    1. Hello Melani
      That would be wonderful. I am unable to phone anyone currently as I am away on an artist residency in Iceland with a non-working phone. I return May 20th. Please email me all of your questions! I am able to receive messages via email 🙂 nanotopia at me dot com
      Hope you are well!
