JAK is me- Jodi Ann Krikke. Sprat? Well, that just came along with it thanks to the nursery rhyme. (Google “Jack Sprat” if you don’t know what I’m referring to. ?)
JAK Sprat all started when my mom had the idea to make a magnet board for my cousin’s wedding. We upcycled a frame, put some magnets on Scrabble letters, and spelled out their last name. Tah-dah! A wedding gift! “You should sell these” my mom said. “Ok.” I said.
That was 6 years, lots of hot glue, and two kids ago. And to be honest, none of us- my mom, myself, or my husband- ever dreamed it would ever turn into something more than a couple craft shows here and there until that fad died. But here we are. JAK Sprat has evolved into much more than magnet boards and magnets, although they’re still just as popular as they were six years ago. Today we’ve switched the focus to earrings (which I am super passionate about and have a true love for) and sprinkle in other pretties for home and fashion.
