Today on the CHOOZE blog we’re sharing an interview with a mom who’s passion is to live CREATIVELY! Need some inspiration for your creative corner, or inspiration closet in your house? Check out what Tiffany Shlain, creative mom of two, keeps in her art closet and how she keeps it organized! Read one of the interview Q&A’s below:
Interviewer: What does it mean to be creative? Is it important that your children grow up to be creative adults?
Tiffany: My husband’s an artist so we kind of think that everything you do is a work of art. Like the way you plan your week, the way you make your meals, the design in the house, the way you live your life. Everything you do can be creative. It’s a way of looking at the world.

Summer camp is meant to be a place of fun, and self-enjoyment for kids. The Painted Turtle staff, volunteers, Board of Directors, and supporters work year-round to give all children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses a chance at this exciting and fun summer camp experience.
Located in California, The Painted Turtle is a member of Paul Newman’s SeriousFun Camps where all campers (and their families!) attend for free. The camp hosts children with life-threatening diseases from ages 6-17 years old and can accommodate special treatment for more than 30 medical conditions. Since 2004, The Painted Turtle has empowered thousands of campers to make new friends, try new things, and experience new opportunities in a space where they also receive care.
There are a few ways you can help support The Painted Turtle. One of the fun, more creative ways is to participate in one of these sewing projects. We love the Turtle Pillow Project, even kids can help in this project by helping cut out the turtle patterns from fun fabrics! Any color, or pattern they choose! Get creative!
The turtle you create will be stuffed, and handed out to campers at The Painted Turtle during camp sessions! Campers take the turtle home as keepsakes from camp. To learn more about The Painted Turtle, and how you can help visit www.thepaintedturtle.org.
This week CHOOZE to Give Back is highlighting the Fine Art Chamber Players! This amazing non-profit organization is one that is so important to local families and children here in Dallas, and the surrounding North Texas areas.
To enrich and enhance the quality of life for North Texas area residents, especially families and children, through FREE concerts of classical music and educational activities.
We feel like the FACP’s mission parallels ours here at CHOOZE, as they too believe that with exposure to music or any aspect of the arts, every child’s life can be enriched, and ultimately life changing.
For more information on how you can support this organization, and help give back to those in need visit www.fineartschamberplayers.org!
