Seeing as how this is your house, you could put some trim along the ceiling/wall edge. It adds beauty to your house, gives you a perfect edge to cut up to, and adds value to your home. I have done it in every room in my house and it does make a huge difference. I like to bring the ceiling color down on the trim but you could do it the other way around.

That is in the cards eventually. But for now, simply changing to the delicate for "young paint" tape did the trick. In the mean time, I have a whole butt load of spackle to do where it pulled off the new paint to even everything out. Sigh.

I think you are putting the spackle in the wrong places
On the other hand I have seen some cracks that could use some spackle.....

For evening out the shallow depressions you made with the pulled paint, spackle is the wrong material choice. (It doesn't like to be spread thin.) Instead, you need to be using slightly thinned premix joint compound. This should be in the same general part of the store as the spackle.

The spackle may work, but the J/C should be easier to work with, and do a better job.

Do you have any of the wall paint around? A little slop on the wall and then cutting back with the wall color is much easier.
