My name's Deb, how lovely to meet you! I'm so glad you stopped by...
In November 2008 I made my first sock monkey (yep, that's him alright)....and as they say...the rest is history...
In February 2009, Sock It To Me! was born and my life used to consist of Teza by day (Good afternoon, you're speaking to Chaos Control & Crayon Girl, how may i help?) and monkey business by night.
It was very exciting but I left my home and reality for a crazy journey of enlightenment around Asia. So, here I am soaking up the sights and sounds of sunny Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and working for CLEO, the coolest mag ever. Thanks again for stopping by, sit back, relax and Happy Reading!
xoxo Miss Deb

Birthday Parcel from Sweden!
So my best friend Gareth decided to do a semester in Sweden this year...he set off on his trip a little bit after Christmas. Last I heard he bought a bicycle that had tyres suitable for riding in the snow. How crazy would you have to be to ride around on a bicycle in snowy terrain - Gareth crazy that's what! Photos of him devouring the box of Dunkin' Donuts would've been more proof of his insanity but I didn't want to scare the children hehehe...I'm KIDDING!
Anyhoo, this arrived in the post yesterday. Perfect right down to the packaging - I heart old school brown envelopes like this one! I got some Swedish chocolates that had melted because our postbox is in the sun but not to worry, they have been labeled 'eat and die' to deter hungry flatties and are returning to their solid form in the fridge as i type this. He also got me some gorgeous knee high socks from Iceland and my fave thing - Gareth made a CD, like i mean made as in recorded one. He played music and sang...i kid you not, this CD is jam-packed with the loveliest guitar sounds and for as long as I've known this boy, I really didn't realize he could sing like that! I'm honoured to have my own copy...wish he'd autographed it though, I'm sure it would've made me some good money when he got famous!
Grr, I hope you're having fun over in Upssala G, NZ isn't the same without ya! Take care!

Yes...the term is to be taken literally...take one funky pair of socks, add a dash of "Sock It To Me!" magic by Miss Deb and Voila! Sock monkey awesome-ness! Sock monkeys have been around for centuries...nanas use to make them out of old pairs of socks for their grandkids. Revival with a twist is here. Every single one of these bad boys is unique and one of a kind. Miss Deb's does custom orders too so if you had something specific in mind or stumbled upon some seriously cool socks that you think are worth 'monkey-fiying', you know where to go!
