Ha! That resolution didn't last long, did it. I've been busy!
I had some lovely feedback from a customer recently, which I thought I might share.
"It’s hard, in the early stages of the process to come to terms with the significant cost of a pair of N. Templeman shoes…but having received them and worn them a bit, the cost doesn’t seem so outrageous. Which is itself outrageous. But they really are qualitatively better than any shoes I’ve ever worn."
It was a pleasure making them, I'm so glad that they worked out!

Happy New Year!
I thought I might make a fashionably late entrance to 2016, this ought to do it. I was sort of sad to see 2015 go as it was an absolutely huge year for me, both personally and professionally - although it was the tail of end 2014 where I made the leap into the abyss, 2015 is where it all began to take off. Since then I've met some wonderful people, made great new friends and been so fortunate to recieve the assistance and encouragement from some of the most generous people I could have imagined and I'm extremely grateful to everyone for being so welcoming. I'm not one to dwell for too long however, particularly when 2016 looks like it'll be even more exciting with plenty to be keeping me as busy as I can cope with - more travel to look forward to, collaborations, a rapidly filling sketchbook, a new workshop.. I just hope I'll be able to fit it all in.
Thank you all out there for your support an interest for the past year, and I'll be doing my very best to keep you entertained for another 12 months. Here's to 2016.
