About Me

Sonja Gapinski
My name is Sonja Gapinski and this is my life. I have always loved to create. Since becoming a mom, of two awesome kids, I’ve totally embraced my domestic, crafty self. We do a lot of painting, coloring, sewing, cooking, singing, playing in the dirt and creating.

I believe kids should have the freedom to get messy with their creations. Messes are a wonderful thing.

In addition to teaching my kids about art, I’m also teaching them to be good stewards to our Earth. We garden, recycle, compost, reuse, and re-purpose all that we can. Through this blog, I hope to inspire others to live healthy, sustainable and loving lives.

I also design and create Swirlbots — environmental superheroes from a distant planet.

My husband Thomas and I also own Motionbuzz, a Jacksonville web design and marketing business. He started it back in 2000, and I began working with him a few years later after our first child was born. It’s fun and always changing. Working with him is amazing, it works for us. It’s all about maintaining the balance between life, love, family, family and work.

Needless to say, I stay pretty busy. But at the end of the day, the most important thing to me is my family, for without them I’m just plain old Sonja P.
