Crafty Chica Novena

Oh Crafty Chica... Our Lady of the Immaculate Glitter.
Oh ever Immaculate Crafter, Mother of many projects, Health of the Idle, Refuge of Creative, Comfortess of the Uninspired, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings. Look upon me with mercy. When you appeared in the grotto of the Craftstylish blog, you made it a privileged sanctuary where you dispense your favors, and where many crafters have obtained the cure for their idle hands, through both your written word and the photo tutorial. I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence to implore your crafty intercession. My beloved Crafty Chica, hold thy scissors aloft and obtain my request. I will try to imitate your virtues so that I may one day share your company and bless you in the eternal and boundless web universe.
