Creativity stalled by cold weather and cleaning...

For the first time in months I have a completely clean and organized workspace :) Which is fantastic, however now that I am able to sit down and "begin" to create I find myself suddenly at an impass... sub-zero temperatures outside only complete my frustration as my hands become increasingly colder and stiff (my poor little desk heater died last night).  Everything was perfect today, the kids were behaving and complacent to mommy working on beads and my brain seemed to overflow with concepts until I tried to tap into them, bringing them to life...

Perhaps some ideas might be passed around as to how one pushes through those blockades created by too keen a solitary focus?

On the upside, I still have a clean workspace and I was able to get earwires made for two pairs of earrings that I plan to post on etsy within a day.

I know how you feel Kris. Of course, my problem is usually Beader's Block instead of cold hands (although if my feet get cold, all bets are off!). I have so much to do, and little time to get it done, still I sometimes sit down and can't even force myself to do one of the million things that I need to do. I am my own worst enemy. I hope that you will get another chance to create soon when the moon and stars align with children's good moods, and warm hands!
