Website block

I have my new computer and an external monitor for my design work, and my first task is to use these tools to redesign my website. Yeah, remember that project? I had to push that one aside after i realized I had a laptop that could no longer successfully run an Adobe program without crashing. So now the designing begins. Easy, right?

Not so much. I'm stuck. I have a great welcome page, but that's about it. I like my theme, but I have no idea how to carry it over without being boring. I'm not even sure if I'm sold on the theme. I don't want to be boring, and I don't want it to look too plain, you know? I've been trying to mock it up in Illustrator, but I am at a loss.

This is frustrating.
