Pinterest is the new mecca for us creative types. Love decorating? There are boards for that. Love books? You can showcase your favorites. Need style/fashion/life inspiration? You’ll find it all. Spending time on this site brings us back to the days of making collages and dream boards, and we’re not ashamed to say we’re obsessed. Whether you’re already pinning to win or haven’t taken the plunge yet, these 50 parents (see the full list here) will wow and entertain you with their boards — we know this because we follow them (and think you should too). When choosing our favorite 50 parents on Pinterest, we focused on the overall quality of their page, not solely on how many followers or boards they have. Are their boards engaging? Helpful? Unique? Like any major list, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down, so please, if we forgot someone you love please nominate him or her here. Happy Pinning! — Amy Levin-Epstein & Dara Pettinelli

The What’s What: This Pinterest pro is a photographer, so her pins are mostly of beautiful things she sees around the web and on other boards, like “Portrait Ideas” (one of them is to take a shot with your parents’ wedding photo on your own special day) and “House,” with home features that look like they’re ripped from the pages of fairytales. But we especially love the personality she inflects with wildcards like “Geeky Nerdy Cool,” which features pins like Star Wars cupcake templates.
The Mama: Aimee is a Denver-based mom of one (a soon to be 10-year-old son), but dons many other hats — web designer, photographer, and yes, parenting and lifestyle blogger at the hilariously named Greeble Monkey. She’s also an entrepreneur — she owns Giese Media, a company specializing in graphic design, web development, social media, and photography.
