Cindy Loyd is a happy woman. She has a business that is fun and involves her whole family.
And it was profitable from the start.
Her business is just party after party – children’s parties, to be exact. The Zion woman is owner of Picture This Party Inc. and a franchisee of Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop, which teaches children how to stuff their favorite animals at parties.
‘I’m having fun. It involves the children and my husband, Michael,’ Loyd said. She and her husband, who works for a builder in Lincolnshire, have 6 children – 3 boys and 3 girls, including twins, 2Â½.
Best of all, she said it beats working long hours for someone else. Cindy was a property manager in Park City before embarking on the new venture early this year.
‘I don’t have to leave the house unless I’ve a party, and then I can take the twins with me,’ she said.
As owner of Picture This Party, she hosts birthday parties and other happy occasions for children. The parties usually have a theme, such as a dragon, a mermaid, Batman or a pirate, for which she furnishes costumes, balloons and cakes. She also snaps pictures at parties. Read more.
