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: Lisa has great style and she’s generous enough to share it on Pinterest. Her “My Style” board has something for everyone, from bright maxi skirts for tall girls, to gray and coral cardigans for preppy (or always chilly) ladies. Her “Things I Heart” page has other pinnable picks, like the Carrie Bicycle Basket by Marie-Louise Gustaffson, that are making us reach for our credit cards. Ring it up, please! We also dig her “Photography to Inspire” — why don’t our pictures come out like that?
The Mama: Lisa of Lisa Leonard Designs creates gorgeous handmade, vintage-y jewelry in addition to blogging and raising two boys, ages 8 and 9. Her whimsical style inspires readers to have some fun with fashion and family, too.
