September 2010 Hot Button Winners

Congrats to our
September 2010 Hot Button of the Month Winner!

September's Hot Button of the Month Contest Winner is…Lurae Benzio from Daisy Dots Creations in Industry, PA. Lurae's "I'll Create It" button showcases exactly what buttons are meant to do - get people's attention! Lurae recently started her own business making jewelry, décor, favors, programs, buttons and other personalized items.

"I wear my button when I go out to run errands, shop or attend my children's sporting events," said Lurae. "When someone asks me about it, I hand them my business card and explain my services. This is the way that I get the attention of potential customers. Plus, the button saves me money because I am not randomly handing out business cards to people who may not be interested. And it helps to start a conversation about what I love to do best….CREATE!"

As the Hot Button of the Month winner, Lurae received a $100 Badge-A-Minit gift certificate.

Think Pink
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Heidi Coleman Burton from Primrose Land Design in Tipp City, Ohio is ready for it. Her "Think Pink" button was designed for her sister who is a breast cancer survivor. Heidi hands out her buttons to promote awareness of the disease and to remember those afflicted or who have lost the battle with the disease. "My wish is that when someone sees somebody wearing this button, they understand the importance of ending this disease. It is my tiny part in the war against breast cancer," Heidi said.
Bassmaster Classic
John Mitchell of World of Wonder in Bossier City, Louisiana, made this button to alert people to one of the largest bass fishing competitions in the country. Hundreds of people from all over the United States attended the event.
Chases Blues Away
This button made us smile - and we think it will make you smile, too! Roberta Sprouse from Personal Wrappers in Great Mills, Maryland, made this button to cheer up a friend who was going through some rough times. When the friend wore it, others asked about it - and Roberta ended up selling them!
Shane James from the Tri County Technology Center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, submitted the Center's Robotics Team button that was used in this year's robotics competition with teams from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Texas. Teams bring buttons to trade with others. "Robo-Bison" was one of the most prized buttons traded at the event.
This button, submitted by Wilson Browning of Amanda, OH, shows exactly how to make a statement! Whether you agree with it or not, the button boldly gets its message across!
