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 and a link to your post, 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 posts with family activities). If you have posts with similar activities, I’d really appreciate photo permissions for them. Being able to use a photo from your post adds to the roundup post content and also brings attention to your link.
