Start'em young! :)
Thanks Tom, that's exactly the kind of thing we are looking for, although it still has to pass state inspection so we want to make sure we do it right (but cheap!)
Yes, I am totally not into jewelry and my fear now is that, since I clicked on a couple of the links and I am on my husband's work computer, the ads will pop up when he opens his email and he will...

Mmm, I did not find them that difficult either... Maybe start with slightly modified (easier) versions at first?
Favorite post so far!!
