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: Her boards might have familiar subjects, but they have a decidedly worldly spin. Take “Baby,” for example. Instead of cartoon-like rubber duckies, Joanna has pinned a mod version that look like they came from a MoMA gallery. That’s not to say Joanna’s so chic she doesn’t have a sense of humor. Have you ever seen a toddler color a dog? It’s hilarious. (Just as long as it’s not our toddler. Or our dog.)
The Mama: Joanna blogs about fashion, design, and photography at A Cup of Jo, but her day job is blogging for Conde Nast Traveler. When she’s not writing or riding, she’s parenting her son Toby. Her family of three resides in the Big Apple.
