BugBuddy Creations

Customized and personalized apparel, vinyl gifts, decals, wooden signs and more.

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Melissa. In the past couple of years, I have transitioned from the corporate world to stay at home mommy of 2, and now I'm still home with our little toddlers but I am also doing something that I love and creating fun things for myself and others. It is definitely a juggling act between business and taking care of our little ones full time. But, I love the challenge and satisfaction of seeing smiling faces with the items that I create. Now on to the business info. :) Welcome to BugBuddy Creations. Customization and personalization is what I'm all about. I love vinyl decals of all sorts and on EVERYTHING (within reason). If you are like me, things with that personal touch or to see my kids' names on everything in sight just make me happy. So, if you're in the market for custom signs or vinyl designs, please feel free to message me or email me at [email protected]. I'd love to work with you to see what kind of goodies we can come up with. **NOTE: Website is currently under construction.**

Hello friends! Boy have I been quiet on my page! Thought I’d drop in to say HI and share some recent orders that I’ve worked on!

Hope you all are enjoying the gorgeous fall weather!

As always, feel free to message me or email me anytime if you’ve got something you’d like me to work on for you! ❤️

Just to give you all a little glimpse into the craziness I put myself through prepping for a family of 22 headed to Disney for 4 park days...because I insisted we all need shirts for each day. That’s vinyl that I designed, cut, and “weeded” (removed excess) for 88 shirts! I’d say that’s a record for me in a short period of time. I can’t wait to share the final product with y’all!

Hope you’re all enjoying your summer!

I’m SO EXCITED to FINALLY be going to the most magical place on Earth with 21 other family members! Yep...22 of us!!

With that being said, BugBuddy will not be taking any new orders until after July 1st. If you have an open order, I will be wrapping those up this week.

I hope you all are starting off your summer on a high note!! ~ love, Melissa

Amongst all the craziness of end of school year festivities, I managed to whip out some fun shirts for the last day! #readyforvacation

I just love making baby shower gifts!

Here are a few recent ones that I’ve done...including one beautiful model showing off BugBuddy work just for him (gifts from me for him and his amazing mommy...permission given by mom to share here).

If you’ve got a baby shower coming up, reach out! I’d love to help you with that perfect gift!

How many teachers do you know that NEED this shirt?! 🦈📓✏️

I gifted these fun shirts to some of my favorite teachers today as part of their final teacher appreciation week gift from my kiddos. I was so happy to hear that they liked them.

Now to get the creative wheel turning for end of school year gifts. 😬

If you’ve got some teachers that you’d like to have me make something special for, message or email me! I’d love to help!!

Happy Friday eve, y’all!

I have been a busy little bee working through orders AND working my other part-time job as a pre-school toddler teacher.

I wanted to jump on to show a one-of-kind gift that I created for a sweet customer’s grandma. It took some effort, but the fact that I was able to pull this off from just a photo of a signed holiday card and an image of the couple just makes my heart so happy!

I can’t tell you all enough how much I appreciate you and your confidence in my ability to help create some unique and special gifts for your loved ones. Thank you!!! 🌸

Teacher appreciation week AND Mother’s Day are right around the corner. Here are some custom requests that I recently finished just in time to celebrate teachers and moms/grandmas.

It’s definitely full blown baseball and softball season for us! How ‘bout you??

I had to make sure to do something special for each kids’ teams. Fun bows for all of the girls on my daughter’s softball team. And, this season, I’m determined to get our 6-8 yr old baseball boys organized in the dugout with these personalized tubs that they’ll get to keep at the end of the season!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Today was the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. I had a friend reach out asking if I could make their family shirts with this specific saying on it. I put a fun spin to it, and this was the final product.

Apparently, it was a BIG HIT amongst the other attendees of the event. Lots of people asking to take pictures with them. Now, I’d call that a success! I love what I do!!!

(Please keep any political beliefs out of this post...I’m sharing as I thought it was awesome that folks enjoyed my design. 💙)

I mean...how absolutely adorable is this?!

I’m certain there are lots of little babes back home in San Antonio that would look oh so cute sporting this during fiesta right now!!

Wanted to jump on to share one of my new favorite designs! Perfect housewarming gift or gift to yourself for your home!

This particular design is painted on stained solid pine wood(approx 10”x24”) - $35.

Youth spring football amongst other team sports are about to kick off! This dude and his dad are totally ready to show off team spirit and keep warm with our whacky VA spring weather.

I, on the other hand, am not! 😝We’ve got both kids in baseball and softball with crazy schedules. ‘Tis the season! 🏈⚾️🥎⚽️

This little dude of mine was so excited to see the final product of the spirit day shirt that he help momma design!

If you’re looking for spirit day gear for your kid to wear to school, I’d love to help! This specific design can be modified with your school colors and mascot! Best part...single color design is only $12 for a standard SOFT youth t-shirt!

Today is our final day of celebrating National Reading Week. It was so fun putting together some shirts to help complete many kids’ “costumes”...including my own little guy! Our favorite book series to read together is Elephant and Piggie, so his costume was PERFECT for him.

Can you guess what book the “cool cat” shirt is for? 😜

Today is Dr Seuss red & white day at school! But, instead of just red and white, my little munchkins wanted to pick out their own designs and colors. As Dr. Seuss would say...Why fit in when you were born to stand out!

I had so much fun this week getting so many shirts done for National Reading week. Thank you for your continued support of my little business! ❤️

Nothing says last minute momma more than clicking on your heat press before 7am on a Friday to make a spirit day shirt for your princess! 🤦🏼‍♀️💙 I even threw together this design in record time! #shesluckyimcrafty #luckettslions #bugbuddycreations

I was determined to make my kids holiday shirts this year for pics with Santa! I made it happen! Whatcha think?! I just love this buffalo plaid!

I cannot believe I haven’t been sharing some of my custom apparel orders with y’all! Here’s several that I’ve recently worked on! (My phone is too full of picture! 🤪)

I’m always here for your custom needs! ❤️

Here you go!

I *thought* I had some tree skirts, but I can't seem to find them. Boo!

I included some random other things that I had that I thought would be good stocking stuffers! I also have quite a few can koozies that can be customized to your liking if you'd like to see those, too.

NOTE: Fonts are only SAMPLES...I can adjust to your needs. :)

[11/28/18]   I have a few ready to PERSONALIZE/Ship Santa sacks (and burlap stockings & tree skirts). Any interest in seeing what I’ve got?!

Good things come to those who are patient!

Our almost 8 yr old had to wait on her Grinch themed birthday shirt because momma was so busy with orders. We may not have had it for her party this past weekend, but I am making sure we have it ready for the big day tomorrow!

Whatcha think?! Perfect holiday shirt for those FLOSSING crazed kids. 💚❤️

I LOVE this simple and classy sign (this specific one was used as a birth announcement ❤️).

Here are a couple that I just finished up for a friend today.

Hello, friends! Yes...I have been quiet on the page this summer. We have been super busy with family visitors, but I've managed to fulfill lots of special request orders, too. :)

I am going to be closing down shop FOR NEW ORDERS through the end of August as I am having knee surgery on Wednesday and need a little time to recover.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me a message.

Hope you all are have a wonderful summer! xo

Jurassic fans?!

I know one little guy that is gonna be super excited when he sees this shirt that his momma ordered for his birthday!

I love it when my clients let me roll with designing. Her request was merely creating a wood sign with these song lyrics on it. I went a step further asking her to share some photos of her husband and son to see if I could grab a silhouette to incorporate in the design.

And...BAM! I pulled it off. One of a kind! 💙💙

Hope he enjoyed his Father’s Day gift from her.

I’m not sure why I didn’t start this sooner, but boy do I love etching some glasses!

Perfect gift for that special guy (or gal) in your life!

Hubby saw me finish these up the other day, and guess what I have to make him now?! 😜

Oh my, y’all! I have been POUNDING out orders (hence, the quietness on my page).

Thank you all so much for your support!

Just wanted to pop in to say HI and share one of my new faves! Love this combo!

In all of the craziness of orders...especially end of school year and Father’s Day...I had to take a little time to get this special gift done for my daughter’s softball coach. I love how it turned out. I sure hope he did, too! What a great first season of softball. I foresee making many more of these in the future! 💛⚾️💛

OK, y'all! Here are some of the new ones that are in stock and up for grabs/ordering.

We are going to test out the new ordering system for placing your order on these. I currently have 35 sleeves posted.
