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

Something for 'this' weekend maybe?
Have I died and gone to bag heaven? This is adorable.
A beautiful overnight bag with ‘Something for the Weekend’ embroidered on the poppered front pocket. The bag also has two pretty charms: a metal plane and a pvc postage stamp embossed with ‘travel in style’. A handy zipped inner pocket and phone pocket help keep your valuables safe.
Kudos to the lovely Megan from Charade for this fabulous find!
I've got a thing for maps, and old school envelopes and this vintage shape of bag...SO this is perfect!
I will have you...one day soon! Miss Deb
While I'm at it, I think I'll have the entire vintage travel series please! Look at these...found after I'd finished the post...squeal, love the cheeky inscriptions too!!

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!
