About Me

Hello, My name is Dorothy Hunt.

I really am (I believe) much more creative than my user name! Had I known we could have chosen a fun-cute name I would have picked something like: Walker of the woods - or Wanderlust seeker - Not in Oz - Crazy Me or even Wacky Grandma !!!!! Anything but boring ole DorothyH. But... I am stuck with it now. I am a wife - mother of two boys (Men actually -40 and 31 years) and a grandmother of three (21 year old grandson, 4 and 6 year old grand daughters). I live 30 miles from town - in the mountains of Umpqua Oregon. It is absolutely beautiful here!


My mother got me started on althered books many years ago. I joined a round robin of ten, doing a page in each persons book, I had so much fun doing the swap even though I never got MY book back :(.

I found this site looking for another round robin type adventure). I have been here for quite a few months now and Oh my Goodness I am having so much fun.

I love afternoon tea parties, the great outdoors, hiking, kayaking, picnicking, fishing, gardening and so much more.

I am a very happy person. I find pleasure in the simple things in life. Family time, picnics, board games, sittin on the porch.

I love doing crafts of all sorts, if I get board of one I move to another. Willing to try all types of new stuff. Right now I am very much into making journals and altered books. I do some sewing - but I HATE too.


Seam binding - Lace - Fibers - (no yarn please) - Embellishments - Charms - Vintage - 1900's - 20's - 30's - 40's - 50's - Old letters - Old hankies - Craftsmen houses - Ephemera - Tickets - (bus, train, raffle, theatre etc.) - Victorian items - Clothing - Books - Calling cards - Cameos - Titanic - Houses - Gardens - Nature - Flowers - Birds - Butterflies - Dragonflies - Fairies - Birdhouses - Birdcages - Ravens (crows too) - Mermaids - Tags - Heart shaped rocks (including stories where found, or left) - Grave yards, photos of headstones with unique epithets - Love all colors but prefer pastels -pinks, blues, green, purple and browns and creams - Noisy paper - thin crisp, makes noise when you turn the page ( is that silly or what?) - graphic 45 paper - Cute buttons - FALL ( how could i forget) love, love ,love, fall - Halloween - Santas (still believe in him) - Washi tape -

I am now at a place in life where I am able to do more traveling, would love any travel info from your area whether it be another country or from my own state of Oregon.

THINGS I DONT LIKE: (not to be rude but) -

scented items (give me a headache) perfumes, candles, lotions, soaps, air fresheners, cigarette smoke. (DRYER SHEETS) - asian art - nudes - disney - religious items - plastic beads - political themed items - make up - fingernail polish - cutesy - kawaii, hello kitty, precious moments, cartoony items - bloody - sadistic - animal prints - Sticky notes -

Comment: Wow! Oohs and Aahs too! This altered file folder is a beautiful work of art as well as the journal tucked inside. I really love what you sent and I'm impressed with your talent. I'll be looking at this over and over and showing it to my friends. I will use it when I think of something very special to put in it. Thanks for such a lovely gift. I'm throwing my hat full of hearts up in the air to you!
Response: Phew, so glad to hear that you liked your package, I didn't read anything in your profile about journals so I wondered if I was making a mistake sending it to you. Thanks so much for all the kind words, I had looked up file folders on Pinterest and there are some that are really beautiful. That was the fastest package I ever mail out too. You weren't suppose to get it till Friday!
Comment: Omg this is the best swap of the year! You are an artist and we have so much in common!
Response: Well, so nice to hear that you liked the journal. Everyone has a different idea about what makes an artist. I feel I should be able to give drawings three dimensional - ncis to be a good artist. I love to see people be able to. Quickly draw something that actually has shape, shading ( in the right places) and such. But it takes me a darn hour to be happy with a darn stick figure. All set for the next swap!

Tverne05 rated for Napkin swap on Oct 30, 2019
Comment: Thanks so much for the napkins. They are all lovely but my favorite is the fox 🦊 with the hat and writing on it.
Response: The fox one is a god one isn't it. I painted a large-ish flat rock yellow and decopauged it and have it in the garden. I got that package at a Yellowstone gift shop. Have fun playing with them.
orneryswife rated for JJJ: Page Tabs on Oct 29, 2019
Comment: These are so different from what I envisioned when I set up the swap, but I love them all! I hope you enjoyed the process and your struggles at least taught you something. 😊 I also struggled with them, cutting the first set on the wrong side. I learned a lot, and look forward to using these that you made!
Response: I did have fun making them, and even included some in a journal for another swap I am working on. Thanks for hosting it.
Barbara rated for Mail Tag Swap #14 on Oct 12, 2019
Comment: Hi Dorothy, Thank you for reading my profile and sending thoughtful and beautiful ephemera. I especially like the Irish coin and blue jay feather. They are sparking many ideas for using them on book marks and journal pages.
Response: Your welcome Barbara. I always have a hard time trying to figure out what best to send. Glad you liked the feather, I was wondering whether or not to go ahead and put it in the envelope

Hi Dorothy, Just checking to see about the VJP 4x4 February page I sent on Feb 9th. Since we both live in Oregon I can't imagine it's taking this long. Monday will be ten days. Have a photo if needed. Please rate so I know you've received and hope you're enjoying everything! Thanks! Bonnie

I want to thank you for the lovely Christmas gifts you sent to me. They were actually my favorite gifts received this year and I want you to know how much I appreciate them. The journal you made is so incredibly gorgeous and creative. I have been wanting one for a while now and will treasure it. The handkerchief bunting is absolutely exquisite! I love it. I also adore the venetian mask and the angel shell pin is so sweet. Thank you so very much.
