Well, technically it is still Sunday (9:30pm) so how about a Stamping Space Sunday! I haven’t done that in forever. Mostly because you’ve seen my stamping space and overall – it hasn’t changed much! If you haven’t seen it, you can click <here> and find all the Stamping Space posts. But I thought I would share something new I just added. Tiffany gave me one of these the other day – something she found while getting ready for the garage sale. I’ve been looking for some type of shelving or storage so that I could put my Making Memories paints out. I wanted to be able to see all the colors easily and piling them up on a wire shelf in my closet just wasn’t cutting it. I picked up a bunch of these (basically every color I didn’t already own) during the Recollections going-out-of-business sale. So I have quite a few of these little bottles now. This seems to work pretty well!

It’s called an expand-a-shelf. It’s one shelf that is 14″ wide and you can pull a second one out from inside it to expand it to 27″. Anyway, I figured it would work perfect on my second table since I had just cleaned it off and rearranged it anyway (I have the cuttlebug in front of the paint on the table).


I also have a new recipe to share. The boys love fish and salmon and we’ve been trying to incorporate it into the menu once a week since it is so good for you and I’d like it if they grew up liking some healthier foods like that! So we tried a new recipe for Salmon with Mango Salsa. Well…..it was good and all…..but we really liked the Mango Salsa! Cause of course we had to taste test it before we put it on the fish! And well, we just kept eating it! So we added that to the Super Bowl menu and just had it with tortilla chips! Anyway, I thought I would share the recipe with ya.


Mango Salsa

1 mango – peeled and diced (1 cup)

1 sm avocado – peeled and diced (1/2 cup)

1/4 c red onion, diced

2 T fresh cilantro – chopped

1 t salt

1 t lime juice (I also squeezed 1 fresh lime over ours)

1/8 t ground cumin

1/8 t ground red pepper

1 1/2 T papaya lime serrano sauce (by Fischer Weiser) – the recipe calls for 1/4 cup Consorzio Mango fat-free dressing but my store didn’t have that so we used this other stuff instead

Just toss it all in a bowl and stir. Serve with chips, that’s it!

And the winner of the Valentine stamp set is:
