Creating & Conversation- A New Video Series Blog

Check out the latest Creating & Conversation Series preview video.

The time has come for the start of a new video series entitled, “Creating & Conversation.” Check out the preview video of this new video series below.

I have been wanting to compose a Do-It-Yourself show full of accessory creations and conversation for a while, however, personal distractions put it on hold. So I am asserting myself in this new season to new results and expectations. Check out Episode 1 below as I create a pretty-in-pink infinity scarf and chat of this new season.  Eventually guests will join the show but until then there will be great conversation with ME.  As I give you a window into my world I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

 

Stay tuned for upcoming episodes and subscribe to our Youtube page @WhatsSheCreating.

Until next time….. create your style.

She’s Back!

Finally back in action! I created Simplicity 8084-the Mimi G style shirt dress that cinches at the waist. I love the printed fabric that she used but I decided to go with a solid polyester woven mustard yellow fabric. I found this fabric on sale at a local fabric store. I feel the majority of the fabrics that I buy have to be on sale, otherwise I feel like I’m not working hard enough. By the way, yellow is one of my favorite colors.

This pattern was easy, however, the lapped buttonhole placket could have been confusing if I had not completed it before. I used size 14 pattern style A. I’m starting to prefer a lot of long dresses these days ….. getting away from the mid-length dresses that I loved in the past. I found these cool suede heels and I’m looking forward to the future.

I wanted to end this post by writing a bit of encouragement. You may not know this but it is increasingly challenging for me to finish and display blog posts due to the elements of my life. However, everyone has a choice daily in how to spend the time given. Use your time wisely and try not to get distracted. I find that I am able to complete more when I get off the social media sites and hone in to my purpose in life. I hope this inspires you to go for your dreams.

I am currently working on a few shirts that I’ll be displaying soon so stay tuned. Until next time …. stay focused and create your style!

Creatively yours,

Neci Harmon

 

The Neci LoveHarmon Accessory Line Is Finally Here!

Spring is here with all of the pollen and rain and rain and pollen. Spring is also a time of new beginnings, which means it’s time to take resources and experience to the next level. This accessory collection was to be released over six months ago, however, after having a child, adapting to a new life, household and martial obligations as well as working a full time job it stalled. After all the blood, sweat and tears the Neci LoveHarmon collection is here. This is actually the 5th collection of my custom, eclectic handbags and totes. People always ask what inspires a line of bags. To tell the truth, I have a general idea of the colors I desire then I travel to various shops for fabric and whatever organically speaks to my eye is what I use. The palate includes stone grey, light grey, white , brown, mustard yellow, orange and Ankara prints.

There are four separate looks, the envelope clutch, the oversized clutch bag, the large pouch and the crossbody large tote.  We used a variety of different textures including faux leather, upholstery woven fabric, woven leather, cotton prints and Ankara prints. Check out the entire collection here.

I hope that you are inspired by this collection. Through this process I cracked my IPad screen, which was upsetting to say the least, but I am very happy with the finished product. Want to view the entire collection? Check out the Etsy shop here.

 

Until next time …. create your style!

New Blues!

 

Hello all,

We’re back! After four months of change we are ready for the upcoming year with many new goals and creative projects. Expect more videos, more online writing and more connecting with other fabulous crafty individuals.

This week we feature the cutest baby ever … Baby Jett. He has been the main reason for the four month change. He is wearing his first DIY bob and bootie set. The white, brown and blue elephant printed cotton bib and bootie set was easy to execute. We have made over 12 sets of these items. We found this pattern in an unknown craft book over nine years ago.

Again, isn’t he the cutest model?

Until next time ….create your style!

Bags on DIY Bags!

Hello All,

It’s been a while hasn’t it. This week we paired a set of happy customers of What’s She Creating? Enterprises. The client on the left carries a brown faux leather printed clutch bag with a wooden circle accent and button. This is a great bag to take on day date excursions.

The client with the handheld tote on the right is working her bag. We constructed this item more than five years ago. This handheld tote is made of a black faux leather yoke and a turquoise, pink, black and gold printed cotton fabric. The handles are ribbon wrapped wooden dowels.

Both clients are extremely satisfied with their purchases and we love satisfying our clients. Why not check our online Etsy shop and order your custom bag today? Click here for the site.

Until next time….. create your style!
