Whoa, Ok. Well first off my advice would be to use a free site for now, not one where someone is hosting you.

So I would recommend either Geocities or Freewebs. I think Freewebs might be slightly easier (I used to use Geocities myself) and if you choose to have (until you get the hang of it) a Freewebs layout, you shouldn't have to worry too much about HTML, all you'll probably need is to learn a few basic codes.

I think probably you should think about before you sign up for anywhere, what you want to call your site, what sections is it going to have, if you have a blend section are you going to put your blends on one page, or have them in categories?

I did this when I first started and it helped me a lot, getting everything together and organized. :-)

Yes, as JF said, Geocities or Freewebs is a good place to start. I have a freewebs site, and it works just fine. :) And as she said also, you can pick a premade layout, that is easy to handle and you only need to know a few codes...you could also do HTML, but it takes a bit of learning. ;) If you need any help with it, I would be happy to try! :D

Yeah, www.freewebs.com has many new premade layouts, i am sure one will go with your theme, no matter who it is about. Also i am looking for a co-web miss/master to help me run some of my sites, you could become part of my team if you wanted (May be useful for experiance)

There were a couple of really good HTML tutorials at The Magic Box... darn where did that site go? Does anyone know? Those tutorials are what really helped me out when I had my first freewebs site.

I used http://w3schools.com ... I rolled through that like a wheel. It's probably the best site to use (IMO) if you want to learn coding :)

I also started out with Freewebs... I abandoned that in a month, when my friend gave me my very own cPanel and a website to go with it, but I'd recommend Freewebs to start with. ;)
