Meet The Maker
Hi! I'm Erin, the mama and maker behind Bugabaloo, Inc.! I'm a single mom of two amazing little bugs. We live just northeast of Baltimore, in Bel Air, Maryland, with our rescue dog and three guinea pigs. I was a middle school environmental science and engineering teacher for 11 years before switching careers to marketing and graphic design so that I could spend more time at home with my little bugs.
I love being a huge science and nature nerd and I've always enjoyed being creative and making things with my hands. For me, making is a wonderful way to disconnect and de-stress while also creating something new that could make someone else's day just a little bit brighter. Having Bugabaloo as a "side-gig" to my day job has been amazing and has given my little family many new opportunities for fun and togetherness.
It really is all about the little things that make you happy. I enjoy using bright, cheerful colors and prints in each of my creations and I love to challenge myself with each new piece. What truly makes me happiest of all is seeing the joy my work can bring to others. You can't buy happiness, but you can buy handmade, and that's pretty much the same thing, right?

**Potential Pet Allergy Warning**
Many of our items are made in a pet-friendly environment. We have a wonderful rescued shorthaired pointer who moonlights as an office dog, security officer, and package inspector. While great care is taken to ensure that pet fur and dander does not come in direct contact with our supplies or final products, indirect exposure of our items in our pet-friendly environment could still be cause for concern for those with extreme allergies.
