Easter Egg Hunt 2011

Posted by Steve on April 14 at 02:29 pm

Easter Egg Hunt 2011The 2011 Easter egg hunt is here! This is the third annual hunt and it’s bigger and better than ever! If this will be your first Lima Beads Easter Egg Hunt, it’s simple. We’ve hidden Easter eggs (a lot of Easter eggs) on our web site. Find them and win beads, supplies, coupons and even gift certificates.

This year’s hunt is very similar to last year’s with two exceptions:

  1. The hunt is a bit easier because I can tell you up front that there are NO eggs hidden in “The Garden” or “Fresh Pick” sections of our web site. We figured that with almost 12,000 fresh picks (wow!), everyone would go crazy looking through all those pages for eggs and we don’t need a bunch of crazy beaders running around! All other pages are fair game and may contain eggs.
  2. Second, there’s a new twist! We’ve hidden 3 golden eggs somewhere on the site. Whoever finds them first wins a gift certificate. Read below for more details…

100 Easter Eggs

That’s right, there are 100 eggs hidden on the web site RIGHT NOW (plus an additional 3 special GOLDEN eggs). They’re scattered all over the Lima Beads web site. The only pages where you won’t find eggs are those in the Fresh Picks or Garden sections, as I mentioned above. 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 the 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

Just like last year, 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 collection of coupons worth 15% – 25% off various items. 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.

The Golden Eggs

goldenEggThis year, we’re also hiding 3 special golden eggs (in addition to the 100 eggs, making a grand total of 103)… If you’re the very first one to find a golden egg, you’ll win a $25 Gift Certificate to our store! If the same person finds multiple golden eggs, that lucky beader will win one $25 gift certificate for each golden egg they find. Yowza! The golden eggs don’t count towards your leaderboard total, and you can keep an eye on who’s found the golden eggs on the leaderboard.

Rules

  • The contest ends at 11:59pm on April 24, 2011 (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. Normal shipping rates will apply.
    • If you unlocked the coupon prize, write down your coupon code (you can use it any time until the end of 2011)
    • Watch the blog for an announcement about the $250 drawing
  • There are a total of 100 Easter eggs plus an additional 3 “golden” 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 :) Also, you must find the eggs yourself–you can’t have a robot (or a computer) do it for you. Location sharers and robots will be disqualified from winning prizes! Gotta keep it fair for the rest of us!
  • The most important rule: have fun!

    I remember the heavy traffic last year making the site a bit slow, and my husband (a software engineer) commented, “is this how Steve stress-tests his servers?”

    Steve says:

    Helen, actually, we try and stress-test them before! Sometimes, though, the eggs are just too popular. Haha…

    Okay – I’m not where I want to be, but my lunch is almost up and my mouse hand is starting to ache.
    I was trying to scan the Fresh Daily and the page froze up and wouldn’t go down to the bottom of the page.
    There must be way too much traffic.

    I think you are just great at Lima Beads, I have been so pleased with everything I have purchased. Earlier today I started looking for the eggs and then left work to come home, my grand-daughter was at my house and I said “Oh I have to get back to hunting easter eggs”, she had the funniest look on her face and said “Now how are you doimg this are you hiding your own”. At which time I started laughing and could hardly tell her what I was talking about. By the way I live alone. It has been fun in any case.

    L McGinnis says:

    I must call it a night. This is The BEST FUN each year. I slowed way down though finding eggs & got caught up in all the Beautiful things you have available on this site. I too had forgotten how very wonderful you all are (embarrassed) so now my cart is full & I should be looking for easter eggs :) my eyes are sore so I must finish tomorrow. Thank you so so much Lima Bead Team for taking the time to offer all of us the very Exciting opportunity to play & also stock up on some wonderful jewelry making goodies.

    - There’s one golden egg left.
    - The most popular coupon prize so far is 15% off gemstone beads.

    diamonddustshoe says:

    Honestly, frustrating as it might be to hear, Klista is right; you just have to keep looking. Wander around, look at pages or features you haven’t looked at before. Go surfing, follow links. You’ll find more.

  120. Brooke H

    you have the most eggs ,i just have 45.there is no way possible,without hints!!!

    Well, I have found 55 eggs & what I really wanted was the Coral, so even if I don’t find anymore, I’m Really happy!!

    Surfing..yes, but oh the thought of all those pages ;(

  122. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    I didn’t have any hints. I will tell you this. I have some time off, so I am sitting here being almost mechanically methodical. For a lot of people, that’s not much fun! So there are two approaches: you can relax and have fun; surf and be surprised, or you can go over each page with a fine toothed comb. There is still lots of time! I’m CRAZY determined, so please don’t let my hunt discourage yours.

  123. Brooke H
    Brooke H says:

    yes,you are doing super!now i am up to 49 and it is becoming more fun.Congrats on being #1!

    ya!! i have reached 50

  134. Maia
    Maia says:

    Thank you. I had a bad reaction to one of the drugs so I may have a new treatment waiting for me next week. Oh boy am I a little unsure how it will go. Beading is keeping me sane though. I have been very busy “Limabeading”.

  135. Madeline R
    Madeline R says:

    help me!!!! this is getting ridiculous…… been searching every single page top to bottum and havent found one more egg yet!!!! i think im going crazy!!!

  136. Brooke H
    Brooke H says:

    maddie–Ya,it is weird!! its good that you found some,how many are you up to?I would help you more but i just read the rules and it said that location sharers would be disqualified.:(

  139. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Hi Everyone. Unfortunately, I just had to delete some comments. Please remember that, as per the rules, anyone sharing locations of eggs will be disqualified. We want to keep it fun and fair for everyone! Please don’t share the locations of eggs you find. We will most likely give some hints later in the contest. Thank you!

  140. Madeline R
    Madeline R says:

    at least u have the 50, L hembree! i guess i just have to keep searchin. ill get there eventually.

  144. Madeline R

    42

  145. Maia
    Maia says:

    Sorry Kevin I was not giving a location of an egg. I was asking if that fire polished bead is gray or smokey? I am looking for a smokey fire polished bead for a bracelet.

  146. Brooke H
    Brooke H says:

    that is great!!my dad played for me last night . i went to bed with 32 and woke up with 40!

  147. Maia
    Maia says:

    Bracelets and necklaces. My earrings look funny. Just being honest. Maybe I should take a class on earrings. I have always loved jewelry and making it is so much more fun. And a learning process also.

  148. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    I’m sorry Maia. I must have deleted that by accident, I definitely didn’t mean to. I can answer this for you. That particular bead is more of a light smokey color. I definitely wouldn’t call it gray. I hope this helps. Again, I’m sorry. I must be more careful with my clicks…

  149. L hembree
    L hembree says:

    @maia how many eggs do you have?

    @ brooke p

  168. DragonflyDi
    DragonflyDi says:

    Can one of the Lima crew advise what happens if you find a gold egg -I clicked on one and it said I found it already?? will it not tell you if you are the first to find it?

  169. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Dragonfly Di – When you click on a golden egg, you will see a message. It will either say that you are not the first one to find the egg, or it will say that you are the first one and you get a $25 gift certificate. 2 out of the 3 golden eggs were found in the first hour of the Easter egg hunt, but the third one is still hanging around!

  170. Brooke H
    Brooke H says:

    dragonfly d,maybe that means that some one else has already found it.

  171. DragonflyDi

    thanks Kevin – I guess that means I was not the first to click on it :(

  177. Aiyleta
    Aiyleta says:

    Should we be able to see the Leaderboard? When I click on links to it, it just shows me how many eggs I have, the blurb about prizes, the golden eggs, and a bit of the chatter.

  178. Aiyleta
    Aiyleta says:

    P.S. I am having a lot of fun, and I really appreciate the effort put into this hunt! I am just curious if I’m having a problem or if it’s that way for everyone. ;p

    Alyeta, I noticed that. When I am seated at my Mac (Firefox) I see the large board and heading on here. When I pull up my laptop (Windows 7 and Firefox) I can’t see it at all, not even a heading, like it was never there.

  184. L hembree
    L hembree says:

    heres how i get on…
    fresh daily blog and then there should be a link at the top in blue letters saying leader board and then you click on it and scroll down a little bit and you will see diamonddustshoe at the top with 80 EGGS!!!!!

  185. Aiyleta

    Hallucinating Helena says:

    Gosh! I fell asleep at my laptop last night. I either found a golden egg, or dreamt that I found one… with the message that I wasn’t the first. Then I think I dreamt of a page where there were tons of eggs all over! :| more eggs (and sleep) needed.

    Steve says:

    Hi Aiyleta, we made a couple tweaks to the leaderboard to try and get it showing up for you. It’s working for us, so it’s hard to guess what’s wrong. I’d love to know if you see it on your laptop now! Thanks for letting us know.

  196. LaLaWillis
    LaLaWillis says:

    do the eggs disappear after someone finds them? maybe i am not doing something right….been clicking forever with no luck!! booooooo!

  197. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    Note!: If you aren’t able to see the leaderboard scores, check to see if you’re using AdblockPlus or the like in Firefox. Disable it for this site, and the leaderboard will reappear. Not sure why it’s different between systems, but that worked for my laptop.

  198. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    I’ve just been told that one of the latest adblock filters has an entry for (hashtags)leaderboard, and that’s why you have to disable it for this page/site…”whitelist” it. Hope that helps.

    This is very addicting! Will the location of the golden eggs be revealed after the contest is over?

  200. Karokat
    Karokat says:

    No, the eggs don’t disappear after someone finds them, Laurel. They’re just in some very hidden places. I’ve been hunting for about 14 hours, and I’m starting to see eggs everywhere – like in my dog’s water bowl, on the cereal box … oh yeah, I’m losing it!

  201. Janz Joolz
    Janz Joolz says:

    Boo to asking LB for hints! Everybody has the same chance to find the eggs! And with that said, I’m content to retire my search now with the 50 I’ve found. Last year I kept going until 75 but nearly went bonkers and blind, so this year I know my limits! :) Happy Hunting, All!

    Southern Chick says:

    I got online and found 2 eggs almost immediately. Without having eggs in the fresh picks, I’m running out of places to look. I think that I’ve found the same eggs at least TWICE! I’m also catching myself looking for eggs on my farmville site! Pathetic!
    I just hope that I can find the 50th egg! I think that’ll be enough for me.

    This is really a fabulous marketing idea! Props to the individual(s) who came up with the idea because it really does get traffic throughout the site while also getting the shopper familiar with all the activities available. Before today, I came here solely for the Vintaj products. Now I am a much more informed buyer and and have found a new place to share my finished projects. I wasn’t aware of that feature. Well done. (BTW, I’m in marketing!)

  236. WHITE DOG

    I agree, this is a great marketing idea, I didn’t realize you sold so many items that I love, and your prices are good. I’ll be shopping with you a lot more now. I only have 53 eggs and seem to keep looking in the same places. I thought I was about to give up and then found a new egg. It’s very hard to stop. I too am seeing eggs in my sleep! =)

    WHITE DOG says:

    Can someone help me please? I found a golden egg but there is no message. It doesn’t say I won nor does it say this has already been found. when I click on the golden egg, the page turns to my total amount of eggs found, and at the top it says “you already found this egg”. I am puzzled about whether or not it has been previously found. Can anyone help me?

  238. Brooke H

    Well, I was going to walk away with dignity and get some real work done, but then I just had to check in and see how the hunt was going…Before long I was combing the gemstones, leaving, literally, no stone unturned! Carried away in a transport of spirituality, I thought what superbly beautiful pieces of creation stones are! Then my lower nature took over again, and it occurred to me that some of them would make really spectacular coatings for M&Ms!!!

  252. Kate K
    Kate K says:

    I’m confused about the prizes. I have 50 eggs (so far), does that mean I get to select one prize from each category (one from the 10 egg category, one from the 25 egg category, AND one from the 50 egg category) or just one prize total?

    This is my first year and I’m sleep deprived so please pardon my confusion!!

  256. Steve
    Steve says:

    KWB, that’s right. There are no eggs under the Fresh Picks section or The Garden sections (you’ll see a yellow banner at the top of the screen when you’re in these sections as a reminder).

    Kate K, you get to pick one prize from each level! Just make sure to place your order by midnight on Apr 24.

    I think I’m pretty much stumped now. Cleaned out every single section and can’t find any more overlooked areas. Painful to think I might’ve missed an egg through those thousands of pages. I just wanted to find that rotten gold egg so I could win *something* because I have no luck with raffles :p

    S Marlow says:

    Wow, I, by chance, made a discovery. Wish I had noticed days ago. I thought I was being thorough, but now I wonder how many eggs I’ve missed. Shall have to revisit some spots later. I need 4 more to hit my next goal.

    QUESTION…
    I know there are no eggs in the garden or fresh picks, but what about the Design Gallery? The “don’t look here” message isn’t posted there. That’s an awful lot of designs to search.

  299. Kate K
    Kate K says:

    This is NOT fun anymore.

    I found 60 eggs in the past couple of days. I just spent FIVE HOURS tonight and found ONE egg. I’m starting to lose my mind. All I want is to get to 75. I’m not aiming to win, just to get the prize at 75.

    *sigh*

    Those last 14 eggs could take me a week at the rate I’m going!

    Kate K says:

    @Kevin

    Someone mentioned earlier that they couldn’t get onto the August & November 2009 blog posts due to a ‘broken’ link; I’m also unable to get onto them.

  301. Kate K
    Kate K says:

    @Kevin

    I retract that last post. Now they’re working but a few other archive pages either have no posts or aren’t working. For example Feb & March of this year have a blank blog page with “Not Found” and a search box. Are they supposed to be like that??

    Same with August & May 2010

    Melissa S says:

    I didn’t get to search much this weekend. Sorry I missed out on the third golden egg. Now that they are all found and do not count towards the 100… can we know where they were hidden? I found two but I’m dying to know where the third was!! :) And I’m hoping to get to 75 so I can get the last prize…

    Kate K – I think the “Not Found” is when there was no blog post that month. It happens! :)

    I have dear Qwest. And of cource they carge me for dsl but can’t delivery, but they arn’t sorry about it. – ha ha I’m going to a satilite company in the middle of may and I will have real dsl service, streaming videos and everything. then I can cut back on my Qwest bill. Give bad service and your customers go elswhere. But it won’t be in time for good egg hunting.

    I’m stuck at 52. I really want the ammonite pendant. It makes me drool. I’ve only started the gemstones in the last couple of hours, but I haven’t found any there yet and it’s getting really frustrating. Here’s a weird thing…my daughter can’t see the eggs on her computer. She can bring her laptop side-by side with mine and hers don’t show up. I don’t know if it’s a security thing or what!

    and then i keep clicking on the ones in the banner about the contest, which are not real eggs.
    maybe they will tell us how small the smallest egg is.

    Hi all, there have been some questions lately about the Design Galley. The only 2 sections of the site that are off-limits are Fresh Picks and The Garden. You’ll see a message at the top of the screen when you’re in one of those 2 sections, so you know not to hunt in there :)

    As for hints: I think these are general enough that they don’t break the rules…

    Yes – I will testify that I have found eggs in the Design Gallery. I calculate that I will have to make approximately 34,492 clicks to search all the corners of the Design Gallery!

    Click anything you can click… Unless a link takes you off the Lima Beads web site – it is fair game. If you can click it, you should click it and you may find an egg there…

    Fun stats for Tuesday:

My cat was laying next to my chair with a look that said, “Aren’t you forgetting something?” That is when I realized that it was 45 minutes past her dinner time.

    Don’t know if it’s just me or what but all the eggs have disappeared– no really even the ones that I have already found ,check it out for yourself before you spend time looking for more eggs like I was doing when I went to a page that I knew had a couple of eggs on it but they weren’t there so I started checking. Something is wrong with the site. Hope they get it fixed soon

    Hmm, Green Orchid, I don’t see that. There is a case or two where you can access the same products from two different links where only one of the pages will show eggs. Even the “obvious” spots don’t show for you?

  385. Green Orchid
    Green Orchid says:

    I hope no one else is having the problem that I am suddenly having. i just checked about 12 places where I know there are eggs and they are not showing up.This page at the bottom says done but with errors on page.If anyone can help Please! I’ve already emailed Lima Beads. Right now I’m going to bed since I cannot look anymore for beads.Hopefully it will be fixed in the morning.

    beaded banana says:

    green orchid- i haven’t had that problem. i have noticed an egg or two i could swear i clicked on yesterday that was apparently ‘new’. someone said something about it depends what link you click on to get somewhere… do i really need to click on every every possible link? i feel like i’m so focused on finding eggs that i’m getting distracted from looking at the items.

    You might have loaded some other page that’s causing issues. The easiest thing is to close your browser completely and restart it. Just try not to clear your cache or browsing history, or all those purple links will turn blue again, and you’ll lose where you’ve been!

    We’re begging for clues from the site masters… b/c if they give them, they don’t count against us. :) The little addicts that we are… after 4 days, have only found 1 more egg to get me to 54. Craziness!!

    Next year I’m doing 3 things…
    1. Searching all from the same PC so my links are marked.
    2. Keeping a stinkin’ spreadsheet of everything I’ve checked!
    3. Saving up like $100 plus beforehand so I can go crazy buying up all the goodies I find!! :)
    I’ve looked through so many places and am still shocked that I have 46 more eggs to find! Plus the last gold one!!

  391. Steve
    Steve says:

    Just a reminder to everyone that sharing egg locations isn’t fair! :) Also, we’ll check out Green Orchid’s comment to make sure eggs aren’t disappearing (they look OK on our end, but we appreciate the heads-up and we’ll check into it!)

  392. Steve
    Steve says:

    Also, I wanted to clarify the question from beaded banana above. While it’s true that sometimes eggs are tricky to find and may not show up exactly where you’d expect, it is not designed to make you click on every single possible combination of links. That would be too unfair :)

    Is there any way we could get a golden egg added to the count? I’ve got 74. It’s getting physically painful (ruptured discs in neck).

    Laura Z aka Veggie Chick says:

    I agree with NY Bella. I’m at 68 and I just want to get 75. It took me all day yesterday to find one egg. I am so tired and frustrated. I keep telling myself that I am going to quit, yet I keep trudging on. I’m sorry for complaining. No one is forcing me to do this. It is supposed to be for fun only, but I think at a certain point, it gets to be an obsession. My OCD is off the charts right now. For some reason, it seems harder this year. But, don’t get me wrong, I’m loving it, and I would miss it if it ever ended. Thanks (I think), LB !!!

    Laura Z – I know what you mean. I can’t stop!! I know I should but after 4 days, I found 2 eggs today! EEk!

    I’m even seeing eggs in my Outlook… I think Lima is going ot have to make special egg beads for us for next year… to really mess with our heads! :) Maybe special gold ones that say “I found the gold egg!” LOL I could see us all snatching them up to make special necklaces and bracelets.

I had not turned off my computer for 2 days because I was afraid the blue words would turn purple,that had already happened twice whwn my computer shut down on it’s own. Diamondustshoe,thanks for your comments.Just as I started to post this and the words were still purple and I had eggs, my computer shut down again and I lost all the purple words again but at least I had written some of it down and when I logged on I found a egg almost immediately Yeah!!!

    No problem, Green Orchid. If you find that in your browser settings you have it set to delete/clear your history when closing the program, you might want to uncheck that. That way, even if the machine turns off, it won’t lose your progress. Writing it down is awesome though, and in some areas I wish I had. :)

    Hi Lynn Eileen Chicky Lee – Almost all the eggs are the same size and similar designs. I found one egg that was about twice as big as the normal eggs. It did not count as two eggs unfortunately.

    The two golden eggs I found really blended into the page. I am sure I looked at one location three times before I realized it was a golden egg.

  417. J BAUER
    J BAUER says:

    Can anyone tell me- does it matter if you click on the pic of the bead or the name of the bead? Clicking on either gets you to the same place. Or won’t a hidden egg show, if you click on only one spot?

    Does it matter whether I have pop-up blocking? Will that prevent eggs from showing up?

    Melissa S says:

    Fenya – I don’t know if it will effect you finding eggs, but it’s easy to turn off pop-up blocker for just Lima. If the message pops up at the top of the internet page stating pop-up blocker is on, you should be able to click on that banner and tell it to turn off just for this site. But I really don’t know if that will stop any eggs… better safe than sorry, right?

    Lima Team – I have a question and I don’t know if you’ll answer it or not… are there any eggs hidden in the ‘out of stock’ items? Because the product pages don’t like out of stock items.

  446. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Matt and I were studying some data today and we realized that a few of the eggs we thought would be easy aren’t being found very often. It’s a good idea to scroll all the way down a page, you never know what you might miss…

    ps, every cloud has a silver lining.

    I must add. I have been scrolling down to the bottom of each page (Thank you for that lil fact Kevin:) however what I didn’t do is hit the “size chart” on every single Gazillion item on Lima Beads. So I can’t wait to find out at the end how many I missed in that department??? UGH!!

    this is much harder than last year (maybe because You have added so much new inventory?) Last year I was on the leader board almost the whole time but this year I can’t seem to get past 52.

    I’m at 72. Just 3 more to go to 75 and then I’m happy to stop, but I’ve been looking for days now and only found maybe 1 egg per day, despite clicking on every single product page I can click on, every link that’s still blue instead of purple. Just three more…where on Earth can they be where I haven’t already clicked? Hmm…

  489. No Photo
    Fenya says:

    In regards to the hints – It just does not seem fair to give hints out when someone has already found that egg. That puts them up at the top of the leaderboard. And good for them for finding it! Maybe hints should only be given if the egg has not been found by anyone.

  490. No Photo
    Melissa S says:

    Fenya – I think all the eggs have been found at least once by now. (I’d have to scroll up and check the stats they’ve posted.) And from the sounds of the hint, they are trying to point us to eggs that have been found only a ‘few’ times though they are in ‘obvious’ spots. I think it’s as fair as they can make it. :)

    I’ve been going with the philosophy of ‘click EVERYTHING’ and it’s helped!! (Though I sometimes forget where I’ve clicked… despite my notes!)

    I have found 11 today for a total of 46 eggs. I’m starting to nod off so I think that I will have to call off the search until later today after i have had some sleep. Happy Easter everyone!

    Px3 aka Peggy says:

    Can’t believe I found 73! This was my first egg hunt, and it was not only a lot of fun, I learned a lot about gemstones. The descriptions you give are great! And your measurements link is the best I have ever seen. Lima Beads will be my first choice for stones from now on.

  501. L McGinnis
    L McGinnis says:

    Okay, time is running out:(, all of you are so much fun, Lima Beads must think of more of these treasure hunts, ooo did I really say that? Especially after Jacquie H lil poem up above. That is so true :) I am stuck at 61 and thinking I have tried everything, but obviously I haven’t , UGH!!! here I go, we will see. hope hope and LOT’s of hope

  502. L McGinnis
    L McGinnis says:

    I am so disappointed in my eyes tonight, I can’t keep them open , the eggs are burrowing in and hiding extremely well. I think they are going to win this battle of being found and just not be found. LOL Sad
    Happy hunting the rest of you that are looking this evening.

    The egg hunt this year is hard but fun. I still need to find one egg to reach my goal of 50 eggs, and I’m struggling to find it. I sure could use a hint right now :) .

    B Miller says:

    So glad that this contest is only once a year! Am supposed to be baking Easter goodies – I find myself bringing the mixing bowls over to my computer to search for the elusive last 4 eggs that will get me to 75!!! Insanity has definitely set in!

    Yea!!Found my 50, thank goodness, I have to go to work today…Go Marlins.. and this was really fun, my house is a mess, my son went off to bootcamp (coastguard) with a mom wavying from her computer and a husband who I think is still here, somewhere??? The dogs lost a few pounds…and I need to go buy some eggs for Easter, but I found 50 and two gold ones,they didn’t count, but were very pretty!! Happy Easter!!

    Laura Z aka Veggie Chick says:

    I think I’m done. I’m at 70 and I don’t know where else to look. I’m just hoping that I stay on the leader board to get a chance at the $100 prize. I’m having a houseful tomorrow, so I have to get busy with that. I might still look when I can steal a minute today and tomorrow. Tomorrow night I’ll place my final order and Monday I plan on just sitting and staring at the wall all day (LOL). Happy Easter, everyone!!!

    D McCaskill says:

    oh come on people! Somebody needs to drop another hint!! I just need 9 more to get my 75!! I haven’t even seen any of these gold eggs people are talking about… The only thing I have left is to just start clicking on beads and pulling up bigger pictures, size charts… :(

    I came back to look for a couple of hours and only found 1. Up to 54. My theory is that there will be more put on the site tomorrow when everyone is busy. I have been looking deep into the size charts and ,bigger photos ect. Where are the rest??????

  528. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OK, here’s the thing…..

    1. Contrary to my earlier posting this AM, I did NOT have scrambled eggs for breakfast. Maybe on Monday. ;) If I can bring myself to look at any kind of egg after midnight on Sunday…….LOL

    2. I thought I was content once I reached 50 eggs, then I accidentally (honest!) found a couple more. My OCD-edness kicked into overdrive and now I’m at 75. Yikes — What to do? Stop or continue? My “mouse hand” and “scrolling finger” are soooooo tired……so are my eyes and my back! 8O

    3. I have serious doubts about having a giant-sized revelation as to the location of the remaining 25, so I think this might be the end of the Infamous Easter Egg Hunt of 2011 for me! :D 8O :D

    Happy Easter to all and to all a good night! Oops, wrong holiday…..LOL ;)

  529. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Brooke H — According to the rules listed above, the contest ends at 11:59 PM on April 24, 2011 (Easter Sunday). In the past, LB has gone by their time zone, which is the time posted here when you leave a comment. Hope that helps everyone! :D

    Brooke H, LB also states above that any prizes (except the discount code) must be ordered by then and that normal shipping rates apply. They are listed when you check out.

  536. L hembree
    L hembree says:

    @brooke h
    yes shiping rates apply you can go to your cart and click estimate shipping and it was 4.95 if your under 40.00 and that is if you want 2-3 day shipping it like 40.00 if you want next day shipping

    Thanks for the fun of the Easter Egg Hunt, Lima Beads Team !!!! As usual it was fun and challenging !!!!
    I didn’t have as much time to search as last year, and I have to be content with my 62….. tomorrow is such a busy day… between church, Easter Egg Hunt and party, then dinner with friends, not time for hunting for eggs here…
    Good luck to you all… hope someone finds them all !!!!
    There is still time for some of you !!!! I must say Goodnight… and Happy Easter to all of my friends on Lima Beads !!!!!!

    Heather A says:

    Two things:
    1. The silver lining hint- I clicked every stupid silver lining bead, no egg. That sucks.

    2. You say ‘we’re not that mean’. My carpal tunnel is acting up, I gave myself a migraine, and I’m literally searching for eggs in real life to click. AND I only have 66. Oh and I’ve been neglecting potential cancer-curing scientific research to look for eggs. PSSSSHHHHH You guys are totally the parents that grew up from kids that never found any eggs during Easter.

    Needless to say, I’m over it, good luck everyone else!

    djdesigns says:

    Heather A. Loved the comments, I too looked in the silver lining bead.. no egg. I hope you recoup enough to continue your research we need to cure cancer.If I could give you my eggs I would anyone that works hard in researching a disease needs something great! Good Luck!

    Didn’t get a chance to look all day… but hopefully I’ll have time tomorrow. WAnt to get to 75. I’ve been wanting to try epoxying. :)

    But seeing as it’s a holiday AND outside normal business hours, I’m betting we’re not getting any more hints. *sigh* Oh well. Those hints helped me find a few more eggs as I search through everything!!!

  548. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OK, OK, I know I said I was done for this year…..LOL…..Then I found #76! 8O

    Heather A — The silver lining clue is genuine — You just have to look in the right area to find it. Good luck! :)

  549. P Lepper
    P Lepper says:

    OK, not growling right now…too tired… 3 something AM and I still have to get some sleep, clean the kitchen, get deviled eggs and (don’t laugh, I do!) dessert to sisters for dinner at 4pm – she is an hour away…. and place order before 121:59 tonight. The good news? Up to 52 eggs and added the chrysoprase beads. Still looking for my silver lining though…. the cost of my sanity??? PRRRRRICELESSSSSSS
    Enjoy your friends and family! :)

    Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!This is the third Egg Hunt for me, and I really look forward to the insanity of egg-hunting, but I wish I didn’t have carpal tunnel syndrome right now! All the repetitive clicking is killing me – and from some of the comments I’ve seen, I’m not the only one. Has anyone else noticed that looking at all the pictures slows down your computer until you have to reboot? Or is that just me?

    Please try not to take this too seriously if you are new to the hunt. Trust me–it is not worth it. This is my third year and I have learned a few things about that along the way. It is meant to be fun as you look at the new items on the site and enjoy the prizes you do get.

    Bonnie R says:

    Well guys – while eating breakfast I found my last 5 eggs. I made my goal of 50 so I’m cashing out for this egg hunt. I swear that every cabochon looked like an egg. And for the third year I wanted to click on every fluorite (and every other striped gemstone) in the place. I did find one of the golden eggs, at least it did add into my egg count.
    Have fun guys.

    I was in the middle of looking for easter eggs when I clicked my 19th (just started this morning) when it said the hunt has ended. I thought it lasted until midnight?

    Hey, Guys! The rules DID say 11:59pm, which would be one minute before midnight, but all eggs vanished at noon! What’s up? How about a consolation prize for those of us who thought we still had the rest of the day to hunt?!!

  571. tigerlily
    tigerlily says:

    Well, I’m glad it wasn’t just me! I was only reminded this was going on this morning, and I was SO close to 25. I had planned to at least make it to there and see if I got anything, and try to order something tonight before 11:59. I saw some very interesting beads while searching. Was sad it was over for me 12 hours early. I was only an hour into it!

    The site no longer has the eggs, it logged me out while I was on the site (weird), and won’t let me delete anything from my shopping bag!!! I need to delete some items before I can place my order before midnight tonight!!! Please help us!!!

    Two other oddities — the items keep changing in my cart and the amount jumps up and down by a couple of hundred dollars every time I try to delete an item — believe me, I don’t have THAT much in there….. 8O

    I know this is Easter and no one is here…..

    I think it is very mean of the computer at Lima Beads to do something like this to the awesome LB staff. Maybe we should hire a bus to Ann Arbor and have a firm talk with it. I have complete faith that Steve and Kevin will straighten this out as soon as they can and make it right. :)

  582. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Hi everyone! The hunt was definitely not supposed to end until midnight tonight. I’m so sorry! Something has gone wrong and we’re working on it. We’ll extend the hunt a bit tonight if we can to make up for it. We’ll post progress here.

  583. black cat yawning

    Yeah, you’re right CB Birdsong. Didn’t mean to sound like a poor sport…although a poor sport would never have stuck it out this long!

    Kevin says:

    OK everyone, the hunt is fixed. Someone got their AMs and PMs mixed up!

    The eggs are all back on the site and everything is back to normal.

    We’re extending the hunt until 2am eastern time to make up for the time that the hunt was unavailable.

    Happy Easter and again, our apologies.

    Steve, sorry you had to go through this, but we trust you will get it fixed for us.

    Oh well, I didn’t want to sleep tonight anyway.

    L Thompson says:

    Hi everyone, I don’t post much, but had to now. I to am very sad. I have been above the “yellow line” before and have fallen below again. I new that I would be able to get a few more to get me over that line again before the end of the hunt. I freaked went I went to see where I stood this morning. I rushed to my cart and it said that I still had 14 hours to purchase before my free items from the hunt would be gone. I quickly placed my order, which was my intent this morning anyway, and it looks like everything is ok. I was going to search on and off all day, having 14 hours is not much time but could be an eternity for only 1 more egg. Well, I will check back later this afternoon to see what is going on..
    Everyone, relax and enjoy Easter with your families. Maybe it won’t rain here and we can hide some eggs outside for the grandkids. That would make the day great. Having the family over for a simple dinner just so we are all together before my dad goes in for surgery on Wed. Enjoy all those EGGS everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!

  587. Cat Bird Birdsong
    Cat Bird Birdsong says:

    Kevin-thank you so much. You and the LB team are the best. Might get to 75 after all!

    Steve, thanks for the speed of light reaction on a holiday, no less. You Lima Beads people rock! Thanks for the incredibly hard work you all put into these promotions.

    Yay! I finally found my 75th egg and I’m done! Really wanted the amethyst slice or ammonite, but I’ve been wanting to try making some resin jewelry so I decided on the epoxy just to give it a try before I buy a larger amount. The egg hunt was fun, though I think I wore out my clicking finger and may dream about eggs for the next week. :)

    I am having a problem with my coupon code for 15% off gemstones. It is only giving me 10% off instead if 15% and all of the items in my bag are gemstones. I emailed lima yesterday, but I need to buy them by tonight or I don’t get my disount or free gifts! ahhh, help please

    I thought the coupons were good for a while… just the freebies haves to be ordered by midnight…

  599. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Eeka is right — The coupons are good until Dec. 31 of this year; the prizes have to be “purchased” by the new deadline of 2 AM. :)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Antique to Chic – I’d place the order tonight if you have other prizes in it that need to be ordered by tonight. Then call LB in the morning to adjust the invoice.
    Or else, as Eeka Mouse mentioned, you don’t have to use the coupon today. It’s good till the end of the year.

  601. Antique to Chic
    Antique to Chic says:

    Thank you everyone for the responses! I think I’ll order tonight no matter what since I have my prizes to order and some items from the bead machine. I’ll see if I can get them to adjust it tomorrow like Gem Chick suggested.

    I’ve had it, I quit, I’ve spent 4 days at least 8 hrs a day and only made it up to 55 eggs. I’ve looked in every catagory every different way I could,except the ones excluded, I’ve even tried the blogs going back for 6 months and looked in several different design areas, I did find all three golden eggs, but long after they were found. I just burnt out. If the rest are in the blogs and designs, that is a very stupid place to put them as there has to be at least 2 – 3 thousand pages to look through. Wanted to make it to 75 but I’m totally burnt out.

    kcdesigns AKA sporty says:

    well I lost my place on the top ten cause I went away for the weekend to see my brother who is leaving for IRAQ in the morning…But some things are more important than finding eggs…Good luck to everyone in the drawings. It was fun!

  604. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Lady Kara, there definitely aren’t that many eggs in the blog and designs sections. 55 isn’t too shabby. You beat the average – thanks for hunting!

    Sporty, more important indeed. That’s awesome that you got to see him before he left.

    Also, what everyone is saying above is accurate. The coupons are good until the end of the year, but the other prizes you’ve won need to be claimed by the end of the Easter Egg Hunt which is now 2am tonight…. About 5 hours from now.

    Steve says:

    Hi everyone, keep in mind that we’re in the Eastern time zone here in Michigan, so for those of you on the West coast, place your orders by 11pm your time to get your free gifts.

    beaded banana says:

    I placed my order yesterday and had my free gift for the 10 eggs and the one for the 50 eggs. for that one i picked the coral.
    today i’m looking at the prize section again to debate the coupon code, and in the 10 egg prize section it says i have already ordered. but in the 50, it says to pick one and order today. the coral is no longer listed, just the 3 other options.

    anyone else have this happen?
    does this mean something was wrong with my order?
    i tried clicking on another 50 prize to see if it was an error but it went into my cart and showed up free.

  607. D McCaskill
    D McCaskill says:

    umm do I need to worry that one of my prizes now says it is out of stock?? :( ..and I still need 8 more to get to 75!!! AAHHHH!!!

  608. Steve
    Steve says:

    Antique to Chic, I just sent you an e-mail about your discount. I think it should explain things. If you have any questions, let us know!

    I have the same question as D McCaskill ~ My prize choice, says sold out!!

    What are we supposed to do??

  610. D McCaskill
    D McCaskill says:

    oh no!! I took it out of my shopping bag and it is not listed on the prize page!!

  611. beaded banana
    beaded banana says:

    just when i’d given up i found another egg! but there’s no way i’m gonna find 20 more in the next couple of hours. my brain is fried from the search. i can’t keep clicking anymore. unless it’s on deals from the bead machine. ;-) now that’s something i could watch alllll day.

  612. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Steve is working on the prize stuff right now. We have more of the angel skin pink coral. It will be back on the prize page shortly. For the other out of stock items, we’ll be offering something comparable. Steve will post an update soon.

    Steve says:

    Hello again hunters! The angel skin pink coral is back on the prize page… if it’s still telling you it’s out of stock in your shopping bag, just remove it from your shopping bag, go back to the hunt prizes, and pick it again. We’ve added a mosaic abalone round to the prize page as well.

    Remember to place you orders by 2am Eastern when the egg hunt ends! Good luck with the last couple hours!

  616. beaded banana
    beaded banana says:

    what about the issue with prizes being available after they’ve already been ordered? surely we don’t get to pick two items from the ‘find 50 eggs’ category…

  617. Steve
    Steve says:

    beaded banana, that’s correct. You may choose only one prize from the $50 section. I see that you placed your order yesterday, and there should be no problem with your prizes :)

    Oh No, I wished I’d known that you had fixed the AM PM thing. I was hunting for eggs at 8:30 this morning on the the West Coast and quit when it sad contest was over. Now I find out I could have been “hunting” all day.
    So Sad :(

  619. beaded banana
    beaded banana says:

    steve-there wasn’t, but today when i looked at the prizes again it said to when i passed by the ’50′ section it didn’t say i’d ordered already like it did under the ’10′. i thought it was an error, but to check i selected one and put it in my cart and the price showed up as 0. i wasn’t sure if that meant i had a problem with the item i selected yesterday or if it was a bug. or if i was just lucky and got two prizes. ;-)

LOL I just placed my order and I’m sad I missed out on the beautiful Mosaic Abalone Donut :( Good luck to everyone!! I have to say that I LOVE the Egg Hunt, even though I’m cross-eyed!!

    D McCaskill says:

    I GIVE up!!! I’m exhausted so I have placed my order and I’m going to bed!! I got 3 more eggs than last year but was 8 away from 75 so I didn’t get the prize I was really excited about :( …I also ended up missing out on the abalone donut which makes me even sadder! I had a great time though and will definitely do it again next year!!:) I really hope everyone had a great easter and I hope maybe they will tell us where some of the eggs were hiding!! I don’t know what else I could have clicked on..

  625. D Gooding
    D Gooding says:

    I thought the contest was over this morning so I quit looking …LOL. Now I see it isn’t and by clicking around randomly I found 2 more. This has been tons of fun!! I have enjoyed myself tremendously. I am adding this site to my favorites and I will be shopping here.

    After reading some of the posts I’m glad I didn’t take this hunt as seriously as I did in years past! ;) Just found my last egg tonight – I’ve been looking at it the whole time & didn’t realize it was an egg that counted! I only got to 59, but I’m not sad at all. Got some great prizes and got reacquainted with all the goodies on the site! Thanks Lima team – you’re awesome! And congrats to everyone who hit their goal! Happy Easter everyone! :D

    It’s been fun,but crazy and I am quitting. I have 78 eggs and am 35 on the leader board.I don’t know how anyone could have clicked on everything.I spent all day just on Findings and Clasps and found a few surprises few and far between. I have been clicking for hours and hours everyday since it started and I did do the Design Gallery. However I will not be ordering my prizes. The prize page only accepts 73 of my 78 eggs so I couldn’t even pick out my 3rd prize.Since I am not ordering anything else I don’t want to pay the $5 shipping charge. That’s Ok I mainly played for the fun of it and because someday maybe I would like to try making jewelry. I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful jewelry and designs.Thanks to all of the Lima Bead Staff

    Just wanted to say what a blast I had with your Easter Egg Hunt! I found 66 eggs and 2 of the golden ones and for my first time, I was pretty happy with that. I had fun looking even though it drove me crazy!! lol
    Placed my order the other day, got my goodies and of course, I had to order extra stuff, and it’s all wonderful. You guys are marketing geniuses. Bravo!

    I just wanted to write and thank you guys (Kevin and Steve) for responding so quickly to reports of the easter eggs vanishing from the site – sure sounds stressful, I am glad I didn’t encounter that problem, but very happy to see that you also extended the contest by a coupple of hours, whoo hoo – I’m really tired, after finding a few more tonight! 8O 8O 8O

    thanks so much to all the folks at Lima Beads for a wonderful egg hunt. I do hope you’ll let us know where all the eggs were after the hunt is done.

    I just wanted to thank you guys for a wonderful hunt. It was really hard this year, your website has gotten so big! But I got to 75 although I never thought I would come pas 60 or so, so I’m really happy. Can’t wait to see my order. Promise me you’ll organise another hunt next year?

  637. Janz Joolz
    Janz Joolz says:

    I found 72, even though I promised myself I’d stop at 50 and be happy with my prizes. But the little stinkers kept popping up! Never did have time to find the 3 more I needed for the next prize level, though. But that’s fine – I received my order including my free beads and I love ‘em! Just to help egg hunters make an educated decision, I’d like to see LB post the precise number of pages that eggs could possibly be hiding on. That brings some sense of reality to the odds of finding a substantial number if they’re well hidden amongst thousands of pages.

  638. beadofparadise
    beadofparadise says:

    what a fun event LB! My goal was 50…and reached it and placed my order, and then POOF! found another one…. guess I settled too low this time. Can’t wait til next time! Thank you again LB!

    This was my first EEH and I had a ball. I learned a lot about gemstones (who knew Peru and Quebec have the same rocks?) and filled up my wish list. I really got sidetracked when I was searching through the design gallery, there are so many talented Lima Beaders!!
    I feel connected to the rest of the egg hunters out there; thanks to LB for doing such a great job.
    Already planning for next year, but before that I will be ordering lots from Lima Beads – you Rock (pun intended)

    To all the “rookies” this year — Sure hope you had a great time and will stay here with us for more fun and friendship year round! :D LB is the best site I’ve found — exceptional selection, quality, & prices, plus the most outstanding customer service you’ll ever find!!! :D

    I also see eggs everywhere — even when I close my eyes! 8O

    Hubby is happy to have me back in his life again! Now it’s time to catch up on the laundry, cleaning, and cooking! LOL ;)

    Thanks again, LB, for a fun hunt and great prizes! :D

    I’ve been checking out the LB site for awhile now but never ordered… then Friday I stumbled across the Easter Egg Hunt and couldn’t stop! Hoped for 75 but ended at 55. Couldn’t resist ordering while I was at it. I’m hooked!

  642. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Forgot to mention that I can’t wait to learn who the winners are, where the eggs where, and also the location of the elusive golden eggs! I found 2 of them and would love to know which one was the best hidden! 8)

    Also, congrats to Jill and Elaine (our past winners) for doing such an amazing job again this year!!! :D

    I am new to the site, use beading as therapy due to stroke and had SO much fun doing the easter egg hunt. Unfortunately I had a family emergency and was not able to order the free gifts. But I will be making an oreder in the near future. Great site LB! I love it. Congrats to all of you!

    I’ve enjoyed the egg hunt (but forgot how much my arm hurts or that about half way through I want to smash that little waving lima bean at the bottom of every page). This year I had to quit early–life sometimes has other plans for egg hunters. I had set a goal to get at least 75 eggs,—I came close and had a blast! Thanks Lima for the fun and great prizes!!!

  646. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Alice P — I agree with you regarding our little mascot, the happy lima bead — unfortunately, I think he actually gave me the finger the other day!!! Of course, it WAS late at night and perhaps my eyes were a bit tired……LOL…..I am pretty sure he was laughing at me, though!!! 8O

  647. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I had a wonderful time….even though I can hardly see anymore!! I am really looking froward to finding out where those last darned eggs were, those golden ones especially.. only found one of them. I may be in the top ten but I know I can’t win again….that wouldn’t be very fair. My goal was to find them all but ran out of patience. I look forward to finding out who the winner is! Lima Team, I love the idea you came up with for hiding those golden eggs…thanks for another memorable hunt!! :-D

  648. Alice P
    Alice P says:

    Lynn, come to think of it, that little guy may have given me the finger a time or two (or maybe it was the other way around, I really dont’ remember for sure). Thanks for the laugh!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Pacing, pacing, pacing…….waiting to find out the results and the locations of the eggs……LB, you’ve been open for almost half an hour — whatcha doin’ right now??? LOL ;)

    BadCat says:

    Morning all…I quit last night after I found 82 eggs I really wanted to be in the top 10, but just couldn’t do it. I never found the third gold egg and am eager to see where it was placed….along with the other 18 eggs I never found.

  654. S Marlow
    S Marlow says:

    Crazy egg hunt. BadCat, you beat me by one. I too wanted to be in the top 10. I was there one day, but lost it by morning. Never saw that position again. I might have found 1 golden egg, but that would have been the first day, and never saw it again (or found another). I’m curious where they were, and how many eggs were located in designs. Also wonder how many people participated in the egg hunt.

    So, LB… where’d you hide the eggs? I’m sure I’ll be kicking myself when I find out – but I especially want to know where that 3rd gold egg (the one found by Cindy V) was hidden!!! Great fun – my husband is thrilled that the contest is finally over and I can get back to real life now!

  658. B Miller
    B Miller says:

    BTW – for anyone suffering “disappearing egg syndrome” – I had the same experience on occasion, until I realized that I wasn’t letting the pages fully load – when I reloaded them, the missing eggs reappeared! It may have been a momentary issue with the server traffic at the time I clicked – it wasn’t slow enough to really notice, until I looked at the status (Done or blank) in the lower left corner of my internet window.

I placed a small order with my winnings but will for sure be placing a bigger order in the near future. Thanks To the Team for an awesome hunt!! and Thanks for great prizes.

    Happily Retired says:

    Good a.m. everyone and LB…will you produce a list of where the eggs were? I thought that the words “silver lining” were a hint and I looked at every single silver lined bead along with every single click that I could on those beads and came up with NOTHING!!!!!!! Made it to 59, that’s better than nothing.

    Hi All!

    Thanks so much for all of your kind words — we had a lot of fun with the hunt this year… Except for that “ending 12 hours early” thing :)

    We’ve got all the names ready for the drawings and will be choosing the two winners this afternoon. We’ll most likely announce them tomorrow.

    The first (easiest) golden egg was on this page, under Cathy’s finger in step 6:

    Dot J says:

    Hi Kevin,

    I respectively disagree – the easiest golden egg was two clicks away from the home page – click the shopping bag, then click the estimate shipping link. There it was – hiding behind the bead box…

    It would be nice to still have the eggs on the site, for a few days, so we can wee what we missed. Maybe next year? If the only glitch this year was someone getting their am & pm screwed up – that sounds much better easier to fix than trying to deal with crashing servers… Maybe the contest should have ended at 12:01 am on April 26th? I am forever getting my am’s & pm’s mixed up, so I call it “noon” or “midnight.” Guess the computer can’t handle that…

    Well, I’ll be!!! I never thought to look on the shipping estimate page for an egg!! And I thought I’d left no bead unturned!! :-D

  672. BadCat
    BadCat says:

    The Golden Easter Egg I found first was the one Kevin mentioned. Kevin, are you classifying “easiest found” via how many people found that particular egg. I admit, I smacked my head when I found the one under “Estimated Shipping”.

  673. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Well, I guess it’s no secret now.. The second golden egg was, as Dot J said above, on the estimate shipping popup. You get to this from the shopping bag.

  674. BadCat
    BadCat says:

    ooh yeah…can we share hints now? The silver lining one was tricky, but I found it. It was the last egg I found, I think.

  675. L Thompson
    L Thompson says:

    Thanks for a great time, Lima Beads. Was only in competition with myself to find them all, or at least to be in the top ten. Got dsl for this year. Was a lot faster. Next year, I forsee a whole room full of computer monitors, at least 6, and the ability to talk and move around the site and never have to touch a mouse and click. Great dream huh!!!! Better than all of those egg dreams.
    Have fun with all of your orders and free items everyone. Can’t wait to see what you make.

  676. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Hi Everyone. Regarding hints, we usually don’t publish the locations of ALL the eggs. We can’t give away all of our secrets!

    When we post the results of the drawing, we’ll share the locations of some of the more interesting eggs and the last golden egg. We’ll also include some fun stats.

    We’re working as fast as we can, but shipping out all of these prizes is going to kill us I think. If you don’t hear from us by the end of tomorrow, call for help!

    Well, I got 58 which is more than I expected and still had fun. Unsually, I don’t get time to read the comments but I did this year and many were extremely funny. I always knew that bead addicts had a sense of humor and now I have proof!
    Thanks again LB for a great easter egg hunt. You are doing it next year–right? We should be recovered by then.

    Kevin: I am not certain where “this page” is you were refering to in the following quote you made earlier: “The first (easiest) golden egg was on this page, under Cathy’s finger in step 6:
    http://www.limabeads.com/store…..ingProject” I am looking over my screen, trying to find Cathy and the step 6 you mention. Can’t figure out where that page is. Silly me.

  682. Janz Joolz
    Janz Joolz says:

    S Marlow: Click on Cabochons in the Beads and Supplies list. At the bottom of the page is a link to In the Studio. Step 6 shows Cathy’s finger pressing on a cabochon. In that photo, the cabochon was a golden egg! My weary, bleary eyes had to stare at it for about a minute before I was convinced that I was seeing what I thought I was seeing! :D

    Great comments, everyone!! Can’t believe I missed the shipping golden egg! Tricky! Towards the end, I was looking so fast I am sure I missed some that were right in front of me! Or I can blame AquaKitty! I stopped scrolling down because, like Alice P, I got tired of having the Lima guy wave at me. I made an easter egg out of him (pic posted on my Easter Celebration 2011 Fresh Pick) and he came out looking a little angry… ha ha subconsciously projecting on my part!

    Lynn, you crack me up!! You are a walking (blogging) billboard for LB!! I, too, want to say hello to all the newbies! I realize now why I hardly get on…. I can’t get off!!!! Great folks here at Lima Beads, along with wonderful sharing of ideas and friendship! AND beautiful stuff plus great service!!

    Stroke of Luck, I love your screen name. Inspirational.

    Kevin, thanks for letting us know about rationale regarding hidden eggs. I will be back next year, unless my husband secretly deletes the email notification letting me know the Egg Hunt has started . . .

    As far as the crazy 12 hour snafu goes, I have to quote Rosanne Rosannadanna. “It’s always something.” Ever book an airline flight on the wrong day because of it? I have.

    Trinkets, I feel for you and wish you would have made it. I was stuck at 74 for forever and was so afraid I would not make it to 75. Happened to find one in a not so hard place. Then I still couldn’t stop looking. I never found another, but I was happy with 75.

    Now back to my regularly scheduled life….. withdrawals. How many nights will I continue to dream about the eggs I missed?

    Thanks for another fun Egg Hunt, LB folks! I had a competition going with a few other bead/jewelry people I know and I won! I hunted right up till 2 am, drank lots of coffee after a big ham dinner with the in-laws, came home and went right back to hunting eggs. I’ve barely slept for the past few days, so today I slept until 2 pm! My hubby asked me if I was back from egg-hunt vacation – but it sure doesn’t feel like I had a vacation. I’m exhausted! But I really want to know where the 8 eggs I didnt find were.

    To all of you who enjoy my weird sense of humor — thanks! 8) I’m always happy to be a crowd-pleaser! ;)

    Jill, I bet you’re right about AquaKitty — he’s such a trouble maker! LOL

    Cathy — I did find the golden egg you were “holding down” — you have a lovely finger! Did you get a manicure just for that photo shoot? ROTFLOL ;)

    I just want to say that that was fun and hard! It was my first egg hunt on this site. I ended up with 52 eggs and found 2 golden ones. I just wanted to say that I ended up finding an egg on the Fresh Picks section even though it says there were NONE there. What’s up with that? :D

    After sleepless nights, a dirty house and a near divorce I found 75 eggs! :)

    Thanks for another great egg hunt, I enjoyed it again, and thank God my husband is so patient because I was on his computer! ;)

    Fenya says:

    I was going crazy going back to each page and scrolling down to see if I could find an egg! But I did not find one egg! What a frustrating time. Next hunt I am definitely going to keep a documented list of what I looked at, to save me going through the same things over and over again. I will leave no ‘click’ unturned.

  692. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    Keeping a list of some kind is definitely a good idea. The silver lining hint was awesome. I came down with some kind of respiratory thing the last few days, and between my computer and my fever, I wasn’t good for much. I managed to stay in the top ten, though, so I did better than last year. My order was filled with beautiful things AND a Twizzler. :) Everyone here is so nice and helpful; I love this site.

  693. D McCaskill
    D McCaskill says:

    How do you even get to this page where there was one of the eggs? http://www.limabeads.com/store.....ingProject…I’ve never even seen that page!! That makes me wonder how many more pages do they have that I didn’t even get to…

  694. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I kept a list of each location where I found an egg — page, area/section, etc. and it really helped me avoid repetition.

    D McCaskill — Here is how you access that page: On the upper left side of any page under “Beads & Supplies,” click on “Supplies.” On the that page, click on “Adhesives.” On that page, click on “Using Cabs, Settings & Epoxy.” On that page, scroll down to Step 6. During the egg hunt, the little cab & setting had been replaced with a golden egg. Hope this helps you! :D

    Melissa F – was it really a fresh picks page? Or an egg in one of the fresh picks displayed on a product page – I think I saw one or two in that position.

  696. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Dot, I’m with you — the only fresh pick-related egg I found was on the Fresh Daily page in the featured Fresh Pick.

    Wolfkazzy and Diamonddustshoe, I sympathize with you both! I have carpal tunnel syndrome and yeah, my right hand is numb and painful. Hopefully we’ll get over that soon. And on Thursday I got a nasty virus and fever, and I have no idea what I might have missed while I was hunting in bed with the laptop – so I went over all of it again on Saturday night. :) All of us who really get into the Egg Hunt probably need at least a week to recover! I can’t lie, though – if there were two Egg Hunts a year, I’d be ecstatic!

    S Marlow says:

    Janz Joolz-thanks for the clarification. I found that egg. But, I guess I was so excited it was an egg, I didn’t realize it was a golden egg. I never noticed whether my egg count went up or not.

    trinkets says:

    RubberT_____Plucky Chick……Thanks for your sympathy…it was very frustrating to have 74 eggs and not being able to find that last 75th.

    Had lots of fun, hope you did too!

    LYNN, lol, I love the pumpkin hunt idea!!

  705. L McGinnis
    L McGinnis says:

    Oooo Lynn, that was a great thing to do. To keep track of where you found each egg. Next year, that is what I will do. I kept going over & over the same pages just because I didn’t want to stop searching. YIKS!! :) But at the same time I knew I had already gone over that territory already. :D It is sure a ton of fun. Thank you Lima Beads for giving us the opportunity to have such a great time and win free treasures at the same time.
    :D

    Rainbow Fluorite Oval Cabochon 10x14mm. I kept clicking on this picture of the above item because it looked just like an egg. I can’t wait to find out where the 3rd golden egg was?? :D I only found 1 golden egg. I congratulate you all who made the leader board and WOW to the top egg hunters!! CRAZY!! You are awesome!!

  708. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    Karokat, yeah, I was fuzzier than my cat trying to hunt.

    Lynn, I LOVE the idea of a pumpkin hunt. :)

    Trinkets, it was one of those way at the bottom you had to scroll down for like they were telling us. If you put “silver lining” in the search, it will show you the main section it was under. That was the last big section I went through, so I was just clicking too fast to see it the first time.

    L McGinnis, I looked twice at the fluorite, too! 8O And I sure can’t wait either to find out where that pesky third gold egg was! :)

  709. Karokat
    Karokat says:

    Oooh yeah, a pummpkin hunt! Great idea, Lynn!

    And I too am dying to find out where that darned third egg was. I swear I thought I’d been almost everywhere in the website – but maybe I missed a link to a picture in the Design Gallery or the Blog Archives. My eyes were totally blurry when I went through those. (Fuzzier than your cat trying to hunt – that’s funny, Diamonddusshoe! My cats only hunt through the bow window, but they do get fuzzy tails and they make a funny clicking noise – does your cat do that or are mine just weird?)

    I got my order today!! And my Twizzlers… yummy. :) I can’t wait to get home and try a few new things I got some ribbon so we’re going to see what we can do with that!

    Green Orchid says:

    Trinkets, I found a silver lining egg in Seed Beads I was looking through all the ones with silver linings. I think I had clicked on metal linings to get to that page? I got so tired I quit for the night and when I came back the next morning and checked I found I had one more to do a light ruby Kiam Silver lined so I clicked on it and there was my egg. I don’t know if you had to do all of them to find the egg then it wouldn’t matter what order you did it whichever was last would have the egg??

    Fenya says:

    Did anyone find eggs on the design gallery besides what was up in the header? I scrolled down each page and did not find a single one.

    BridgetsRibbits says:

    @Fenya: Yes, but only 2 or 3 and I can’t remember exactly where.

    Fenya says:

    I was wondering if it would have been worth my time to open up each design to have a look for an egg.

  716. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Lynn, Although I think the hunts are fun…once a year is enough for me! I don’t know if I could handle two hunts in one year. I just take too much darn time…unless they would put them in one spot and the first one to get all is the winner or something like that! Maybe they could have little jack-o-lantern pumpkins or pumpkins dressed in costume……….

  717. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    PS…some people must have too much time on their hands to be able to find all the eggs. I sure didn’t. I did manage to use up a few hours looking and finding what I did!

  718. Karokat
    Karokat says:

    Fenya, I did find eggs in two of the designs. I got to it by accident, clicking on a gemstone that was in a Fresh Pick at the bottom of the thing I was looking at. It was one of MommaKat Bubbly Chick’s picks, so then I clicked on her name and went to her designs. I just scrolled down the first page and there was a design called “Lima’s Lovely Shells”. It was very colorful and looked like Easter Eggs, plus the name had “shells” in it. There’s an easier way to get to it – I know because my sister found it by accident another way (we compared notes after the Hunt was over – we were in competition with each other and I won!), but I don’t remember how she got to it.

    The other one was under displays, which I went through one by one because there weren’t that many of them. The egg was sitting on a stool that just looked like an egg should be sitting there.

    My egg hunting technique is to go through all of the top-level “easy stuff” first, then I go through the categories under each main heading, then I drill down into the individual items. I generally keep three or four browsers open so I can switch off from going through the stuff that drives me batty (like Findings) and do something more fun for a while. I really got confused after Thursday’s New Additions because some of the eggs seemed to disappear and all of a sudden there were a lot of new things among the ones I’d already looked at. Maybe next year I’ll try to look at all the individual items first – before the Thursday New Additions confuse me.

  719. No Photo
    Fenya says:

    Karokat,
    Oh yeah! I was trying to decide if I should go through the new additons, while, at the same time telling myself that there would not be any eggs in them. But I looked anyway, and of course, found none. I felt the same way about the findings and the seed beads. I might try the multiple browsers next time too. I just wish that LB would make it so that when you click on the seed beads or Czech glass beads it would turn pink. I lost my place plenty of times because of it.

    Colleen says:

    Looking forward to getting my beads. Actually ended up placing two orders. Wishing I could drive to Ann Arbor and get mine – I’ve got some angel skin pink semi-round pearls coming that I’m anxious for. I love pink. Egg hunt was definitely a blast and I was so excited to get over 75 so I could get the pearl strand prize.

  721. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    Karokat, yes my cats do that clicking thing, and a little dancing, too!

    I do the same thing with hunting in levels, and changing out areas when my eyes would start to glaze over.

    ugh that was hard….does anybody know where the 3rd egg was?
