Instead of sharing a whimsical quote or song like I usually do on Wednesdays, I’d like to dedicate this Whimsical Wednesday post to 7-year-old Sarah Lane-Gomez, the 2018 winner of the Doodle 4 Google contest. The theme was “What Inspires Me.”

01084762-aa05-4efd-aca6-5774429037c9Sarah is an aspiring paleontologist from Falls Church, Virginia who created her charming drawing during a snowstorm last winter. In her submission Sarah explained that: “Dinosaurs inspire me to study more to be a paleontologist. The shovel is for my future job!” For the full story on the contest (which is celebrating its 10th year), and how Sarah’s whimsical dinos were brought to life, please check out the video below. 

And, before I forget, submissions are now being accepted for the 2019 Doodle 4 Google contest, so if you have any young artists at home they’re welcome to enter. This year’s theme is: “When I grow up, I hope…” Here’s the official announcement from Jimmy Fallon and Kermit, the 2019 judges. As an added bonus you get to listen to one of my favorite songs!
