To kick off the night was EK Designs with their fabulous jewels (wonder if they will make it into next year’s Oscar basket?). You can check them out at www.ekdesigns.com, but if you fall in love with something sparkly you’ll need to stop by your local jewelry store, Elizabeth Kissick, theowner, only sells her charitable pieces online. She has gone big time! A stay at home Mom who turned her art education and jewelry talent into a huge success long before bead shops she said were even the rave. At one store alone, she sells more than 500 of her pieces in a season! And she is in dozens of stores worldwide. Go get em girl!

Next we received a star-studded visit from Carolyn Pickman of CP Casting. http://www.cpcasting.com.
She has done casting for just about every local production — The Town, Shutter Island, Company Man, Good Will Hunting; Her resume is brimming! When the studios come to town, they call Carolyn. And we could easily see why. She’s warm hearted, incredibly experienced, reliable, insightful and she absolutely loves what she does.

Our Oscar night continued with Erica McDermott who paid us a delightful surprise visit (we had our fingers crossed that she’d call us). Another Mom turned big success! A former Braintree girl, now living in my hometown (in my neighborhood) in Scituate, Erica found overnight stardom last year when she was cast as ‘Tar” one of Mark Wahlbergs sister’s in the Oscar winning movie, The Fighter.
Well deserved, Erica was a stand-out at the audition. Shewas hoping for a small principal part but her guts and rough and tumble attitude bumped her immediately up to a supporting role. Kudos to Erica! We’re so proud of you! Check her out at http://neactor.ning.com/profile/EricaMcDermott.
To cap off our star studded night was Jimmy Peters and his band. What a way to end a lovable evening of fun and entertainment. And he came bearing gifts. His latest CD and pens with stars and moons and all fanciful shapes! We loved that Jimmy!!
Jimmy was raised on rock and roll but also has explored country, folk, bluegrass, and blues. You can find him at The Tinker’s son, Hajjars, Slap-shotz, O’Tooles and venues all over the south shore. Check out his upcoming show list at http://home.comcast.net/~james.peters3/gigs.htm
