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 -

Aalicia rated for Friendship Garden on Mar 16, 2020
Comment: She sent a very beautiful package with lots of seeds she deserves a 10 not a 5 ! Thank you Dorothy

NRGordon rated for Friendship Garden on Mar 11, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the nice seed assortment; for your note and; the lovely quotes. I will plant the sunflowers in one area and everything else I get in another single plot. I keep several flowering perennials for the hummingbirds and butterflies and I plant annuals for them and for a pretty. I gave up on trying to grow vegetables years ago.
Response: Sounds like you have a very nice flower garden, would love to see it, I am a big fan of gardens. How sad that you gave up on veggies. You should just plant one or two between the flowers so you can be happy if they work out but not too dissappointed if they don't. Fresh grown veggies are the BEST,
isabellasnow rated for MJS: Flowish Journal - US on Mar 8, 2020
Comment: Dorothy, this Flowish journal is GORGEOUS! You included so many beautiful papers and embellishments! I love the Daphne's pages, especially the one with the little duck and bunny fold-ups. That fox napkin is so unique and I just can't wait to use everything tucked in the bags. You have done an absolutely wonderful job on this and I'm so lucky to be the recipient. Thank you so much; I'll be going through this beauty for some time to come!
Response: Your very welcome kristy, I love the Daphne magazine pages too. Any chance I get to buy it I buy two so I can share. The fox napkin has been a big hit with everyone so far. Hope you are able to make plenty of nice things. Have fun.
nanadiana rated for Friendship Garden on Mar 7, 2020
Comment: Thank you so very much for the seeds and nice letter! I can tell that gardening is your passion. The tiny seed packets that you made are darling! I'm excited to get them in the ground and see what they grow into. Thank you!
Response: Oops some how I forgot to answer you back on this. Your very welcome, hope your garden grows well this year and you find a few surprises.

Kalalinga rated for UHM: Altered File Folders on Jan 16, 2020
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.

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.
