LSE began with helping out the local metal community and local businesses with promotion & photography.
Now, I’m sharing some financial help & random thoughts while spreading awareness & learning a few things along the way.
Jessie aka LadySkullshine
My name is Jessie and I’m really not very interesting. Hippy child of the 70’s. Mama bear to my two baby girls (20 & 13). They are my everything. I have a very protective and loving fiance. He’s been the inspiration behind my Numismatics page. We also have an awesome service dog. He’s a black lab/pit mix, named Bastian. I love animals, music, collecting fairies & glassware, learning new things, saving & making extra money, & helping others. I’m obsessed with taking pictures of everything possible, Alice in Wonderland, Zenescope comics, Guardians of the Galaxy & Iron Man, Ancient Aliens, sparkles, crystals, spreadsheets, & technology. I’ve been given nicknames such as Sparkles, Jilly (Family Guy), Kelly Bundy, to name a few. I also used the name Rhiana Ruby briefly (about 13 yrs ago) while writing for a newsletter. I’m not a sports fan & can do without TV mostly. It’s just background noise, unless it’s the news or very particular shows/movies.
So, that’s really it, that’s me.
Then There’s The Question Of Who’s LadySkullshine?
LadySkullshine, the name itself, originated around 2010. It came out of brainstorming with a few others. We threw around a combination of lilmisunshine and skulls and I forget the rest. We joked about it, but it stuck and people started to know who I was by that name. At the time, I was in between jobs. I had just started managing a band and was diving into a ton of promoting and photography. I wanted to help the local metal music community in the Lehigh Valley, PA. I became friends with a lot of them and saw their struggles. I then created this site to house their info. I also helped to make and sell band merchandise, did some modelling, and anything else I could to help out. This quickly spread to other music genres beyond PA, as well as local businesses.
After returning to work, things tapered off a bit over time until I was no longer actively involved. The last thing I really did was a few years ago when I starred in my friend’s horror movie Camp Hideaway Massacre 2018, with my oldest daughter. You can actually find us on IMDb, which is pretty cool. All of these experiences have been a great mix of fun, emotion, education, and I met a ton of people over the years. Even though those days are over, it’s still pretty cool that you can now Google LadySkullshine and you’ll find a whole lot of my work.
I couldn’t bear to let my domain go. I’m a packrat. I left my site up and continued to support everyone by keeping their info displayed. I recently decided to use my site again and completely revamped it. I’m slowly minimizing the old LadySkullshine Entertainment archival, to make room for new content. I thought about changing the name, but didn’t get very far. My site has now shifted focus on financial related tips, items I’m selling, awareness of several disabilities that affect my life, random thoughts, along with anything else I decide to add at some point. My mind is always all over the place so who knows where that may take us.
