Crochet Bookmark

Lo nuevo de mis tejidos…

I haven’t had time to crochet. Being a busy mom, working and on top of that our recent move. Time is what I wish I had.

 

Last night I was contemplating on whether I should read or crochet. So what do I do? I crocheted a bookmark! What a great project to describe both of my biggest passions.

I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest. Yay! One completed pin, a million to go!

Here’s the pattern.

I used Lion Brand’s Bonbon Yarn, Green and Dusty Rose from the Nature package. It took me less than an hour to complete and I was able to get my crochet fix 😉

Unbreakable by Jenni Rivera

Unbreakable by Jenni Rivera

My husband gave me this book as an early birthday present. He wanted to wait until my actual birthday but he knew I wanted to read it right away. He was right. I’ve been a fan of hers since before she became really famous. Growing up in Southern California, I was exposed to her music and her toughness. I had found someone I could admire for her big “ovarios.” Upon receiving this gift from my husband I immediately knew I had to prepare myself mentally before reading.

Reading has been a passion of mine. Books and writing have been an escape and coming from one of my greatest idols that died in a tragic accident, I knew it was going to reach my most inner feelings and thoughts.

Yesterday I felt ready and I picked up the book while I was eating breakfast. I am a fast reader and by lunch time, with pauses and breaks to attend my toddler, I had read through half of the book. I picked it up again and by the time it was time to go to bed I was finished with it.

I was not disappointed. It was a genuine book. I was expecting it to be highly edited but Jenni’s voice was clearly visible. It didn’t have fancy vocabulary. It was as humble as she was.

I did find details even as a fan I didn’t know about. She was an extraordinary woman and mother. At the end of the book I couldn’t help but to feel sad that she is gone. At the same time I was glad she had left something as great as her writing.

I too hope to leave something special. It motivates me to continue blogging.

I encourage people to read her story. Superstars are also human. There is always a struggle to great achievement. And these struggles can too make us unbreakable.
