Today we're introducing you to Laurin, owner of Jokey Yokey. Laurin is offering one lucky reader one dozen Jokey Yokey Confetti Eggs, just in time for Easter.
Hi Laurin! Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
I live in Patterson Park along with my 3 year old daughter and husband of 6 years. My professional background is in both psychology and marketing.
What inspired you to open Jokey Yokey?
Throughout my childhood, and even more importantly as an adult, my family has taught me the idea that happiness is a choice. It is something that you have to create, not something you are given. You simply need to decide to laugh, to be silly, not to take yourself too seriously and celebrate - the big and little moments.
In my efforts to spread this notion of simple happiness, I offer to you Jokey Yokeys. Inspired by the Latin American tradition of the Cascarone - a confetti filled eggshell cracked over ones head to bring good luck and cheer - and my family's ability to discover life's simple pleasures, Jokey Yokeys were created to remind you that life is fun.
What's coming up next for you and Jokey Yokey?
A whole lot! We offer a limited edition themed egg each month, called “Monthly Merriment”. The April edition (available in March) will be focused on Easter and the celebration of Spring. A perfect basket stuffer that won’t leave the kids in sugar shock. Jokey Yokey will also be offering children’s birthday party entertainment/activities. We’ll set up a mock production line and birthday guests will be able to create their very own Jokey Yokies.
To enter for a chance to win the Jokey Yokey Confetti Eggs, please leave a comment on this post! We will be announcing winners on Sunday, April 17th, so check back to see if you've won!
And the winner is...
I loved making confetti eggs with my mom and sister. Thanks for reminding me how much fun they can be...
