Unfortunately you can’t become great overnight at designing beautiful websites like css-tricks. I’m still not that great at the design of a site but I’ve gotten better over the years. Picking themes apart that others have built is a good start. You can learn a lot from someone’s work.
Personally I started in Web Design & Development by watching some of Chris Coyier’s videos of websites he built. He has gathered and shown a great wealth of information in his videos like PSD to HTML, WordPress, HTML/CSS concepts.
Other sources of information that helped me to this day are the http://net.tutsplus.com/ and http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/ sites. They offer great FREE material to learn like css-tricks. I really cut my teeth on the stuff that Jeffery Way was creating and building in his videos on nettuts.
The most important thing is to never give up and keep creating. I know how you feel because I’ve been there..
