Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Naomi, herbalist by trade, trouble maker by hobby. Valos asked me to keep you fine folks updated on his crafty activities from here on, so you're stuck with me. Lucky you!
Lately, Valos resembles a man possessed. Oh, I'm a healer, you're thinking, so why don't I just heal him and be done with it. How clever. A little cabin fever never hurt anyone, now did it?
Valos spends hours hunched over large pieces of wood, sawdust flying everywhere - and I mean everywhere. He only pauses his frenzied sanding to slather on a fresh coat of stain or polyurethane. The stinging scent is enough to drive any sane woman mad!
Ah, but his feverish efforts are not in vain. He'll have a fair lineup of finished staves to show off come faire season.
His aqua hued, ocean-themed staff is marvelous, and I shall be sad to see it go once someone buys it. I'll take care not to get too attached, lest someone need to pry it from my grip later on.
There are several more staves in the works, including four ironwood pieces he is refining for a rustic yet elegant finish.
Another staff I look forward to seeing completed soon is a spiral-topped work of wonder. Words don't do it justice, so I won't even try. Pictures of this and the others will be up on both the blog and the finished work page soon!
That's all for now! Fare thee well,
