How do you store your kandi?

I've been making kandi for about a year and I have a slight organization problem. Right now all of my beads for kandi are hanging out in plastic baggies and a big cardboard box. I really need a different way to store them that makes it a little easier to access than what I currently got going on. I also have a very nosey puppy who has already eaten some beads and I really need to prevent this from happening. I was thinking about getting a tackle box or something along those lines. If anyone has any other suggestions that'd be great!

Here's how I store mine: http://kandipatterns.com/kandi-help/kandifaq/84-what-do-you-keep-your-beads-in If you have as many beads as SycoSquirl, those wouldn't work, lol. But the drawers are bigger than they look.

Honestly, I just put my finished projects in a few drawers in my dresser. As for beads, Im kind of in the same boat as you, however mine are all in ziplocks in a bunch(like 10) of shoeboxes(with lids) under my bed, which is actually convienent for me if I decide to take my beads to a before-rave kandi making session at a friends house.

I have them organized into different boxes on my vanity like one is cuffs another is tradable singles the others are meaningful singles to me and then a box of stud I got from trades. Also instead of my vanity being for my makeup It is my kandi vanity. Drawers to but toys and packing stuff and then I can put all my beads under it. I hate it I my kandi is not organized

Beads: I have a bowl I use for some of the beads but most of the time I leave them in the bag they come in. ^^ Kandi: I have a ziploc bag I use for it (like super sized) but I am running out of room so I will probably have to buy a container to put it in xD

This is my Kandi station :p It helps A LOT at keeping my beads organized.

If you would like having a large amount of beads on hand this is what I use ( I have 6 of them) and then for storing finished projects I have an entire clear plastic storage box ( like one for christmas decorations) that I put them all in

For my beads, I got most of them stored in those bead containers you can find next to the bead aisle in Hobby Lobby. Some are in the bags/containers they originally came in. And I shove ALL of those bead containers in one cardboard box. It's not the best method of storage. I got so many bead boxes that I can't close the cardbord box anymore. XD For my jewelry, if I'm not wearing them, they go in this really neat toolbox. But sadly, I've filled most of it up with my jewelry. And my bigger pieces are in a separate drawer right now. @u@;; And I have this junk drawer I keep putting my bracelets in after wearing them all day. Which isn't good because they can get lost that way. =w= ;; I don't think my ways of organizing my beads/kandi/stuffs is the best at all. -w- But They're always nearby me at least. ^^ What I REALLY want is a craft room because I draw and make cosplays too. That'd be a really awesome place to store kandi supplies in too. I think so anyway~
