I may have gone off the crafting deep end...

I got one of my yarn catalogs in the mail yesterday, and I couldn't stop ooh-ing and ah-ing over all the beautiful pictures of the yummy yarn.
Since I had just ordered yarn from this same distributor online, I didn't have any *practical* reason to keep the catalog, but I couldn't bear the thought of throwing away all those gorgeous pics! Soooooo my sleep deprived brain came up with the idea to cut out my favorites, buy dollar store frames, and then use the framed pictures to decorate my craft room once I finish the piano-to-desk transformation :)
Because this all occurred from midnight until 1am, I could only get as far as cutting them out... Damn Dollar General being closed at night! Don't they know there are insomniac crafters fiending for random supplies! Lol

Thanks ;)
I keep picturing my husband's expression when he gets up for work at 4am, goes downstairs, and sees the pile of pretties lol... He's really going to doubt my sanity this time!

I'm wondering if I should put them in a file folder and wait until after the piano refurb is done... Just in case I end up staining it (want to make sure the frames coordinate with the desk color)
Lol

Lol!! He's come home to much crazier, so I guess this time probably won't seem like TOO big a deal ;)

Thanks! I haven't cut anything out of a magazine since I was like twelve, but this should be a fun project ;)
