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: Are you tired of too cutesy or just plain boring kids’ clothes? Take a look at Rachelle’s “Kid’s Fashion” board. Examples of her fresh pins include a tuxedo bathing suit and a gorgeous crown of flowers — perfect for a wedding, or just because it’s almost summer. Then meander over to “Children’s Rooms,” for calm white spaces with pops of color. Love it, pinning all of it.
The Mama: Rachelle blogs at Babble’s Family Style and Kenziepoo about everything related to kids and design, from nurseries to clothing. She also edits La Petite Magazine, a stunning magazine about the same stylish subjects. She lives in Boise, Idaho, with her husband and undoubtedly well-dressed daughter Kenzie.
