Hello there !  It has been a cold week here in Georgia.  I stocked up lots of food, milks and HOT Chocolate .  Nothing better than sipping a cup of Hot Chocolate in this crazy weather.  On my recent Starbuck visit, I found this Starbuck togo coffee cup for only $ 1.  I haven’t seen anything at Starbuck for a dollar since college, so I grabbed  a few.

The cup is so plain, so I made a cozy/sleeve for it.  Nothing is better than a Santa Clause sleeve…

Not too long after I completed the sleeve, I got an idea of making HIS and HERS coffee cups, then MR. and MRS. SANTA CLAUSE sleeves were born.
