Homemade Christmas Gifts - Coffee Cup Cozies

This year was another "Homemade Christmas".  One of the gifts I made for just about everyone was a Coffee Cup Cozy.  It seems like everyone likes "take-out" coffee, lattes, or frappa-something or other, so I thought they all needed a Coffee Cup Cozy.  I used a Starbucks cardboard sleeve as a template and created a pattern for the cozies.  I used either covered buttons or vintage buttons for the closures, along with a hair elastic.  Before stitching them up I embroidered the recipient's name or monogram.  Here are pics of some of them.

I am having the hardest time trying to get blog entries posted! Pictures sometimes load, then sometimes won't. It hangs up. I can't scroll using the bar on the right. I can't do anything! I spent probably a good hour typing and uploading pictures (painstakingly) and then the blasted thing froze up and somehow didn't save anything! It is very frustrating and I can't figure out what the problem could be. I've upgraded my internet explorer. Anyone have any ideas???
