I think the reason I like making these--well, it's the same reason I like making M15M and Lost recap icons: I get a kick out of matching the words to the image as closely as possible. It's kind of surreal, in an MST3K kind of way. You get to see what I'm imagining, sort of.
I'm using my cleolinda.com bandwidth now--I have two websites, yeah, but they don't have a lot of horsepower (normally, I don't even use what I've got), so be kind. Save to your own hard drive or server if you want; that'll help. I'm also putting a new category in the m15m memories for anything fun that isn't an icon--Extras, if you want to know how to go back and find all of these. And, again, should you want to link to one of these, link to the entry--the image URL will probably change.
