The Art of Peeking..

I use to peak ..at presents. I was in the 4Th grade. I peaked at everything. And let me tell you once you are a peeker you are always referred to as the peeker. I am still accused of the crime that I did some thirty years ago. What's up with that?

But I do love foil paper..it does not tear and you can put the tape right back to where it is suppose to be. I also love those cellophane bags, or any kind of bags for that matter. Nobody will ever know you were looking..I have more tips..but I don`t peak..i swear.oh yeah, i don't swear, but if i did i would..

Hi Julie,
Take a peak over at noodle and lou. Jenn has decorated her cute home for Christmas and one photo features one of your vases. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

I never peaked but my brother always did and would tell all of us what we got. So I guess in a way I did "peak".

I was the peaker in my house. I have stopped doing this, but I am still told a million times during Christmas not to peak in the presents.

Hey Jules! Glad to hear from you. Busy here too! I remember one year my brother and sister peeked and man did my parents make it rough on all of us! They never did that again. I wrap everything as soon as I buy it and remind my kids that if I even think someone peeked the gifts are gone. So far so good, I think! :) Have great day dear!

I am such a peeker too. I don't like surprises at all!!! My husband tells a funny story how when he was little, he peeked at all the wrapped presents in the attic...was SUPER excited at what he saw...and Christmas morning got none of it. His Mom was hiding it for a friend's son! He was crushed for life and has never peeked again;)

Merry Christmas Julie!! Love your turquoise bowl vase! I hope Santa brings me some spending money:):):)

I was a peeker and used to know every single gift I was going to get...and I told my sister what she was getting too! I was rotten...

Happy Holidays to you and your family Julie!

My Husband leaves my gifts in bags where I can't help but see them.

Oh man.. I peeked at my presnets ONE time when I was little.. and learned never to do it again. i was so disappointed that I wasn't getting anything else that I didn't see already.

I don't have any candy canes.. but I'm going to get some today or tomorrow and put themin my little Julie pot.. they will be perfect.. I know exactly where I'll put them!
