I too have found myself only looking to Adafruit for project needs.
I made some color changing night lights for my three daughters from a Teensy 2.0, piranha rgb, three pots, a push button, plus misc. parts (to control various functions in different modes, e.g. delay time, pwm for red, green, blue channels and overall brightness). Everything came from Adafruit including mint tin enclosure except for a plastic diffuser from a GE G35 string set. Even after a few years, all three night lights are on every night. One even has a 3d printed R2D2 diffuser.
Thank you to everyone at Adafruit for awesome customer service, great products and well-crafted, easy-to-follow tutorials.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
