-old maps


-washi tape

-candles (extra points for soy candles)

-beads (especially made of natural materials and stones)


-badges and pins

-homemade bar soap

-pressed flowers


-old marbles

-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.

-Tea ( I like most teas except for fruity ones)

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

-reading: I enjoy receiving books. Especially southern crime (cormac mccarthy and Donald ray pollock) and scifi/dystopian novels (ursula le guin, Margaret atwood)

-Herb and Vegetable seeds

-Cactus/Cacti and Succulents

-I love receiving things with my favorite animals. Armadillos and vultures are my favorite.

Favorite Colors:

-Earth tones

-Burnt Orange
