For me, the start of 2012 isn't about resolutions; I've made tons over the years and usually forget about them before February rolls around. Instead, I like to look at it as a fresh start, a year brimming with bright, shiny possibilities along with the feeling that anything is within my grasp. As such, I thought it appropriate to bring you some bright and shiny DIYs to inspire you for the new year. The last one isn't a full-out tutorial, but I know that you have what it takes to recreate it them — you are papernstitch readers after all! Here's to a year of possibility!
