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

The what’s what: Launched in September 2005, Oh Joy! is one of the most popular lifestyle blogs going, covering inspiration and design with a focus on fashion, food and decor. Recipes, ideas for entertaining, kids fashion, insights into life as a new parent and essentials for moms on the go also make regular appearances. Folks looking for ways to swap some cash in their wallet for a design find or figure out what to wear on a road trip (or, well, anywhere) will leave happy. Oh Joy has all that and more.
The mama: Based in LA, Joy is a freelance designer, blogger and author in addition to being mom to a baby girl. Her work has been licensed for wallpaper, kids clothing and stationery. If that doesn’t sound accomplished enough, she’s also the author of two books, Creative Inc., which she co-wrote with Meg Mateo Ilasco, and 2012′s Blog Inc.
