I’m just a crazy and out of sorts mom, always going through some sort of phase along my life’s journey.
My name is Jessie. I also once used the name Rhiana Ruby while writing for a Metaphysical newsletter many many moons ago. A few call me Sparkles, but I’m known as Lady Skullshine by others. My favorite name and role is Mom to my two daughters, Haley 22 and Scarlet 15.
I write mostly about whatever I’m currently obsessed with, along with things about my family, pets, shenanigans, mental struggles, metaphysical things, saving money, and other random things. I also do what I can to help support my friends’ local bands, books, and businesses.
I’m constantly updating, so please come back anytime to visit my madness.

*** aka LadySkullshine ***
For a few years, starting around 2011, I was known as LadySkullshine in our small local metal music scene. I would be the crazy girl in the mosh pit with the camera. Trying my best to capture all those awesome live moments, on and off the stage. (Thanks to all those who looked out for me!)
When I first started my venture, I was in between jobs. I really wanted to help my local metal music community. I became friends with a lot of them and saw their struggles. I took a lot of pictures for bands, did a ton of promoting, and created this site to house their information. About the same time, I also started managing the band Apocryfiend. I sort of jumped into everything head first to be honest. I helped out anywhere I could. I started to do photoshoots with models, made and sold 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 and educational. I also got to meet a ton of great 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.
