About Me

I’m just a crazy and out of sorts mom, who’s always going through some sort of phase along my journey.

I post about my family, pets, shenanigans, mental struggles, metaphysical things, current obsessions, saving money, and other random things. I also do what I can to help support my friend’s local bands, books, and businesses.

I’m constantly updating, so please come back anytime to visit my madness.

My name is Jessie. I once used the name Rhiana Ruby while writing for a Metaphysical newsletter many many moons ago. Several call me Sparkles, but I’m known as Lady Skullshine by a few. My favorite name and role is Mom to my two daughters, Haley 22 and Scarlet 15.

*** aka LadySkullshine ***

LadySkullshine originated in 2011. The name was created from brainstorming with a few others, with a combination of lilmisunshine, 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 started managing the band Apocryfiend, and was also diving into a ton of promoting and photography. I really wanted to help my local metal music community. I became friends with a lot of them and saw their struggles. I created this site to house their info. I also helped to make and sell merchandise, and did some promotional modelling too as a Lead Farmer Girl, and a BizR Babe. This all quickly spread to other music genres beyond PA, as well as to local businesses. I was even asked to present a music award two years in a row.

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 close friend Skip’s horror movie with my oldest daughter. You can actually find us on IMDb, which is pretty cool.

All of these experiences have been a lot of fun, emotional, and educational. I also got to meet 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.

Over time, I no longer needed my site, but I couldn’t bear to let it go. I’m a packrat. I left it up and continued to support everyone by keeping their info displayed.

A little bit ago I decided to use my site again and completely revamped it. I thought about changing the name, but didn’t get very far. My focus last year was on saving money and making a few extra bucks. I’m currently changing things up a bit again. Please check back for updates.
