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 💌

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. 🦀
