We’re jumping in on the Friday Favorites round up that we saw trending on Twitter and Pinterest today to bring you some of our favorites that we loved this week from a few of our Creating with the Stars blog stars.

Let’s kick it off with this awesome Selfie printable from Jen over on Tatertots and Jello

selfieIf you follow us on Instagram, @eastcoastcreative and @jess_ec2blog, then you know how much we love a good Selfie; at the hair salon, with our kids, out in the snow shopping at IKEA! Jen put this DIY idea together for a Tween/Teen hangout for her three older kids…ahh soon we’ll need a room like this too, how crazy is that! Check out what she did if you are in need of a space for your kids and to get your own Selfie printable to go with all your fun Instagram shots!

You know you’re cool when West Elm regrams your adorable bird planters….


Could these get any cuter! We are so excited to have Michael from Inspired by Charm as one of our blog stars. If you love succulents as much as we do (hello we put them in a concrete cinder block bar!), check out his post Houseplant Love.  Apparently there’s a Pinterest board called Urban Jungle Bloggers where all the cool city people hang out and pin inspiration for awesome house plant decor ideas like Michael’s!

HAHA, is this not fabulous…


Our girl Mandi over at Vintage Revivals was just blogging about how she was always a bridesmaid in the Apartment Therapy Homie Awards for Best Home Project DIY Blog for the last three years! So, she put together a fun little photo shoot with some really bad bridesmaid dresses, and this year she finally became a BRIDE and WON! Congrats girl, we knew you could do it!

From a bride to a bookshelf…


I love the makeover KariAnne from Thistlewood Farm gave to her bookshelf just by changing out a few pieces and dressing up an ugly plate holder with scrapbook paper! You just never know where you’re going to find inspiration from to change the look of everything, which is why we love sharing ideas from our favorite bloggers with you. How fabulous are those bins she found at a yard sale!

You know we love Planked Walls, well how about planked flooring…


This DIY was featured on Kate’s blog Centsational Girl, but is actually a guest feature from reader Courtney in New Zealand! I love the transformation, stop by to see the before and after photos and tutorial on this gorgeous plywood plank flooring.

Those are just a few of our Friday favorites from our CWTS blog stars this week, to check out all of our amazing Creating with the Stars bloggers and details on when the contest starts stop by our announcement post from last weekend.

Happy Friday!
