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: We cannot disagree with Liz’s self-assessment: “Collector of all things beautiful.” She has 120 pins on her appropriately named “To Make” board, and we’ve already picked a few, like this cardboard box guitar, that are on our own dream-project list. And we haven’t seen boards as clever as her “Geometrics” and “Stripes” featuring products that make specific patterns something to be coveted.
The Mama: San Franciscan mom of four-year-old Henry founded her blog Say Yes to Hoboken when she was living in, yes, Hoboken, New Jersey, as a newlywed and the name just stuck. Her mix of crafts, photography, and fashion oozes coolness; we always want to see what she does next. You can also catch her latest finds on Babble’s Family Style.
