Transformation Tuesday #3

Transformation Tuesday: Before and After

Wow! I am SO glad to have gotten some more submissions for Transformation Tuesday. I can't stress enough how much I am loving this series. I get so excited to see the photos in my inbox. And even though some of you are nonchalant about the transformations you submit, you should know that I find them amazing! Every single one that I've seen has made me think "Wow! That's so awesome!"

So, please PLEASE keep them coming. I know a lot of you are enjoying this series as well, so I need you to submit transformations in order to keep it going. I'll post the usual "how to submit a transformation" info at the bottom of this post.

I'll get right to it! Here are some very stunning transformations on this Tuesday...

After my daughter left for Navy bootcamp and my son moved into a new condo, I spent my free time redecorating my son's bedroom--removed the popcorn ceilings, replaced the ceiling fan and blinds, and painted it the prettiest shade of pink!

We rescued our pup, Snowy, last July when she was five months old. She has come a long way since she was in foster care, and we absolutely adore her!

Thank you so much to all of you that shared your transformations. I am in awe :)

As I said, to continue the series, I need you to share a transformation of any sort! Here's how:

1) Email one "before" photo and one "after" photo, of anything you'd like, to: transformations (at) runsforcookies (dot) com.

Please keep the photos separate rather than collaging them, and refrain from using filters or Photoshop on the photos. I feel like everything is filtered these days, and filters tend to invalidate the "wow" factor. If necessary, I may crop or resize the photos simply to fit uniformly into the post, but I will try to keep them as original as possible. Also, if there is someone in the photo, just make sure it's cool with them that I share it here.

2) You may include a link to your personal blog or social media page if you'd like (no business or promotional pages--this will be at my discretion). Please include the following:

-One sentence description of the transformation

-First Name; Location; A few words of who you are (i.e. "New DIY'er" or "Cat Lover", etc). If you want me to leave out name/location, just let me know.

3) I will post whenever I get enough submissions to do so--it could be one week or it could be several. I'll send you an email to let you know beforehand, though.

Thanks for sharing!

  1. I just LOVE this series! Its giving me inspiration to try and transform something else at my house! Lol. Although my husband and I are currently working on making over our backyard. It's going to take awhile yet but once we're done, I'll be sure to send in a photo!

    1. I hope you send in photos when you're done! I'd love to see it!

  2. Love this series!!!

  3. These are so much fun to look at! I love it! I'm trying to come up with some of my own transformations to send in.

    1. It's not hard, honestly... today, I was pulling weeds and I thought, "I should have taken a before photo so that I could share the difference". It's just pulling out weeds, but it's fun to see the difference!

  4. these are inspiring and heartwarming!

  5. I LOVE all of these transformations but my favorite is Snowy the rescued pup! I wish everybody would rescue and have there's neutered and spayed. There are so many animals needing a good home. Snowy looks so happy and she's so lucky!

    1. Me too! I hope that more people will submit rescue photos. I really wish that everyone would rescue and then spay/neuter as well. <3

  6. Oh my goodness Snowy looks like a different dog. What a wonderful, heart warming transformation!

    1. Doesn't it just make your heart melt to see the change in such a sweet little dog?!


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
