A lot of Norin’s artwork is designed to being used on buttons and for stickers, so it tends to be small and ridiculously cute!

Depending on where you live, it tends to get pretty cold around the New Year. How do these sweeties keep warm?

Maybe with some hot chocolate…

If you don't celebrate the holidays enjoy your break you deserve it! :-)
