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: We basically want everything on Rena’s “I Want It” board, from the digital Polaroid to the darling paella pan — not sure if it’s super necessary but it’s yellow and who knows, maybe it will make us make paella more? Or at least try to make it once? And while daydreaming of a quiet place for ourselves, we can get lost on her “Library Research” page, featuring different ideas for book storage and ways to create serenity in the home.
The Mama: Rena is a consultant for creative businesses and is a design curator at her blog Singular Possessive. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and baby boy, and she enjoys reading library books and drinking root beer in her spare time.
