In 2013, illustrator Lee John Phillips began a project of one drawing a day, documenting the miscellanea from his late grandfather’s shed. Phillips’ “Shed Project” has enjoyed widespread coverage in the media and around the world.

In his own words:

“My grandfather, Handel Jones, died in 1994. His shed has remained relatively untouched. My grandmother treats it as a mausoleum.

He was a practical man and would spend a great deal of time in that shed fixing, salvaging, and making. Broken items were stripped of their parts and components sorted into relevant containers. Nothing was thrown away.

In 2013 I completed one drawing a day in the same sketchbook for the whole year. I decided that 2014 would see me complete an item a day from the shed in a similar fashion.”

First up, the Journal!

With its wood effect cover and three different paper stocks, the Toolshed Journal is a wonderful memorial and daily journal. Pages are either blank or grid-ruled for illustrations or notes.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
