    I am in awe of you folks who’ve found almost all of the eggs. I’ve struggled this year to find eggs. My computer hated the fast option shown to me earlier and almost fried itself crashing 8 times in 15 minutes. So I return to the slow peck method. I was determined to be methodical and [...]

    Good night Laura Z aka Veggie Chick. Thank you for being great motivation for me. I’ve chased you, Y Buonamici and NYBeader all hunt. You’ve kept my motivation going when I hit long egg droughts. I appreciate it. Hugs

    I’m learning so much. I have changed the settings to stop them deleting until after the hunt. But I didn’t know to do that. I’ve been keeping notes, but I tend to rely on the link colours to guide me. Will add these to my helpful hints page for next year. Thank you.

    That worked until my computer crashed and I had to reboot. All the links have gone back to blue and I’ve lost all trace of where I’ve been. Gonna cry. Need to find eggs to cheer myself up.

    OMG thank you! That strategy is way faster than my peck n click strategy. Thanks so much. Maybe I see light at the end of the tunnel….. YAY

    I love gemstones but I agree with previous comments – the gemstone section is a total pain to search and navigate. Would it be fair to state that this year a lot more eggs are hidden on individual product pages. Last year I found over 200 without searching a lot of individual product pages. But this [...]

    T Greenlay – cash out your prizes before the end of the hunt – else you’ll miss out. The $20 gift voucher for those on the leader board arrives after the Hunt is finished. If you wait, you might get the voucher but miss out on all your other prizes. Oh and make sure you allow [...]

    On the flip side – I’ve found lots of sneakily hidden eggs this time. Some of them are so cute. I’m trying to be methodical this year, and I’ve discovered lots of egg deserts….. Having fun

    Hi Steve – did the email go out announcing the egg hunt this year – if so I didn’t get it. And although it said on the community page for Lima Beads on Facebook that you were hiding the last few eggs and would announce the egg hunt – I didn’t see a post there either. [...]

    What a fantastic Hunt! Loved every minute of it. I found 225 eggs so I am totally thrilled. My new strategy worked and I found so many more eggs than last year. The eggs were very cleverly hidden – my fav find was the egg riding. Too cute for words. Thank you for showing me so [...]

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2017   1 year, 1 month ago

    Thank you all for your helpful comments re time zones. That gives me an extra 4 hours hunting time from my calculations. YAY. With luck I’m gonna hit the big 200 eggs this year. So very exciting.

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2017   1 year, 1 month ago

    Hey Steve, could you tell me what time zone Lima Beads is in. Calculating when the bead search ends has been a tough one over the years, and last year I thought it ended a full 9 hours before it actually did. Can you tell us poor searchers from Australia what time zone you’re in. Thank [...]

    Karendkurz from my experience if the item link changes colour it means you’ve clicked that link. So you won’t need to look at that page again. My computer is set up to change the links once I’ve clicked them. It’s how I track where I’ve been. Only thing is, don’t close the page down, that counts [...]

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2017   1 year, 1 month ago

    M Lander – yes eggs can be found in the green section at the bottom of the page.

    Congrats Everyone who made it to the Leaderboard, and you fabulous people who made the top ten. Kudos to you.

    A special thanks to NY Beader who kept inspiring me to keep going when he/she got a few more eggs than me. It seemed like we were in a mini race and it was fun. I’d get [...]

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2016   2 years, 1 month ago

    I loved the egg hunt this year. I was much more methodical than ever before, and even went through product pages, and I beat my personal record of 117 eggs by finding 221 (at last count)! I am thrilled. I learnt a lot for next year and have had a blast. So glad we didn’t have [...]

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2016   2 years, 1 month ago

    OOh some of those eggs are devious… just found a diabolical egg. Very cleverly hidden. Thanks for all the egg hunting fun Lima Beads

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2016   2 years, 2 months ago

    I’ve opted for slow and methodical this year and am doing so much better than normal. Maybe I’ve just got the hang of it. However, I’ve landed in the dreaded “check every item page” phase already. Metal beads are killing me…. going to bed before my eyes run away.

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2015   3 years, 1 month ago

    LOL Laura, so do I.
    Never thought I’d get there.
    Congrats to everyone who made it to the leader board. That is real dedication…

  • Pat-from-Oz commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2015   3 years, 1 month ago

    Oh yes, I used the countdown clock in the bag right up until I placed my order. But once that was done I was in the dark timewise. I ordered earlier than I would have because we had the website go down and I didn’t want to miss out. But then it was a temporal guessing [...]
