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!

THE MOUNTAINS ARE CALLING AND I MUST GO! fits me to a tee.

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 have 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.

THINGS I LIKE

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: Hi Dorothy, Yeah...thw luck of the draw to get my name again. Guess the assignments are computerized. Received your tag flip.and I'm loving it. Lots if fun goodies. I especially enjoyed all of the quotes you used! Another thing I want to ask you about...how did you make those 2 large stickers, one has a birds nest and the other one bird eggs, wondering what paper you used and if the background was made with sticker paper? Thanks again for everuthing!
Response: Your welcome. I thought that was an interesting swap - I don't know why but I kinda got stuck with it for awhile then it all finally came together?

Comment: Dear DorothyH, WOW! And many, many thanks!! β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈ. You are my Detash Heroine! It will take me a while to start on the dresses, as i do them marathon style, and I have a few other projects first. I intend to send you pictures of the sundresses. Beautiful banana paper. Believe it or not, I too have made paper from banana peels. Friends froze and saved them for me. It is an involved process that is more suited to my old lab than my home! And the trims! And boxes! I am in awe of your generosity. Again, many thanks. I am very happy 😊.
Response: So glad you are happy with everything, happy to know it will all be put to good use and yes I would love to see the dresses you make.

Comment: I love love love this book. The way you put it together and wrapped it up into a little package was awesome too. I will PM you.
Response: So glad you like it, wasn't sure if it was going to be a hit or not. I like wrapping some of the swaps - it's kinda like presentation when it comes to food - the better it looks the better it taste. With the swaps it just seems a little more special if it's wrapped like a gift. Hope you make good use of it.

Disregard the previous comment which says nothing. I am trying to figure out how to add a photo to a comment.

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.

I received the cutest surprise envelope in the mail!! Thank you so much - that's one I'll be keeping.

Thank you for the playing cards and washi envelopes (cutest tape!) too. I haven't started that swap yet - your design will help me in creating mine. Thanks for the nice surprise!

You reached out to me on the Wacky, Silly & Unusual Holidays-June out of the kindness of your heart, because I missed the deadline. If I could reach through the internet I would give you a huge hug. Thank you so much for my gifts. I love the tea cups, they will be added to my curio cabinet collection. As well as the book. Bless you my swapbot partner. If I could, I would rate you a 5 with lots of.❀️❀️❀️
