Today Is My Birthday!

Happy 45th birthday to me! 45?! And still sparkly!!

It really was an awesome day! It started with a birthday text from my Haley, chocolate chip cookies with Scarlet, flowers from my mom, randomly found notes and home made cards from my Scarlet and my fiance Sully.

I appreciate all the experiences throughout my life so far, good and bad. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot. No matter where life takes me, my greatest achievement ever will always be my babygirls. I’m beyond proud and grateful, and would be lost without them!

Thank You

I wanted to send out a quick thank you to everyone.

I’ve noticed a recent increase in the amount of traffic on my site. It’s been a while. This is really exciting to me, especially while watching the transformation of how much things have changed.

I originally created this site voluntarily to help promote local bands and businesses. That was many years ago. I thought it would be a great platform to display their information, promotional ads, and photos. I also did a lot of photo shoots for them, handed out promotional materials, made merchandise in my home, and even managed a few bands as well. It was fun, interesting, educational, emotional, and sometimes aggravating. But overall, I’m grateful for the experiences.

Why did it all end?

Eventually, I started a new job and had to cut back on my volunteering. I had just started to actually make a few dollars and take on some more serious projects, however I had to rethink my life. I needed the income for my family and they needed my time with them. Nearly all things outside of that had stopped.

At that point, I should have closed my site. I’m a hoarder and I didn’t want to give it up. I liked having my own site to do whatever I wanted. I had no idea what that was for several years, so it laid dormant. Every so often, I would move a few things around or post a note that it was under construction, but that would be it. I think I tried a new direction once but that went nowhere.

Where to go from here?

Just recently, I decided to massive change the content. Of course, I kept some tidbits of the original LadySkullshine Entertainment site in the archives and the About Me page. I’ve shifted gears to helping others to save money and to make a few bucks. I also have a page displaying the coins that I have for sale on eBay. There is now a page dedicated to the awareness of certain conditions. This exists because they greatly affect my life in one way or another. I plan to add a lot more content when I have more time.

I often toss around the idea of posting things or not. I wonder if anyone cares what I have to say or share. Then I get the notifications that tell me that others are reading and liking my posts. That means a lot to me. It inspires me to continue sharing whatever the next adventure brings.

Again, I really want to say thank you and that I am so very grateful.
