Melody Keller, Mohawk, NY, US

Hello fellow Junkers. My name is Melody and I live in Upstate New York. I worked in a Nursing Home as Activity Director but I am retired now. Staying home will give me the time I need to JUNK! I have two Children, a Son and a Daughter. I have one grandson that was adopted from Korea. He turns 6 in April. Of coarse he is the joy of my life. He runs the computer better than grandma! This site is so inspiring and I do see many projects that I am planning to do. I enjoy repurposing items. Havent had much time for that but now that I am home I will be able to work on my projects. All of you fellow junkers should be very proud of your work.....Great job..:)
