Skyhugs: The New Company I Just Launched on Etsy

Well, I’m back people! It’s been nine months since I’ve been on this thing and, man, has a lot transpired. We barely won the election, COVID, homeschooling, social distancing, no toilet paper…the list goes on and on. It seems all doom and gloom but guess what?! I think it’s the perfect time to come out with a positive company that was created to bring us all back together and unite as one.

After countless prayers, asking God what he wanted me to do with Skyhugs, he set me up with an artist and we finally cranked out our first character, Grace the Grateful Rainbow. She’s there to remind you of all of the good things that you’ve got going in your life. Here’s my short list:

1. Healthy family
2. Two amazingly sweet dogs who follow me all around the house
3. A finished Skyhugs character
4. Solid girlfriends – Kat, Grace Lee, Jay, Grace sis – I’m looking at you!
5. Chilly weather in CA
6. The Queen’s Gambit – was soooo good!
7. Biking with the boys
8. Benjamin Hardy’s free 30 day course – was transformational and informative
9. That I found a way back into this blog. I thought I had locked myself out, I used so many different types of usernames and passwords.
10. That I’m still alive and breathing

So the big news is that I finally got around to launching my new Etsy shop for Skyhugs. We only have 22 products listed, so far, but I plan on growing that number to 200 by year’s end. My goal is to gain some traction on Etsy and then create a separate Shopify site for Skyhugs so she has her own nice, warm home.

Instead of reading it here, you can check out this Instagram post where I describe what Skyhugs means to me. Can it really be the next Hello Kitty? More than anything, I want to spread love in this world. After the election, we saw just how divided our country really is. Biden should have blown Trump out of the water, instead it took us 5 days to get the news that Biden had won. (Thank you, Pennsylvania.) From election night, Tuesday, till Saturday, I was glued to CNN and MSNBC, watching anxiously but optimistically that we would pull out a win.

Can we just take a moment to acknowledge the fact that we will soon have a female 1/2 Black, 1/2 Asian VP?! Kamala Harris is a force to be reckoned with! I love watching her speak, she has such poise, confidence and grace. I’m so happy that young girls everywhere can see that glass ceilings can be shattered.

Signing off for now. I’ll try to be back more often. In the meantime, if you get a moment, check out Skyhugs on Etsy. Thanks!
