I think that you should take a break today - after all it is your birthday!
You shouldn't rush, although it does look really good.

Thanks for your wishes. I am taking a break today a bit. My friends are taking me out for lunch later on but I still am working on the skin as much as I can.

At 11:48 am I just finished the animations. I created them in Flash and exported to AVI to use in SkinStudio. The below previews are GIFs so they are not as good quality as AVIs but good enough to give you an idea what I've done.

I will now start with graphics for special folders.

Nice Job!

Just want to know something - Do you know of any good programmes that create Visual Styles for XP? I haven't made a skin before and I've said to myself that I should start from the basics (VS)
I posted a forum earlier but a lot of people are from the US and are sleeping, so their was no reply.

SkinStudio doesn't seem to have a VS utility and I'm only using the free version at the moment anyway.

I have to go now, will check this post tomorrow, or which ever one has my answer - from anybody

Good Luck with the rest of your Skin!

It's 18:43 and I just came back from lunch with my friends. We went to Japanese restaurant and after that they stuffed me with loads of Italian ice cream so I'm really full now and I have to digest it a bit before I will be able to continue with my skin so I will watch a movie and after that it's back to skinning for me.
