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: 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 ๐Ÿ˜œ
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!๐Ÿ˜€
Comment: Hi Dorothy, Yay! I love, love, love the matchbook notepads you made for me! Thank you๐Ÿ˜ 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.

Blewfroglets rated for Goodies 4 ME & YOU!!! August on Aug 19, 2018
Comment: Thanks for all the Goodies! I will enjoy including them in my projects/journals. Just an FYI the postage wasnโ€™t enough. So bigger envelopes you may want to check with the post office when you mail just to be sure! Otherwise thanks again!
Response: oh know I hate when that happens to me - so I know how you feel about the extra postage! I will try to remember tomorrow to stick something in the mail to make up for it. So sorry about that ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Comment: Thank you so much for the letter and all the washi samples. I didn't have any Halloween ones so that is exciting to have some. Christmas is always good as are the other unique ones. Great swap!

Comment: Oh MY! Thank you so much Dorothy for the wonderful paperbomb and also the nice letter! That is awsome you play too, I have 1 pink soprano and 1 yellow concert uke. I started on the concert, but after I got my soprano I fell in love with it! The sound is much happier! I would love love love to play a banjolele! I know no one here that plays any instruments, so I don't get to play it like I should! I need to get the guts to take it to my work and play it there(nursing home) but im nervous still lol Thanks again! Hope to swap with you again soon!
Response: Oh you should take your ukes to work, they would love it. My sister and I played for my mom when I was taking care of my mother.

Vickyen rated for SMSUSA: Happy Mail May 2018 on Jun 3, 2018
Comment: Hi Dorothy! I really enjoyed your Happy Mail - it was like getting a letter from a friend!! We were just on vacation to FL and on the way there we drove through Cairo - the library was a beautiful building but yes, the rest of the area looks very poor, so sad when this happens to towns! If you have time when you are in St. Louis, maybe we could meet - I would suggest the St. Louis Zoo and Missouri Botanical Garden if you have time - the zoo is free and there is a cost for the garden but it is lovely! Thank you so much for the ncs, washi and the love letter - I just read about those today - very cool! I have not been to Oregon but have heard it is rugged and amazing - great things in my book! We are rural so I love the wildlife info - the hubby also "battles" with the wildlife for his garden!! I like to think we can share but I am sure as a gardner it gets old! Wishing you all the best on your garden and hope we get to visit someday! Thank you so much for the lovely Happy Mail - it made my day!! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Oh yeah, you got it, I sent another one like it at the same time that never arrived, I was afraid yours was going to be the same, I was a bit worried. Hope ya had a great vacation. Thanks for the wonderful comments and the tips about the zoo and gardens. ๐Ÿ˜œ

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.
