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: Do you pore over fashion magazines for the latest makeup and style trends? Save your money. Allison has boards to cover all your needs and wants. From this season’s most stylish clutches (in colors from shocking orange to subdued saddle) to the boldest new nail colors, you’ll want to pin these accent pieces and then start your holiday (or birthday, or any day) wish list early. And don’t miss “Hair” — if you’re unsure about the short look, this will change your mind.
The Mama: Allison blogs at Petit Elefant about four simple staples: fashion, family, travel, and home. Between fun posts (like springtime cocktails or purse contents) there are some more serious subjects covered, like a recent travel post cataloguing her family’s trip to Warsaw, Poland to learn about their heritage. When she’s not blogging, this Utah-mom works as a stylist, which explains her chic finds.
