good MOMday Morning 

The June MOMday Morning giveaway is over and  Comments are closed. We will announce the winner by Wednesday! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Good MOMday Morning! 

Welcome to MOMday Morning June!

So, here you are at the party but not sure what we are celebrating? What is MOMday Morning?

The 1st MOMday (Monday) of each month  B.Y.O.G, Eli's Lids & Blessed Nest will be hosting a giveaway.

Last month our friend Kara- Noel hosted the launch of MOMday Morning! It was a wonderful party. If you missed it, don't worry, we celebrate every Month!

Please take a minute to party with us and see what we are all about. Kara-Noel is too cute so go ahead...take a peek!


Now, meet some of our friends at the party!

This is a big party. There are a lot of people to get to know and gifts to share, so you'll be glad you stayed until the end!

As we've said before, we love the blogging community! Throughout the years, Mom bloggers have loved, nurtured and supported us. We love telling you who has impacted us and why you need to get to know them too!

Our MOMblogger in the spotlight:

Meet Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer

Heather and Shannon are friends in real life and I hope to have the honor and joy of meeting her one day too! I've enjoyed Shannon's blog for years.

Shannon has taken a bit of a break from regular blogging, but it's not hard to spend hours laughing and crying through her archives (we've both done it!). Read about all of the plates she has a -spinnin' and go tell her you need to hear more from the "creaky old blogger who may not write nearly as often as she used to." (Her words, not mine) yeh, whatever Shannon. We need all the wisdom and humor we can get from amazing women like you!

 Community in the spotlight:

It's Father's Day month so we had to tell you about one of our favorite dad bloggers! Meet Graham at Tumblon! Heather met Graham through one of her NYC groups, and he has become a great friend to both of us (& to Blessed Nest!).

Tumblon helps parents understand and nurture their children's growth by informing and inspiring them to engage in the joys of parenting. It's such an extraordinary concept, you just have to check it out!


 It's not a party without gifts and party favors, right?

1 person will win this gift package!

Commissioned Art, Nesting Pillow & CASH! (cha ching!)

WOW, meet this amazing dad! Joshua Sierk. He's a musician who draws, paints & makes stuff. And you guessed it, he's Heather's friend...

and he brought the best gift to the party! He is giving YOU a chance to win an original piece of art, commissioned just for MOMday Morning! (you may remember the Mother's Day gift that Heather had Joshua make for me, see it here)

"May your nest be warm and blessed."


Another gift for YOU! Enter to win a  Nesting Pillow by



along with $75.00 CASH


Heathers niece, Gracie has amazing parties. At 6 years old, she is my daughter's inspiration for looking outside of herself during her special celebrations! Every year for her birthday, Gracie chooses a charity and asks friends and family to give a donation that Gracie then gets to give to the cause she loves. We hope you will be inspired by Gracie's spirit of generosity and creativity as you check out this great cause...

MOMday cause~ The Cool People Care Shoppe

"The Cool People Care Shoppe sells merchandise that makes the world a better place. Whether it's the unabashedly positive message that Cool People Care or our latest "We Are Nashville" line that raises funds for flood victims in Middle Tennessee, we aim to clothe you for a Lifestyle of Caring."


Blessed Nest will be giving away another party prize! We will give 1 more winner a "We Are Nashville Tote!" These Bags are 100% organic cotton green fabric that has been generously donated by our favorite fabric designer, Harmony Art Organic Design.

I LOVE the fact that you can record milestones on Tumblon. It's really hard to remember to take out the scrapbook and write down each and every milestone for children...

I really like Les Fleurs. It would look FANTASTIC in my baby girl's Nursery for when she is born!

The favorite dad in my life is a toss up between my hubby and my Dad! Hubby is getting the new IPhone, still can't believe he talked me into that one! My Dad is the most generous man I know and I still haven't found the perfect thing to show my appreciation. He makes me a better person. :)

June 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCheri

Tumblon-I love that you can track milestones! Anything to help keep me organized!

June 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCheri

I checked out Joshua and there is a picture of a tree. The tree of knowledge I really like it! It's so abstract and simple but leaves you thinking about it.

June 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCheri

We're making him a special dinner!

June 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKyla

We live pretty far from my parents and my husbands parents, so I try to celebrate days like Fathers Day by printing and sending photos that I've taken when everyone is together. It's a good way to celebrate family and relationships.

June 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

The Tumblon Site is great! I love that they have great products right beside articles and milestone information by age!

June 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

I love Joshua's "stark" print.

We are taking Dad on the trip he has always dreamed about - Italy!

We're making my husband a great hero kit (he's a professional firefighter) for Father's Day. It's kind of crafty and kind of awesome!

June 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFireMom

I will call my favorite Dad on fathers day since he lives very far away!

We will probably cook dad breakfast before we go to church! I'm not a morning person and hardly ever cook breakfast (if you want a hot breakfast dad has to cook!), so this will be a real treat for dad... AND the kids! =)

On the Tumbleon site I like that they give you suggestions of things to do with your kids (if you're stuck, which happens to me sometimes!), and I also love the product reviews!

June 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Jacobsen Family

On Joshua's site, "The Sky Is Crying" is my favorite!!
