Frivolous Friday 5/2/14 (Bead Storage, Glowing Bracelet and a New Creation)

So, what now?  I have had such a busy week, what could I top it off with??  Well….
I recently was turned on the this new bead storage from The Bead Storage Solutions™.  At first I was a little bit timid of trying this, first because of the work it would take to put all my Delica Seed Beads in these containers, but then also because I wasn’t sure it would work for me.  Not only do I have a LOT of Delica Seed Beads, but I also have them in varying quantities.  Here is how I stored my seed beads (all brands and size) before I tried this system….
But, I tried them out!  And here is the result…
This is about 90% of my 11o Delica’s.  Yes, they are all labeled and ready to use!!  Right now they are in numerical order, but I plan on changing them to color and then numerical order once I get them ALL in there!!  Once I started… I couldn’t stop!!  I didn’t use the labels that came with them because they covered the ends and I couldn’t see the colors of the beads, but a ‘sharpie’ marker solved that!!  Thank you to Fire Mountain Gems for selling these great boxes!!! 
Now, the rest of my seed beads……maybe another 4-5 trays…..but I have a birthday coming up shortly…..*hint* *hint* *hint*!!!  
What do you think?  How do you store your beads?  Anything creative….feel free to post a photo in the comments….I’d love to see! 
So now, there is a matching bracelet to the glowing earrings I put out there the other day….what do you think of this one?? It was another REVEAL item from the recent party!!
So I have put aside the 8th BSBP project.  Due to some health issues with our Hostess the Reveal has been move to next Saturday instead of tomorrow….but never fear, I’ve already started a new project!! This is going to be a beadwoven bracelet!!  So, come over on my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post ‘working photos’ throughout the day! (there is more to this one that you might think)!!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;

    That is some impressive storage! I love it! I have some plastic storage totes w/ the divided sections but they are filled with baggies of beads. I really don’t have a good storage system at all. Too many items, so little room.

      Don’t I know it…. I have sooooo many beads, but for me it is all about organization…the quicker I can find beads the faster I can bead!! 🙂 ~KM
