Easter Egg Hunt 2010

Posted by Kevin on March 25 at 02:27 pm

EEH2010The 2010 Easter egg hunt is here! We were blown away by the popularity of last year’s hunt and by the amount of fun everyone had with it! This year, we wanted to make it bigger and better!

100 Easter Eggs

That’s right, there are 100 eggs hidden on the web site RIGHT NOW. They’re all over the place – no page is off limits! As you find eggs, you’ll see this status bar:

EEH Meter

We don’t want anyone to go crazy, so we should tell you up front: finding all 100 Easter eggs will be difficult. Some of them are very well hidden. It’s not really about find ALL of the eggs this year, it’s about finding the most :)

The Leaderboard

For this year’s hunt, there’s a leaderboard that shows the top 100 hunters. It will show the position of each person, but not the number of eggs they’ve found — we’ll reveal those at the end. See the Leaderboard.

Prizes

The more eggs you find, the more prizes you get. When you reach 10, 25, 50, and 75 eggs a new set of prizes will be unlocked. You can choose from a variety of FREE beads and even a 15% discount on a future order. There are also prizes associated with the Leaderboard. At the end of the Easter Egg Hunt, the top 10 people on the leaderboard will be entered to win The Grand Prize, a $250 Lima Beads Gift Certificate. Everyone else on the leaderboard will be entered to win second prize, a $100 Lima Beads gift certificate. See all the prizes.

Rules

  • The contest ends at 11:59pm on April 4 (Easter). This means you need to make sure and do the following by this time:
    • Collect all the eggs you can find.
    • If you unlocked any prizes, add them to your shopping bag and place your order—all prizes (except the discount code explained below) must be redeemed by the end of the contest.
    • If you unlocked the 15% discount prize, write down your coupon code (you can use it any time until the end of 2010)
    • Watch the blog for an announcement about the $250 drawing
  • There are a total of 100 Easter eggs that we’ve hidden for you to collect. Those are the only ones that count toward the prizes, and you must click on them to collect them. You might see some picture of eggs in promotional materials (like the ones in the grass at the top of this page)… those don’t count toward your total.
  • We can’t offer rain checks on the prizes, so make sure to place your order when you’ve unlocked the prizes, because they’re only available while supplies last!
  • We think we have enough free beads to go around… but in case we run short, we reserve the right to substitute a product of equal value as your prize (hey, it’s free, right? :) . We can’t offer rain checks on unavailable prizes. We also reserve the right to update this list of rules if it needs clarification later.
  • Please don’t share the locations of the eggs. This ruins the fun for everyone :) Location sharers will be disqualified from winning prizes!
  • The most important rule: have fun!

  5. Steve
    Steve says:

    Wow, we never guessed so many eggs would be found already! Good thing there are plenty that are well-hidden :)

    For a few glorious seconds I was actually in the top 50! Then dinner called and now the top 100 is nowhere in sight…
    Thanks Lima Beads, for having another Easter Egg hunt, I had so much fun with the last one! Although it drove me nuts and this one probably will too.

    Bonnie R says:

    Are the prizes an AND or and OR
    If you have 51 eggs can you get the 10 egg prize and the 25 egg prize and the 50 egg prize?

  12. Steve
    Steve says:

    You get one prize from each level (as long as you find enough eggs to unlock the prizes). That means you can have one prize from the 10-egg level, one from the 50-egg level, etc. Hope this helps!

    Ok, So I hit position 42 and now I can’t find any more…… I have to go to work :(

    Damn you Lima Beads for being so fun!!! LOL

    thank you steve.

    Bella Chick aka Chill says:

    Help Steve! I had 40+ eggs…logged out to check the “log in” page for egg…logged back in…and I am back to “0″!!!! Friends…don’t log out!!! I have to start all over…unless LB can help!

    Margaretha G says:

    Is it really true that I must be logged on not to loose the eggs?

  17. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Margaretha, We’re trying to figure out why this happened to Bella Chick. We have all logged out and logged back in many times and never lost our eggs. You should be fine. Bella Chick, we’re looking into this as we speak.

  18. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    This is so much fun! Finding the eggs on here is what got me hooked to LB. Love this website. Thank you LB.

  19. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    OK Bella Chick, we’ve solved the mystery! The problem is, you’ve created two accounts in our system with the same exact email address. This is a rare problem, so no one else has to worry. I see that you’ve found almost as many eggs with the second account, so I would recommend that for now, you stay logged in to the account you’re in right now. If you have a second email address, you could change one of them to differentiate the accounts. I hope this helps. Happy hunting!

  20. Bella Chick aka Chill
    Bella Chick aka Chill says:

    Thanks, Kevin…I did change a month or so ago from my original acct because it was scammed thru my emails…I noticed about an hour ago that for a few moments… there were 2 Bella Chicks on the leaderboard! So I am sticking with this one until I can clarify which one is being used right now…I appreciate your ever-attentive responses…that is why LB is so successful…you care about EVERYONE! Thanks! Bella Chick aka Chill

    2AM and hubby just said GO TO SLEEP! He just doesn’t understand why I want eggs, Need Eggs, HAVE TO HAVE MORE EGGS! Oh well, good night all and sweet dreams (did they hide an egg in my sleep????)

  52. Nicki - Taylored Designs
    Nicki - Taylored Designs says:

    You guys sure do know how to drain the fun out of an easter egg hunt….or maybe it’s the fact that it’s 1 in the morning and I’m still searching…..so addictive. You guys are so clever. The best place I’ve hit on the leaderboard is 9th….but boy can you get knocked back down in a hurry. Guess I’ll be back later today. Good luck ladies!

    I think I’ve looked everywhere that I can for today. I haven’t checked individual pages much yet….need sleep!

    If there are obvious places to look left that I haven’t looked, I’m going to stomp myself, lol!

  55. Lynette O
    Lynette O says:

    Okay, going to bed, husband is standing over me with his hands in his pockets giving me the “look” of doom. Night all….I’ll probably lose my spot by tomorrow, dang it!

    Finally made it to the leaderboard after much searching… eyes are crossed but so fun anyway. Off to bed. Thanks again, Lima, for the Egg Hunt.

  57. Klista H
    Klista H says:

    Steve HELP!!! I had 46 eggs. I clicked a page the site froze. When it unlocked I ended up with 42 eggs. What is going on? I guess I’ll check back later today. What – it is 2:21 AM central time! Goodnight or good morning.

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    I can’t stop! But I still can’t seem to get on the leaderboard! At least this year, I’ve already gotten past 12, and still have several days to go! Thanks, LB, for another great egg hunt! I’m finding info I didn’t even know was there! :D

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    1. Thanks to last year’s hunt, I now know this site inside & out. I’ll definitely have it memorized after this year’s hunt…..LOL

    2. What’s up with all the error pages?!?!?! And why can’t I get into the “necklace” category in the Design Gallery? :(

    3. When my Hubby saw I was hunting for eggs, he said, “You’re hunting for eggs AGAIN?” (I’m sure he was remembering this is how you hooked me in last year…..LOL). I told him there were 100 eggs this year, instead of just 16. I believe there was a great deal of eye-rolling on his part, then he made me promise not to get obsessed…..like last year. ROTFLOL As of that moment, I had found 22 eggs. I quickly found 20 more & had to go to bed before he killed me…..ROTFLOL

  62. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE

    I got to 47 eggs last night or rather at 2:15am and my eyes were so dry and I had such a headache from staring at the screen so long I had to give up and go to bed. I wanted so badly to get to 50 last night (or
    this morning), darn. Well I’ve had one cup of coffee and it is 10:20am and I am slightly re-charged. He he.

  106. Steve
    Steve says:

    risingg, the leaderboard shows the top 100 egg-hunters based on the number of eggs found. While we’re not showing the total number of eggs found (yet), you can probably get an idea for how many other people are finding by reading the comments. Oooh, the intrigue! :)

    I found 50 eggs. I can’t find anymore. You hid the rest good. But I had fun, thank you.

  109. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Hi all. I wanted to give you some stats before we leave for the weekend! So far:

    A total of 35,255 eggs have been found
    There are over 1000 people hunting right now!
    There are 6 eggs that no one has found yet
    The top few people have found over 70 eggs

    That’s a lot of eggs. Remember, you only have to finish in the top 100 (on the leaderboard) to be entered to win the $100 gift certificate. The top 10 hunters will be entered for the $250 gift certificate.

    We set out to make finding all 100 eggs very difficult, so don’t go too crazy trying! :)

    Have a great weekend and happy hunting!

    63 and stucker than stuck!! I’ve found all the surface ones (I think) and a few hidden ones but I don’t have the time to go digging in depth into Lima’s thousands and millions of stone beads and products!! I just hope it’s enough to keep me in the top 100!! Good luck to all!! :D
    71?! That’s amazing!!

    (Lifts up a rock) Nope, not there
    (Digs through the leaves) Nope, not there either
    (Looks in a stump) Nothing there
    (Walks around the base of a tree) Again, empty handed

    Boy, you guys sure hid these eggs really well! Are you sure I don’t need a shovel to find them?

  116. Klista H
    Klista H says:

    Hey DiDi, I had a similar problem. I logged out of my lima beads account then logged back in and when to the page announcing the hunt and my status was back to the correct number. You should try to select your prizes as you win them cause their server is having fun with all of us egg addicts looking for eggs.

    When this is done I won’t need Beaders Anonymous any more I’m gonna need a straight jacket! I swore I would find 50. Well I did and right after that popped up 51. Well 3 hours later you know the story. Tired grummpy and frustrated. I am so glad that the little Lima Bead Tad man is smileing back at me. He is just a cheerful reminder how much fun I am really having. Site running slower. I’ll probably hunt through the night again. Oh woe is me, lol.

    Hello everybody!! Yes, Lynn…I had to get off the computer at 7:30pm!! Isn’t that CRAZY!?!?!?! Then when I woke up, I was out of the top and then (guess what else has stopped me from hunting…ok I guess you can’t so I’ll tell). Today, I entered my history exhibit into the district National History Day competition. After LOTS of waiting, I found out that I was 3rd place for individual exhibits and will be going to State in April (thank goodness it’s after the Egg Hunt LOL)! :D So…I guess I now have a lot of ground to cover…but first I need to eat!!! :D

Remember last year, we were calling the hunt Lima Crack? Waaayyyy funny!!!!

    Good grief. I’ve only found 52 — which doesn’t even appear to be enough to get me in the top 100! However, I feel pretty good about that number since I’m currently in Cornwall with dicey wifi access and lots of cool stuff to do that doesn’t involve sitting indoors with a computer!

It was fun ( I think)…lol, but definetly not a breeze using dail-up !!!! LOl…

    Im up to 40 eggs and its getting harder and harder, just when you think you have looked everywhere…..surprise, you find another one! Im exhausted now, I think i’ll take a break as it seems I must have the whole site memorized. :D

    I am trying to get to 50 eggs. My computer is so so slow that it has taken 3 days to get to 47. Great idea and it does let everyone go through the whole site and see everything. I think everyones wish is going to be long. Thanks for the fun and have been a big fan or Lima Beads for a long time. The best quality and customer service.

    It’s still toooo early for hints. We have a week yet. My vote is NO!!
    I’m still having fun. My eyes are not crossed and my wrist does not hurt. Look for an hour or two and then get up and do something else. Then come back to the hunt. You know you are getting things done around the house and you come back refreshed and revived to start the hunt again. Remember it’s not to find them all, just the most and to have fun. Like last year, people got upset because they didn’t understand the clues either. So I still vote no on the clues. Just info like how many eggs still have not been found by anybody. Still at 6 or have we found 1 or 2 of them. Ha Ha

    Hint? Hint!? Did I hear Kevin say HINT!?! Please,please,prettypleasewithcherryquartzontop!! (big breath!) I mean, Yes, may we please have a hint?! :D

    L Thompson, you are such a patient soul!! You must be one of those beaders who can put weeks into one very technical piece and have it come out totally amazing!! I admire that!! However I must admit that I am not so patient, I am one of those instant gratification beaders who likes those small, pretty projects that take only a few minutes! LOL I would like a hint!! :D

    The clues need to be to something that will help some one get on the leaderboard, not make the top 100 even further away from someone. Espescially those will slow connections who are having the most trouble.

    Kitty Chicky Cat, just remember the old saying, Good things come to those who wait. You have to have patience with 4 and 5 1/2 year old grandkids around all day.

    Managed 58 in one day… i’m cross-eyed and back to work all week so no time during the week to search. A hint would be nice – but only to an egg not found by anyone (only fair that way). I just wish I knew if they are hiding on actual individual bead pages – I’m getting close to only those for an option to search through now.

    Lots of fun though, wish I’d seen the email sooner.

    MY CHICKIE SUE!!! You have hit upon the Egg Hunter’s Mantra — “Just one more…..” ROTFLOL

    The good news is the hunt is keeping us off the street corners trying to score some new beads from strangers in trench coats….. ;)

    The bad news is the hunt is keeping us glued to the LB site buying new beads for our already overflowing stashes….. 8O (Could that be part of LB’s diabolical plot?!?!?! Cue the dramatic organ music & the maniacal laughter…..)

    OK, go figure — yesterday I had a rip-roaring migraine, so I took the day off from egg hunting. Came on here bright & early & found one right away in a weird location. Hmmmmm Perhaps being hung over on my meds is the secret…. LOL

    Saw the cutest little baby boy yesterday at the show. He was about a year old. He had an easter tee shirt on. I kept patting his belly because it had a picture of an Easter egg on it. His mom thought I was being a nice, I was just trying to get credit for finding another egg! It didn’t work!

    Just keep looking. Just keep looking. Just keep looking, looking, looking. What do we do? We look, look.

    Its been slow going since #50. I’m running out of places to look so a hint would be great! though I have found eggs on pages I know I have looked at before.

  293. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE

  295. L Kay
    L Kay says:

    Also to comment about eggs migrating I had been on a page the previous day and there was no egg went into the same page next day and there was one. This is what is so aggravating. You can’t spend extra hours rechecking what you’ve already gone through.

  296. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Hi Everyone. Wow, a lot of eggs have been found! The top people have found almost 90, so we’re going to wait and see how they progress before giving any hints.

    Also, regarding eggs migrating or moving around the site.. I can say with 100% certainty that this isn’t the case. I think they’re just easy to miss after a while :)

Some of us have families to take care of and jobs we must go to (especially in this economy) etc. and can’t spend every waking moment at LB. Congrats to those who do have the time and energy! I gave up!!!

    Kevin, I respectfully disagree about the “migrating” question; I’ve visited a page twice in the same session–once it had an egg, and once it didn’t. Could it be a browser issue? For example, the Bead Machine doesn’t work for me in IE7, but it works in Firefox.

    Hi KM, I sent you an e-mail about the problem you’re encountering. In the mean time, I can assure everyone that we’re not moving eggs around–we’re not *that* devious :) Also, to answer Beady-Eyed Dragon’s question, you don’t need to search the whole site using different browsers. The eggs are showing up in all of them.

  311. WireWrangler
    WireWrangler says:

    My two cents worth re: hints. It would be beneficial at some point to know if there are some areas of the site where there are NO eggs. I.E. every enlargement and/or size chart?…..Think of it as out of bounds????
    OK back to the fun hunt. Had to switch to the Wacom tablet, had to pry the mouse out of right hand. RSD (repetitive stress disorder), OCD.
    L. Thompson right on! Niki, too funny! And, yes, I have a day job.

    L Kay says:

    I’m telling yall there is an issue with the eggs not being there and then they are. My computer has been having issues every since this egg hunt started. The Big Green Machine has just told me several times it cannot run with my web browser. Hello it has been running fine until this hunt with no issues at all. By the way it’s running now but who knows if it will the next time it reloads.

  337. Miilia
    Miilia says:

    I would also find it much more helpful to know where not to look, than to get a clue that tells location of single egg. Also I don´t speak english as native language and in past I have found those clues sometimes very hard to understand.

    I was taking a break away from the computer this afternoon and was looking out our picture window… what did I see beside the sidewalk…
    a green and white egg!!!
    I swear!!! And me without my mouse in my hand!!! I said to my husband to come and have a look and low and behold if he didn’t say yes, that does look like an egg!!! It turned out to be a piece of garbage balled up in an oval shape. So, you see, I don’t need a straight jacket quite yet…..mumble, mumble, mumble….

    I agree with L Sanford — I have found sooooooo many perfect hiding places that DIDN’T have an egg hidden in them!!! LOL

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    HA! I looked in the infamous peach pits too! Nope, none there. I agree, the eggs are sometimes there, sometimes not. There’s one for sure that keeps hiding and reappearing.

    Also,I like hints. ;-) Hint, hint….

    I also cannot access the newest Fresh Picks via Snapshots. If I wait about a day till the page fills up, then I can see some of them. What’s up with that?

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    OK. I’m re-reading what I just wrote and that makes no sense! Eggshot eyes and brain!!! 8O

    I was not referring to eggs actually being on the peach pits page. AND the one that keeps hiding is on another page all together.

    I think I need to call it quits for awhile. 13+ hours of continuous searching for 1 egg. It’s literally making me sick.. I just keep telling myself one more egg but each one takes more and more hours than the last and I really feel sick from staring at the screen so long.. Congrats to those who have done well!

    UPDATE: Every egg has now been found at least once. The top hunters have over 90 eggs, but no one has found all 100 yet.

    For now, we’re going to hold off on hints because it seems that many of you only wanted a hint if it would be for an egg that no one had found.

    Lynn I found that sometimes it makes a difference how you access a page.

    Gah…why do I have sooo much to do this week??? I’d love to just spend the whole week searching, but I’ve promised three different people completed projects (two of them having nothing to do with jewelry) by the end of the week, plus a 6 month old who’s only letting me get stuff done in 15-30 minute increments, so searching has to take a backburner…I suppose I could substitute searching for sleep for a few days, right? ;)

    Kevin, I was wondering if you could tell us how many eggs were hidden in different sections?! Like, is there one egg hidden in Each of the gemstone bead’s letter categories?! (one in the “Z” group of stones, only one in the “Q” group of stones, one hidden among an “X” stone, etc.?!)

    Was looking at a bead magazine last night and told my husband “I keep looking for eggs on every page!” He just laughed. I swore I was not going to get caught up in the “hunt” and I stayed away from LB until yesterday….then I was just going to check out the POD, the BGBM…and low and behold I found an egg…and then another. Before I knew it I was up to 52 eggs. ACK!! I’m officially addicted to the hunt. My eyes hurt, my head hurts. Does LB have any remedies for this sickness???

  451. WireWrangler
    WireWrangler says:

    Lynn LECLE, hilarious! Talk about visual imagery re: the little Lima Guy. I am afraid that will be what I’ll be seeing instead of the dastardly eggs.
    Thank you, Kevin. It helps to know that all the eggs have been found at least once. And, a backward hint, Steve. If you turned off the snapshot? My vote for a hint remains the same, any other places on LB where there are NO eggs? Or, there are eggs in every part of the site except for snapshots?
    Here’s my take on the vanishing, reappearing eggs, when you hit a new level more eggs are revealed. NO?
    Thanks again for the fun. SSS.

    Last night, I dreamt that I clicked on the site and there were eggs everywhere. I started clicking and clicking, and I had 95 within five minutes!

    Missed the first days of hunting while on vacation, and have spent tooooo much time looking since! Up to 66 and stuck! Looking through the gallery and adding pages of favorites! Find myself so busy checking out the designs, and have had to go back because I forgot if I looked for eggs! This is nuts! I only today off from work to keep looking!

    Hi Whimsy Girl,

    As we just discussed over email, that egg falls into the category of pages that Steve discussed in the “helpful info” posted today. It is in the correct location, where we planned for it to be. It’s just a bit tricky :)

    Hey, when did LB start putting little sneering faces on the eggs that we have already found. They look back at you and give a disgusting grin! Sometimes, they even say things to me like I’m a dummy because I already found that one. I don’t think they are very nice eggs!

  464. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    I think LB should have put an end to this at midnight Easter EVE. Do they realize that we will be tacking our kids and grandkids while they are hunting THEIR eggs? We will be digging in their baskets, and Lord knows we will all be eating peanut butter sandwiches for lunch, because, hey who has time to mess with a ham?

    whimsy girl – We’re working on something for our web site that will allow you to browse items that are out of stock and add them to a “notify” list so we can let you know when they come back. It should be ready this summer.

    For the purposes of the Easter egg hunt, we have made sure that eggs are hidden on products that have no chance of going out of stock anytime soon. All of the eggs are present on the site right now and will be through at least Sunday.

    Kathryn Lobert says:

    OK – somebody at LB is being given too much time at the computer coming up with diabolical ideas. First, it was this hunt that has made thousands of people lose touch with reality as we hunt down the eggs. THEN, when the thing is almost over, many people have found a WHOLE LOT of the eggs they come up with an April Fools joke that could easily push someone over the egg-dge!! Although I have read it is good for the health to STOP YOUR HEART every day! :)

    My husband asked jokingly (I think) if I was going to need counseling after this. I might, because I wasn’t even on this website and I saw an egg, and let out a squeal of delight and tried to click on it… He won’t make fun of me after he sees all the free beads I’m going to get, even if I don’t win the drawing.

    I have to give you guys mad props for creating this website. I brag about this website to my husband, he’s in school for web design….he’s looked at your site many times and we’re both so amazed at how you keep us “addicts” involved. I don’t know if there’s a such thing as an award for the best website, but you would win hands down. This egg hunt has forced me to search through the past years of the websites history and it’s just amazing at how far you all have come. So thank you for keeping us so involved in your dream, and so addicted to your website. Have a happy Easter!!

    This was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get my bead order in the mail!

It was nice to sit on the couch and search for those elusive eggs!!!! We got encouraging news about Grandma. As Jen stated above, she was able to go off the respirator and her vitals and blood counts are good. They had to give her some potassium today, but it seems that things are looking good. Thank you everyone for your prayers, they are so appreciated.

    Well, I have only found 52, which took about 2 hours in all to do. The first 25 came fast…thought I was on a role and would make it to 100…but that changed and it has become pretty hard finding them!! Anyways, I’m gonna throw in the towel, seeing that it is now Easter and no time to hunt anymore. Want to say “Thank You”:) to all at Lima Beads and “Thank You”:) for the free beads. I will truly enjoy making a couple necklaces, and probably a pair of earrings as well with them.

    Stuck at 70 but that’s about it for me. Many pages that won’t load and pictures that come up blank so if I’m missing them – so be it. Thanks Lima Beads for the fun – and the MISERY too. Next year – more coffee to keep me going longer – Good luck to everyone out there – have fun, and have a great Easter (however, I will probably check throughout the day if possible.

    I’m giving up – there is no way I could ever find another egg. My eyes are crossed, my clicking finger is tired and I have no idea where to look anymore – and last night I saw a nightmare about a treasure hunt – surprisingly I wasn’t looking for eggs but for keys, but I know where that dream came from :) .

    I truly admire all those people in top 10 – how on Earth did you do it?

    Chickie Nonnie T says:

    I,m cooking Easter dinner, but taking a break for my feet. So I thought I’d check on my new beading buddies and say – HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

    Just curious, the contest ends at 11:59pm, but which time zone? Guess what though – until just a minute ago, I thought it ended at 11:59am. So much for eyes crossing.

    Hi all, and happy Easter. I am new on lima beads, and I am stuck on 49 eggs, and was thinking about stopping for the day, but not sure if I should just cash in what I have or comeback later. When does the egg hunt close down?

  585. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    Welcome to the family – You only have until midnight tonight to cash in. I suggest you check a little longer – have you read the blogs? Theres tons of information you would be interested in there.

    Got my 50 yesterday and was going to quit but suddenly there was no. 51. Need to know what time zone 11:59 is. Is that East Coast since I’m out west that would be 8:59 Pacific Coast. Also do we need to buy other things or can we just check out with our winning choices?

    Stuck at 57 – I give up!! My eyes are tired, my mouse hand and wrist are sore..was hoping to find 75, but now its to the point that I don’t remember where I’ve been. Good luck to those in the top 10 and top 100.Lima – please let us know where all 100 of those tricksy little eggs were.

    I am also one wondering to which time zone 11:59 applies; is it on here somewhere and I missed it? Entirely possible since I am now eggbrained. :)

    Diamonddustshoe, you raise an excellent point. I am in the central time zone and since LB is in the Eastern time zone, I have an hour less than I thought. DRAT!!! (I am actually looking forward to getting my life back….)

    Wow, what a week it was! I’ve added a ton of fresh picks and designs to my faves, expanded my wish list to bursting, and spent countless hours searching for those elusive eggs! I wonder how many hours have been spent here this week?

    A hearty Congrats to those of you in the Top 10! Wish I was up there with ya, but I don’t know how you did it! Luck, skill or just dedication – my hat is off to you!

    Thanks for the goodies LB! You’re the best!

    Got Beads says:

    I’m pleading UNCLE, I have found 65 eggs, the last two today after a 3 day dry spell. My eyes are blood shot and crossed. So disappointed I didn’t reach my goal of 75, but boy did I have fun trying. There are a lot of very talented beaders out there, it’s been fun going through the galleries and fresh picks.
    Good Job Lima Beads on another “Eggcellent” Hunt.

  608. Jeanne S
    Jeanne S says:

    I hate to say it (and I found 75 eggs because I got obsessed) but this ceased being fun pretty quickly. I have horrible tendinitis in my right wrist and it’s quite inflamed, my neck hurts even more than usual, and my 10-week-old headache is even worse than when I started. So I think I need to be dissuaded from this next year. Of course, I am easily tempted by free stuff. Thousands of mouse clicks can be very damaging. Finding the afikomen never hurt this much. Somehow all the stuff on my “to do” list for Sunday got ignored as well.

    Mirjam E says:

    I was in the Top 10 for a long time and kept looking until I had to go to bed, but because of the time difference missed out on about 6 hours of ‘searching time’. Just woke up and looked and I’ve been bumped off the Top 10 during that time! I’m so frustrated! :(

  610. Cutestchick
    Cutestchick says:

    Well All I think I speak for everyone when I say: Our obsession with finding the most eggs is officially over! It has been fun although at times frustrating being bumped further and further down the leader board! Hats off to those that made it on the Top Ten List! And to the rest of us that made the Top 100 List! There are no Losers in this Egg Hunt we are all Winners! We made it through , this Egg Hunt was not at all easy, LB made it extremely difficult to make it to the Top! So we all have to be proud of ourselves to get as far as we did! I know they are a lot of discouraged and frustrated Egg Hunters out there, I know because I have been reading your posts! I should be the most frustrated because I’m #95, and I made it on the Top 10 twice, it was short-lived but I wasn’t going to be a sore loser! Next year it’s on like Donkey Kong! Anyways, Congrats to us all for finding some hard to find eggs! And to LB for making it impossible! Cheers! LOL! ;)

    KittyMom Linda says:

    Thanks LB – think we all became a little closer through this. Even though we had the spirit of competition, I have seen everyone cheer each other on, even when it meant they got themselves lower on the board. That’s what true friends are. And LB, hope you lost as much sleep as we all did – you will suffer today getting ALL THOSE ORDERS that came in at the end ready for shipment – I’m waiting for mine!!!!

  613. KittyMom Linda
    KittyMom Linda says:

    Hey Lima Beads – could you tell us the TOTAL number of eggs we found collectively?

    You beaders sure are better than I am at finding those eggs!!!! Are there REALLY 100? Wish you would reveal to us where they all were so we could see how blind we are!!!! Had alot of fun tho! Thanks LB for the challenge and the fun!

    Nicki - Taylored Designs says:

    Thank God that is over!!! Back to my life now….I think staring at the computer screen made my eyes burn so badly I didn’t even want to be awake anymore. My only question is this…after reading every article in last years blog I saw where last years Egg Hunt only had 16 eggs…..since this year had more than 6 times that amount, should we be looking forward to over 600 eggs next year?

    Oh crap, why is it that I just now realized that the free gifts had to be in an order placed by yesterday? I’m extremely disappointed that I did all of that work for nothing…..I guess I was so used to having a few days after the promotion ended….who had time to place an order when there were so many eggs to be found? Any chance this is an April Fools joke too??? Please!!

  619. autumn
    autumn says:

    Wow! I was out of town for the weekend and got knocked from the top 10 all the way down to #26 in just a couple of days. That’s okay, though, because I returned home to find my prize beads that I ordered earlier this week!

    Good work everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

    BJC says:

    This was fun…again, LB! I was lying in bed last night, and out of the blue I said, “Crap!” My husband wanted to know what was up. I told him I forgot to place my LB order and it had to be done by midnight. He dutifully looked at the clock and said, “You have 3 minutes.” Yes, I did get back up and go to my computer, and place my order. And in the process of checking out, I found another egg! Unfortunately, my egg count was still in the 60′s, so the extra one didn’t help with the leader board. It certainly made me feel better, though. There’s just something about finding those eggs…!

  622. Mary Brady
    Mary Brady says:

    Congrats to everybody who found eggs, especially the Leaderboard people. I want to know how many people were dying to comment about the egg on Matt’s face.

    To those in the top ten – congrats; to those on the leaderboard – great job; to everyone else and LB – thanks for the fun – I found a great new source for supplies and won some cool beads. I was inspired by the design gallery (you people have some AWESOME talent) and I LOVE the “fresh picks” feature, it helps to see combinations I would not think to make. Thanks again.

  624. WaterburyJewels
    WaterburyJewels says:

    Congratulations to everyone on the Leaderboard…I made it up to 68 eggs only to be on the board for 30 seconds… I only wish I had the time to make it to 100….but Oh well!…. there is always next year….Thanks LB for another great game for us to interact with your web site….I found some great beads….

    L Thompson says:

    Ditto on thanks for a great game, even if the competiveness really came out. I tried not to write about it. I just sat in front of this screen and cried. And then finally found the egg to put me about the “line” again, to be knocked out once again with no time left. I went with a stop time EST. It was fun, interesting, aggravating, annoying, informative, funny, sad, happy, hoppy humor all rolled into one addictive game that all of us grown women, and men, should know better than getting wrapped up in. But we all did it, and will all do it again next year. I will just make sure that I am more prepared!!! HA HA HA Who knows, I caught myself reading more blogs and comments than just scrolling through looking for eggs.. Maybe this year I will join the club………….
    Thanks again Lima Beads for the fun, a great website, your great people, and for the great community that you have allowed to gather.. Oh yeah, and thanks for the free stuff. You guys are awesome.

    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m glad that’s over for this year! It was fun, but I have nevers looked at so many beads, fresh picks, or designs in the whole time I’ve been with Lima Beads. That was tough! Congratulations to everyone who got on the leaderboard and the top 10. You all must have had a lot of spare time on your hands! :) Good luck to all in the drawings!

    I had a blast looking for eggs and fund a lot of cool things to order and to add to my wish list. I have no idea where the other 25 eggs are – but had fun finding the first 75! thanks for the freebies LB and the quick order – everything looks great and I’ve already used some in designs.

    Laura Z aka Veggie Chick says:

    Up to yesterday, I was up to 74 eggs. I knew I was going to be looking for #75 until the very end. Lucky me, right before I had to start getting ready to go out for Easter, on a whim I logged out (I kept thinking about those people who were complaining that when they logged out and signed back in they lost their eggs). That was one thing I hadn’t tried and I actually screamed when that egg showed. My husband was outside and he said he’s sure the whole neighborhood heard me. I didn’t care who had heard me. I scared the dickens out of one of my cats. I don’t think I would have been as excited if I had won the lottery. I am so glad it is over. I have had a headache and severe body stiffness all week. I also aggravated my Carpel Tunnel in a big way. I am so glad to get back to normal life. I can’t say it wasn’t fun, but after awhile I became obsessed and I KNOW I went a little crazy (ask my husband). Well, anyway, thanks Lima Beads (I think). I can’t wait to get all of my freebies, besides the subtantial order I put in. When is the drawing? I am on the leaderboard and I have my fingers and toes crossed. I still have about 30 things on my wishlist and that $100 prize would come in handy.

And yes, I’m glad to get back to normal life too, and my boy-friend’s glad to have me back he says!

    Thank you LB! I was not able to find many. I prepare taxes and well the 15 of April is soooooo close. So I did not get to look too much. How about a contest that is not so close to this time of year? I am an Indiana girl so Go BUTLER!!!!!

    Laura Z aka Veggie Chick says:

    OMG!!! Please tell me I’m not the only one. I decided to go to my Wish List and clean it up a bit since I was adding just about every other thing to it during the egg hunt. Well, even after I took about 20-30 things off of it, I decided to count what was left. On an earlier post, I said that I had about 30 things on my Wish List. Boy, did I underestimate. I actually STILL have 125 things on my list. Is anyone else as bad as I am? I sure hope so. (I kinda think there are going to be a lot of yes’s to my question. LOL)

    Amen, Maia – go Butler!!And as far as the other thing about having a LONG wish list – I think I am close to having the store and the wish list match! Looking for eggs certainly added to it! Glad I stopped at 50 – and I got my order TODAY!!! I LOVE it – although there might be 1 or 2 or 10 items that were not part of the prizes that I may have “inadvertently” ordered. Ok – off to the play table (oops, I mean work table:)

    I discovered LB a month ago. I have learned so much about gemstones as a result of the Easter Egg Hunt. I have been inspired by the designs I saw in the Gallery. A lot of very talented beaders. I am looking forward to receiving the freebies and many other beads I felt I “needed” while searching for eggs. This is a really nice website.

    Laura Z aka Veggie Chick says:

    The Lima Bead staff has been awfully quiet today. Do you think they’re spinning their wheels trying to fill all of our orders? Do you think that they’re crazy, insanely busy? It serves them right. (Only kidding, LB) We did it to ourselves.

    Yes…they have been pretty quiet today! I agree with Jill V about learning so much about these beautiful gems through the egg hunt….I was around for last years’ hunt and they got me hooked then. I said it last year and I’ll say it again…the Lima team are marketing geniuses with their interactive website and that darn hunt….I saw items this year that I missed seeing last year!!! And yes, my wish list pretty well covers the whole inventory too!!! :-D

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I keep checking in to see if there’s any news – but they must be up to their ears in orders! It has been quite a learning experience, and my wish list and stash grew a LOT! I’m thinking I could open an LB satellite business from my home…

    Plucky, I’m sooo sorry you missed the order deadline. I had forgotten too, but remembered in the afternoon.

    Guess they won’t be announcing tonight, so I’m gonna give my keyboard & mouse a rest! Hugs! :D

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Lori…I read on Lima’s Facebook page that they won’t be announcing the winners until tomorrow morning, so I guess we have to stay tuned. They probably spent most of the day today taking all of those darn eggs off their website. Has everyone noticed that they have posted the total of eggs that the people on the leaderboard got…it has been an egg-stremely close race…hehehe!! :-D

  647. CC
    CC says:

    I used to think of myself as a pretty level headed individual…then the Egg Hunt came along! I totally agree with some of the other ladies about this being a mixture of joy and torture. It all started innocently enough…a little egg hunt…what could it harm? Yea Right…No sleep, doing household musts at the weirdest hours cause had to get back to egg hunting, scared the Heck out of my poor little Thelma when I finally found an Egg at 3 a.m., my poor husband getting Quick to make dinners that he ate alone cause I couldn’t move the computer to the dining table…hmmm will I do this again next year…Heck Yes!!!! LB you guys are diabolical and a little warped! :) Who came up with this crazy, fun, addictive way to turn sane human beings into egg hunting fiends? My husband dragged me out of the house on Friday to go to dinner with friends…tried to tell them we’d do it another time…Hubby said no…must get you away from that computer. Do I have a lot of time on my hands…No, but OCD sub Ex hunt kicked in when I hit 51 eggs. There must have been an addictive substance that was triggered at that magic number. LOL! Cutest Chick you were right on…we all deserve to be thrilled that 1) We lived through this 2)Husbands (or signigficant others) and pets didn’t sue us for alienation of affection 3)we got some awesome Eye Opening insight into the breadth of this web sight and the amazing designs created 4)that we are all waiting patiently for our free beads and the necessary extras that fell into the shopping bag!! Bottom line, thank you LB for this week of insanity! Thankfully the effects aren’t permanent and I for one will notify Wildblue ahead of time next year so they don’t freak when my computer time doubles!!! Good luck to all the certificate entries. :)

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Thanks Lima Beads! It was great fun, and not life goes on while we eagerly await next year. Comcast had an egg on the home page. I actually clicked on the dumb thing thinking oh heavens I finally found another and didn’t notice the computer had not flipped to Lima’s home page. Duh!
    My husband kept after me said he was tired of watching tv alone. I was only in the other room for heavens sake. I’m not an avid fan of kick box wrestling 5 nights a week anyhow.

    Janz Joolz says:

    @ Faithful Chick – Oh my gosh, I clicked on the Comcast egg, TOO!! Ahaha! Except I actually knew I’d gone to Comcast’s page, but I only had 64 and I was so determined to hit 75 that I momentarily lost my mind! AND, a few days earlier I had clicked on an egg decoration in an online article that had nothing to do with LB! I’m not sure I’m mentally sound enough to participate in an egg hunt ever again!!!

    Yvonne A says:

    It was good clean fun. A great way to explore the ENTIRE website (and still not find all of those darn eggs)! Did a little shopping, won a few things and enjoyed it completly. I can relate to everything Yorkie Chick said, LOL!
    Can’t wait to do it again. Maybe they won’t wait till Easter. We could just have a scavenger hunt with a theme or something.

  651. whimsy girl
    whimsy girl says:

    okay, so now that we can give away hints, did anyone find eggs on the size charts or in the blow up shots? I never found any, but the first time I went through I wasn’t clicking on them. I never made it all the way back through again. Also, were there any in the designs (I know about the one on the necklace heading) and in the fresh picks other than the ones on the first page and by the snapshots?

  652. Nicki - Taylored Designs
    Nicki - Taylored Designs says:

    Whimsy-I found at least 1 in the size chart that you have to click on and it opens another window….crazy how deep these darn eggs went. I never made it through all of the blown up size charts…apparently I was too focused on the eggs I didn’t even realize our free beads had to be ordered before the egg hunt was over. I’m soooooooo bummed! I bet they would get a few more orders if they allowed us to place our orders with our free beads on there…..and I would be ever so grateful! HINT HINT LIMA!!!!(I know you’re reading this)

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Faith, one of the disappearing eggs was located under the count down sign on the BGBM. It says if you don’t want to see this message click here. Once you clicked on it, an egg appeared and then the next time it would disappear. There was also one on the home page mixed in the “New and back in stock” rotating items.
    :-D 8-)
