Stickman Self Portrait Scroll Saw Pattern.

I get slightly obsessed sometimes. A bit of an addictive personality. I may be going a little overboard with the stickman series but they are just so much fun to draw that I'm hooked. Today I was inspired to do a self-portrait. I promise I will slow down on these patterns and get back to something a bit more traditional. Until then I introduce the Good family.

Steve Good

Steve is a scroll saw pattern designer and total computer junkie. He spends his days designing patterns and drinking Diet Coke. He says that Diet Coke is the key to a successful design. Without the Diet Coke, Steve gets the shakes, curls up in the fetal position and mumbles incoherently.  3am runs to the grocery store are not out of the question if the supply gets too low. He said, "You gotta do what you gotta do to keep the designs coming".  

Patty Good

Patty is the lovely, caring, smart and supportive wife of Steve(Extra points)). She is trying to convince Steve to stop telling corny stories about Stickman characters. When asked about the situation she said. "It's embarrassing, he is 60 years old and playing with little stickmen. I just don't know what to do.". Patty and Steve's daughter, Kellie thinks it's the Diet Coke. She read a study that says Diet Drinks affect the brain chemistry, producing mind-altering delusions and childish behaviors.    

Holly Good

Holly takes Steve for walks and lets him go out back and play. Her sworn enemy is the mailman. She waits each day for her chance to scare him away with her most vicious bark and growl. She is proud that she makes him leave every time.

Another source for the Cross Laser Module:

Many of you let me know that you were unable to purchase the Laser Module I talked about in my recent "Problem Solved Video". They sold out quickly after the video went out in the newsletter. I found another Amazon source for the cross laser module. This one is even a few cents cheaper. If you missed the video you can watch it here. Video Link
