Happy Monday

by Sarah

Monday has rolled around again…hey there, Monday, how you doing? What has made you smile today?

The Handprint team received something wonderful today:

Handprint Thank You


There can’t be a better way to start the working week then to receive a big envelope full of thank you letters and drawings from children who have enjoyed our workshops! Certainly put a big smile on our faces and Soapy Sam has a lot of new fans!! – what we said earlier on Facebook.

“I was really happy playing in the rainbow” – said by a child in a nursery we worked at recently.

Need more reasons to smile today? How about the lovely sunshine?!

Or news about the Deaflympics Flame Relay? 

Or a competition to win a pair of Eyelash Sunglasses?

Or an extremely interesting article about the “many faces of the Creative Performer”?

And, in the spirit of Canada Day, how about this list?

Now…go and do a little sunshine dance…you know you want to!

Happy Monday from us all: the giddy-on-sunshine-Handprinters!

P.S. Our wonderful Jennifer Wilson is flying home today – we can’t wait to see her! (She has been in Sri Lanka since January!!)

There’s something about Neverland, and Peter Pan, that lures us into wanting to stay young (at least at heart) forever. It also seems that Neverland isn’t so hard to find… All you need to do is go to your local woodlands, and immerse yourself in the moment. Take notice of the flowers, the trees, lakes, rivers, and brooks; take notice of the little things around you. Breathe in deeply. Take your time. And then get giddy. It won’t be long before you’re getting in touch with your inner lostchild (hey, no sexism here…), fairy, mermaid, or pirate!

Happy Monday, here’s to finding your Neverland.

The Olympics have officially arrived!!


Let’s dress up and do a happy dance…




People watching is pretty fun on the tube at the moment, especially when people dress head to toe in their country’s colours!


We’re right behind Team GB…



…and Team Handprint!


And to round it off, the sky was vibrant tonight…




We love a good sunset, we do. A very Happy Monday to you all!

Lots of love from Team Handprint, always looking for the small things xx

Happy Monday

Another Monday has rolled around…and after last night, it’s possibly one of those hard Mondays…why, England, why do you build us up, just to knock us down?

Why do you build me up, 
Buttercup baby,
Just to let me down,
And mess me around,
And then worst of all,
You never call baby,
When you say you will,
But I love you still,
I need you,
More than anyone darlin’,
You know that I have from the start…

And, on top of that…Sam has been naughty…

Tut tut!

Keep smiling…Happy Monday!

Wow! How can it already be the middle of June? The days are starting to whizz by!

What has been making you smile? Remember those things on Mondays that seem to drag…and give yourself a treat as well! Happy Monday!

Something’s Gotta Give…today!

by handprinttheatreblog

It’s here…the performance day is here. If you are free, then come along to the Roundhouse in Camden, to catch us at the Accidental Festival, at 2pm…

The Something’s Gotta Give Photo Journal got a little side-tracked on here, didn’t it?! Not to worry though, they will come in the days to come! Here’s a little sneak peak:

Hopefully we’ll see some of you there today, but if not, then have a great Jubilee weekend – dance and sing in the rain to your heart’s content!

Big hugs from all at Handprint, and here’s hoping we all break our legs… x

It’s been a little while coming, but they’re here at last! Thank you to all who came along to see Soapy Sam, and to all those who couldn’t make it – hopefully you’ll get to enjoy the delights that Sam offers in the not too distant future! But for now? Enjoy the photos…and there’s more to come!

…pop back soon for more!

Sam Love.

Soapy Sam finished his run in Croydon, this past weekend, and he is now enjoying his rest. All of us in the Handprint team have a big soft spot for Sam, and we love his mischievousness! How can you fail to be lured in by his lovely self?

We’re smitten by him!

Here’s a sneak peak of the photographs to follow soon, from the run in Croydon:

Keep your eyes peeled!

We hope you have a great Bank Holiday Weekend, with hugs from all at Handprint x
