Easter Egg 2015 Results

EEH 2015 Wrap-Up

The 7th Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Lima Beads has come to a close, and we have an important announcement to make :) Let’s get right down to business…

Leaderboard Gift Certificates

Everyone that was on the Leaderboard at the end of the hunt gets a $20 Gift Certificate. We sent them out this morning via e-mail… if you’re on the Leaderboard, you should have yours shortly. We never underestimate the dedication it takes from the “egg-splorers” in the Top 100. Great job, you’ve earned it!

The Grand Prize

The Grand Prize for a $250 Gift Certificate is awarded to one of the hunters in the Top 10 at the end of the contest by a random drawing. This year’s grand prize winner is…. M Chen! We drew her name out of a Twizzler container, and we posted a pic below of the slip with her name. Congratulations! She searched diligently from the first day of the hunt up until the weekend.

Looking Back…

It’s hard to believe that we’ve had 7 Easter Egg Hunts, and we took some time to look back at the fun we’ve had in previous years. Does anyone remember when there were only 16 eggs? We’ve come along way (and literally hundreds of thousands of eggs have been found since then). Thanks to everyone for their ideas and suggestions for next year’s hunt. We’re listening!

Do you remember when there were only 16 eggs?

Thank You!

As always, we owe everyone a huge “Thank You” for taking part in the hunt. It takes a lot of time to pick out hiding spots and place all those little eggs, but that doesn’t come close to the amount of time you all spend trying to find them :) So thanks for helping make the week fun for everyone. We hope you enjoyed it! We hope everyone had a safe & happy Easter. Until next time… :)

    This was my second year and wayyyyyy harder than last year. I thought I could search well but got stuck at 57 eggs compared to 75 last year. A special thank you to all the Lima staff for their hard work. Kudos to the leaderboard people, you have to be awesome. My competitive juices are flowing for next year’s hunt!!!!!

    I remember the first but its the hidding spots from year two ? That Iremember the most. Remember the egg hidden on the green fresh water pearl? Or the egg in the wheelbarrow that Steve was pushing? Of course the last two years of the search button. The sneakest one I found this year was the one in the lower right part of the page by the next button. Right where my finger was to scroll back up the page.
    I usually advertise this hto the others I work with but when your self employed there are fewer people to be impressed by how cool of a marketing plan it is.

    Well!
    This year’s hunt was definitely not over-easy. Deviled competition was boiling so hard, I scrambled such I almost cracked! It was so close at the end, I thought I was poached, but there’s no way omelette that slide, right? The last few moments so eggciting I nearly dyed! I was totally fried by the time it was over, but I landed sunny side up because I found all these eggcellent products along the way. All yolks aside, I really hatched some new ideas to help me come out of my shell.

    *ahem* (sorry, had to get that out of my system ;) )

    Seriously, my largest. cart. ever. coming up, here. Whoo! I guess I was behind some in hunting this year because I was so busy shopping, wow! And my order from the contest is already here! Like lightning!

    Everyone here is so awesome. *happy dance*

    As soon as I get this ordered and in, I’ll post one of the projects I have planned to the Gallery. Keep an egg, I mean, an eye out for it. ;)

    Congrats M Chen and thank you Lima Beads for the great prizes and fun! It was an exhausting search but I am already looking forward to next year’s egg hunt.

    Thanks Lima Team for all you do! I absolutely love this website, you really take care of us here.
    Congrats M. Chen and everyone else that made the leaderboard. Have fun spending your winnings! I had fun choosing my gifts along the way!

    Snowy says:

    Ummm Diamond…I think you’ve been hunting a bit too long hun! Remember our fun a few years back…and in frustration hitting the search with Egg and found one? Didn’t work this year. Congrats to all the winners and efforts..and a HUGE round of applause to the Lima Crew for having this. Smiles to all!

    diamonddustshoe says:

    Hi Snowy!
    I think I’m okay now. ;) I think.

    Yeah, that was a good egg, I remember laughing so hard when I found it.

    Everyone had such glowing comments about DiamondDust and her search tips and morale-boosting advice that I felt she definitely deserved the Miss Congenialty Award–but upon reading her latest entries:(“Well! This year’s hunt…”), I think, instead, she needs to be “PUN-ished!”

    Thanks to Lima and congrats to all. And Diamond, I was REALLY rooting for you all along. I got started on the hunt a bit late, and when I first saw that you weren’t in the top ten, I KNEW it was going to be harder than usual! But you made your goal and defended your reputation! Good going, Girl!

    diamonddustshoe says:

    Hahaha! I’d not used a single egg pun the whole week, so I couldn’t contain the pressure anymore. ;)

    Thank you! It really was a nailbiter at the end I felt bad for very good sport Kristine C up there.

    I admit I thought “THIS TIME FOR SURE” but alas…congratulations to the very quiet M Chen.

    I remember/took part in every egg hunt except for last year. I was a little busy retiring from my job of 26 years. Over the years I have found the best prize for those of us who found less than 75 eggs was the discount coupon.
    I did find the most (65) than I have before.
    I have, for the most part, looked at the egg hunt as a very fun thing to do. My husband, a psychologist, and I had a laugh this year when he offered to create a support group for the family members and friends of the bead hunters. :) :)

    A LAST COMPLIMENT FOR STEVE: Aside from the fact that you have a robustly devious mind and a relentless capacity for cruelty, your Easter Eggs have become, for me, completely classical and iconic. They’re essential, pure, understated, and not at all glitzy, but they are truly some of the nicest designs around–a bit like the simple, “comic book” Easter eggs of my childhood. You have my vote for the “Walt Disney of Easter Egg Design!”

    Congrats to M.Chen on winning!! Just received my order with my prizes, love em’. Thank you Lima Beads for the challenging but exciting easter egg hunt. Until next year!

    Mandollyn says:

    Again, I want to commend Lima Beads for all the size variations… The small egg was awesome to see!

    I think the 18 eggs that weren’t found should stay on the website and whomever finds them should get $1 off their order!

    Searching for eggs is super fun for me… I’m also one of those ‘Hidden Mickey” searchers too!

  21. diamonddustshoe
    diamonddustshoe says:

    I got order #2 in today (see, super fast!), and put together my “lucky charm” for next year. Hope it was okay to add it to the gallery, no one should be hunting there anyway! ;)

    Looking forward to next year!

    Congrats to M Chen, and thanks once again to Limabeads (especially Steve) for another fabulously fun egg hunt! I do remember the first Egg Hunt, and all of the subsequent hunts. I even have lists of where I found eggs each year. I refer to them during egg hunts to remind me of places to look. I can’t wait till next year’s Egg Hunt!

    One question though – when does the 25 egg discount coupon code expire? It said both April 15 and April 30. Which is it?
