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

brand new site? hurry up! hurry up!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:13 am #
I notice the shopping bag in the example has 79 things in it…must be mine, LOL
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:14 am #
I noticed the same thing, whimsy girl!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:17 am #
So excited to start!!!
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
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:18 am #
So, Kevin – can you quantify “shortly”? Two minutes? Two hours?
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:21 am #
Hah, yeah, do I have time for a quick nap?
It looks so nice though, I want to start clicking!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:26 am #
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
On Apr 02, 2012 at 11:51 am #
Ahhhh I have been looking forward to this all year!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

Wow, can’t wait to explore your new site!! Patiently (?) waiting!!!!!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 1:04 pm #
I am not getting much done at work, as I keep looking for the Easter egg hunt to be up and running!

No pressure, Lima folks… but it’s a feeding frenzy out here! :-p
On Apr 02, 2012 at 1:46 pm #
Feeding frenzy?!? A “feeding frenzy” is a mere tea party of the gentlest type compared to beaders waiting for eggs!!!

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

Tick tock, tick tock….. I am not waiting patiently…(big, heavy sigh).
On Apr 02, 2012 at 1:59 pm #
Check the site, wait, refresh, deep sigh. Check the site, wait, refresh, deep sigh…
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:05 pm #
5 hours does not mean shortly. Thats an awful long shortly. But, getting eggcited!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:14 pm #
LOL B Miller! Same here!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:16 pm #
I just know I’ll have to “leave the room”, and when I do, the hunt will start for sure – drat!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:18 pm #
I’ve been waiting all weekend. Sooo hard to wait.
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:21 pm #
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!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:26 pm #
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!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:27 pm #
Kevin … please, please, please give us an ETA (Egg Time About?) … please … (how’s my whining working) … pretty please ….
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:35 pm #
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!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:46 pm #
Okay, this is no yolking matter… I’m driving myself crazy waiting for these eggs to appear!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:49 pm #
eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs! eggs!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:50 pm #
no rush here, take all the time you need… LOL
On Apr 02, 2012 at 2:57 pm #
waiting…now that I know it’s coming it’s cooool!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 3:09 pm #
Such cruel punishment!
On Apr 02, 2012 at 3:30 pm #
And still no eggs, sigh.
Lima Bunny, where are you?
Your beaders await.
On Apr 02, 2012 at 3:35 pm #
There are some funny comments coming from the egg-er bunny chasers. I’m rather eggs-asperated over the waiting, myself.
On Apr 03, 2012 at 1:14 pm #
Whats the trick? Click me to begin does not do anything.Shelley
On Apr 03, 2012 at 2:16 pm #
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
On Apr 09, 2012 at 10:55 am #
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…
On Apr 09, 2012 at 11:10 am #
To Leo Girls,
I tried the same thing typing “Easter eggs” and “eggs” int the search line. I think we were very clever!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 11:14 am #
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?!?
On Apr 09, 2012 at 11:54 am #
OOOOOhhhhhh! I just found the zoom feature when looking at the sparkly beaded chain… How about adding sterling silver sparkly beaded chain?
On Apr 09, 2012 at 12:04 pm #
L McKeown and Dot J, way to go!! Glad I wasn’t the only desperado in the bunch.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 12:52 pm #
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!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 12:58 pm #
I want to know who won the gift certificates! I want to know where the stupid golden eggs were.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 1:19 pm #
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.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 1:26 pm #
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
On Apr 09, 2012 at 1:42 pm #
Perhaps we should work on Kevin’s definition of “shortly”!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 1:57 pm #
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…..
On Apr 09, 2012 at 3:42 pm #
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.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 4:05 pm #
You’re not alone Peggy, I didn’t think of searching egg either. :/
On Apr 09, 2012 at 4:41 pm #
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.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 4:45 pm #
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?
On Apr 09, 2012 at 4:53 pm #
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!!!!!!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 5:17 pm #
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.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 5:18 pm #
dragon..got that one… Jacquie, me too! LOL searched cross, bunny, rabbit…
On Apr 09, 2012 at 5:38 pm #
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!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 6:08 pm #
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…
On Apr 09, 2012 at 6:11 pm #
I would love to know where those gold eggs were too!
On Apr 09, 2012 at 6:16 pm #
I still keep scrolling to the bottom of the page looking for eggs.
On Apr 09, 2012 at 6:20 pm #
Was I the only one who searched golden egg?
On Apr 09, 2012 at 6:25 pm #
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
On Apr 09, 2012 at 7:08 pm #
Way to go, J Pilkington!
