In the world of blogging, moms have got it going on -- and in the world of design, moms rule the roost. Each year, Babble celebrates the women curating the most creative and innovative finds in style, décor, and craft. They're designers, crafters, hostesses, and stylists who juggle it all with after school play dates, dirty laundry, family meals, and bedtime.
This year's list boasts perennial favorites and also showcases new moms who are taking the scene by storm, one perfectly coordinated outfit – and room -- at a time. If you're on the hunt for the latest and greatest ideas, tips, or tutorials, these are them.
Have a design mom blogger that you adore? Nominate her here, and maybe she'll make an appearance on next year's list! — Cyd Converse
