A warm welcome to the Creative Craft Blog Hop, hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate! If you are coming over from my friends Sonja and Jane at Sustain my Craft Habit, I’m thrilled to have you join us! At the bottom of this post, I’ll be directing you to the next stop on this venture. But don’t forget to check out the other stops too. There’s a fine group of 25 other bloggers with inspiring Spring ideas: be sure to drop back in throughout the week to visit them all!
Introducing Shaughnessy Turtle
Turtles have one of the best natural defence systems in the animal world: they can pull their bodies into their shells to protect themselves from predators. But this turtle can protect you too – from prying eyes!
One of the smartest things you can do to protect your privacy – and that of your children – is to cover the webcam on your laptop and desktop computer. Although it won’t prevent your computer from being hacked, it will prevent a sinister hacker from watching and photographing anything the camera can see. That’s why I made this web cam cozy. Sure you can be like Mark Zuckerberg and stick a piece of tape over the camera, but wouldn’t your kids get a kick out of Shaughnessy Turtle instead?
Shaughnessy is designed to peek over the edge, covering up the camera when your kids are at the computer to keep them safe and secure.
Shaughnessy Turtle is practical, but he’s cute too in his own way!
His neck is just long enough to allow his head cover a webcam, but not obstruct the screen.
When the kids want to FaceTime their grandparents (or do their online schooling these days), move him away from the webcam or lift him right off!
As practical as he is for the kids, you might find yourself using Shaughnessy too.
That will only leave him much less time to contemplate his navel 😉!
The free pattern for Shaughnessy is available in our craft room, Birdz on the Fly. For VIP access, all you have to do is subscribe (see details below the pinnable image at the bottom of this post).
I hope you’ll enjoy making Shaughnessy! Now I’d like to send you on to a special and talented friend, Terrie at Decorate and More with Tip. She has an awesome faux tobacco basket project for you. I had to do a double take when I saw it; you’ll find out what she used when you get there 😉!
