Maria Killam on the go! Vancouver Show

By 10/11/2012January 28th, 20178 Comments

Well today was a big media day at BC Place. I woke up at 3:00 am this morning and could not go back to sleep knowing that I had to be there at 6:15 am for Breakfast Television at 6:50 am.

Why is it that you’re always so nervous up until you’re speaking? I was on Breakfast TV for a total of 40 seconds so it wasn’t too difficult, and Dawn Chubai the host was fabulous!

Then at 11:00 am I was interviewed by Johanna Ward (above), the host of the go! Vancouver show.

We talked about my kelly green, Kate Spade inspired end table, (you can vote every day by the way) and a little about my presentation on the main stage starting Friday at 1:00 pm.

The winner will be announced Sunday at 4:00 pm and then the table will be auctioned with all proceeds going to The Habitat for Humanity!

Then Saturday I will be at the ‘Ask a Decorator’ Booth right after both of my talks that day. Come and say hi, I’d love to talk to you!

The winner of two tickets to the Show this weekend is Nour, she was the 8th comment on my last post!

See you soon, xoxo Maria

  • Good morning Maria
    I am going to the show today and hope to see you and say hi! Congrats on the gig. Of course I voted for your table. Nancy and I are off to Victoria today for our 1 year anniversary. Will be there for the weekend. Naturally it has to rain.

    What is the drive time from Yarrow to downtown?????

  • talk about nerve racking…your end table is really just what they want to see, color of course! I voted.

  • I hope you have a great weekend, Maria! You will be a hit once again. Have fun!

    That is a picture perfect photo. It looks like you coordinated your wardrobe (and the table) to go with setting! Glad to know it will go to someone that really wants it and for a good cause. I’m even tempted to join facebook just vote.

    The more you do this, Maria, the easier it gets!
    My husband always says: “Frequent exposure to the fear stimulus” [alleviates the fear]. Of course, he won’t get up & speak in front of any group unless he prepares for 10 hours! He pushed me when I started to sing solos and was petrified–now I can be a ham, no problem! You look cute as a button too!
    (I know, that’s so “off-trend” to say it that way…..
