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 fully fleshed-out, design-heavy Pinterest page has so many amazing pins, it’s hard to choose highlights. But if we had to, we’d direct you to focus on the “Interiors: Kids Rooms” board. Seek out the Star Wars shower or the hanging bassinet, and prepare to be majorly inspired (and get your “pin” finger ready). “Vintage for the Home” is another stand out, especially if you’re into the Mad Men scene. Rachel’s pins reflect her keen eye for design and obvious natural talents. We can only try to be as cool as her!
The Mama: This vintage-loving mama (who makes her daughters’ clothes) lives the farm life with her five kids and “menagerie of animals,” which you can read all about on her blog, Handmade Charlotte. You can also catch her work on Babble’s Family Style. Both her blogs feature amazing home finds from across the web and serve to inspire other designers (and mommies) of all skill levels.
