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

Last days as an un-employed...
By Wednesday, I will no longer have time to sit around making daisy chains...hahaha!
I'm flying back to KL tonight. I've had the best time at home...haven't felt so carefree in a while. Mum and I have been talking lots and indulged in a pedicure and some shopping yesterday. Even had the chance to see a chiropractor/physiotherapist friend of my parents who treated me and made my fatigue and achy joints go away. We also uncovered the reason why I was tired and sore all over, I had no idea that I actually sleep on my front. When I wake up I'm often on my side or back but according to the boychum and now my mother, I do...that's been putting a strain on my neck! So now that we know, I'm going pillow shopping. Also, I'm no longer allowed to drink cold water or eat too much. I know it sounds like a bit of an old wives tale but I'm willing to give it a shot if it's going to make me feel better! Yay!
Isn't it wonderful when you look around and everything seems to be falling into place and without realizing it, the chaos that had previously engulfed you has slowly lifted, faded and disappeared. I feel like I can breathe again...
Mum's still busily sewing more work outfits for me as I'm typing this but I didn't bring my camera with me, but I will definately post photos up of her work once I get back.
Just thought to drop you a quick one and wish you a very exciting Monday!

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!
