A Riddle for you

Here is a riddle.

What is it that everything has?

(No google-ing it either!)

Comment your guesses, and if you have no clue, then invite others here to try their minds at it.

Erika Bella the Faerie Princess

Medium: Colored Pencils
My little sister named this one - she tells me what she thinks will happen in this story that we are making up and I write it down and she helps with the art work.
Erika Bella is a faerie princess that lives in a treat shop with her ten sisters and three (very mean) brothers. They, along with her best friends have many adventures in and around the treat shop.
We'll post some of it soon. ;) 

The little author and artist!
I also used the faerie with my header^ =) Not bad for someone with no savvyness with electronics!

A great quote to live by

Humor is the spiciest condiment in the feast of existence.
Laugh at your mistakes but learn from them,
joke over your troubles but gather strength from them,
make a jest of your difficulties but over come them.
~L.M. Montgomery
