WE’RE PUBLISHING A CROCHET BOOK!!!
My amigurumi designs will be featured alongside 11 other designers’ patterns in a super cute crochet book! :D Amigurumipatterns.net has been working really hard this summer to collaborate with all of us designers, spread the word, and gain support for this project. After hosting a funding campaign for this past month, we’ve met our goal! THE BOOK WILL BE PRINTED! WOOHOO!
So far, about 300 people have ordered the printed book, 65 people have ordered the e-book, and 107 people have ordered the tote bag! :D
If you’d like to get your hands on a copy of this book (or 5) before the prices go up and before we run out, check out our Zoomigurumi project before SEPTEMBER 29th!
All books will arrive before Christmas, so these are perfect gifts for the crafty people in your life (or yourself)! ^__^
Please visit my Facebook Fan Page for more information: A Morning Cup of Jo Creations. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thanks so much for your support, and I can’t wait to see the animals you make! :D
September 26, 2012.
I don’t know if anyone will see this post on their dashboard since I haven’t been posting lately… but hi anyway! :) It’s been a while! Life’s even more hectic now than it was LAST school year, and those of you who’ve been following my Tumblr for that long can probably imagine why I haven’t found time to update my blogs. @__@ I apologize for disappearing, and I will try to drop in more often. :) I hope you’ve been doing well!!!
I made a tiny photo collage to give you a glimpse of what I’ve been up to in my life outside of Tumblr. Photos of school, work, and taking exams were left out because I’d rather not relive those memories. :P My summer highlights included a trip to Hawaii, a trip to Mammoth, a trip to Yosemite, rescuing a kitten, and the invitation to get my crochet pattern designs published in a book! YIPEEEE! :D I updated my Facebook Fan Page throughout the summer if you’d like to see what’s been happening in A Morning Cup of Jo Creations. :)
I’ll tell you all about the new amigurumi book in the morning!!! You can never have too many crochet books, right?! :P If you’d like to see our book release video and read about our project before tomorrow morning, here’s a link for you: Zoomigurumi!
See you soon! <3

Our Travel Log! May 20, 2012. Michigan, USA.
“This is the flower pin I made from your pattern! I am so in love with it, right now it’s on my school bag. I just wanted to thank you for writing up the pattern for me! :)” — Brittany
Yay! A Spring Flower has sprouted in Michigan! Thanks for sharing, Brittany! :D
Theres nothing worse than getting out of a hot shower or bath to have your toes frozen on a cold floor! A hand felted Alpaca bath matt is the ideal solution; Alpaca is wonderfully soft and because an Alpaca’s wool has hollow fibre’s it makes the felt feel warm to the touch.

My original “Spring Bunny” crochet pattern is now available on Craftsy!
“Spring Bunny” is the first amigurumi pattern that I’ve ever published!!! This is a huge accomplishment in my crafting life, and I want to thank you all for being so encouraging throughout this entire experience. I’m so happy that I feel like frolicking in circles right now, throwing imaginary confetti and singing my heart out — and that’s an understatement. :P These Spring Bunnies will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I hope that you’ll enjoy crocheting them as much as I did. ♥
Please come back and share photos of your bunny’s adventures!!! They’ll be featured in our “Travel Log” photo album on Facebook.
Thank again for your never-ending support and encouragement! ♥ ♥ ♥
