Welcome to Scattered Treasures! Thank you for stopping by; I hope you enjoy the treasures you've found.

I didn't know it at the time, but I'd finally gotten the guts to register a shop name exactly one week before I was laid off in February 2012. I had no direction or any idea as to what I'd sell, only that I needed to open a shop as a creative outlet.

I'm an artist, a collector at heart and a lifelong rock enthusiast. Painting slate and sorting corks all day fills those needs. Each piece of slate and every wine cork is beautiful and unique, with its own story to tell. I have a hard time parting with some of the treasures I find as I work with them, but that's the struggle of the collector, isn't it? So I enjoy them for a few moments, snap a picture to remember (& probably post it to instagram) and send them on their way to you.

A lot of you have stumbled upon my shop from Pinterest and the ever infamous ☆Black Rustic Wine Cork Coasters☆ I WISH I could make more and am working on finding the frame again. When I do, I promise to email each of you that are patiently waiting for an update!

I run my Etsy store full-time while taking care of my 3 year old, Adelaide, and my newborn, Nolan! I love staying home and working when they let me ;)
