When I was a child, I loved crafting. Remember, this was the 70's, so painted rocks were the height of cool in crafting. My Dad would take us to the river where we would choose a few rocks (my brother would spend the time lobbing heavy ones into deep pools)and bring them home to paint. I loved painting Ladybirds on them. He still uses one as a paperweight in his office.

I need to find a rock and make myself a paperweight.
