About Me

Herro, I'm Cindy aka purrincup! I've been with swap-bot for a while now, but I took a break the last 5 years - as of May 2019 I am back. I joined because I was looking for swaps to participate and this is one neat little place for just swaps, exactly what I was looking for. I went a little crazy at first, but I am now focusing on swaps that align more with my interests. I LOVE writing letters, and I would love to find friendships through penpaling.

I am living in sunny California in the USA. I currently live in a small-ish town. I'm from the Bay Area in CA, and I guess I consider myself a city girl. Our town is known for its outdoorsy activities like cycling and lake recreation. I am a mom of a little boy and wife to a bigger boy. I spend my limited free time learning new cooking recipes, gardening, and scrap-booking.

About My Swapping ๐Ÿ’Œ

I'm left-handed so sorry if some of my letters have smudges on them! I try hard to keep my handwriting as neat as possible. Also, for this same reason I don't write with any fancy gel pens or markers for fear of smudging.

I do not own any pets and I do not smoke anything so you can rest assured the happy mail you get from is allergy-friendly and smoke-free!

Update: - We now have hermit crabs, but we don't let them roam around and nor do I do my snail mail stuff around them so there shouldn't be a pet allergy issue. ๐Ÿฆ€

2019 profile hello #9

Hello to another HP fan from a fellow Slytherin. I to went a little overbroad when I first started swapping. I think its easy to do specially when on gets really excited about it! I finally got all caught up with my swapping and plan on doing the same thing as you. Taking a few steps back and sticking to the ones that really interest me. My favorite hp quote is also by Dumbledore even though my favorite character is Draco. "For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud."-Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban. I love this quote so much because I can just picture the beautiful astronomy tower each time I read it. I hope you have an amazing summer. -Allie aka ablev92
