First I was just getting out the paint and stencils to decorate my spaghetti holder.
I used a dry erase marker to write the word “eat“, and then painted over it. It looked so cute.
This is where trouble sets in, and an addiction begins.
{ “Oh that R in our living room could use some color”}

“And the spaghetti holder needs just a bit more– what’s this a wine bottle?

Let’s spruce it up too!”}

And last but not least- the knives:

I had to carefully, and slowly remove the stencil from my hand-
and force myself to get back to the cleaning and laundry I’d originally planned to do.

…If Mason will allow it.
