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: Thank you for the lovely envelope and ephemera! Including the vintage pocket and goodies was so such a sweet surprise. I also loved the aquatic envelope. Your thoughtfulness was totally above and beyond.
Response: Your very welcome 😋

Arabella rated for VS Vintage Collage Images on Apr 11, 2018
Comment: Your envelope arrived safely and Oh so many goodies!! I love all the vintagy images and can't wait to use them! And yes, there are a couple that might be challenging to use but I can always make envelope art with them if I can't think of an art project! Thank you so much, my Oregon sister from the south! (P.S. I do have to use my reading glasses for the tinier images!!)
Response: glad to hear they arrived safely, i was wondering about those that I taped on the outside, arugg I always seem to leave "something " out of my envelopes. Have fun with the challenges!
Comment: Dorothy! Oh my goodness! This is an amazing (and amazingly beautiful) vintage pocket chock-full of gorgeous goodies! I love that you put your own spin on the swap, and I'm thrilled to have been the recipient. Now...back to peeking in all the envelopes...
Response: Hope you have fun trying to use the goodies. Glad you liked the envelope even though it was not quite the way it was suppose to be :}
donetta rated for VJP: April 4x4 Vintage Journal Page on Apr 9, 2018
Comment: Dorothy, I love this journal page so MUCH! Of course, the crystal chandelier is my favorite part...oh, to live in one of those beautiful homes in Portland Heights! The suggestions of early spring...the nest with eggs, the beautiful cherry blossom...gorgeous! ETA: Yes! The crystal chandelier made it through the rigors of the USPS completely intact, in exactly the place you put it. Gosh, how I love to receive extras like that...you had a very generous swap partner!
Response: I am wondering if the chandelier made it through the mail, did it stay put.? I got that earring in one of my first swaps, knew then that I was going to use it one day as a chandelier. Glad you liked it, I was happy with that one too!

Comment: Thank you for the envelope full of goodies! I have already used a few things ^-^
Response: Your welcome, good to know you are using some already.
Response: Well I have no idea what happened to it, I did indeed mail it out, I quite remember because I DID almost miss you not realizing that we had two partners. I will definitely get a new envelope out in Monday's mail. Would like to do it today but I am going to have to go on a scavenger hunt! 😜
Comment: Thanks so much for the letter, love how you 'made' stationery! I do hope you get to see Glacier, it is fantastic. I suggest you go as close to the height of summer or a little later, or you won't be able to drive through the whole park because they will still be clearing snow! I took my parents in early June a few years ago and the pass was still covered in snow. Thanks for the lovely letter!
Response: Your welcome, Desirae. And thank you for the travel advice, I was thinking of beating the tourist traffic and going in May, but maybe I will wait for my June company to leave and go in July!
Comment: GREAT job!!! Vintage postcards, pretty clippings, fibers, stickers, and even washi tape!!!! It's feeling more like spring already, thanks so much!!!
Response: Your welcome, enjoy.

Comment: I was checking some of my swaps and realized I had not rated you for this one. I am so sorry. It is a beautiful collage with so many pretty elements. And your envelope was just amazing. Thank you so much!
Response: Oh, your welcome, I too have been guilty of letting a swap go a bit before rating 😱 so I have no right to be upset. Happy swapping.

Comment: Thanks for the long answers and look at your life. We have daily annoyance in common--goose poop. They're handsome birds but boy can they poop! I liked the bluebird on the envie.
Response: Your welcome June.
Comment: Wow - fantastic. You didn't sign your name anywhere so I had to do some detective work to figure out who it was from. Thanks for all of the "S" things. I will have fun using these items.

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

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.
