Numismatic Updates

If anyone is interested, we have several coins available for sale. I finally had a moment today to update the Numismatic page and also added a Coins For Sale page.

My fiance Sully started all of this as a bit of a hobby, that turned into something that he could leave behind some day for my youngest daughter and I. He has been doing this for a few years now, while attempting to teach me a few things. He has done extensive research on everything we have. He examines and weighs each one, reads up on current pricing and news, watches videos to learn anything he can on particular coins or just numismatics in general. If he’s not sure of something, he won’t list it or will specifically state that he is unsure.

At this time, none of our coins have been graded. We have to decide which ones are worth it when we have the extra money to send them in. We have been listing them on eBay, OfferUp, LetGo, and a few other places. There’s really not a lot of physical coin places around anymore, but there’s a whole lot of scammers online making it even more difficult. They try to sell questionable coins for a ridiculous amount of money, showing a few blurry pics with little to no description. People are too scared to really deal with anyone and don’t want to take the chance on a legit deal. Our prices are set to sell with some profit, not to become rich over night.

Ready To Finally Begin This Next Journey

Now that I’ve spent a good portion of my day updating and rearranging my site, I can now write this and then accomplish a few things that I should have already done by now. I think I’m finally at a place where I can begin to actually blog more often and also add more content. I just needed to weed through all my old pages and posts first before I could even think about my new direction. There was still a lot of my old LadySkullshine promotional and photography portfolio. Cool to look back on, but I’m on another new journey once again. There have been so very many already, and I anticipate more since I’m constantly changing.

My next task will be to get my ebay items listed on here, along with more numismatic things, and a whole lot more about saving and making money. My fiance does extensive research in the numismatic realm. I usually just type what he says when it come to putting coins on ebay. I myself have recently spent ridiculous amounts of time on saving/making extra money. It is tedious at times, but it has definitely paid off.

That’s it for today. I must go check on my family and be productive before I am once again side tracked. Time is not at all my friend.

Who Would Read My Blog?

According to my next task, I’m supposed to determine the kind of person who would read my blog and what I would like to say to them. This is intended to help focus my thoughts and goals towards that specific person.

I know the assignments are cheesy, but my mind is all over the place. This helps me get used to blogging more and gives me something to chat about.

Honestly, I don’t know who would actually read my blog. I have no preference, as long as they bring no issues and enjoy their visit. My site has lived through about 10 years of changes. I could see all sorts of people reading it at one point or another, while I could also see none at all. That’s part of why I have gone back and forth with posting. While I’ve been pretty eclectic, I just don’t know that what I have to say is interesting enough to continue reading. Originally, this site was all about promoting others. Now, it’s more about what I would like share on my time. Content has shifted, but the idea of helping others is still there.

To those that are reading my blog, I’d definitely like to say Thank You and I appreciate it immensely. Please feel free contribute by liking posts and commenting.

Who Is LadySkullshine?

Since I have an About Me section, I didn’t intend to write this post. However, I signed up to learn more about blogging and my first task was to do this. So, who am I and why am I here?

For those who have no idea who I am, I’m LadySkullshine.

I suppose a good way to start is to tell you to google my alt name and you’ll find a whole lot of my work from over the years. I feel like that’s actually pretty cool for me to be able to say. The name originated around 2010 and came out of brainstorming with a few others. At the time, it was perfect for what I was doing. I had been recently unemployed, which created an opportunity to learn a few things and volunteer my time helping out local businesses, the local metal community, and a few things outside of that. I did a ton of promoting and photography. That was my original primary focus. From there, I began to take on a bit much but still persisted. I had managed a couple bands, did some modelling, a ton more photography, ticket and merchandise sales, announcing at music awards, made shirts and hoodies in my home once, and a few more things that had gone on for quite a few years.

It started to die down slightly when I got back to working but I insisted on continuing to help out wherever I could. When my time with family was compromised, I had to end most of it. My babygirls are my life and they always come 1st. The last thing I really did was star in a my friend’s horror movie with my oldest daughter a few years ago. You can actually find us on IMDb, which is also pretty cool.

Over these long years, my site has been restructured several times as far as content. In an effort to hang on to the history of my site and of course to showcase my past work, I have saved some of the old LadySkullshine in a separate archival section. The rest of my site has shifted focus on awareness of several disabilities that affect my life in one way or another, saving money any way possible, Numismatics, along with anything else I decide to add along the way.

Now that I have gone through the process of writing this, I’m remembering things and realize there is a lot more to my history that is actually very interesting. I may continue this post with more details at a later time.

Stay Tuned For More LadySkullshine!

Thank you!

Music Mix 🎶

This mix is very much eclectic, so don’t be shocked when it goes from a current country song, into an old hair metal band from back in my day lol.

Update: I’m not really on Spotify these days due to subscription pricing & massive ads. Pandora is always my go-to favorite.

New Beginnings… Again

Once Again, I Am Revamping My Site

Whether you are new here, or a long time follower of LadySkullshine,

THANK YOU!

Please do excuse the chaotic mess that’s going on. It shall be a lot better soon. 

I must apologize now for past, present, and future changes that may occur. I also lack the ability to focus enough to constantly update things. I think it will all really depend on time and worthiness. I’m beyond doing Every task for little to nothing. Actually, in the past, I have invested my own money and sooooo much time.

Please do Not misunderstand.

I greatly appreciate most of everything that I experienced during that era of my life. Not to mention, I signed up for it. I literally just wanted the experience and to help other people. I didn’t realize that so many would also take advantage and not even appreciate the things I’ve done to help.

On the flip side, there were several that were beyond appreciative of my help. They were mindful of my time, thanked me, paid me, promoted me, gave me all sorts of band merchandise (which I still have a lot of), and just  really made me feel like I was making a difference.

Once I got back to extended work hours, I wasn’t able to commit my free time as I did before. That’s when a lot really came to light and could see who was real and who was just expecting everything for nothing.

The silver lining of it all is that I was able to expand on my already diverse knowledge of photography, sales, marketing, and management. I’m grateful for all experiences, good and bad.

Fast forward to now.

I never closed my site because I am proud of all my work as LadySkullshine. I just kept it up for anyone to continue to view. Now I want to use it to help on other ways. All LS items have been placed in my archive section for the time being. I honestly don’t know what all the new content will be, but my thoughts at the moment are to provide any info I can, make some money, and also share some of my kid’s skills.

Thanks for visiting and please stop back to check on updates. I greatly appreciate it! 😀

Some changes are on the horizon …

I’m completely reworking my site. Not sure how everyone will feel about it, but I’m thinking a few things.  With respect to all those who follow me, (I’m not sure how many of those I actually have) I don’t feel that I’m benefiting as many as I’d like to.  So then I wonder what’s the point.  So a new format is needed.  Since I don’t have very much spare time to work with, I will make it simple but with more interaction.   Currently, anything I post on my LadySkullshine Entertainment page on facebook will automatically upload to my site.   I’m looking for ways to expand & network further in a seamless manner.

I also think that this is my own site that I do by myself & can do whatever I want.  That being said, you will see more of what I want to be on my site.  Not, what I think will please everyone else.  So you may see more happy sparkley things & less adult rated items.  I hope this doesn’t annoy too many, but hey it is what it is right?  Everyone just needs to realize that I do this for fun & to help others voluntarily in my very limited spare time since I’m quite busy with my career & family, etc.  There are a few exceptions when I do some paid projects or trade offs, etc.

I hope to start changing some things today & to get working on some family pics on my day off.

 

Have a super great day!  🙂

051014 some updates…

Hello sunshines!  It’s been a while.

Just when I was starting to really get involved in things again, everything went crazy busy with life, family, work, etc.  Plus my laptop died as well.  I’m just now attempting to work through a few more things, but plan to get somewhat back on track very soon.

There will be a few changes.  I’m not able to do quite as much as I used to.  I have a habit of wanting to help everyone & getting deeply involved in multiple projects, getting behind, losing money, neglecting family & the list goes on.  What I am able to do, I will spend more quality time on.  I complain all the time about never having enough time to do anything.  I also would like to do more of what I’m interested in.  I sometimes agree to help out but really don’t have much of an interest.  No offense to anyone, but I just need to learn how to say no, practice better time management & focus on my priorities. Not to mention, I have a wedding to plan for in the near future.  I hope I continue to have my awesome fans during this transitional time.

Thanks so much 🙂

I had planned to work as shot girl at Jabber Jaws for this Biz R Ent metal show, plans changes unexpectedly so I found myself at a show with no camera attached to me which is a bit strange.   So, I made my rounds catching up w/ a lot of old friends I haven’t really spoken to in about a year & enjoyed some great metal music. especially the always awesome Black Fate.  They were missing Corey, but Mike’s son Jake did a great job filling in.  As much as I’ve seen them live & felt the amazing energy they always have, I never truly experienced it as I did this time.  Not having a camera allowed me to really focus on them as a band overall & what each member brings.  Then to top off an already great time, they did their cover of “See You In Hell” by Grim Reaper.  As always, the crowd went nuts & I was right in front of it all singing into the microphone with Skip at the top of my lungs.  What an awesome night it turned out to be.  I’ll see you all in hell my friends   \m/
