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!
Gah...I thought this photo would express my current state: - I'm sitting here on my lappie, freaking out a little, rushing a little, pretty darn nervous...Despite all that emotion, I'm still sitting there clicking away at the keys instead of packing :)...I've neglected my blog for a while so hence the cobwebs..Then I'm all dressed up and excited too.Hahaha...well it sorta made sense in my head! The photo was taken last Halloween (see the fake gash on my neck?)...and NO my eyelashes aren't normally that thick unfortnately!
So yeah...4 days to go...I'm going to start packing tonight... Guess who's getting ridden away this evening? My beautiful Vino! Yes, I managed to get it sold and he's going to his new home tonight! Sniff sniff...I gave him a good clean so he's shiny-ly waiting for his new owner.
Hello lovelies... So I used the random number generator...drum roll please...
Three cheers for you Number 1 commenter! Goes to prove that the early bird gets the worm! Alas...because I didn't actually feel selecting a number from 1-3 was truly random, I've decided to divide the loot up so all 3 people can enjoy them! So lovely ladies, send me an email letting me know whats your poison (fabric, sewing patterns, paper craft etc), address details and I'll hook you up!!
Oh and I've still got a tummy ache from laughing too hard at this.. Trust me...it's very short but very good..
Hello lovelies! It's all happening...But first things first...I have to apologise for not updating for so long. It's been mayhem.
I moved out of my flat last Saturday and into my sister's...and I have been pawning off my stuff like there's no tomorrow! Everytime I think I've finally boiled everything down to the basics I attempt to fit it into my pack and realize I still have a lot of work to do. So if you thought I had some cool stuff up for grabs at the garage sale (thank you to everybody who came along by the way), the stuff I've got on Trademe at the moment is even better - if the link doesn't work, try searching for my seller name debzdomain. These are items I'd really like to take with me or store but I simply can't. I have to keep telling myself that I'm unsure as to when I'll be back so whatever it is I keep I might've outgrown or lost interest in by the time I get back. So REALLY the wise choice is to give someone else a chance to enjoy it.
Now one last thing before I end this post...I have a little giveaway in mind. I have been putting aside a bunch of crafty items. I have a box of fabric and a box of bits and pieces such as patterns, threads, stationery etc. I didn't want to sell any of it so guess what? If you comment on this post, I will draw a random number on Friday and its yours! Yay!
Take care everybody and I'll speak to you again soon...

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!
