My name is Erika, and I’ve always had a flair for the creative: I’m a classically trained violinist and pianist, I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in visual journalism, I love to cook, and I’m always excited to learn new hobbies and crafts.
My husband Tom is an amazing photographer here in Orlando, Florida, and we regularly spend our time volunteering to help shelter animals with Pawsitive Shelter Photography. We have four mischievous cats named Ernie, Marty, Daphne and Ella and two stubborn-yet-loveable dachshunds named Logan and Lexie!
I started Gourmet Fuzzies after creating a number of needle felted mice that family and friends fell in love with! The name reflects my passion for food and cooking, as well. I hope you’ll enjoy meeting my little characters and that they’ll find a place in your home and heart!
