Welcome to my blog! My name is Jessica and I am the Owner of JMO Creations. I specialize in handmade one of a kind crochet treasures. I have been crocheting for full time for about 2 years now. I learned as a child and didn't really pick it up. I have also been a knitter for 15+ years. I no longer knit do to arthritis but still love to dabble in it from time to time. I started this blog for my customers as well as the public as a way to share my patterns, projects and products. Everything I make is done so with love. My crochet is my art and I always love the feeling when a project is finished and it brings a smile to someones face. I will share pictures of my items when they become available as well as patterns by myself or others. I also love to see other peoples project pictures as well as stash pictures.
I am 33 and married to a wonderful man named DJ. We have 2 cats Purdy and Tipsy who are both Maine Coon cats. I have been disabled for nearly 4 years now and pass the time by making wonderful handmade crochet item. I put my love and time into every item. I love to listen to music while I crochet as it gives me insporation.
