Too much too soon!

I think I just might be doing too much too soon! Because I'm an insomniac, I don't want to sleep during the day. I also find it VERY difficult just to lie in be reading or watching TV, sooooo .... I wander around the house and find things to keep myself busy with. Which is not so hard for me. There are a LOT of stuff that I want to do. I know my limitations at the moment, so I leave the house decorating / painting for later but I've started to paper scrap - with all the getting up that goes along with it.

I scrapped this page yesterday:
I took this photo in Nov 2007 already and wanted to scrap it eversince but never got around to doing it until now. Don't you just adore rainbows?!
I also made this Jacobs Ladder mini album:
I've wanted to make one of these eversince I first saw it a couple of years ago. It looked real complicated but it's really not. I used this tutorial. I love wildflowers and I'm always taking pictures of them but I never know how to scrap them. I decided to use some of them for this little album. I'm so intrigued by the movement of the Jacob's ladder - I played with it all day long! :)
Here's a video clip of a jacob's Ladder album in action:
I stumbled upon the Yearbook Yourself website and had a bit of fun over there. Here are some of the results:
Oh - I also baked some chocolate brownies. Yum!
I felt good all day long yesterday - didn't even need pain tablets! Last night however, my body was really angry at me for overdoing it!
Today I promised myself to take it slower. BUT I still plan to re-organise my scrap room. I will do it little by little and take time to rest inbetween - I promise! :)
Can't wait to show you my new alphabet drawer cupboard thinghy that I had made by the sweetest old guy! That will have to wait till after the re-organisation.
Have a great day! :)

Sjoe I am just tired reading about everything you have been up to. Love all the crafty things you've made and even the chocolate cake. Remember to take it easy now and then as well.
