About Me

Nice to meet you, internet wanderer. I'm Ahana, I'm into photography, DIY projects and TV marathons.

I have a cat (a super shy foster failure) and live with two flatmates in an apartment in NY. I love the city and the neighborhood I live in. Everything I want is in walking distance - restaurants, bubble tea cafes, the post office... ;)

The downside to affordable living in the city - I don't have a lot of storage space and am constantly trying to use up my crafting supplies as soon as I buy them. Part of the reason I joined Swapbot was to put the collection of stationery I've unwittingly hoarded to good use.

If anyone collects/scrapbooks mementos related to museums and shows (like tickets, brochures, etc.) let me know! I'm always amassing them and going through cycles of de-cluttering so I'd be happy to send it over :)

I've also recently embraced minimalism when it comes to certain things - trying Project 333 to shrink my wardrobe. Would love to hear from anyone who has experience with this lifestyle.

I love animals, have been vegetarian since I was 11. I like most things fantasy and weird. I'm not a huge fan of history but I enjoy fascinating facts, especially on subjects I like. Pop culture stuff is always fun.


I'll probably find a way to enjoy whatever you send but just to give you an idea of the things I like/love...

  • Tea (especially exotic and interesting flavors!)
  • Pressed pennies
  • Cat toys/treats (to spoil my kitty)
  • Bath bombs (to spoil myself)
  • Magic/fantasy
  • Puzzles/games
  • Kawaii stationery
  • Crosswords
  • Poetry
  • Cute new postage stamps
  • Handwritten letters
  • Vintage/goth/steampunk designs
  • Typography art
  • Animal cruelty-free

Ultimately, I prefer things I can quickly use or experience rather than collect - but I do love pressed pennies!

Favorite Television

Some talking points ;)

  • Veronica Mars
  • Gilmore Girls
  • Orange is the New Black
  • Black Mirror
  • House of Cards
  • Cardcaptor Sakura
  • The Good Wife
  • Broad City
  • Game of Thrones
  • Jane the Virgin
  • Mr. Robot
  • Sherlock

Favorite Music

I have a fairly long commute at the moment, so music and podcasts pretty much keep me from going insane. Also love going to concerts once in a while. Some of the artists that make it on my loop:

  • Florence + the Machine
  • Imagine Dragons
  • Paramore
  • Lorde
  • Panic! at the Disco
  • The Lumineers
  • Emilie Autumn
  • Halsey
  • Stars
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Melanie Martinez
  • OneRepublic
  • Vampire Weekend

Favorite Crafts

  • Knitting (especially using jumbo/mega yarn)
  • Journaling
  • Hand-making cards for special occasions
  • Decorating envelopes
  • Creating vases from leftover yarn and used bottles
  • Minizines
  • Pocket Letters (new discovery)

Any ideas for new ones, feel free to reach out!

Comment: Thanks!
Comment: Ahana! I gave you a heart because I love all the things you chose for me! I love the cat zine and the tea and the washi tape- well, I like everything you put in there. On a sad note, the post office decided the envelope was too bulky, too heavy, and it "wouldn't bend". I was able to bend it, but they charged me anyway. I paid over $2 to pick it up, so just a caution to you for future mailings - your partner does not have to accept the mailing with postage due. But I love everything you put in there; it was a nice package! Thank you!
Response: Oh wow, I'm so sorry about the postage! I'm glad you liked everything and thank you for being generous with your heart!
