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.

Operating as usual

We are so excited to be partnering with my childrens’ school to raise money for the PTA.

The request was *glittery* options, so I designed some fun shirts that accomplished just that.

A portion of all sales of these shirts will be given back to the Lucketts Elementary School PTA.

P.S. I am hoping to start loading more items in this new online sales platform very soon. Baby steps to getting an online shop...YAY!


Happy holidays, y’all!

Do you have an “Among Us” fanatic in your life? If so, I’ve got the perfect stocking stuffer to share with y’all! They’ve been a HUGE hit with my kids and friends so far. Lots of characters and color combos to choose from! You can even add a fun quote to one side!

Great quality masks in both youth size (includes a nose wire) and adult size!

Whatcha think?!


Hello my friends!!!

I have definitely been quiet on my page! EEK! I have been working on some referral projects as time permits, but I have been missing doing some CRAFTING. So, last weekend, I woke up and insisted on CRAFTING! Whatcha think of this fun creation?

Hope you all are staying safe and healthy! 💚


Can you guess who these guys are? I love the personalization that we added to them!


Did you know that BugBuddy dabbles in digital design work, too?! Here are some coordinating signs and photo prop work that I recently completed for a blushing bride’s bridal shower. I cannot wait to do more work for her upcoming wedding.

Digital image work is definitely not limited to wedding/bridal shower designs. I have done many birthday invites as well as milestone posters to be displayed at parties.

Feel free to reach out if there’s something I can help you with. I love working on “all the things” for y’all!


Last week, a customer “challenged” me to test out photo transfers on wood. After playing around with techniques, I think I got it down! What do you think?


Is your 100th day quickly approaching?!

If so...I have 3 “HE” and 3 “SHE” of this design available. I can do youth XS-L with this style of shirt for $16 each.

If you’d like a different design, don’t hesitate to reach out!


Sports season is upon us! Our son is trying out wrestling...and loving it...so, of course, I had to make us some family swag!

I may be quiet on the FB page, but I’m always taking orders. Feel free to message or email me if you ever need anything. 😄

P.S. 100 days of school is coming up on Feb 12 for Loudoun county. 😉


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!

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
