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: I like it. I love it. I think it worked out perfectly. Donโ€™t worry about too girly. What I mean by that is that really girly stuff.. like Barbie dolls. Thank you for a wonderful journal page. Pat๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
Response: Glad to hear you liked it. Happy swapping!

Comment: How lucky am I to have you for a partner! And thank you for being patient with me because of my Texas trip! It was a fabulous read with all the taped in notes and daily doing of the girls (they sound amazing!). I told you I would be writing you after the last journal extravaganza - and I was shamefully negligent. But, I am not going to bed tonight until I get a letter in the mail to you. Thank you soooo much!
Response: your very welcome,( soon you will have plenty to share about your grandchild too!)
Comment: Dorothy, you said that the journal did not turn out like you expected, but I don't know how it could be improved on!!! I love it! It's very obvious that you put a lot of love into it, and the techniques you used are so varied and interesting! So many textures and pockets and different types of embellishments; the edge treatment on the pages was great! I have to try that sometime. And the gifts you included left me speechless - the birds will LOVE the sunflower seeds! And I'm still trying to figure out how you got the extra pages into the book: you know the ones, shorter than the others, different type of paper, and some of it textured, and even some game/playing cards! Absolutely fascinating! Thank you for such a wonderful journal! This is very special to me!
Response: Oh , thanks so much for the great rating. The cover was what I disliked the most. My first vision was to have it covered with a real doilie that tied at the ends to close it, but all the dollies I had were too darn big. My first thought on the journal was to be an old fashion vintage type. Ha - wasn't at all. Happy Valentine's Day!

Comment: Well you certainly made up for mailing out a wee bit late! Thanks so very much for all of the seals...I really appreciate all of the different types and your explanation of each...I honestly never thought outside the box about ways to do these!๐Ÿ’—
Response: My boxes are always too full, which seems to force me to think outside the box (ha ha) glad you liked them. I have also found some with little dried flowers in them, or feathers and ribbons. Lots of great idea. Check them out on Pinterest.

Comment: Thanks for your letter and seals. ๐Ÿ˜€ I liked the beehive the best. ๐Ÿ˜€ Never heard about the crayons; will have to try it. Your seal stayed on perfectly. Glad to hear yโ€™all are getting more rain. Itโ€™s been raining here as well.
Response: Your welcome, have fun experimenting with the crayons.

Comment: Great variety of Christmas stuff!! Thanks so much!
Response: Your welcome
Comment: Dorothy I wish I had a million hearts to give for this amazing mini! I love all the cool items you shared with me about your holiday and canโ€™t wait to try that recipe! Who knew about Pinto beans! Happy Holidays to you!
Response: You are very welcome Amy. That was a fun swap glad you hosted it. I think it would be a fun one for an old fashion Valentine's magpie journal.. (Hint, hint)
Comment: Thank you so much, I feel absolutely spoiled! I agree, it doesn't feel like Christmas for me either. Galt has been on my radar for years-but we may get lucky and move out of state once my DD graduates from HS. Hope you get snow soon-that is one thing I would like to admire from a distance lol!
Response: Your welcome. ๐Ÿ˜„ Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„
Comment: Thanks for telling me about your walk. Waw, you live in a beautiful area. Wish we had such over here. Happy swapping!
Response: You must have forested areas don't you? I guess I better do some research! Merry Christmas ! ๐ŸŽ„
Comment: Thank you for these lovely images!
Response: Your very welcome, hope you are able to put them to good use.

babyblues65 rated for Stamped Images - Newbie friendly on Nov 14, 2018
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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.
