Default Need a good word...

I have recently become addicted to name frames. I've done my last name, my nephews name, and am working on my name.

I want to make one for our guest bathroom. Can you think of a good word to go in there?

Usually the words I use for craft type things are "imagine" "dream" or "create" none of which seem appropriate for a restroom.

My best idea so far is "please flush" which just has too many letters to fit in the frame Actually, I'm trying to avoid potty humor...

Thanks for the inspiration!

How about "THINK"? Seems like a good word for a bathroom. Much better than "AIM"

Maybe, since it is a guest bath, something like Friends or Welcome....??

I guess "create" is kinda a bad choice.

How about bath, scrub, rub a dub dub. Do you have a theme in the bathroom? Maybe you could go with something from that if you do.

I got one the other day, and then picked up 4 more today. I only had 2 left , but I have a rule against "stocking up" otherwise I would buy EVERYTHING in site. Something new will always come along.

Keep the ideas coming. Alas, we have no theme. It's our guest bath/laundry room. Maybe I should go with "CLEAN".

I love "rub a dub" but not sure if I could fit it. I also like the idea of "friends" or "relax". I also love all the jokes others are coming up with. It's just too easy...

Fixing this because it should say "I only have 2 left" Before this weekend I had none- I could never find them.
I made one yesterday, and 2 more today

If you're looking for Word Mats, try The Card Ladies. They make custom words:

Those are very cute, but nope- I'm actually looking for the word to use! I'm planning on making it myself.

How about "peace", "life", or "calm"? Is there a tub in that guest bath? Those words might relate....

No tub, which is whats making this hard. I liked the word "relax"- but my husband said thats too weird. He agreed it would make sense if there was a tub.

Don't ask your DH what he thinks! Men come up with ideas like "PLAYSTATION" and that's just not right!

Hehehe - we found this great decorative bouy to put in our bathroom -- it was navy and nautical -- exactly what we were looking for. We got it for a "steal" of a price and hung it right away. The next day, I was in there doing my business when I realized that it says "welcome aboard" --rofl -- I wouldn't suggest that

This reminded me of a joke someone emailed me several years ago:

At a large computer research plant, a manager had placed a sign in the bathroom. The sign, placed above the sink, said simply, "THINK!"
The next day, the manager walked in to find another sign had been placed in the bathroom. This one, placed over the soap dispenser, said simply, "THOAP!"

I have a sign on my laundry room door (which also doubles as a changing room for the hottub) that says *Drop your panties here* but I guess that's too long for what you want.

Probably not what you were looking for, but Vacate comes to mind.

Seriously, though, I would second refresh.

One other idea. Instead of a word, what if you did an image - like a floral - on each of the "tags" you'd normally do a name? Or "His & Hers"? Or "Guests"?

How about "Remember.."...?

That would make people "think" about what they were supposed to remember. Remember to wash their hands, flush the toilet, shut the lid, hang up their towel, close the shower curtain, turn off the light....

I like that! Long ago when I was managing a music store, I drew step by step instructions, using stick men, on how to change the toilet paper roll, in our staff bathroom!
