Welcome to the first AIPAS newsletter! This one is a little pic heavy because of all the lovely Halloween releases, and we are covering a month instead of just a week or two!
TALES FROM THE MOD TEAM
The Mod Team has had a rather busy month behind the scenes since opening up the Facebook group. We've set up information and guidelines for everybody, implemented and tweaked the system of albums for sharing our images, set up files to keep track of brand and social media information, and tamed the release/sales dates calendar.
If you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can do something differently, please feel free to message one of the mods.
We have set up this blog, and an Instagram account, as an easy way to publish the AIPAS newsletters as well as helping getting the existence of AIPAS out into the world. Our aim? To help our awesome Aussie Indie brands take over the polish world! Muhahaha!
Your Mod team is Cassandra Goodwin, Nicole Wearmouth, Relle Kins and Teneil Masters

BLUE INDIES THEME
We had an impromptu blue indies theme in the group this week and we got to see some awesome blues from our members' stashes. Here is just a small selection of those that were shared.

It was a pleasure to see so many Aussie indies get into the spirit of the Halloween season with some special releases. Some were limited edition, and are nearly (or may have already) sold out. Others are still readily available, but I wouldn't suggest delay if you fall in love with one!
