15 Pinterest Pinners I Think You Should Follow
I was at the bookstore the other day and saw Ben Silbermann on the cover of Fast Company. He was covered in a heap of push pins. All I could think was Yeouch!
So today, I thought I’d put together a list of a few of my favorite pinners on pinterest. This list isn’t exhaustive because I’m certain I’m leaving off people I adore, but I had to start somewhere, right? Some of the pinners on my list have a couple hundred followers, some over a million. Regardless of how many followers they have, I always find myself looking forward to their finds.
Here they are in no particular order:
Contemporary Kid is new-to-me discovery and I love every single pin. I don’t know much about Contemporary Kid except they are based in Poland and their about section on facebook reads: There are many ways to look at contemporary art with children. If you have any interest in Kids + Contemporary Art + Science + Ecology + New Technologies, you’ll want to check out their boards.
You can always count on Uncle Beefy to find the best recipes, party ideas, photography and interesting fodder around. If there was an I heart Uncle Beefy teeshirt, I’d totally wear it.
Carla, Small + Friendly
Not only is Carla, from Small + Friendly, a contributor to the Kid Blogger Network pin board which has more than 13 thousand crafts and play ideas for you and the kids, she also has great gardening, sewing and gift pins as well.
Joslyn Taylor is the founder of the popular and deeply-loved-by-many blog, Simple Lovely. She’s also the style editor for D Magazine. People, her picks are good—like awesomely, gorgeously, seriously good. They’re downright swoon-worthy.
When Rachel Faucett pins, people listen. In fact, whenever Rachel does something, people listen. She’s has a tremendous eye and industry leaders in the kids world look to see what she does next. Now that’s someone I want to follow!
Celina Bailey has over 1.3 million followers on pinterest. That’s right 1.3 million. And it’s no wonder why—she has the best boards. But you don’t have to take it from me; Pinterest themselves has suggested newbies follow Celina. That’s how awesome she is! And if I can get personal here for a moment, she’s one of my favorite people in the blogging world.
Cal and Eddie, two Irish mums with two toddlers are a perennial favorite of mine. They have an excellent play & learn board filled with ideas. My other favorites—their fun food board and kids’ rooms. Completely charming!
A toymaker and woman after my own heart, Mari has developed a following. And it’s no wonder why—she has a beautiful way of blending kid stuff and style. Plus, she has an entire board filled of allergy-friendly food treats for those who have gluten and dairy allergies in the family.
Stacy of KSW
Stacy of Kid Stuff World is a connector of ideas, people and all things family. So it’s no wonder her boards are filled with fantastic ideas. With boards like, If I were a photographer and 20 Must follow moms she’s an endless resource for when you need a little inspiration.
I’m always impressed by Australian story telling guru Cath Connell’s finds. She has boards filled with ideas for journaling and inspirational quotes. And let me tell you, I’m a total sucker for inspirational quotes. Tease if you must, but I love them.
As the founder of Design for Mankind and Design for MiniKind, Erin brings her crazy talented editorial eye to pinterest. Every find is like flipping through a beautiful magazine. Yeah, she’s pretty much a rock star. But my favorite board of hers? The Dream Big one. I look at it often. Check it out.
Love Cup of Jo? Now you can get it in pinterest form. How flippin’ awesome is that? Joanna Goddard brings the same sensibility that we’ve all come to love from New York’s Girl Next Door to her pinterest boards. You’ll love them.
I know nothing about JaNae Jorgensen except that I love her style. And honestly, do I really need anything more? I daydream of transforming her Splendid Satorial board into my real life closet. That technology is coming right?
Jen is one of the most charming people on the internet (and in real life too!). In fact, if you don’t know her, you should head over The Brothers Trimm and make an introduction now. She has such a sense of humor and warmth about her and it comes through in everything she does, including her pinning. They’re cheery, fun and sometimes just a bit cheeky, which of course, I totally love.
We Want Wow
The blog We Want Wow, out of Amsterdam, is my go-to source for things that are euro and cool. Although, I suppose you could argue those terms are synonymous. They don’t have many pins, under 500, but what they lack in quantity, they more than make up for in quality.
Who would make your list?
