Thank you so much for featuring two of my recent projects
(Light-up pendant and Animator Gadget). I’m finally catching up on my
Adafruit viewing and was totally blown away to see both featured.
It means a lot to see my heroes mention these simple projects – with a
straight face even. And I really think the mentions have helped some of our other maker club members come out of their shell too. Thanks for creating a site and community where we all feel comfortable while being challenged to grow.
Wednesdays are now “Small Engine Repair 101” instead of Adafruit Night for me. But I’m already thinking of ways to incorporate Adafruit components and a weedeater motor into a project. Yeah I know, I’m scared too.
Thanks again to everyone at Adafruit. You make the world a better place.
