    Good morning, all Your comments the morning after the hunt are always heartwarming. We will be doing the grand prize drawing and sending out gift certificates later today–and we’ll have an updated posted to the main Hunt page within 24 hours.

    We hope that everyone enjoys their prizes–you DEFINITELY earned them this year Each hunt has its [...]

    Hello, last minute hunters Remember to place your prize orders by midnight Pacific time tonight! Have a great rest of the night, and Happy Easter again!

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 2 weeks ago

    Happy Easter, all! I’m very glad that the “egg blight” is showing signs of getting better.

    Marianne L: I technically have a way to see the individual eggs found by specific people. But it’s time consuming and very “manual”, so working with numbers is much easier.

    SImplyStacyJewelry: If you’re talking about clicking the main photo of a product [...]

    One more thing I forgot to mention… Just based on percentages, it looks like the eggs giving hunters issues are on the category listing pages (not the individual item pages). So if you DID want to comb over areas you already visited, I would focus more on the category listings. This is just my instinct based [...]

    Hi all… just want to let you know that I’ve been trying to catch up on the comments, especially the ones about eggs being a little scare during times for people. (I received diamonddustshoe’s e-mail as well).

    First off, we know how much time you put into this hunt And we hope it’s worth it in the [...]

    Hi all! We are about halfway through the hunt… is anyone seeing eggs in their sleep yet?

    I wanted to confirm a few things:

    Yes, there are eggs to be found in the Chain area. As with other sections, it may take a little digging–but there are some in there.

    We’ll get those eye pins fixed! Thanks!

    Regarding the “Create [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Oh… and remember to stay logged into your account while hunting. This will ensure that the eggs show up for you, and that it will keep track of your count.

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    I also wanted to point out that we have temporarily removed the “shop seed beads by color / code” area from the site while the hunt goes on. Long-time hunters still have nightmares about the “droughts” of eggs encountered while clicking through all those dreaded seed bead colors & codes. We hope this helps keep the [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi all, it sounds like some of you got a jump on the hunt while the eggs were still “rolling out” onto the site. In fact, some of you even found an egg before I got the chance to find my “ceremonial first egg” It looks like this was sorted out shortly thereafter, and it would [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi all! I’m happy to see some familiar names on the leaderboard (and new ones as well)!

    I wanted to let you know that we made sure that all eggs are findable even with the chat button hovering over the corner–but just in case, it will disappear for the remainder of the hunt as long as you [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    The 2022 Hunt is ON! Good luck and happy hunting, everyone!

  • Steve wrote a new blog post: Easter Egg Hunt 2022   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    The time has come for the 13th Annual   Easter Egg Hunt  at Lima Beads! We’ve been egg-xtremely hard at work for the past few days hiding eggs all over the site for the past few days… and we hope you have fun again this year : ) Just like the previous hunt, we have  over $2,000 in gift certificates [...]

    Hi all: Well, that’s a wrap! I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to all of you who participated in the hunt this year. We had to skip the hunt last year… it didn’t feel the same without it! Thank you for making this year’s hunt a success.

    I know some of you saw a [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 5 months ago

    Hi all, great job today! Remember to place any orders with gifts by midnight tonight Pacific time! Happy Easter!

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 6 months ago

    Caroline H: the Priority Packet shipping option to Canada is a good economical option… and there is a good chance that the USPS will carry it into the country.

    Great work hunting everyone! Remember, the hunt ends tomorrow night (11:59pm Pacific time the evening of Easter Sunday). Remember to place your orders with prizes by then!

    [...]

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 6 months ago

    V Brantley: I do think you’ll find a few eggs in the Chain section if you keep poking around.

    Thanks to all for making it a fun hunt so far… remember, the hunt ends on Sunday night at midnight Pacific time (orders with prizes must be placed by this time). Happy hunting!

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 6 months ago

    Hi all, I want to assure everyone that it is *extremely* rare for more than one egg to be on the same page. Don’t sweat it

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 6 months ago

    And THANK YOU to everyone for your feedback We totally hear you. The hunt was a lot different when we started it over a decade ago (there were only 16 eggs!)… Thanks for hunting along and we hope you don’t have too many nightmares featuring those pesky eggs

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2021   1 year, 6 months ago

    E Wilburn: Great question–and I know all this guidance can get confusing Yes, eggs can be on a Green Girl item–because that item “lives” under the Beads or Charms menus most likely. The Artists & Brands menu is just another path you can take to get to that item. So we felt that it would result [...]
