Letter Reply from Santa Claus in Slovenia

Hi, everyone!

I'm glad to be sharing a 5th reply
from the Santa Claus in Slovenia:

Unfortunately, there's no English translation included in the letter, nor did they send a Santa Claus cover in containing the Letter reply from Slovenia.

But I thank Posta Slovenije in Maribor, 
for the cute gifts from their country:

A Coloring Booklet to feed the Kreative Kolorista in me;
a bookmark to feed the bookworm in me; &;
a cute notepad for my notes and messages in
performing my tasks, may it be in the arts and crafts
or in postcrossing.

Thanks much!!

I spearheaded in managing and creating Sketches4All's Facebook side to complement the Sketches4All main community website.  This was for the majority of the active community member and the others who are more active in Facebook.   I arrange notifications and calendars of activities, challenges and events at Sketches4All's Facebook Group/Community to alert them as to when they should sign-in at the main Sketches4All website and forum.

My work with Sketches4all covered producing Design Team projects for monthly events at the Website's forum.  Aside from this,  I hold monthly challenges (themed, sketch or game) providing prizes coming from my own country, the Philippines.
