Guest On Spotlight: Fia Uiterwijk of Sketches4All (S4A or S4All)

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing a Papercrafter on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 6th Guest on Spotlight is my former Lady Boss,  the Administrator at Sketches4All, none other than our well-loved Fia Uiterwijk.

I've worked with Fia as her Design Team Member at Sketches4All.  This was my early years starting as a Designer (DT) for a craft and art site for an international crafting community.  Sketches4All (S4A) has Netherlands and USA as the main community of crafters with a sprinkle of a few Asians like me.

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.

I also worked with the other Design Team members on brainstorming monthly events and sometimes looking for sponsors for these main forum events.

Below are the prepared questions and her corresponding answers to each:
