I haven't put my idea in place yet, but the inspiration came from the magnetic photo sleeves on the filing cabinet in our home office. I'm looking for some type of panel, grid, etc that the magnetic sleeves will hold to, then I will mount it on a bare wall that we have next to the dining area and put my photos in the magnetic sleeves. This way the photos can easily be changed out when "Grands" get new school pix, etc.

Last week I picked up a package of four sheets of "bulletin board" stuff at Camping World. It comes with a sticky back that is supposed to come off without residue when you want to remove the "bulletin board". The front is a neat material that you just stick papers or pictures to. I put it up inside my cabinet doors, as I wasn't sure about the "no residue" situation. Now I can put up pictures without the clutter and enjoy them every time I open the doors. Really easy to change out the pictures, too. It comes in three colors, grey, beige, and ?? (no memory anymore at all, I swear). You can trim the bulletine board stuff to any size or shape you want with scissors.

Some people at work have used this material for at least two years and it continues to work fine for them. Don't know if your magnetic sleeves will stick, but they might. If they don't you wouldn't need to use them anyway.

Another idea might be a small whiteboard from an office supply store. If you read their labels, some are magnetic, some are not. A magnetic one would work very well for you, but is a lot heavier solution than the first I offered.

Let us know what you try...I expect more good ideas will be flowing in.

I bought a large sheet of white poster board, placed pieces of sticky tape (the kind with the "foam" backing) on each corner and in the center so I could attach the poster board to the refrigerator door. Then I used little photo attachments to make an arrangement of photographs. Photos can be interchanged as you wish. You can also use foam poster board on the wall to make photo displays. It looks neat and the foam tape can be removed whenever you want. If you have large photos you can place them in a plastic bag for protection and then attach the bag to the wall or refrig or whatever.

Digital photo frames ... a little pricy ($100+ cdn)but they takes memory cards & will make a slideshow of your pictures. It wouldn't be home without pictures of our family, we needed a way to take our 2-year-old who passed away with us -just wouldn't feel right. Every picture is may favorite (yes, even the blurry ones)and I get to see them all

I have Windows XP on my computer and it comes with a screen saver that defaults to a slide show. I have a little over 5,000 photographs and it will randomly display them any time the screen saver kicks in.

It is not unusual for both of us to realize that we have been watching the screen saver instead of the television.

We are in the process of getting his-&-hers computers so we will have two slide shows to watch.

We have a TT on permanent site down east in NC. I was thinking on subject of photo's one day and looked up and saw levelor blinds on slider door had top frame with clear plastic guides. I have been sliding photo's in there. High...yes but I can point them out to guests...can't miss them once in trailer. Magnetic tough but would also want sleeve to protect photo if any lower on wall, etc. Refrigerator magnet picture frame holders work

Good Luck,

There are websites that allow you to make a bound book of photos, I haven't done it yet but I am going to. I think a volume per year... we have our scrapbooks at home, but I'd like something in the coach. shutterfly.com has some options, or google "photo books". Have fun!

Cool idea.

Magnetic board with over door hangers too. We don't travel enough in our MH yet to need scrap books but having something on display like that when you wanted to share a picture or two with others is neat.

We found a folding privacy panel like you see in the old movies for people to dress behind. It has several picture frames mounted on it. We put it up to block the drivers seat area while parked and fold it and put it under the edge of the bed while underway.

I've used photo fabric (available in Walmart and quilt shops, etc.) to make photo quilts that I hang on the walls. I don't worry about them falling on the floor and breaking. I can't do too many, but I've done the important ones. Also, can make photo pillows, etc.
