Behind-the-Scenes: Paper Wishes’ Annual Easter Egg Hunt!

It’s official—spring has sprung! Thursday was our annual employee Easter Egg Hunt, and surprisingly we had clear skies (not typical for an Oregon Easter)!



Our tulips came up just in time for some Easter fun!




Paulette and others waiting for the hunt to start!


Still waiting...

Just joking around…


Nathan, our Warehouse Lead, used highly-trained Eva to sniff out hidden eggs!

Bethany hid little “Peter Rabbit” somewhere in the building for employees to find! The winner received a chocolate bunny.


I hope you all have your Easter cards finished because the big day is almost here! Next week I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite new Paper Wishes crafting finds, so stay tuned for that. Have a fabulous Easter weekend everyone!!!

    So a few hours after the big egg hunt, Scott emailed everyone with a photo of this unfound egg—ha! Happens every year… 😀

    What fun on a work day. Only goes to prove that you are never too old for an egg hunt. But then again youth would not have missed any eggs. LOL. Happy Easter to all at Paper Wishes.

      Happy Easter, Louise!! I love our location too! We are right on the edge of some forest, and we have deer, quail, and squirrels that stop by regularly! It’s very cool.
