Well thank you , Goddess! What a nice thing to read first thing on a Monday morning!  Smiley

To VaguelyVogue, I agree w/ plainmabel- you might want to get someone to design it for you.  I worked out a deal with my web designer where she sets up the layout and graphics on the site, and I add content and all the paypal buttons.  This gives her less work, and keeps her costs lower, but still allows me to have an attractive site and the expertise of someone who does this for a living.  
I taught myself how to use Dreamweaver (which is what she designs on) we share all the files and upload on the same FTP account for my site.  
Everyday I learn a little bit more about Photoshop or Dreamweaver, which lets me update my site as I see fit, instead of having to wait/pay for my designer to update for me.
It's a bit tricky to get the realtionship flowing at first, but worth it!

If you want to learn how, sign up for a free host and then just pay or get a free redirect (http://www.tk, http://issweet.net, http://www.cjb.net, etc).  Some free hosts I've worked with:

Most also have upgrading later so once your site gets more reputable and you learn more HTML and stuff, you can pay a small price to upgrade and have no ads and you won't have to worry about moving your whole site.

I agree with aunt beep, dreamweaver and photoshop are awesome if you can afford them (mucho expensive...both are top of the line).  I've been fiddling around with dreamweaver for a little bit, and am versed in HTML, and it seems that you can kind of manuever around it without knowing much HTML.  Frontpage is also like this too, and is good for just learning.

If you need a shopping cart, check out:

We used the free version for over a year before growing to the point where we upgraded to some of the nice to have features.  

Many crafters stay with the free version.  Cheesy
