Reply to "Bare infinitives"

Thanks to everyone for all you replies to my question!

Marilyn,

According to the examples you gave in your reply:

All I was doing was offering him some advice.

The puppy is doing nothing but making messes on the floor.

Would it also be possible to modify my original sentence in the same way?

All she was doing was nothing but crying all day.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something that sounds strange about this sentence.
