Thank you for photo permissions!

Thank you to the wonderful bloggers who have given me permission to use your photos in my posts (with credit to you, a link to your post, and a comment letting you know I’m using your photo, of course)! If you haven’t seen my request for permissions, here’s a link to my post: Request for Montessori Photo Permissions.

If I may have permission to use photos from your blog, please let me know! Although I use Montessori photos most often, I also link to posts with crafts, art projects, and educational activities (especially unit studies and posts like my December 2011 Family Activities). If you have posts with similar activities, I’d really appreciate photo permissions for them. I love that the photos add to the post content and also bring attention to your link.
