help a developing webmistress

Okay, so there are all these SUPER COOL alias sites and stuff... like Alias-media, uncovered, this one, vartanho, sarkgasm, all of which I frequent. I'm building my web design skills cuz I really love it, but I've kind of hit a wall. I know a significant amount of HTML and i'm proficient in Photoshop 7 and Elements, and Go Live and Dreamweaver, but... i need a lead in.

Anybody know where to find some good tutorials, or are willing to help me out? I really love web design and I'd love to keep learning.... possibly be like all these fantastic webmaster/mistresses in the future.

Thanks in advance!
