Hi. Iâ€™m JoDitt Williams. Yes, JoDitt is my real name that my parents gave me at birth. I really like it because it has always delighted me to be â€śunique.â€ť Plus, I love who I was named afterâ€¦ my maternal grandmother, â€śGranny,â€ť and her sister, â€śGranny Jo.â€ť My grandmotherâ€™s real name was Jewell, but her nickname was â€śDitt,â€ť which is what everyone called her. I asked her how she got her nickname and all she said was, â€śI donâ€™t know. I guess cuz I was so little.â€ť Her sisterâ€™s name was Jo, so my mom thought it would be great to name a daughter JoDitt. I have an older brother and two younger sisters, but none of them have a name as cool as mine.
Iâ€™m not sure if it was inherited or just â€ścaught,â€ť but there is no doubt that I got my creativity from Granny, Granny Jo and from my mom. The three of them were always making somethingâ€¦ everything from sewing cute matching dresses for me and my sisters and cousins, to oil paintings, to crocheted afghans, to handmade dolls, jewelry, quiltsâ€¦ the list goes on and on. I have such fond memories of trips to fabric stores and looking through magazines for ideas, then getting to help with such cool projects.
I have always loved making things that are cute, sweet, charming, girly, frilly, colorful and cheerful. And now I am combining that with my passion for art, graphic design, and The Word. (because Jesus IS The Word!)
It is my desire to cultivate DELIGHT in Godâ€™s Word and help women fall in love with The Word (Jesus) because it has made such a huge difference in my life. On my blog, those passions manifest themselves in posts about Coloring with Jesus, Bible Art Journaling and Pretty Power Prayers. That is why I created a "Delight in the Word of God" Devotional Coloring Book/Journal for Adults. And why I offer Printables and Traceables for coloring, Bible journaling and decorating your home in my Etsy Shop.
Hereâ€™s a few more tidbits about me:
Three words that describe my style:
Colorful â€˘ Cheery â€˘ Charming
The Pantone color that most reflects my personality:
Pantone 14-1911 Candy Pink
If I were a pattern Iâ€™d be:
A colorful and whimsical pattern of hearts, flowers, swirls and squiggles
My favorite keyboard shortcut:
F3 (or a fast swipe to my top left corner with my mouse) so I can see all my windows at once. I always have so many windows open at once that this really saves time in finding the window I am looking for.
My biggest vice:
Night Owl tendenciesâ€”Staying up late at night to design, read, pray, build my website, blog, scrapbook, or work on other creative projects. And therefore I do not like to get up early in the morning.
When not designing I am:
Spending time with my family, going for walks (only when it is warm and not too windy), enjoying the sunshine, reading, checking email, making lists, getting lost in Pinterest and design blogs, thanking God, and counting my blessings.
