    Woo hoo! Can’t wait – although the “click me to begin” egg was quite the teaser! :-)

    OK Jacki says:

    Dare I say it…don’t want to jinx anything…but I hope all of us poised and ready to hunt eggs, doesn’t result in us crashing the new website right out of the gate. Who knew egg hunting would be so ‘important’…lol

  9. B Miller
    B Miller says:

    So, Kevin – can you quantify “shortly”? Two minutes? Two hours? :-)

    CAS says:

    Kevin … such a tease … the new site is bound to be great, wonderful, superb, but … where are the eggs?!? Leaving us waiting … tsk …tsk … tsk!!

    Still the best though ;)

  22. B Miller
    B Miller says:

    No pressure, Lima folks… but it’s a feeding frenzy out here! :-p

  23. CAS
    CAS says:

    Feeding frenzy?!? A “feeding frenzy” is a mere tea party of the gentlest type compared to beaders waiting for eggs!!!

  24. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    ‘Rabid’ beaders…. :-P

  25. CAS
    CAS says:

    Oh, sorry, I stand corrected … “Rabid” beaders … ;)

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    8O Still no eggs?!! Hmmmmm……….?
    What’s up with that?
    Gonna’ have to lock up the rabid beaders just so they don’t bite anybody! LOL! ;-)

  35. No Photo
    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Hmmmmmmmm………Might not be such a good idea to launch a new website AND the egg hunt at the same time. You KNOW there will be clitches and you KNOW we’ll all overwhelm the system. We usually do….. ;-) It’ll be fun though! :-D

  36. CAS
    CAS says:

    Kevin … please, please, please give us an ETA (Egg Time About?) … please … (how’s my whining working) … pretty please …. :)

  37. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    ETA…hehehe!

    We know you guys are probably working tirelessly to make sure everything is just right…..either that, or you all sitting back, laughing your heads off at all of us with itchy clicking fingers!! Hehehe! ;-)

  38. B Miller
    B Miller says:

    Okay, this is no yolking matter… I’m driving myself crazy waiting for these eggs to appear! :-)

    Such cruel punishment!

  43. B Miller
    B Miller says:

    And still no eggs, sigh.
    Lima Bunny, where are you?
    Your beaders await.

  44. S Marlow
    S Marlow says:

    There are some funny comments coming from the egg-er bunny chasers. I’m rather eggs-asperated over the waiting, myself.

    Whats the trick? Click me to begin does not do anything.Shelley

    Kevin says:

    Hi Shelley.

    This blog post was actually just a sneak peek with a quick screenshot of the new web site we were about to launch. To get started on the Easter Egg Hunt, just click the one on our home page. http://www.limabeads.com

    The egg hunt blog is closed – but I just have to add my support for half strands – I LOVE THOSE HALF STRANDS!!! Especially, when the strand costs $25 and I just need five more beads…

    L McKeown says:

    To Leo Girls,
    I tried the same thing typing “Easter eggs” and “eggs” int the search line. I think we were very clever!

  49. No Photo
    Dot J says:

    I have to confess I too did type “Easter Egg” into the search box – or did I just think about it and was too tired to actual do it?!?

  50. No Photo
    Dot J says:

    OOOOOhhhhhh! I just found the zoom feature when looking at the sparkly beaded chain… How about adding sterling silver sparkly beaded chain?

  51. Leo Girls
    Leo Girls says:

    L McKeown and Dot J, way to go!! Glad I wasn’t the only desperado in the bunch.

  52. Chippy Chick aka Lindys
    Chippy Chick aka Lindys says:

    The Egg hunt might be over but I can’t wait for the semi-truck to deliver my new order!!! LOL!!! I really like the updated features on the new site. Great job LB!

  53. whimsy girl
    whimsy girl says:

    I want to know who won the gift certificates! I want to know where the stupid golden eggs were.

  54. J Pilkington
    J Pilkington says:

    leo girls… I did the same thing with the search box! And when I typed “egg” I scrolled down and found a crackled egg pendant and clicked on it. Then I clicked on the bigger picture of it and BOOM! Up popped a ginormous egg! It made me jump! It was funny b/c they replaced the regular egg with the Easter one and you could still see the bail.

  55. J Pilkington
    J Pilkington says:

    it was the Earthenwood Studio Ceramic Crackle Egg. LOL I actually found 2 that way, the other was Gaea Ceramic Hand Painted Robin Egg/Lime Bird Frame 28x33mm. Both were found by typing “egg” into the search box and then clicking on anything interesting. LOL

  56. whimsy girl
    whimsy girl says:

    Perhaps we should work on Kevin’s definition of “shortly”!

  57. J Pilkington
    J Pilkington says:

    whimsy girl…I agree! LOL Obsessively waiting is way less interesting than obsessively looking for eggs. So I keep “having” to look at the big green machine…..

  58. A Time To Bead
    A Time To Bead says:

    I can’t believe I didn’t think of searching for eggs in the search box. Now I patiently wait for the drawing. Don’t even know if I stayed on the leaderboard because I went to bed.

  59. BrendaBeads
    BrendaBeads says:

    You’re not alone Peggy, I didn’t think of searching egg either. :/

  60. No Photo
    Dot J says:

    The Lima Beads staff is quiet as they diligently pack and ship all those orders submitted in the final hours of the egg hunt…

    Guess I should have searched for “egg” and not Easter Egg.

  61. DragonDreams
    DragonDreams says:

    I found a VERY deeply hidden egg. It was all the way down at the bottom of the view all feedback page. Talk about a LONG way to scroll down. Did anybody else find the same one?

  62. No Photo
    Jacquie H says:

    Dragon, yes I got that one. I am laughing at you all talking about using the search…I searched for everything having to do with easter!
    Basket, cross, lilly, peace, dove, chocolate…even peeps LOL!!!!!!

  63. DragonDreams
    DragonDreams says:

    lol. I did too. My eyes are still scrolling. I kept clicking on the eggs in the Egg Hunt logo. I also kept thinking the pale flower at the bottoms of pages was an egg, and the blue arrow looks like an egg out of the corner of my eye. I am Soooo glad my mouse has a fancy scrolling feature. I click the scroll button, a ‘magic’ circle appears, and whichever way I move my mouse the page scrolls. The farther the mouse is from the circle the faster the scroll. ;) I started the hunt on my computer, but when I restarted it for routine maintenance, the stupid thing wouldn’t let me go online anymore. :( My daughter was nice enough to let me use her laptop to continue hunting. I am still trying to figure out what’s wrong with my computer. I ‘lost’ all the places I had been, and I hadn’t been writing them down. :( I did find some new eggs on pages I thought I had already searched though. :) Oddly, I found more eggs when I searched like I was new to LB. I guess I know how I’ll be searching next year. :D

  64. J Pilkington
    J Pilkington says:

    dragon..got that one… Jacquie, me too! LOL searched cross, bunny, rabbit…

  65. Snowy
    Snowy says:

    Oh my gosh I did the same thing! Rabbit, Bird, Egg, etc. in the search. I clickedon any nest or thing that looked like an egg. Funny though, I did not get a Easter Egg when I clicked. Found 1 Gold Egg… but..what I seemed to find was you could click on , say, a certain pearl in one section (Back in Stock) but click on the same pearl in the Color section and the egg did not show up. I kept re-clicking those I found, hoping it would forget,
    I too tried clicking the side flowers..too funny. I am glad I did win some free goodies but disappointed I couldn’t find more eggs..after spending HOURS…… I really don’t want to know where they were hidden. Except maybe the gold ones. I would be too frustrated knowing what I missed!

  66. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    I would love to know where those gold eggs were myself. I only ever saw one, and I don’t even really remember where that was. Must have been the pearl one.

    I love the idea of searching for Easter related stuff, too funny! Kind of wish I’d thought of that…

  67. BrendaBeads
    BrendaBeads says:

    I would love to know where those gold eggs were too!

  68. A Time To Bead
    A Time To Bead says:

    I still keep scrolling to the bottom of the page looking for eggs.

  69. No Photo
    GypsyMom says:

    Was I the only one who searched golden egg?

  70. DragonDreams
    DragonDreams says:

    Nope, I searched for that too. I spent hours, with multiple tabs open, waiting for pictures to load. I am glad that LB doesn’t have music on their pages. Check out my fresh pick ‘Pirate Queen’ for the soundtrack I was searching to. lol ;)

  71. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    Way to go, J Pilkington!

    And Snowy, too!
