Birthday Giveaway – Winner!

So, today just happens to be this Ribbon Lady's birthday. 

And, on a side, I just learned I share my Birthday with Google!   Which is pretty darn cool….cause my life has definitely changed for the better since meeting my very favorite search engine!  And it gives me an even better reason to have a giveaway, or two, or three! 

There are few things I would enjoy more on my birthday than to give away a whole bunch of May Arts Ribbon!   So, here's the deal:


I am giving away 3 sets of prizes today – at 2 spools each, your choice! 


All you have to do to enter is post a comment here &/or on our Facebook Page telling us about the best birthday present you have ever gotten. 

As I just mentioned, I will select 3 winners to win a prize of 2 spools each —–Your Choice!


Oh, and that's not all!  There will be some fun games going on on our Facebook Page too!  So, if you haven't liked us yet, now is most definitely the time! 

I will select the winners tomorrow morning!

Good Luck & Happy Day To All!!!!


-The Ribbon Lady


We have some winners!!!   Congratulations to:

"Happy birthday! Birthdays are such special days! This last birthday I received a painting from my six year old of a cup of Starbucks coffee. It had "steam" coming out of the cup too! She knows me so well!"

"First of all, a Very Happy Birthday to you!!
I will spare you and not sing!! Probably my best Birthday present ever was when my Mother planned a surprise 18th birthday party, including a charm bracelet with the number 18 on it, when I was actually only turning 17. She put so much thought into the whole party, and the look on her face when I told her I was only 17, I will never forget! 🙂 It was sooo special!"

    Happy LATE Birthday!! =)
    Mine was the 26th!! =)
    I would have to say that hands down my FAVORITE BIRTHDAY PRESENT WAS MY SON BECKETT!! =)
    He was due on my birthday and I went into labor on the 25th. He ended up missing my birthday by a few hours, but I was actually HAPPY that he would have his OWN SPECIAL day and it REALLY was the BEST way to start my Birthday!! =)

  2. Kelly Sas

    When my hubby and I were dating over 33 years ago he gave me a very special music boxon my birthday that I have to this day.

  3. Rebecca Ednie

    I’ve never actually gotten a b-day present. My family doesn’t celebrate them. But I got an awesome gift one time. My mom gave me a note directing me to a camping stove. The stove held a note leading me to camp dishes and so on. I got a total of 5 camping items. It was awesome!

  4. Carol Ann Ater

    The best Happy Birthday ever to YOU!! Hope this is wonderful for a whole year of Happy’s.

  5. Renee VanEpps

  9. Tini

    **** Happy Happy Birthday ****

    My best birthday gift was a selfmade teddybear in the color blue…ohhhh.. i love him!

  10. Theresa in Kitimat

    Happy belated Birthday.
    My best prezzie ever was last year when my kids secretly went through all my old photos and had some of the meaningful ones enlarged. They framed them all and even hung them for me. I now have two walls of wonderful family photos. I have always wanted to do this but just never got around to it.

  11. terriavidreader

    Happy Birthday! And my best birthday present was learning that my mammogram was clean this time – no more breast cancer! Who could ask for more?!

  12. Annette A.

    Happy Happy birthday… Thanks for sharing with us all..

  13. Vicki Wilson

    Happy Birthday! May all your wishes come true. My favorite birthday present was on my 40th when my husband had balloons delivered to me.

  14. Karen Wedding

    Happy Birthday! I won’t ask how old, but I’m sure you look waaaay younger than you are. My best gift would have to be a scrapbooking shopping spree from my DH. Anything scrapbooking is great to me. Enjoy your day!

  15. Lucy

    Happy Birthday Ribbon Lady! I have to say the best gift was last year for my birthday. I got a new engagement ring. This is a gift that keeps giving because it is covering many future birthdays 🙂

  16. debbie

    Happy Birthday!! My favorite birthday present was the birth of my oldest daughter. She was *born* 3 days earlier so on that particular b’day all I did was hold & look at her. Best.Birthday.Ever! 😉


    happy birthday, your ribboness! my best/worst birthday was getting a baby brother. it wasn’t my idea of a good 14th birthday, but i am glad to share it with him now. btw…i didn’t get this email until 5.28 (edt) am on 9/28, so since you didn’t draw yet, i hope i can get in on the fun!

  18. Pam

    This just came in my inbox, so Happy Belated Birthday! The present was when my 3 boys bought me a computer.

  19. Eniko

    A girlfriend took me to the beach with a giant bag of Barbies & Barbie clothes to play with! Definitely took the sting out of turning another year “older”!

  20. Ashley N Newell

    Happy birthday!

    My best birthday present was a trip to CHA. 😀

  21. Kelley

    Happy Birthday, Ribbon Lady! This year was the best birthday gift. He came 6 days early, but I got a new grandbaby! Nothing beats new a baby. The worst? My DH bought me a boar (male pig) to breed to his females. Isn’t that what every woman wants? Then he registered it in his name. What!? Hope you had a great day.

  22. Cynthia B.

    The best birthday present I ever got was for my 40th birthday. My husband surprised with a weekend getaway just for the two of us. I was totally surprised, and that’s not easy to do!

  23. Rufus

    Happy Birthday! The best Birthday present I ever got was my husband…we were married on my Birthday! He’s never forgotten that date!

  24. Janet Sisk

    My dear hubby threw me a big surprise 40th birthday party a few years ago (I’m NOT telling how many years ago it was – LOL). He did it without me knowing it either. He made a big Power Point show with pictures of me through the years. It was SO special to know that he took the time to do this for me. He’s the BEST! Happy Birthday to you, too! Thanks for the chance to win. 😀

  25. Kelly massman

    Happy Birthday! Last year my hubby got me a Cricut! That was probably the best monetary gift… thanks

  26. JenMarie

    Happy Happy Birthday! Hmmm….I love to get gift card to craft stores! 🙂

  27. Helen

    This is an easy one. On my 25 th birthday, I gave birth to my #3 child, a girl :)…which was already a super day…my anniversary! But a new baby was the best!

  28. indy

    Happy Birthday to you!! My favorite birthday present was signing on my house five years ago tomorrow! My second–my upcoming hot tub! Not sure why all our big purchases come around my b-day, but I’m not complaining!

  29. Sue D

    Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday was a surprise 50th birthday put on by my church stamping group.

  30. Marcia D.

    Happy Birthday! My favorite present was my camera!

  31. Kristie Maynard

    Happy Birthday Ribbon Lady! Hope it’s the best birthday ever.
    My favorite birthday gift was the week in Disney that I went on with my 2 sisters in law. We were all turning 50 the same year, so we went to Disney together and had a ball. So much better than a party.

  32. Betty Anne Orr

    Because my birthday is in late November I often get special Christmas decorations for my gift. I had searched and searched for a specific Jim Shore Santa I wanted for my collection and had given up finding it anywhere. When my birthday rolled around I was thrilled to receive it as my gift. That was one of my most favorite gifts to receive.

  33. Tanya P

    Happy birthday! My favorite gift is my Kitchen Aid mixer a few years ago, I love it!

  34. Julie Shearer

    Happy Birthday to you. The best present I ever got was the awesome watch I wanted for my b-day last year. Only because my hubbby convinced me we could not afford it at the time, then he suprised me with it . I was really suprised.

  35. Granny Sandy

    Happy Birthday to you, me and Google! Four years ago exactly my brother sent me air tickets for me to fly to Perth, Western Australia to stay with him and his family for 12 days. This came at quite a cost to him but he just wanted to bless me with some time away to refresh me. I have had some amazing gifts over the years but this one really blew me away and I shall never forget his kindness and thoughtfulness.

  36. sharon gullikson

    First, happy birthday!!!! Second, my favorite birthday present was a cell phone charger. It was from my 19 year old son, who doesn’t buy presents for anyone usually. So it meant a lot.

  37. Sandy

    Happy birthday to you, Ribbon Lady!

    My best birthday present was a dogwood tree from my son. I think of him every time I look at it.

  38. jean marmo

    Let’s see — there was a waffle iron one year 🙂 but probably the best was a surprise trip for my 50th back to see some old friends.

  39. Sandy

    Happy birthday! My best one – I’m the birthday person at work, and my team wanted to do something special for me one year (they normally forget!). All morning they ‘forgot’ it was my day, and I was sad not to even get a little wish or anything. No one would go out to lunch with me except a gal from another dept who said she could pick up lunch and eat at her desk…so we at least did that. Meanwhile the entire conference room was transformed into a high school PROM! Everyone dressed in outfits dated to the year they went to their prom (some guys had to wear wigs to go with tuxes! lol!) … they had made a crazy prom dress for me to put over my outfit when I got there, and they elected me queen. It was HYSTERICAL and such a total surprise!

  40. Helen LeBrett

    My best birthday present ever was on my 16th birthday. When I woke up that morning my room was all decorated with streamers and balloons from the ceiling!!! I had slept through my sister decorating it for me, and it was a wonderful feeling and so much fun, because our family never did anything big for our birthdays! I’m 52 now, and I still remember how wonderful it was!!

  41. Marcy H.

    Mine would be for my 29th b-day he surprised me a year early for my 30th. So that way i would not be suspicious. That was many years ago, but how sweet of my DH!!

    Hope your day is filled with many surprises and wonderful things that make you happy!!

  42. Tanya Hulbert

    Happy birthday! Birthdays are such special days! This last birthday I received a painting from my six year old of a cup of Starbucks coffee. It had “steam” coming out of the cup too! She knows me so well!

  43. Tanya Hulbert

    Happy birthday to you! Birthdays are so special! This last birthday I received a painting from my six year old of a cup of Starbucks coffee. She knows me so well!

  44. Lillian

    The best bday gift I ever received was the year my son drove up from Texas to surprise me on my special day. Have a fabulous bday, Ribbon Lady! May your day be filled with surprises, friends, fun and CAKE!

  45. Tammy Valley

    Happy Bday Ribbon Lady! Some years back my hubby made me a delicious homemade oreo cake! Mmm, that was good!

  46. Dorangela Bobet

    The best was when my 3 yr old son gave me a painted cigar box with his picture in it. He was so proud of it when he handed it to me!

  47. Kim H

    Happy Birthday toYou,
    Happy Birthday to You.
    Happy Birthday The Ribbon Lady,
    Happy Birthday to You!

    And many more!

    MIne would be my husband throwing me a surprise party after the first year we were married. It was so thoughtful, and he did it all himself.

  48. Sue McRae

    Happy Birthday! One of my fave gifts was a gold ring passed down from my mother when I turned 16.

  49. Tifany DeGough

    Happy birthday!

    My favorite birthday present is actually an apron from my husband. We had just been married a month before my birthday and he asked me what I wanted and I told him I wanted an apron. He kinda freaked out wondering if I was serious or not…and wondering what people would think of him when I told people he got me an apron for my first present as his wife.
    But…he went to a store and got me an apron…and he also got me a beautiful framed picture to hang on the wall. I still love the apron and the picture 9 years later (although I never wear an apron anymore).
    It is a special memory for me.

  50. anita Kouwenberg

    I hope this sunday… my 50th birtday… a weekend Paris or London

  51. Nicole

    Happy Birthday to you!! For the last several years, instead of getting a traditional birthday cake my grandma has made me her famous German apple cake. It’s soooo yummy, and I look forward to it every year! That would be my favorite gift 🙂

  52. jennifer reynard

    First of all, a Very Happy Birthday to you!!
    I will spare you and not sing!! Probably my best Birthday present ever was when my Mother planned a surprise 18th birthday party, including a charm bracelet with the number 18 on it, when I was actually only turning 17. She put so much thought into the whole party, and the look on her face when I told her I was only 17, I will never forget! 🙂 It was sooo special!

  53. Carla Rae

  57. Kathy P

    My best birthday gift was a simple one: this year, my 5 yo DGD made her own card for me, complete with laborious journaling and a drawn photo of her and I. I will treasure it forever!

  58. jenifer Cowles
