HOW WE GOT STARTED
Hey, my name is Kris Eliuk and I am from the great state of Canada.
I am the owner and operator of Yellowday Energy. It is small company that consists of my 3 dogs, Bubba, Rascal, Mikey, and myself. They don't really do much, but they are good motivation!
I believe I am a pretty well rounded individual, and I accredit that to my 2 fathers.
Being a child of divorce can hinder some peoples lives, but for me it was just the opposite. My biological father, Dale, taught me mechanics and how to cook. We even rebuilt a little 80CC motor bike when I was 10, and then a 1986 grande prix with leprosy as my first car. I think you appreciate something more when you have spent more time, rather than money on the project.
My father, Murray, who is not with us today, taught me sports and music. My main sport was hockey as all my brothers played it; and me being the shortest and skinniest, it would only make sense that I would be a defense man, right? Lol. Murray also gave me a love for music. I can play 5 instruments, but the best would be the drums. All 4 of my parents owned their own companies, so I was taught at a young age that customer service is number 1. I will make sure you are happy with anything you purchase from me. I might be a 1 man show, but I do my best to answer every question you may have.
How i got into EDC world
It actually started oddly enough with a car accident. Nearly 2 years ago, in 2016, I was in a pretty bad car accident. I could barely walk, and spent the next year doing physical therapy and chiro. About 6 months into my therapy, I was at home and my best friend Chris was in town for work. He brought me this little metal spinner. I did the classic, “I don't get it“, remark that most of us have made. But, after hours of playing with it, I found that this was something I needed in my life.
I spent a ton of time learning about fidget spinners and other edc items; acquiring them and enjoying the groups that revolved around them. I decided a few months later to make my own, and the Helix was born.
I woke up at 2 am one morning and drew it out, had it clear as day. Then after about 6 months later, I had a working prototype. Chris and I went on a western north American tour from Grande Prairie Alberta to LA and back. The trip was a little over 11,000 km in 3 weeks. We met some amazing people, and had a blast seeing other makers products and hanging out with fans.
What we make!
Currently we have a pre order going on for the OMNI, my newest design. Its a solid body bar and tri spinner that will be on pre order from July 2nd to the 15th. The helix is my first design and it is a discontinued model, we still have a few but once they are gone, they are gone forever. I really enjoy the Helix; we decided to make them limited so they become more of a collectors item.
I also make beads, rings, tops, bottle openers and anything I really feel like. These are all for sale on MONDAYS at 6:00PM mountain time on my Facebook group. Either on a first come first serve basis, or a sign up sale, for anything I make for Mondays.
I do a lot of custom work for other groups as well. We have apparel as well. All the art is done by myself, and then I have a friend vector it for me. I might have my hands in too many cookie jars, but I just enjoy doing what I do, and I hope you will as well.
Come check us out!
We have a small Facebook group. I do my best to keep everyone updated as much as I can, and for everyone to share! We also have Instagram, all under the same name. So come check us out, we would love to hear from you.
I would not be where I am today, without the support of my friends and family, and mostly my customers. You all make this possible, so that I can go into my shop every day and dream up new things that I enjoy making.
Please if you have any questions e-mail me or send me a message on facebook.
My name is Kris Eliuk, and I thank you for your support.
