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: Gluten-free gals will love Shannan’s “Gluten Free Goodness” board, which features such typically off-limits delights like pie and cookies. And her “Crafty Stuff for My Little People” has us pinning like crazy. Jetpack costumes and bath crayons have now replaced “cook wholesome dinner” on our ASAP to-do lists. Another board worth checking out (especially if you’re a House Hunters fan) is “Interesting Real Estate” — it brings a whole new meaning to state of the art.
The Mama: Shannan blogs at Riemerville about working in real estate, being a gluten-free foodie and, of course, being a super mama to two darling little boys.
