Thank you KITV4 Island Television News This Morning!

What a way to start my morning! Today was my interview with Mahealani Richardson at
KITV (check out the full show title above—I just wanted to say it once). I was there at 5:40 a.m. for my 6:15 segment. I parked outside the studio and was struggling with my "props" when Dan Meisenzahl saw me and came to my rescue. What a sweetie!

It was nice to see the rapport that Dan and Mahea have with the crew. You could see that everyone enjoys each other’s company—which is hard to believe so early in the morning!

Mahea was a joy to work with. She was very professional but personable and fun at the same time. I did my best to add a little style, color and texture to their set. My only regret is that I underestimated the size of their coffee table and brought accessories that were a little too big. Oh well, it was only temporary!

After my segment, they told me that I should come back, and I offered to make over their side set for real the next time. I would love to create a space that reflects their personalities: unique, bold and fun. They really need it! Mahea was thrilled and said let's talk soon. OK, Mahea—as soon as I find the time.

The segment was only a few minutes long—boy, did it go by fast! It's a good thing I didn't have to promote our workshop this Saturday because we are sold out. As soon as I was done at the studio, I headed back to the office for an early start. We may be sold out, but there are still a million and one things to do to get ready for this event.

Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I hear the clock ticking!
