The happiest of New Years to you all! / by Jonathan Hayes

Dear Nini Friends,

I hope that you have all enjoyed a festive time of late and are easing yourselves into the start of a new year. Something tells me that 2019 is going to be an exciting one for me and filled with change…

I’ve added a few new photographs to the website today, including a few more of my ‘Girl of Spring’ and her lamb. She’s looking for a new home and I just know that she’ll find the perfect fit. I’ve considered offering the pretty country lass and the lamb separately for sale, but really, how could I even think of ever parting them from one another?! They are both currently watching me make a start on my next two dolls, two sisters inspired by a recent trip to the ballet. I’ll be adding some new photographs of their progress very soon.

Over Christmas I’ve created a couple of new sketches - ‘Boy and Lion’ and ‘Follow the Leader’. I’ve featured them in my Nini Doll Sketches gallery page and also added one of the sketches below. I’ll be offering high quality printed versions of some of my sketches in the very near future and will be offering them for sale both via the website, on Facebook and also in my new Etsy shop. I’ll provide more details very soon, including a link to the Etsy ‘NiniDollShop’.

I’d like to wish you all the very best of health and happiness for 2019. This is going to be a busy year!

With my thanks as always for all your interest and support,

Jonny and Nini Dolls xx
