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: There are so many amazing boards to catch your eye on Michelle’s Pinterest page, from the everything beautiful and green “The Grass Is Always Greener” to the music fanatic’s “I’m With the Band” featuring concert posters, album cover art, and clips, there’s literally something for every taste. It’s no surprise she has such a plethora of followers. You’ll find home décor, crafts, food, babies — it’s a one-stop shop of inspiration. Of course if we had to pick a favorite, it just might be “Well Poured.” A bacon Bloody Mary? Strawberry rhubarb lemonade? We’ll have one of each … at the same time, thank you.
The Mama: Professional photographer Michelle blogs at Rust and Sunshine about photography, crafting, and her entrance into the world of mommyhood. When this Minneapolis-based mom of one is not taking photos, pinning, or caring for her new boy, she spends time creating outside, in her garden.
