About Penny

I am a mother of two beautiful girls who inspire me and light up my world in the flash of their smiles.
I run award winning Creation Station Arts & Crafts Children's classes, parties and events in and around the South Oxfordshire area and LOVE my job!

I wasn’t really happy working in investment banking, so I looked at what I really enjoyed doing - which was working as a Brownie and Guide leader. I decided to find the right opportunity that would allow me to do more of the things I loved and to achieve a more positive and fulfilling family and work lifestyle

I wasn’t really enjoying working as a Team Manager for an investment bank so I decided to look into the options of running my own franchise, where I could use my skills to run my own business, but where I could benefit from the reassurance of a tried and tested business model. With so many franchise options available I decided to look at what I enjoyed doing and use this as a guide to help identify the type of opportunity that would work best for me.
As a volunteer in Brownies and Guides I’ve always loved running activities and working with children. So this seemed like a good place to start! I explored a number of franchise options that would enable me to maintain my own personal values and fit within my family commitments.

I came across ‘The Creation Station’ online and it immediately jumped right out at me. I couldn’t quite believe that it would really be possible to run a business doing what I love! I could also bring my daughter along to the classes too and have much more time with her. This all added up to reduced childcare costs, more time with my daughter doing something I loved with lots of great support! It just seemed to have my name written all over it!

That was 2 years ago, I’ve since had our second daughter and I took 6 months off. I re-launched my business in July 2012 and Head Office has really supported me.

My life now has all the things I want, believe in and value. I absolutely love running my own award winning Creation Station franchise. I am able to balance my home life with our newest edition and my 5yr old without giving up my rewarding business. By investing in a brand I believe in and investing in myself, I have been able to make a lifestyle choice that ticks all the boxes for my family's future. Our Founder, Sarah Cressall is a pure inspiration as she is committed to building strong working relationships within the network and the whole of the head office team are just as dedicated and passionate about each individual Franchise Owner's business. This has really helped me to maximise potential opportunities, develop personally and to achieve a wonderful balance of work/life.
