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: Dorothy, thank you so much. What a beautiful collection of stamped images. I LOVE the ones with the color. I felt kinship with you on the sticklers for the rules comment you made. I had someone hurt my feelings so bad I have decided to take a break from Swap Bot for a while. I'm not that sensitive and can take it, it just really opened my eyes up to some things and taking a break is better than quitting. Have a very blessed and safe holiday season!
Response: Hope you are able to make some fun stuff with the stamped images I sent. So sorry to hear about your trouble with swap bot. Wish I knew the answer to make things run smoother. Hope you are able to enjoy swap bot again soon. 🙂

Comment: I absolutely love it! Thank you for all of the fun goodies!
Response: Your welcome, I wanted it to stay closed without having to tie it, but that just wasn't going to happen. So glad you are happy with it. 🤗

Comment: Oh Goodness Gracious! What an amazing journal book. I feel like mine is an epic failure in comparison. You're right though, everyone has a different take on how to create them. I can't believe all the time and effort you put into my book. Be prepared for a lengthy letter back. Every time I read a new bit about you I was like "that exactly me, too!" I wanted to pick up the phone and start gabbing like we've known each other forever! I thought your first page with the mini windows containing bits about you was really cute. And I especially loved the mailbox with my letters. You amazed me and then amazed me again. Thank you so much. <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: Oh my, you are very welcome. Thank you for all the kind words. Glad you liked it. I try to send things worth receiving and at times when I am crafting, I have a hard time stopping! Would love to hear back from you 😜
Comment: Thank you so much for the letter and treats!! I loved reading your little letter (I adore the letter set you used!) And I just adore the banner and fall pieces to craft with. I already have ideas for them, haha! Thanks so much again!
Response: Aww your very welcome!😀
Comment: Hi Dorothy, Yay! I love, love, love the matchbook notepads you made for me! Thank you😍 I like how you used the autumn colors with the black contrasts, very striking. Love the embossing effects too! Thanks again!
Response: glad you like them. I just "re-found" my embossing stuff, I have so darn many supplies I forget about some. I don't know how I forget about it, the embossing makes such a difference at times.

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.
