Hey! I’m Iris, I live in the bright blue and green city of Seattle, and I have no idea what I’m going to do when I grow up.

When I was about nine years old, I accidentally checked out a blogging book (thinking it was about crafts). I started sharing the my homemade, handmade cards and entering into card challenges, giveaways, and was immersed in a world of kind, crafty people who shared their creations on blogs. I loved it so, so much.

In the summer of 2013, my creativity was bubbling away and soon I had nothing to show on the blog.  I had things to say, as most bloggers do, but I felt like my thoughts on productivity, or my short little stories, or especially travel/lifestyle/fashion didn’t seem to fit in. That’s when I started Hey Iris. I went through countless changes and I devoted my summer to writing anything and everything I wanted. This blog was my little downtown studio apartment decked out in awesome rays of light and furniture where I could do anything.

I’ve made blogging friends, learned so much about business and marketing, and about myself too. Most importantly, I think blogging will keep me sane through the adventure that will be the next years of highschool.
