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: At its best, Pinterest allows people with similar senses of style to share ideas and spur one another to take chances on purchases and projects. And Kristen’s boards do just that, from “Products I Love” (we’re coveting those gorgeous iPhone covers) to “For The Home” (there’s not a pin we don’t want to jump inside), it’s clear at first glance that Kristen has great taste, pure and simple. We’re also suckers for her “Words to Live By” board where you’ll find funny and empowering gems such as this: “Have no fear of perfection; you’ll never reach it.”
The Mama: Kristen lives in Shawnee, Kansas with her husband and four children. In addition to sharing awesome pins, she catalogues her journey as a mother (and photographer, and cook, and entertainer) on her popular blog, Dine and Dish.
