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: With boards like “Food Photography” and “Yum,” it’s clear that Katie is an extreme foodie. One of our favorite boards, however, is her “Inner Child” which features the more whimsical side of food with pins like fruit rainbows, sandwich art, and lasagna cupcakes. You certainly don’t have to be a kid to want any of these! We also like her “Why I Wish I Could Sew” board because, well, it makes us feel better about not being able to make any of the beautiful creations pinned there.
The Mama: Like many moms, Katie sometimes cooks great recipes and wants to remember how the heck she made them — that’s why she founded the blog, Good Life Eats. At GLE, the mom of two shares easy, delicious recipes that can be made even with two little ones fighting underfoot.
